He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marcy with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn't sound like a bad idea... and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and very hot body of her best friend's older brother.
After years of waiting in painful silence, police officer Aaron Robinson finally has Marcy’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marcy he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness…
His to Keep is a quick little novella that has all the right fluff in all the right places. Aaron and Marceline have always wanted each other and one night they get just that. However, Marceline doesn’t want her heart broken like it was before so she pushes Aaron away and asks for just a week together, nothing more and nothing less. It’s a good think Aaron knows what he wants and continues to go after her.
What you get in this book is mostly Aaron and Marcy; you hardly read about Marcy’s daughter or anyone else really. Granted other characters make appearances but the main focus is on the two main characters and you get absorbed into their lives.
