Title: Thirst Trap
Author: Chelle Sloan

Contemporary Romance; Social Media Romance

Rule #1 of social media: Don’t post anything you might regret.
Rule #2: Don’t fall in love with a thirst trap.

 

Definition of a thirst trap: A sexy photograph, video or message posted on social media for the intent of causing others to profess their attraction.

Thirst traps are meant to entice. To make women wish for something they can’t have.

You’re not supposed to fall in love with one.

In my defense, I didn’t mean to. It was just supposed to be one night of fun. One night where I could forget my responsibilities and family name. Where I could just be a girl in a bar.

I didn’t expect the sexy small town cop to come sliding into my life on his knees. Literally. Or his dance moves to sear themselves into my memory. Or that kiss…

To his millions of followers he’s Officer Sexy. To me he’s just Jake. The only man who has ever made me want more. The only one who has ever seen me for me.

The man I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with.

“Pardon me, I couldn’t help but notice that one of you lovely ladies is getting married soon?”

Some women have a thing for arms. Some go for abs or a smile. Me? Give me a man with a deep voice that I just know would say filthy things to me behind closed doors, and I am a pile of mush.

This man, who I’ve not yet made eye contact with? This voice coming from behind me? I don’t even need to look at him to know that he would leave me satisfied in all the right ways. Add in his country twang, and I’m already melting.

“That’s me!” Ella Mae squeals, raising her hand like she’s in grade school.

The mystery man laughs, and shit, his laugh is just as deep and sexy as his voice.

I want to turn around and get a look at him. But I’m afraid if I do, it will ruin the mental picture I have quickly conjured. In my mind, he’s a bit rugged. He’s wearing those country-boy jeans that fit in all the right places and leave nothing to the imagination. And he’s wearing a cowboy hat. A real one. Not one you can buy at the souvenir shop at the airport.

And plaid. He’s definitely wearing a plaid shirt. I bet his sleeves are rolled up, showing off his forearms.

Okay, so maybe I have a thing for arms, too.

“Well then, darlin’, what kind of gentleman would I be if I didn’t offer to buy you and your friends a drink?”

“I’ll take a drink!” Emmilene yells from the other side of Ella Mae. I quickly look over at her and realize that she’s staring at this man like he’s dinner, and she hasn’t eaten in days.

That’s all the cue I need to turn around and finally put a face to the image I’ve concocted in my head.

Sweet baby Jesus.

He’s… I don’t even have words. And I’m never speechless.

Though I have a feeling if this man were to get me naked, he’d be leaving me speechless for a whole different reason.

He’s what a man should look like. In every definition of that phrase.

I was mostly right about the choice of clothes. I hit the nail on the head with the plaid and jeans. Instead of the cowboy hat, he has opted for a backward trucker cap. Usually, I’m not a fan of that look. But on this guy? I’m a fan.

A big, big fan.

Then there are the things I didn’t imagine about him, but I don’t even know if I could have if I tried.

The skin I can see is bronzed only the way it can be from working outside in the southern sun. His muscles fill out his shirt just right to pull at the fabric, but not too much where it might rip. His smile is that fine line between cocky and confident and shows off a dimple in his left cheek.

Then there are his eyes. They are the color of my favorite milk chocolate.

And they are currently burning into me right now.

“And what about you, sweetness?” he asks, his voice softening a bit, though the look in his eyes is more intense. “What can I get you? You look a little thirsty.”

You.

I almost said it. It was on the tip of my tongue because that’s literally the only word I can think of.

But I don’t have a chance to answer. Just as who knows what word is about to come out of my mouth, the unmistakable first beat of the song “Pony” comes blaring through the jukebox. The song might be as old as I am, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know it.

And apparently, so does Sexy Plaid Cowboy Man.

He reaches for Ella Mae’s hand, his hips slowly starting to move in beat with the music, and when I turn to look at my best friend, her face is twenty different shades of red. I don’t know if this man realizes that he just picked the shyest bachelorette in the history of bachelorettes to try and give an impromptu lap dance.

“What’s a bachelorette party without a dance?” he asks, bringing her out of her chair. “Don’t worry, I don’t bite.”

“I… no… I can’t!” she squeals, immediately turning toward me. “Here! Dance with Whitley!”

