How Have I Never Read Nicole McLaughlin?!
First of all, I would be remiss in not stating that there are potential triggers in this book. In an effort to avoid spoilers, let me just say that this book touches on (no details) some of the unspeakable acts adults perpetrate upon children, so if that's an issue for you, you may want to try one of the other books in the Man Enough series.
That said, I thought this book was phenomenal! McLaughlin has the skill and voice of a seasoned writer, easily bringing the story alive and drawing me in. The heroine was the type of quirky, larger-than-life, a little insecure and a lot loveable character that I always enjoy, and the hero was a tough, stoic alpha with a big heart and a bit of damage that made me easily fall for him.
