Patience McKinnon has never even tried to live up to her unfortunate name. Her sisters would gladly point out that she’s impetuous, fickle, and stubborn to a fault. History has taught her that she’s the only one, besides those crazy sisters, that has her best interests at heart…and she’s not about to let down her guard and let herself get hurt. She did that once…and that was more than enough. Next time, she’s fairly certain that she’d rather just shoot first and ask questions later, thank you very much!
But that one night may just change both of their worlds…forever. Will Patience overcome her insecurities? And will Abel ever convince her to trust him again?
Join the entire town of Paradise and the intrepid McKinnon sisters in this humorous and poignant erotica romance! Standalone.
“Their writing is steamy, ridiculously funny, and highly entertaining, yet also insightful and observant. I have loved each book in the Paradise series…” ~ Books and Binding
“I LOVED this book. The characters of Patience (maybe by name but definitely NOT by nature) and Abel had me crying with laughter at times throughout this book. And Patience’s one liners and insults to Abel were just fabulous.”~ Goodreads Reviewer
Patience McKinnon has had enough drama in her life to have a tv show but it’s not like she can stop it from happening..I mean she has 3 sisters!! It’s bound to happen!! Patience is the sister with the mouth. The one that will take down anyone with it and makes most grown men cry. Except for one, Abel Turner, the one man that won’t back down, no matter what she says! He just doesn’t seem to get that what happened three years ago WILL NEVER happen again. This is HER life and she will NEVER let a man close to her again. He had his chance and he ruined it worse than a burnt cake on your birthday and all the bakeries are closed! But her life is never easy and obstacles are always showing up to change all of her plans!
Abel has been trying hard for the last three years to prove to Patience that he is sorry for what happened and wants a do over, even if she did tell the whole town how bad he “performs.” He can’t get her out of his head and he knows that there is more than just sex involved after he finally wears her down one night but convincing her of that it is a WHOLE different story! Not mention that someone is leaving them threatening notes and God decided to open a can of whoop ass on Abel by giving something to Patience that will take nine months to “get rid of.” What’s a man to do?
This book was beyond hilarious!! I laughed out loud soooo many times with the things that would come out of Patience and her sisters’ mouths! I would have to say though that the dialogue could get kind of lengthy at times. Sometimes I just wanted to tape Patience’s mouth closed and tell her stop talking but I think Abel handled it well! There was definitely some drama and tears in this book and I was soooo nervous towards the end!! I think I bit off all of my nails at least twice!! I’m pretty excited about the next book, but have to love Abel and Patience for awhile first!!
