Keane Morgan wouldn’t return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn’t want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin’ choice in the matter--at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax’s coveted parking spot at UCLA.
Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated. And, honestly, what kind of guy uses the phrase “baby doll” with a straight face? Oh, that’s right: the kind of guy who’s a male stripper.
Yup, the cocky jerk turned out to be Seattle’s answer to Magic Mike, a stripper known as “Ball Peen Hammer”--which meant Keane Morgan was emphatically not the kind of guy I’d ever fall for.
Not. At. All.
No freakin’ way.
Well, until Keane convinced me to fall for him, that is.
Which I did.
About the Author
USA Today and internationally bestselling author Lauren Rowe lives in San Diego, California, where, in addition to writing books, she performs with her dance/party band at events all over Southern California, writes songs, takes embarrassing snapshots of her ever-patient Boston terrier, Buster, spends time with her wonderful family, and narrates audiobooks. Much to Lauren’s thrill, her books have been translated all over the world in multiple languages and hit multiple domestic and international bestseller lists. With enticing characters, enthralling situations and a general love of romantic fiction, Lauren has created a world of her own, full of wit and sensual desire.
With a story like this, I have to say the cover is right on point-it definitely proves this book rocks. With Ball Peen Hammer, Lauren gives us another into her bright and amazingly talented mind space and what I read, I adore.
Keane Morgan ‘s younger brother, Dax, asked him to be a babysitter and companion for his friend and neighbor Hannah Banana Montana Milliken's sister Madelyn on her trip on which she is driving home from Seattle to LA. Keane wasn’t really into that but he finally agrees to do this and OMG, what a hilarious time they have, the banter and the sexual chemistry is thru the roof with these two.
Madelyn Milliken is one sassy and sweet woman who is so smart yet she is someone who stands apart from people. She doesn’t know how to get close until she runs into Keane. He is someone who doesn’t know the meaning of “personal space” . After some time spent with Keane, she quickly finds herself warming up to him and their chemistry is great. It’s a breath of fresh sexual air yet so potent. You have to experience Keane and Maddie to understand why they are a great couple. They push/pull each other in , they go back and forth yet they are so Real with each other. I felt for them, hurt with them and experienced with them as they went on their journey together. The ending is soo LR and so good, when the book ended, I had to go back and read their story all over again. Keane is so alpha and so cock-sure about himself that when Maddie came into his life, she blew him out of the water, it was epic. This is one book you do not want to miss.
My rating: 4.6 stars ****
