I trust you …
Crossing my arms over my chest, my face was a stony mask as I glared at him. He wasn’t going to manipulate me. For the moment I’d keep my mouth shut even though it was against my nature to do so, at least until I found out the information I needed to bust his ass.
“This isn’t over, Daniel. And just so you know, I have no plans of sleeping with you or letting you back into my life, let alone touch me, so you can get that thought out of your mind. It’s not going to happen.”
Striding up to the door, Daniel unlocked it and held it open for me. “After you, sweetheart,” he said, his face beaming as if he’d won. He fingered the strap of my dress and caressed my skin, making me cringe. “Just keep all of this to yourself and everything will be fine. I personally like the alternative.”
“The answer is no,” I repeated more firmly. “You can threaten me all you want, but my decision is not going to change. If this is how you try to get me back in your bed, you’re going about it the wrong way, asshole.”
I stormed off but he kept his pace beside me. I groaned when I realized he was going to walk with me back to the table; not to mention he was just a little too close. Before we got within ear shot of Brett and Ashley, he lowered his voice and said, “By the time I’m done with you I’ll have you worn down and saying yes before you know it.”
I don’t think so.
I love book series that can be read as standalones, but also incorporate characters from other books within the series, and I should have know that Melissa would get her second chance at love when she was first introduced in Love's Second Chance.
While I found it hard to connect with the characters and story at the beginning of the first book in this series, I had no problem jumping right into this one, and I loved the characters from the get go. The idea of a sexy one night stand coincidentally becoming more was very appealing, especially with someone like Brett in the mix. He and Melissa's chemistry was smoking hot, and I liked that Brett was sexy but not your typical bad boy.
This book was filled with romance and sensuality, but I loved that it wasn't all about Brett and Melissa's relationship. There was intrigue and mystery, and as the story developed the more suspenseful it became, to the point where it got extremely frightening. Daniel was one psycho douche bag who deserved so much worse than he got.
This book grabbed my attention from page one and took me on one crazy ride. I loved every second.
