A sexy new STANDALONE contemporary romance in the Lawless Kings series.
People say Tomas Mendoza is dangerous.
But he saved my life.
I owe him, and all I have to repay the ruthless crime boss…is me. I tell myself it’s not pity that burns in his eyes when I dance for him, that my walls are so high he can’t see how broken I am inside.
Now danger stalks me again, and Tomas swoops in, only this time he shows me a different side of himself. Fierce protectiveness. Raw hunger. A tenderness that could sear through the barriers I raised to safeguard my heart and soul.
My past taught me not to trust. But this glorious sinner might be the one man I need to learn to love again.
I was staring at my laptop, trying and failing to work, when a light knock hit my office door. I knew who it was, and when she pushed open the door and walked in, I knew why she was seeking me out, what she wanted.
What she needed.
Even if she didn’t.
She was wearing that same robe I’d seen her in earlier. It was hanging open, shorts and what looked like a tank on underneath.
“You’re still up,” she said, walking in.
I sat back in my chair, not even trying to hide how hard I was, fucking hoping she’d see it, realize how on edge I was, and run the other way. “What’s going on, Steph?”
She shrugged. “I couldn’t sleep.” She looked around the office as she moved to the other side of the desk. “I thought I’d see if you were still awake. If you wanted to maybe watch a movie?”
I should humor her, pretend just like she was, but that was impossible, especially tonight. I’d been gentle with her for twelve months, given her space. Maybe that was the problem. Maybe I’d given her too much space. So I shook my head. “That’s not why you’re here.”
She stilled, biting down on her lip, eyes getting wider. “What?”
“Watching a movie isn’t what you want, Angel. That’s not why you’re in my office.”
“No…I…” She trailed off because she knew I was right and she couldn’t lie to herself or me about that fact now that I’d called her out.
She was hot and needy, she wanted what she knew I could give her, and she was scared of it at the same time. Ryan had fucked her up in ways I could never understand, but I wasn’t going to let him take this from her, from us.
“Come here, Stephanie.”
She blinked, frozen like a deer in headlights.
I held her gaze. “You trust me?”
I sat there waiting for her to make her decision. She stared back at me for the longest time, then finally, fucking finally, she started toward me. When she reached my side, I took her hand, bringing it to my lips, pressing a kiss to her trembling fingers then the inside of her wrist. “When was the last time you had an orgasm, Angel?”
Sherilee Gray is a kiwi girl and lives in beautiful New Zealand with her husband and their two children. When she isn't writing sexy, edgy contemporary romance, searching for her next alpha hero on Pinterest, or fueling her voracious book addiction, she can be found dreaming of far off places with a mug of tea in one hand and a bar of Cadburys Rocky Road chocolate in the other.
From the moment his eyes landed on her beautiful face Tomas Mendoza fell hard for Stephanie Gable, but with her delicate age, and his less than stellar reputation, he decided it was best to keep his distance. But then one night when he witnesses her boyfriend being a little rough with her at a party, he decides to make it his mission to keep her safe, so he intervenes, and makes her promise to seek him out if she ends up in trouble again. On one hand he hoped she'd never call, knowing it would mean she was in danger, but on the other hoping it would reunite them, and keep him in her life in some small facet.
But when the call comes late one night, nothing could have prepared him for what he found, finding her lifeless body darn near crushed him, but he got her the help she needed, and promised once again to keep her safe. But unfortunately her ex has decided to not let her live a peaceful life, and begins to terrorize her again, but this time Tomas isn't letting him get close enough to do damage, even if it means moving her into his home, and keeping her by his side. Knowing this could lead them to a place they have both wanted to be for so long now... and fully aware it could change everything!
Glorious Sinner brings us into the lives of Tomas and Stephanie, and right out of the gate this highly emotional and gut-wrenching story line hits you deep, and leaves you in complete agony; you can't help but feel for these wounded souls. Barely two chapters into it, and I felt my heart start to crack, the pain endured by Stephanie spoke to me on a level I understood all too well, but I held out hope that the words would bring her the happiness... and they did in the form of an uber sexy protector determined to give her a better life. (Swoon!) I have absolutely loved every one of the books in the series, but this one struck a special cord with me, and for that reason, and so many more, I have say it has claimed the top spot as my favorite! I highly recommend you make time to read this one, you won't be disappointed with what you find!
I requested an advanced copy of this title, and I am leaving my honest opinion.
