Defensive Heart by Dorothy F. Shaw


Uptown girl, tattooed bad boy. Think you know which one is wild? You’d be wrong.

Greenwich Village is home to successful artist Jimmy Donnelly, and the world is his playground. A broken heart in college left him with zero interest in being tied down. But when he meets a sexy, quick-witted Manhattan attorney, he reconsiders his bad boy ways.
Sonja Martin’s life is filled with work, an ex-husband who refuses to stay gone, and a teenage daughter who won’t follow the rules. Jimmy, with his myriad of tattoos and piercings, looks more like one of her clients than a potential lover. But when every argument between them feels more like foreplay, she can’t seem to stay out of his bed.

The heat burns through whatever defenses Sonja thought she had. And Jimmy finds his every fantasy fulfilled—and exceeded—by a woman whose fire burns as bright as her fiercely guarded vulnerability.

But his case for breaking her out of her self-imposed mold might just be dismissed. And he’ll lose the best thing he’s ever found.

Warning: This book might piss you off. But if I’ve done my job, while you’re busy being pissed off, you’ll also fall in love with the hero and the heroine. May contain: A pompous, misogynistic ex-husband. A rebellious teenager. A ton of sex. Adventurous sex. Make-up sex. Desperate-OMG-GET-YOUR-CLOTHES-OFF sex… Did I mention there’s a lot of sex?

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
I have stopped everything to slope off and read this very addictive story. And as I haven't yet read the first in the series, I know just what I will be doing as soon as I get a chance!

For a whole host of reasons, this book worked for me – and even though I thought that I would get in the pages and slap them both more than a couple of times, I was absolutely hooked. I loved both the lead characters and could understand just where Sonja was in her head, with so many expectations from her upbringing. That she turned so uninhibited was fabulous, and that it scared her, was brilliantly described. James's calmness was amazing – although as one of nine children ... perhaps that is not so unexpected. The storyline works, with threads that run through and tie in well.

I highly recommend this to you – just make sure you stock up and set aside time to indulge!
