Author: Sarah O’Rourke
Genre: Erotic Romance Comedy
Release Date: October 13, 2015

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!

Enter Abel Turner. The suave town attorney has had Patience McKinnon in his sights for years. Sure, he strayed along the way, but he’s always come back to the beautiful blonde bartender that fills his dreams and drives him crazy at the same time. After all, he owes her…and he plans to rectify the bad impression he made in the past with a humdinger of a sensual night.

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

“Give me ten minutes to audition for you and I’ll change your mind. I promise you’ll want the entire performance after you see what I can offer,” he whispered provocatively, trailing one lean hand up and down the curve of her waist.

“I don’t do reruns. I’m strictly a one penis, one performance kind of girl,” she muttered as much to remind herself of that harsh fact as to share it with him. “You should understand, I learned that lesson from watching you. Don’t go back.  Ever. It’s in the Abel Turner playbook.” She lifted her face to his, her eyes challenging him to fault her logic. Or break his own rules.

“Patience, this isn’t going to be a repeat for either of us. This is a whole new show,” Abel declared, his hand sliding back to her ass and pulling her closer to him.

“Same pretentious penis, same pompous play, Abel,” Patience returned dismissively, fighting the pull she felt toward him with every fiber of her being. “I’ve seen this episode; believe me, it will end in tears. Yours.”

“Thank God I’m not a man lacking self-confidence, Hellion. Otherwise, you’d be hell on my ego,” Abel groaned, burying his face in the crook of her neck while one arm contracted around her waist, holding her tightly.  

“Oh, no. Your self-confidence is unmatched,” Patience muttered, still squirming between his hard body and the wall. “It’s your self-control that needs work.” Lifting her eyes to Abel’s she narrowed her eyes to slits. “You’re not getting this, Abel, and you really need to get me here. Since all the blood in your body seems to have gotten diverted to your dick, I’m gonna speak real slow and in terms that even Dr. Seuss could understand, okay?”

Waiting for a second, she watched one perfectly shaped eyebrow lift on his handsome face in silent askance. “I will not fuck you in the hall. I will not fuck you against this wall. You should really be a better learner. I will not fuck you, Abel Turner.”

Sarah O’Rourke is FAST becoming a favorite of mine!!! Definitely a one-clicker!!!

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!!
