Newly divorced Lacey Meyers wasted too many years yawning through sex in the missionary position. Now she's looking for a hookup with a man who can make her shatter. What she gets is a hot younger cop with handcuffs...and he's not afraid to use them.
Hunter Anderson knows the score-though classy, successful women like Lacey might play with guys like him, at the end of the evening, they walk. But when one night leads to another and then another, he finds himself getting too attached to a woman he can't have.
Lacey knows Hunter - gorgeous, hard-edged and eight years younger - won't want anything permanent. No matter how hot and daring he makes her first public sex, quickie, backseat encounter and secret fantasy role-play, she can't mistake adventurous sex for emotional involvement.
They both know it's got to end, and soon, or someones going to get hurt.
I don't usually go for contemporary romance, but a goodreads friend posted such a wonderful review I had to give it a read. The passion and electricity between Hunter and Lacey is amazing. They meet one night in a bar when Lacey is looking to "hook up" after her divorce. But they are great together and start spending time with each other out of the bedroom. But like most of us in the real world, they have insecurities. Hunter has never been in love, and doesn't think he can fit in her "upper class" world. Lacey thinks she can do casual, but she really isn't made for that. But her divorce left her with alot of naive notions about sex and love. Watching their romance play out was in no way boring, Hunter and Lacey are dynamic and I instantly fell for both of them. I became completely emotionally involved with their romance. turning every page hoping for the right outcome. I was not disappointed.
(Ellora's Cave is usually not what one would call "vanilla" or contemporary romance. They are usually so hot they come with a warning.)
