Description du produit
Cam sighed but gave in. “Fine. You want a cup of tea?”
I nodded and followed him into his kitchen, trying to keep my eyes on anything but his muscled shoulders and tight ass. I didn’t try very hard.
Standing by his kitchen counter, I was lost in thought about the evening ahead of us as Cam made the tea and coffee, when I caught movement out of the corner of my eye. I glanced toward it and nearly had full-on heart failure at the size of the spider clinging to Cam’s kitchen tiles.
“Oh, my God!” I squealed, skittering back away from it, a lump of fear in my throat the size of Canada.
“What—what?” Cam spun around, his eyes wide on me.
I stared round-eyed at the spider. “Get rid of it or I won’t be able to move.” I wasn’t kidding. I was literally frozen with fear. I don’t know where my phobia of spiders originated, but it was bad enough that we had to invest in spider repellents that plugged into the sockets in our flat.
We got the rare few spiders nevertheless and Cole always took care of them.
Cam looked from me to the spider and then back to me again. I could see the beginning of a smile start to curl the corners of his mouth.
“Don’t even think about laughing. It’s not funny.”
His gaze softened as he seemed to finally realize the extent of my fear. “Okay. Stop panicking.
I’ll get rid of it.” He reached into a cupboard and pulled out a pan.
I scowled. “What are you doing? Don’t kill it!”
Cam froze, cocking his head in bemusement as he gazed at me. “Why don’t you want me to kill it? I thought you were frightened of it.”
“I am terrified of it.” I corrected him. “But what does it say about humans as a species if we go around killing things just because we fear them?” Not anything good, that’s what.
Cam’s gorgeous eyes warmed even more and I found myself forgetting the fear and falling into his gaze.
“What?” I whispered, feeling my chest swell at the way he was looking at me. No one had ever looked at me like that before.
He shook his head. “Nothing. You just . . . Nothing.”
He blinked a little rapidly before pinning the spider with his gaze. “Right.” He lifted the lid of the pan. “I’m not killing it. I just needed something to put it in.”
As he rescued the spider from me and me from the spider, I crammed myself into the corner of the kitchen, scared that Cam wouldn’t move quickly enough and the spider would somehow launch itself across the room at me. I had no reason to fear. Cam had the spider in the pan in record time and I watched with growing relief as he took it to the kitchen window and deposited it outside.
“Thank you,” I breathed.
Cam didn’t reply. Instead he shut the window carefully, put the pan by the sink, and turned around to gaze at me.
Suddenly the air felt electric between us, like it always did while we worked side by side at the bar. I’d done my darndest to make sure those moments were confined to the bar, trying to feign ordinary interaction outside in the real world.
Today there would be no feigning.
I held my breath at the intensity in Cam’s eyes as he slowly began to make his way toward me.
When he closed the distance that would be considered socially acceptable between two friends who both had partners, I was just about to question him, stall him, but then my breasts brushed his chest and the words got sucked right back into my mouth along with all the air in the room. I felt his hands in a gentle embrace around my upper arms, his aftershave familiar and intoxicating, and the heat of his body made mine languid. I hadn’t been able to meet his eyes, and so I was looking at his throat when he leaned in and pressed the sweetest kiss to my forehead. A yearning, deep and expanding, burst open in my chest and I melted into him, feeling his lips chase a delicious shiver across my skin. He replaced his mouth with his own forehead. I closed my eyes as he closed his and we rested against one another, breathing each other in. I was filled with such longing, a longing only intensified because I knew it was reciprocated.
“Cam,” I whispered, wanting him to pull away and needing him to never leave.
He groaned and gently slid his forehead down the side of mine, his nose skimming my cheek, following my jaw, and coming to rest in a nuzzle against my throat.
I held my breath, waiting.
His hot lips touched the skin there. One brush. Two.
And then I felt the wet, erotic touch of tongue and I shuddered, falling against him. My nipples pebbled against my thin shirt, begging him to go further.
A sharp, piercing ringtone shattered the air between us and I jerked back, coming to my senses.
Cam cursed, his jaw clenched so tight it was close to shattering. He reached for his phone on the counter beside us and then blanched as he read the caller ID. He shot me an unfathomable look.
“Becca,” he stated grimly.--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

