Returning home brings the most unexpected surprises…
Melissa Johnson, aka, the Brat, didn’t believe in happily ever after. She also blames James Bauer for ruining her for other men. After years of crushing on him, Melissa knew she had to get him out of her system.
James Bauer needs to protect his bachelorhood. He's always enjoyed the single life and dreads returning home to see his matchmaker mother. Fate had other plans however, when he finds his nemesis in tight black leather...working at a dance club, of all places.
One touch ignites a fire between Melissa and James, but will it be enough to keep them together?
Clarissa Yip has become a must-read for me. In this book, she has taken a short story and done all the right things with it. While brief, she expertly set up conflict, plot, heat, and familial relationships. I left the story feeling like I had spent a lot of time with the people in the story.
James and Melissa are fantastic. They have heat when they look at each other and they steam in the bedroom. I just adored it. I think fans of really good writing and really hot love scenes will ADORE this book. I did.
