Never Say Love by Lauren Hawkeye
Posted by brriske
Bound by a vow with his friends, hotel tycoon Nathan Archer refuses to settle down and tie the knot. His only commitment is to bachelorhood. Granted, that contract was made when he was 15 years old… and in a treehouse. Still, a promise is a promise. And Nate takes his promises seriously.
But when cute little Eleanor Marshall walks back into his life, this blast from the past is no longer the timid little girl he used to know. When Ellie propositions him for a night of sizzling, unattached sex, Nate can’t refuse. Besides, it’s only one night. And Nate is never going to settle down.
Never say never…
**This book was previously published as Never Say Love by Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye**
The chemistry between Nate and Ellie is phenomenal and is born from two people who have known each other most of their lives. There are themes of Dominance and submission but not so strong that this could truly be labeled a BDSM romance. The sex scenes are hot and push the book into mature reader territory, but I really enjoyed the storytelling and how Nate comes to realize that some things, and some people, are worth breaking a childhood vow over.
