TAKEN BY STORM
Leilani’s plan was simple: Return for her father’s wedding, housesit for the happy couple while they went on their honeymoon, then get the hell outta dodge. She’d thought the worst thing would be returning to the town she grew up in (and despised). She was wrong.
A flashflood hits the small town, stranding Firefighter, Ryan, and a few strangers at the local bar. Worst of all, Leilani, his old high school rival – and last night’s scorching one-night-stand – is one of the people stuck in the bar. With waters rising, they need to stick together and wait for rescue.
The power grid’s knocked out, and cell phones aren’t working. When the others panic and leave, Leilani and Ryan are left alone in the dark. Fortunately, words aren’t necessary to keep the former rivals warm. But when they’re forced to leave their refuge, they must cooperate to navigate the flood ravaged town and reach safety.
Rising waters bring them closer together. Rising tempers might tear them apart.
Tamara Mataya is currently a librarian; she lurked there for so long recommending books to patrons and shushing people, that she suspects they only hired her so it would be less creepy. Now she’s armed with a name tag, and a thin veneer of credibility. She’s also a musician with synaesthesia – which isn't an issue until someone plays a wrong note, which makes her want to squirm inside out. It makes for a good live show.
MY LITTLE REVIEW:
RYAN BENTON IS MINE. Move along.
Stubborn MCs. CHECK.
Old feelings, refusing to remain hidden. CHECK!
Smoldering hero. CHECK!
DID I MENTION FIREMEN? *grin*
I think we can all agree that Tamara Mataya knows how to write a damn good sex scene, but, more than that, she knows how to weave emotions and flaws into the sexual encounters between her characters, bringing so much more to the erotic romance she writes.
This book won't disappoint.
