Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.
Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.
What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?
I received this book from the author but purchased the audio book.
Ok since I am reviewing the audio book I gotta say….HEEEY Rhenn’s narrator. Holy Sweet Baby Jesus that voice. Imma tell ya, you will be thanking me for that right off the bat. I don’t want to know what the narrator really looks like because my mind has his picture juuuuuust right. LOL Now I see he does the voice for the other 2 books…….YES is all I can say.
So this is my first Lacey book….yeah yeah I know late to the party like always but ya know what can I say. I have only known her 5 years *Face Palm*
I gotta say I loved the dynamic of quiet and shy but sassy Marissa with Rhenn. Rhenn is all playa playa who falls for the women who embodies his exact opposite type…ya know, she isn’t an easy whore. LOL
Marissa is devastated by her family’s business/home fire and is lost because what will they do. When her long lost family enters the picture, she gets connected to Rhenn who will be doing the family a favor and wiring the house for them.
When Rhenn shows up, he is stunned stupid at the beautiful women he sees but knows she isn’t “his type” and a quick roll won’t be something she is interested in. When, after getting to know him, she proposes Friends with Benefits while he is in town….he flips out.
I loved seeing them fall but fear telling the other. They both want more but she fears she isn’t good enough and he is ashamed of his past. When the two weeks is up and they part, I was a little bit weepy and wanted to kick Rhenn in the balls.
The end of the story is perfect and totally swoon worthy.
I gotta say Emma and Orville KILLED ME in this story. Marissa’s long-lost aunt and uncle were to inappropriately funny in this book. I can’t wait for more of them in the rest of the books. I am kinda giving brother Samuel a look over because I just know the right women or even man could make that anal-retentive ass crumble. But first up is sexy diva Harper. I can’t wait to see who tames this wild child!!
Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.
