He's driving her crazy...
Piper West is finally on her own, and it's time to get crazy. Except that her overprotective big bro has enlisted his ex-cop best friend to keep an eye on his baby sister. With every move monitored and reported back, Piper's life has gone from "going crazy" to "being driven crazy." But a searing-hot kiss with her sexy and scarred watchdog is just the game-changer she needs...
Cole Black owes Piper's brother big-time, but there's nothing easy about his new assignment. Piper is all feisty sexiness and curves meant to tempt a man beyond reason, and Cole can't stop himself. Now he's caught up in a hunger like nothing he's ever known, and he can't get enough...
Even if Piper's the one girl he's not allowed to have.
Piper West’s road to independence hasn’t been more smoothly paved, now that her sister and best friend have moved out and into their new lives with their other halves. Except for the tiny thorn in her arse called Cole Black, the guy she’s always wanted and will always want.
But being the (most) deluded male that the men of Sherilee Gray’s very excellent Axle Alley series tend to be, Cole’s struggle with survival guilt somehow extends to everything else in his life, especially Piper and proves to be the only major obstacle that neither can really overcome. The cramp in Piper’s style – and the final straw – comes from her overbearing big brother, who insists that Cole watches over her, a move that inadvertently turns both Cole and Piper both into drooling, straining idiots whose clothes you know will eventually get shredded when the tension finally boils over.
It’s hard not to like sassy, spunky Piper, whose hilarious ways of pushing her brother’s best friend over the edge made me laugh and cheer for her, even if this is a well-worn trope that has been employed till kingdom come. That never-say-die, indefatigable hope that she’s full of (and not appearing too needy while at it) won me over immediately and while Cole’s tortured ways do yank some emotional chains, I must say again, that the girls, in Sherilee Grey’s universe, come out top.
