powerhouse meets the one woman immune to his charm . . .
RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in FEEL ME, Declan, the sexy, driven powerhouse meets the one woman immune to his charm . . .
Declan O’Brien was always driven to take his place among Philly’s elite, working hard for everything he’s earned, including the title of Assistant District Attorney. He’s won seemingly impossible cases, so he’s furious when he’s assigned to lead the one unit he doesn’t want.
Melissa Fenske was born hearing impaired to a neglectful mother, finding solace when she was adopted by a young attorney, now Declan’s boss. As the current Director of Victim Services, Melissa’s livid when Declan is placed in the main unit she oversees. She can’t forget their disastrous first encounter. Or shake how he makes her feel.
Declan considers the assignment another step toward his political aspirations, despite that he can’t get Melissa out of his mind. Melissa sees Declan as egotistical and self-serving, kicking herself for how fast she’s falling for him. Someone as hot, smooth, and perfect as Declan isn’t supposed to want her.
In another situation with any other woman, Declan wouldn’t hesitate to take Melissa to bed. But she is the boss’s daughter, and for once, Declan finds himself wanting more than just a one night stand.
Neither counted on each other. Both just met their match.
I wish I didn’t want to drag my hands along her gorgeous curves or taste that pouty mouth But I do. Just like I want feel her body pressed against mine.
Shit. What the hell is wrong with me? As pissed as I was about being placed in SACU yesterday, I woke up hard this morning. Hard for Melissa. Melissa, who can barely stand being in the same room as me.
My eyes scrunch tight as I try to shake away the dream I had about her. We were at a black tie event, the kind where waiters walk around with silver trays packed with champagne and anyone who’s anyone in politics works the room flexing their egos. I was supposed to give some kind of speech. I opted out, returning my place with Melissa’s hand tight in mine.
We had sex in my living room. I can’t remember ever having a dream this graphic. She lay over my leather ottoman on her hands and knees, the skirt of her black beaded gown hiked up to her waist, my mouth buried against her. I tugged off my jacket and tie, managing to pop open the front of my shirt before I couldn’t take it anymore and shoved my pants and briefs down to my ankles.
In those romance movies women like to watch, my thrusts would have been slow and sweet. But there was nothing slow or sweet about what we did. It was sexy, primal; me grunting hard and her hips circling fast. Her hair fell in messy waves around her heated face as she clamped down, turning her head enough to see me, and show me the sexy way she bites down on her bottom lip.
I wasn’t a gentleman in my dream. I was the epitome of an alpha claiming what belongs to him. She loved it, calling out my name and begging me to go faster.
My problem is, I loved it too. A little too much.
I groan, thinking about how hot she made me and entertaining why she made me so hot. Melissa is different. Curvy hips, round perky ass, with what I’m guessing are some serious double-Ds. I usually date the model types, those who spend more time on their hair, shopping, and make-up and less time on anything that really matters. Why? Because they’re not looking for anything serious, and neither am I.
When I take a long hard look at all the political giants I know, every last one of them has a devoted wife, looking adoringly back at them―standing by them, raising their children, spearheading charities, and working tirelessly on their husbands’ campaigns―usually alongside the skanks their husbands are fucking when they’re not around. I’m not exaggerating. It’s what men of power are almost expected to do. But I swear to Christ, I’m not going to be one of them.
Feel Me is just another reason why Cecy Robson remains one of my favorite writers! She never disappoints, writing with the perfect combination of steam, sweetness, romance, and heart! Her characters are never perfect which is why they always have a special place in my heart. Declan and Melissa are no exception.
Each of them have very different characteristics with the exception of holding their feelings close to their hearts, never letting anyone besides their families close, and the devotion to their jobs. Melissa works hard in the Sexual Victims Unit, her father the DA. But, she has worked hard to get where she is, overcoming a horrible start in life and succeeding despite a hearing disability. She wants to live a good life doing good things and has an affinity for romance novels with shirtless pirates. She’s the complete antithesis of the type of woman Declan usually goes for. He prefers the skinny model type, Melissa has curves. They don’t usually want commitment, and that certainly is not what he’s looking for. His only commitment is to his job as an Assistant DA and his large family. Nevertheless, Melissa gets under his skin. He has naughty, hot dreams about her, even though he thinks she hates him. However, looks can be deceiving as these two are about to find out. They are forced to work together when Melissa’s father has to take a leave of absence. They begin to notice the stolen looks each of them are giving each other. Giving into lust, much less a relationship is a bad idea. Melissa is the daughter of his boss, and Declan realizes she isn’t the type of woman he can run from. Plus, she hates him, right?
As with all of Robson’s books, her characters have many layers to them, and I see each one revealed as I get further into the book. She’s so good at revealing just enough in earlier novels to pique your interest, and then when you get to their books, it’s so good!!!! She always deals with important social issues plaguing our society, such as sexual abuse and domestic abuse, with such sensitivity. She can break your heart, and yet she can put it back together in a better way, just as she does to her characters. I always love diving into the next book because while I’m getting to know new characters, I’m also catching up with ones from earlier books. So, I never have to truly have to say good-bye to them. I’ve purposely left a lot of the plot out because you have to read this gem for yourself. If you haven’t discovered the magic of Cecy Robson, I highly recommend that you do! You won’t regret it!!!!
