Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Book 4
Reluctantly taking her best friend’s place at a photo shoot, realtor Laine Parker expects to assist the photographer for the day…not drool over the volunteer model, Westin King. The Texas Ranger and real-life cowboy is hot-on-hot sexy, from the tips of his boots to the top of his Stetson. Despite her visceral reaction to the man, the last thing Laine expects is a whirlwind romance–but that’s exactly what she gets.
Wes has been around the block enough to know what he wants, and he wants Laine. He wastes no time showing her how he feels…but he may never get the chance to tell her. Laine has disappeared, and it will take every connection Wes has–and a little help from a mangy stray–to get her back in his arms.
It is a truth that love finds you when you aren’t looking for it. This book is a perfect example of this. From a first glance both Wes and Laine know they are in for it. What, they aren’t certain but the fire and spark is immediate. This scene from their first date is one of my favorites.
“Thank you for a wonderful night,” Laine said as they headed toward his truck in the parking lot. “Oh, the night isn’t over yet. The best part is still to come.” “The best part? Even better than the fried Oreos at dinner? You’ll have to try pretty hard to top that one, Ranger.”
“Darlin’, you haven’t seen anything yet.” Wes felt Laine shiver at his endearment, but was too much of a gentleman to say anything about it.
He drove them to his ranch, and to her credit, she didn’t protest or otherwise tell him to take her home.
When they stopped, she commented dryly, “I thought we weren’t going to have sex.”
“We aren’t. First of all, I said we weren’t going to make love, not have sex. I have a feeling it will never be just sex between us. Secondly, I want to show you something . . . and no, it’s not in my bedroom,” Wes joked before she could comment. Her snarkiness was just one more thing he liked about her.
Wes grabbed her hand and relaxed when she didn’t hesitate to squeeze his in return. “Lead on, oh fearless cowboy. But remember, I’m not wearing my boots.”
“You don’t have far to walk, just hold on to me and I’ll make sure you don’t fall.” He led them to the barn, grabbing a canvas jacket that was hanging on a hook just inside the double doors. He helped Laine into it then continued, holding on to her hand, to the backside of the large structure, relieved to see the four-wheeler sitting just where he’d asked his foreman to put it when he was done with it for the day. He threw his leg over and looked back at Laine. “Climb on, darlin’.”
Justice for Laine – Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Locations 497-510).
As they get to know each other in and out of the bedroom, they also become friends. In spite of schedules that frequently keep them apart they can and do make time for each other. This is sometimes by phone instead of face to face. Until Laine makes a mistake, one that could prove fatal.
I love this book, I found myself laughing and holding my breath a lot as I read. The sex was explosive and the relationship insanely perfect.
