*ARC provided by the author in exchange for my honest review for the book promo tour.
This is the 2nd novella in the Beaumont Trilogy. In the first novella, Saving Chloe, it was the story of the relationship development of Parker and Chloe. Here, as the title states we find out all about Parker’s past, from his childhood to his sexual entanglements and history.
The story reads as a series of Parker’s interactions with the ladies but we are introduced to Emma who has a lasting impact on Parker. Not much was touched on this in the first novella so it will be interesting to see how it will play out for Emma and Chloe with Parker in the third and final novella.
I didn’t really feel the love for Parker in this, however I get that he was a younger man and with a huge chip on his shoulder he had not yet learnt to manage in his behaviours to his sexual partners. It was a shame as I liked him in Saving Chloe. I will reserve any further judgement on his character when all is concluded in the final instalment.
There were a few inconsistencies in this book in view of what had already been revealed in the first book and a few name changes that was a little confusing.
However, overall it was a quick and spicy read. The next novella is Family Secrets.
I rip her panties from her body and then squeeze her ass and lower a kiss to each cheek, causing her to tremble under my hands. I lightly caress and smooth over the pink skin to soothe the sting away before I land another smack, which catches her off guard. She yelps loudly and pushes her ass out against my hand, just begging for more. "You like that. Don't you, Emma?" I growl and lower my body against her back, kissing her neck and across her shoulder. I'm grinding my cock against her flesh, and I'm sure my jeans are coated with her juices by now. I lift my body, glide both hands down each side of her body and stop just above her ass and pause, letting the anticipation build. Her body tenses, as if she expects me to spank her again, but instead, I caress and kiss each ass cheek. I retrieve a condom from my pocket, tear it open with my teeth, roll it down my length, and stroke it against her entrance a few times before pushing slightly.
My name is Regina Frame and I live in Alabama with my husband and three dogs. I've always had a love for animals and I work with charities to help raise money for homeless pets. I've been known to carry food in my car and stop on the street to feed an animal. I recently rescued a severely abused dog after trying for two months with no success. He now lives with me and my husband and he is happy and healthy today.
