When lust blindsides a Jersey gal, you know insanity of all kinds is bound to ensue.
Lauren Donovan assesses risk as her life’s work, but avoids it personally—until she reaches her thirty-fifth birthday, when she decides to spend a long weekend in Atlantic City.
Truman Madison gambles for a living, but has never taken a chance on love. When the two literally bump into each other, Lauren knows Tru is the perfect partner for acting out her number one fantasy: sex in the woods, with the exciting possibility of being caught in the act.
While they are having sex, an unknown person steals their clothing. They make the best of it by driving to Tru’s home, naked, where food, drink, and more passion ensue. However, someone interrupts their happy post-sex drowsiness by throwing a rock through a window and slashing Tru’s tires.
Next morning, back in Atlantic City, they make plans to have dinner that night. But a romantic tryst isn’t in the cards—circumstances require Lauren to endanger herself to save Tru’s life. Even so, she’s not ready to risk revealing her emotions, assuming that the two of them are only a fling. But Tru has a way of surprising her, and Lauren comes to realize that she can’t find love without exposing her feelings and risking her heart.
This five-blue-ribbons (Romantic Junkies) story, previously published by Amber Quill Press, is over the top the way that only a torrid, scary, and funny Jersey romance story could be. Go along with Lauren on her wild ride of scorching sex that turns into “Tru” love. After all, what’s not to like?
