“I had to sneeze.”
I should’ve taken her insurance information and driven off like any reasonable CEO with places to be would.
She crashed into my car, for heaven’s sake. Because she had to sneeze.
What did I do? I didn’t get in my car and drive away if that’s what you’re thinking.
Nope. I stuck around. I could suggest I stayed because she needed help, but the truth? She was really, really hot.
We became fast friends. Then friends with benefits. Before I knew it, we were involved in an illicit office romance that had me fumbling through a drawerful of panties to get a Post-It.
It was supposed to be easy—a fling, if you will. A dashing millionaire hero (*adjusts tie*) and a beautiful (stubborn, frustratingly independent, hell-on-wheels) damsel in distress. (Don’t tell her I said that.)
It wasn’t supposed to be forever, but we did want a happy ending. (Pun intended.) We could’ve made it work, too.
But one of us overcomplicated things with the L-word. And the other? They omitted a truth that changed everything.
Author's Note: Relentless, a full-length, standalone novel in the Mason Family Series, delivers a dose of heat and heart. Enjoy!
4 Heart Review by Ashley
The Mason's are back and as ornery and wonderful as ever.
The first time Shaye and Oliver crashed into each other was equal parts anxiety inducing and hilarious. I loved the spark between them amidst the chaos. And how Oliver wasn't shy about what he was feeling. Too bad Shaye wasn't interested, well not much anyway.
Imagine both of their surprise when fate threw her hat in the ring to put them back into each other's orbit. With them forced into proximity, it was only a matter of time before that bubble of want popped. And when it did...whew hot!! But all it took was one moment for all that hope and promise they had been building to crumble.
Oh my heart, how it ached- for both of them. But I loved how Shaye stood her ground even as it was crumbling. And how the Mason's rallied around Oliver and told him what he needed to hear to get his head and heart straight.
Le sigh...Relentless is the kind of book I love to get swept away in. Sharp, witty banter, strong friendships. Family that is always there, even when you don't want them to be. And a romance that is equal parts sexy and sweet. And that ending has me so ready to see what Adriana Locke has in store for Wade the wizard!
