#3 Hawthorne's Calm
I had a chance to review this one, and I'm glad that I did. This book did not disappoint when your trying to find an alpha-male. But guess what you get two alph's - two that are cousins and let me phrase that... two that are MMA fighters.. *swoon*
The story is about a girl Livie who had a hard way in life, an alcoholic mother, the one person who should be a constant in her life- who taught her nothing but pain. Yes Livie is a cutter, but the way she grew up this was her only way to cope with her anxiety and pain. Her father was a rich to do guy but loved his daughter more than life itself and she never when without- Which makes wonder why did he leave her in a situation that she had become accustom to? That part made me think.
The one thing that Livie did know how to do was physically survive- she loved the world of MMA fighting, trained with the best and fought through her pained past by enforcing the skills she could control. This is when we meet Lawrence but as we know him as Law. A ex-fighter who opened his doors to her for a job in his brand new martial arts studio. At first you wonder if its one of those love at first site type of relationships but DeOlmos keeps you wondering.
Over all without giving you the detailed review of the events that happened, this book is great. She gave you a rollercoaster of events, and having 3 POV was awesome.. you saw all aspects of the story. This book does have a cliff hanger but guess what the other two books in the series are already out.. so start digging in and get your swoon on with Ocean and Law!
I walked into the plane’s restroom and leaned my back against the door. I started thinking about the shit I used to do with random chicks on my flights when I was competing. I pretty much fucked them anywhere and everywhere I wanted, but this time they weren’t the ones I was thinking about bending over. It was Liv.
Seeing her pissed and wanting to beat the crap out of that girl made my dick rock hard. I whipped out my hard dick and forced myself to take a piss. It hurt like a bitch, but I couldn’t go back out there with a hard on.
I washed my hands and then my face with cold water. I took several deep breaths before opening the door and when I did, the chubby flight attendant was standing there.
I looked up and Liv had her headphones back on.
“You positive I can’t help you?”
“Listen. I appreciate it, but if you don’t want my girl to get up and sweep the isle with you, I suggest you back off.”
The expression on her face would have made me feel bad before, but now I didn’t give two shits. She got my point and stormed off. When she walked passed my seat she slapped the back of it intentionally and I saw Liv’s head snap in her direction. She slowly removed her headphones and froze. The flight attendant looked over her shoulder at Liv and rolled her eyes.
Oh shit… Liv was getting up!
I just about ran back to my seat, catching her by her belt and pulling her back.
“Let go,” she hissed at me between her teeth.
I pulled her closer. “I have to use the bathroom. Let me go.”
“Yeah…okay, I’m not Law baby.”
She narrowed her smoky eyes at me and twisted herself back in her seat. With her arms folded across those perky ass breasts, she stared at the back of the flight attendant’s head.
I wanted to laugh because she was behaving the same way I would have if it were the other way around and that meant something. It meant she claimed me for herself as I did to her. Even if she couldn’t admit to it now, I knew she did.
To see how far I could go with her, I slipped my hand between her thighs and nestled it close to her pussy. I wrapped my thumb around palming her thigh and used it to message the side of her thigh.
She slowly arched her back into the seat, pulling my hand in deeper letting me feel the heat radiating out of her body.
She uncrossed her arms and let them fall to her sides. I turned my head and looked down at her. Her breathing was slow and steady.
I leaned in closer and whispered in her ear, “Give me your phone, baby.”
She calmly reached into her back pocket, careful not to dislodge my hand and passed me her phone. I took it with my free hand.I loved the way she obeyed my commands. Without a word… without a fight.
My name is Melissa De Olmos, it's quite a mouth-full but that's me. I live in the sunny, tropical and extremely too tranquil city of Palm Bay, Florida with my two lovely crazies’ ages six and three. I could say that writing novels has been a passion that I've always pursued but I can't. Writing for me has always been my own secret escape into a land of wonders, opportunities, timeless loves and so much trouble that I sometimes wonder if I need medication for the stories that pop into my head. I am in love--no-- I am obsessed with everything mystical, fantasy, true to a reader’s heart, and fiction. It has been an enormous pleasure and indescribable experience sharing my Oceans Series with the world and I cannot wait to fill this world with more crazy for you awesome people to devour.
