PASSION NEVER SLEEPS.
Small-town barista Mandy Monroe will never forget the first time she saw the man of her dreams. Every morning, this impossibly gorgeous hunk would ride his bike past her coffee shop, fueling her wildest romantic fantasies. But when she learns that her crush is none other than vineyard owner Marc Reed, one of America’s hottest young entrepreneurs, Mandy knows her fantasy will never become a reality. That is, until Marc’s home burns down and he moves in with her…
As a roommate, Marc is as warm, friendly, and down-to-earth as he is rich, famous, and heartstoppingly handsome. But beneath his laidback exterior beats the heart of a red-blooded man with an uncontrollable urge to take Mandy in his arms and make mad, passionate love to her. Mandy is everything he’s ever wanted; she’s sweet, smart, funny, and irresistibly sexy. But how he can tell her the truth about his past? How can he explain the nightmares that haunt him every night? And how can he tell Mandy he loves her…without putting her heart, and her life, in danger?
Once again, Douglas has blown me away with another great story. I do want to say this though — I actually haven’t read all of the books in this series yet, but I wasn’t lost at all when it came to Marc and Mandy’s story. So on that note, I would say that for me personally, this wasn’t a true series and can be read as a standalone.
But, enough of all of that. Back to the story!
I really was shocked at how much I enjoyed this story because it started out with a sexy start, but this book ended up being a lot more than just a book filled with sex. Of course, Marc and Mandy have some great chemistry and you could really feel that throughout the book. But I really liked how Mandy was there for Marc, even when he thought she would leave.
This book does have a fair bit of suspense and drama happening in it, which was done in a great way because it wasn’t overdone by any means, but it was done in a way that kept the story and suspense going.
The amount of details that went into this book were done extremely well also. I didn’t feel like I couldn’t understand what was going on, it was explained in a way that I could follow along and not feel confused.
Overall, once again I’m completely pleased with this author’s book and I can’t wait to read more from Douglas in the future.
