Falling Under Lauren Dane

Falling Under Lauren Dane
 
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance,
My first visit to Twisted steel, and what a fun and sexy read it was.
Duke, one of the TS owners is a real hot lead. He’s full of muscles, tattoos and Southern gentility. He knows how to treat a lady and he’s been wanting an excuse to treat his sexy next door neighbour, Carmella, for two years….Carmella though is cautious, and its clear he needs to tread very very carefully. Duke hasn’t been one for relationships but he knows Carmella is worth more than just a fling, so when they need a new office manager and he knows she needs a new job it’s perfect timing. Its not long before he wears away at her defences, and they’re in the throes of a hot and heavy affair. I adore Carmella, such a sexy lady, she knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to say so!! There’s some very steamy and sensual encounters between them.
She’s carrying a heavy family burden though, being mum to her own mother, whose troubled and flighty, irresponsible, and Carmella has really been looking after her since she was a young child…its tough but she’s managing, and then it gets even tougher…her mum resents her though, isn’t grateful and Duke wonders why she even bothers. His relationship with his family has become very distant over the years. Its clear they both have shadows from their past to overcome if they can move forward together as they want though. Duke has one big issue, one thing he regrets greatly, and when the situation looks to him to be similar he makes a huge mistake, almost catastrophic. I know he meant well, I know he was looking at the issue from the wrong angle but What a Jerk he was and I so felt for Carmella.
I did snigger though at an early typo, and maybe it’ll be corrected by the final version as I have an ARC, but Duke and Carmella are out enjoying a meal together of Lobster and Muscles…I know he’s hot and she wants to lick him all over but…..
I’m looking forward to Micks story, with his two past lovers – a man and a woman…
 
Stars: Four and a half, a hot and sexy read with great characters but not quite a five from me.
ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers
