“While we’re together, I want your body to be as much mine as it is yours."
Marcus Sullivan is my kind of hero. He is thirty-six years old, the oldest of seven siblings, who at fourteen stepped up to help his mom take care of his younger siblings. I love how responsible he is and how much he loves his family. Marcus has always known the kind of future he wanted but when the woman he thought was perfect for him turned out to be a liar and cheat he decides one night of meaningless pleasure is just what he needed. But what he finds instead is anything but meaningless and once-off.
He didn’t know how she was doing it, how she was managing to get in under his skin, his bones, all the way down to a heart that knew better.
Nicola Harding might be young at only twenty-five, but being a popstar has taught her just how fake people could be. After being betrayed by a man she thought she could trust but who only used her fame, she promised herself that she wouldn’t be so gullible ever again. The world believes the sex-kitten image she has as Nico, but nothing could be further from the truth. Wanting one night of escaping her loneliness and hoping to find it in a nightclub everyone has been raving about, she finds the perfect distraction in a gorgeous stranger who doesn’t realise who she is. Wanting to explore the hunger between them, she agrees to one night, but nothing goes as planned. I loved Nicola and how normal, down-to-earth she was despite her fame. I also loved how brave she was, how despite her shyness around Marcus and how afraid she was of getting hurt again, she still wanted to explore the connection between them, even when he tried to push her away.
So what if he didn’t fit into her world and she didn’t fit into his?
How could he give her up?
I love the sparks between them, these two who seemed so different, worlds-apart, but deep down they wanted the same things. What was supposed to be one night only became so much more than they anticipated, the chemistry between them scorching and the feelings growing between them making it impossible to stay away. The sexy times were SO hot, especially with Marcus’ dominant streak in the bedroom and I loved seeing these two fall in love, especially since both thought they were wrong for each other. Nicole was the brave one in their romance, giving herself to Marcus even when he was pushing her away. But luckily when she decided she was tired of risking herself and giving up on him, he decided to get his head out of his ass and he fought for her and it was fantastic.
I love romances set in big families and the Sullivan family is probably one of my favorites. I loved all the siblings and their sweet mother and I can’t wait to read the rest.
A sweet, emotional and very sexy romance. Highly recommended.
