~ Mace ~
I fell for Hailey the moment I laid eyes on her, before I knew about the three King Kong size battles I would have to fight to be with her.
By the time Linc warned me that his gorgeous sister with legs a mile long was off limits and “emotionally fragile,” it was too late. There was no turning back.
Then there’s my friend Senn, who had a one-night stand with Hailey. He’s trying his best to get a repeat performance during the week of Claire and Linc’s wedding. Sorry buddy, bros might come before hoes, but they don’t come before sweet southern belles.
And last but not least, the IFC insists that if I want a million dollar contract and a championship title fight then I need to keep up my playboy image to fuel all the female fans’ filthy fantasies.
But for Hailey, I’ll do whatever it takes to make her mine.
~ Hailey ~
Smooth talkin’, sexier than sin, Mason Reed came out of nowhere and stole my heart, despite his inappropriate obsession with my panties. I’m not supposed to fall for the “little” brother of my soon to be sister-in-law, or be fantasizin’ about lickin’ every inch of his tattoos the week of her and Linc’s wedding.
Mason’s seven years younger than me, and infamous for his so called “harem.” His fight intro song is actually a tribute to his magical…well, it rhymes with rock. Not only will he likely end up hurtin’ me, but he’s also…rock blockin’ Senn, my former hot fling.
After I find out just how close Mason is to landin’ a huge IFC contract if he keeps performin’ his magic tricks for all the ladies, I refuse to let him give it all up for me.
I had no idea how much I would miss him or how much it would hurt when I finally succeeded in pushin’ him away.
Her sigh is so heavy, I can practically feel the warmth of her breath whooshing against my ear before she says, “You’re late.”
There’s something about the weight in those two words and how her golden shoulders slump that have me feeling shittier than maybe ever before for being slack. Not just slack, I was fucking selfish, making this incredibly classy and gorgeous woman wait for me in a shitty airport coffee shop while I was dicking around. The southern beauty doesn’t even sound pissed. She sounds…disappointed in me. Which is so much worse. And I know right then and there that my being late has actually hurt her feelings. In a rare moment of understanding how the crazy female brain works because I have—had— two older sisters, I even realize exactly why she’s upset – I didn’t think she was important enough to be on time for.
“I’m sorry,” I say with as much conviction as possible, because I honestly mean it. If I had known about those fucking mile-long legs and her slow, sexy drawl, I would’ve been here at sunrise, waiting to worship her on my knees instead of having a threesome. That’s right, she equals the equivalent of two sexy women. Hell, maybe even four. “What can I do to make it up to you?” I ask, wanting, no, scratch that, needing to have her forgiveness. “Any fucking thing. Name it, and you’ve got it, sweetheart.”
And that’s when it happens. Her face breaks into a smile that’s so stunning it actually causes a hiccup in the space-time continuum. It’s like in a movie when the entire room freezes. Everyone else around us disappeared, time stood still, and the single moment hung suspended in its progression, all because of her.
I pull the phone away from my ear to see what time it is because I never want to forget this monumental, historic event. Eleven-eleven on June sixth is the exact moment I fell in love with that smile. And now I’m absolutely sure that I’ll not only keep my promise to do anything to make up for being late, but I’m also certain that I would do anything on God’s green Earth just to see her smile again.
Mace has been through so much in his life, so much hurt and loss. That is the main reason why he isn’t able to settle down, and why he has four girlfriends. Yes, I said Four!! Which isn’t really hard to imagine since he is a handsome, ripped, cage fighter. Some of the stories that is portrayed is crazy! He also likes to make sure anyone he sleeps with is in it for more than one night. Mace makes sure any girl he is involved with knows he is not into one night stands or monogamy. Even though he makes sure his women are faithful to him. So when it came time to celebrate his sister’s wedding with her at her future husband, Linc’s, beach house Mace wasn’t exactly thrilled. Especially knowing he had to pick up Linc’s sister from the airport and travel 5 hours with her. So when Mace showed up to the airport two hours late and tried to look for Hailey he wasn’t ready for who he would find. A tall, gorgeous, curvy blonde with a smile that stopped his heart. Mace knew right then and there he was in trouble especially when he realized that was his travel partner.
Hailey was upset her ride was more than 2 hours late, she felt like she is an afterthought, exactly how she felt all the time. She had some inner demons that completely ate at her all the time, but didn’t want to face them. All she knew is she was going to her younger brother’s wedding and she still wasn’t in a relationship and no future of having a marriage and kids. She knew there could be a chance to work things out with Linc’s friend Senn, but he never wanted to pursue her after last year. So when Hailey saw the man that made her feel small and petite she couldn’t believe it was the man who forgot about her. Only she thought she could forget that small detail just to have one night with him.
So Mace and Hailey had to deal with their attraction to each other and try their hardest not to pursue it. But once Mace found out how bad Hailey’s issues really were he wanted to make sure he should her how truly wonderful she really was. Hailey only wanted to have one week with this fine specimen but nothing further, especially knowing he had other woman and a huge contract to fight and stay single. Only Mace realized he was ready to give it all up for Hailey she was completely worth it to him, and Hailey didn’t think she was worth anything. So it turned into being a long week of passion and arguments. After their week was up would they really be able to let each other go? Would they be able to push past all the hurdles and give in to true love.
Mace by Lane Hart is a fantastic romance novel. Lane definitely writes this book very well and adds to the love triangle and protective family members. And let me just say the sex scenes are amazingly steamy!!!!
