Dark, sensual romance with protective, possessive hero,
This review is from: Standing In The Shadows (The McCloud Brothers, Book 2) (McClouds & Friends) (Kindle Edition)
Its not very often that I give 5 stars, but this book was so emotionally charged and captivating with such refreshing and interesting hero that it just ticked all the right boxes for me.
I like this book better than the first one (Seth and Rain Behind closed doors). This one is as intense, gritty, erotic and full of angst that keep your emotions on edge. Damn Connor! he is my dream hero..I would not expect him to be so endearing and flashing out with so much qualities.....YES he was gruff, bossy, possessive and intense but MY GOD... he had that half side of his personality that i fell in love with and was even jealous of Erin to have him! YES for the first time I am jealous! I loved the fact that there was that forbidden element with Connor' and Erin' love...and i even liked better the fact that Connor could not stay away from sweet, innocent and beautiful Erin when she was just 16 years old and add that her father was Connors boss. Connor was so overwhelmed with his feelings for Erin, all that consuming love for her...he was not interested in relationships with other women because he was obsessed with Erin and only so her..I like that in a hero, when there is only one woman that can fulfill his longing and passion....and my absolute favorite....he stayed faithful to his love for her....not destroying it like his brother mansl*t Sean f****g different girl every night!
Connor was dreaming about Erin and wanted her to be his bride...for goodness sake he gave her a beautiful diamond ring..who would not resist this sexy, delicious and sweet hero? It was inevitable that they would reconnect together and when the trouble strikes at Erin Connor was there faster than light...devoted to protect her at any cost and finally put an end to their separation. Even though many though him crazy over his worst enemy Novak he did not back down a bit with his protectiveness over Erin. I just loved Connor's other softer side..the vulnerability and insecurity he showed towards Erin just made me love him more....He was an alpha hero, possessive, oversexed and needy but also very uncertain around Erin and that gave him extra dimension. Erin was likable, sweet and smart enough to know there was something very creepy going on around her family and hold tight to Connor. I liked that she unleashed Connor's passion for her and was not scared to take it...raw and aggressive. I love their slow emotional buildup and sex was as hot and intense....I was so captivated by their interactions, it kept me reading and stayed glued to the pages with anticipation and feeling on edge...there was so much tenderness between them..Erin washing and cutting Connor's hair, Erin saying that.."even though his brothers were extremely handsome they could not beat him" and that she visited him in the hospital when he was in a coma...reading to him and talking to him just proved how much she loves him! But Connor saying first that HE LOVES HER was just so sweet and romantic that somehow restored my believe that there are still some good heroes out there who are not scared to admit their feelings to the women they loved and a man does not need to be a manslut to prove he's a man but being simple himself is enough!
