A new sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends.

Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.

The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotional and sexually charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

I have previously read a couple of this author’s books and I think I have to say that she is creeping up the list of my favorite authors.  She knows how to write books that have steamy couples with intense chemistry while also giving them a well rounded life with the dramas of everyday life.  The battles that the two main characters had to overcome help keep the reader interested and also prevented the book from being just another romance novel.  Be forewarned, Crystal has a past sexual trauma that is mentioned throughout the book – so if you are sensitive to that you may want to be prepared.
Crystal has gone through enough pain and suffering to last a lifetime it seems; she has lost loved ones, she is a victim of sexual assault and she has to constantly be put down by her mother.  She just wants to live a normal life and she isn’t sure getting involved with Bear is the best way to live normally.  But, what she didn’t count on was Bear’s persistence.  The more time he spends with Crystal the more he realizes that she is who he wants in life.
I fell in love with Bear’s character.  He has such a dominant, alpha male personality but when he finds out that Crystal has been hurt in the past he puts their physical relationship in her control.  I think the author took great steps to showcase how much he cared for Crystal, and it came through clearly.  He still had his protectiveness and his alpha male, but he could be soft when his woman needs him to be.  I also really liked his brothers – we don’t spend as much time with them as we do with Bear, but we can tell that they are all bred the same way – strong, dominant and possessive.  What woman doesn’t like to read about such a man?  Crystal was everything I wish I could be; she was sassy, strong willed, and independent.  I loved reading of how she put people into place.  Between the two of them, I don’t know if I could come up with a better match.  I loved the environment that she created in Peaceful Harbor and I can’t wait to read more.
