All Anna wants for her fortieth birthday is a ladies’ night out. Her plans are stalled when she ends up stuck in her griffin costume. The mascot for the Alexandria Griffins, she never expects to be rescued by the star of her midnight fantasies, quarterback Kyran Black. Called “The Rebel” by the press because of his long hair, tattoos and playboy stats off the field, he’s everything Anna should avoid.
Kyran is gorgeous and irresistible and he suggests they celebrate her birthday together. Certain she’s too old for him, she agrees to one night. Kyran’s charm and dominance in bed blitz Anna’s defenses, teaching her things about sex she never thought she’d experience.But when their one-night stand turns into a relationship, his bad-boy past comes back to threaten their future.
This book was so delicious I don’t know where to begin. Kyran Black is the type of hero every woman would love to have. Talented, smart, caring, and a dirty talker, he speaks his mind and follows through with his word. On the flip side Anna personifies women of her age group and even some younger. The fears, thoughts of inadequacies, flaws she sees that would be invisible to anyone else give us a direct visual of what she believes she lacks. What she fails to see is that aging doesn’t make her less of sexy woman, and her other traits are what add to her desirability.I kept rooting for this couple, through all the media, the agenda of some choice people who I deem cook coo for coco puffs and those aiming for the highlight spot, not caring if their negligent behaviour ruins lives. I hoped his past wouldn’t bite him in the butt and that through it all the true substance of both hero and heroine would emerge. The sex was white hot, but everything else cemented it together in the perfect package.
