The Day he Kissed Her - Juliana Stone

Mac Draper finally has everything he’s always wanted: An amazing career. A New York City apartment. He’s this close to being free of his past forever. But a mind-blowing encounter with the sexy yet tough-as-nails Lily St. Clare has him delaying his plans to put Crystal Lake in his rearview mirror for good.

For Lily St. Clare the charming small town of Crystal Lake is her haven – a place she can hide from her famous, back-stabbing family. It’s as close to happy as she’s ever been. Until an unforgettable night with tall, dark and tortured Mac Draper gives her a glimpse of what true happiness feels like.

Lily can’t help but melt a little under the sizzling heat of Mac’s touch. But Mac’s scars run deep, and Lily’s afraid she may be falling for the one man who can never return her feelings...

My thoughts:
Mac and Lily gets their story here, and the last one of the Bad Boys are caught. But it works well as a stand alone.

Mac has demons a plenty. He grew up in a abusive household and thinks he will end up like his dad. I felt for him cos he so believed he would turn out bad, poor guy.

Lily grew up rich in a well known family. Her sister screwed her over, her brother died. And she is just trying to be herself and get her own life.

So two people with issues who think they can just start a fling and walk away. But you can't walk away when you start falling in love. So that the "drama" part.

Mac did say something effed up that made me mad. But I forgave him cos those demons in his head messed with him. Still not cool man.

Conclusion:
A romance that builds and a passion that stays.

  3. Oh, I love female characters that is tough-as-nails :) I don't remember the last time I read a romance now, I think the last one might have been the first book in Nalini Singh's Psy Changeling series, and that it as least a couple of years ago. Might be time for a good story with some passion in it soon.

    Is this the third novel in a series or is this the last book of three in total?