“What?” I let out, not having a second to take in what’s happening before Ella Mae grabs my hand, yanks me off my stool, and slingshots me into the hardest chest I’ve ever felt.

I look up to see his brown eyes taking me in, and that cocky smile is back with full force.

“Your friend doesn’t want a dance?” he says, his voice hitting me even harder this close to him.

“She’s shy,” I say, trying not to melt from the sound of his deep timbre.

“Are you?” he asks, a hint of mischief playing on his face.

I don’t break eye contact, though I can see Emmilene out of the corner of my eye, her mouth wide open as she can’t believe what is happening.

Oh, this just got so much better.

“Absolutely not. What do you got, cowboy?”

My Review...

This new author continues the scoring run of stories with this new novella set in the Nashville Fury world!

This lovely and too short story features Whitley and Jake. 

Whitley is just enjoying time away from her world, to just be Whitley and not just her family’s name and legacy. A weekend away and an absolutely smoking hot meet-cute with Jake aka “Officer Sexy”. 

Jake can never say no to a dare and what a dare this was! 

I loved the dual POVs in this story, the dialogue was on point and Ms. Sloan has a great way to write humor into her story.

You get a bit of angst, a ton of heat and swoons aplenty with this cute, funny novella. I just wonder…was Jake’s character based on a real thirst trap?

Cover

 

Blurb

Dahlia Akana has no idea where she’s going in life.

All she’s ever wanted to do is travel, and her inner circle pressuring her to figure out her purpose only makes her wanderlust grow stronger. But she’s comfortable being a nanny to her nieces in the small Pennsylvania town where her sister lives. Though she’s far overstayed her desired timeline, it’s a place filled with friends and familiarity while she plots her next move.

Until she meets the devastatingly gorgeous, obnoxious rookie who is slated to be the next superstar on the town’s top tier baseball team. He’s everything she doesn’t want, but can’t seem to stay away from. As they spend more time together, she discovers that he might just be the anchor she’s always looked for.

When secrets, lies, and a humiliating public scandal rock their world, will she be able to stay with him? Fight for him? Or will her age-old tactic of fleeing erase any shot at a happily ever after?

Garrett Chester has always known exactly what he wants.

To be the best pitcher in the history of the major leagues. And luckily, with more talent in his pinky than other people have in their entire body, he’s well on his way. It’s his attitude that leaves something to be desired. Cocky, reckless and soaking up his newfound fame, the rookie attracts the attention of the tabloid press.

When he meets the feisty woman just as beautiful as the flower she’s named after, she gives him a refreshing reality check. With each passing day, not only does he fall harder, but she makes him want to be a better man.

Except the past that haunts him inevitably catches up, and ends up taking her down with him. Alone, exposed and cast out, it’s a reminder of the childhood trauma that has always plagued him. Can he put the rumors to rest, piece together a career in shambles, and be the hero she needs?

My Review...

The Callahan Series.

Another new story in this series, more characters to fall for! I am so enjoying this series that Ms. Aarons has created and this newest story is something for the record books!

This is the story of Dahlia and Walker. A story of opposites attracting and how your past can certainly make you the person you are today.

Oh how I really disliked Walker at first, cocky, arrogant and with a swagger that wouldn’t quit. But as the story unfolded and you realize why he is the way he is…well then I came to love him. A true testament to the talent of Ms. Aarons to make any character lovable and worth redemption. 

Dahlia, oh how I loved her wanderlust soul. I can so empathize and “see” her. I admired her take no prisoners attitude and how she was able to realize what was causing her to drift.

There are so many secondary characters that I hope will get their stories told, I hope this isn’t the end of the series!

Blurb:

A sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Harloe Rae where a billionaire CEO battles against a snarky redhead who has her own agenda.

 

“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but I’ve never been a good liar.”

That’s his initial offense against me.

Don’t worry—there’s plenty more where that came from.

 

Landon Winters is colder than his last name suggests.

Cruel and callous too.

I’m certain he finds pleasure in making others miserable.

 

He’s a billionaire by his own making—not satisfied with simply inheriting a white collar and silver spoon.

Landon’s arrogance is so thick I could choke on the stench alone.

He’s also responsible for gouging a jaded chip into my shoulder.

