Are you a workaholic? Type A personality? Someone who doesn't know how to let go?
I suppose it takes one to know one. I'm certainly one and I can identify with the heroine in Mindy McKinley's latest romance, SHELTER ME. Jenna has set a goal for herself and she's not going to let anyone distract her...even a sexy photographer who wants to show her a good time.
Jenna and Luke sizzle on the pages as he tries to get her to have some fun but Jenna knows exactly where fun will take her... not to a good place. This story is the first in a four book new series which each features a sexy Baxter brother. You will want to grab ahold of your own copy!
Photographing pets may be the way into her heart….but this veterinarian-in-training is determined not to let a man derail her life.
Studying to be a veterinarian, vet tech Jenna Howard has little time for anything other than school and her work at Chicago Pet Rescue shelter. With no support to fall back on and a mother who is determined to pull her down, Jenna can’t afford to step out of line. Even a night of promised adventure from the hottest bachelor in town isn’t enough to pull her out of her routine.
Newly famous photographer Luke Baxter finds himself enjoying his role as the most eligible bachelor in Chicago. But when he wanders into Chicago Pet Rescue to shoot a fund-raising calendar, and meets the adorably feisty Jenna Howard, everything changes. He’s gotten so used to ‘yes’ that Jenna’s ‘no’ takes him by surprise. Suddenly she’s all he can think about. She’s gorgeous, smart, impossibly difficult to read, and he’ll do almost anything—even adopt a puppy—to make her realize that taking a chance on him doesn’t have to mean giving up on her dreams.
Can he convince her that life isn’t worth living without a little fun?
Before she knew what was happening, Luke had taken her hand, whisked her down a small alley, and pushed her up against the wall. She couldn’t breathe. The feel of his solid body against hers was so delicious, she had to fight the urge to wrap her legs around his waist.
“Jenna.” His voice huskier than it had been before. He pressed into her, and it made her shiver with desire. “I’ve wanted to kiss you for so long now. Since the first time I saw you.”
She watched his mouth, burning with need, and whispered, “Then fucking do it already.”
With a growl, he closed the distance and crushed his mouth to hers. She could feel his kiss everywhere in her body as he coaxed her lips apart so expertly that her tongue was sliding against his within seconds.
She heard a whimper escape her but didn’t care, Luke was kissing her, and that was all that mattered. Her head spun as his large hands slid up her neck, teasing the ache she had been feeling for so long. She wanted to feel his hands on her breasts, moving inside of her, everywhere.
He kissed her. He kissed her so desperately, so thoroughly that she was panting for air but unwilling to stop. When he slid his hands through her hair and tugged gently on her ponytail, she thought she might explode from want. Shockingly hot images of him pulling her hair from behind made her gasp.
He pulled his lips away from hers but only after several minutes. And even then, he kept his body against hers. She could feel his arousal pressing into her. Gazing into her eyes, Luke’s warm hand still cradling her cheek, he just grinned and said, “Yeah, I’m going to need a hell of a lot more of that.”
