Sometimes the best thing a good girl can do is make a bad decision.Jessica has always been the girl with her head in the clouds and her nose in a book, only dating the “nice guys”. But when rough-around-the-edges Viking-biker-god, Mad Max, and his precocious little girl move onto her street, Jessica falls hard and fast for both of them.
Max is no stranger to women wanting to share his bed—and he’s always been more than happy to oblige them all. He’s lived wild all his life—that is, until a daughter shows up on his doorstep and he meets a redheaded angel down the block.
There’s nothing more he wants than to claim Jessica as his, to bring the gorgeous spitfire to his bed. But a man like him doesn’t get a happy ending with a woman like her. He’s got a whole other life, one he’s kept secret for good reason.
If Jessica found out what he really is, there’s no way she could love him. He should keep his hands to himself. But he’s Mad Max—he’s never done the right thing, and he’s not going to start now.
Warning: Contains a dominating alpha male who’s a lot more than he seems, and a good girl with a swirl of flavors under her vanilla.
What better way to start off the new year than with an alpha male who makes you weak at the knees and a heroine who has enough sass underlying her prim and proper ways to make that alpha male weak in his knees . This is my first Harper Kincaid book and I wasn’t disappointed. Harper has a unique way of telling this story with a fusion of the past mixing with the present and laying out a HEA for the future. But what is a happily ever after without a few bumps in the road to get there.
I really loved the plot of this book, my only complaint would’ve been that I wanted more of the back story and a little more detail of what happened in the present. I feel when you read a great book you always want more. Call me greedy but I wanted it all ! I recommend this book for a sweet and slightly steamy read where the good girl next door could very well end up with the bad boy mom always warned you about.

The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF…Born in California and raised in South Florida, I’ve moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I’ve worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.
What else? Hmm…I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it’s slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh ’til they snort. I’m a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil’ town, Vienna, Virginia.
