Blurb

 

With an ex fiancé leaving her in debt, breaking up with her girlfriend and struggling to find a place she can afford, Sophie McKenna has hit an all-time low. Everyone thinks she’s a lesbian, and she likes it that way, but her estranged parents know better.

The foul-mouthed motocross mechanic, Rocco De Luca, only has his incarcerated brother left. Every day is a battle of the mind and of the bottle. Tequila and easy women soothe the pain, but they never fill the void.

Rocco doesn’t mind offering his spare room to the hot lesbian he refers to as ‘Suds’. She won’t be clingy, far from it, and he’s keen on the idea of getting to see a bit of girl on girl action.

With such volatile personalities under the same roof, and being in April and Spencer’s wedding party, they both have to learn to get along, even though they can’t stand each other.

He never thought he might actually grow to like her.She never thought she might actually hate him less.

 

 

 

Review

I love this series so I was really excited to start  this one. The blurb really intrigued me too. Sophie has just broken things off with her girlfriend. She wants to settle down and start a family but her ex only wanted to focus on her career. Heart broken but determined to find her happiness Sophie moves in with her best friend and her boyfriend.

Though she loves her BFF, she isn’t so keen on the sofa bed nor the thin walls between her and the love birds’ bedroom. In fact she’s so desperate for somewhere with a mattress she agrees to move in with her arch nemesis Rocco.

He’s loud, crass and a complete player – their big personalities have always clashed. But he thinks she’s a lesbian so she thought she’d be safe from his charm. Oh how wrong she was.

As they grow closer they realise that they have more in common than they thought, and their chemistry is off the charts. But Rocco has more going on than he’s letting on. Will they be able to pull through it together and put the energy they put into fighting into loving each other instead?

Really Loved this book!! It was funny, emotional, HOT and a real roller-coaster! Absolutely love the characters too. A real 5 star read!

Excerpt

 

If I poke him, will it be like waking an angry bear? I’m tempted, but I won’t. That’d be a bitchy thing to do. We might be living under the same roof, but we lead separate lives. And that’s how I want it. Completely separate. Removed. His business is his, and mine is mine. I take a step backward and step on something metal. I crouch down and pick up a spoon. I look around underneath the coffee table, and find an empty glass bowl with remnants of green an inch below the rim.

Snatching up the bowl, the cruel absence of what I was planning to eat when I got home tonight mocks me.

The motherfucker ate my jelly.

“Hey,” I bark out with a hard shove to his shoulder.

Rocco grumbles and swings his head back violently, one eye open as he searches me out. “Who the … what the fuck?” he hisses. Rolling onto his side, he props himself up and falls back into the couch cushions and runs his fingers down his face. His dark brown, almost-black eyes drill me, as he runs his tongue over his bottom teeth. The whites of his eyes are scattered with red, and beads of sweat lace his brow and down the sides of his face. He looks like shit. More accurately, he looks like someone who greedily smashed a bottle of primo tequila last night.

“You ate my jelly,” I say, shoving the bowl towards him.

He shrugs and his lip curls to the side. “I was hungry,” he says with a challenging gaze.

“You were fucking hungry? I haven’t been here even twenty-four hours and you’re helping yourself to my food?”

He scoffs, and I want to punch him in the face.

“It’s jelly,” he says, with a roll of his eyes. “It’s like a dollar or some shit. I’ll buy a packet. Bloody hell, I’ll buy two. No need to get your fuckin’ panties in a bunch.”

He sits up and rakes his fingers back through the longer strands of dark hair on the top of his head. He slouches farther into the couch, one hand scratching at the faded black T-shirt adorning his chest, the other hand sliding between his legs and adjusting himself.

Fucking men.

“I’m not pissed about the fact it costs bugger all. I don’t touch your shit and you don’t touch mine. Got it?”

I turn on my heel, flicking my ponytail over my shoulder. I couldn’t be arsed waiting for his response. I can’t imagine I’ll like it anyway.

“Fine,” he grumbles.

“And would it kill you to put the bloody toilet seat down?” I throw at him as I walk out the door.

