Praise for Hunter
Goodreads Review - “This book made me laugh, cry, cringe, and sit on the edge of my seat. If you like romance books with dirty sex and a bit of mystery, then this is the book for you.”
Goodreads Review - “I have to say that I absolutely loved this book.”
Goodreads Review - “I honestly hope this author never suffers with writer's block. Her ideas and the conversation between these men are awesome.”
Ahh this one got me again! Hunter was a great novel. It, once again, stole all my attention and kept me up far too late. I mean one more chapter turned into finishing the entire book. So there is that. Hunter has a bit of mystery much like Irish, but the mystery is different in this one. There is also heat and romance, but a lot more conflict in this one. This is a stand-alone in a series. I have only read one other in the series, but I felt its not a requirement to read all the rest, even though I want to.
So Hunter begins where Irish left off. So it might be helpful to read Irish, but they catch you up pretty quickly. Hunter and Lucy have had what you might call relations, but it never equaled a relationship. When an event occurs making Hunter question his feelings, things change. At least for Hunter they do. Can he convince Lucy to take a chance or will he end up losing her in the end?
Lucy is funny. She is strong willed and stubborn, but I actually love that about her. She sticks to her guns and is trying to be independent and live life for herself. You can’t fault a girl for that. Hunter is a jerk at times, but I think he really means well. I love his alpha personality and dominate ways, but I can see how frustrating they can be as well. I loved his character.
The heat between these two is there as it has been since the last book I read in the series. There is an obvious attraction seeing as they have slept together in the past, as noted in the book. What I think I love most is watching this attraction slowly simmer until it is turned into something more. You know they say you can’t watch a pot of water boil. You can’t help but watch these two combust.
I liked the writing style of this book. It is told from dual point of views. The pace is steady. I liked all the anticipation in the book. Also, talk about surprise freaking ending. Like holy heck the author had me so thrown off. I really didn’t know what to think. I really enjoyed this book.
Overall, I am happy with this book. Even though it made me lost sleep, it also left me feeling satisfied. This book made me laugh, cry, cringe, and sit on the edge of my seat. If you like romance books with dirty sex and a bit of mystery, then this is the book for you. I cannot wait to see where the author takes us next. I plan to go back and read the others as well.

I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

I was lifting weights in the training center with Sinner, Cazzo, Burg, and Chance a few days later. I was sweating like crazy in more than one place and it was f@$king uncomfortable. The moisture was making my boxers rub against my freshly waxed skin, making it itch like crazy. I set down the weights and tried to discreetly itch the irritated skin.
Sinner caught me and quirked an eyebrow. “Jock itch?”
“No.” I turned away and itched at the skin again. It f$%king burned. There was no way I was ever getting a wax again.
Sinner walked over and put his hand on my shoulder. “Dude, it’s not really cool to itch yourself in a room full of men.”
I looked at his my shoulder where his hand was and raised an eyebrow. He pulled back suddenly as if he had been burned.
“No,” I almost yelled.
“Dude, if you have pubic lice, you need to get the f#$k out of here.”
Cazzo, Burg, and Chance turned and looked at me warily. I saw Chance’s eyes drop to my crotch for just a moment.
“I don’t f#$king have pubic lice.”
“Then why the hell are you scratching so much?” Sinner asked.
What the hell. Maybe one of them knew what to do. “I was following Lucy, trying to run into her, you know, like we talked about. I wasn’t watching where she was headed and I followed her into the spa.”
Sinner grinned, “First time, huh?”
“First time what?” Cazzo asked.
“Pappy, please tell me that you just did some manscaping,” Burg pleaded.
“They did something called a Hollywood.”
Sinner started laughing hysterically and Burg cringed. “What?” Chance asked. “What the hell is a Hollywood?”
“They waxed every inch of him,” Sinner laughed.
“Why would you do that?” Chance asked.
“F$%king Maggie. She was there for a spa day with Claire and Lucy. She insinuated that I was there to make an appointment for a girlfriend and I didn’t want Lucy to think I was sending another woman to the spa.”
“So you put hot wax on your junk instead?” Cazzo asked.
“I didn’t know they were going to do all that. I thought it would just be a little touch up.”
“But why did it hurt so bad?” Sinner asked. “I’ve done it, but I’ve never itched like that,” he said, pointing to my crotch.
“I have a lot of hair. I usually just trim, but the woman said it was very thick.”
“Still,” Burg shook his head. “It shouldn’t be that bad. Drop your pants.”
“What? I’m not dropping my pants.”
Sinner rolled his eyes. “We’re all men. We’ve all seen a penis before. Do you want help or not?”
I looked at all of them and decided what the hell. What could it hurt? When I pulled my shorts down, they all cringed. Sinner let out a hissing noise and Chance covered his own crotch like he would somehow catch the itching.
“That looks painful,” Cazzo said, turning to Sinner. “Is that normal?”
“That most definitely is not normal. Did you use the cream?”
“What f$%king cream?”
Sinner shook his head. “You have to use the cream. I bet it feels like it’s on fire right now.”
