Romance Book Review: Kaylie Newell's Teaching Officer Lonesome
Steamy erotic romance featuring an older man and younger woman. Jack Malone is a cop who lost his wife a year ago. He's tried to date, but he hasn't gotten over the love of his life. One day on the job he pulls over Hope Marlow, a young woman who he recognizes who takes care of her younger sister.
Hope is beautiful, but she's too young for him. Still he wants to try and be friends with her and help her out.
Hope is very attracted to Jack and doesn't see a problem with their age. She's only after a little fun and a way to thank Jack for all the help he's given her. She knows he's lonely, but will never make the first move. Being bold and sassy isn't a problem for Hope.
Can she help the officer with his problem without getting too caught up in a relationship she doesn't really see a future for herself?
Very nicely written erotic romance. While there is a lot of sexual tension and steamy love scenes through the pages of this novella, there is still a strong story line outside of the bedroom taking place.
A sexy cop with a broken heart is about to be taught a lesson.
Hope Marlow is a twenty-two-year-old seasoned vet when it comes to steamy one-night stands. Hope has had a hard life. From the wrong side of the tracks and abandoned by her mother, she finds herself trying to raise her little sister on a salary that barely pays the bills each month. She's tough, jaded, but when she's pulled over one sweltering summer afternoon for not using her turn signal, she meets her match in a sexually inexperienced cop twice her age.
The day Jack Malone stopped Hope is one he can't forget. It's more than the way she looked in the miniskirt and hot pink tank top, it's her confidence that keeps coming back to haunt him. But Jack is still reeling from his wife's death a year ago, and Hope represents things he thinks he can't have with a woman—passion and a new beginning. Plus, there's the fact that she's practically half his age.
Hope sees things differently. The age difference doesn't bother her, but while Jack craves an emotional connection, Hope has no interest in that. She's an expert at pushing her emotions aside, and she knows that if Jack would let her, she could teach him how fulfilling lust alone can be. With that in mind, she sets out to seduce the sexy cop.
It's only during their first night of passion that they both discover how much they've been missing.
