I have been spending so much more time on my sale and new release lists, updating them daily instead of twice a week, that I sadly haven’t been reading as much, and also don’t have as many hours to review. So this month I only had 10 reviews. If you notice, I also have a lot more audiobooks each month. That’s because I listen to them while working on my lists which is probably 20-30 hours a week. If you aren’t an audiobook reader, my reviews are the same as they would be for the book, with an additional comment and rating about the narration. It’s rare that I can’t separate the two.
December will probably be light on reviews too. I am actually going to listen to old favorites (I am listening to Rock Chick Renegade by Kristen Ashley as I do this list, and I freaking LOVE it just as much as when I read it the first time. If you have never read Kristen Ashley or listened to an audiobook, this is a great series to start both with. See my Guide to Kristen Ashley here). That way I won’t get so behind on reviews this month and have a chance to have more gift guides, book lists, and my annual 8 nights of Chrismukkah Giveaway. Plus of course, spend time with my family and decorate for the holidays.
Below is a recap of my 10 November reviews, as well as the top 20 bestselling books based on your clicks on Ana’s Attic Amazon links last month.
“That’s ours, Wild. What we have, how we build on it, and I don’t give a fuck if it makes sense or not. It was fast but I don’t care. People might not get it like we do but again” — he dipped closer — “I do not fuckin’ care. What I do care about is you.”
I absolutely loved Four Letter Word by J. Daniels. While I don’t like to compare to other authors, J. Daniels gave me the feel of my favorite author, Kristen Ashley, but it never felt like she was copying. I loved the way the couple got to know each other before ever seeing each other. The mixture of fun banter, damaged hero, lovable heroine, good friends, secrets, healing, hot sex and believable love made Four Letter Word stand out as a favorite. The narration was amazing, and I think listening rather than reading may have even enhanced the book. I loved all the characters, and I so look forward to the next in the series, Hit The Spot.
Instead of one of my brothers, though, an angel walked in.
A wet, bedraggled, hung over, pissed off angel in a sopping wet wedding dress. But sweet mother of goddamn, she was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen.
Badd Motherf*cker by Jasinda Wilder isn’t the most unique storyline I have read, but Jasinda was able to make it feel new, fresh and fun. We met all 8 of the absolutely gorgeous Badd brothers and I look forward to getting each of their stories. I loved the fun and flirty banter, and I loved the interactions between the brothers. Badd Motherf*cker was a fun, super sexy, light and easy read that doesn’t try to be anything else. I will be picking up more in this series.
“For the love of broken beavers, do you two ever take a break? Seriously. Is your vagina lined with leather? I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if one day your vagina fell right off.”
If you are a fan of the Pucked Series, I promise you, Pucked Under will not disappoint. We visit with all three couples and touch on the two soon-to-be couples. There was lots of fun, a ton of sex, and lots of friendship, but Pucked Under had a little more emotion than some of the previous ones. Since this is the first audiobook I’ve done in the series, I think that is where I lost a little of the love. They just aren’t anywhere near as funny via audio as they were in my head. But I love Lily and Randy, and I was thrilled to dig even deeper into their relationship. I can’t wait for more in the series!
The way I see it, sometimes things happen in life and love’s put on hold. But if someone’s your soul mate, nothing is going to stop you from being together in the end.
K Bromberg took two popular tropes, a second chance romance (first love), and a Hollywood/regular girl romance and made it unique, fresh, fun and sexy. I loved all of the characters and Ryder absolutely needs his own book! Sweet Cheeks is the perfect example of why I love to read. This book made me HAPPY. It made me feel good. It had me smiling throughout. It was swoony and sexy, fun and flirty, angsty and amazing and still filled with emotion. Add to that the amazing narration, and you have a total winner!
Every kiss between them was fireworks and rocket launchers. God, he felt incredible. Hot, muscled, persuasive, determined. He kissed like a god. With one seductive whisper, he could distract her utterly. One touch, and she felt her defenses crumbling. But those lips could capture her soul. Yes, she loved Hammer, but…Liam set her on fire.