 

The only saving grace is never having to see him again.

Wishful thinking is a fickle beast.

 

My boss just announced that Landon is my latest client.

I’ll need to impress him or kiss my promotion goodbye.

Either way, this is my chance to get even.

 

Revenge is all I see.

The price for redemption is steep.

Landon will pay a small fortune in humiliation.

And I’ll walk away filthy rich in vindication.

My Review...

I so want to be a member of the “Haters Club”! If there are members like Landon Winters.

This new story from Ms. Rae is the definition of a thin line between love and hate. Landon and Savannah are the epitome of this!

I loved the abrasiveness between these two characters, I also admired and mentally cheered on Vannah for not only taking what was thrown at her but giving it back to Landon just as good! 

You can see the chemistry between the two of them jump off the pages and the dialogue was absolutely fantastic! I also enjoyed the fact that Ms. Rae doesn’t drown the reader with backstory on Landon and Vannah, she gives enough to know what makes them tick but then focuses on the here and now.

I have yet to read a story by this talented writer that I haven’t fallen in love with and this newest addition to her library is no exception, this story is phenomenal! Well done!

BLURB:

“Kiss me. Just this once . . . please Walker.”

Those whispered words were my undoing . . .

As the most hated player in baseball, I had two options: either clean up my image or pack my bags. Being traded wasn’t an option which only meant one thing, I had to become compliant.

That’s how I found myself sharing a small bistro table with Kate Chapman, the Chicago Bobbies newest PR Manager. Devastatingly beautiful, vastly intelligent, and incredibly cunning, she knows exactly how to handle my grumpy demeanor.

It was supposed to be simple. Book some PR events, show up, smile for the camera, and be done. But one massive mistake on my end sends me into the trenches with Kate, forcing me to open up to her.

Innocent glances turn into cordial encounters.
Secret touches turn into tempting invitations.
And dangerous nights alone turn into consuming desperation.

I’ve never wanted a woman as much as I want her. And I know she wants me, but there’s a no fraternizing with the players rule. Neither of us can afford to lose our jobs, but we also can’t seem to keep our hands off each other either.

EXCERPT:

I slip on my clothes, going for a pair of jeans and a long-sleeved Henley. I push the sleeves up, still heated from the shower. I leave my hat in my locker, opting for a quick swab of styling pomade through my hair. I couldn’t care less what I look like, but Coach always likes us to be somewhat presentable after a game in case we run into any press.

Hungry and ready for my bed, I head out of the locker room and am making my way toward the players’ exit when a throat clears behind me. I glance over my shoulder to find Kate Chapman standing against the wall, her purse draped over her shoulder and a beautiful smile gracing her delicately freckled face.

She quickly gives me a once-over and says, “It was the socks.”

I can’t help it, I let out a low chuckle while slowly shaking my head and turning toward her. Hands in my pockets, I say, “It wasn’t the socks.”

Her mouth drops open in disbelief as she approaches me. “It was so the socks.” She points her finger at me.

“Don’t even deny it.”

“It was all my practice.”

“Yeah, practice with me. Just admit it, Rockwell, you had fun last night, the socks were a good luck charm, and you played your ass off tonight.”

I don’t believe in superstitions, which is unheard of when it comes to a baseball player, but I’ve never geared my play around being a habitual player, either. Instead, I do what feels right. So, believing in socks having a special power and helping me gather some hits tonight—nah, not real. But I will say this—having my socks up reminded me why I was behind that plate. It reminded me of being small again and taking joy in the little things.

Was it the socks? Maybe.

Was it the thought of the girl standing in front of me?

Maybe a little more.

“It wasn’t the socks.”

Her head falls back as she groans. “You’re so stubborn.” She makes eye contact with me again. “Do you realize that?”

“Yeah.” I rock on my heels, trying not to stare at her too much.
Just picture me pitching to you.

When I said that would be too distracting, I meant it. With her softly curled hair and her gorgeous smile that doesn’t seem to ever falter—unless I’m a total dick and walk out on her—she’s caught my eye.

She’s starting to imprint herself on my brain.

She’s starting to make me feel shit I shouldn’t be feeling.

“Well, I’m—”

“What are you doing right now?” I ask out of the blue, surprising myself, and her.

