Mike McCauley had his soul mate for a precious time before she died giving birth to their son. She left him with the best boy a guy could want, so why is everyone playing matchmaker? He’s sick of it . . . until he meets Delilah Webster.
For some reason, the foul-mouthed, tattooed mechanic sets his motor running. He sees the loving woman buried within. But the closer they get, the more the pain of past wounds throws a monkey wrench into a future he’s not sure he can handle…
My review :
This is the fourth book in the McCauley’s brothers series.It’s time to see how Mike is going to fall for the tough Delilah!
It wasn’t very easy between Mike’s stubborness, Delilah’s no strings attrached and resistance, Mike’s mother! I was so excited to read their story, because i can feel all the potential, material for this book.
Mike is the oldest of the family and Delilah (Del) is the women who helped Abby with her car.
Delilah was such and interesting character, tough, confident, sexy, and bad ass in the outside (tattored, swearing like a sailor), she was totally the opposite inside: her lack of attachment is hiding an insecure woman who wouldn’t fall for the first guy, she wanted to be in control, avoiding this way to be hurted by a man. Her childhood left her scars, physically and mentally.
Mike, is not searching for a relationship, after the loss of his wife six years ago, he promised to never give his heart to someone, but when he met Del, his body is attracted immediately to her.He couldn’t keep her out of her mind and release his “anger” on her. How to release all this “anger”? by sex! And they couldn’t deny the chemistry between them.
You can guess that they became to have a love/hate relationship. And Mike loving to had the last word was so entertaining, he knew that she wasn’t immune to his charms!When they agreed to release all their anger by sex, (trust me Del has no filter when it comes to his sexy, hot man on a stick !) all their insecurities and unsaid things came back to the surface and especially Mike, making doing things to prove to himself that he wasn’t in love with her. Their relationship seemed so natural, two people having a good time together. But deep inside, we could sense that there more than this fabulous sex chemistry and even if Mike was lying to himself, he showed to Del that maybe there’s so much more, by the way she made him feel.
As all in the series, the sex parts were steamy, hot but our Mike is a big kinky, dirty man! I like their chemistry and how people couldn’t suspected that the two of them could fall in love because Del was so different from all the women he used to date. But you can’t choose the one or the way you fall in love! And definitely love that! Mike’s character always surprises me, in a good way, tough, emotional, big heart, sensitive. This man has a way with word, and his straighforwardness makes me swoon!
Colin, my best little guy definitely rocks this book! This little master of manipulation made swoon so many times, he’s so endearing and sweet. His interactions with Del were great and the invisible bound they created when they first met is getting grower and like his father, he’s smitten with her too!
Some parts in the books are bothering me a little but it didn’t make the story less fun or boring! We know where Mike hold his stubborness and pride! I enjoyed each books and this one was a good ending for all those sweet, sexy brothers, who found their match in the way!But i had to admit that i have a crush on Mike’s son, Colin: a very promising character!! This little guy was so great and surprising! His story would be interresting to tell!
