Sam Crescent sets the sheets on fire with this erotic contemporary. Jack is not a prince in shining armour even though he does rescue Piper and her young brother. He is one bad criminal, the type of man who usually turns my stomach not amps my libido he is the perfect man for Piper because we get to see beyond the bad boy the rest of the world sees. Piper is a wonderful mixture of maturity beyond her years and naïveté that is unbelievable. She is resourceful and smart and altogether too kindhearted. I honestly could not get enough of this story, from the fantastically curvy heroine to the blood poundingly sexy gangster, it was thrilling in a forbidden way and while my Catholic guilt made an appearance or two I couldn't put this down if you had paid me. The sexy was both steamy and sensitive, the storyline both hopeful and gritty and the characters all took on larger than life roles but never seemed cliched or over the top. This author has fast become one of my favourites and I cannot wait to see where her next curvy heroine ends up.
Jack Sosa is not a nice guy, he knows it in fact everyone knows it. Everyone that is but the lovely and innocent Piper. Piper has always loved Jack for rescuing her from her abusive mother, but she's no longer a child and what she feels for him is not a schoolgirl crush. Can this virgin tempt the crime boss?
Jack Sosa knows the world of violence, sex, and danger. He grew up in that world, and as a man, he owns it. Then one day, while he is waiting for some cleaners to dispose of a body, a chubby girl sits with him, trying to make him feel better. He is a stranger and she only a young girl, but when she leaves, she takes a part of him with her.
Jack can’t let this angel go, so he keeps her, determined to protect her. Now four years later, she’s no longer a girl, but a beautiful woman, and Jack’s feelings have changed, too, growing into something far beyond protectiveness. He cannot hide them for much longer.
Piper has fallen in love with the man who saved her, but she never expects Jack to feel the same way. However, one kiss is all it takes. Even though Jack is twenty-four years her senior, she doesn’t care. He is the man she fell in love with, the man who makes her body burn hotter than any fire.
However, Piper doesn’t know the truth about the man she loves, and when she’s taken by his enemy, her world is turned upside down. Can she find it in her heart to love a killer? Can Jack live with nearly killing his virgin angel?
