“You were there when I needed you.”
This was one of those books that I deem a “cute” read, it had all the elements of a great romance with an added side of angst…not a lot, but enough. Georgia Cates always writes a swoon worthy male and Oliver Thorn aka Stout was no exception and with a heroine that knew what she wanted out of life and in the bedroom made for an easy read that I didn’t want to end.
Stout first appeared in Tap as one of the owners of the Lovibond brewery and now we get his story. Stout had been burned by love and now kept his heart well and truly guarded. After being betrayed by who he thought was his forever love he had jumped from bed to bed in a vain attempt at proving his virility, but he soon realised it was pointless and meaningless. Since his eureka moment he has just been biding his time patiently waiting to find “the one.” Lawry, Oliver’s sister, who we know from book one, Tap, persuades him to sell his bachelor pad and buy a house, on moving day, Stout becomes acquainted with his next door neighbour, one fiery redhead. Moving had never looked like such a great idea.
“If you’re going to be the man in her life, be the amazing man in her life. Be the strong one who puts her needs above your own.”
Adelyne, said fiery redhead, is a successful event planner and is a workaholic. Having moved away from home and the life of a preacher’s daughter she appreciated and needed her own life. Adelyne had also been burned by love and had been out of the field for years. She kept her secrets close to her chest and all men at arm’s length…that was until Oliver moved in next door. With a basket of baked goods their paths cross for the first time.
“He asked me to not defile you when five minutes prior you had sucked my dick and swallowed my cum. I can’t lie. I felt kinda bad about it.”
Georgia Cates delivers a romance that will have your heart warmed from the very beginning. Two people that are desperate to be loved and wanted while wanting the ability to trust completely. Two people perfectly suited on the outside and inside but have a little “problem” in the bedroom, our Adelyne is a little kinky and likes her men Alpha. Our Stout is manly in all the right places but has always appreciated the female form and is as gentle as they come. Stout needs to find the alpha within.
“Take me to your bedroom. Let’s experiment. Compromise.
…Trust me, Thorn. I’ll never ask you to hurt me; I don’t enjoy pain. But I like a firm grip.”
I loved their story and was truly rooting for them from the very beginning. I loved their relationship, their banter and it their relationship moved from friends to lovers at a believable pace. I loved their jealous tendencies and some of the banter from side characters had me in hysterics. I laughed and swooned a lot with these two. My only niggle was that some parts felt a little rushed. This was an endearing story that will leave you smiling from ear to ear. We have had Tap and Stout, now what will Porter have in store? Maybe an employee’s daughter?…not to be missed
“Falling in love feels like playing with fire, but Adelyn’s a flame I can’t resist. She may very well burn me alive because no man can stand in fire and not be consumed by it.”
I have to be honest and say that it took me a while to warm up to Adelyn. I thought she was very blunt and brusque with the way she disclosed some really personal details about her life to Oliver. It felt a bit too much too soon for me. I did think that when we see her vulnerability and how Oliver reacts to her wants/needs in the bedroom , it was very well written and I really felt for her then. Both these characters have been to hell and back in the past but together they can heal their old wounds.
Another reason for not giving 5 stars may sound petty....I'm sorry, this is purely personal ....but it drove me batty that the characters have so many names.
Oliver aka Thorn/Ollie/Stout.
Adelyn aka Max/ Addie
Lawrence aka Lawry/Wren
Lucas aka Luc/ Boudreaux/ Brou / Tap
That's probably just me though. Rant over!
Overall I enjoyed this book very much. There's lots of emotional healing. Some twists and turns I didn't see coming. Some angst but nothing too worrying. Lots of sex in this book. Lots and lots. Good to see the other characters too~ I'm looking forward to Porter's story.
Just to say this is not a short book at all, but it stopped at 79% on my Kindle and then sampled other work by Georgia.
HEA? Yes and a gorgeous epilogue.
