Sometimes what you find isn’t what you were searching for
Beau Petty has been searching his whole life. Searching for a place that fills all the empty spaces in him. Searching for a way to tame the restlessness. Searching for answers to the secret he’s never stopped trying to solve. What he wasn’t searching for was a woman to claim all of him, but when Cora Silvera walks back into his life, he’s ready to search out all the ways he can make her his.
Cora has spent her life as the family nurturer, taking care of others. But now she’s ready to pass that job on to someone else. It’s time to make some changes and live for herself. It’s in that moment that her former teenage crush reappears and the draw and the heat of their instant connection is like nothing either of them has experienced. He craves being around her. She accepts him, dark corners and all.
Beau thinks Cora’s had enough drama in her life. He wants to protect her from the secrets of his past, even if it means holding back the last pieces of himself. But Cora is no pushover and she means to claim all those pieces.
About the Author
The story goes like this – While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about “giving that writing thing a serious go” to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.
Today Lauren is a New York Times bestselling author of over fifty novels and novellas across several genres.
Review of Whiskey Sharp Torn
Review (5 Stars): Have I told you how much I love Lauren Dane’s books? I was beyond excited to read Whiskey Sharp Torn and even though I haven’t read the rest of the series, I knew I was in for a ride as well as a box of Kleenex. Cora has spent most of her life taking care of others and is finally ready to settle down and establish some roots in Seattle near her close friends. Never did she imagine that she would come face to face with her longtime crush, Beau.
The heat between these two characters was electric and you could see that they belong together. The only thing is that Beau is fighting his own demons and he doesn’t want to put any of that on Cora. I love that Beau was trying to protect Cora but she was one person who wasn’t afraid of anything and that Beau’s rough edges made him the man that she fell in love with. I’m glad that they were able to deal with his past together and get their own happy ending.
This is the third book in the series and as always, I’m a sucker for Ms. Dane’s characters. Sexy, intelligent and a little rough around the edges are absolutely perfect to me. That and a Red Mill burger reference and I’m sold.
