I hear
music coming from down the hall as I finish putting my glass in the
dishwasher and pause, listening for a moment before going to investigate. Alex
has his bedroom door shut, which is odd, because I’ve never seen it shut except
for the first night I slept here, and I was on the other side of it.
I open the
door cautiously, though I’m not sure why I’m being cautious, and then
I lean my head into the gap curiously.
I find the
room spotless, candles burning on all available spaces, dim light coming from
the table lamp, and Alex across the room, leaning against the wall next to the
bedside table where the slow RnB tune is coming from.
Alex, in his
complete fireman costume.
“I thought you
were brushing your teeth. Why are you—” I stop talking
because he pulls away from the wall and walks to the end of the bed
where he props himself up against the dining chair randomly sitting
there. He taps his hand on the back of it in a silent gesture for me to take a
The music… the
mood lighting… the chair and the damn costume.
I finally
understand what he’s doing and can’t contain the grin as I follow his request,
entering the room to take the seat.
Alex moves to
stand over me, legs on either side of the chair as his hands trail up my neck,
gathering my hair at the top of my head.
I recognise
when the song ‘Too Close’ by Next, starts playing and I can’t help a little
laugh at the choice before Alex uses his hold of my hair to tilt my head to the
right, exposing my neck. I stop laughing but continue to smile as he leans and
kisses me on the sensitive spot he likes there and then nips my ear, sending a
rush of pleasure through my nerves.
“You ever want
something from me, all you have to do is ask, sunshine. One
all-Alex revue coming right up,” he murmurs against the
skin below my ear, knowing it’s ticklish and making me squirm.

I just LOVE Ash Hosking’s writing!! This group of people is so fun to read about!! Hosking can tell a mean story no matter the length. This is a novella and it’s a super quick and easy read. It was so good though! I really feel that Hosking titles her books so adequately. This book did Surprise Me… which is why I’m not going to go into the story at all. I would suggest you read the entire series though. It’s always fun to get the read about previous characters… it’s like catching up with old friends! Prepare yourself for a quick and fun read! Hosking can suck you in super fast and leave you satisfied, yet wanting more!! 

I received an ARC of this series with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
