Review

Heat Level: SCORCHING HOT!!
I have to say that I was trying to find something negative in this story because it is difficult for me to give an adult contemporary story 5 stars. It happens with YA’s but Adult? That is very rare. There is always something I absolutely don’t like but with this one? I couldn’t find a negative thing.

I started with Mya—a woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind whenever she wants and is the rebel of the three triplets. She works as a bartender at Dukes & Duchess and she has sworn off guys, thanks to daddy dearest, getting married to someone 6 months after burying Mya’s mom. Kelsey, her best friend and coworker, tells Mya she needs to have fun and hook up with someone fast.

Maybe Kelsey’s right. Maybe a fling could help take my mind off of things. Operation Fling Finder will be in full effect on Friday. And there’s no stressful situation that a hot man and a cold drink can’t solve.

Colton Davis arrives at Dukes & Duchess to celebrate his nephew’s birthday party and his eyes set on a beautiful bartender. He waits for his turn at the bar. The flirting starts immediately and the chemistry between them is palpable to everyone around them. Unfortunately, Nicks, Mya’s boss calls for her to return to work and …

Magic was happening with Colton Davis. Sexy, chemistry-filled, sexually compatible, get-me-out-of-my-months-long-sexual-draught magic was happening … And I was just cock-blocked…for a tampon!

Colton returns the next night in hopes to see Mya at work and when they meet again, they go out to eat and give in to their needs. Mya spends the night and she doesn’t like what that means so she leaves. Colton isn’t a man that gives up easily so he goes after Mya and Mya starts opening up to Colton until she realizes she is way too deep.

“What does ‘Imitation makes you who they are; Individuality makes you who you are’ mean to you?”

“It was the last thing my mother told me…before she passed away.”

Mya has commitment issues and, at first, I wanted to dislike her. But let’s face it. Her male example failed entirely and she truly believed that men were like that, as well. That’s why I couldn’t dislike Mya. It is very understandable what she went through and I would have done the same thing, guard my heart.

Colton is the definition of sex…I am not kidding. The guy is handsome and His voice rich and textured like music. He is very confident in himself and he knows what he wants: Mya. Nothing will stop him from having her. Colton is a very nice guy and very wild in bed. Two perfect combinations that a woman wants, am I right, ladies?

Colton and Mya remind me of my boyfriend and I—neither my boyfriend and I nor Colton and Mya wanted a relationship. I like their relationship because I related to them immensely. Colton adores Mya, even when he knows Mya doesn’t want anything serious. And I am sad to admit, that happened with me too, until I finally admitted my feelings.

“I got your message and I heard you. I heard it in your voice,” I read quietly. “So no I’m not going to chase you… But I’m not going to give up on you either. But when you’re ready to admit it, know that I feel the same way.”

I am very positive Colton and Mya’s love for each other will never fade, whether they are together or not. Their love is great and amazing and ADDICTING! My heart was racing for the majority of the book! Plus, I read it in an hour and a half. I couldn’t put it down!

About Danielle Allen

I am a married event planner and life coach. My awesome friends and family and my amazing husband make my life sweet. I love to have fun and enjoy the life I’ve been blessed with. I love shopping and football with equal fervor. I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read and I enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression.

With degrees in psychology, human services, and marriage and family counseling, I have a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit of happiness. As an author, I combine an active imagination and life experiences to create stories that are easily relatable and intentionally intriguing. I want to offer you a peek into someone else’s life and for you to get lost in their story, their trials, their triumphs. My ultimate goal is to create a character or a story that stays with you long after you’ve put the book down.

So in a nutshell: I plan. I teach. I read. I write. I watch. I critique. I shop. I play. I love.

To know me is to love me.