One Dom To Love has amazing ratings, but for me it was just OK. The beginning was slow, and the whole book felt a bit old fashioned. I didn’t expect it to be a love triangle, but rather a menage. I also expected a bit more BDSM and there really wasn’t much. It also didn’t really end with this book, there is a mild cliffy. I rarely put aside a book but in this case I took a break and listened to another book and came back to it, which just shows you I wasn’t totally hooked. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, but never fell near the ‘love it’ rating.
“Relax, Wes. I’m in love with your fucking tongue. Now stick it in me so I can return the favor.”
I can see how The Calendar Girl series can be addictive. The writing is compelling and Mia is very likable. The sex is hot, and I guess having 12 partners will keep things interesting. I love that there isn’t a cliffy, each book has it’s own story arc, but you don’t get an HEA for the couple which even though I knew going in, but I still felt sad about it. But if you are looking for a hot and sexy series that you can gobble up like candy and price is no object, this may be one to choose. For me, the time commitment and the price are holding me back from continuing. I will not judge the book by its price for the star rating though, that is purely story.
“He pulled his mouth away and stared into my eyes as we fucked. It’s never been like this. It was beautiful and savage—it was filthy and precious.”
Raine Miller knows how to write a classy, swoony, truly romantic romance with well fleshed out characters, a little humor and some hot sex. Filthy Rich was very low in angst, so it was a fairly light and easy read. But because of this, after loving the first third, I felt like the middle moved slow, and I found myself taking an unheard of week to read it, partially because of personal reasons, and partly because I just wasn’t desperate to find out what happens next, because there wasn’t much happening besides the couple falling deeper in love. Luckily it picked back up at the end, and I still loved the story. Raine did an excellent job of setting up some future books in the series, and you can bet I am grabbing the next. If you like an easy, swoony, classic and classy romance that is light on the angst and high in the fairytale feel, Filthy Rich is for you.
“Don’t call me fudge nuggets.”
“What do you prefer? Love handles?”
“No.” Her scowl deepens.
“Sausage snuggler? Kissy kibbles? Juicy cakes? Licky lovestick?” Irritation is boiling out of her now. “Are you deranged? What makes you think I want to be referred to as sausage snuggler or licky lovestick?”
“Does that mean you like kissy kibbles and juicy cakes?”
I am absolutely in love with Stroked Hard. I think some people may not have loved the heroine, she was a bit prickly while she pushed him away, but I think that’s what made Hollis so amazing, Melony’s resistance is what made him shine. His sweetness, his lack of giving up on her, and his ability to make her lighten up and laugh no matter what, are what made him so special. If she didn’t resist, he wouldn’t have shown his amazing persuasive ways. I love when a book can be totally silly in a sweet way, but never be stupid. The banter was amazing, and the nicknames sealed the deal on another 2016 favorite for me from Meghan Quinn. I hope she comes out with audiobooks, because I would love to listen to this series now!
“My answer to that is, by the end of our time here, you may not submit in your heart, but you’ll understand what it means. And you’ll understand me.”
Marriage Games was a completely addictive story that you truly feel as you are reading it. It is different from any other BDSM book I have read, so don’t lump it in and say “not another BDSM book!” Thought provoking and compelling, this very sexy story will have you examining yourself, your relationship and your feelings as you identify with both of them. While I usually hate cliffhangers, I found this is more of a turn the story needed to take, and a pause is needed. The cliffy just works. Though I didn’t totally fall for the characters the way I like to, I fell for the story, and the way the story unfolded. As far as the audio goes, this was the best narration I have experienced. With my two favorite narrators acting it out like a play instead of reading “he said, she said”. This style is ruining me for other audiobooks.
I absolutely cannot wait for Separation Games in January.
“Before this is over, Leah, I’m going to make damn sure you see yourself the way I see you”
Leah was one of the most relatable heroines ever. She is plus-sized and miserable in her own skin, always putting herself down because her mom and ex gave her a complex. Sam was sweet and sexy despite putting his foot in his mouth and hurting her a few too many times. I laughed out loud a lot during Size Matters, and loved the banter and snarky fun. I was rooting and cheering for this couple to get over themselves and get together and I had a blast the whole time. If this was written in first person, it would have been 5 stars for me, but you can bet I will pick up Valerie’s book, because I expect that will be crazy funny without the self-loathing that may turn some of you off.

