My rating: 5 of 5 stars
DRAWN TO HIM is a collection of romance that should satisfy all kinds of readers! There’s billionaires, doctors, cops and judges, second chances and new beginnings, bad boys and good girls, sweetness and darkness. Like I said, something for everyone! These are all novella type stories so not too long. If you haven’t read any of these authors (and if you haven’t, are you nuts?!?! LOL!) you can pick up this book and try out one or all! (I know, I sound like a saleswoman!). I loved that each story was complete, I could invest an hour or so here and there and finish a story…very satisfying when I’m in a hurry. I’m not going to review EACH of the eight stories but with authors like Willow Winters, LJ Shen and Jade West, you truly can’t go wrong. Told from various POVs with happy endings. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
You know the kind. They steal the breath from your lungs and make your heart beat a little faster with a single look. You can’t stop staring, but the moment they pin those gorgeous eyes on you, you’re done for.
The kind that’s too hard to resist.
This is a collection of men just like that.
Handsome, confident and all for you.
These are the other authors involved with this collection, M. Never, L.J. Shen, K. Webster, Jade West, Isabella Starling, A. Zavarelli and K.L Kreig.
“You’re very handsome, Mr. Kulls.” I finally give in to a bit of my desire, and pick up the glass of wine, holding on to it for support in this decision.
His grin widens and he leans forward just slightly to say, “Alec, Lila. My name is Alec to you.” He pauses for a moment, then flashes me a smirk and adds, “Unless of course you’d like to scream ‘Mr. Kulls’ in bed?”
My face heats instantly as he rises from his seat to attend to the beeping oven and he’s quick to say, “I do believe Alec may be easier.”
The sweet wine touches my lips and the taste is delicious, but I can’t think of anything other than this man on top of me, making me scream as he thrusts inside of me repeatedly.
“I think you’ve maybe thought a little too far ahead, Mr.- Alec,” I’m quick to correct myself. I watch as he works in the oven, turning the chicken breasts and then setting the tongs back down on the counter before coming back to his seat.
“This isn’t very professional,” I tell him with a serious look, or at least the most serious I can manage. He shrugs his shoulders and then takes a sip from his glass.
“Do you want it to be?” he asks and then adds, “That’s fine if you do. I understand the attraction may only be on my end.”
My heart thumps hard in my chest. I don’t think this man knows how to be subtle. He’s honest and to the point. But I admire that.
“It’s definitely not just one-sided,” I admit, and then bite my tongue. I’m thinking I should add that this is dangerous for me. I could lose my job. More than that though, this man could crush me. I’ve never had a one-night stand because I know I don’t really do casual. I’ve been wined and dined and then thrown away before. It hurts too much.
I don’t recover easily, and I prefer to avoid relationships. But it’s been so long since I’ve been touched.
“So, tomorrow?” he asks me, and my brow furrows with confusion.
“Tomorrow?” I repeat.
He smiles at me, and the smell of his cologne, or maybe his natural scent hits me with a powerful force that makes me lean in closer to him.
“Would you like to go out with me tomorrow?” he asks.
His gray eyes swirl with a mixture of desire and something else–a desperate need. I nod my head slowly and say, “I’d love to.”
