Kate Landry, the daughter of an overzealous preacher, trusted her heart and body to the wrong person. This man took advantage of her insecurities and vulnerable self-image only to use her and leave when she became pregnant. Years later with her daughter grown, Kate is still unable to forget about the past. Liam St James was just passing through town looking for temporary work in Kate’s bar. He was a dominate and exactly what Kate needed. When Liam pushed Kate to do things that were outside her comfort zone Kate was at first scared but eventually gave into him. Liam was adamant that this was helping Kate only and nothing more. He was running from problems with his past and could not see someone like Kate ever falling in love with a broken man like him. Kate’s insecurities about the past kept her from admitting her true feelings about Liam. Would this couple ever be able to overcome their past and find a future with each other? This was a good story and the sex had a slow build but was very intense. The romance unfolded naturally and there was never a rush to it. My review was provided by Sexy Ways of Reading.

This started out with Kate arriving home after being on a ship for 2 weeks when it was suppose to be a lot shorter. Now she meets Liam. He is sexy and came into her bar and changed things so she is not big on change and fires him on the spot. Then one of the guys that have been friends and worked for her for years convinces her to rehire him. Even know she thinks he is bad news.
These two have combustible chemistry it steamed up my screen. Liam doesn’t want to settle down so he keeps Kate at arms length. Both have a communication issue. And both denied what is in their heart. This book was amazing with the amount of detail that went into the book. And the Chemistry in the words alone it draws you in deep.
If you want a book with sizzling hot sexy scenes. Chemistry that steams up your screen. Then this is your book. Its truly sexy offers you romance, and maybe even a happily ever after if the 2 people actually see whats in front of them. It ended a lot quicker then I expected.
I’ve always loved stories. Especially love stories. Growing up in the Midwest, I’d make up stories to my favorite TV shows – usually westerns.
As I got older, the stories didn’t relent. In fact, they only got stronger, the characters more insistent, until I had no choice but to put it all on paper. It’s become an obsession for me. One that I love.
When not sitting at my computer, I spend my time working as a substitute teacher and fitness instructor. Guess you could say I’m an equal opportunity “persuader” of the young and, ahem, not so young.
