Lachlan Downy was a lover, not a fighter.
Okay, he wouldn't lie, he was a fighter, too. But nobody had to know that. Especially not Memphis Tennessee Conner and her stuffy attitude when it came to cops and ‘men like him.’
Memphis knew cops. Her daddy was a cop. He was also the president of a motorcycle club. Needless to say, he’s about as alpha as they come, and she’s tired of overbearing men who think they know how to run her life better than she does.
So when Downy comes into her life running his smooth talking mouth, she realizes that she’ll have to stand strong against his pretty words and promises to give her what she needs.
Downy is determined, though.
He’s the hostage negotiator for KPD SWAT, and he’s never met a person, man or woman, he couldn't talk around into his way of thinking.
Although, Memphis is about to show him just how much he miscalculated.
Seems Downy may not be as smooth as he thought, and Memphis is just the girl to show him the error of his ways.
Wow. That was, I think, one of the best LLV books I think I've read yet. To me, it seems like her writing is just getting better and better. You can definitely see the progress she's made since the first books she released.
I think she did a really great job with this book, characters, story line, and series. I love the scenario in which our two characters meet and their relationship begins. I mean, a wall. Huh. And I love the way she ties our new characters into the previous books she's written. Now, Daddy. Daddy motorcycle man. I have something's on my mind about this. Unmmmm boundaries.
We need boundaries mr scary biker man. They need respected. It was the one thing I wish we could have focused a little more on. I didn't want her to cave and forgive him. I wanted her to stand strong. Even though, it did pay off in the end and help. Still, just no. I also really liked how LLV wrote the FaceTime aspect in. I thought that was interesting and I don't know I've seen that before in a book.
I do think maybe our heroin has a target on her back with dogs though. Maybe that attack aspect happened a little too much. The only small complaint I had was that Downy said he was a Dom and needed a sub, and Memphis really wasn't one. That part was glided over and he was more of just a strong alpha. But, I think it may have helped if they discussed it, and he explained every relationship in D/s is different. And I really don't like how he pushed her out when he needed space. I wanted to crawl in my kindle and smack him.
Again, with all that said, I think this is a strong book that stands on its own. It definitely shows growth for LLV and such a cute story for Memphis and Downy. I am such a sucker for the way LLV writes her men and their heroines. I love how each one is strong on their own in some way, shape for form. Then they find their man, and the man finds their woman, and they compliment each other and support them when they need them the most. They become such a stronger cohesive unit as a couple.
I gave it 4.5 stars
