A good reason to be bad...
Librarian Sophie Heyer has walked the straight and narrow her entire life to make up for her mother's mistakes. But in tiny Jackson Hole, Wyoming, juicy gossip doesn't just fade away. Falling hard for the sexiest biker who's ever ridden into town would undo everything she's worked for. And to add insult to injury, the alluring stranger is none other than Alex Bishop--the son of the man Sophie's mother abandoned her family for. He may be temptation on wheels, but Sophie's not looking for trouble!
Maybe Sophie's buttoned-up facade fools some, but Alex knows a naughty smile when he sees one. Despite their parents' checkered pasts, he's willing to take some risks to find out the truth about the town librarian. He figures a little fling might be just the ticket to get his mind off his own family drama. But what he finds underneath Sophie's prim demeanor might change his world in ways he never expected.
Sophie Heyer has had to live with the shame of her mother’s ill-fated tryst since she was five-years old. She leads a double life, a nice, conservative librarian on the outside and a naughty girl underneath. When she meets biker Alex Bishop, he takes her for a ride on the wild side and she gives as good as she gets.
See, Alex is the son of the man Sophie’s mother ran off with years ago. And, Alex’s mother never misses an opportunity to confront Sophie in public as she’s the spitting image of her mother. Neither Alex or Sophie wants whatever it is between them made public for obvious reasons. And, he’s only home (for the first time in years) for a few days.
What I enjoyed
Both of these characters are refreshing. Sophie loves how her nice girl looks masks her wild side. She’s proud of the contradiction she presents and Alex appreciates everything about her. He’s deliberately rough around the edges though he’s highly educated with an exciting career. I loved how they were comfortable in their skin even though they couldn’t have been more inept in how they managed relationships…except theirs!
The bottom line
This is an extremely interesting story with two very interesting people at the center. Their romance is erotic, exciting and different. The contrasts are cleverly presented with some very inventive scenes. The family issues just add more texture to Sophie and Alex, individually and as a couple. The ending is just perfect. I’m loving this series.
Sexual Content: Steamy details.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
