Finding Kyle was a pretty unique one seeing as it's got a light house keeper for a hero. How fun!
So this quote. The heroine. She's got some geek in her and is constantly quoting movies/dates when they suit. Sometimes at rather, erm, unconventional moments. This one seriously cracked me up.
It was then that I realized we were facing the large mirror on her dresser and Jane was watching us with dark, lust-filled eyes as I rode her hard. It made my balls tighten and the need to come was almost painful. My hand pushed into her long hair and I gripped it hard, and that got her attention. Her glazed eyes slid to look at me in the mirror, and we held each other's gaze for just a brief moment. Then her lips curled upward and a mischievous glint sparkled back at me. She then turned to look back at herself, and, in an impervious voice--while I was still fucking her hard, she said, "Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?"
I came to a dead stop rooted deep within her, and her eyes slowly raised to focus back on me.
She grinned at me and panted, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, 1937. Now get back to business, baby."
And I couldn't help it. I fucking threw my head back and busted out laughing. I laughed so hard that I collapsed on top of Jane, and then rolled us to our sides.
*raises hand* How does one go about finding a Kyle because dayum! he was lickable! I had such a good time with Finding Kyle. A sexy broody hero and a persistent, quirky heroine. A lovely seaside setting. Romance, humor, friendship. A little darkness from the past. It was all so yummy!
Okay so gist is that Kyle was an undercover ATF agent and now he's hiding out playing lighthouse keeper until the motorcycle club case he was working comes to trial. Complete with cute cottage, flowers that need planting, and a nosy neighbor. A sexy artistic neighbor he knows he needs to stay far away from but can't seem to resist.
I really loved Kyle and Jane. Their different personalities. How quirky she was with her addiction to quoting movies and baking skills that would scare you off sweets. And I was totally panting over Kyle and his grumpy, surly ass. It was a hoot watching her try to chip away his dark attitude and his futile resistance before he caved. I loved seeing him bring her out of her shell a little and how she softened him up. They were just cute. And good lord the sexual tension. *fans self* And when things FINALLY go all steamy and sweaty. Gah! Bennett can write one devilishly sexy scene.
Something I found really captivating about this one was Kyle's character. While deep undercover with a motorcycle gang he did some truly horrible things in the name of a greater good and his soul carries the dark smudges from it. I think it's something we easily overlook when thinking about some fictional and real life heroes/heroines who are in our police force or military and I liked that what some have to go through was addressed here to a degree. It was just an interesting element.
My only complaint..dude the cover. It's sexy as all fuck but he's a blonde and then has a nearly shaved head. Erms. Yeah.
All in all, though. Yum! Seriously. YUM! Passionate and full of quirky charm. Finding Kyle hit the spot and left me craving another taste of Bennett's writing.
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…
The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.
Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.
Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.
When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness finally extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?
