LOCKED IN A BANK VAULT TOGETHER…
THEY MIGHT REDEFINE THE MEANING OF ‘SAFE’ SEX
Misty Carlisle works as a bank teller in Boston’s financial district. She’s had more rotten luck in her life than most, except when her childhood crush shows up to cash his paycheck. Then her heart races and her mouth goes dry.
Gabe Fierro is a firefighter―and a phoenix. Like his brothers, his biggest challenge is finding a woman open-minded enough to accept a shapeshifter into her life. When his boyhood friend asks him to watch over his little sister Misty, he reluctantly agrees. But when the bank where she works gets held up, Gabe does everything he can to protect her. The two of them end up locked in the bank’s vault…where things get steamier than either of them ever imagined.
First Line: “‘Do you want everyone to hear us? Keep your voice down,’ Gabe whispered to Parker Carlisle, his best friend since childhood.“
Hooked on a Phoenix is shapeshifting done right! As the first installment of the new Phoenix Brothers series, this fast-paced romance is a must-read. We follow Misty and Gabe as they rekindle an old friendship and new, heated emotions rise. The action surrounding Misty is perfectly plotted without taking away from the underlying passion. Readers will squirm in anticipation and swoon over Gabe. Gabe’s protective nature, his desire to find a real love and the keen attention he gives to Misty puts him in the running to be one heck of a book boyfriend who won’t be easy to forget.
Misty Carlisle is in the business of making bad decisions. Or rather she’s just incredibly unlucky. Immediately into the novel, the bank she works at gets robbed. Luckily, she has Gabe Fierro, her childhood crush, by her side as she meanders through a series of ill-fated events. Gabe is a shape-shifting hunk of man. When his buddy asks if Gabe would look after his younger sister, Misty, feelings start to resurface as Misty relearns Gabe’s unique quirks. But will she stay after she finds out he’s a shapeshifter? Now, Gabe and Misty are locked up in the bank’s vault and things are about to get steamy as they fight their way toward safety — and love. (SOURCEBOOKS, Mar., 352 pp., $7.99)
