Series: DeMarco Men, book #1
This is the story of Colton DeMarco and Lila Walker. I honestly must say – I LOVED this book. I read it until my iPad died and couldn’t wait for it to charge to finish it. From someone that usually reads paranormal erotica, this was a wonderful change of pace that kept my attention. Great writing with characters that were real and very well developed -- the sex was hott, and the door was opened for more to come from the DeMarco men.
The main dilemma is that Lila is older than Colton. As a recent widow in a small town where no woman wanted her close to their man, Lila is struggling to come to grips with her new life. She only had eyes for her husband, even after he couldn’t meet all of her needs, but when Colton dropped by to ask her husband for a favor, sparks flew and a deck was christened awakening a lust and a love that grew quickly and easily. Of course, guilt abounds for both Lila and Colton. She is contending with the town gossips, the overbearing mother-in-law, and the grief of losing the love of her life while Colton is dealing with grief of his own for his sister, running a family business with his brothers, and taking on the heavy task of raising his now orphaned nephew. New to the single life after years of being married and raising a family, Lila thinks this was a one-time thing, but Colton has dreamed of her for years and shows that real men still know how to woo a lady. Together they find a love neither thought would happen. In her he finds that the woman of his dreams is very real and for her, she finds that lightning can strike twice especially in matters of the heart.
The story has several twists and turns that kept this book fast paced and interesting. I honestly, couldn’t put the book down. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good old fashioned love story with a true to life happily ever after. I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review, but I would absolutely buy this author’s work again and again.
