Book #2: Out of Uniform Series
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
Round two of the Out of Uniform series is a novella-length read featuring Marcy Bellini and police office, Aaron Robinson.
Marcy’s life for the past three years has been ensuring her three-year old daughter, Claire has a good and stable life. As an elementary school teacher, Marcy’s job provides a steady income and with no social life at all, Marcy is always home and always available for her daughter. Marcy has no intention nor plan to change her routine until the night she ends up at a party for her neighbor and good friend, Bri Nave. With a sitter at home, the encouragement of her friends to let loose and, a few shots in her, Marcy finds herself face-to-face with her long time crush, Aaron Robinson. And by face-to-face I mean getting down and dirty in the alley behind the bar.
Aaron Robinson has long carried a torch for his sister’s best-friend, Marcy Bellini. Wellingford is a small town and Aaron knows every obstacle Marcy has overcome to establish a stable and secure life for herself and her daughter. With every intention of finally making Marcy his, Aaron is taken completely by surprise by Marcy in the alley behind Chilly’s. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, Aaron goes right with Marcy for one hell of a ride that he instantly wants a repeat of. Aaron is gentleman though and is determined to treat Marcy like the lady he knows her to be and so, he asks her out. Mind you, it takes Aaron more than a few phone calls and one more seriously hot encounter before he can get Marcy to agree to a proper date.
Marcy has resigned herself to a relatively lonely life that is born out of her intense desire to protect her daughter. Not dating means not exposing Claire to any uncertainty or instability but also means Marcy has no true companionship in her life. Her past experience with Claire’s sperm donor has made her incredibly wary but if there was ever going to be a man to trust, Aaron Robinson would be it. She has known Aaron for more than a decade and in every encounter she has had with him, he has proven himself to be an honorable and good man with nothing but good intentions toward her. Aaron is a kind man who is willing to go slowly for Marcy’s sake but in a moment of pure, unadulterated panic brought on by her daughter catching them in the act, Marcy pushes Aaron away and makes it clear there is no room for him in her life.
The Bottom Line: His to Keep is a short and sweet read that fits in so nicely with the Out of Uniform series. Marcy is such a sweet girl who has worked so hard to provide for her daughter that is absolutely understandable why she has such a hard time allowing any man into her life. I love that Aaron is the man she chooses to trust and it makes perfect sense that he is one given their long history. Aaron’s kindness is matched by his determination and patience and he doesn’t give up on Marcy even when she makes it clear he should. This quick read is just perfect but it is the epilogue that really takes it over the top. In all, a fine addition to the Out of Uniform series.
Aaron and Marcy's chemistry is a romance favorite. The best friend of a sibling, a crush from a far that you ignore so boundaries are not awkward. Then time passes, life brings about changes but the feelings don't disappear, they grow. This where Aaron and Marcy start. It's from here they need to decide if what they wished for in the past can be granted now.
I loved this novella. Strongly recommend it to anyone who loves a sweet, sexy story.
*Although this novella is within a series, it can be read as a standalone*.
Aaron Robinson is a no-nonsense cop who has wanted his sister’s best friend, single mom Marceline Bellini, since she was seventeen years old and tried to seduce him. The timing never seemed quite right, though, what with her being so young and later marrying the a guy Aaron never thought deserved her, but now that it appears she’s ready for more, Aaron is bound and determined to make her his.
While the sex is spicy hot between Aaron and Marcy, Aaron wants more than that. He wants something real. Yet, thanks to Marcy’s failed marriage, and her fear of screwing up her daughter’s stable life, it takes some doing for Aaron to convince the woman to give them a true chance. Aaron refuses to walk away without a fight, though, something Marcy soon comes to appreciate about him.
This was a great love story. Hot, with a really solid romance. It’s was the perfect bridge between the first book, In Bed With Mr. Wrong, and the next book, Falling For His Best Friend (out May 19th).
This seems to be a case of getting what I paid for - the ebook was free, so all I'm out is the time it took to read.
