If you’re a fan of hot and sensual romances, you’ll love this book. Add to that the wonderful second chance love story, and you have perfection. There wasn’t one thing that I didn’t love about Carson and Tawny’s story. It’s important for an author to create a plausible reason for the break-up and time apart as well as the reason for reconciliation. In this case, the love and passion that Carson and Tawny experienced during college was too much for them to handle or even understand. Like any young and confused woman, she ran away to avoid the feelings and uncontrollable need that Carson brought out in her. And he wasn’t ready to chase her back then. After spending a decade apart, they are both ready to fight for the love that has burned within since the moment they said goodbye. I adored watching them come back to each other and find the passion that they were never able to attain with anyone else.
It was so easy to fall in love with these characters and their story. I enjoyed learning about their families and Tawny’s work as a perfumer. I was happy to find that there was very little drama and a whole lot of communication in the present. It made their journey that much more enjoyable. Oh, and I can’t forget about the epilogue! So perfect! I can’t wait to see where Carson and Tawny are in their relationship when Brett’s story comes out.
This was my first book in the Bad series, and I can’t wait to read about the rest of the brothers. I’m absolutely hooked on these oh so bad boys!
Second chances really do exist…
As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover, Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life–in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything.
Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved–the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?
Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it’s only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she’s back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…
