Review & Giveaway - Unexpected Find by Nancy Corrigan





Unexpected Find
by Nancy Corrigan


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


Since the murder of her best friend, Jazz is stuck in a safe but lonely way of life. She’s willing to sacrifice everything to keep herself and her family safe from the shifter world. The sexy stranger who struts into her friend’s bar changes all that. From the first glance Jazz knows she’s sunk—their chemistry sizzles from across the room, it’ll be undeniable up close.


Jazz is the most beautiful female Rafe has ever seen and he wants her from the second he sets eyes on her. The depth of the need that swamps him every time he’s near her surprises him. It takes every last ounce of his self control not to pounce on Jazz and make her his. Only her distrust of his shifter nature holds him back. He counts it as a win every time his beloved human gives in to their passion and takes him to her bed. But Rafe’s patience isn’t infinite and he’ll do whatever it takes, face any danger—past or present—to ensure that Jazz becomes his. Forever.

EXCERPT


Jazz chuckled. It was impossible not to. Cindy looked so happy. “Don’t get any crazy ideas. I am not going out with any of your husband’s friends. No more blind dates, thank you very much.”


“You don’t need any help from me, girlfriend. Once you drop the ‘stay away from me’ glare you usually wear around members of the opposite sex, you’ll have no problem picking up a guy.”


“Fine. The next hot guy who shows any interest in me,” Jazz paused and thought about how Josh flirted with her every chance he got, “will be the one I take home.”


“Ummm, now that’s an offer I can’t resist.”


Jazz pivoted and stared at the wide expanse of muscle in front of her. A black tee stretched over a well-defined chest and stomach. Her gaze slid down. A narrow waist met lean, denim-covered hips. She stared at the growing bulge in his pants open-mouthed. An answering spark of arousal lighted within her. Shivers of awareness, the same ones that had skipped down her spine a few minutes ago, traveled from the hardening tips of her breasts to her clit. The bundle of nerves seemed to suddenly take on a heartbeat of its own. She squirmed and a low groan came from the man standing in front of her.


He tipped her chin up until she met his eyes. Her heart skipped a beat. Exotic, up-tilted honey-gold eyes were framed by long blond lashes. Specks of color floated in those oddly bright eyes—brown, blue, green. Beautiful and downright captivating. She couldn’t tear her gaze from them.


Another low, appreciative sound spilled from him. Her gaze dropped to his mouth. Full lips, parted slightly, glistened as if he’d licked them. She swiped her tongue across her suddenly dry ones. Her breath came faster and the fingers holding her chin tightened, not painfully, but more in accompaniment of his moan. She slid her gaze to his and wondered if her eyes betrayed her desire. His did. Half-lidded, dilated and drowsy, they mapped her face before focusing on her mouth.


“Am I hot enough for you?” His thumb traced the lips she’d licked. “Because you’ve caught my attention.” He bent closer and warm, cinnamon-scented breath bathed her face. “I’m interested, little female. Very, very interested.”


Jazz blinked but couldn’t make her mouth work. Up close the man wasn’t just good-looking. He was gorgeous. She watched transfixed as his amber eyes encompassed her vision. Cinnamon and the rich scent of sandalwood filled her lungs. The world titled but the hand holding her chin kept her righted, anchored to him.


He brushed his lips over hers, back and forth. The light touch tore a whimper from her throat. The tip of his tongue came next. He swiped it over the seam of her lips and she parted them. He took the invitation with a thrust of his tongue that was as controlled as the way he’d licked her lips. Sure of his welcome, he twined his tongue with hers, guiding her, urging her to open farther. She bent her head and matched his rolling movements, drawing him deeper.

~~~~~MY REVIEW~~~~~
Unexpected Find (Royal Pride, #1)Unexpected Find by Nancy Corrigan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great start to a series, really well defined world that kept me on edge most of the time. Beautifully paced, the story just flowed and I could not get enough.

Jazz is a kick butt chick!! I totally loved her from the start and she really rolled with the punches. I love a sassy strong gal, she completely owned her situation and had such strength.

Rafe is uber delicious, shifter guys are a serious weakness! He is such an Alpha male, love them, especially when they think they can fight against their instincts!!

The steam is hot and heavy, oh so delicious!! I love my smexy shifter loving where the animal instincts take over and make the mating!! Yeah, this one will really warm you up!!

Ms. Corrigan is a new to me author, but I am definitely going to be watching for more of her!! I do love a series and this one has so much wonderful potential. Can not wait to see what happens next.

  4. My hottie would definitely have to have some tattoos! He would also be tall, dark hair and dark eyes. But sensual, kissable lips and he doesn't snore LOL!

  5. I want a tall (6'3" or 6'4"), muscular, dark-haired, long-lashed, eye color doesn't matter as long as they are super sexy, very loving, never afraid to show his love, not hairy man, who's not afraid to trim those man-bits. (A little man-scaping is a great thing.)

  6. Often we hear experts in the media that report a certain stock is going to soar and
    now could be the time to get. You can run your home-based business perfectly in the event you become cordial
    towards the customers. The business degree raises one's social standing: in other words,
    it opens for you doors that might have otherwise remained closed to you personally.
