Shane, Shane, Shane...Oh my gosh, where do I start?
The fabulous Taryn Elliott kept me up until 2am my time reading this terrific story. Goodness, she's always got me with every single one of her heroes. Now, that she's introduced me to Shane, I'm having a hard time deciding which of her bad boys is my favorite. Then again, I decided to make it easy on myself and let all her men be my favorite. There. Problem solved.
Shane is yet another sexy bad boy who's not happy with the card life has just dealt him. Finding out the man he's always known as his dad had a daughter he never spoke about is shocking. As if that weren't enough, the unknown daughter is the carefree beauty who holds the key to his future. He's not a happy camper.
Kendall thinks that at the passing of her dad, maybe, just maybe he thought of her. Her high hopes dissolve the moment she crosses paths with Shane and when she learns her beloved father played one last joke...err, card on her and her mom. She's never understood why her dad left her and her mom. Now she doesn't know if to be confused or hurt even as finding out out her dad raised the gorgeous man standing in front of her as his own son is not easy to accept.
The sexual tension is too much for them to take that it's easier to let desire drive their actions. The problem is, once that's out of the way they want to go back for more. It's a battle of wills that slowly but surely turns from mistrust into trust, more steam, new feelings neither had ever had, and love.
Sigh. I'm willing to go on a cross country trip with Shane any time.
I've read all of Taryn's stories and all I can say is I've liked them all. Taryn keeps raising the bar with every new story she releases and I can't wait to see what else she's got up her sleeve.
Psst...rumor has it she's busy working on her next story and the heroes are just as drool-worthy. Blurb:
Shane Justice always does what's expected of him. Playing it safe has left him with nothing to show for it but an empty bank account and half ownership in a bed and breakfast over three thousand miles away from home. To make matters worse, his joint partner is exasperating, sexy, and drives him to the brink of insanity. He can't stop thinking about her, wanting her, or touching her. Kendall's not part of the plan, and he always has a plan.
Kendall Proctor has spent her life taking care of people. It's all she knows. A legal technicality changes her life, bringing a stranger into the middle of her business and straight to her doorstep. A passion-fueled moment forever changes their relationship adding sex and an unquenchable thirst for more into the equation. Shane and his grouchy but steady ways make her dare to believe that she could count on someone for the first time in her life.
A cross country trip, forced proximity, and a passion that defies all sense and logic is only the beginning of their story.
