I protect what’s mine.
The ranch, my family, our buried secrets.
Nothing will stop me from reassembling the life that went terribly wrong.
Not the law.
Not our enemies.
Not even Maybe Quinn.
The gorgeous, quarrelsome journalist shouldn’t have meddled.
I shouldn’t have let her stay.
But she’s hiding something in those deceptive blue eyes.
Something deeper than her thirst for a news story.
I make a deal with her to buy time.
To unravel her lies. To play with her. To satisfy my darker appetites.
When she buckles beneath my belt, I’ll send her away.
Unless I buckle first.
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
If Oklahoma has cowboys like Jarret Holsten, I imagine there isn’t one woman who doesn’t quiver when in their presence.
❝… no one comes close to the contagious passion and soulful strength that Conor possesses. I suspect no one ever will.
F*ck it all if I find that person. I’ll latch on so tightly she won’t stand a chance.
I’ll move mountains.
Stake my claim.
Piss all over my territory.
Rearrange my entire existance until we buckle together beneath the intensity.
I want what Jake had with Conor. I f*cking crave it.❞
Jarret Holsten is a good guy. That is when he isn’t killing someone. His brand of justice aside, he’s loyal to the ones he loves and when he loves, his love is the all-consuming-take your breath away, kind of love.
And Jarret knew the minute Maybe walked up to him at the bar that she would not be someone easily walked away from. He was impressed by her steel backbone, he learned to enjoy her mouthiness and was turned on by the fire in her eyes.
❝She’s a dream I ache to remain awake for, an erotic canvas to be explored and appreciated.❞
Maybe Quinn was looking for answers, not romance when she came to Oklahoma. The secrets that the twins, Jake and Jarret held could be the answers to her problems. She just had to convince them to trust her and tell her what had been going on at the ranch.
Maybe was fierce, strong and funny. While she liked to have fun she also stood up for what she believed in and didn’t back down. She too, loved with her whole being, often times, putting her wants and needs aside for the people she loved. Falling in love with Jarret was a complication she didn’t need but also something she couldn’t resist.
I loved that the sensual moments in this erotic novel complimented the story, they were not the focus. Often times, when the story revolves around the sex, I lose interest so I appreciated the fact that while Jarret loved his kink, there was so much more about him that was explored.
❝The riding crop has many uses. … On the rance, we use them to discipline horses. But when you’re with me …❞ I pause within striking distance. ❝This crop will be the liberation of your vagina.❞
❝Oh My God❞ She shakes her head in disbelief. ❝My vagina does NOT need to be liberated.❞
This book was such a pleasure to read. While reading, either my heart was in my throat, tears were in my eyes, or I was bellowing with laughter. Those last few chapters were perfect! And, And, OMG, LORNE, his book is NEXT! With the revelations in this book, I cannot wait to get inside his head. I have some theories so I can’t wait to see if I am right!
