“Yes. About that…”I was supposed to find a finely dressed businessman, have a one-night stand and forget about my failed relationship. Instead, I meet Tanner Sexton—a gorgeous man in street clothes, messy hair and the sexiest smile I’ve ever seen.
When my ex shows up at the bar, Tanner notices my panic and kisses me just so the prick can see. Then he takes off, leaving me breathless.
So, I do what any rational person would. I chase after him onto the subway, and embark on a wild night in New York City with a complete stranger.
No matter how much I fight it, this mysterious artist painted his soul onto my skin, and I haven’t been able to forget him. Our romance is one for the ages, but age isn’t the only thing standing in our way.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Sweet, sexy Tanner! Lauren Runow and Jeannine Colette topped themselves with this Sexton brother!
Tanner and Harper’s story is full of sexy fun, but also has a lot of sweet moments. I especially liked how torn Tanner was throughout the book about wanting to be the no-name artist that the sweet schoolteacher knew him as versus the heir to a media empire that had massive responsibility hanging over his head.
While each of the Sexton brothers found their perfect mate, I really liked that there was an age difference between Tanner and Harper. He’s the youngest brother, just 22 and about to finish up college. She’s 30, has had a few heartbreaks and is settled in her career. But they both throw caution to the wind and their age gap works wonderfully.
This is a series of standalones, but there is a somewhat interconnected story dealing the Sexton Media empire. The books can be read in any order, since they seem to take place at the same time. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
