Hailey: He owns the coffee shop, so I need to stop fantasizing that he comes here to see me. In fact, he’s never spoken to me other than to order his coffee. I just can’t get over the way he sits in the corner of the shop a couple times a week slowly sipping his hot, black coffee and staring at me with intent. Why? I don’t know. I should be concerned that he’s like a lion stalking his prey, but all I can think of is stalk me, please.
James: I watch her every chance I get. When the time’s right, she will be mine. With every smile she tosses at a male customer, the angrier I get. Buying the shop, installing extra cameras, and visiting twice a week does nothing to calm the need to claim her for my own. She’s going to think I’m crazy, but really, I’m determined.
I purchased this book from Amazon.
I hate when books say “If you like 50 Shades….” Buuuut this book reminded me of Bossy Christian. No there isn’t any BDSM but the controlling and possessive, demamding Christian behavior is totally James.
James is legit a stalker who is obsessed with Hailey, his coffee shop employee. She is oblivious to what he feels towards her, but she is totally infatuated by him too.
When James can’t take it anymore, he scoops in and rescues Hailey. He offers her a new job not knowing that he has a lot more in store for her then just switching jobs.
I liked the story of the older, experienced man who takes over and does everything he can to capture the woman he is head over heels for. Hailey is innocent but also feisty which was a fun read.
The story has some steam and makes for a great quick read for an afternoon.
C.M. Steele lives for writing what she likes to read. With over 60+ short stories and a couple actual novels, she is only just beginning. She is most definitely not for everyone, but she does love her readers. Working on improving her craft is a monumental task because she has the attention span of a gnat and the patience of a race car driver in Walmart (Absolutely none.)
