Mae has to put her career first. It doesn’t matter that the man she’s going to photograph was the man she almost lost her virginity to or that his looks were so distracting she could barely think straight. He was the reason she’d put her heart and soul into her career in the first place. There’s nothing like being caught drunk, half-naked, and horny in the back of a pickup truck and it had made her swear off alcohol. Mae was a serious photographer.
Jackson had a reputation to uphold, and it meant living on the edge and never sleeping alone. Knowing the name of the buckle-bunny in his bed wasn’t a requirement so long as he remained lucky in the ring. That is, until Mae shows up; the girl that got away.
This is a sweet romance with plenty of ouch moments and not just the ones that require hospital treatments. Mae’s a strong character but Jackson’s lifestyle is hard to comprehend. The steamy scenes are tasteful and amusing as is the humour between the couple making it a great read.
