TAKEN HOME RUTH CARDELLO
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?MY REVIEW:
When she agreed to be in friend’s wedding Chelle Landon had no idea it would forever change her life. What she did know is she was the last single female in Fort Mavis, Texas, a 25-year-old virgin and had no idea what to do with her life since there were no single men left to marry.
At least not ones that she would take a second to consider. They were too much like brothers for goodness sake. Here she was at the point and age where she was so very ready to give her V-card away. As she stood at the altar looking at the guest the first few rows give her no hope. Sure she wanted to wait to give herself to the man she loved on her wedding night but damn if she turned 26 she would be a lost cause no man would want her for sure. As she continued her search her eyes happen upon a tall, gorgeous, and blue eyed devil staring straight at her. Just as they make eye contact he winks.
Mason Thorne a senator from California and a friend of the brother of the bride and the couple themselves. He came with and agenda for being there. You see he arrived late for the wedding because one of the last women he slept with turned out to be another senator’s crazy obsessed daughter. To get her off his scent he told her that he was engaged to a sweet beautiful girl from Texas. That she had been a slip back into his womanizing ways and that he was on his way to Texas to a wedding to meet her and confess and beg her forgiveness. She didn’t believe him he said he would bring back pictures to her.
She wasn’t happy but she agreed even though she wanted to come. So now he needed to get Chelle to agree to be his fake fiancée since he knew she was the only single female in town. So he stood at the back of the church figuring out just how he was going to talk her into this since she looked like the type a girl that was the happily ever after kinda a girl. For some reason though he just couldn’t take his eyes off of her. She was everything he didn’t know that he would want, odd.
Chelle could feel Mason watching her so as they were exiting the church she asked David her escort who he was. He said nothing but bad news and no one said things but bad news and that no one nice needed to be hanging around with him. Hence her she noted. As Mason waited for her she decided she would ask him to be her one-night stand. So she asks David for a condom he starts to protest until she brings up a sore subject for him. Then he just hands it over. She steps on her tiptoes and gives him a kiss on the cheek.
At that moment it gives Mason a weird feeling in his chest and he can’t describe it. He has never experienced it before.
After the pictures she goes over to introduce herself and there’s instant chemistry for them both. Which scares the living hell out of Mason which even though he would love to bed her in a NY minute he couldn’t for her sake and his.
For Chelle in that moment she knew he was the perfect man to give herself to. Follow this couple's journey to discovery. See if Chelle can break down Mason’s walls or will Mason’s so called friend make him think less of himself to even try? I give this 5++++ stars. Provided by netgalley.com. Follow us at:
