Derek Alexander is a retired Marine, ex-cop, and the top investigator in his field. Melissa Jones is a small-town girl trying to escape her troubled past.
When the two intersect in a bar in Arizona, their sexual chemistry is off the charts. But what is revealed during their “one week stand” only complicates matters.
Because she’ll do everything in her power to get away from the past, but he’ll do everything he can to hold her.
Standalone, M/F, HEA.
I’m all for a book that not only includes a hot Alpha Marine (droooool) but also has up against the wall sex in the first chapter. Oh yes, my friends, it opens with a bang…pun very intended. I know that’s probably overused, but I just couldn’t help myself. Anyway…
Melissa is at a resort on business when she meets Derek, aforementioned grade-A sex God. They embark on what they think is a one night stand, but ends up being a week long affair that is more than either bargained for. Will secrets of the past doom this passionate love affair before it has a chance to begin?
First, I have to say, the chemistry between Melissa and Derek is OFF THE CHARTS. I usually prefer a little more sexual build up in my books, but from the get-go these two are just too hot for each other to deny themselves or the reader, so I’m all for it! It’s a pretty short read, so it had to get to the point in order to fit in all the steamy horizontal and vertical sex in this novel. You know me well enough by now to know that all that sex is a sure way into my perverted little heart.
Aside from the steamy hot beef injections, this book is actually not predictable as you may assume. I mean, there were a few things I called from the get-go, but there were several major plot points that I did not see coming and I have to give props for that. I read so many books that are so formulaic, even if I enjoy them, they’re not original. This book had some very original factors that added to my overall enjoyment of it. It had a great characters and a great plot that hooked you from the beginning. And did I mention all that hot four legged frolicking?
As a debut novel, I give a standing ovation. Where have you been hiding your lovely, depraved little mind Tia Louise…and when can we get more? 4.5 Stars!
