Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning him at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little fiancé game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.
4.5 “King of Abs” Stars!!
I totally fell in love with Colby and Jason’s story in Taste the Heat, but who knew that Seven Day Fiance was going to blow that out the water!! How did I read Taste the Heat without falling madly in love with Cane Robicheaux?? Rachel is messing with my head…sexy firefighters first and then bad ass guys who ride motorcycles and have tattoos. I swear it can’t get much better 😉
“Cane Robicheaux exuded sex—sex and danger. And in spite of her many, many ,many attempts to pretend otherwise, she was every bit as susceptible to that potent combination as the rest of the female population.”
So Seven Day Fiance picks up a ways after Taste the Heat leaves off. Colby and Jason are planning their wedding and Cane has been suckered(by his sister) into participating in a fundraiser. Cane in a santa hat with no shirt on…I want to be the highest bidder!!! But, I wasn’t 😦 Angelle was, she won the “King of Abs.” 🙂 And, oh boy, she got so much more than she was planning on. This quick and so so sweet romance, is explosive. I am talking 0-60 in less than a week. And my only complaint, just like in Taste the Heat, is that we are built up into a pile of panty soaked mush, but never given the good stuff…the heat 😉 Jason was a sweety pie and I could deal with it, but with CANE….OMG, everything that comes out of his mouth screams SEX!!! Cane Robicheaux had me in the first chapter 😉
“There was taking chances and then there was duct taping her heart to a target and loading Cupid with the equivalent of a turbo missile.”
Cane is amazing! Sexy, smart, sweet, caring, BUT….he is letting family issues hold him back from being a great boyfriend, or even husband. And then Angelle, Angelle is a sweetheart. She is trying to break out of a shell that her family put her in, and be herself. I applaud her for the things she did in her past. She made a HUGE decision that devastated everyone around her but she did it for HER! I love that!!!
So, to sum it up, this is another fabulous story from Rachel Harris, that I devoured and loved. Again she has blown me away with amazingly strong women and a sexy as hell guy who both deserve one hell of a HEA 🙂 There’s no whiney BS here. This is about facing yours past and finding love 🙂 Get these books, readers!!! They have the Book Bitch stamp of approval 🙂
