CeeCee

 

When I was a little girl, I’d inherited the take charge attitude from my mom. Then destiny handed me a boy who was doomed from birth. But as soon as he landed in my house surrounded by my family, I vowed to strike that doom and build his fate, one little brick at a time. My devotion to him was unhinged. He didn’t have to say a word to me to let me know where his mind was. It just took one look and I knew exactly what he needed.
The more I pushed him to be better, the more he grew until he started pushing away.
Star-crossed is what my parents said we were. Destined to be doomed.
Dante would never accept me as his destiny as long as he felt loyalty to my parents for enriching his life to never push the boundaries.
Dante
My life was a whirl of disappointments until my mother passed and I was welcomed into a loving home who accepted me for who I was—the little boy with a chip on his shoulder and angry at the world.
CeeCee became the light at the end of a dark and dingy tunnel. She helped me realize that I could change the direction of path in life just by contributing in little ways. She didn’t want to change me completely. She just wanted me to know that it didn’t matter my past because my future was a blank slate ready for me to rewrite.
My devotion to her was fierce and unrelenting until my need for her changed and felt criminal. To protect her from myself, I backed away. I hid my true feelings. I made her believe that she was forbidden.
I accepted that until we were older and my needs and wants couldn’t be hidden anymore.
We were star-crossed because I put us there. Now, it’s time to make her realize that my devotion to her isn’t illicit, but it’s gratifying.
This is a standalone book and doesn’t need to be read within the series, but for a better understanding of circumstances, Unchaste Fate can help fill in the blanks. This book is meant for an audience 18 and older. There are some scenes that may not be suitable for some readers.

Series: Oh Tequila Series #3
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: June 19, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
I should have known this would happen…
 
Nothing about my fraternity was ever simple. Parties, tequila – tons of tequila – and wild souvenirs from our kind of crazy.
 
Never, and I do mean never, did I expect my brother’s girl to target me in a midnight prank. A prank that backfired and left me squealing in pain.
 
Have you ever seen those shows, the ones that say the “dirty deed” sent you to the ER? Well, I went to the ER, and yes, my manhood was involved. Let me just say I gained absolutely no pleasure from it. Unless, of course, you consider that sweet nurse who treated me.
The problem? She hated me…and I had no idea why, but I wasn’t willing to let her walk away until I figured it out.
Emelie was feisty, and I’d never felt the type of excitement I did after spending only five seconds in her line of fire. I was gonna enjoy this…way more than I should, and I knew it.
 
She saw, she conquered, and I was defeated. 
All it took was just one touch, and oh, what a ride it was.

BOOK RELEASE & REVIEW!!! ~ Only With You by Nicole McLaughlin

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

The men in Nicole McLaughlin’s Man Enough series are tough Alphas devoted to serving their country and the women who love them.

National Guardsman Aiden King has been attracted to Hannah Walters for a while, but he never made a move because of her close relationship with his best friend. But when circumstances change, Aiden is surprised when his friend gives his blessing. Problem is, there’s a reason he’s still alone after all these years, and as much as he wants her, that secret keeps him from acting on his desires.

Hannah has finally decided to wait for the kind of love you read about in books and see in movies. After her failed engagement, Aiden’s unassuming support has become a touchstone for Hannah. It soon becomes apparent that he may be exactly the kind of man she’s been looking for. But the closer they become, the more he keeps her at arm’s length.

When Aiden suggests a road trip to take Hannah’s mind off her troubles, the two of them go on a journey neither one expected. She just hopes that the final destination is them together for good.

When I first started reading Only With You I thought this was going to be one of those weird stories where the friends are overly involved in each other’s lives to create unnecessary drama.

I’m glad that I was wrong.

We first meet Hannah and she’s feeling low because not only has her twin sister fallen in love with her very best friend, but she was painfully single after ending an engagement that just wasn’t right. She was swearing off men and working on herself, something every woman of a certain age has done in the aftermath of a big break up. And wouldn’t you know that’s just when she finds the right guy!

Aiden is…a peach. He’s handsome and quiet and kind of brooding but I wouldn’t call him a bad boy. He thinks he’s a bad man but as we learn throughout Only With You that he’s actually the best type of man.

Watching their friendship slowly develop into something more was beautiful and fun and sometimes hilarious because our girl Hannah is a talker with a capital T. It takes some time for them to actually get together and there is plenty of self-created drama to keep them apart but not enough hat it becomes ridiculous and overwrought.

Nicole McLaughlin’s story was fun and engaging and I had a good time reading it from start to finish.
