This is your typical girl meets man-whore with commitment issues story line. However, there’s the added unique element in the fact that our heroine is dying. Depressing premise? Yes. Amazing story? Hell yes!
What’s it about?
Bailey’s short life may be rendered even shorter if fortune doesn’t turn her wheel. Unfortunately, most of what she needs is out of her control. The one thing she can control is the quantity and quality of her sex life. She dreams of connecting with a dominant male, one who knows how to take what he wants, one who can deliver the kind of illicit sex that will make her feel desired and dirty and totally satisfied.
In spite of the fact that he goes home with a different girl almost every night, Parker is all too happy to give Bailey what she wants. But after he gets a taste of Bailey obsession takes hold. He wants her, and while he’s never been in an exclusive relationship, Bailey has him pondering monogamy. Problem is, Bailey’s not interested. In fact, she goes to great lengths to prevent the development of deep feelings between them. Parker senses a raging tide boiling beneath Bailey’s surface and he intends to find out what she’s hiding. When Bailey’s camouflage is removed, Parker is compelled to make the ultimate sacrifice.
OMG I freakin’ loved this one. Bailey is sort of fulfilling her final bucket list due to her illness. One item she wants to check off is having rough sex with a man who knows what the hell he’s doing, but who also doesn’t treat her like a fragile doll. I mean, who doesn’t have that item on their bucket list? Boy oh boy, does Parker deliver on all accounts! The sexual tension simmering between these two makes it impossible to limit their escapades to just one night. Seriously, love everything we’ve got going on in this sexy, yet emotional read.
Can’t Say Goodbye
I have read many a book where our lead couple tries to limit their emotional connection, and just keep it all about the bumping of their nether regions. This usually has to do with the fact that one of our characters is afraid of love, or is convinced they’re not worthy of finding happiness. Well, in this particular romance read, Bailey has an added reason of trying to avoid the development of her feelings with Parker, and that’s because she doesn’t want to leave him all alone when she eventually passes on. Ugh, I’ve got all the feels going on right now!
As for Parker, he’s always been a wham, bam, thank you ma’am kind of a guy. Establishing a long-term and loving relationship with a woman has never been on his own personal bucket list. Enter Bailey, and he thinks he’s finally found the one woman worth changing his lifestyle for. When he finally discovers the truth about her illness, and that the only woman he’s ever truly loved is dying, it’s simply heartbreaking. Parker will do anything to spend just one more moment with her; Bailey has resigned herself to dying; my eyes aren’t getting watery. I’m not reaching for a tissue. I’m just…there’s something in my eye…oh for the love of God I’m balling here ok! There I said it! You try and read this without getting emotional.
Series: David Family Saga: Bayou Rogues, book 1. I’ll definitely be continuing with this series.
Should you read it? You’ll probably want to keep the tissues handy, just in case. I did feel there was some unnecessary drama brought in towards the end with Bailey’s sister’s ex-husband. You can tell it was intended to set up the next book, but it was kind of like, we already have a dying woman here! No other outside drama needed! Great read though that’s all about taking chances, and living life to the fullest.
Smut Level: Parker is a naughty little boy who likes to give his woman a spanking.
