Overview

A "smoking hot"* erotic romance novel that will have you up all night...

Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it.

Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.

What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.

“The sweet, smoking hot, standout erotic romance you’ve been craving.”—*New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Starting a new job to be close to her reckless sister, Erin Coffey is the newest licensed practical nurse at Larkhaven’s psychiatric ward, the mental illness unit of a Michigan hospital. Among the staff is orderly Kelly Robak, a hulking muscle of a man whose brute strength coupled with persistent calm keep the staff and patients safe. Kelly is interested in Erin, but she is leery to start a relationship with a coworker, especially when she learns that what is on the table is not a relationship at all but a few days of mind-blowing sex. And what Kelly desires requires his having all the control while Erin becomes his submissive. Erin has had a preview of what’s in store but has always played it safe. She may be able to give up control for a weekend but worries about what it will cost her heart in the long run.

Verdict Since the Fifty Shades phenomenon, there has been an abundance of substandard erotica diluting the genre, but McKenna’s (Exposure) After Hours stands out for its depth of characterization. The complexities, story line, and pulsating heat will keep readers immersed.—Kara Kohn, Plainfield P.L. Dist., IL