His laughter echoes into the stairwell, right before the door slams shut.

 
Arsehole.

Release Date: February 28, 2015

Synopsis

Going undercover has its challenges. When Detective Ryan Clark is sent to the sleepy coastal town of Fremantle to dismantle the country’s most lethal drug syndicate, it’s worth the risk. Even if he becomes a fatality, in the war against drugs.

Ryan finds himself coming back to the same coffee shop. Blondie, the local barista, has him hot under the collar and reaching for his piece. He knows the attraction isn’t just one-sided.

She’s trying to keep her distance.

It only makes him want her more.

Willow Asher left it all behind, but not by choice.

After two long years, she’s finally getting somewhere. Willow has a busy café with her buxom business partner, Gabby, who is the closest thing she has to family.

Although Willow’s past still plagues her thoughts, she’s determined to have her happily-ever-after. As soon as her demons stop haunting her.

What she doesn’t need is the complication of Mr Sexy-Brown-Eyes, who seems to be drinking more and more coffee.

She doesn’t want the questions.

She’s still trying to get her story straight.

 

 

Review

Is there anything hotter than a protective alpha male whose also happens to be an undercover cop? Well…if he wasn’t undercover he’d wear a uniform…but still Ryan Clark… he is hold-the-phone-panty-melting-HOT!

I (unfortunately) haven’t read the first 3 books in this series before receiving my ARC so I read Sting purely as a standalone. It was also the first book I’d read from Jennifer Ryder and it definitely won’t be the last! I fully intend to go back and read the first few books in the series now.

Ryan Clark is an undercover cop, working to infiltrate and bring down the major drug circuits. Moving up the ranks he’s thrilled to be involved in such a big case after his last one didn’t go as planned when he got involved with a woman whilst undercover. Determined to not mess up this time he vows to focus purely on the job when he moves across the country to a small coastal town to become Ryan Palmer, the new apprentice boat mechanic.

Like any other self-respecting person he can’t start his day properly without his hit of caffeine. Walking into the best looking café he can find he wasn’t prepared for the blonde beauty behind the counter. First day on the job and he’s already lusting after a woman – something he promised he wouldn’t do this time.

Getting involved with a woman when your whole life in her eyes is a lie is never going to be easy.

Willow Asher has worked hard to create a good life for herself. After a troubled past she’s moved across the country to escape…but not by choice.

Having left her family behind all that time ago and starting again with nothing she’s finally made something for herself and beginning to truly feel happy – but not safe. Constantly on edge and unable to trust, she doesn’t let many people in, apart from her fabulous bestie Gabby and the little girl who will melt your heart called Sienna.

When Mr Sexy Brown-Eyes (aka Ryan) walks into the café she isn’t prepared for the instant attraction she feels. Scared and ruled by the past life that she’s kept a secret, she pushes him away. But Ryan is persistent, charming and has a way with words with a smile to match that would melt the panties off of any red-blooded woman.

But having spent so long hiding who she is and keeping everyone at arms length will Willow ever be able to let someone like Ryan, a man who obviously has secrets of his own, in?

With both of them living a lie but unable to deny the attraction between them, will Ryan and Willow be able to put aside the identities they’ve adopted to save each other and accept the love between them?

I loved each and every character in Sting but for very different reasons. Willow carries so much pain and vulnerability from the life she left behind and yet she has so much strength and determination to overcome her fears and live the life she’s always dreamed about. Ryan is this protective alpha male who exudes so much masculinity but behind it all he wants to settle down and love a woman the way she deserves to be. The way he sets out to prove to Willow that not all men are untrustworthy is just so romantic – I mean the garden? That definitely made my heart squeeze!! As for the secondary characters – Gabby? Gosh I bloody love her!!! Sienna is just too cute and Mick (Ryan’s partner on the case) is pretty damn funny too!

A swoon-worthy alpha male and a heartbroken leading lady determined to find her happiness again Sting is a story of second chances that will teach you undercover cop romances are certainly something to get hot under the collar about. This may be my first Jennifer Ryder book but it won’t be my last!

PS. tissues, chocolate and new panties are advised during the reading of this novel.