“Uh, I was going to give you a hard time and then go home?” she says with a hint of question at the end.

I nod at her. “Hungry?”

She eyes me suspiciously. “Starving.”

“Want to get some food?”

She chews on her bottom lip, thinking about her answer, and I know it’s not in a joking around way, but more so she’s afraid. Afraid of me, possibly. Afraid for her job, most likely.

So, I add, “You know, to discuss business.”

It’s against team policy to fraternize with the players. I know that, she knows that, but, for the life of me, after seeing that infectious joy on her face, I had to ask her. I had to try to spend more time with her.

“Well, if it’s business . . .” She smiles brightly and then nods behind her. “Follow me.”

My Review...

I have read almost all of Ms. Quinn’s books, and I am here to tell you, my loyal followers, this is one of her best! 

This story has it all! The growly ultra alpha, the smart, sassy, and take charge heroine that smooths his rough edges, and holy smokes the slow burn in this story is gonna make you melt!

Let’s just add to this already dynamic and epic mix by adding Ms. Quinn’s brand of humor and OH the surprises! There are so many that left me gasping and saying “Holy Crow!”  With the right dash of angst to make this story one for the record books! 

I fell in love so hard with Walker…he checks every box on my list for heroes! He is the epitome of the saying “Still waters run deep…” and my friends he is like the Mariana Trench!

And let me just say, the chemistry between these two burn up the pages! I also absolutely felt heartbreak and was cheering hard for both Walker and Kate. I admired their strength and their honesty with one another, there was no pussyfooting around with either one of the characters and I absolutely loved it!

Totally can be read as a stand-alone, this book is going to knock your socks off! Definitely in the running for my “Best of 2021 Reads!”

Friends With Benedicts, a brand new, heart felt rom-com from Staci Hart, is finally LIVE!! Who’s reading? Grab your copy today from your favorite online book retailer!

Amazon | AppleBooks | Kobo | B&N

Timing is everything.

Presley Hale and Sebastian Vargas are no strangers to goodbye. Their high school summers were spent wrapped up in each other until she would inevitably go home to California. One season after college, Sebastian finally escaped the little Texas town to travel the world, and they said goodbye for what they thought might be the last time.

Sebastian went one way. Presley went the other.

For the first time in five years, they’re both in town, but the timing is no better than ever. So the only thing to do is what they do best. Keep it casual.

Friends with benefits.

They’ve done it before—doing it again will be easy.

But their hearts don’t get the memo.

When the lines of their arrangement blur, Presley and Sebastian are faced with decisions they’ve avoided for years. And that’s not even their biggest problem.

A small town in danger of failing.

A secret that could tear them apart.

And two hearts that can’t hide anymore.

They’ve shared so many summers, but none compare to what they’ll face.

Timing is everything.

And their time is almost up.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

My Review...

This newest story from Ms. Hart is going to knock your socks off! As a bit of an Elvis fan myself, I loved how she paid homage to the King!

This story between Sebastian and Presley is fun, swoony, steamy and all the good things you come to expect from Staci Hart! Her writing talent shines with this tale of timing, love and unexpected surprises.

A summer fling turns into so much more between Sebastian and Presley and it was both heartbreaking and beautiful to see it unfold. 

Presley is such a remarkable heroine, she is a single mom, she is taking care of her mom and she is an overall bada$$! She is doing what she has to do to take care of her family, forgoing her own dreams to make sure those around her are happy. When Sebastian comes home, she is brave in telling him things that he needs to know.

Sebastian is a family man, he loves his mom and Abuela something fierce. He is back home to check in and make sure things are going well.   Also, it is a lovely surprise to find out Presley is back home. 

This can totally be read as a standalone, but as a huge Staci Hart fan, I loved “seeing” past characters make a brief appearance. I can’t wait to read what comes next from Ms. Hart and I know you are going to love this story just as much as I did!

My Review...

Lakeside Cottage Book 1

All hail the queen of over 40 romance! Ms. Dunbar has done it yet again with this newest story and the beginning of what’s going to be an epic series. 

This story is about living life to its fullest, don’t wait till “later” do it today. This story is about family, those by blood and by those by choice.

This is the story of Autumn and Logan. Both with the experiences and lives that have shaped them into the people they are. 

