Rough


Rocklyn Ryder - 2017
     Maddison: Stone's bad news. Everything I know about him tells me he's a bad decision. He drinks too much, parties too hard, and in the years he's been our neighbor I've never heard him mention the same woman twice. He's not happily ever after material by a long shot, but I can't help but think that Stone Caldwell knows how to bend a girl over a desk. Stone: Maddie's watching me with that careful stare that she's been fixing me with for the last couple of hours. If I didn't know better I'd call it a good, old-fashioned eye-f*ck but I'm pretty sure that's just wishful thinking on my part. I'm no where near drunk. I might have had a little buzz going on there for a minute, which is probably why I started telling her all that stuff about missed connections and how I feel like...well it doesn't matter how I feel now. I should take her home. I should not take her out to the ranch, and I sure as hell should not do any of the filthy things that keep popping into my brain. *** ROUGH features a complete story with no cheating (I promise) and a guaranteed happy ending for one reformed bad boy turned cattle rancher and the free spirited woman that he almost let get away.

I will definitely read anything she writes!" - Runner10, Goodreads "This is the first book I've read by Melinda Di Lorenzo and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
