Sean is a man with needs—needs that a lot of women were ready and willing to fulfill. Yet, the only woman that he wants to fulfill them dumped him for another man. A man who’s a member of his MC and is someone he has to see every single day and twice on Sundays.
He’s bitter and angry. He’s definitely not in the right frame of mind when it comes to dealing with women. Which is unfortunate for his new partner, Naomi, a fresh-out-of-school and totally green paramedic. 
Naomi’s got enough problems on her plate. A brother who’s self-destructive and doesn’t care who he takes down with him. A man who she’s in love with but who doesn’t love her. A job that she hates because it is a constant reminder of what she can’t have.
Desperate to distance herself from her problems, she runs, taking the first job in her field that she finds willing to take on someone with so little experience.
The last thing she needs is a perpetually pissed off partner, especially when he sets her blood on fire.
But life doesn’t ask how much you can handle when it dishes out challenges. It just keeps piling them on until you’ve bested them or you’ve buckled under them.
Sean really doesn’t want to like his new partner, Naomi. He just wants to be left alone to live his life however he damn well pleases and without complications.
Naomi doesn’t care what he wants, she can’t be anything but herself. It isn’t long before she’s breaking down his walls and making him feel again. She’s trying to pull him closer and he’s pushing her away.
It’s not long before Sean sees the error of his ways.
It’s too bad, though, that by the time he realizes she’s the one, Naomi’s already gone.

The beard is everything…
And so are the men behind them! I love this series full of protective, alpha, beard-clad men who love their women with everything they are. All in, no holds barred, everything else falls to the side, love. My heart flutters and my funny bone gets prodded (a lot) in another emotionally-filled outing of the Rejects MC.
“I needed to either bring her into my world, or get rid of her, because I was falling fast. I was falling hard.”
Sean was betrayed by love and he is not having any of it. Not anymore. His crusty, cranky exterior is meant to keep everyone at bay and he succeeds admirably. I couldn’t help liking him anyway with dry wit and humour masking his pain. He just seems to be hangry (all the time). Naomi, on the other hand, is starting over in a new town to recover from her own love life (or lack of one) and the fallout of an accident. It seems that love isn’t in the cards but cupid has a sense of humour too…
They are work partners but grow on each other through each call and each conversation - some serious and others down-right hilarious. Both are wary and the reasons are not trivial even as Naomi strikes the right chord with Sean and their chemistry simmers so deliciously. The work partners to friends to lovers journey is the perfect pace to watch and feel them share, laugh and snark their way through each setback and step forward…
“You don’t have to be crazy to be my friend. I’ll train you.”
With Sean perfecting “cranky” and Naomi poking the bear at every opportunity, when the heat exploded, it was perfect. Their story makes me crave even more from this author and, luckily, there were glimpses on what’s to come. I can’t wait!
“The closest I’ve come to double penetration is eating both Little Debbies at the same time.”



I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
