He had planned a perfect weekend for her…
Gabriel “Force” Banner has been unable to get a certain sexy accountant out of his head. Sole Regret’s inventive drummer has created big plans to keep sweet Melanie entertained all weekend long. Unfortunately, Melanie arrives for their rendezvous with a bit of baggage that just might ruin their fun.
She didn’t mean to make things difficult…
Melanie wouldn’t blame Gabe if he left her at the airport with her bit of baggage, but he’s determined to make their limited time together work. When they leave behind the bustle of New Orleans and the rock ‘n’ roll scene to visit his serene oasis outside of Austin, Texas, their romantic weekend seems to be back on track. But life has a way of butting in at the worst possible times.
Can they learn how to support each other in the face of adversity or will reality destroy their budding relationship before it even takes flight?
This novella is 60,000 words long and includes an extra night, because one night with Force just isn’t enough.
Gabe and Melanie's story continues in Book 11: Trust Me (not yet released).
My Opinion 5 STARS
Olivia Cunning has done it again. She really sucks you into the story and at times had me grinning like a fool.
I loved the fact that we got another look into the relationship of Gabe and Melanie, they really do compliment each other well.
So after their one night together a week ago, they have kept in contact sexting and video chatting and getting each other off. Both have also got closer as they have talked and miss each other terribly.
He plans a weekend off with her, however her clingy roommate finds her way onto the plane and nearly puts a scupper onto their spending time alone.
Gabe takes her home where they get closer both physically and mentally and where they both realise that they love each other, that this is no fling.
The weekend has its misfortunes when Mel falls overboard on his boat and when one of his dogs in run over, however they both cope with the other there. She even gets to meet his parents and their reaction to her shocks yet pleases him.
Mel gets anxious as her friend doesn't contact her until she gets a call she was dreading. Her friend has been hurt and needs her. Gabe is there with her the whole way until he sees them kissing, but doesn't see Mel putting her friend Nikki back in her place gently.
Finding Gabe punishing his drums Mel and Gabe confront each other and slip done truths they had been hiding, making each other happy in the process.
I can't wait to read more from the other characters and for it to come full circle again to read more of Gabe and Mel.