Autumn is a born caregiver, a nurturing soul with a bad track record of picking men who use her shamelessly. She decided she wants someone to love her unconditionally and wants a have a baby to make that happen.

Logan, oh my swoons! Grab your proverbial pearls people, he is going to melt you into a puddle! He has known Autumn as his best friend’s little sister, but now he sees her as the woman he wants to be with.

This story also embraces the lifelong friendship of four men, each with a story to tell. A beautiful lakeside cottage, a two-week vacation where memories are reminisced and life-changing secrets are revealed.

This was a moving story, it brought me to tears and made me laugh. As an over 40 gal myself, this story really hit me in the feels and heartstrings! I cannot wait to see what comes next.

As We Are by Claudia Burgoa is now live!

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa comes a single-dad sports romance where the only thing more heartfelt than the small town is the love story.

I never wanted to go back to Baker’s Creek.

But when it rains, it pours. I lost my job, lost the guy, and lost the house. The perfect trifecta of ruin.

Ten years after I said I can make it on my own, I have no choice but to ask for help. But it’s my mother who needs me now…

So it’s back to where I don’t belong.

There’s no opportunity in my hometown. The only job that I can get is nannying. For a player from the Vancouver Orcas. “Mean” Mills Aldridge is going to be my new boss… and I’m supposed to pretend he isn’t sex on skates.

Between avoiding the town mean girls, helping my parents, and trying not to behave like a puck bunny, my job with that sweet boy is fast becoming just like the rest of my life–one big complication.

My only escape is my late-night chats with Mills.

The confessions we share make me feel like I belong. The stolen kisses make it hard to remember why I ever left.

Until the opportunity I’ve been waiting for arrives, and it’s time for me to say goodbye.

But can I leave that little boy and his father behind?

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a romantic comedy saga that’s swoonful and sexy, with the right mix of ugly-cry moments and sweet seductions.

My Review...

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers

I am falling in love with this family, each brother’s story just makes me fall harder.

This is Mills and Hadley’s story. This is a fast paced story that made me beg for more when it was over! I enjoyed the humor, the heat and the heart of this story and I am sure you are going to love it too!

I so love how this family, even in its dysfunctionality, embraces each new member with a whole heartedness that makes me just swoon. I love the family dynamics, and how each story it evolves more and more. 

Mills and Hadley’s chemistry is off the charts sweet and spicy. The hero’s in Ms. Burgoa’s stories are always dedicated to the women in their lives. 

I can’t wait to see Vance’s story, I can’t wait to see the mysteries of their father revealed and when are we going to see the letters!! Gaaaahhh! The letters!

There’s a small complication.
A beautiful, sexy complication named Hanna.

A Kiss for A Kiss, an all-new second chance-at-love mature adult romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

I’m Jake Masterson, single dad, and the General Manager of Seattle’s NHL team. I walked away from a career as a player so I could raise my daughter. For the last twenty-plus years, Queenie has been my main priority, but now she’s getting married.
And there’s a small complication.
A beautiful, sexy complication named Hanna.
She’s my son-in-law’s older sister. Or at least that’s how they were raised. The truth is a little more scandalous than that.
I’ve been drawn to her from the moment I laid eyes on her. And I spent months trying to keep a lid on that attraction.
Until we finally give in.
It starts with one searing kiss, but quickly ends with us between the sheets—and in the shower, and the hot tub, you get the picture—and turns into months of sneaking around.
Here’s the problem: we live on opposite ends of the country. It can’t be anything but casual. And as I’ve already said…it’s complicated.
But when Hanna finds out she’s pregnant…suddenly things get real serious.

My Review...

Thank you Ms. Hunting for writing another fantastic story in this series! I also applaud you for writing about finding love in your 40’s! Thank you, thank you!

This story of Hannah and Jake swept me away! Yes they were older but that didn’t diminish their chemistry in and out of the bedroom. I loved that they have experience in life. 

When Jake and Hannah’s friendship turns physical, well lets just say that age and wisdom don’t come into play. 

Their relationship is complicated on an epic scale, old hurts and scars rear their heads for both Hannah and Jake. Yet they learn to navigate it with grace and maturity.

