Series: His to Claim #1


Rafe Ranier was my boss and secret crush. A rock musician by night and head of a billion dollar empire by day, Rafe could have any woman he wanted. But I was just the shy secretary he never noticed. For years I obsessed over him, until I finally realized I had to walk away. I needed to break from the secure life I’d always known to discover who I really was.

I never expected Rafe to follow me.

Now I’m on the road with his band, Savage Kiss, and all my secret fantasies are coming true. But I fear I’ve made a huge mistake, because if I get any more attached to a man I can never truly have, my heart will be broken beyond all repair.

My Thoughts

It’s been a while since i was involved in this series – or these characters for that matter, so it took a few seconds to jog my memory – but i’m glad that i’ve come across this ARC from Netgalley.

If you’ll remember, we met Melanie, Rafe and his brother Dane and girlfriend Jessica in the last series His to Possess.  Now we get to begin the story of Rafe and Melanie, and that’s where this first novella installment takes us.

Melanie used to work for Rafe but quit her job and is getting a better idea of what it means to be free and independent.  The question that we’ll get to see answered i hope is whether Rafe will be able to help her discover her freedom and inner self and what that will mean for everyone.  at only 25 pages or so, there’s not much that we get to see yet, but at least it’s a nice introduction, all brought together from a tattoo and a motorcycle.  Enjoy!
