Hearts Are Wild, Book 2
Her dream job waiting for her in Perth, Shaye Adams has thirty days to pack up her life. There’s just one hot piece of unfinished business to take care of before she puts Sydney behind her. Get Cooper Moreland into her bed and out of her system.
Coop couldn’t be happier to be the man burning up Shaye’s bed—except for all her rules. No hooking up at either of their houses. No dating. And definitely no strings. If he could just get her to take off her blinders, she’d see that happiness is waiting for her right here. And he’s not above using every dirty trick—in bed and out—to make the stubborn woman want to stick around.
As Shaye lives out every fantasy she’s ever had about Coop, she realizes it’s easy to hand over her body, but she never bargained for her heart going along for the wild ride. And now her biggest fear is a reality…
Warning: A heroine who thinks reality will never live up to the fantasy—until the hero gets between her sheets.
Dare You To Review:
This book was okay, but quick (82 pages according to Goodreads) and nothing spectacular. Very average. It was enjoyable and a good choice when you have an hour to kill or need something short to read while you’re waiting on an upcoming release.
My main issue is that the whole thing felt very rushed. I love a good novella, but a lot of times there’s a lot of pacing issues. For example, in this book it felt like C.L Parker was trying to cram a full novel’s worth of plot into a novella’s word count. It read like a summary of a book, rather than a book itself.
I did like the chemistry between the two characters and the friends seemed amusing enough that if not for the above points, I would’ve looked at the rest of the series.
About Rhian Cahill:
Rhian Cahill is the alter ego of a stay-at-home mother of four. With motherly duties rapidly dwindling Rhian is able to make use of the fertile imagination she used to keep herself sane for all those years of slavery. Having spent some years living overseas and visiting tropical climates has helped inspire some steamy stories. Multi-published in erotic romance, Rhian, with the help of Mr. Muse, spends her days and nights writing.
When not glued to the keyboard you’ll find her book in hand avoiding any and all housework as much as possible.
