Guilty Pleasure Alert! Repressed emotions, sexual need, self-recrimination. What's not to like? In a perfect world Lora Leigh would do nothing but write stories like these for people like me. Unfortunately the world's not perfect and I wait (not patiently) for her next release. This was definitely worth the wait.
Written from primarily Brenna's point of view, the reader is right there with her as she aches and suffers for Jase. And Jase is definitely worth suffering for. The ultimate alpha, tall dark and handsome. Did I mention rich? There's not much not to like about Jase, except his sense of morality that insists he keep his hands off Brenna. She he's sister after all. What???? No not really. Their parents married when they were younger, and through the years they have grown together and grown to love one another. Jase is older than Brenna, which adds another wrinkle. So sultry and steamy, you can feel the angst rise off the pages. I loved this story and you will too.
Brenna’s love for Jase has grown from a crush to a soul-searing need, a painful hunger…and an unrequited ache, because the savagely sexy Texan doesn’t feel the same. A bequest and stipulation in his father’s will have hardened Jase, it seems. Now she must endure three months of living under his roof. Three torturous, tension-filled months and Brenna will have fulfilled the stipulation; will be free to attempt to regain the heart lost to Jase so long ago.Since the age of eighteen, Jase has protected Brenna—from himself, as much as anyone else. Living with her proves too rousing even for his iron will. He’ll claim what’s his, take Brenna in ways he’d previously only dreamed, sink so deeply inside her luscious body he’ll never find his way out. And be damned if he’ll let her go.A scorching Texas summer can’t compete with blazing lust as Brenna gives in, gives over, gives all that she is to Jase, to the only man she’s every loved…to the one.
