Sam Crescent delights with this sexy short story. Ace Heart is the kind of bad boy hero women dream of. The type of bad boy who is really a good guy! Trixie Dean is a good girl who has finally decided to stop living the life she'd never planned for herself. She wants to see what it really is she wants and I couldn't help but admire her for that. She definitely didn't take the easy way out and it cost her some problems. But she is strong and is dealing with the fallout of her decision. I loved how well these characters were developed especially for a shorter story. It was interesting to see the relationship between Ace and his mother and I was so grateful to get the insight into his feelings for Trixie. I enjoyed the fact that this story was so heartfelt, yet full of heat I've come to expect from this combination when it comes to this author. I was not disappointed. I love my romances with curvy heroines and Trixie is a leading lady with doubts and yet she doesn't let them stop her from moving forward. I couldn't help but admire her. So if you are a fan of big beautiful ladies and the alpha men who love them, this one is a great choice for you.