25 Authors, Awkward Sex, Epic Cause
Holidays conjure up many thoughts – long, chilly nights snuggled up by the fire, bare feet tucked under the one you love. Some are hallmarks of summer when your skin is warmed by more than the sun. There is the after-Thanksgiving dinner nightcap, and the feel of the smooth, sultry burn of whiskey warming your chest, rendering your limbs heavy. Or lazy kisses and wandering hands beneath your best dress on a romantic Valentine’s Day date.
But sometimes, Grandma gets boozed up and passes out at the table, your brother gets caught rubbing one out under the fireworks, your kids catch mommy kissing Santa (and not on the lips), your special new toy winds up in the wrong gift bag, a goat steals and wears your sexy new thong and watching the ball drop takes on a whole new meaning.
In other words, the holidays can be magical, but sometimes, they’re also just f*cking awkward.
Special Foreword written by USA Today Bestselling Author, Tara Sivec’s dog, Fat Ralph.
I loved the first one, and I’m in the middle of this and love it.

Just like I’d once passed on his.
He’s wary, like I am.
He’s broken, like I am.
And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.
Tahoe and I are strictly friends.
So I distract myself with other men.
He doesn’t think my new man is good enough. This blond blue-eyed beast doesn’t think any man is—himself included.

For a VERY limited time, grab all three Rixton Falls books in one sale-priced boxed set! Included are ROYAL, BACHELOR, and FILTHY. This boxed set is being released to celebrate the launch of PRICELESS, which is an Amato Brothers/Rixton Falls crossover!
***All books are standalones with interconnected characters. They can be read in any order.***
His name is Royal, but he’s no prince charming. He’s not even a prince – though you could say I loved him once upon a time.
He was my older brother’s best friend.
Growing up, he sat at our dinner table every Sunday, teased me mercilessly, and pretended I annoyed him.
When I was old enough, he took me on my first date.
Royal taught me how to drive. Escorted me to my junior prom. Gave me my first kiss…amongst other things. He was my first taste of toe-curling, all-consuming, can’t-sleep love.
We had our whole lives ahead of us. There was never anyone else for me but him.
And then he disappeared. No letter. No explanation. Not even a goodbye.
My sisters and brother never forgave him, and my parents forbade me from speaking his name in our house ever again. For all intents and purposes, we were to pretend Royal Lockhart never existed.
I’ve spent the last seven years trying in vain to forget my first love, but just when I think I’ve finally moved on, guess who’s back in town?
Derek Rosewood is never going to marry.
Fresh off the heels of a bitter divorce, there are only three things he gives a sh*t about: his daughter, his career, and his bachelorhood.
An attorney by trade and happily married to his job, he saves the drama for the courtroom and keeps women at an arm’s length. Their fragile, sequined hearts are safer that way. And besides, he’s not in any condition to offer them the love and attention they so foolishly seek from him.
Believe him, he’s not what they need. Not after what he’s been through.
It’s not until he’s assigned as the financial conservatorship for an aloof, enigmatic heiress that he finds his professional – and personal – boundaries pushed to the wayside. They’re all wrong for each other. Emotionally unavailable. Bitter. Jaded. And he’s supposed to look out for her best interests. Protect her.
But *this* wasn’t supposed to happen. And for that reason, Derek Rosewood pleads the fifth.
Filthy mouth. Dirty mind. Messy past. I’m no saint, and I hear my reputation precedes me, but you can’t believe everything people say.
I’ve made a living playing by the rules only when the clock is ticking, the ball has been snapped, and I’m cleat-deep in AstroTurf. But I screwed up last year. I went too far with the girls and the partying and the benders, and I created a PR sh*t storm for my team in the process. As a result, the team owner sentenced me to live in some gated, Floridian retirement village until I can “calm down.”
Football is my life, and I love my team. They’re the only family I’ve got anymore, so I’ll do what I have to do to stay where I am.
The rules are clear: no girls, less booze, zero publicity stunts. If I lay low and repair my reputation, I won’t get cut. It’s that simple. Everything was going well. For the first time in my life, I was living by someone else’s rules . . .
. . . and then *she* showed up for the summer.
My next door neighbor’s great niece is visiting, and it doesn’t take long for me to see Delilah Rosewood is the perfect mix of sexy and smart. She makes me want to break all the rules and draw every penalty just to get a taste. She’s all curves and opinions and bee-stung lips, and I’m all trying-to-do-everything-I-can-to-convince-her-to-give-me-the-time-of-day.
But there’s one problem: she hates me with the passion of a thousand Florida suns.
7. Stroked Hard by Meghan Quinn
He’s hot. Like, stop breathing kind of hot with his killer body, vivid blue eyes, and constant five o’clock shadow.
Did I mention his body?
Watching Hollis Knightly, Olympic diving gold medalist, man-pony specialist—and cocky bastard—stand up on the diving platform in nothing but a small piece of Spandex? Yeah, I’m beguiled.
And easily seduced.
I want to keep things light but he won’t leave me alone. And hell, if he’s not wearing me thin.
What is supposed to be a simple summer fling with a very hot man, has now morphed into a f*cked-up mess of feelings, attachment, and dare I say it…love. But I don’t do relationships. And Hollis Knightly does.

