About the Book:
There’s no such thing as a little in love…
Elle Wheaten’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .
There’s no such thing as a little in lust…
Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. But now that she’s earned happiness and success, Archer just wants Elle 24/7. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco Earthquake, and Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .
There is such a thing as…
As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along…
When I read The Trouble with Mistletoe I mentioned that the supporting cast blew me away and that was definitely true about Elle and Archer. I couldn’t wait to read their story and it definitely did not disappoint.
Both characters were scrappy, had their flaws and had you falling in love with them. The chemistry was sizzling and I loved their sparring as they tried to fight their attraction. I loved Elle’s character because she’s strong and independent but not stupidly independent. She makes her own choices but doesn’t do stupid things just to prove she is independent. Archer is just sex on two legs and while I would have shared Elle’s frustration with Archer’s meddling in her life, I still couldn’t resist him. Then you toss in Joe and Spence who had me cracking up constantly and this was a book I fell in love with.
I am dying to read Spence’s story. Definitely glad this one blew me out of the water after The Trouble with Mistletoe being just meh for me.
