Years have been spent as she kept up the happy façade and not letting anyone get close enough for love.
It’s not until that chance meeting when Tabitha meets her match Carter Northwood.
Here’s a man that’s life has been filled with lies, threats, and tangled webs of disaster. Carter knows that if he takes this chance at true love, the world around him will falter down like a spiral staircase.
 Two hearts mended to form a single beat from the start. A test of trust, infinite love, and a longing for each other’s passion.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say, that reading A.M. Willard book, was awesome. As my son tells me, Straight up AWESOME SAUCE! Her writing is so well done, that the reader will feel each emotion, experience all the characters frustrations, and of course, those small precious victories within it. I do not hand out 5 star reviews every-time, I do truly base it on: does the author draw me in? When breaks are taken, am I still thinking about the story? And is there a yell factor? (My yell factor is essentially me yelling some obscenity or surprise at a turn of events or in conclusion of the books.) If an author can get me to physically get me to respond, you got my star vote. Granted there were times, I was beyond frustrated from the characters, but it was worth it.
Within this tale, we meet Tabitha Jean Michaelson, an independent woman, but oh so broken in spirit. She has allowed a “Richard”-Head to crush her spirit, and in her healing process she has shut her heart off to everyone. Aside from her brother and immediate best friends, Tabitha keeps any and all other persons at arm length from her so she is not affected by them. Until she is shocked from open her eyes on a Video Conference call with a new potential client. Those blue eyes were so intense and just drew her into this entirely too good to be true, Carter Northwood.
Carter Northwood, architect and business mogul, has an issue with pulling clientele into one of his condo complexes; and on recommendation of his board of directors he pulls in the help of SHI an image improvement company. To start the ball rolling, he had to completed an initial video conference interview. When Carter signed into the server, to find what his eyes saw of this beautiful vixen on the other end, he was done for! Can Carter keep his dark past from touching this beautiful vixen and calls to his soul? Can it be true love at first sight?
The book is very entertaining and pulling, but does have its dark side. I do recommend to my friends to read it. Loved it. I can’t wait to start the next one!

 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Okay! Amazing Sauce, doesn’t cut it! I {HEART} A.M. Willard!!! She blew me away with the first book, and she just kept topping off my tank with this sip of extra cool water! Her writing style is great and so intense, that like I said before, it just draws you in. I love and hated a lot of the characters. But this was a great second book to the Unexpected Series! although, it was very hard to like the antagonist from the first book, even if that person had a change of heart. It just seemed too easy! But whatever, I loved this book anyways.
Within this tale, we continue with the destined love story of Tabitha Jean Michaelson and Carter Northwood. Both have their dark and dreaded past, Carter more so than Tabitha. But how can you stay away from what your heart yearns for the most? How can one bright light be so bad for you? I don’t want to give to many details out, but just know there is a great H.E.A. within the book. And I cannot wait for the next story.
I loved Tabitha’s spunkiness, but there were definite times I wanted to reach within the book and strangle her! And O.M.G., your belly will hurt from laughing so hard from her ridiculous antics! And Poor Carter! He has to learn how to be open with her closed door of a heart, and how to draw her in, plus tame his wild Tabby Cat.
Great Book, when’s the next?!

“You okay over there?” It looked like he had ants in his pants.

“I’m hard as a fucking rock thinking about fucking you.” He growled low in his throat. The sound was so sexy, and mixed with his words, a new rush of wetness settled between my legs.

“I want that,” I responded a bit breathlessly.

“Yeah?”

I nodded and swallowed hard when his hand resumed petting me through my pants, but this time higher. Each pass of his finger against my swollen lips made me want to moan. I craved skin on skin contact with this man something fierce.

“Jax?” I breathed out when he started doing circular motions that had me widening my legs.

“Mmmmm,” he mumbled against the skin of my neck as his lips tormented me there.

“Can I touch you?” My hand tentatively reached out and pressed against the bulge straining behind his zipper. His hips rose up, pressing him more firmly into my hand.

Removing his hand from between my legs, resulting in a small protest slipping from my lips, he deftly undid his button and zipper. He pulled himself from the confines of his damp jeans and placed my hand on his rather large erection. He was hot, silky, and smooth. Sheer perfection in my hand.

He growled in the back of his throat as I softly explored him. His head fell back on the headrest and his hands tightened into tight fists on his thighs. I chanced a quick glance over at him. A look of pain flitted across his features, but when he shouted, “Holy fuck,” as I swiped my hand over the head, I knew it was an exquisite pain he was feeling.
