Take Me, Lover, Book 4
Just a few more weeks and accounting student Cherry Harris will officially get her master’s degree and kiss her pink waitress uniform goodbye. There’s something else she’d like to make official, too—no more bad boys.
Tired of getting burned, she’s determined that from now on, it’s nice guys or nothing. What could be nicer than a firefighter rescuing a kitten from a tree? Joe Deluca looks like the perfect way to break her romantic destructive pattern.
Perfect melts like ice cream on a hot day when Cherry finds out that when Joe’s not in uniform, he rides a motorcycle and wears a leather jacket over his tattoos. Is he a nice guy, a bad boy, or the man who’s just right for her?
The five-alarm passion Joe inspires proves an irresistible temptation, but Cherry’s determined to guard her heart if not her body. Until a firebug leads them both into danger and Cherry is forced to admit her heart’s been in jeopardy from the beginning…
Dangerous Lover is a sensual and naughty novella that tingles in all the right places. Author Charlene Teglia’s newest addition to her Take Me Lover series is better than ever.
Cherry has had it with bad boys and swears off of them for good. Deciding it’s time for a change, she vows to go out with the first good guy she meets. And what do you know? He arrives in the form of luscious fire fighter Joe. Not only does he put out fires, he also rescues kittens in his spare time. How can you possibly get any sweeter than that? Too bad Joe is anything but sweet beneath the fireman’s suit. He owns a motorcycle, has a tattoo, and causes a hazardous combustion of his own in the bedroom. So the question becomes – how can she keep this casual? And more importantly, does she want to?
Holy-flame-thrower, Batman!! This one is hot! Cherry is a saucy vixen that you can’t help but love while Joe is absolutely irresistible. I loved their banter, the clever and oftentimes funny dialogue, and the intimate scenes that will make you melt. Much like the first two in the series, you get a strong feel for the characters in a very short period of time. I couldn’t wait to learn what happened next, and in true Teglia fashion, she adds a bit of suspense and tension toward the end to keep you on your toes.
A must read if you’re a fan of the series (and even if you’re not!) be sure to put Dangerous Lover on your TBR list.
