A past with three, a future for two…
Sequel to A Question of Trust.
Gabe Carter and his best friend Connor’s passion for threesomes brought Tina Jenkins into Gabe’s bed—and into his heart. As a matter of honor, he gave up the woman he loved. Time passes, times change and old promises fall away, but Gabe is still in love with Tina. Now he’s going after his heart’s desire.
Tina has her own opinion about Gabe’s sense of honor. His departure tore apart the most special of bonds and destroyed her relationship with Connor, leaving her brokenhearted. It took her a long time to pick up the pieces, a struggle she doesn’t wish to repeat. When Gabe shows up at her favorite coffee shop, she knows just where to tell him to stick his apology.
Gabe isn’t so easily put off—and Tina can’t help but respond to his seduction. Picking up where they left off is tempting, but Gabe wants her all to himself. And Tina wants the whole package, which includes Connor.
At the risk of crushing his hopes for the future, Gabe sets out to prove he’s more than enough man for her…
Warning: If piping hot sex, ménage scenes, adult toys, anal play, short blonde heroines and stacked, muscular heroes are not your cup of tea, then don’t read this book. You won’t enjoy it.
Four years ago, his code of honor caused him to walk away from his heart’s desire. Could you walk away from the only woman you’ve ever loved, especially considering that woman is also in love with your best friend? Or, do you run the risk of destroying a lifelong friendship?
Tina Jenkins is feisty, direct, sarcastic, and quick witted with her bitter comebacks that are a true reflection of her sharp mind. While some of these traits would send a grown man running for the hills, they only awaken the desire in Gabe Carter. When Gabe approaches Tina at their favorite coffee shop, the logical side of her brain says walk away, but the sensual side remembers the passion that she shared with Gabe. The way his touch, or a mere look, could set her body and soul on fire. Unfortunately, her fear of being not only hurt, but destroyed both emotionally and physically if Gabe were to walk away from her a second time causes Tina’s response to be cold, cynical, and harsh enough that each syllable acts as a dagger to deter Gabe’s confidence of winning her back.
Gabe is the strong, sexy, silent type that at times drives a woman crazy, especially Tina. Often described as being in a “catatonic state”, his actions are definitely stronger than his non-existent words, especially when it comes to pleasuring the woman he loves. Even when Tina inquires as to the reason Gabe is contacting her after four long years of silence, the words form a knot in his throat. In his head, everything is clear, he loves Tina and has so since the first time he laid eyes on her. There’s only one problem, convincing her to take him back is going to be an uphill battle that at times will question whether or not he’s man enough for his heart’s desire because her harsh, angered words are like salt being rubbed over fresh wounds. Can Gabe get past the hurt and anger to help her remember that she loves him and only him? Will doubt, miscommunication and at times lack of communication, the fear of being hurt and abandoned again prevent these two lovers from being together forever?
Sometimes, are we so blinded by the past that we fail to see what’s right in front us; thereby discarding how GREAT the future could be if we were willing to take a chance and risk it all…for LOVE? These are the questions that Gabe and Tina will have to resolve before they can live happily ever after, but whether or not they will succeed is truly A Question of Love.
Although the sexual desires of Gabe and Tina are enough to set your E-reader a blaze, that’s not what makes this story so great. It’s the emotional connection between the two characters that’s so heartwarming and intense that at times it’ll make you weep when remembering they’ve been apart for four long years. Time wasted that can never be recovered and all because of an inflexible code of honor. I was engrossed in the story from page one when the couple confronted each other in the coffee shop. Gabe and Tina’s passion for one another is something that most women and men dream of, but often never obtain in a lifetime.
Ms. Dee provides the reader with a sexy, scorching hot, passionate story that’s not only guaranteed to take your breath away, but will also take you on an emotional roller coaster ride that will have you begging for more. The struggles her characters endure are realistic and at times creates what I like to call the “ah ha” effect. Anyone who’s ever been in a relationship and had to struggle to make it work will identify with Gabe and Tina situation. A Question of Love is not only the perfect title for Ms. Dee’s work of art, but also a definite recommend to all my friends. This gripping story of love, loss, and sexual desire is definitely a book I’ll re-read on many occasions. Two thumbs up to Ms. Dee and her sensual masterpiece, A Question of Love.
