There are times when it’s best to allow your heart to overrule your head.
Being diagnosed with depression not only messed up Melanie Manning’s life, but her marriage as well. Her husband made it very clear that he considered her “damaged goods” and he didn’t have time to coddle a mentally ill wife. After his sudden death, Melanie knew she was destined to be alone. Loneliness sounded a hell of a lot better than exposing her illness to another man. Her self-esteem couldn’t survive another blow.
When state trooper Jack Horan meets Melanie, the attraction is immediate. Her deep blue eyes make him weak in the knees, but those eyes also hold a hint of sadness. Jack is determined to wipe away her pain, but how can he do that when Melanie refuses to let him get close to her?
Can Melanie learn to face her fears and trust her heart in the hands of another man?
I want to give massive kudos to Wehr for one simple fact that is the reason why I loved this book so much!!!
It states in the blurb that Melanie has been diagnosed with depression, and yes, she does battle it in this book. But the thing that I loved the most? Is the way that Wehr handled it throughout the book. She actually GAVE Melanie the symptoms of depression, and showed her dealing with them. And the best part about it? Is even after Melanie and Jack start getting together, the BDSM and sex with an alpha man doesn’t automatically “cure” Melanie. She still suffers from it. I loved that because so many books that have a character suffering from depression, they are suddenly cured from it when they meet their significant others. So thank you, for showing that it is possible to be in a relationship and still suffer.
But onto the rest of the book!!!
I loved the way that Wehr wrote the book showing that Jack was more than willing to give Melanie space and time to decide herself if she wanted to be in a relationship. He courted her, (even thou smutty stuff did happen on the date!) Jack’s character was one that was really easy to connect with because he was so … real. It’s as though you already know someone like him in your life.
Melanie was a great character as well, even with what I said above about her. She was also super easy to connect with and easy to love. Throughout the whole book I was rooting for her because she deserved to be happy. And being able to follow along as she realized that for herself was also great.
Overall, I couldn’t recommend this book enough!
Cool air assaulted her breasts. Jack suckled each nipple in turn. He tugged her dress further so it lay bunched at her waist. His licked her belly, then moved downward and delved into her naval. Soon, he was licking her pussy through her wet panties. The silken material triggered a friction so hot and intense that Mel bucked against his mouth.
She heard a loud ripping sound and gasped when his mouth covered her bare pussy. Dear Lord, the man had ripped her panties from her body. This dominant side of Jack had her panting for more of his rough handling. He dropped kisses along her inner thighs, growled, and covered the flesh between her legs with his mouth. Mel screamed and dug her fingernails into his shoulders. She rocked her pussy and shamelessly rode his face as wave upon wave of an incredible orgasm overtook her. She swore her toes curled.
Jack moved back up her body and rested his forehead against hers. She kissed him frantically and tasted herself on his lips. Mel reached between their bodies and stroked his cock. She licked her lips.
“Baby, you’re looking to have a cock shoved down your throat.”
Mel gently pushed at his chest and dropped to the floor on both knees. “I want you deep in my throat while I suck you off.” Her hands shook slightly as she slowly unbuckled his leather belt. She carefully rasped his zipper down inch by agonizing inch.
Mel’s mouth went dry at the erection tenting his white boxers. The man had to be sporting at least nine inches. Moisture trailed down the inside of her thighs. She was so ready for this. For him. The mere thought of taking his hard male flesh into her mouth had her on the verge of another orgasm.
Jack arched upward and pushed his boxers to his feet. His cock sprang free amidst a cluster of dark hair. Mel’s heart raced. He was so big, so hard, and oh-so-mouthwatering she couldn’t wait to wrap her lips around him. Savoring his musky scent, she leaned forward and tongued his cockhead, licking away the drop of fluid seeping from the tiny slit. He tasted delicious, and she dove in for another nibble. Jack’s slow hiss boasted Mel’s self-esteem. She hadn’t felt this confident in her ability to please a man in years. His praise for her prowess urged her to take him fully into her mouth until the hairs on his groin tickled her nose. She sucked him greedily as if he was a lollipop.
“God, woman, your mouth is incredible.”
Mel licked his cock from base to tip and cleaned the milky white fluid seeping from his cockhead. Scooting closer, she ran her fingers down his slick, muscled arms and gripped his hands. She curled her fingers around his wrists and lifted his hands to her head. Jack cupped her jaw and forced her mouth to open wider.
I can totally get into reading about strong, stern heroes and the sassy women who love to drive them up a wall. LOL. Of course, when these ladies get way too out of hand, the hero doesn’t think twice about dishing out a good spanking. I write Contemporary DD Romance and Historical Western Spanking Romance.
Aside from reading, I like to go for long walks. I also have a weakness for animals. My yard is full of squirrels, chipmunks and birds. Deer pass through once in a while which is always nice to see. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without my furry, feathered friends. Thank you so much for buying my books. I’d love to hear from you. E-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
