Playboy Mason Thorne is nothing short of complicated. Though he was a movie star at a young age, his life took a downward spiral when he turned to drugs after losing his mother. He cleaned up his act and became a senator but still keeps his distance from most everyone—including his own father. There are plenty of women around, but most are gone by morning.
Twenty-five-year-old Chelle Landon thinks she must be the last virgin in Texas. She’s worried if she doesn’t remedy it soon, she’ll stay one forever. She attends yet another small-town wedding where the last single man her age is officially off the market, until sexy politician Mason Thorne appears. He’s the answer to her prayers, if one can pray for something that decadent.
He needs a cover story, not another lover. Chelle’s on a mission to lose her virginity, no matter what. Will he break her heart or will she heal his?
I’m lucky enough to get a copy of this book from NetGalley.
Ever since I started reading this series, I’ve been curious about Mason and Dean’s characters the most. That’s why I was excited when I learned that the 3rd book is Mason’s story. And all those anticipation and excitement didn’t go to waste because this book didn’t disappoint.
Even though Mason and Chelle’s first meeting was almost like a cliche, for me it felt like it was meant for them to meet that way. How opposite their characters well was pretty evident form the onset of events until the last page but those differences made their story even much more interesting and enjoyable.
I love how this characters developed throughout the story and a how they worked their way to loving each other. Mason really is my favorite character in this series and this story made him even more endearing to me. He’s very much flawed but I liked how he tried to be better. Chelle and her family was adorable too.
And once again, this is not just a story of love but of friends and family and how important they are. It’s very much a Ruth Cardello story but a little sexier than her other novels and series.
