At what point do you stop fighting the events that have long been predetermined by the course of fate?
Cara Savannah falls fast and falls hard. She always has. The problem is the kind of guys she falls for. They aren't interested in anything more than a one night stand. Finally fed up with the years of heartache and lack of meaningful relationships, she vows to turn over a new leaf. Cara is going to let love take a backseat and focus on herself. Most importantly- no more tattooed bad boys. The question is, how long can she manage to evade what fate has orchestrated for her?
Abel Mileski is every bit your typical bad boy on the exterior, but life’s left him broken and jaded. After years of meaningless sex with girls only seeing him for his good looks and tattoos, he sees no value within himself. Ready for a change, he shuts down his desires and immerses himself in his career. However, when fate intervenes, he is completely unprepared. Meeting Cara ignites his desires. She’s not fazed by his ink, and when he tries to charm her, he fails... Stunned by her instant dislike of him, he is determined to find out why.
After months of sexual tension, they make a decision that will forever change their lives. Will that decision be what ultimately wrecks them or brings them back together?
Hot fireman alert! Hot tatted man alert! What a minute…you get both in one HOT man! Abel Mileski is one hot package. He is determined to get the girl, Cara Savannah. Cara is determined to stay away from Abel. She has sworn off all tattooed bad boys just like Abel. She has a bad habit of falling fast and hard for them, only to get her heart broken.
However, it’s hard to avoid him all together since her best friend, Alexis, is in a relationship to his brother, Vince. Even though Abel is a playboy, he is determined to win Cara and give up his playing ways. There is just something about her that draws him in. He is super sweet and I love how he keeps trying and finds ways through her defenses. He really is a great guy.
They fall fast and hard for each other as they finally give in to the heat. I absolutely love them together. They are both a little damaged, but together, they are perfect. They are always there for each other, always lending support when needed. And my, oh my, is the sex H-O-T!
Of course, what makes a good book even better, than a little bit of drama? They hit a huge snag in the relationship. The author added the right amount of angst. I HAD to keep reading to find out what happened. I fell in love with Abel even more during this hard time. His true character showed through.
This is a quick read, with A LOT of steam. I can’t wait to read to read book 3, Essentialism, Bridgette and Troy’s story.
My phone vibrates in my clutch and I pull it out. Abel leans over to look at the screen. It’s a text from my sister. He grabs my phone out of my hand, and starts to program his phone number in it. I stare at him and he looks at me with one eyebrow cocked.
“I know you’re going to need that eventually. I want you have it now, so you can get a hold of me if you need anything, okay?”
I nod my head and look at the screen; he programmed his number into my phone as Chief Abel. I laugh at him, “Are you serious?”
“What? I am a fire chief and my first name is Abel.”
I shake my head unable to respond. “Don’t shake your head at me,” he says as he drags me to the bar. “Can we get two shots of Patrón please?” I look at him and shake my head again. “I told you not to shake your head at me.”
“I don’t like shots.”
“Well, tonight you do.”
The bartender slides two full shot glasses of clear poison over to us and two lime wedges on a napkin. My mouth drips looking at the limes. Yum, I love them. I go to grab a lime and eat it, but Abel grabs my wrist. “Not yet, haven’t you ever taken a shot of tequila before?”
“Not in years and when I did I never used limes. I’m more of a Jager girl.”
“I’m gonna have to show you how to do this then.”
I tilt my head to the side as he slides the shot glass towards me. “Patrón is one of my favorite tequilas. You probably like Jager because it’s smooth. Tequila can be that way as well -- if you drink the right ones. First, you have to get yourself in the right mental state to enjoy it. As you take the shot, let it roll down your throat. Imagine it as a delicacy that you are savoring. Are you ready?”
I nod my head and lift the glass to my lips. I tip it back and let it roll down my throat just like he said. I realize my eyes are closed and my lips are parted. I feel the cool, smooth texture of a lime being placed into my mouth and I look at him.
“Bite down and suck on it,” he whispers, leaning into my neck.
I do as he asks and he takes his free arm pulling me against him. Immediately I feel his erection straining against his pants. Everything within me ignites; I enjoy every sensation hitting me at once, and then he pulls my lime away. I look at him pissed; damn it, I want more. He smirks at me and knocks his shot back. Grabbing the lime he takes a quick bite and sets it in the empty cup.
“Come on, before you unman me watching you eat a lime. Just so you know, we’re not taking shots again.”
“What? I thought I did good,” I protest.
“Oh, kitten, you did better than good. That’s why we won’t be doing it again.”
