A man never wanted a woman as much as he wants her.

Merrick Rocha is the kind of man who makes a woman yearn for more. And for Rachael DeSalvo, he's the kind of man who could easily fit into her picture of happily-ever-after. With each touch, each kiss, her body is thrilled as she never knows what to expect next. Their wedding day-and night-are no exception.

Now, as they come together as one, free to trust as deeply as their bodies connect, Rachael is finally ready to . . . 

So this is the conclusion to the series, which has three books prior to this novella, and this novella is really just an epilogue to the series, so it’s not really a novella I would recommend to anyone who hadn’t read the books prior to this, you are going to be missing out on way to much character development to actually appreciate the novella.

Personally, I felt like as an epilogue (which is really what this novella is) is kind of overkill, I think it would have been a great tail end of the last book, but as a novella I think it’s a bit overkill. There is very little character development in this story, and more than that everything that happens in this novella is one hundred predictable, it’s the ended everyone who has read the series would expect for Merrick and Rachael.

I really didn’t fall in love with the series, so I wasn’t invested enough in the characters to really enjoy this installment the way a person who enjoyed the series would. I had a hard time connecting with the characters in the books prior to this, I felt like they just didn’t act in a authentic manner, but I can see how this conclusion works.

In my opinion this is one of the better written stories in this series, and I could easily recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the series before this installment. It is also a bit heavy on the heat side, so if that’s not your thing then this isn’t your novella.
