Baby, Don't Lose My Number
Fated, book two
Published December 21st 2010 by Samhain Publishing, Ltd.
In these uncertain times, Mia Skinner’s Blackberry is her lifeline to independence…and a twenty-four/seven chain to her overbearing boss. When she loses it on a girls’ night out, it’s a disaster with pink slip written all over it—until she takes a chance and calls her number. And ends up talking to Mr. Sexiest-Voice-Alive.
The moment Jacob Miller lays eyes on the phone’s beautiful owner, a bolt of lust makes him want to make a sexy mess of her tidy outfit and perfectly straight hair. Which is a good sign. It means he’s almost fully recovered from a near-debilitating construction accident. Perhaps a little horizontal healing will get him back on his feet for good.
As their passion burns bright and hot, a funny thing happens. Mia’s ignoring her phone—and Jake’s the one itching to get back to work. But he’s building a plan that’ll let her hang up on her increasingly creepy boss for good. If Mia’s willing to meet him in the middle.
Warning: Delicious, toe-curling sex including a lusty scene in a truck flying down the freeway. A hero whose greatest thrill is lavishing all his attention upon the woman he wants more than anything in the world.
I am quite the fan of this Fated series from Karen Erickson. The first, Under My Umbrella, was a romantic's dream and this one did its predecessor proud. Love, love, LOVED Jake. He is the ideal man. Everything that went through his head in meeting and getting to know Mia is exactly what I feel every woman should want buzzing around inside the skull of a potential partner. Yays for Jake.
It's sappy romance at its finest. The end though, jumps full into cheesy-land. 4 out of 5 stars.
