Roman ‘Bane’ Protsenko
Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.
Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.
Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.
Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.
Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.
Hot as hell, cold as ice.
I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.
She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.
She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.
More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.
Little does she know, I have the teeth for it.
This book is full of SO many plot twists and unexpected turns! It definitely kept me on the edge of the seat the entire time I listened to it. This book was a lot to take in, I was on the fence at first about investing time into it because he wasn’t one of the hotholes but it was totally worth it! Bane is a firecracker. He’s so unapologetic about who he is and does WHATEVER necessary to get what he wants out of life. Jesse absolutely breaks my heart. So many times, throughout the story I wanted to just wrap my arms around her and hold her close. I was so in awe of how she handled everything life threw at her and just how strong she is. She is truly an inspiration for all that she overcame. Their love story is in no way shape or form typical, but I am so happy that they found each other. They awakened different parts of each other and helped each other heal separately but also together. This was such a good read about overcoming, finding love 💕 finding peace ☮️ but ultimately healing and of course some steamy sex scenes 🔥 … what happens at the coffee shop stays at the coffee shop 😉
