“You should have on a life jacket.”
“When I kayak or when I ride my motorcycle?” I ask.
He tries not to smile, but he does. “Pissed, huh?”
“Observant, aren’t you?”
“Motorcyclists are twenty-five percent more likely to die and five times more likely to be injured than a passenger in a car,” he says.
“You looked that up just to lecture me, didn’t you?”
“Not the point,” he says. “No more motorcycle.”
Did he really think he could go all alpha male on me? Usually, it would be hot as all-get-out to see a man in control, dominant, but right now alpha equals asshole! Note to self — I should do a blog post on that. Where have all the good alphas gone? “Who do you think you are?” I say, walking away. “You’re not my husband or my father. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t let my father or husband order me around like this.”
His fingers lightly touch my elbow. It isn’t a grab. I barely feel it, and as quickly as he touched me, it’s over. “I’m a doctor. I’ve seen what . . .”
“You’re a gynecologist! You’ve seen what a motorcycle can do to a vagina?”
Oh God, I’m in trouble. He’s got the dirtiest look in his eye. “I’d imagine the vibration would feel pretty damn good.”
I can’t help it and bust out laughing. “You are impossible.”
“And it’s the law to carry a life vest for every person in a kayak,” he says.
“I like order.”
“Ordering people around,” I say.
“Only certain people,” he says.
Don’t ask me why, but the thought of him “ordering” me around made my legs clench together, or maybe it was the mention of vibrations. Either way, the idea of him taking control of my body didn’t sound bad to me at all. It would be nice to not think so damn much all the time and just feel something good for a change.
This book was absolutely amazing!! Such a touching and sometimes heartbreaking, beautiful story of loss and finding the strength to live through the pain and “choose happy.”
Annalyse has suffered the loss of her husband but after years of running from the pain and heartache, she is ready to open herself up to the possibility of finding love again. When she meets her sister’s neighbor, Holt, she recognizes that like her, he has suffered a loss as well. She also sees that he is still not able to face his pain and keeps himself closed off.
Through a series of incidents, Annalyse and Holt keep running into each other and the chemistry is off the charts! They agree to be friends with benefits with only one rule “pleasure only” no drama, no dating and certainly no hearts involved. But sometimes rules get broken and feelings grow.
Can Annalyse and Holt heal each other and “choose happy” together? Read this story and find out!!
I LOVED this book! Both characters are fantastic and I loved getting both of their POVs. I was sucked into this story from the very beginning and was truly sorry to see it end. I experienced so many emotions reading this story, sometimes laughing and other times, crying and I loved every minute of it. Prescott Lane is such a talented author and I love everything I have read by her!! I highly recommend this book to everyone!
