Bears of Blackrock Novella
by Lia Davis
After Glows (April 23, 2015)
Fresh from an ugly breakup that trampled her spirit, Nichole just wants to hide away. Unfortunately, her BFF has other plans. Nichole gets dragged to a girls’ night out at new club called The Claw, where she meets the intense and gorgeous Trey Black. With eyes that burn and a body built for sin, any woman would sit up and take notice. But why bother? Men like him didn’t date women like her.
Trey considers it a good day if he can just stay out of trouble. As the youngest son of the bear Alpha, he’s a master at getting his way. When he meets the curvy, raven-haired goddess, Nichole, he realizes exactly what he wants and knows that she’s worth any amount of trouble. All he has to do is seduce all of her insecurities away and claim her as his bonded mate.
Nicole moved to Blue Ridge to start over, without anyone judging her. She needs a job but it seems they all want a college degree that she doesn’t have. While enjoying a hazelnut mocha latte at Beary Sweets, she notices the three very large gorgeous men watching her. When one of them comes over to her table she really wasn’t in the mood to for male pranks and bets. This is one of my favorite scenes.
Her heart hammered when he sat in the seat across from her and leaned over the table. When he spoke, his words came out as a husky growl-like whisper. “Have dinner with me.”
Blinking, she tamped down the urge to touch him. What the hell was wrong with her? “I’m sorry, I don’t have dinner with strangers.”
The corners of his full mouth lifted. “Forgive me.” he offered her his hand. “I’m Trey Black.”
She flicked her gaze to the other two men at the front table. They stared at her and the handsome stranger as if eagerly waiting for Trey to score. Not today. All the fire inside her dissolved into a cool mist. She tucked her tablet into her tote and stood. “I’m not interested in middle school games. If you’d like, I can just give you my panties and save you the trouble. That way, you won’t look like a total loser in front of your friends.”
When she turned, he gripped her wrist. Electrified prickles raced up her arm, awakening the flame once again. “I don’t play games. I like you.”
She almost laughed. “You could have any woman you want. A perfect model type, So forgive me if I don’t believe you.”
Snatching her wrist free from his grasp, she fled past his friends and out the door.
I love the way Trey goes about trying to convince Nicole of her beauty. It’s a good thing she already knows a bit about the animals in the area, thanks to her BFF Connie.
This is a short eventful book with a bit of angst, some jealousy and a bunch of sizzling sex.
