Alright so gist of it is that Laurie and Ethan met 10 years earlier when he was a rookie cop and hauled her drunk, underage ass off a beach and sent her home. Being a bit of a wild child she propositioned him. He was like girl you need to grow up. Check back with me in 10 years. Fast-forward 10 years, lots of time spent keeping her safe over the years, and, well, it's finally time for a throw down of a naughty variety. Hallelujah amen.
Oh gosh. These two. I loved them. They like to push each other's buttons and challenge each other. And holy heck it was fun to watch. He's all sexy sheriff alpha protector, she's still a little wild and stubbornly independent but a hard worker and determined (she owns a bakery). That combo. So so good, yall.
He put the half finished beer on the counter, and retraced his steps to the front door. He'd try the storm-in-an-fuck-an-answer-out-of-her-approach.The sexy. Holyfrackinghell. Since she's been legal Sexy Sheriff has spend a LOT of years sexually frustrated. Poor guy. Poor cock. They've just about been pushed to their limits. lol And woohoo! It was squirm-worthy. Beck heats up the pages. Lordybe.
A hand moved her hair behind her shoulder. "Tell me."The romance was really fun, too. And my favorite type. All these years later he's the one with a proposition for her. She's in a jam, he's in one too. He's like lets pretend we're a couple! Woo! I love those fake romances that so aren't fake romances. lol It was kinda, fun, too, because he's the one who is like I want more and chickie is the one running scared. Always fun to see.
"Tell you what?"
"I spent the better part of a decade watching you, and the best parts of last night inside you. The tough-as-nails act you put on for everyone else doesn't work on me. Tell me what you need."
I think my only complaint, really, would be that I so wanted to see more of the heroine 'on the job'. She's a baker and noms. Yeah I would have liked to see a bit more of that.
All in all, Hard Compromise was sizzling, sensual and full out sexy. I'll be snapping up Becks entire backlist as soon as I can.
Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart.
