The guns. The fights. The thrills. The sex.
This one has it all!
Side note: This book has straight up five stars on Amazon. I’m just sayin’.
Beverly Jenkins proves she not only has a gift for writing historical novels, but writing an amazingly hot and sexy contemporary romance is within her powers also.
Maxine “Max” Blake is hired to protect Dr. Adam Gary, a black scientist who may have just created a prototype that will put the oil industry out of business. When Max meets the sexy, intelligent scientist she is surprised he doesn’t like her, and he is downright rude. The two butt heads constantly but when the “ice” begins to break….
It kept my eyes glued to the page. Let me tell you. I had a sty on my eye, needed rest, needed to get back into reality, but when I read a Beverly Jenkins story I am caught in and it takes a while for me to come up for air.
That is what this book did for me.
Not only does Max remind you of Storm from X-Men(but with green eyes), her resolve her strength and her humility is infectious. Dr. Adam Gary needed more people skills but you grow a soft spot for him when you learn of his past and his love for science. Plus, the fact that he knows how to turn up the heat on lovin’ helps a bit!
So, let me gift you with a passage from the book so you’ll know what I mean, then afterwards get the book post haste if you haven’t already.
Warning! The following brief passage will elicit a slow burn in your heart. Take those antacids!
“If I don’t see you anymore today, what do you want for breakfast in the morning?” she asked.
“Eggs, bacon, toast.”
Adam wished she were. The look in her eyes and the tone of her voice made him take a deep mental breath…Blame it on his celibacy, blame it on her, blame it on whatever, but he was hard as a rock.”(from Sexy/Dangerous, Jenkins, 2006).
See what I mean?
