There’s no such thing as a little in lust…
Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. But now that she’s earned happiness and success, Archer just wants Elle 24/7.

5 It’s Always Been You Stars!
Elle Wheaton came from nothing & has built a life for herself she’s proud of. No longer the scared weak girl she once was, she’s now a strong, confident woman. She’s moved on and is never looking back. She lives in the Cow Hollow district of San Francisco, has fabulous friends & a wonderful job as the general manager at the Pacific Pier Building.
Elle’s job requires her to work closely with the security firm down the hall, Hunt Investigations. The head of security is the intelligent, intimidating, bossy, controlling alpha owner Archer Hunt. He was antagonistic & always clashing with Elle. He drove her crazy, but she also had a major crush on him.
Elle had a history with Archer, which was something she tried her best not to ever think about. Years ago he was there for her when she found herself in a bad situation. Ever since that night, he has been someone that’s always been there for her. She knows she can count on him for anything & he’s the one person who will come through for her, but deep down she’s always wanted more.
Archer cares deeply for Elle. He wants to protect her & feels it’s his job to keep her safe. After such a rough start in life, he only wants the best for her. He watches her date other men until he just can’t take it anymore. He decides to prove to her their meant to be. He wants her to be his & goes after her hard. They both are in serious lust over each other & the sexual tension is out of control until it finally explodes & they act on their feelings.
-Truthfully, she was the best thing in his life and he was a complete idiot if he let her walk away from him.
-Her smile lit up his world.
-“I want you, Elle,” he said, voice low and rough. “It’s a goddamn ache, I want you so much.”
-“I want in your life, Elle. All the way in.”
This book was fun, flirty, hot as hell & everything I love about a Jill Shalvis story. Archer was a tough, delicious alpha male with a huge heart & an even sexier body. I love it when a big yummy badass guy falls hard for a woman. This is one of my favorite books by this author! I hope we get a book for the nerdy genius Spence next. I’m dying for some Spence!!! ;))
