"When you find her, there are a few things you need to remember. She’s smart and manipulative. She knows how to protect herself. She’s beautiful and she’ll use it to her advantage. But, Mr. Renton, the most important thing to remember… is that she’s mine.”
J.T. Renton is worth millions. He wants for nothing. When he finds Sloan Mathis, he has to have her. Problem is she belongs to another, and J.T.’s not about taking another guy’s girl. But the idea that he can’t have her. Well, it just makes the challenge driven, J.T. Renton want his latest find that much more.
“I-I can’t believe you just walked out here butt-ass naked.”
“Why?” His eyelids lift. “What do I have to be ashamed of?”
“Uh…” Does he really want me to answer that?
“Besides,” he says, the side of his mouth turning up, “it ain’t like you haven’t been imaging what I look like butt-ass naked.”
“In your dreams,” I hiss. Powerless, I steal another glimpse of the muscles rippling down his arms, his flat stomach, and his strong legs. Hot damn, he’s perfect.
“Precisely where I’ve been, huh?”
“Yeah, right.” I stand up from the bed, my strength weakening.
“That’s not what you were mumbling in my ear last night,” he says, readjusting the towel around his sculptured waist.
“Hey, I was perfectly fine on the floor. You didn’t have to pick me up and put me in bed with you.”
“Just as I thought.” He shakes his head and takes a few steps toward me.
“What’s that?” I turn a bit to the left to move away from the unsafe bed.
“You were awake when I did that, and you still had no fight in ya to stop me. Admit it. You wanted to sleep with me. Those sexy legs of yours wanted nothing more than to wrap themselves around my body, and as for your hands…” His eyebrow curves. “Are you gonna deny where they were wandering to—”
“Now I know you’re full of shit! My hands didn’t wander anywhere.”
“No, but mine did, and there was no fight in ya to stop me then either.”
“Ew!” I don’t remember sleeping with him. But, hell, if I’d been awake, my frisky hands would’ve been all over him. “Fuck off,” I lurch, utterly frustrated.
“Now let’s not start throwing that word around, ‘cause standing here in nothing but a towel with you wanting what you want…” he says, shaking his head. “Well, I can’t promise that boyfriend of yours will be too happy to hear about you, me, and the eff word all summed up into one.”
“Yes, I know.” He waves me off. “I’m an arrogant ass, but hey, I get it. You want me, but you belong to someone else.” He shrugs and grins. “It happens.”
My hands ball into tight fists at my sides. “I belong to no one!”
“You do, Sloan, whether you want to admit it or not. You’re his.” He presses closer, and my back hits the wall. “And be thankful for it.” He lifts his hands and places them on the wall, trapping me. “See, the fact is…” His eyes roll down my body, then slowly saunter back up, “That’s the only thing stopping me from stripping your clothes off, slamming you against this wall, and fucking you hard.” He leans in, and my entire being shakes from the inside out. “It’s all that’s stopping me from making every bone in your body ache for me, and every muscle ache because of me. And let me tell ya, by the time I got through with you…” He pauses again, his lips slightly parted, his head tilting closer. “You’d certainly belong to someone, because I’d make you completely mine.”
Book Review: Finder Fees by Kelly Gendron
Jevon Taylor “J.T.”
Renton is a finder. He finds things; he finds people. His newest assignment is to find Max. Max’s boyfriend wants her back, and he hires J.T. to find her since he’s the best at his job. Well maybe not the best since J.T. just found the wrong girl!
Sloan Mathis is a massage therapist also working in her cousin’s tattoo shop. She doesn’t want to be found. Well at least not by her ex-boyfriend who she fled.
J.T. and Sloan openly flirt right from the start. Their bantering is entertaining as they try to match wits. There’s insta-lust and insta-love, but it’s a ton of fun and oh boy does it heat up.
J.T. is cocky, quick on his feet, and pretty alpha male. Sloan is equally quick with the comebacks, feisty, independent, and strong. Both characters are enjoyable, and while they may doubt they are right for each other at times, it’s clear to the reader they are.
How long will it take for J.T. to figure out he’s found the wrong girl? Will Sloan’s ex find her? What’s the story behind J.T.’s finds?
The plot has action, some suspense, danger, romance, and steam. This is a fun story about finding the wrong person and, at the same time, finding the right one. And every find has a fee…will this one be their hearts?
Finder Fees is the 4th book in a stand-alone series, Troublemaker. A preview of book five is included. I’ve not read the previous books, but they’re going on my TBR read list now.
