I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job.
I quit going out to find that random piece of ass.
Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.
She hates me, loathes me even.
Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.
I’m not giving up.
I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.
No matter what!
Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand.
It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest.
Drinking, talking and flirting.
One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying.
My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground.
Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.
He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.
Jude Westbrooke not only hurt me with words he can never take back, but he ruined my traitorous body for another man.
Jude continues where Riddick left off, so if you haven't read the first book in The Saints series, I recommend you read that first. Jude could be read as a stand alone but these are a close group knit of men and a family and to get the broader picture of the lives of Jude and Vivian read Riddick first with Cora and Riddick's story and Jude and Vivian's involvement and how it has lead to their story.
Jude is a narcotics cop ex forces along with his friends Riddick and Tyson. Alpha males with big hearts but all at some point in there lives have women problems.
Riddick is now facing his happily ever after but Jude, oh Jude messed up big time with Vivian.
"I'm claiming what should have been mine all along. Stand back and enjoy the ride , people, because I'm about to show her the man she walked away from."
Jude completely redeems himself in this book and just when you think Vivian and Jude are on there way to steady ground it becomes a read with suspense and mystery when Jude begins to get threats and the guys begin to investigate the stalker that has become desperate and protection and high alert is in order for Jude who wants to protect his girl.
Jude lost Vivian once he has no intention's of letting her go again.
Another brilliant, hot and intense read yet again from Kathy Coopmans, I love these guys and with tasters of Tyson's love life and his heartache I am also looking forward to that too.
