Series: A Stark International Novella
When sexy Stark Security Chief Ryan Hunter whisks his girlfriend Jamie Archer away for a passionate, romance-filled weekend so he can finally pop the question, he’s certain that the answer will be an enthusiastic yes. So when Jamie tries to avoid the conversation, hiding her fears of commitment and change under a blanket of wild sensuality and decadent playtime in bed, Ryan is more determined than ever to convince Jamie that they belong together.
Knowing there’s no halfway with this woman, Ryan gives her an ultimatum – marry him or walk away. Now Jamie is forced to face her deepest insecurities or risk destroying the best thing in her life. And it will take all of her strength, and all of Ryan’s love, to keep her right where she belongs…
I love all bits of this series – all the spinoffs and all that’s going on. Jamie and Ryan deserve happiness and it seems like they’ve found it but of course that’s never enough. Jamie’s had a tough life from what we all know – she was first trying to break into hollywood and that was tough for her – and she was ok with the role that she played with men – being the pretty arm candy. Then comes along Ryan – the man who turned her world upside down.
What they have together is an amazing romance, one that’s lasted years and they are really in love and happy. the challenge though is that Ryan wants the fantasy – the marriage, kids, life and all that. and Jamie’s terrified of that. So in this installment of their story – Ryan thinks that they are finally on the same page, proposes and Jamie has a moment of fear again. All because her parents are getting separated.
So, where we go in this short story is seeing what that means for the happiest couple of all. Will Ryan be able to make Jamie stop being afraid or will Jamie push him too far and they will see the end of it all. I think that while it’s so short, we get a lot packed into the story – and i think that it’s exactly what we needed to hold us until the next full length is ready. Enjoy!
