(Mine, Book 1)
Madison Waters knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. She was already working for one of the most prestigious law firms in Boston as a research assistant, and in a few short months, she would finally graduate from Harvard and collect her law degree. Everything Madison had worked so hard for, was well within her reach.
But when Madison has to take an unexpected trip back home, she's blindsided by the one thing she'd never planned on.
Desperate to escape his wicked past, Holden Brooks moved to Madison's hometown five years ago. It was a struggle at first, but he eventually overcame the demons that nearly destroyed him back in Texas. Holden is in a good place in his life and love is the very last thing on his mind.
Everything changes the moment their two paths collide and they soon find out, fate has a plan of its own.
You never know when love will come along and change...everything.
"Love just happens. And most of the time, it happens when you least expect it."
Maddie Waters thought she knew what she wanted...but really, she was not a girl that always made the "right call". In more ways than one. She has everything going for her at Boston - a great job while attending Harvard Law School. Perfect, right? Not so much.
Returning home for a family emergency was never in Maddie's plans, and what happened to her while visiting... not even in her dreams.
"You never know when love will come along and change... everything."
Holden Brookes is definitively one sexy country boy! He knows what he wants and he goes for it! Once he laid eyes on Maddie... well, let's just say, he had a tough time staying away. Things didn't start off smoothly between Maddie and Holden, but that sure did not last long. Their relationship is what I would call an excellent example of a 'fast paced love story'. Things were moving "at lightning speed" yet, they both knew it and even mentioned it throughout the book. The passion between them was just SO sizzling hot that you could tell they had developed genuine feelings towards each other. And yep. There sure are some steamy scenes between them, too. Especially, that first one at the barn!!!! My, my, my!!! Hello, Holden!
"I'll give you everything your precious heart desires... everything."
"Say it. Say your mine, Maddie. You own my heart now, baby. I gotta have yours too."
Anyway, just like in every relationship, things don't always go so smoothly. Maddie and Holden have their ups and downs, too. There's a bit of angst towards the end which caused me to be a pissed off at Maddie. Luckily for her, Holden is patient and simply put, freaking amazing! *sigh* I love him. So yes, rest assured, this has its happy ending and I'm glad. Holden sure deserved his HEA!
I'm definitely looking forward to book two which is about Maddie's sassy bff and Holden's sexy cousin.
"Love always finds a way."
Blood pounded my ears while furious heat raced through my veins. My face only inches from his; I pressed my finger right into the center of his firm chest. The tiny contact sent was like a current sending sparkling heat to pool hot between legs.
Intense desire began a fierce battle with my boiling anger. “Let’s get a few things straight. My name is Madison…not Maddie. And I’ve been driving a tractor since I was ten years old. I can do anything a man can do except piss standing up. But let me assure you, it wasn’t from lack of tryin’. Now, I don’t know who in the hell you think you are, but you damn sure don’t know me. So you can take your assumptions and shove ‘em up your ass.” I finished my rant with one final poke to his chest. That fantastic smile stretched his perfectly shaped lips and all I could think about was how on earth could a stupid ass smile could make my thighs clench? How could his laugh, his scent, and his entire fucking existence set me on fire like this? Anger and desire were dueling hard and fast. My body wanted what my mind refused to have. If I stood here any longer, desire was going to fuck me over.
Turning away from him, I didn’t chance a look back but I didn’t fail to hear two words fall from his mouth as I walked away.
