All Anna wants for her fortieth birthday is a ladies’ night out. Her plans are stalled when she ends up stuck in her griffin costume. The mascot for the Alexandria Griffins, she never expects to be rescued by the star of her midnight fantasies, quarterback Kyran Black. Called “The Rebel” by the press because of his long hair, tattoos and playboy stats off the field, he’s everything Anna should avoid.
Kyran is gorgeous and irresistible and he suggests they celebrate her birthday together. Certain she’s too old for him, she agrees to one night. Kyran’s charm and dominance in bed blitz Anna’s defenses, teaching her things about sex she never thought she’d experience.
But when their one-night stand turns into a relationship, his bad-boy past comes back to threaten their future.
This is one of the best erotic romances I have ever read. It is Anna’s fortieth birthday and although she has managed to get stuck in her mascot uniform, a job she uses to supplement her teaching career, she is excited about going out with her girlfriends to look at strippers. Kyran has other ideas. He has lusted after Anna since he first saw her, even if she gave him a fake phone number that night so that he couldn’t call her.
There evening together prompts a series of events that make for intriguing suspense, pain, and love all mixed into one wonderful book. Kyran is an ideal hero: real, flawed, and sometimes arrogant. I loved Anna. She’s smart and capable. Together, they were a fantastic couple.
I say bravo to this book and bravo to the author for writing it.
