C’est un des livres plus chauds de l’année et donc la peine d’attendre! Oh, mon cœur!
Shane Kingston has to be one of Harper’s sexiest leading men. Stripper turned business partner, occassional bartender and spotlight dancer. The man is seriously alpha, a bit of a control freak and what he wants – has always wanted – is Nikki Clark. Only two things stand in the way, or rather two people. That would be their exes Lacey and Seth. These two just can’t seem to let go more than a year after the break ups. Nikki is ready to move on, let loose and learn to have fun. Shane wants to move on, let loose and have fun with Nikki. They’ve always been attracted to each other. Now they don’t have to deny what they want. After one SERIOUSLY sexy dance at Dirty Dog, these two make a deal that’s mutually beneficial and kills two birds with one stone. They get rid of their exes and thoroughly enjoy each others company. A fake relationship for the public but can that really work in private when these two have such a long standing burning attraction?
It’s hard not to love Nikki. She’s a dedicated teacher and friend. She’s beloved by all the Corps Security families and is seen as one of their own. When she gives, she gives everything. There’s no way that Shane can resist his draw to Nikki with her strong independent streak and her need to please and care for those that she loves. She is the perfect submissive compliment to his dominant nature. After a horrible breakup, Nikki wants to enjoy her life and part of that is indulging her needs with the dirty French talking, sexy hips wiggling bartender. It doesn’t take long for these two to see that what they have isn’t just a simply friendship with some great times burning the sheets. This is more and so much deeper than either expected with a lot more to lose. Suddenly what’s supposed to be fake becomes very real.
Insecurities arise and miscommunication takes its toll not only on Shane and Nikki but on their other friendships as well. Shane is a deep well of secrets and past hurts that demand that he have total control in all areas of his life. But what happens when once, just once, he lets it all go? Can Nikki give everything to Shane and finally have all that she’s ever wanted?
I finished Drunk On You with a smile on my face and immediately flipped back to read the ending another time. Then I flipped back to other scenes in the book that made me want more of Shane’s dominating personality and Nikki’s need for him. This trip to Hope Town has been my favorite so far. This book has a mix of everything that has made Harper one of my favorite go to authors – steamy sexy scenes, sweet heartwarming romance, a leading man that wears his alpha so well and a leading woman who I just had to cheer on as she fought for and then got her man. It was amazing to have Nate and Ember back as they supported their best friends in finding their own happy ending. Let’s not forget Shane’s little sister, Liberty. She’s a female version of her brother, strong willed and has deep hurts. I’m so excited to read her story on my next visit to Hope Town.
We may have been disappointed that we didn’t get this book earlier this year, but it was definitely worth the wait. My hat’s off to Harper and the absolutely divine Shane Kingston! Don’t miss this one. FANTASTIC, Harper!
Five Starboy and Mon Colibri Stars!
It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.
One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.
He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
