f070a-tastytoursreviewIn one word for Jamie Hollins newest book is Wow. Right of you can tell that James Foley is not the usual hero for he is a dad sexy one too. His main priority is his little boy and when he meets Megan he has no clue what to do. The attraction he feels for her is something he never felt with his ex-wife. What really got me was Megan and her go to attitude in this book. With everything that has happened to her she is a woman with plans and boy James well is wow. This is book 3 of a beautiful series and I for one definitely recommend this one loved it.

“I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own.”

Megan nibbled on her lower lip as she looked everywhere but at him. He desperately wanted to ask her what was bothering her, but he stopped himself. She wasn’t his. It was none of his business.
He needed to be straight with her.
“About Friday night…” He paused before deciding to begin a different way. “I need to be upfront with you and tell you that I’m not interested in a relationship. I’ve got a lot going on in my life with the shop and with my son. And a steady woman just doesn’t fit into my plans at the moment.”
She nodded but didn’t say anything. Shit, if she broke into tears in his parking lot, he didn’t know what he would do.
“I like you, Megan. I sure as hell liked what happened on Friday, and I’d like to see you again. But beyond that, I can’t give you anything more.”
“So are you saying you’d like to date but not exclusively?”
Was that what he was saying? That he wanted to date her?
“If by dating you mean periodically getting together and having sex, then sure, let’s go with that.”
As soon as the words were out of his mouth, he wished he could take them back. He was being honest, but it had made him sound like a dick.
She looked skyward and smiled. “Thank God. That’s exactly what I was going to say.”
He frowned. “You were?”
“Yes!” She laughed. “What a relief. I had a lot fun with you. But jumping back into a relationship…I just can’t right now.”
“So we agree on this?” he asked incredulously.
“Absolutely.”
Huh. Wasn’t that something?
“Oh, but there is one thing I did want to add,” she said, grimacing slightly.
He knew there had to be a catch.
“If we’re…” She looked back toward the garage at the guys congregating around the open doors, pretending not to eavesdrop. “If we’re sleeping together, I’m not going to hold you to being exclusive, but I would hope you could extend the courtesy of letting me know if you meet someone else who you’d like to sleep with.”
He couldn’t help it, he let his chuckle slip. He wasn’t laughing at what she said. It was perfectly reasonable. He was laughing at the idea of wanting any other woman when he had Megan in his bed.
“That’s fair,” he replied. “And I’d expect the same courtesy from you.”
Smiling, she extended her hand. “Deal.”
He frowned, taking her outstretched hand. Instead of shaking it, he lightly tugged her toward him. “Sweetheart, I’m not shaking your hand like we’re conducting some business deal.”
She blinked, her mouth falling open before she closed it quickly. Pulling her hand from his grasp, Megan clutched the strap of her purse. “Of course, I’m sorry. That was stupid.”
He smiled, taking a step closer and leaning in slightly. “Not stupid, and you have nothing to apologize for.” He watched as her eyes fell to his lips and he liked the way this woman thought. “Now tell me…when can I see you again?”
She swallowed before nibbling on her lower lip. It took everything he had not to reach up and pull her rose-colored lip down with his thumb. James knew all of his employees were watching. They’d stopped the pretense of being busy the moment he’d pulled her toward him.
“How about we do dinner this weekend?” he asked. “It’ll have to be late, after Cade goes to bed.”
She nodded slowly. “I’d like that.”
“Saturday around nine o’clock?”
Her clear blue eyes smiled as she nodded again. “It’s a date.”
“It’s a date,” he repeated.
