Matt Donovan is a solitary guy. His parents more or less checked out on him when he was young, so he doesn't have any family ties to speak of. He spent the majority of his adult life in the military, where his job as a sniper fostered his isolation. Afghanistan cost him his best friend and his inclination towards dominance in the bedroom cost him his fiancé. Matt's heart has been trampled on time and again in the name of love and friendship, so he's wary of both. He's also one of those men who's just. . . . . still. He doesn't speak unless he has something to say and he doesn't gesticulate. Matt isn't a ladies' man like Daniel or a joker like Brent, and him calling these fellas friends is more about their collective attempts to suck him in than any desire for companionship on his part.Read more ›
"He moved like he was walking toward a lover. A lover he planned on thoroughly roughing up before making her scream obscenities into a pillow."
Staking His Claim is about Matt and Lucy. Lucy is Brent's sister and Matt is in charge of picking her up from college and taking her to NYC. When she sees him, it's lust at first sight. But then she hears him saying some not-s0-nice things about her. But Lucy is ready to have some fun, so she lies to Matt about who she is. Matt can't believe how hot he is for Lucy's friend (who is really Lucy) and when the car breaks down, they find themselves having wild sex in a pay by the hour motel. Days later when Matt finds out who she really is, he is PISSED. Not only because she lied but because he betrayed his best friend by sleeping with his sister.
But Matt can't stay away. He sees that he can be himself with her, but he doesn't think she deserves the real him. He thinks she can do way better than a crazed sex fiend like him. Lucy loves Matt's control in the bedroom, loves his dirty mouth and the rough sex. She just has to convince them that they're good together.
"I'm considering giving you my cock right here and now. Would you like that, baby girl? Would you like to be rewarded for following my instructions?"
This story has everything!! Fantastic characters……Matt is sexy and broody, Lucy is feisty and sweet. It action-packed, sexy, funny and scorchingly hot!! So, so good from start to finish!!
He is a complete contradiction of himself; protective yet vulnerable, strong yet insecure and dominant yet reticent. But Lucy Mason gets him in every possible way. Brent's sweet fearless firecracker of a sister is challenging, strong and unleashes the parts of Matt that he has desperately tried to keep hidden. She exasperates him, he intrigues her and this is what makes them such a wonderful couple with an amazing chemistry and an enthralling journey that is paced perfectly between knee-quivering panty-busting hot and heart-stoppingly touching.
If Tessa Bailey writes it, I will read it. She has consistently proven she has an absolute gift of bringing us a man to fall head over heels for, a lady you would want as your best friend and antics together that will make you heart, and many other places, flutter. Not one of her books has been subpar and if you haven't read the Line of Duty series, go do so now because every single one has been that outstanding, it's criminal.
I received a copy of this as an ARC courtesy of Entangled Publishing, however I shall be purchasing as this, as along with the previous 4 (below), is an absolute keeper.
