Sammy is in a good place in her life. She’s raised her girls and is a woman on her own. Her ex has remarried and she’s going to his family reunion to reconnect with extended family she’s lost contact with. Who is there but the one man she’s avoided “contact” with her whole life but her former brother-in-law John? He’s the man who has set her on fire her whole life but she married his safe brother. A mistake? Not at the time, since John was a bad boy and heading in a dangerous direction. Now? That remains to be seen.
John wanted Sammy bad when they were kids and would have betrayed his brother to have her. He straightened his life out, walks a straight line now and Sammy is within his reach. This time he won’t let her go without giving them both what they’ve always wanted and wondered about.
Hot and hotter. This appealed to me on so many levels. Dangerous sex outdoors, the bad boy who you let get away, finally finding out what you were missing. A great hot read for an afternoon that will leave you feeling hopeful and happy for Sammy and John and envious as well. And maybe reflecting on your own past choices, too.
There’d been something brewing between John and Sammy twenty years ago when they were teenagers. Only good-girl Sammy had been too afraid of John’s bad boy image. Besides, in those days all he'd wanted was sex. She opted for his safer and more predictable brother, Pat. And when they got married, John disappeared.
They’re reunited during a family reunion, and the years disappear in the blink of an eye. Seeing him now, as the successful, sexy man he's become, reminds Sammy that they're both free to pursue the attraction for each other that had never been fully extinguished. Only giving in to a weekend of hot, anything-goes sex isn't the only thing Sammy faces. She has to come to terms with loving him.
