ALEXA RILEY's kind of smut romance is my favourite! This week's treat is...
Releasing February, 15th
Eli Strong got out of the military and all he wanted to do was get better. He never expected that the officer he was living with would have a daughter who tested his honor.
Maggie Drummond has been moved around more times than she can count, and starting at a new high school sucks. But when a wounded Marine comes to live with her and her dad, suddenly Maggie’s figures out what home is.
She’s forbidden fruit, and he’s trying to not to taste… But desire can only be denied for so long. Circumstances keep pulling them back together, and something truly unforeseen happens. Overnight, Eli becomes a guardian and Maggie his ward.
Will Eli keep his hands off Maggie? Will Maggie like it if he doesn’t? Will the two of them break the law because it feels so good? Only one way to find out!
Warning: This book will make you ache in the best way possible! It’s so sweet it’s disgusting, and yet we just can’t stop. It’s a coming-of-age story that’s just what the author ordered. So eat up and enjoy!
A pretty story that made my heart flutter with emotion and sheer cuteness. It's a long novella and I couldn't be any happier that the author decided to develop her latest imagining with so much love and care.
The characters are fully fleshed out, adorable in the way their feelings slowly grow into a permanent bond. There is a little taboo with the age gap, respectfully addresses as the man takes it very seriously and never crosses a hard line. I loved that he was an injured veteran, intent on recovering, and protecting his mentor's daughter while staying at their house.
All the relationships were very warm. Friendship, father-daughter, and the forbidden, really sweet couple. Excitingly enough, another romance was budding in the background. It only heightened the motional side of this very pretty story of fated love with a few secrets and a dramatic upheaval in the end. I loved every second of it. And it even comes with a bonus that will melt your heart!. And fall in love like real.
Have a smutty week, book buddies :-)
