My life was boring until I met him.
Painfully tedious, pathetically lonely, and I absolutely hated it.
But I was too scared to do anything about it. Too scared to change . . . at least until I met Kace.
I should have been terrified of him—scared of his size (he towered over my short, curvy self), freaked out by the fierce tats covering his arms and torso (they even crawled up his neck), and definitely frightened by the angry scowl he unleashed on anyone who dared to disrupt him (though this happened rarely, it still did happen).
Except, Kace seemed to like me—shy, boring, socially inept me. He couldn’t change the tats or the towering, but he rarely unleashed his trademark scowl on me.
Okay, so maybe it was more like he tolerated me, but regardless, Kace didn’t seem to care that I hung around the bar he worked at, putting my night owl tendencies to work as I wrote.
See, my work was the only place I explored. My safe place to write as dirty and steamy and kinky of books as I wanted.
My readers loved them—loved the hot sex, the tough alphas, the guaranteed happy endings. As thus, I made good money, only somewhat because I was a decent writer, but mostly because my imagination was very active, beyond active . . . some might even say too active.
As for me personally? I’d never experienced anything close to the types of things I wrote.
But I’d decided it was time to change that.
With scowly, sexy, terrifying Kace.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
I loved Brooke! Insecure, kind of nerdy and a romance writer, she’s spent every night of the last six months at the neighborhood bar, where sexy bartender Kace inspires her to write sexy, tatted heroes.
Their conversations are always superficial, but Kace has been cataloging everything he can about Brooke. When Kace sees what is on her laptop one day and makes the connection to him, he makes his move… and refuses to back down until he makes Brooke his.
This was such a feel-good story, and I read it in a single sitting, a little more than an hour. Kace and Brooke both have hurt in their pasts, and their broken souls find each other in a lovely way. She always feels like she’s not good enough to be with a hunk like him, and he can’t believe that someone so good and pure cares enough for him to do a simple thing like bake banana bread. All the feels!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
