Three years ago, single mom Megan lost her husband and best friend. The pain of that loss sent her to a very dark place and she hasn't fully crawled out of it yet. She knows Liam wants her, that it could be something so much more, but she just can't open herself up to potential pain again. But after one memorable night, Liam is done with waiting. He's ready to bring his girl back to life.
Liam is just so... swoony. Sigh. I absolutely fell in love with him. He's got the sexy alpha male thing going and is a cop to boot. His caring side is as much of a turn on as his dirty mouth and together it is a potent combination that will make anyone melt. Megan has been through more pain than any one person should have to endure and it is no surprise how broken she is because of it. But watching her finally accept what Liam is offering and open up to him was so heart warming and beautiful. I loved them together. And I loved all of these alpha men being wrapped around the finger of her spunky five year old daughter. That made for some priceless scenes. There were some laugh out loud moments mixed in with the swoon and steam and it was all just very fantastic.
|"Next time you come against my cock, you scream my name."|
|"Last chance. And this time I mean last one, darlin.' We take this step and make no doubt about it, you will be mine. You give me this and I fucking promise you that I will never make you regret taking that step. You ready to jump from that chapter you've been skimming through and skip into mine?"|
|"I need t get you naked and my mouth on you so I can remind you why you love me so much."|
**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
|His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”|
I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.
Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.
He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.
I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.
His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. “Feels like heaven,” he says softly. “Everything, darlin’. Feels like everything.”
Title: Bleeding Love
Author: Harper Sloan
Series: Hope Town #2
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.
Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.
He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.