She needs to get knocked up.
He has ten very hard inches to do the job with.

My panty-melting-hot, best buddy, White.
My football player, never-going-to-settle-down best friend.
He’s telling me he won’t let anyone else near me.
He’s out to prove he’s the only man for the job.
I should say no. The idea is crazy, right?
Except the things he does to my body leaves me begging for more.
My crazy best friend wants a baby.
Like hell I’m going to let her get knocked up by anyone but me.
Having a baby with my best friend is the last thing I ever thought I’d want.
But one taste of those sweet lips and I can’t think about wanting anything else.
She’s not sure I can commit.
But I’ll convince her I have exactly the tool she needs… even if her and I have to break a few beds to prove it.
She wants a baby? I want her everything.
And I’m going to be there every step of the way… with a raging heart on.

**Warning: This book is a wild, sexy beast of a read. 18+**
Savage man, loner, warrior… I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation.

He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?
As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.

The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.
11. Wrong by Jana Aston
I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma’s boy? Check, check and check.
Now I can’t stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It’s just a harmless crush, right? It’s not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It’s not like I’m going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he’s the doctor. Shoot. Me.
But what if, for once, the man I’ve had the dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies about turned out to be everything but wrong?

11 (tie) Caught Together by Penny Wylder
He’s hot enough that I could melt chocolate on his abs—and lick it off, while I’m at it.
Trevor King. My nineteen year old son’s best friend.
Entirely off limits.
So when he shows up at my house to stay there for winter break, I’m stunned. He’s going to sleep HERE? Within touching distance?
I’m itching to feel his powerful body. I’ve watched it grow strong in the hockey rink, I know what it can do. And unless I’m crazy, his cocky smirk and intense eyes say he wants me, too.
My whole family is staying under the same roof for the holidays. They’d lose it if they caught me with a guy so much younger than me. Kissing him would be very, VERY wrong.
But what if he kisses me first?
This is a standalone novella with a HEA and NO cheating!
Penny Wylder writes just that– wild romances. Happily Ever Afters are always better when they’re a little dirty, so if you’re looking for a page turner that will make you feel naughty in all the right places, jump right in and leave your panties at the door!
12. Smut by Karina Halle
When I first met Blake Crawford, all I wanted to do was hit him in the face.
Maybe the groin.
Okay, maybe I wanted to kiss him too, but that’s neither here nor there. I mean, he may have a gorgeous English accent, sexy full lips and an ass I’d like to bite but…
Where was I?
Being in the same creative writing class, he’s the last person I wanted to speak to, let alone be paired up with for my final assignment.
But here comes the kicker…not only did our project end up getting us both As but we found out we work well together.
Really well together.
I hate him and he hates me and yet we churn out gold.
We’ve started writing self-published erotica under a pen name and let me tell you one thing…
Writing dirty sex scenes with the sexiest, most infuriating man you know is a lot harder than you think.
And keeping our hands off each other?
Well that’s another story…one with an ending I didn’t see coming.
Smut is a standalone, tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy from the NYT bestselling author of The Pact.
I absolutely loved this story! Review to come.
Purchase Smut by Karina Halle at Amazon ($2.99 Audible Upgrade)
13. After We Fall by Melanie Harlow
Jack Valentini isn’t my type.
Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.
Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.
But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.
