When a biker chick cuts him off in traffic then parks in his spot at the courthouse, lawyer Charlie Vernon is hot under the collar—and it has more to do with her perfectly shaped backside, clad in black leather, than the sultry California heat. When he meets her later at a diner, pretty in pink, Charlie discovers she’s a woman with a secret—and he’ll do anything to keep her safe.
Hiding her true identity, Roxanne Abernathy doesn’t do men in expensive silk suits who are richer than sin. Charlie Vernon is cool, good-looking and wealthy—a bad, bad combination in her mind. But Roxie has a problem. A madman intent on killing her is on the loose and Charlie is the only man who can help. And she doesn’t know what she wants more from him—justice or lust.
Review: From the top of his perfectly styled hair to his shiny wingtips, attorney Charlie Vernon is everything Roxie left behind in her former life. No one would expect a society girl to be working shifts at an L.A. diner, much less riding around on a Harley.
Charlie isn’t your typical kind of guy, so he uses his resources to discover Roxie’s real identity. When he realizes she is in trouble, he becomes her knight in shining armor. The only question is whether Roxie can pick up the threads of her old life or will she run forever?
In Full Throttle Yearning, author Aurora Rose Lynn fans the flames of desire with a smoking hot Alpha who yearns to get closer to a certain sassy waitress. This is a fun story because of the interaction between the characters. The chemistry is evident, especially when they explore their mutual attraction.
Add some drama in the form of a man hell-bent on vengeance, and Charlie’s protective instincts immediately surface. Roxie’s desire for freedom puts her at odds with Charlie’s desire to build a relationship. The sexual tension helps move the story forward at a steady pace.
It’s a fairly quick read that would be perfect for a weekend of entertainment. There’s not a lot of depth to the story, but it serves the purpose as a sizzling story.
