Love like this never hurt so good.
New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. For years he’s lost himself in his writing career, but now he’s ready to get back to his rebel-boy roots. While restoring a motorcycle at Stone’s Auto Service, he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. She’s a shock to the system for the romance writer who doesn’t remember a damn thing about wooing a woman.
Cool-as-ice, Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. He knows love has no guarantees.
Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own. The truth about her past reopens Nicky’s raw wounds and awakens a ghost he never laid to rest. He doesn’t know how to have Cat, and now he can’t trust her. Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
I absolutely loved Stone: At Your Service. I only liked Love: In the Fast Lane. I know I shouldn’t compare books, but it’s kind of difficult not to. The funniest parts of this book were when Nick and Josh were together…just like in the first book. When it comes to Nick and Cat everything is sooo intense. They are like two sticks of dynamite and you can’t help but wonder which will explode first.
“Ripe curves, long legs. Fiery as fuck, cold as ice.”
Gotta love Nick, it’s kind of hard not to, but he has secrets that he’s carried entirely too long and ones that will break him if he lets them. Cat has her stream of secrets too and hers only serve to explain why she’s as cold as she is. Neither can handle the others baggage and when push comes to shove neither will be left standing.
“I begged to differ. What I had wasn’t a little infatuation. It was full on, getting the shakes addiction at this point.”
But as all good love stories go…walls are meant to be broken down, pasts are meant to be conquered, and love will reign true. However, the road through and to that is so bumpy you’ll need a tank to navigate.
“I don’t expect you to call me anything but Nick or Nicky or Oh God.”
I did love the characters and how freely they interact with each other. The plot is darker than its predecessor, but that doesn’t take away from its allure. And if you read book one you definitely have to read this one.
“Cat stepped away. I sat, riveted. Unable to move, unable to speak. And hell, I was fast on the way to forgetting how to frigging breathe.”
My Favorite Quote: This was from the Bachelor Party…
“Aren’t you the stud about to get married?” she purred as she leaned over him.
“Yeah, but I’m not about to go there. Leelee would castrate me then feed my tackle to her fuckin’ cat.”
My Favorite Moments: I absolutely loved every time Nick ran into Cat’s brothers. They’re not exactly words kind of guys.
