Montana Delray is the most laid back of the popular rock band, FireNine. He’s goofy, charming, blatantly honest, talented, a massive flirt, and extremely handsome. The girls literally throw themselves at him, and he accepts it. He loves the attention. The fame. The parties. His single life.
With so many women to choose from, it’s not in his nature to chase after just one, but when Lauren Harkin enters his life, that all changes.
Lauren is smart, sexy, confident, and knows exactly how to get under his skin… and although he hates to admit it, he loves it. He wants her in every way possible, but she doesn’t want anything to do with him. Famous FireNine rocker, Delray isn’t the kind of guy Lauren needs to bring into her life. After having her emotions tampered with repeatedly, she refuses to give into someone who will most likely take her for granted and make things worse.
But with much effort and some sexual manipulation, Montana and Lauren come to an agreement neither of them can resist. As their fling carries on, though, everything intensifies, and once they realize it true fear sets in.
Soon they come to the realization that they care for one another more than intended, and they both know caring for someone other than themselves means opening their hearts.
The reality they face with each other is totally unexpected and becomes their biggest fear… and neither of them is ready for it.
I pressed the button to my floor and it opened several seconds later. Silence crept between us but it wasn’t an uncomfortable one. It was sort of… nice. After taking nearly decades to find the hotel key in my pockets, I stuffed it into the lock of the door and stumbled inside, laughing at my own idiocy.
She followed in behind me, and I flipped the light switch. A dim light illuminated above her head and she smiled. “Well… you’re here,” she breathed.
“I am,” I said.
“Do you… need anything?”
“Nope…”I paused. “Well maybe just for you to stay.”
She let out a girlish giggle. “Montana, you know I can’t stay.”
“Why not?” I asked, stepping in.
She dared a step as well, angling her head and locking eyes with me. Bringing her hand up, she ran it across my cheek and a faint smile appeared on her lips. “Because it would be wrong of me to sleep with you.”
My dick pulsed. Her voice was smooth and seductive. It was sexy as hell with that accent. “Why would it be wrong?”
“It’s a long story. Just know it would be.”
“Don’t beat around the bush, Princess.”
She smirked. “I’m not. Maybe when you’re sober…”
I laughed, throwing my head back. “I guess that’s never then.”
“Well, then I guess we’ll never have that experience, huh?” She was teasing the hell out of me. Her voice. Her body... so warm and close. Fuck.
What made it worse was how she turned around and walked away, swinging her plump ass in those tight blue jeans. “I’ll see you tomorrow. Big show, right?”
“Yes,” I whispered. I couldn’t stop staring.
“Good…”She opened the door.
“Wait,” I called before she could make it out.
She lifted both brows, glancing over her shoulder. “Yeah?”
I walked towards her, licking my lips. “Tell me your name. I need to know it.”
She lowered her head, biting a smile. “If I tell you my name will you take it easy for the rest of the night?”
“I will… for you, Princess.”
She paused, batting her mascaraed eyelashes while running her eyes up and down the length of my body. Her smoky eyes then met mine, she stepped back, and a warm hand pressed against my chest. She stood on the toes of her high-heels and whispered, “Lauren Harkin. Don’t forget it,” she murmured. “Because if you do, I won’t tell you my name again… you’ll just have to suffer with not knowing the name of the woman that, in every way, intrigues you.”
My eyes stretched.
And she smirked.
And it was right there, in that moment, when she had me. It was in that moment when I realized I had to have her. I had to get her up under me. I had to dick her down at least once. She was begging for it, and my body wasn’t denying it. I wanted her and I wanted her something serious.
I loved Montana in the other FireNine books! I was so excited when I found out he would have his own book! Of course, I had hoped that his book would live up to the way I had built him up in my mind… and it did!!! You truly can’t help but fall further in love with Montana Delray!
Montana has always been a ladies’ man and never wanted a committed relationship. He never needed to worry about one because he never spent more than one night with a woman. He could also get pretty much any woman he wanted…. Except for one. There was something about the one that turned him down that stuck into his head.
Lauren knew how Montana was and the temptation finally became too much for her. She wanted to experience him…. And experience she did!!!! She invited him to come and spend a week with her and it was ONE HOT WEEK! Although, there was a little crazy mixed in because of emotions. Hot passion became emotions and feelings that neither of them was expecting. It was just supposed to be a week of fun. But, Lauren is hiding a secret….. and my heart broke for Montana when the truth was revealed. He had so many trust issues already that he didn’t/couldn’t figure out how to handle it.
“Something happened to me a week ago. Something I thought I’d never experience a day in my life. My heart broke. It broke into tiny, fragile little pieces.”I loved how unsure both Lauren and Montana were about their ‘relationship’. I think their insecurities helped them bond and build a stronger foundation. Will their foundation be enough to withstand the truth that comes crashing down at their feet?
The writing was wonderful and the story line didn’t leave you bored. There was enough passion and fun moments to keep you satisfied. Thank you Shanora Williams for letting me fall even more in love with the FireNine boys!
