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 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!
And I can believe I’m saying this! I missed the breeding! LolYes… things happen between them. But it was a slow start. And it felt rushed when they finally did get together.
It was hot…. but I felt it was missing some of the dirty instant naughtiness that I’ve come to love in a Alexa Riley book.
I liked the feel of the second story in this book. But I have to be honest here. It was a bit distracting. Because in that second story. We get the feel of a classic Alexa Riley book. The alpha male. The shy timid young girl. A bit of sneaking around. And the dirty sex!
I felt we got more action in a way from Alice and Thomas story than we did from Eli and Maggie’s. It was kind of a shame. I really wasn’t feeling Alice.
Don’t get me wrong… I still loved this book. Eli was a perfect gentleman with Maggie. But I felt it was missing something. The waiting was what through me off. The story needed to be a little more longer and slightly more developed if you were going to add two stories in one. Get the full effect from both couples.
The ending was nice…..Sweet. I wish we would have gotten more from Eli and Maggie. But overall a ok story.
