4 1/2 Stars! ~ Michael “Spike” Moriarty is a six foot four, tattooed bad boy. He has a dark past that he has confessed to few; that eats him up inside and makes him feel unworthy of love. Having the career of his dreams as partner and chef at a B&B in the Adirondacks is the best he expects for himself. The career and having his sister Jaynie stay with him where he can keep her safe, is all that he needs. That is until he meets Madeline “Mad” Maguire, the six foot Amazon who used to crew with a good friend on their America’s Cup yacht. Mad’s worked very hard and has earned herself tremendous respect among her crew; she’s a helmsman who could crew on any yacht she chose. At 25 she’s surrounded by men but has never had a relationship with one. There’s something about Spike that makes her want to change all that. He’s got an aura of danger but she senses that deep inside he’s a man a woman can count on. The challenge would be to convince him that she was okay with the fact that he didn’t do long term, she was ready to live just for the now.

I fell in love with these characters right from the beginning. This is another awesome book; one that I couldn’t put down. Mad loves the look of hunger in Spike’s eyes when he watches her and this makes her hungry in return. It’s all the past insecurities that keep coming between them, and some misunderstandings from conclusions jumped into. It was fun watching Spike go crazy shy and Mad become a seductress. Well done!
