Blurb: She’s ready to make her move…
Lupine shifter Daphne’s recent move back home gives her a chance with the fierce and sexy male she’s always wanted: jaguar shifter Hector. She plans to show him she’s all grown up, and more than enough woman for him. But a vampire from her past has been harassing her and will stop at nothing to make her his.
He’s not letting her go this time…
Hector knows Daphne can take care of herself, but he immediately steps in to protect her from a stalker. He’s lusted after the sweet and sensual she-wolf for years and won’t let anything come between them now. With circumstances forcing them to share a roof, Hector won’t hide his attraction toward her any longer. But Daphne underestimates her stalker’s persistence and it might be too late for Hector to keep the woman he loves safe.
Favorite excerpt: “You’d really let me drive your bike for a kiss? And not just for a measly block or two?”
“You can have it all day if you want. Do we have a deal?” He held back a grin as her jasmine scent intensified. She was definitely turned on and he hoped it was because of him, not his damn bike.
She shrugged. “Sure. A kiss is no big deal.”
He nearly growled at her flippant words and stepped closer. When they did kiss, it would be a big deal. He’d make sure of it.
Her eyes started to flutter closed as he leaned down, and though he desperately wanted to kiss her, to pull her close, he didn’t. Moving until his mouth was a fraction from her earlobe, he whispered, “I didn’t say it would be on your lips or how long it would last.” Let her make of that what she wanted.
Thoughts: No one does paranormal romances like Katie Reus. Huge fan that I am of her, every book she issues is a one-click buy for me. And this hits on one of my favorite troupes, the friends to lover troupe, with the added best-friend’s brother angle thrown in. Reus does that emotional angst and craving like nobody’s business – you practically feel your chest clench with emotion as you read. This one was perfect – a little short, but that’s okay….Reus knows how to make use of the pages she gas, and you never feel cheated in her books.
What can I say? It’s another hit!
