Warning: This is one dark, dangerous, dirty-talking, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. Are you ready?
I’ve got a big c*ck, a bigger bank account, and zero interest in Happily Ever After. I just want to feel alive, to look into a woman’s eyes and see something that’s going to keep my mind off all the shit I refuse to think about for an hour or two.
And then I meet her, a good girl with a body made for sin and ugly problems only a bad man can fix.
A bad man like me…
Gabe Alexander is the devil. Or an angel.
He’s a criminal hiding behind a millionaire dollar pedigree, but he also saved my life and my family. He’s the worst kind of bad news, but every time he touches me, and whispers filthy, beautiful things in my ear, all I want is more.
More of his kiss, his touch, and the dangerous, seductive things he makes me feel.
I don’t want to go bad, but the man makes it feel so damned good…
Warning Part the Second: A Love So Dangerous is the first in a three part series. It is a full-length novel that ends in a cliffhanger. It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.
A Love So Dangerous is the first of a three-part series from one of my favorite, must-read authors, Lili Valente. She has given us a taste into the journey of an unexpected love between Caitlin and Gabe, and in her usual style, has given us a story that will not only pull at your heart, but it will also have you hanging on the edge of your chair with moments of suspense and danger.
Caitlin is living a difficult life dropping out of school to raise her three brothers and her niece because they cannot count on their alcoholic father who doesn’t work and spends money faster than she can earn it, and an absent mother and sister who have both deserted them. She is forced to work two jobs to support her family and is always struggling with money problems. On the night of her 20th birthday, Caitlin decides to take the night off from her worries and responsibilities and when she unexpectedly runs into Gabe, they feel an immediate connection. Their one night together ultimately leads to a bit of danger, not to mention an unexpected hot and steamy encounter which overwhelms them both.
Although they agree to keep their relationship simple, limited to one summer together, they both quickly become aware of the deep feelings they are developing for one another. From the beginning, we get a feel for Gabe’s almost immediate need to protect Caitlin, not only from their shenanigans, but also from anyone who he feels does not have her best interests in mind. And not only does Ms. Valente give us some hot, sensual moments, she also writes the most loving and beautifully tender scenes and some heartbreaking ones as well.
As I continued turning the final pages, all I could think was “No! No! Don’t do this to me!” But as she had forewarned, Ms. Valente left me hanging wondering what will happen next. I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2 with the continuation of this series and hopefully answering the questions Ms. Valente has left in my mind.
These days you can find her writing in a tent beside the sea, drinking coconut water and thinking delightfully dirty thoughts.
