Kelly resides in a quiet suburb somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. Her day job? Kelly works in health care representing a group of nursing facilities in the WNY area. She’s been faithfully writing for three years but did write her first book ten years ago. She put it down to raise her son as a single mom and then picked it back up when she and her son finally grew up. That's when she settled into her newly married adult life and started to seriously write again. She's dabbled with Romantic Suspense stories, but recently she's been on a contemporary kick. The recipe for the men in her stories: a dash of bad boy attitude, a cup of strong and confident and, of course, besides being packed with magnificent bodies, and doused with shameless aptitudes, they must have a tender heart you want to rip out of the pages (or your e-Reader) and take to bed with you at night.
“I-I can’t believe you just walked out here butt-ass naked.”
“Why?” His eyelids lift. “What do I have to be ashamed of?”
“Uh…” Does he really want me to answer that?
“Besides,” he says, the side of his mouth turning up, “it ain’t like you haven’t been imaging what I look like butt-ass naked.”
“In your dreams,” I hiss. Powerless, I steal another glimpse of the muscles rippling down his arms, his flat stomach, and his strong legs. Hot damn, he’s perfect.
“Precisely where I’ve been, huh?”
“Yeah, right.” I stand up from the bed, my strength weakening.
“That’s not what you were mumbling in my ear last night,” he says, readjusting the towel around his sculptured waist.
“Hey, I was perfectly fine on the floor. You didn’t have to pick me up and put me in bed with you.”
“Just as I thought.” He shakes his head and takes a few steps toward me.
“What’s that?” I turn a bit to the left to move away from the unsafe bed.
“You were awake when I did that, and you still had no fight in ya to stop me. Admit it. You wanted to sleep with me. Those sexy legs of yours wanted nothing more than to wrap themselves around my body, and as for your hands…” His eyebrow curves. “Are you gonna deny where they were wandering to—”
“Now I know you’re full of shit! My hands didn’t wander anywhere.”
“No, but mine did, and there was no fight in ya to stop me then either.”
“Ew!” I don’t remember sleeping with him. But, hell, if I’d been awake, my frisky hands would’ve been all over him. “Fuck off,” I lurch, utterly frustrated.
“Now let’s not start throwing that word around, ‘cause standing here in nothing but a towel with you wanting what you want…” he says, shaking his head. “Well, I can’t promise that boyfriend of yours will be too happy to hear about you, me, and the eff word all summed up into one.”
“Yes, I know.” He waves me off. “I’m an arrogant ass, but hey, I get it. You want me, but you belong to someone else.” He shrugs and grins. “It happens.”
My hands ball into tight fists at my sides. “I belong to no one!”
“You do, Sloan, whether you want to admit it or not. You’re his.” He presses closer, and my back hits the wall. “And be thankful for it.” He lifts his hands and places them on the wall, trapping me. “See, the fact is…” His eyes roll down my body, then slowly saunter back up, “That’s the only thing stopping me from stripping your clothes off, slamming you against this wall, and fucking you hard.” He leans in, and my entire being shakes from the inside out. “It’s all that’s stopping me from making every bone in your body ache for me, and every muscle ache because of me. And let me tell ya, by the time I got through with you…” He pauses again, his lips slightly parted, his head tilting closer. “You’d certainly belong to someone, because I’d make you completely mine.”
My Review: 5 stars
This was certainly a ride to enjoy! I loved that Sloan got one over on J.T. Of course, that more than likely wouldn't have happened if Jack would have said something about Max being a twin, Made me laugh my ass off when J.T. took her to Jack. Assumptions are a bitch, huh? The best thing about the trip was that Sloan and J.T. got to know each other and fight the attraction between them. After J.T. found our she really wasn't Max, all bets were off. Especially after Max asked him to keep an eye out for her because of something else that had happened a few months before. There were exciting moments, tender and passionate moments, and hot and sexy moments - I loved them all. Kelly has made a fan of me since the first book in this series. They can all be read as stand alones, which is pretty cool. There is some character overlap, but not enough to mess with the story line of each individual book. Yet another book I couldn't put down once I started it.
