A faceless name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. But then the unplanned happened.
We met. And all I wanted from her was a dirty weekend . . . until that wasn’t enough and I longed for so much more.
Lawrence Thorn suddenly means the world to me. And that’s a problem. She’s my business partner’s sister. Forbidden fruit. Pursuing her can mean trouble for me at Lovibond Brewery. But I don’t care.
I yearn for her skin against mine.
I crave her smell on my body.
I want to make her laugh and then hear her moan my name.
And she does for a brief moment in time.
But Lawrence wants more than I’m able to give. And it’s a damn shame because there’s no one on earth I want more than her.
An epic love.
A miserable ending.
Unless it’s not.

-There are far too many ordinary things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.
Lucas Broussard aka TAP is a 29 yr. old gorgeous Cajun guy from Louisiana. After buying into the Lovibond Brewery about four years ago, Lucas & his two partners have become extremely wealthy. Now living in Birmingham, Alabama, Lucas stays very busy with work, family, friends, & the single life. He doesn’t do commitments with women. One night is all he is willing to give. He has been through a lot in his past & his heart is unavailable.
When his business partner Oliver gets into a bit of trouble, he asks Lucas to cover for him with his sister Lawry. This puts Lucas in an uncomfortable position since he’s never met her & now has to interact with her. Lucas thinks he can just tell her a few white lies, but when she shows up out of the blue in Birmingham things get complicated. Lucas is stunned by how gorgeous Lawry is. She’s this beautiful free spirited blonde who he has an insane attraction for from the first moment he lays eyes on her, & the feeling is mutual for Lawry. She wants this man with the sexy Cajun accent & the beard. He’s just delicious!
The problem is Lawry is considered off limits. Her brother has always made it clear she is forbidden to his business partners. Lucas doesn’t want to risk his friendship or work relationship with Oliver. Lucas tries to entertain Lawry while she’s in town & keep things platonic, but neither can resist the chemistry between them. Just as things start to heat up, Lawry has to return home to Savannah, Georgia where she owns a boutique.
They feel a strong connection, but both decide a long distance relationship wouldn’t work. As they are apart they both miss each other terribly. This is the first time Lucas has wanted something more with a woman. Lucas makes the decision to pursue her & go after what he wants, but that’s easier said than done. He’s absolutely obsessed with her, & they both fall hard for one another, but when he lets his tragic past & fears dictate his future, & is unwilling to compromise this causes issues for the couple. Lawry is a strong, independent woman who won’t settle for anything less than what she deserves & she wants the fairytale! This was a fabulous love story I really enjoyed & I look forward to Oliver & Porter’s books up next! 😀
