Can one night of passion ignite a fire that will last a lifetime?

Sexy, overbearing, bold, take no prisoners Ava Alexander drives me crazy. She’s the opposite of me and everything I don’t want in a woman.
Then there’s Sage Wilson…everything I should and do want. Ava’s a match, and if I let her, she’ll burn down everything around me. But one night is all it takes. A night seared into my mind of a raven-haired temptress with a body made for the worst kind of the sweetest sin and regret.

I don’t want to hurt anyone. If I let her break down my defenses, that’s exactly what will happen.

I’m a woman who knows what she wants and I make no apologies for it. Smart and successful, I have everything. Except for the one man I have my sight set on, Christopher Reed, my best friend’s brother. He’s handsome, caring, patient, the voice of reason. But don’t be fooled, as I learned, underneath all his controlled reserve is a man that commands obedience, and he’s not easily swayed by my charms and bold demeanor. But I’m a woman determined to show him I’m exactly what he needs. There’s only one problem: Sage. The one person standing in my way.






This third book in the series is another good one.
Chris’ attraction to Ava is something he tries to deny, while Ava fully blares out her extreme attraction to Chris. Being an out there type of woman, who doesn’t take fools easily or at all, she sets her sights on Chris from an early age. Chris finds it hard to resist her allure but fights against it.
I really like Ava, the way Shaniel describes her makes you either like her or instantly dislike her. She is such a full on woman with loads of sass and great wit.
Chris is a caring man who admires Ava’s strength of character even though he detested her practical jokes when they were younger.
The Reed family is featured, at times, giving us more insight to the other characters and what they are doing.
I enjoyed the story a lot, however, felt it was stretched out a little and maybe a novella might have been better. Just my opinion but still a great story to read and I look forward to reading more about the Reeds.