This extraordinary debut combines a true gift for storytelling with a liberal dose of racy encounters. But what really sets it apart is exquisite characterisation, so vivid that the cast seeps into the reader's psyche (Daily Record)

Je n'avais pas vraiment accroché avec Jo dans le tome précédent, et là, tout le talent de Samantha Young est de nous la révéler, afin de la voir réellement. La rencontre avec Cam est en ce sens assez similaire avec la perception que j'avais initialement eu de Jo, autrement une bimbo qui se cherche des hommes riches et profite d'eux...
Mais là, on ne peut que changer d'avis. Jo est réellement complexe, à la fois forte et faible. La voir se débattre avec ses sentiments pour Cam, rechercher le meilleur pour son frère, et penser qu'elle ne vaut rien, m'a vraiment touché.
Quant à Cam... Une fois qu'il aura compris son erreur de jugement sur Jo, il va tout faire pour elle, et pour l'aider à se voir telle qu'elle est réellement, et pfff... je suis définitivement accro aux Écossais! Que ce soit en kilt ou non^^
C'est romantique et sexy en diable, et la tension entre Cam et Jo est juste magnifique. Bref, j'ai aimé revoir Joss et Braden, et découvrir Olivia et Nate pour le prochain tome! Et surtout assister à cette magnifique histoire entre Jo et Cam.

I loved this book so much and Brendan is a alpha male in all his glory....... He can compete with Gideon Cross and Christian Grey.
This is a story about how a person can learn to only depend on oneself because you're left alone with no one to care for you. When you get used to depending on yourself it's hard to let anyone else in and care for you.
The story is so soul wrenching, it's like someone took a knife to my soul and opened it up. I felt so close to the characters it was almost scary.
All the anxiety and feelings Joss is struggling with comes very close in the way the author describes it, if you never had a anxiety attack before you will be closer to understand how it is by reading this book. Because I know what it's like to have anxiety attacks I feel very connected to the character.
I love the writing style because it's light and fun without messing with the serious issues in the story. I laughed, scowled and cried of this book.
This author is now on my list of favourites. If you haven't read this one I recommend it strongly.
The prologue had me from the get go and from the moment I met, I mean Jocelyn met Braden I was swooning. I was still new to the whole alpha male characters when reading this story and YES Braden Carmichael made me fall in love with that type of character. He was domineering and possessive, but always kind and loving with Jocelyn.
Poor Jocelyn had suffered so much in life, so it was hard for her to let her walls down and get close to someone.
This book had passion, sexiness, love and heartache. I loved every single minute of it!!
When it comes to Cam, immediately you could tell things were going to be rocky with these two. I mean he is a flat out a-hole for the first few times they run into one another. Hello First Impressions and Jumping to Conclusions. Boy does she surprise him. And on the contrary, I think he surprised her as well. Threw her totally off balance, which is completely what she needed. She needed those nudges in the right directions. The eye opening sweetness and support. The lovely whispers to offset the insulting self doubt. God. Once Cam opens up , you can't help but fall in love with him.
The narration on this novel was hands down incredible. The narrators, the accents- American and Scottish, I believe there was even a British in there- was fabulous. Though I believe the narrator was Scottish. Either way, since that is where the story took place, it made it so much more realistic. It really brings the story to life and adds that touch of reality. Both the male and female narrators were spectacular. They kept me completely invested in the story through the whole thing. Though that could have also been the amazing storyline and writing style of Samantha Young
Based on all of the great reviews, I was really excited about delving into this book. Ultimately, I thought the book was o.k. Jocelyn and Braden have both gone through painful experiences, but it didn't make me feel a stronger emotional attachment to them. I understand why Jocelyn built a protective layer around her heart, but most of the time she came across as very off-putting. I didn't find anything particularly intriguing about Braden either. I ended up skimming over some of the sex scenes because I didn't care about them as individuals or as a couple.
I was actually more interested in the supporting characters Ellie and her love interest Adam. I thought Ellie was more likeable than Jocelyn and I wished more of her perspective was included in this book. I know that Samantha Young has written another book that focuses on the romance between Ellie and Adam, but I'm not going to bother reading it. I can't bring myself to cough up the money to buy another one of her books after being so disappointed in this one.
