Erica Lynn provides heat and heart with this spicy contemporary romance. Lynette Montgomery is such a wonderful heroine and pretty much from first mention I wanted life to treat her well. She seemed to have the weight of the world on her shoulders, however she wasn't nasty or self pitying and she seemed to simply accept everything as it comes and handle it. She doesn't even truly complain to her friends. Not that she was truly a martyr, she's simply likable. Robert Barletta is a sweet and sexy hero who is absolutely perfect for Lynette and her nephews. I went in to this story expecting it to be a full on erotic read but what I got instead was a wonderful romance with some fabulously hot scenes. Every character I was introduced to was well developed and amiable. I cannot wait to read all about Lynette's brother's romance.
Needing to just let off a little steam and live in the moment Lynette Montgomery has a mind-blowing one-night stand at her friend's party. Robert Barletta cannot stop thinking about the hot night he spent with the sexy blond and is pleasantly surprised to run into her when he's forced to take some time off.
When Lynette Montgomery's older sister dies from breast cancer, she quickly steps in to take care of her two young nephews. The boys are sweet, caring, and Lynette has no idea what she's doing. Terrified of failing her sister, she does everything she can to present herself as the parental figure she feels the boys need, even swearing off the sexy-as-can-be cop she just so happened to have a one-night stand with outside of her best friend's house.
Robert Barletta is a decorated and respected cop with the San Antonio PD. After having just played a key role in bringing down Houston and San Antonio's largest drug operation, he should be on top of the world. Unfortunately for him, he can't get that one night with a smoking hot blonde temptress out of his head.
When he's forced to take some time off, and the two come face to face, will they be able to keep their attraction on the back burner? Or has this game of cat and mouse just started?
