Disclosure of Material Connection:   I received this book for review from Give Me Books Promotions and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


I don’t date alpha males.
Especially not alpha males with egos the size of Jupiter, who also happen to be my boss’s big brother.

Deacon Hunter is domineering. Condescending. Infuriating.

And yet I can’t seem to keep my panties on for five minutes when we’re alone together.

He keeps melting them right off. With that sexy voice, those confident hands, the way he brings my body wildly to life, he’s proved my libido hasn’t gone into permanent, post-divorce hibernation after all.

Surely there’s no harm in being enemies with benefits… Right?


When Violet Boden asks me to take her Divorce Virginity, the only thing I can think is — come again?

No, seriously, come again.

And again and again, until both of us are so satisfied we can’t remember the people who did us wrong.

Best if we keep conversation to a minimum, though, considering I drive her crazy. She drives me crazy sometimes, too. But she’s also sweet, loyal, fearless, and so much fun she’s making it damn hard not to fall for her.

But how to convince a woman who’s put me in the emotional no-fly zone that I deserve a place in her heart?

My Thoughts:

Violet Boden seems to be having a string of bad luck. Deacon Hunter may just have met his match. I loved how the author twisted things because he did and she didn’t. It made it very easy to follow so that I could watch for the turnaround point – that doesn’t mean it felt predictable either. Loved the fact that this is a second chance for two people over the age of thirty.

This is one of those stories where you’re not laughing at the character’s expense. It’s more like you’re laughing with them. This story is actually pretty sweet. There are moments of tension and steam but the heat is more of a simmer. And the author knows how to use that to tease. There’s just enough for you to fill in the blanks or to leave it up to your imagination.

Our author makes it real by adding in some unexpected things that a lot of people go through. Sometimes there are bumps in the road that can test any relationship. The true test is whether or not the couple can get through the storm. As the ending crept closer, I loved how the author added in another twist that had me sit up and take notice. And speaking of ending, the author gave me a suggestion of what I may want to read next – plus a sneak peek.

I went into the story not knowing that this was part of a series. That lets me know that you can consider this a standalone and could probably read about the brothers in any order. So I may have to put the author’s suggestion on the backburner since I have some Hunter Brothers to check out. Maybe you will feel the same way. It certainly left me looking forward to reading more of Ms. Valente’s work.

Author Bio:

Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. A die-hard romantic and optimist at heart, she can’t resist a story where love wins big. Because love should always win.

When she’s not writing, Lili enjoys adventuring with her two sons, climbing on rocks, swimming too far from shore, and asking “why” an incorrigible number of times per day. A former yoga teacher, actor, and dancer, she is also very bendy and good at pretending innocence when caught investigating off-limits places.

You can currently find Lili in the mid-South, valiantly trying to resist the lure of all the places left to explore.

Lili also writes super naughty books as L. Valente.
