Too weak to resist young Kelly Benton's attempts at seduction, Rowdy Mackay left home eight years ago. Duty as a U.S. Marine put a safe distance between temptation and the nubile Kentucky vixen. Now he's back home and ready to engage in the kind of erotic games that have earned him and his two cousins a Nauti-boy reputation in three counties.
Once it was Kelly's dream too-to feel the heat of the boy she desired. But an attack from a stalker still on the prowl has left Kelly terrified of a man's touch. Now as fear and desire converge, Rowdy fights to save her from the deadly threats of a stranger, to rid her of her demons, and to satisfy a hunger more powerful than either can imagine.
What I thought:
This is one of the better stories I have read by Lora Leigh. Strong characters outline a great story with some hot scenes. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get a really good steamy scene with all four, but it was still good. Kelly is strong, although she is a victim she fights to be rid of the fear and isn't afraid to admit that she is scared and excited to see what will happen now that Rowdy is finally home for good.
Rape, for most of us girls, is something that is hard to read and I admit I do hesitate before jumping into a romance novel that centers around a recovering victim. This, however, was well written and didn't make me uncomfortable as I read along.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