This story has a realism that I feel is just one of the many writing talents of Ms. Hunting, I was excited to see this story from her and reading it was a nice affirmation for us more vintage gals, that we may be “older” but that doesn’t make us any less deserving of swoons and smexy times!

Like any cowboy, he’s good with a rope and knows exactly how to tie me up.
But what if I want him to tie me down?

Tie Me Down, an all new smoldering second-chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is now live!

Just friends.
That’s all Beckett Weaver and I have ever been.
Sure, he’s a hot cowboy who left Wall Street behind to take over his family’s ranch. Yes, I’ve had a secret crush on him since we were seventeen. And who wouldn’t appreciate those strong hands, that massive chest, and the way he fills out a pair of Levis?
He makes a girl sweat just looking at him . . . and I look. A lot.
But I’m a single mom trying to move on with my life, and he’s running that ranch single-handedly while taking care of his elderly father. We don’t even live in the same state. I only returned to my hometown of Bellamy Creek to sell my late mother’s house, and he just invited me and my son to stay with him because he’s got a big heart.
That’s not the only big thing he’s got–which I discover the night I finally sneak across the hall to his bedroom and shed my inhibitions right alongside my pajamas. And once we give into each other, we can’t stop.
The hayloft. The bed of his truck. The dock by the pond.
Nothing has ever felt so right, but his past has taught him not to believe in happily ever after, and every perfect night I spend in his arms brings us closer to goodbye.
Like any cowboy, he’s good with a rope and knows exactly how to tie me up.
But what if I want him to tie me down?

My Review...

The Bellamy Creek Series

This final story of this series is a bittersweet and beautiful ending to this story of four lifelong friends and the ladies who they fell for.

This is the story of Maddie and Beckett. 

Oh how I fell for Beckett. The strong silent type, the one who put family and legacy above all. His story broke my heart a bit too, to not be able to fully articulate what he was feeling and what he wanted. Unknowingly, his past has formed the man he has become, the good and the burden. 

Maddie is coming back to Bellamy Creek to seek closure. To finalize the selling of her childhood home. She is coming back home and seeing just how things have changed and how some things have stayed the same. 

When Maddie and Beckett are in the same space, sparks fly and feelings run deep. 

This story is about a love that is everlasting, even when it’s not expressed. 

I enjoyed the history of Beckett and Maddie, it warmed my heart to read about their friendship, how it spanned the years and survived the miles that separated them.

It’s bittersweet to read this final book in the series, but it was a beautiful story weaved with family, heart and above all else unconditional love and acceptance.

Sometimes, it takes becoming a monster in order to kill one.

The Silencer by RC Boldt is now live!

USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt brings us an unforgettable tale of betrayal, vengeance, and redemption in her new romantic thriller, THE SILENCER…

No one wants to admit that sometimes only evil can extinguish other evil.
Each time I drain the life from their bodies, I inch closer to purging my past.
Then a by-the-book FBI agent–one as astute as he is handsome–threatens my plans…and what’s left of my heart.
He doesn’t believe there are exceptions to breaking the law. That’s where we differ.
They once silenced me and countless others, but now I’ve reversed our roles.
Because, this time, it’s my turn to be the silencer.

**The Silencer is a dark and gritty romantic suspense that deals with sensitive topics which may not be suitable for all readers.

My Review...

Holy vengeance Batman! This new story from R.C. Boldt had me from the prologue to the final page and left me breathless!

This is the story of justice versus vengeance and how it’s not just black and white, but many, many shades of gray.

I was so invested in all the characters in this story, from the swoony Landon Lattimer to the cunning and strong Kennedy Alexandre. Many characters played such crucial roles in this story, but you have to read it slowly and I even went back to some chapters to make sure I didn’t miss anything. 

I loved the air of mystery and intrigue in this story and when things become clear, it’s going to knock you upside the head and make you want to read the whole story again, knowing what you find out!

The chemistry between Kennedy and Landon burns up the pages and there were times I was clutching my proverbial pearls it was so smoking hot! I also admired both Kennedy and Landon’s ability not to give up and to demand what they wanted and needed. Both physically and emotionally.

I have yet to read a story from Ms. Boldt that hasn’t absolutely blown me away with its originality.  This story is another jewel in her crown of amazing storytelling.
