Vincent just needs a couple of days before he confronts his cheating wife to make sure she doesn't come after the charities he supports.
After a drunken night Tess and Vincent wind up in bed together. Dealing the aftermath of their spouses affair, Tess and Vincent work to get their lives back and can't help but fall for each other in the process, but with Vincent's crazy wife, Tess' idiot husband and the mob, can these to ever be together.
This series was originally sold separately and then sold as a complete book. I found it in the Curves For Him: 10 Delicious Tales by Aubrey Rose, Dez Burke, A.T. Mitchell and Catherine Vale (Jun 15, 2014). So far it is the best in the anthology. It was so good in fact, I decided to check out what other books that Shirl Anders' writes and found that one can purchase just this series, as well as the second book in the series Their Ex's Redrock Midnight (Texas Alpha) by Shirl Anders (Feb 9, 2014)
As far as this serial goes, number one let me say, I'm not a fan of serials, so I'm glad that I found the book bundled together. I'd rather read the whole story than waiting for others to come. More importantly to me, I loved both the lead characters and their friends Rusty and Cade, who make up the next story, as well as Finn. I hope we get to see Finn and here his story in another book. In their own ways even the ex's were good characters and fit the story just right.
As for Tess and Vincent, I was excited to see a BBW herione that, although had a few insecurities about her body's shape, she didn't let it define her. Tess is a successful business woman, who went after what she wanted. She had a sweet personality, but was made of steel where it counted. I liked that.
How Vincent ever hooked up with his ex, I still haven't figured out. He was the perfect alpha in training where Tess was concerned. Strong and sexy with enough toughness to let him come out the victor in any fight.
I'm glad I got to find the story available for sale separately so that people can check it out for themselves.
A man and a woman find themselves drawn to each other after they discover their spouses' affair.
Tess is set to catch her husband. She runs toward the hotel in a thunderstorm seeing a couple in a clench on an outside balcony. She opens her mouth to scream at them when a man grabs her, shutting off her scream. Tess learns the tall, dark, and powerful man is Vincent Whitehorse and it's his wife having an affair with her husband.
Vincent and Tess find themselves drunk in a rainstorm trying to cover their pain, then they find they have an amazing and instantaneous connection of the lips. When Tess falls into bed with Vincent they combust like nothing Tess has felt before. However both their ex-spouses are crazy. Tess' ex-husband has unwittingly hooked up with the mob while Vincent's ex-wife thinks she's the next Cher.
Can Vincent convince Tess to believe in him when things around them are unbelievable in this hot and very sexy second chance at romance?
*This is the completed serial of Their Ex's Redrock 1-4 (Texas Alpha) bundled and with a bit more dialog for Vincent added with no cliff-hangers involved.
