A dangerous infatuation with a rough and ready man…

Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it.

Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.
What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.
I am a cover junkie and the first thing that caught my attention was the sexy cover for After Hours. I had no problems visualizing Kelly with his smooth hard abs and massive arms.
After reading Willing Victim (5 star Read) had to dive into After Hours ASAP. I was not dissapointed. I did feel like the story started off slow in the begging but at the same time interesting as the setting is set in  a Psych ward. Different as I never read a romance like this before. The title After Hours fits perfect. There is no way I would be able to have any kind of relationship with Kelly and work with him. Kelly does not play fair when it comes to after hour.
He put his lips to my ear. "Ride my cock. Wreck yourself. Feel how fucking hard you make me, and remember it every goddam time we pass eachother on the ward."
Kelly is the alpha male as a hero can get. He is bossy, his way or the highway.
"I told you no." I said plainly aiming my self towards the steps.
"And I'm telling you get in."
He has no patience when things do not go his way. He works forty to fifty hours a week at everybody's beck and call. When he is off, he wants what he wants, they way he wants its. He is honest and would never hit or yell at a woman in an argument. His flirting is refreshing than I have ever read before.
"This is your room, so I'm letting you get your way-"Letting me?
"Come by my place some weekend and maybe I'll show you mine."
"Your way doesn't sound like it takes no for an answer."
"Your welcome to find out. "Good night"
He is a sexy-dominate- dirty talker that a cold shower is needed after ready.
"You feel that? Another inch drove inside. "Feel that cock? Feel what you do to me?
Loved Erin as she has a  backbone and the love she has for her sister. My heart did break for her as what she has to go through with her family.They are perfect for eachother since they have so much in common on how their past has made them who they are today.
Cara McKenna writing voice and heroes have for sure caught my attention.

    1. There is no way I would be able to go to the ward see him day after day and not cream my panties knowing what was in store for me after work with him,.

  2. Ooooooooooh yeah, this one was already on my list, but it just went up, thanks ! :D

    1. Read Willing Victim by Cara McKenna first it is shorter and sexier. I have only read this and that one form her and so far Willing Victim is my favorite.

  3. I'll take your advice, thank you ;)
