USN Chief Joe Hazard filled all of Ros Prim’s teenaged fantasies, but now she’s an adult with a mission, and no handsome sailor will get in her way. The first in her family to earn a college education, she escaped Birds Gap, the deadly dull, stifling town of her childhood and the scene of her most embarrassing memories. However as principal of BGHS she wants to see every child in town go to college not be forced to chose between working in the mines or risking life and limb in the military.
My first brush with, and after 10 years, Ros Prim’s first look at, Joe Hazard is most definitely NOT a nice one! We meet him giving it to the most odious woman I have met in a book, in a LONG TIME! Joe just so happens to be Ros’ new neighbor AND the man that Ros crushed on in high school. It turns out that Joe had a thing for Ros too, back then; she starred in many of Joe’s “dreams”.
When Joe realizes that he’s living next door to Ros, he makes it his mission to seduce Ros into his bed. Joe comes across as commitment phobic who is only interested in Ros for the mind-blowing sex. And make no mistake; the sex in this story is truly mind-blowing. But as we get to know Joe and see his reaction to a particular situation, the reader comes to see him as misjudged; he’s an Alpha male hottie with a soft center.
When Odette (that ODIOUS woman I mentioned before) tries to come between Ros and Joe’s relationship by ruining Ros’ reputation and destroying Joe’s career, it makes both Ros and Joe realize how much they have come to care for each other.
While this book was relatively short as it was a novella, it was a thoroughly entertaining, truly sexy (and I mean SEXY!) read and I would recommend it to anyone that likes their erotic romance to come with a large serving of dirty-talking Alpha male! I rate this story 4 couples.
