Title: Love and Pancakes
Author: Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.
Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.
What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?
An AMAZING start to a new series by Lacey Black!! We met Rhenn briefly in the Summer sisters series as Nick’s best friend.
Marissa has lost everything she and her family have worked for in one awful night. Now faced with rebuilding and repairing the bed and breakfast, Marissa has zero plans for finding a ‘friend’ let alone finding love.
Rhenn has signed up to help the Grayson family with the electrical repairs required as a result of the fire and the updates to the rest of the house. Burned once by an ex, Rhenn has stuck to meaningless, friends with benefits type relations. He has zero plans to give his heart away again.
Marissa’s sister owns a lingerie shop in town and has absolutely no problems encouraging her sister when it comes to having a little more fun. At Harper’s suggestion, Marissa proposes a strictly friends with benefits arrangement with Rhenn for while he’s in Rockland Falls. The one rule – do not fall in love. Easy enough to manage for 2 weeks right?
Emma and Orval are back too!! The Summer sisters and their significant others make appearances as well. Excellent start to the series – can’t wait for more!!
“Our first time together isn’t going to be on the floor or on the table.”
“I’m not opposed to the counter,” I whisper, apparently loud enough for him to hear.
Rhenn chuckles. “I promise you, our first time is going to be better than this,” he adds, nodding toward the floor, and believe it or not, I’m disappointed by this development. “Right now, my friends are probably getting ready for our day of sailing. We’re going to head back to my boat, you’re going to throw on a swimsuit, and I’m going to enjoy the fuck out of watching you prance around my boat. And tonight? I’m going to love sliding into that shitty-ass fold out bed, and do you know why?”
“Why?” My mouth is Sahara dry.
“Because you’re going to be beside me.”
“And because you’ll get sex?” I tease with a smile.
He shakes his head. “No, no sex tonight. Not with Nick and Meghan on board. When I finally have my way with you, there’ll be no one else around to hear your moans, Angel. No one else will know how many times I’ve made you come. No one but me.”
Then he kisses me again with a hunger that feels as if it won’t ever be quenched. Like he might die if he doesn’t have another taste. I know right then and there, I’m in trouble. I’m completely over my head with this man, which is why I must keep my heart completely out of the equation. In fact, I’m leaving it here at the house. No way am I taking it with me, allowing it to catch one glimpse of the man who kisses me like I’m the very air he breathes.
“And at the end of the two weeks, we walk away.” I say the words aloud, as confirmation to him, but to me, as well. Saying them makes it true, right?
“At the end of my time here, you probably won’t hear from me again.” Even though those are the words I expected to hear, actually listening to him say them causes a little hitch in my heartbeat. See? That’s why my heart is going to be locked in the cabinet at home and not allowed anywhere near my time with Rhenn.
“Just promise me one thing,” I say, pushing aside the heavy feeling in my chest and digging deep for the girl who’s engaging in a no-strings relationship.
“Promise me you won’t fall in love with me.” I mean it as a joke, as a reminder of what this really is, but I don’t anticipate the catch in my breath and the slight pang of sadness when his eyes twinkle with laughter.
“No worries there, Angel. Love isn’t my thing.”
