Blurb:
It started as a simple search for a landscape designer…

I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into Ward Landscaping & Design.

The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.

Of course I hired him.

I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile—though a rare trait—is truly infectious.
He’s every woman’s dream—a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it.

Unfortunately that lucky woman can’t be me.
Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve promised to devote myself to my husband.

So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?

What can you expect?

– An Alpha Hero (who is a bit of an asshole 😉 )
– Super Steamy Scenes
– An Adorable Beagle Puppy
– SOOO MUCH ANGST

 

 

Excerpt:
“Let me know if you need anything, Marcel.”

“Sure will, Gabby.”

I grab the door handle, but not without noticing the smirk on his face.

When I close the doors, I can’t help sneaking a peek as I put my tea back in the fridge. Mr. Ward—Marcel—is standing with a shovel in hand. He stabs it into the ground, leaving it standing upright, and then he crosses one arm over the other, reaches down for the hem of his shirt, and pulls it up, right over his head.

With the sun beaming directly on him, of course he stands out. His tan skin is unmarked minus one long scar right below his right rib. He’s sculpted but not bulky, almost like he does just as much cardio as lifting to get his lean, toned appearance. His abs lead down to a sharp vee that disappears beneath his belt buckle and jeans. A few hairs jump out from beneath the buckle as he grabs the handle of the shovel.

As he snatches the shovel out, he pauses midway. My eyes travel up to find his, and it’s then I realize I’ve been staring. He narrows his eyes a bit, but a smug smile lightly tugs at the corners of his lips.

“Oh, shit!”

I back away, bumping into the nearest counter edge. When I hear one of the men yell something, I look again, glad Marcel has moved away from the windows of the doors to tend to the person. I hurry back upstairs, and this time I don’t look back, even though a small part of me is dying to see those abs one more time.

THE MAN I CAN'T HAVE
Shanora Williams

I absolutely loved and devoured The Man I Can’t Have by Shanora Williams. It was steamy, emotional and full of angst. I could not put this book down until I finished it and then I immediately wanted to pick it up and read it again. This book does contain cheating, that is clear in the blurb, and yet the story was captivating and consumed me.

Gabrielle Moore is starting a new chapter in her life with her husband. They are newlyweds in a new home, in a new town. She may have not been swept away, but she loves her husband. She misses him when he travels for work, which he does often. She spends her time with her art and deciding to landscape her yard. Enter Marcel Ward. Sexy, charming, and cocky landscaping architect. Though you can feel their instant connection, their build-up was slow as they got to know each other.

Marcel Ward is older, hardworking and a very determined man. Gabrielle is younger, smart and a bit naïve. She wants to be a good wife, but so much is not as it seems in any of their lives. When Marcel and Gabrielle connect, it was hot, steamy and the sparks flew right off the pages. I devoured their story and will desperately wait for the final book in the duet.
