A new sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.
Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends.
Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.
The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotional and sexually charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

What a sweet, sexy, emotional read! I was completely enthralled with the book and with Bear and Crystal from the very beginning. Bear has been waiting a long time to make Crystal his, and just when he thinks he’s making progress, she pulls back. But, that won’t stop Bear once he has made his mind up. What he doesn’t know is Crystal will have to face her painful past if he has any hopes of making himself a part of her future.
Both Crystal and Bear were complex characters. On the surface, they appear to be something else entirely than what they truly are…deep down. At first glance, Bear looks like an intimidating, sexy, smooth talking womanizer. That is so far from who he really is. Yes, he’s totally sexy and could talk any woman into dropping her panties with just his hello, but OMG, this man has the best heart. He loves children, his friends, and family. He’s loyal, and he’s responsible, taking over many responsibilities for his family after his father suffered a stroke. I LOVED the fact that once he made up his mind, there was no changing it. Luckily for Crystal, that means making her his!!!!
Crystal puts on a façade that she wants people to believe. She’s comes across as this sexy, independent, and “experienced” woman. As with Bear, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, she’s independent and tough. But, she had to adopt this attitude to survive. In her mind, that is why she has to continue pushing Bear away. He awakens things in her she hasn’t felt in a long time, but he also awakens some dark things from her past that she is afraid if she lets in will completely destroy her. She also doesn’t want to lose Bear’s friendship. He’s been a huge support to her even though he doesn’t necessarily realize how much.
The chemistry between these two was off the charts HOT! What I loved most was Bear’s patience. He knows just how far to push. Their relationship is a slow, hot burn, but once the inevitable happens, it was so worth the wait!!!!
I have plenty of Melissa Foster’s books on my Kindle, but I’m so mad at myself for waiting this long to read something by her. She’s amazing! I love her writing. She made me feel like I was a part of this wonderful group of people. This book was so much more than hot chemistry and romance. It was a somewhat of a fairytale for Crystal. She endured some very dark and painful times, and her prince, Bear, showed up to show her a different life filled with love and loyalty was possible. He gave her the HEA she so richly deserved! I cannot wait for the next book in the series!
