Peek Inside Take Me

For Mike Worth, red always means run, but after one night with sexy Vegas showgirl, redheaded Morgan Collins, his libido is breaking every rule in the Commitmentphobe Handbook. Still, their chemistry—amongst other more x-rated things—is definitely worth a risky round two. But after a sexy drunken night on the town, Morgan and Mike awaken to the shock of their lives. Because for better or for worse, they're now husband and wife...

It’s all fun and sexy games…until someone gets married.

Some women are more dangerous than others. For me, it’s like a stoplight. Green means go. Yellow is proceed with caution. And red? Red means you’d best run like hell, because that woman is gonna be serious trouble. The red hair on that hot little Vegas showgirl should be my warning, but I’m a sucker for breaking the rules…

Morgan Collins is a dancer with a body meant to bring a grown man to his knees, and keep him there. Yet I can’t resist the sexual attraction—intense, fierce as hell, and red-fucking-hot. But I won’t let myself get burned after one night of booze and lust. All I have to do is walk away. Except when I wake up the next morning, Morgan is my wife…and all hell is about to break loose.

Previously released on the Ever After imprint in August 2013

Remember when I reviewed Play Me (You know two weeks ago LOL) by Diane Alberts? I was on the fence because I wasn't thrilled with the heroine.. she rather drove me nuts?
