Author: Katee Robert
He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marceline with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn’t sound like a bad idea… and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and über-hot bod of her best friend’s older brother.
After years of waiting in painful silence, cop Aaron Robinson finally has Marceline’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marceline he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness…
3.5 out of 4 stars
This novella, part of Katee Robert's Out of Uniform series, was a cute, quick read. It was well written and the romance between Marceline and Aaron was sweet but unfortunately I couldn't really connect with the characters mostly due to the fact that their story felt really rushed. I get that this is a novella, so there the story is more condensed but still when I finished reading this book even though I liked the story and the characters I felt kind of dissatisfied with the story. I would have really preferred if this book was a full-length book instead of a novella because honestly I just needed so much more!
