Series: His to Claim #5


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

Our journey continues with Rafe/Storm now on tour, but the question is what will happen to this couple now that they are together, yet they have so much temptation – or at least Melanie does.

This installment takes us to a hot place – where we see encounters of passion happen that were never expected and yet so welcome.  The problem though is that it makes thoughts/feelings come up for Rafe that he’s not prepared for and it could be detrimental to the relationship and even his friendship with the band.

Also, what this brings to the forefront is that he and Travis never had it out with each other after Storm left Jessica, so that’s something that we see confronted here as well.  The ending of this 5th – CLIFF HANGER! .  i guess my assumption that it was the final book was wrong – since i see that there’s a 6th – i just don’t have my hands on the ARC yet and it doesn’t come out til July so i don’t know what i’m going to do.  Where Ms. Carew left us is a tense place – someone’s gone missing, there are unsettled feelings among the band and the couple, and i’m not sure what the resolution will be. Enjoy!
