Leather and lace don't strike sparks. Or do they?
It's Valentine's Day, but Macy Rodgers isn't feeling the love. Aside from a torrid, one-night fling in a backseat a few months back, her love life has been sorely lacking, but fortunately she has devious friends who feel like playing Cupid. Wouldn't they be shocked to learn that the match they've made for her is the same one that steamed up the back of that '69 GTO...
Seth "Ghost" Warren has just returned to town after an extended absence. Between his grandmother's failing health, his job as a tattoo artist, his band's gigs, and a crazy ex that won't leave him alone, he's stretched thin. Cautious cowgirl Macy is the last thing he needs thrown into the mix.
She's all country, he's all heavy metal—and Macy knows that if anyone can propel her out of her rut, it's Seth. But when their worlds collide, it's anyone guess if they'll survive with their hearts intact.
Warning: Contains explicit sex, graphic language, road trips, troublemaking exes, emotional baggage, and an unconventional but exceptionally hot hero tatted and pierced for your pleasure...
Look. You all know how much I love my steamy reads, yes? Every week I get especially giddy when I know it's time to pick out my next Sexy Saturday book. So when I finally decided that Leave Me Breathless could wait no longer, I just knew that I was in for a particularly steamy treat.
**Full Disclosure: This isn't so much of a review as it is me losing my sh*t over Leave Me Breathless. You've been warned.**
*deep breath* THIS EFFING BOOK! Y'all I love Leave Me Breathless so freaking much that I kind of want to punch something. I want to take this book, put it in my pocket and carry it around with me for-e-ver. (preferably with a vibrating option, lol. Just kidding!) But seriously, I had ridiculously high expectations. Rock Me, book two in the Ross Siblings series is one of my very favorite books. And I honestly did not think Leave Me Breathless could come even close to competing with Brian Ross, tattoo artist extraordinaire, in all his apa glory. (Seriously, people, google that.) But it did. It really, really did.
We meet Seth "Ghost" Warren and Macy Rodgers in Rock Me. Ghost is Brian's best friend and best employee, and Macy is Candace's best friend. They are an unlikely pair, to say the least. But unlikely pairs are always the most fun to see come together. To see to people fall for one another, despite their best efforts. To see each realize that their preconceived notions may be wrong. To see them fight to be together, despite the odds. Seth and Macy may seem all wrong for each other. Macy wants the American Dream: marriage with a clean-cut guy, kids, the white picket fence. Seth offers her him in all his non-conformist ways, but he also offers her full acceptance, and the courage to be free. Seth, with his painful past and painful love life, doesn't see himself ever settling down, ever being what Macy could want and accept. Macy offers him security, a safe place to land. Her full heart.
Leave Me Breathless is hot hot hot. True to form with the men in this series, Ghost has skills. Tattoos. And a piercing. Multiple piercings. I just...I just can't even explain what this does to me. Are you guys picking up what I'm putting down? Ghost is One Hot Mother F'er. I need more ice, y'all.
Leave Me Breathless, this entire series, is at the top of my favorites list. I don't say that lightly. If they get any better, any hotter... Cherrie Lynn just may kill me.
Tattooed. Pierced. Shaved head, though right now he wore a black baseball cap pulled low over his eyes with the hood of his black sweatshirt over it.
The very antithesis to everything she wanted, or thought she wanted.
He was looking right at her, shit-eating grin in place, one dark eyebrow arched. That stare was like a vacuum. Or a black hole. Nothing could escape it.
"Are you all right, Macy? You look a little flushed."
Just as Macy began to nod quickly, Ghost swigged his beer and jerked his head in her direction. "She looks that way because I have my hand up her skirt."
He did not just say that. She went ramrod straight and snapped her legs closed as everyone at the table laughed. Candace said, "Oh, you wish."
All Macy had succeeded in doing was trapping his hand between her thighs.
"Why, Macy. A nice young lady like yourself, asking such a thing. I'm appalled."
"Oh, come on. Guys always know how big they are."
"Big enough that I should tie a bow around it and attach a little card that says 'To: Macy. You're welcome. Love, Seth.' "
"Do I freak you out a little?"
She looked him in the eye. "Yes."
"Do I still?"
"Good. Let me know if I ever stop. I'll have to think up something new."
"I wish I could even describe to you how I felt that first night we were together. I can't, though, because the only words going through my mind were holy f*cking shit. That's it. Over and over. That you had even looked my way once, that you agreed to meet up, that you actually pulled the first move and didn't tease or stop me--my life could've ended that night, Macy, and I'd have considered it complete. You are the best I've ever had. If all we do from now on is straight missionary sex at eight p.m. on Tuesday nights of months that start with J, you'll still be the best I ever had."
But whatever else happened, those little words would keep him going forever. Whatever else happened, for at least one moment in his life, Macy had loved him. But he would do his damnedest to turn the moment into a lifetime.
