“Seriously Nikko.” She rolled her eyes at him, just shook her head, and began to fiddle with the wrapping on her straw. She popped it into the top of the Styrofoam container, and then took a sip of her strawberry milkshake, a long one.

He watched her curiously. He knew he had been flirting, but only to make her jealous, and realize what she missed out on last summer by running from him. He began to peel the paper off of his own straw when she finally came up for air. He wished those lips were sucking something else. His cock was enjoying the thought immensely. He was grateful the table was hiding his powerful erection.

As Ronnie took another pull on the straw she saw Nikko squirm on the seat uncomfortably as he tried to get his straw unwrapped. “Oh yes!” she whispered huskily and licked her lips. She put the straw back in her mouth to suck a little more of the frothy, creamy concoction into her mouth. Two, could play his game, she thought, as his jaw hit the dirt. She could make more out of her enjoyment of the milkshake than she really felt and give him a little dose of his own medicine. She released the straw and then darted out her tongue to lick the tiny bubble of ice cream that appeared on top. Nikko jammed his straw into his own mouth and looked at her fiercely. Smiling and then ignoring him, she popped the straw back into her mouth sucking greedily.

Nikko’s mouth dropped at the sight of Ronne’s lips on the straw, sucking. And her words practically had him shoot a load like he was a teenaged boy again. His blood was pumping in his veins. The wrong veins, or maybe the right ones. He felt his cock in his pants stir against the constraints. The second, no maybe third time that day, she’d made him harder than the Rock of Gibraltar. He shifted on the wooden seat uncomfortably. His balls would be blue in no time if she continued her little sensuous torment much longer. He knew what she was doing, but that didn’t, couldn’t stop his reaction to it.

He finally took another sip of his own drink needing the coolness of it to tame the flames she was fanning. It was good. “Oh yes,” he teased her back saying it breathily. “So good!” he purred and went in for another sip.

They exchanged glances over their straws and then both of them couldn’t help themselves, they burst out laughing simultaneously.

They laughed, and for Ronnie it felt good. It was the first time she had laughed in days, and had not thought about all the things she had to face. For Nikko, it was startling. He realized he loved her laugh, and would like to hear her do that more often. Like last summer, he realized there was something about this girl who made him want more than just a roll in the hay. But, he couldn’t think of that now.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

If you have read the Secrets & Seduction series by M.J. Nightingale you will recognize some of the characters in this book. I loved the Secrets & Seduction series and I am already loving this series! Ronnie is about to graduate college, has a great future ahead of her and a boyfriend. Nikko is HOT and a bounty hunter. Ronnie and Nikko met previously and hit it off instantly, but then a misunderstanding keeps them from being together. When Ronnie is busted for smuggling drugs Nikko jumps at the chance to take the case. Nikko’s reputation is on the line but so is his heart. Ronnie has to prove her innocence so her family and friends don’t lose everything they put up for her bail. This is a hot, steamy book with a good story. I can’t wait for the next book.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This is a book full of plot, full of sexual chemistry and full of adventure. It has a cast of very likeable characters and tells a whole story. In places I felt that the writing could have been tightened up a bit, and maybe some further editing would have just added some polish – but as a hot romance with a proper ending it scores well. I liked that the title could easily have two meanings, which you would only understand as you read on – I like clever titles!

Clearly this is the first in a series and I will certainly look out for them as they become available.

This was my first book by M.J. Nightingale, and boy can she write some HOT men!

Ronnie Sears is in some serious trouble, she's been arrested for smuggling drugs into the country, and is being held to await her trial. Luckily her parents have access to Bondsmen/Bounty Hunters and are able to get her out of jail (for the time being), to start working on her legal defense.

The Marino brothers, Nikko in particular, are the Bounty Hunters that are working with Ronnie and her family to keep her out of jail. Ronnie and Nikko are no strangers to one another, and are more than happy to reconnect.

I liked both Nikko and Ronnie, and found myself fretting over her “case,” worrying about her family, and hoping for her happy ending.

Reading has been a part of her life since she was a child. She has been an avid lover of classical English and American literature, but romance has always held a special place in her heart.  She devours historical romance novels all summer long, and any type of fiction; thrillers, crime, suspense, and drama. All three, Fire In His Eyes, Afraid to Love, and Afraid to Hope, are erotic romance standalone novels and are part of her Secrets & Seduction Series.

She is also working on a new series The Bounty Hunters for 2015.

She currently lives in Florida, where she continues to teach, with her wonderful husband of nine years, and her sons.  She plans on pursuing her writing career full time very soon.
