STAND ALONE BOOK--NO CLIFFHANGERS---New Adult 92K words / suitable for 18+
AN ALPHA-MALE IN THE MAKING
Josh Turner wants Hannah more than life itself. She's perfect, shiny and new . . . but she's a McIntyre. She's from the richest family in the county, and he's a Turner, from the wrong side of the proverbial tracks. And to make matters worse, there's no love lost between their families.
EXCERPT:
Hannah tried to stay away from the fence that separated the McIntyre and Turner lands. But every afternoon, she climbed on the four-wheeler and drove the fence line. She did this for days and never saw anyone. And then on Friday, she hit pay dirt. Josh was working on the well house that stood twenty feet over the fence line.
He glanced up when he heard the engine and nerves tightened in her stomach as he approached the fence. He came directly in front of her, and stood on the opposite side of the barbed-wire fence, his eyes running over her. She stayed silent and tried to calm her heart. His words were controlled. “I’m thinking this can’t be a coincidence, princess.” Embarrassed, Hannah thought to deny it, but she didn’t want to lie. She stayed silent as she tried to think of a response that wouldn’t completely humiliate her.
She waited too long and he began to remonstrate, “I kind of had the idea I’d already made myself plain. Maybe you didn’t understand?” His words were low and she heard the controlled anger.
“I’m sorry,” she apologized.
Josh stared at her, and then in a rush of movement, his booted foot stepped on the second rung of barbed-wire and forced it down as he simultaneously pulled up the third rung, and that easily, in a move that ranchers had been using for decades, he bent down and slid unscathed through the treacherous wire.
He pulled his work gloves off, cut the engine and stood over her. He was so close she could see the perspiration on his face and smell the delicious aroma from the sweat that drenched his shirt.
Her eyes started to slip closed in an agony of arousal. They flew open when his fingers landed on her chin. He stared at her, his nostrils flaring.
“Hannah baby, we have to get this straight between us. Maybe I should have spelled it out better. I've told you about my father. He’s always drunk. He’s in and out of jail--all the time. The sheriff watches me like a hawk because he thinks I’m just like him.” He caressed her gently in direct contrast to the fierceness of his voice. “Now what do you think the sheriff would do if I suddenly took up with the fifteen-year-old town princess?” He gave her a moment to digest his words. “You need to stay away from me. Don’t make this harder on me than it already is. You don’t know what it’s doing to me--knowing I can have you, but I can’t.” His fingers became caressing. “You understand?” His eyes tangled with hers until an agonized look crossed his features and he bit out, “Repeat after me, princess. Josh wants me.”
Shock hit her system and she gasped. His fingers slipped into her hair and he hissed, “I’m serious. Repeat it. Josh wants me.”
“Josh, please—“
“Now!” he barked and she jumped.
“Josh w-wants me,” her voice was shaky.
“Josh wants me so bad his guts are tied in knots of constant pain,” he pounded the words.
His eyes seared into hers and she tried to answer. “Josh wants me s-so bad--" She found it impossible and her words died.
His fingers twisted through her hair. He continued to punch out his words in third person. “He thinks about me constantly.” His gaze ran over her lips and her hair. “He lives from one hour to the next for the day he can sink into me.”
Hannah was lacerated by his words. At the same time, pleasure infiltrated her system. He was telling her the truth. He wanted her just as much as she wanted him.
He continued in a biting tone, “But I don’t want Josh to go to prison.”
She trembled. “Say it,” he bit out.
A single tear escaped. “Say it,” he growled, even as his thumb shot out and wiped it away.
Hannah sucked in a breath. “I d-don’t want Josh to go to p-prison.”
His hands lifted and he took a step back.
“Good girl," he praised. "Do us both a favor and remember that the next time you come looking for me. Repeat it to yourself if it helps. I’m dead serious, Hannah. You may feel grown-up, you may even know what you want, but the State of Texas doesn’t agree with you.” His voice softened slightly. “You have to have mercy on me, princess."

    Alpha males are apparently born, not created...

    Or at least that's what I've learned from reading Lynda Chance's books. Josh Turner is 17 when we meet him and for at least 13 of those years he was under the thumb of his drunken, abusive father. Josh is tired of the feeling that he's been tarred with the same brush as his no-account father, so he does well in school, holds down a job, and helps work the farm with the uncle and aunt who rescued him from his dad. But he stays away from the girls of his small town, not wanting any trouble...until fate steps in with his rescue of the younger and suddenly blossoming young Hannah at a football game. She's fifteen, the "princess" daughter of the town's richest man, and if she doesn't stay away from him is soon going to be Juliet to his Romeo. And Hannah may be young, but she's been aware of big, beautiful Josh for a couple of years and she's determined not to ignore what's between them even if she has to fight his feelings of honor.

