The "emotional, spicy-hot story" (Belle's Book Bag) that propelled Kelsie Leverich to the New York Times best-seller list!
Tattoo artist Ronnie Clark is counting the days until Valentine's Day is over. Ronnie doesn't do romance. She doesn't do flowers or dates, and she sure as hell doesn't do love - not anymore.... Love leads to heartbreak, and she's vowed never to let herself get hurt again.
Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson is home on his mid-tour leave from Iraq, but he only has one thing on his mind - returning to his soldiers to finish leading their mission. He's dedicated to his men and to his country, and he's not interested in getting wrapped up in a distracting relationship - but casual sex, that's a different story. From the moment he sees Ronnie, he wants her. And he agrees to her terms: no romance, no fluff - just passion.
But as their sexual chemistry ignites, the lines of their arrangement get blurry, and Ronnie starts to push Kale away. And when Kale realizes he's found his match in this gorgeous, razor-tongued woman who is hell-bent against love, winning her heart could be the toughest battle he has ever fought.

I do not give a synopsis of the book, just my opinion on the listen. I am not a book critic, just one who loves to read!
I read this after reading her Rush novel and I have to say that I personally enjoyed the Rush novel better. That being said this author has a way of making you feel the gut wrenching feelings her characters depict. You feel the anguish, the raw feelings of hurt and what I think is most difficult to get across love depsite character flaws. This author is talented no doubt and I look forward to reading more of her stories. I presonally preferred the love scenes in Rush .... base sex is not my cup of tea, but overall this book is worth the money or the credit.
When I started this book I wasn't sure I would make it through to the end---I wasn't immediately a fan of the main character Ronnie, and the narrator was kind of grating on my nerves in the voice of Ronnie--but, I hunkered down and listened on! Surprisingly, I enjoyed the story. Ronnie's stank attitude...it was a little over the top and needed a little more vulnerability to make her truly likable, however, Kale on the other hand was a great alpha male that helped make the story more enjoyable. I was totally in love with him by the end, such a catch!
I wouldn't say this is credit worthy, but definitely worth purchasing on sale. Steamy sex and a take charge alpha male that's worthy of each of the 4 stars I'm giving it.
