Meet the Characters:



Closing the door behind me, I was grateful to be back in my own room. Peeling out of my clothes, I quickly got into the shower. It felt like an oasis, the water caressing my body. Thoughts of Mac and I in bed were coming back to me like rapid fire from a machine gun. These thoughts startled me as my body began to respond to the pictures in my mind. Mac knew his way around a female’s body and it certainly felt as though he had pulled out all the stops with me. When I closed my eyes I could visualize his head between my legs. The memory of it made my insides clench down deep. Then I remembered the culmination of his efforts and my body’s response in a tantalizing orgasm. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced before. I had to push those thoughts out of my head because the whole situation was crazy. We got married, and he didn’t seem to be taken aback by it. In fact, he was calm about the whole thing. Strange reaction for a guy. I felt kind of bad for running out of there like I did, but when I fell on him, things became real—too real. I began remembering in that moment our intimate interaction, and for a split second, I thought about surrendering to my desire for him. Again. Willingly. While sober. If I had, we’d be in bed together, and he’d be doing…

Mac waiting for Nat

Meagan's Review:

Can I tell you how much I love Carlie Sexton. A whole freaking bunch!!! I absolutely fell head over heels in love with this book!!!! Ohh and Mac Carter!! *sigh* This story is about Mac and Natalie and I've been dying to get to know them a little better....well my mind kept straying to Mac, but still I wanted to get to know them a little better since reading the Killer Next Door Series.

Anyways this book starts out with Vegas. And of course you know they say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas........sorta. That and rash drunkenness happens and Mac and Natalie wake up and find out they are married!!! And at first they talk about getting an annulment as soon as they get home, but decide to wait on that because they each like each other and want to see where this could go. Now the interesting thing with this is Natalie up until last night she was a virgin. She wanted to wait until marriage and she did...she was just drunk off her butt.

But as Mac and Natalie try and find their way they decide against telling their friends as there is an upcoming wedding and Nat doesn't want to ruin or take away from that. So when they go back home Mac and Nat start dating and OMG he is the sweetest man. He tries to woo her, but doesn't really try. He's so genuine in his gestures and so sweet that what he does is never over the top or too fake or anything...it's just him wearing his heart on his sleeve. And I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! But as Mac and Nat are dating and getting to know each other and figure out how their lives might fit together. However, what's a good love story without a little drama. Mac's ex....ugggg...so tries to get back into Mac's life and causes issues and then the question becomes how far will she go to get what she wants? WIll Mac and Nat be able to find their way and end up together? Or will fate find a way for something else to be taken from them?

This is a great great great read and I highly recommend it!!!!