    This was soo totally unexpected...I thought Lynda would lay the groundwork of their attraction as teens for a hundred pages or so then jump ahead to present day, but she sticks with it chronicling the development of young passion with all its temptations. Josh is a wonderment of a creation, doing everything he can to distance himself from his father's bad behavior. Already sexually active, although only with girls from a neighboring town, he turns himself inside out to resist the physical draw between him and Hannah; I can't say I believe real teen boys now would be this noble or self-controlled, but it played well here. With his past, Hannah is the best thing that ever happened to him and holds the promise for his entire future. Yep, he's obsessively, agressively possessive (this is a Lynda Chance book, after all), and that might freak out a real life parent of a teen girl; but he's also aware of the dangers to young girls because of something that happened to his cousin Katie. He also knows that although Hannah hasn't had a lot of friends in the past because of her parents' wealth, her sudden transformation from little girl to young beauty will make her the target for every teen guy at their high school's attention.

    Towards the end of the book, time starts rushing forwards in years to get us to the goal of the HEA. Still I enjoyed it immensely, and though the protagonists are teens, this NOT a teen book. I'd say it's adult romance, alhough books in the newly popular New Adult (audience 18-25) genre have comparable sexual explicitness. Readers of Chance books are familiar with her extremely Alpha males, but readers new to her work might want to glance through the customer reviews to get a feeling for reactions...and then form their own opinion. But I say better a man who'd do anything for his woman than all these wimpy tormented guys who have to tie up their women to feel in control...just sayin.'

    Wow!

    I never write reviews, however, this book deserves the best review I can give! I could not put this book down; I read the entire thing in one night. This story grabbed my attention from the beginning, and never let go. I loved all the characters--mostly Josh Turner (whats not to love about an alpha male hottie?) This is a must read, with a perfect ending!

    This was every bit as fabulous as all her books! I loved the teasers at the end of the past few books - and the full story lived up to the teasers! One author I immediately purchase! I cannot wait to hear about Zach and Katie! And thanks for the facebook updates - makes it fun to hear how things are coming along!

    Another hit for Ms. Chance

    I love Lynda Chance, she writes the best Alpha male books ever! I've read all of her stuff and have yet to be disappointed. This book was different in the sense that it literally starts at the beginning of the relationship and keeps going through the teenage years until adulthood. It was a nice change for Ms. Chance. The book was engaging and the characters very well detailed, very good story line as well.

    Some readers may think she'll s redundant but you have to read the synopsis and excerpts to know what you are going to be getting with a LC book, don't read it only to give bad reviews because you don't like pushy, lovable and loyal men...that's so annoying!

    Excellent!
    This is hands down one of Lynda Chance's best books! I absolutely loved everything from beginning to end. I highly recommend Josh and Hannah's story and I cannot wait to read about Zach and Katie! I hope LC doesn't keep us waiting too long. She is one author who is definitely on my to buy list.

    A wonderful read by LC, as expected. It had all the trademark things I've come to associate with her tales: a proper tale, great leads, passion and love, an Alpha-male-in-the-making in Josh, even at his tender age of 18 as the book starts, and a girl-next-door for him to love. I think that the reviewer who left a 1* review is being entirely unfair, as LC gave a clear indication that this was a YA tale, which is a departure from her normal genre of story. Perhaps said reviewer should  have paid attention to the author's words instead of blind-buying, then slating the book  unfairly.  Unlike in her case, for me, LC remains an auto-buy.

    AWESOME BOOK

    I love Lynda Chance and I have been waiting forever for this book. I was reading another book when I got her email on this book and that it was out. I stopped reading the other book right away, bought this book and started reading! It was so good, you get more emotionally in- depth with the characters in this book than even her other books. It takes us through the years and you see the HOT ALPHA develope into even a more HOTTER ALPHA MALE! I cannot wait until the next book!

    I get it

    Okay, I get it. She's yours. She belongs to you. Good lord, I think 200 pages could have been cut from the book if the author had left out all of the ridiculous "I own you" melodrama.

    I really wanted to like this book. I liked all of her other books, but after awhile, I just started to roll my eyes at the dialogue.

    I also was a little dissappointed that most of the book took place during their teen years but, it didn't matter. This was a wonderful book. Lynda Chance is an automatic buy for me. Not too much angst and drama but always interesting. Look forward to next book as always.

    Disappointed

    I must say I was disappointed with this book. It was not what I come to expect from this author. Since the book about 692 pages I thought that it would be a little bit spend on when they are young then it would focus on when they are adult but I was wrong. More than half of the book is when they are young so there were no sex until close to the end since he had to wait for her to get older. You mostly get makeout sessions. This book is for young adult to read. I have brought ALL of this author and love them all except this one. If the next book is like this I'm not buying it. So disappointed after waiting to get it, now wish I never brought it. It was not a horrible book but I think that it was not going for it to be focus mostly on when they were in high school. I don't want to read about high schoolers.
