Protecting her isn’t an option. It’s a requirement.
Badger finally got Rosie in his bed, but in order to keep her there, he has to figure out how to save her life.
After her drug-running husband gets himself killed, Rosie Santini figures Phoenix is a fine place to get a fresh start. Deuce’s strip club isn’t too fresh, but the money’s easy. As she works the pole, the only gaze she can’t ignore belongs to the club’s head bouncer, Badger Baxter. But Rosie’s seen her fair share of tall, dark, and dangerous, and no way is she heading down that road. Not even for a hot hunk of muscle like Badger.
When he’s not bounty hunting, Badger runs security at Deuce’s. Rosie should be just another piece of fresh meat in the club’s stable of pole jockeys, but all her sexy parts add up to a ride Badger would like to test drive. Trouble is, Badger likes his women submissive, but not broken. She’s definitely got baggage he wants no part of. But when her husband’s killer shows up looking for stolen cash, she fits naturally under his protection—and it isn’t long before she’s hooked deep into his heart.
So deep, losing her now would make him bleed in more ways than one.
Warning: This book contains violent situations due to physical altercations and gunfire. Be on the look out for D/s sexual play, which may cause drooling and might have you reaching for the nearest man or battery operated boyfriend.
What can I say that I haven’t said before when it comes to praising Dorothy Shaw?
First, girl can write a wicked hot alpha like no other. And Badger is true to that description. Badger is bounty hunter by day, Bouncer/bar back/bodyguard/biker/sex god by night…or Day…or really whenever 😉 He meet’s Rosie when she waltz’s into his club looking for a job. But he has one rule, no strippers. Only there is more to Rosie than meets the eye, and try as he may, he just can’t help his feelings.
Rosie is starting over/kinda on the run/trying to build a new life. She has to fall back on her dancing days when she is unable to find any other form of employment. I liked Rosie for the most part. She was, for the most part, likable. Not too strong, not to weak…but bendable to Badger’s will (in the bedroom). She find’s something in Badger that she never knew she wanted, besides the fact that he’s just a sexy as hell biker guy 😉
These two are forced together when Rosie’s past shows up in her present. And true to his alpha protective nature, Badger just takes over, tells her how it is and how it’s gonna be. Sure she “tries” to fight him on it, but why bother Rosie? You know you love it when he’s that way 😉
And Super hot/steamy sex scenes? Oh yeah….there’s plenty a’that in this book. And I loved it! 😉
