his chance to claim what’s his.”
School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything
resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent.
But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends
begin plying Marcy with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun
doesn’t sound like a bad idea… and having some naughty fun is an even better one.
Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very

After years of waiting in painful silence, police officer Aaron Robinson
finally has Marcy’s attention. And man, does he have

“This does mean something.”
Considering the length of this novella, the characters were well developed and
there are a couple of steamy sex scenes. Best of all, we get a heart touching
epilogue. This would have been a five star read if we had just a bit more of
this book…as I said it wasn’t lacking, but I would have liked to see more of
Aaron, Marcy, and Clare interacting.
