They say Rafe Hunter is trouble with a capital T.
I say--bring it on.
As long as Trouble comes in a package as delicious as Rafe's, I'm ready to climb on his Harley and ride all night long--and I'm not just talking about his motorcycle.
I can hide out until the scandal with my evil ex blows over AND have a wild rebound at the same time. Besides, I've got no heart left to break. My ex made sure of that.
As long as Rafe and I keep our no-strings fling from our families, what can possibly go wrong?
This is so damned wrong.
I don't do drama, and this thing with Carrie Haverford has Bad News written all over it. After one red-hot kiss, I know I should cut and run.
Instead I take her home, take her in her car, take her to the beach and make her scream louder than the crashing waves. And then I take her so far into my heart I don't see how I'm ever going to let her go.
The say the bigger and badder they are, the harder they fall. But when I fall for a girl with third degree love burns, how can I convince her that fire is a good thing?
This sexy Standalone romance will make you laugh, melt, and fall madly in love.
Sometimes secret relationships, and blanket forts, are a cover for what you really want, and sometimes it requires being willing to take the leap into the slightly forbidden, and the courage to believe in yourself, to make it happen, to trust that what you want IS right, even if your life, and your current circumstances are telling you that you don't always make the best decisions.
Rafe and Carrie are the forbidden couple as they are related...by marriage. But, with a mom who judges and a naked photo scandal, and a man who rarely commits to anything but a string of first dates, getting involved is a bad idea. Related by marriage or not.
Unless, of course, you get involved in a blanket fort cone of silence and don't tell anyone.
Because, you know, that always works and things like this always stay hidden and no one ever finds out.
But, the real fun of this book is when they each realize that maybe, just maybe, the cone of silence isn't something that they want, that just maybe there is more to this beginning of a relationship than either of them wanted to admit. It's that moment where you realize that you have what you wanted, what you were afraid to want, and what you gave yourself under the cover of something else, so you were not obligated to admit it in the light of day.
This book is funny, it's light in places. But it is also serious when it needs to be, and you genuinely start to like both Rafe and Carrie, and you want them to work out because, well, they are absolutely perfect for one another. The writing is strong, and it maintains the balance of the light, and the funny, with the more serious aspects of the story, without making the humor seem out of place, which can be a tough thing to balance.
I liked the pacing of the story, I believed the build up of the sexual attraction, and I really liked the way Rafe was aware of Carrie as a person, and aware enough of Carrie's feelings enough to know that something wasn't the best idea. This scene, without spoilers, was not a huge deal, but it the reader a glimpse into who Rafe is, and it let you really believe his interest in Carrie was genuine, before he even admitted it to himself.
I enjoyed this book, and I recommend it.
