Dane and Izzy.
As the New Year begins, they find themselves facing very different circumstances.
Dane is a street racer stuck with a blown engine, no money, and no options after he gets fired for saving a damsel in distress.
Izzy can’t believe she was just rescued by the same handsome stranger she walks past, and lusts after, on a daily basis. With a massive blizzard about to bury the town, she ends up taking him in for the night.
Sparks fly when she brings out his playful side, and he shows her a passion she’s never known before.
As they slowly begin to trust each other, walls come down and tragic pasts emerge. Dane is haunted by the family he never had, while Izzy will stop at nothing to deny her birthright.
When Dane receives an offer he can’t refuse, will one bad decision cost him everything? Or will fate intervene and send these two down the path they were destined for?
This is a full length, stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Please be advised that you will find strong language, attractive men with tattoos, a dog with a cat name, steamy bedroom scenes including one involving Doritos, plenty of character backstory, and a very healthy dose of humor.
Let me start by saying that I absolutely adore Risata. She is such a cool person as well as skilled author. This is the second novel I have read from her, but I plan on following her as long as she writes.
Contemporary romance is not my thing (unless it’s really erotic). I prefer mine to be paranormal. But Risata’s stories are just so well woven and entertaining, that it’s impossible for me not to enjoy them. I feel like I am watching a movie when I read her novels, with the depth and character that goes into to each person she creates and intricate storyline she weaves. Not to mention the chemistry between the leads that has steam rising off the pages. I am hooked from the very first chapter. It doesn’t hurt that I am a sucker for the stuck-together-because-of-a-blizzard trope, especially if it’s well written.
To me, Risata has it all. The characters, the story, the sex, the humor, just everything! They fit together like a well-made puzzle revealing the most satisfying picture.
