This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Warning: This is one dark, dangerous, dirty-talking, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. Are you ready?
I’ve got a big c*ck, a bigger bank account, and zero interest in Happily Ever After. I just want to feel alive, to look into a woman’s eyes and see something that’s going to keep my mind off all the s**t I refuse to think about for an hour or two.
And then I meet her, a good girl with a body made for sin and ugly problems only a bad man can fix.
A bad man like me…
Gabe Alexander is the devil. Or an angel.
He’s a criminal hiding behind a million dollar pedigree, but he also saved my life and my family. He’s the worst kind of bad news, but every time he touches me, and whispers filthy, beautiful things in my ear, all I want is more.
More of his kiss, his touch, and the dangerous, seductive things he makes me feel.
I don’t want to go bad, but the man makes it feel so damned good…
Warning Part the Second: A Love So Dangerous is the first in a three part series. It is a full-length novel that ends in a cliffhanger. It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.
Being Bad Never Looked So Good
Caitlin Cooney's life has changed dramatically. Gabe Alexander has opened her eyes to a completely different world the night that they spent together at the beginning of the summer. Making her his accomplice in his quest to right wrongs in their South Carolina town, and drawing her into the explosive chemistry between them, he has awakened her and left her dissatisfied with the life that she has been living up to this point.
Caitlin just wants to get back to her normal life, working and taking care of her family. She is determined that there not be a repeat of what happened between them, but finds herself more and more deeply drawn to Gabe. And when Gabe sweetens the deal, making it impossible for her to say no to him, she agrees to be with him just for the summer.
Gabe knows just how to get Caitlin to agree to spend time with him, but is hiding a big secret from her. He didn't count on coming to care for her as deeply as he does, and, as the summer progresses, he faces some hard choices where she is concerned.
Lili Valente is great at character development. Caitlin is sassy and independent, having had to handle some very tough things in her young life, and Gabe is just delicious. He is smart and hot, and goes from simply wanting Caitlin to wanting to give her everything. The chemistry between Caitlin and Gabe is super-hot; they start out being very attracted to each other, but the attraction quickly deepens to much more as the story progresses. A LOVE SO DANGEROUS made me think of a sort of take on 'Robin Hood,' with a whole lot of hot and sexy scenes. The story does end on a cliff-hanger, but not in an abrupt way. Lili has done a good job of bringing everything together and setting us up for the continuation of Caitlin's and Gabe's journey in A LOVE SO DEADLY, the next book in the series, and I can't wait to see where they go.
Wow, that is all I can say about A Love So Dangerous. The title says it all. Just when you think you have everything figured out, Lili Valente throws a curve ball and your spun into an emotional roller coaster. Gabe and Caitlin are just perfect together. Lust, love, darkness, edginess are just some of the things you'll feel when your reading it. Their relationship is not the norm but then again their courtship has not been one as well. One summer, that is what they have promised one another. But what happens when the heart wants more?
Danger lurks in the shadows, the aftermath of Caitlin and Gabe's activities. Although their illegal activities were done for justice, in the end it awakens a monster. A monster that will not stop until Caitlin and Gabe pay.
As always, job well done Lili!! Can't wait for A Love So Deadly, the continuing story of Gabe and Caitlin.
I love Gabe and Caitlin! Don't miss this one!
The writing is absolutely outstanding! Lili Valente can write anything. A Love So Dangerous is sexier, darker and hotter with an extremely different plot twist.
This is a unique story of Caitlin and Gabe. On her birthday she decides she needs a night out. She goes out dancing and is approached by Gabe, a hot sexy guy who's looking for something different than his normal dates. There's heat, there's a smokin' connection and there's recognition! I think saying it's a wild night is a bit of an understatement!
Caitlin is taking care of her brothers and niece and trying to earn enough money to keep their house and feed her family. Gabe can't forget about the one night they spent together so he has a proposition for her that she can't say no to. They agree to spend the summer together and their lust quickly turns into something deeper. I was sucked into the story from the beginning and couldn't put it down. Gabe is so effing sexy and dangerous with just enough of a dirty mouth! Caitlin is beautiful and caring and can't help but fall for him. They have major obstacles and there is a cliffhanger. I laughed and I cried and I can't wait to see how their story plays out.
This is a memory I want to keep for the rest of my life. This is one of the pictures I want to flash before my eyes when I'm fighting for my final breath.
And then I see him, Gorgeous Gabe, leaning against the weathered bricks of Harry's Diner, his jagged brown hair hanging so delicious in wrinkled black jeans and a whisper-thin gray tee shirt it should be illegal. The moment our eyes meet, his full lips draw into a grin that promises the best kind of trouble, and something breaks inside me.
