There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .
Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .
There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .
Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .
There is such a thing as . . .
As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .
“Off Limits” is what Archer Hunt has always tried to remember when it comes to Ellie Wheaten. He met her when she was under age for him, hurt, searching for her path in life. The last thing she needed was him around to distract her or remind her how royally things had messed up. Archer moved on and Ellie grew up. Archer never forgot about Ellie, keeping track of her from the shadows, as the old saying goes nothing stay hidden long. Ellie and Archer have been working in the same building and have the same friends now.
Reading the first two and a half books in this series you can see there is chemistry between the two. Why they are fighting it was always the question? However in this book we get to see why, we also get to feel the passion being restrained jump of the pages. Jill Shalvis does a fantastic job of making the reader frustrated for these two characters wishing they would “just do it already” LOL. The sexual tension aside you see how much the two care about the others happiness too. I had been anxiously waiting for this next book and was not disappointed.
I loved reading the lengths Archer went to mess up Ellie’s dates and then shrug it off when confronted. Ellie and her rumors about Archer that kept him from dating as well showed us how she felt. There are such strong emotions flowing in the pages of this book. From parts that made me crack up laughing, to the sadness in Ellie and Archers past, Jill makes you feel it all. I am over the moon thrilled that this book was written and shared with us readers. So as I always say, find your favorite spot grab this book and settle in for a great read!
