About this ebook

My life was boring until I met him.


Painfully tedious, pathetically lonely, and I absolutely hated it.


But I was too scared to do anything about it. Too scared to change . . . at least until I met Kace.


I should have been terrified of him—scared of his size (he towered over my short, curvy self), freaked out by the fierce tats covering his arms and torso (they even crawled up his neck), and definitely frightened by the angry scowl he unleashed on anyone who dared to disrupt him (though this happened rarely, it still did happen).


Except, Kace seemed to like me—shy, boring, socially inept me. He couldn’t change the tats or the towering, but he rarely unleashed his trademark scowl on me.


Okay, so maybe it was more like he tolerated me, but regardless, Kace didn’t seem to care that I hung around the bar he worked at, putting my night owl tendencies to work as I wrote.


See, my work was the only place I explored. My safe place to write as dirty and steamy and kinky of books as I wanted.


My readers loved them—loved the hot sex, the tough alphas, the guaranteed happy endings. As thus, I made good money, only somewhat because I was a decent writer, but mostly because my imagination was very active, beyond active . . . some might even say too active.


As for me personally? I’d never experienced anything close to the types of things I wrote.


But I’d decided it was time to change that.


With scowly, sexy, terrifying Kace.

I really enjoyed the book. It was truly a page turner and each page kept on promising more. Even when i reached the epilogue i never felt like closing the book. I also loved the choice of words, they never failed to take me deeper and deeper. I loved how it was funny and sexy at the same time. I just loved all the roller coaster of feelings that it took me on. Thank you for all the lovely books you write.

4.5 Stars I gobbled this book right up. It was a fast read for me and I finished in one day. I really couldn't put it down. I loved Brooke and Kace. Their banter was one of my favorite parts of the book. Brooke is my kind of people. I would want to hang out with her any day. I really loved Kace. Boy is he yummy and he has quite a few swoon worthy moments. I highly recommend taking a ride of their journey. You won't be disappointed! I also like the set up for the next book. It has me already eagerly awaiting it!

Good book. Brooke kinda annoyed me at the beginning. she could write books based on Kace but when he calls her babe/baby she gets mad. once she finally gets out of her head, their relationship blooms. Kace 8s swee5 and understanding!