His huge, hard muscles.
Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.
And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.
But he’s wrong.
I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.
14. All the Rage: A KING series spinoff by T.M. Frazier
They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.
I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.
You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.
And I’m a killer.
This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the shit buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.
Without dwelling on the past.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger…
All the Rage is a STANDALONE.

15. Sweet Cheeks by K. Bromberg
An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the Driven series.
It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.
I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.
With a plus one.
And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.
Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.
When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.
But I didn’t.
And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?
16. The Blogger Diaries Trilogy Boxed Set by KD Robichaux
Book 1: WISHED FOR YOU
Kayla’s Chick Rant & Book Blog
Blog Post: 1/17/15
My name is Kayla and I’m a blogger who believes in fairy tales. Through the anonymity of my blog, along with my reviews of the steamy novels I like to read, I tell the stories of my own search for love. No matter how disastrous they turn out—and believe me, you will ask yourself ‘Did that really happen?’—I never gave up, knowing my soul mate was out there somewhere.
When my big brother invited me to move to Houston for a semester of college, I jumped at the opportunity to leave my small hometown to see what it was like to live in a big city. Having no friends and not knowing where to go, I met a guy online and met up with him that night. Because…YOLO, right?
Turns out, he was an okay guy. Not ‘The One’, but still, a good enough guy to spend time with. But then, he introduced me to his best friend Jason, and my world tilted on its axis. The dark, tough, tatted-up guy, who was too broody for his own good, captivated me.
But he made it perfectly clear, I wasn’t his type.
IMPORTANT NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
The Blogger Diaries Trilogy is the true story of how I met, fell for, lost, and got a
second chance at love with my soul mate. The names of everyone EXCEPT me, Jason, my family, and my best friend have been changed to protect their identities. Full of youthful stupidity, leading to bad decisions and lots of angst, it is a real life story, where inevitably things are messy.
No one can look back at their late teens and early twenties and not think of moments that make them ask, What the hell was I thinking? Every second of this trilogy is true, exactly as it happened.
The first book, ‘Wished For You’, is a tale of finding ‘the one’ too early, and then having to let them go.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a true trilogy, meaning the first two books END ON CLIFFHANGERS. But if you take the journey with me, in the end, I promise you a happily ever after you will never forget.
I know I won’t.
Book 2: WISH HE WAS YOU
Kayla’s Chick Rant & Book Blog
Heartbroken and devastated, I moved back home to North Carolina after the man I loved more than anything told me he didn’t want me anymore.
After my disastrous dating history, I had finally found the one, my soul mate, and then he just threw me away like I meant nothing to him. So, what was I supposed to do now?
I did what any woman who had her heart ripped to shreds would do. I rebounded. And I rebounded hard.
My life spun and progressed at whirlwind speed as I tried desperately to fill the hole Jason had left inside me.
I had myself fooled for a while there, until the newness of everything wore off, until the whirlwind slowed to a grinding halt and I was forced to stop and realize exactly what I’d done. I suppose I could’ve trained myself to be content with Aiden, but all I did was…
Wish He Was You
Book 3: WISH COME TRUE

