Length: 64 pages
He hasn’t been with a woman in five years. She hasn’t been with a real man … until now. VIVIAN I’ve had enough of the crap that goes along with living in the city. So, I packed for a weeklong vacation in the mountains. Isolation in a cabin for the next seven days sounds like a good way to recoup and get my life back in order. After getting lost while hiking, I stumble upon a cabin that has me questioning whether to ask for help, or if I should brave staying the night in the woods. JAKE I left everything behind years ago after the woman I was with betrayed me. Now I work as a lumberjack and live my life as a recluse. Being celibate for the last five years says a lot about my self-control, but I’m a man and have needs, and not giving into what I really want is hard as hell. But I can’t let myself get close to anyone, not even for a few hours. Getting close is how I got screwed over before. As soon as I see Vivian, I know I have to have her. It’s been forever since I’ve had a woman. Because of a storm rolling in, she’ll have to stay with me overnight. We could do a lot of filthy things in that time. I pride myself on my control, but when it comes to Vivian, I don’t know if I can keep my hands to myself. I know I can’t. I have needs, and it’s clear Vivian’s in need of a real man to help her unwind. I can certainly help her in that department. Warning: If you’re looking for a sappy, pull-your-heartstring kind of book … this isn’t it. If you want a short and dirty story featuring an all-around alpha hero who hasn’t had a woman in years, and a heroine who’ll find out what it’s like to be with a real man ... this might be for you.
Three Boundless Stars
This title kept coming up on my FB feed. At 64 pages I thought, “why not”. This story had some potential.
“I don’t know if you realize what you’ve agreed to …Five years without a woman has made me feral, Vivian.”
With lines like that I was settling myself in for a quick scorcher; it started off with a whole bunch of ATM, too each their own, but getting one’s salad tossed is not something I want to read about. I don’t mind it glassed over for a second, but when it’s a main focus for a few pages it squicks me out. So yeah, that kinda ruined it for me; one problem of being a germaphobe.
This is one of those instant attraction HAE books. It was down and dirty, rough and naughty. I am rating it 3 Boundless Stars for “it was good.”
