Once the time has passed though, Duke moves in and Gen falls hard for Duke however it is not a smooth ride as tempers flare, danger lurks, and Duke reveals a secret about him being a werewolf.
This was a fascinating book. I was completely entranced from the very beginning. Duke is pure alpha and Gen struggles to find her way with him at times. Gen has a long history of being with cheaters and her fear that Duke would do the same is holding her back from fully embracing her love her him. Unexpected and a complete delight....more
Billionaire Travis Harrison is surly, straight to the point, and a thorn in his secretaries side. Over four very long years with her boss, Ally CaldweBillionaire Travis Harrison is surly, straight to the point, and a thorn in his secretaries side. Over four very long years with her boss, Ally Caldwell has been fired more times to count but she always shrugs it off. She does her job, doesn't take his flack and then heads to her second job to help build her future with her fiancee. She never saw it coming, her so called fiancee who let her do all the work was a cheat and now that they have split, Ally can only take so much from her boss and lets him have it.
Travis didn't realize that Ally's life had imploded, but once he does he sees an opening. He has wanted Ally underneath him for four long years and now she is seeing the attentive, compassionate, and straight to the point side of him. While she is not sure she wants to cross the boss/employee side, Travis is hell bent to have her he just never expected to fall in love along the way.
Very entertaining. The chemistry is off the charts and Travis has a very demanding tone to him that Ally rebuffs causing Travis to push harder. Travis is also very oblivious to boundaries where Ally is concerned, he sees it as taking care of her, she sees it as overstepping. Smiled throughout the story....more
Charlie Sykes is what others would call an odd duck, to her it logically doesn't make sense as she has no feathers. Charlie takes everything literallyCharlie Sykes is what others would call an odd duck, to her it logically doesn't make sense as she has no feathers. Charlie takes everything literally, she analyzes and spends a lot of time in her head making a well thought out decision. When she is hired by hotelier Jace Knight, she is well aware of his reputation with his employees. As Charlie does with every aspect of her life, she lays it out why she is certain they would not work well together. For the first time in his life Jace is completely intrigued by a woman and the more he gets to know her the more bewitched he is.
However not everything is going as it seems, Charlie finds herself involved in a game of deception. Jace is asking for her trust, but Charlie is torn in several directions and is struggling to do what is right.
Holy moly this was an intense and very seductive read. You are pulled in by Charlie immediately, at first I was not certain I would like the story as it is very descriptive in the beginning with Charlie's thoughts but it works. She can make you feel awkward in her thoughts and has a few cringe worthy moments, but you love her as a character. Jace is a hard but fascinating character. High praise can't wait to read more from this author....more
Gabrielle Carpino should be reveling in the praise of her newly finished project she did for her best friends laundry room, instead she is frisked, cuGabrielle Carpino should be reveling in the praise of her newly finished project she did for her best friends laundry room, instead she is frisked, cuffed, and mildly attracted to the man wearing the FBI vest.
Agent Jude Ortiz doesn't quite know what to make about the sassy minx who has captured his interest. He knows she had no idea of the illegal activities surrounding her. When Jude finds out that Gabrielle could be the next target, he is by her side and he likes it. In fact he has decided to keep her as his, but Gabrielle has a way of communicating in a very round about way and Jude has to learn to navigate through the waters so she can clearly understand where they are headed.
Loved it. So far my favorite in the Carpino series. Garbrielle is a spitfire, she is full of energy and sass and Jude is more the observer and man of action. They perfectly compliment one another. Looking forward to more... ...more

Sadie didn't have a lot of experience with men, but she knew a player when she saw one. When Ethan approaches her, Sadie is not wanting to be anotherSadie didn't have a lot of experience with men, but she knew a player when she saw one. When Ethan approaches her, Sadie is not wanting to be another notch but for some reason Ethan wants to take time to get to know one another. Sadie is falling fast but is having a problem trusting the newly changed Ethan, when she finds out who he truly was will she want anything to do with him.
So this was a so-so for me. I grappled with Ethan, he is a possessive jerk and while I love me a strong alpha man, he was a complete jerk about it and it surfaced a lot. It almost seemed like he didn't trust her. I also had a problem with virgin Sadie who is all shy and timid but turns into like a vamp instantly. Had a good base but it just fell a little short for me. That being said I may try it again and have a completely different perspective on it....more
