An Off-Limits Romance Standalone
Heat Level: HOT
This was a very sexy, fun second chance romance!
Marley moves back home to her small hometown of Fate, Alabama to be closer to her ailing mom. Yes that’s right, the town is called Fate, appropriately named for the theme of this book. Surprise, surprise she ends up renting the floor in a house right above her ex-husband Gabe. Their marriage ended on a really bad note and so this sort of read as a enemies to lovers as well.
I really loved the beginning and the end of this book but the middle sort of fell flat. From their initial meeting, I loved the bickering and all the snide comments between Gabe and Marley. The humor was great in this part of the book.
Marley was a great heroine. She knew what she wanted and she went after it. She makes a proposal to Gabe and he takes her up on it. From here their attraction is undeniable and this book takes on a serious level of sexy. This was definitely a HOT book and while they were well done, I thought there were maybe a tad bit too many steamy scenes.
Gabe has some serious issues that he has to deal with and it takes him a while to figure out his feelings for Marley. However once he does, he turns into this swoon worthy hero who I would have fell in love with if he was like that for the entire book instead of showing up right at the end.
Overall, this was a nice second chance romance that had its brief moments of great humor and romantic swoon and lots of steamy hot scenes.