April 17, 2016
They say when you quit trying so hard, things will finally fall into place. So, I let go of my failed marriage to Aiden, focused all my attention on my daughter and finishing school while working a full-time job, and suddenly…
Barely breathing turned into surviving.
Surviving turned into being content.
Contentment turned into happiness.
All just my girl and me.
But there was still something missing, something I truly never thought I’d have.
My happily ever after.
17. Decidedly Off Limits by Stina Lindenblatt
Best Friend Rule #1: never want the guy’s sister.
Trent Salway is one of San Francisco’s hot up-and-coming-under-thirty bachelors. A highly successful mutual fund portfolio manager, a workaholic, and a ladies’ man, he’s got everything he could possibly want…except one thing.
Physical therapist Kelsey Quaid dumped her ex-fiancé six months ago because she was tired of not even being a distant second to his career. Which is why despite secretly crushing on her big brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember, there’s no way Kelsey can go there. One workaholic in her life is more than enough, thank you very much.
Before Kelsey’s brother leaves on his Navy SEAL mission, he asks Trent one simple request: make sure Kelsey isn’t dating any assholes while he’s away. As Trent does his best to do just this, he and Kelsey spend more and more time together. Sparks fly, as do a few items of clothing, and the next thing they know things are getting physical between them. Now, Trent has to decide what to do about the woman he’s falling for—the one whose brother would take him down faster than he takes down the enemy. And Kelsey will have to decide if Trent is just another workaholic or if he’s decidedly off limits.

20. 44 Chapters About 4 Men by BB Easton
***UPDATED SECOND EDITION FEATURING NEW SCENES AND COVER***
School psychologists aren’t supposed to write books about sex. Doing so would be considered “unethical” and “a fireable offense.” Lucky for you, ethics was never my strong suit.
After spending years trying to spice up my sex life, I gave up and took to my journal. Perhaps my gorgeous, cold, number crunching husband simply wasn’t capable of the kind of passion I’d come to expect. After all, my ex-boyfriends—a skinhead turned US Marine turned motorcycle club outlaw, a baby-faced punk rocker out on parole, and a heavy-metal bass player—were every bit as tattooed and testosterone-fueled as the leading men in my favorite romance novels. If I couldn’t have that kind of passion again in real life, I could at least write about it. Right? Nobody had to know. It would be my little secret.
Well, guess what? My husband read that shit.
And guess what else? He upped his fucking game.
Drunk with power and under the dubious advisement of my best friend and colleague, I began testing the limits—crafting journal entries specifically designed to manipulate Ken’s behavior. For the most part, he responded beautifully…except when he didn’t.

HE CAN BUY ANYTHING EXCEPT A SECOND CHANCE WITH ME…
Once, when I was young and stupid, I had that boy. The charmer, the Adonis, the one who torched every woman’s panties in our small town. He was my brother’s best friend, practically part of the family. When he proposed, he promised me forever.
Then the bastard disappeared without a word.

Worse, he wants me to play Cinderella again. I can’t. I won’t.
I don’t believe in second chances. I’ll never forget what he did.
And if he’s stupid enough to try kissing me with those unforgettable lips, he’s going to feel my teeth.
I did a terrible thing. No, I’m not talking about the filthy secret that wrecked everything.
Leaving Kara killed me. I didn’t have a choice. No amount of money, success, or bedding any woman I want whenever I flash my patented smirk makes up for losing her.
She was the one. Hell, she still is.
Time to remind her why. Whatever it takes to put my ring on her hand for good.
I’m ready for the curses, the screams, the burn of her palm against my cheek. I’ll taste her lips again, even if she bites.
