THIS IS A FULL-LENGTH, STAND-ALONE, ADULT ROMANCE

I have been staring at her for three months. Watching her. Memorizing her.

For ninety-two days, I’ve looked into those lifeless green eyes.

And for ninety-two days she has inspired me in ways I never knew possible. A muse, unbeknownst to her. Motivating me. Encouraging my darkest desires.

I’m a man who knows what he wants. And what I want is the beautiful and broken Holland Howard.

My name is Jensen Payne—photographer, autocrat, lecher, Scopophiliac. I am who I am and I will not—cannot—change.

Val’s Review

All I can say is WOW.

description

This one – and how much I enjoyed it – really took me by surprise.

Quite honestly, I barely skimmed the blurb for this – but I trust Cheryl McIntrye and I was in the mood for something short – so I thought, why not?.

Well, for something so short, it sure packed a massive punch that hit me right in the feels.

The lead female in this book is my favorite kind of female character: calm, self-contained, and uncaring of what other people think.

And the lead male is my favorite kind of male character:
self-contained, confident, and over the top alpha.

So both of these favorites together?

WIN – WIN

And a WIN – WIN additionally paired with good writing and a fast paced, character driven plot?

You guessed it.
