The person is filled with it as well, but it hides behind a shy demeanor. Sunny is nervous to go to the latest book event she is signed up for, she would rather stay home.
When Geo shows up to pick her up, she is thrown off. The stunning man has made it known he wants her and he is playing for keeps. Sunny has too much on her plate to believe it's true, but a part of her wishes it is.
Started off great but it was so rushed, especially at the end. I wish it had a bit more with the two characters and breaking Sunny out of her shelf. It dabbles but not fully to comprehend why she is the way she is. Good story, just needed it to be longer....more

LittWith little choice left, out of work Simone Angel stumbles across a job as a live in cook and housekeeper on a ranch with three bachelor cowboys. Little did she know after accepting the job that the Triple R Ranch housed three of the handsomest men she will ever meet, Samson, Connor, and Griffith. Fighting her attraction is one thing but when she realizes they want more from her than just work, she needs to decide if she is going to follow her heart or retreat.
I had read this before under Becky Wilde. Overall I liked the concept of the story but there were a couple of things that had me scratching my head. The three men in the story are vocal but not necessarily about their feelings toward Simone in the beginning and she is left to let her mind wander and second guess her feelings as well as theirs. I will read more in series for sure as the story had its moments where you were completely pulled in....more

Chloe believes that she can keep it just sex with Flynn and Noah, but she is sadly mistaken.

There were aspects of this one I liked a lot, however the constant reference to Chloe as sub bothered me, it was almost in a negative context. Overall though I liked this one a lot. Noah is the less intense, until he becomes pure dom. Flynn is very intense almost broody, but he is carrying guilt from his past. The story definitely has set the tone for the next book, will definitely check it out. ...more
