He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marceline with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn't sound like a bad idea... and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and über-hot bod of her best friend's older brother.
After years of waiting in painful silence, cop Aaron Robinson finally has Marceline’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marceline he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness…

My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was a quick but great book. I loved that both Aaron and Marcy/Marceline have secretly been in love with each other for years. I really liked that when Aaron saw his chance, he jumped in with both feet and took it - even if he did have to run off another guy to do it. Marcy isn't quite sure what Aaron's intentions are, all she knows is she needs to keep her life stable for her daughter. Aaron, now that he's taken a step towards Marcy, knows that he wants to keep her in his life. He always has. Marcy wants Aaron, she's just afraid to let him in because it won't be just her that gets hurt. I can say, I loved the way this ended! So heart-warming and awesome. Katee did a fantastic job with this. I loved the characters, and the story line was good and moved along at a nice clip.
Author Bio: Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
