Legendary FBI profiler Matteo Cassano gives the orders. He is not accustomed at all to following them. The control-freak legend of the FBI could have any woman he wants, and often had in the past. But when he meets the amazing, younger Brenna Langley, he might have finally found the woman that could change his entire life.
Brenna Langley is professional, focused, and determined to move ahead in her career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Having tried a few failed relationships, she had decided that romance would not be in the cards for her. That was, until Matt Cassano enters her orbit and she finds herself on a secret, covert mission to save the great man from himself.
But what happens when these two determined personalities clash and the change is more than either one of them bargained for? And when Matt’s health becomes an issue, can the fledgling relationship survive?
STANDALONE. HEA. Romantica erotica.
ARC provided by Author/Publisher for honest review.
Heartbeats is a new story by the awesome duo of Sarah O’Rouke. As always they create a story where I just fall in love with it’s characters.
Brenna and Matt’s attraction for each other is instant and I loved how they were co-workers first. Then friendship to lovers. Made this more believable to me as a reader, that them caring for one another was done right.
The storyline pulled me in and I just enjoyed the interaction from Brenna/Matt and his family. I enjoyed the ups and my heart hurt on the downs. Just gave me all the feels but as always love prevails!
This is definitely a must read!
A mere ten minutes later, Bren found herself firmly wrapped in those arms of his, straddling his waist as he made himself quite at home on her leather sofa. Dropping another quick kiss to his waiting lips, she felt his hands slide under her blouse, his fingers finding the shallow indentation of her lower spine and stroking her sensitive skin gently.
Moaning as Matteo’s arms tightened around her waist and pulled her closer, Bren’s eyelids fluttered as she arched against his warm touch. Biting her lip, she felt Matt’s devious lips smiling devilishly against her neck as his magic fingers skated up her toned sides, stopping only when he reached the satiny fabric barrier of her bra. “Oh, God,” she gasped as he leaned forward, dropping a slow, wet kiss to the center of her neck, her pulse pounding against his tongue. Tracing a slow, agonizing pattern up her neck and ending at her ear, Bren shivered as he slowly drew her earlobe between his lips.
Matteo grinned as he felt a shudder claim her aroused body, and he couldn’t resist pushing her just a little bit farther. “So tell me, Brenna,” he whispered sensually against her flesh, his warm breath fanning her neck and pulling another quiver from her small body. “Are you still thinking about keeping me out of your bed tonight, love?”
Sinking her teeth into her lower lip as she shifted in the cradle of his lap, Bren’s hand fisted in Matteo’s shirt, her nails digging into the soft material as her other hand desperately tried to unfasten the infuriating buttons she just knew had to be there somewhere. “Now, Matt,” she said breathlessly, “I think we’ve proven that this couch is more than sufficient for our needs, don’t you?”
“Which needs would we be talking about, babe?” Matteo asked on a growl as he dropped his hand back to her waist. Trailing one blunt fingertip up her side until he cupped the warm weight of her satin- covered breast in his hand, he rubbed his lips against the thrumming pulse in her neck as he murmured,
“Maybe this need right here?”
