He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marcy with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn't sound like a bad idea... and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and very hot body of her best friend's older brother.
After years of waiting in painful silence, police officer Aaron Robinson finally has Marcy’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marcy he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness…
I'd like to keep Aaron for myself!
From the very beginning of this story, the chemistry between Aaron and Marcy was explosive. They couldn't seem to get their hands off each other, regardless of being in an openly public place. For Marcy, this was like a fairy tale. Who would have know that her high school crush was attracted to her?
Marcy was a single mom and she was so focused on raising her daughter that she seemed to have missed out on her own life. She claimed she was happy just being Claire's mother, but when Aaron came around, doubts started forming in her head.
Aaron was the protector of the town. After doing some time in the army, he decided that the small town cop position was the best for him. He was great at his job, too. He was all around irresistible, especially when he's trying to be noble.
One thing I was a bit disappointed about in this book is the lack of conflict. The conflict was more implied than showed. In my opinion, a great book always has a good conflict, then reaches its climax, and resolves itself towards the end.
Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The giddiness factor totally made up for it. This book had the best epilogue I've ever read. It's totally romantic and most definitely a fantasy, but hey, that's why we read books, right? :)
