Let me tell you something, those Nichols men sure know how to seduce a woman. Those dirty mouths? Dear lord! So Lauren gets right into it here with a heartbreaking prologues. I knew I was done for when the first few pages of the book made me a sobbing mess. But see, the pain was worth it because when we get an entire book of Brent grovelling and trying to make up for his assholery.
Shannon could have really held a grudge here and no one would have blamed her. But I admire her for being able to move on and not dwell too much on the past. They were just so smokin' hot together and made for a perfect second chance romance.
I do also have to take a moment to address Shannon's whacked out mom. Lauren did warn me about her, but damn, that woman was beyond crazy! And Ms. Blakely does have a thing for including psycho mother's for her heroines (see 21 Stolen Kisses and The Thrill of It). While this is very much a stand alone novel, the mama drama will carry over into each of the subsequent books about Shannon's brothers. I can't wait for those boys to get hit with love and to find out what the heck is going on with mommy dearest.
|They kissed like it was a first time, and a last time, and like it was all time. They kissed like two people who wanted to climb into each other’s skin, to smash into the other person. There were no doubts. No questions. She had to feel everything he felt.|
|“The shoes looked hot, and you’re hot, and I always liked to fuck you in shoes, because you used to leave them on and that was insanely hot. Which pretty much describes you. Hot.”|
|"You don’t even want to know what’s going through my head.” “Oh, I do. I do want to know.” “Grabbing your hair, pushing you against a chair. Lifting your ass in the air, and sinking deep into your sweet, wet pussy.”|
|“Are you tired?” “I don’t want to sleep.” “What do you want to do?” “I want you to fuck the day away.” “That is my specialty.”|
