Derry Stanton is nothing like his brother, Gavin. For one thing he is a bear shifter. He is also a playboy who has slept with most of the women in the city, sometimes several at once. But when he sets his eyes on his future sister-in law his discerning tastes take on a different scent…hers.
Jessica Murphy has no time or desire to change her current status, that of a twenty-one year old virgin. She has plans for her life, to work her way through med school and become a doctor. To help with her plans she is currently waitressing at the infamous Platinum Club. Unfortunately Derry is also a member of this prestigious establishment and seems to have his sights set on her.
When they both start hearing each others thoughts can they believe in ‘the One’, like their siblings, or is fate destined to play her part?
Derry is great! A Bear Shifter, man-whore with a big, soft heart for those he loves and a firm right hook (also for those he loves, sometimes). Jess is a girl of principles and has stuck rigidly to them through all her young adult life, right until the beat gets hold of her and she can no longer resist the one man who she should. Trying to stay away proves very difficult especially when they are both attending Lilah and Gavin’s wedding.
There are some fantastically funny moments throughout this book, also some heart-wrenching one as well. Hot, steamy sex and ice-cold Gatorade dunking go hand-in-hand to create a wonderful second book in the series.
Lilah and Gavin make a very welcome return alongside all the other Stanton siblings. Asher is up to his usual tricks, time for him to find his own love (not convinced his wife was his first ‘one’). Edward is as reserved as always and Sophia shows her promiscuous side – like brother, like sister!
Laugh, cry, love and love some more…the Stanton Shifters are a family you will never get bored of.
