NEW RELEASE REVIEW - Unlawful Desire (ALFA PI #2) by Chelle Bliss


Title: Unlawful Desire 
Series: ALFA PI Book #2

No matter how hard I tried to push her away, fate thrust us together again.

Screw relationships. My motto: Hit it and quit it. Simple worked. Feelings weren’t on the line, hearts weren’t able to be broken, and I could keep my life simple. My friends told me to move on and find the “one,” but I wasn’t ready to love again.

Until I met her.

A dirty-mouthed temptress with a killer body that had me questioning everything. I knew I could ruin her forever, but not without losing myself. I wouldn’t do it. But Georgia Phillips was innocent, pure, and total perfection. I wouldn’t be the one to strip her bare and break her heart. I swore I’d never call another woman mine, but that was before I almost lost her.

Warning: If you can't handle a cocky bad boy or a badass chick with a dirty mouth, this might not be the book for you.

This book in the series seemed a lot more fun and relaxed when compared to the first book (Sinful Intent). I loved the chemistry and banter between Frisco and Georgia. Sure he's not looking to settle down, it wasn't all that long ago that he dumped his cheating fiance. There's some back and forth between him and Georgia; he's all weirded out by the difference in their ages (she's 22 and he's 31). 

Try as he might, Frisco can't ignore the chemistry between them, although when she drops the big bombshell, Frisco is ready to run far away. Luckily Georgia talks some sense into him and we get to watch as their relationship develops. There isn't much in the way of suspense with this book; the only oddity is the whole accident issue. I felt like that could have played out way differently than it did, like with Frisco's former fiance being the reason it happened. Or something to mix up the story a bit.

Even with the lack of true suspense, I still enjoyed this book. But I can't wait until we finally get Bear's story. I have a feeling his book might tug at the heartstrings, given the little bit of information we learn about him in this story.

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

Unlawful Desire Excerpt

She leaned back against the bar with her tits jutting out and her arms crossed underneath. 
“What’s your problem with me? Did I do something to you, Frisco?” 
Caught off guard by her question, my body jerked backward. “N-no,” I stuttered. She tapped her foot. “You ditched me, marched off when you heard my age, and tonight, you seem less than happy that I’m here. What the fuck gives?” 
I cleared my throat, trying to find my voice and a reasonable explanation. “I don’t have anything against you.” I was in so much trouble. 
“Let’s cut the shit, Frisco. I’m a big girl. What’s the problem? Would you rather I leave?” Her body oozed attitude. I cringed. I never wanted to hurt anyone, but I knew that I had hurt her feelings. “No. Don’t go. I’m sorry. It’s just that Sunshine…” My chest tightened. “She’s trying to fix us up.” Georgia filled her cheeks with air before slowly exhaling. “Is that so bad?” She narrowed her eyes. “If I’m not your type, it’s cool. But otherwise, what’s the issue? I thought we had a nice time up until you left the party. I’m a big girl. Just be honest with me. I’m not into playing games.” 
I wanted to play games. Naked games that ended with us against a wall, tangled together like we’d played the sexiest game of Twister.
