Our Review

Jenny:  This novella needs to come with a warning:  Read whilst sitting in fridge! Ummm….so….gulp…dirty talking James Bowen is back and oh my, hasn’t he ramped up that naughty mouth of his quite the notch since we last spent time with him Gitte? We first met James in Inked Ever After and his dirty talk was pretty hot, then along came Cole Bowen and I thought he was the king of the dirty talkers….but James is baaaaack and wow! I need a minute…..*fans self*

Gitte: James ‘filthy mouth’ Bowen is indeed back and wow…*fanning myself* too…he is so amazingly HOT!! Sure thing Jenny, this novella should definitely come with a warning. Fridge? More like Freezer….

Jenny:  Yep, you’re spot on…freezer it is! This was such a good companion to the Bowen Brothers series and it does compliment the series.  What is there to say about dirty talking (have I mentioned this?) alpha, possessive, hot as hell James Bowen that we haven’t already said before?  Yep, he’s still as alpha and possessive as ever and even more so with his impending marriage to Tate, the love of his life just moments away.

Tate Cooper is deeply in love (and lust) with James, and can’t wait to marry him, but why is she freaking out at the prospect of the big day looming?  Tate has past issues she is still carrying around. Still grieving the loss of her father and brother and feeling completely overwhelmed with everything going on around her.  She is trying to be as happy as she can, hiding her grief, fears and panic attacks from James and he’s giving here space…to a degree.

James, in true James style lets her….well….to put it James’ way “fuck her way out of it” and my, oh my doesn’t he do that well….extremely well it must be said.

He certainly knows how to get her mind off troublesome thoughts, but he knows she’s just masking her issues and at some point they are going to need to confront and sort out the problems plaguing them before the big day.

He needs to think of a way to get Tate to face here fears head on and he decides enough is enough (not sex, ‘cause there would NEVER be enough of that for the insatiable James) and he is going to get his woman to trust him enough to open up and let him help her and to give into him heart and soul.

Gitte: I LOVED catching up with James and Tate in this well written and addictive novella. I pretty much inhaled every word…and not only the filth that came out of James’ mouth hahaha, seriously this guy is LUSH!! No, what I especially loved about this story is to be reminded of how possessive James is, how passionately he loves and how fiercely protective he is of Tate. He would literally do anything for his woman and there is nothing he wouldn’t do to make her feel safe, happy and loved.  He wants his big wedding day, he want to do everything right by Tate.

James knows Tate is weighed down by emotional turmoil. She is indeed hiding something and James goes above and beyond for his woman to get to the bottom of it and make her feel comfortable enough to open up to him. Now, I had a few issues with Tate from More than Meets the Ink and I was worried that this would continue into this one. Well it did for about a few pages in then I understood and she brought tears to my eyes. James is such an amazing man who enables the trust and the faith.

Jenny:  Tate does have to learn to let James in. All the way.  She has given her heart but he wants more and she has to learn to lean on him. Being a born protector he is overwhelmed with the need to protect this woman with every breath he takes. I loved seeing these two come together and become one. How they had to learn together along the way and grow with each other.

As Tate deals with her insecurities and grief, and James finally gets her to open up you know that these two will be okay. Theirs is a love that runs deep. They will prevail. I loved this novella and I loved sharing this time with James and Tate. I can’t wait for more in the Bowen Brothers series.  Yep, love this author’s work!

Gitte: It is not often we get to share a journey with a couple; the ups and downs, only to fall right back in with them and feel that feeling all over again coupled with angst and heightened emotions as to what obstacles may or may not be thrown at them before they reach their happily ever after.

Well, this Author did just that and I have to say, she is without a doubt becoming one of my favourite Authors and I cannot wait for ‘Jack & Elle’s?’ story and of course ‘Max and x’s?’ Bring it on….

Oh and just an FYI….. Elle Aycart….is now a firm favourite!!

Synopsis

Tattooed bad boy James Bowen is about to marry the love of his life. Everything would be perfect if it wasn’t for the tiny detail that his bride-to-be is freaking out big time. And trying to hide it from him.

Tate Cooper is losing it. She loves James with all her heart and wants to be married to him; it’s the getting married that’s killing her. Still grieving the loss of her father and brother,and totally overwhelmed by the wedding arrangements, she’s in full emotional meltdown. But James deserves a happy bride, not a high-maintenance, sorrow-filled, guilt-stricken one, and, by God, she’s going to give him that, even if she has to paste on a smile and fake it till she makes it.

James doesn’t know whether to be amused or pissed. He understands she’s running scared, but there is no way in hell he’s going to allow this to continue; he’s going to push her to confront her fears until she happily embraces their ever after.
