Ava Stone has spent her entire life looking over her shoulder—waiting for the past to catch up with her….
After surviving a horrific attack as a teenager, Ava has never been able to truly overcome her fears. The incident was covered up by her family so she wouldn’t have to deal with it publicly—yet only one person understands what she had to endure in private: her brother’s best friend, MacKinley Powers, who found her the night of the attack. But even he doesn’t know everything—and she’s afraid to open up to him.
Mac has loved Ava for most of his life—and being in close contact with her every day as head of security for Danvers International isn’t helping. In fact, it makes him realize the painful truth: He has to walk away to keep his sanity. But when Ava is forced to rely on the only man who has never let her down, can Mac break through the protective walls she’s needed for so long?
ALWAYS LOVING YOU by Sydney Landon
Ava & Mac
5 STARS – WOW… JUST WOW!!!!
Well, I haven’t laughed this much since Claire popped out of the Cake in front of Jason at Winthrop’s bachelor party! There is so much banter mixed in with a ton of humor and peppered with some steamy sexual content. I
can honestly say that this book and the first one, Weekends Required are my two favorite in the Danvers series.
Ava is so awesome. Although she’s troubled from a horrific past, her demeanor and her persona make me wanna hug her, hard!!! OMG… the fact that she heeds the warning of several magazines and her crazy girlfriends cracks me up. All of the things that she comes up with to capture Mac’s attention I probably wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole. Frankly I’m surprised she did, but man was it funny!!! The things a woman will do to rectify being kicked to the curb for a woman with a bigger ass… Bwahaha… G-Lo!!!
Mac on the other hand is a total tight ass. I think somewhere along the way he forgot how to have fun and enjoy his own life. Seems he got to tied up with making sure Ava’s life was okay and lost a piece of himself while doing it. Enter the new and improved Ava!!! I quite honestly thought this new Ava was going to kill Mac, but it seems that through the anger, the jealousy, and the anguish, he came out somewhat unscathed on the other side.
Great supporting character cast. I especially love all of Ava’s wonderful, foul mouthed, bitchin’ girlfriends. That part where Ella’s in labor will make me laugh out loud for years to come. Hey you skinny skanky skank… You
whorebag… And of course Suzy… The Queen of the whores!!!! Too fuckin’ funny!!
All in all I found this story very amusing, extremely funny, and uber steamy!! The pacing is perfect, the dialogue flows exceedingly natural, and the build up to the climax was one I won’t soon forget. Great addition to the Denver series Sydney. I totally loved it!!!
I received an ARC Paperback from Berkley Publishing for an honest review. @
