Rating: ♥♥♥♥

Synopsis: Widowed at a young age, Rachel Halson has spent the last 20 years as the ultimate mother, volunteer and picture-perfect good girl—and she’s had enough. Now she wants to experience all things sexual. The only problem is that Rachel’s not sure she has it in her; fortunately, that changes the instant she meets Detective Mitch Lang.

Mitch is gruff, demanding and definitely not the type to break in a mild-mannered homemaker from Wyoming. However, after one taste of her, Mitch finds he wants nothing more than to teach the lovely Miss Halson all the naughty things he can do to her in his bed.

Luckily, Mitch and Rachel both want the same thing—sex. No strings, no emotions, just hot, wild sex . . . and lots of it.

But when casual begins to feel like commitment and a dirty cop threatens their relationship, Mitch and Rachel must decide if what they have is actually worth fighting for.

Warning: This book contains a mature sexy, alpha male hero who knows how to make a curvy woman scream in bed, on a table, against a wall, on the floor and anywhere else he pleases. Its spicy sex scenes may be too hot for some to handle, and there’s no lack of four-letter words. Luckily one of them is 'love'.

My thoughts:
This is a quick, entertaining read that features Rachel, a woman who admits that she's overweight but isn't all hung up on her image and is comfortable with herself (thank heavens for that!) and Mitch, the detective she meets after the party she's attending was raided. Sparks fly between the two, but due to misconceptions on Mitch's part he believes that Rachel is nothing more than a prostitute and gives her the choice of going to jail'll have to read the book to find out :)

This was my second time reading a story by Julie Raust and just as before Choosing Chase, Ms. Raust has written easy to believe characters. It's very easy to form a mental picture of Rachel, and while I didn't care for Mitch in the beginning of the story, but once he came back after that first incident, my opinion of him greatly improved. Yeah he's abrasive and might act like a jerk, but he's also fiercely protective of Rachel, so we know he's not a egotistical jackass all the time. And the sex scenes were plenty damn hot as well. My only wish for this story was that it was longer, so we could get learn more about Mitch's background. But an overall enjoyable story.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
