Farrah Langley and Xavier Kane have mutual friends. In
fact, they met at the wedding of Donovan Steele and Natalie
Ford. But it was supposed to be a hit-it-and-quit-it
affair, not the long-term torrid relationship their union
has become. Farrah, realizing she's getting in deeper than
either of them wants, calls it quits. But quitting might
not be so easy.
Brenda Jackson has written so many romances with such a huge
and intertwined cast of characters that it's sometimes hard
to keep up. I guess that's why the first few chapters of
her romances sometimes seem a little too laden with back
story, probably necessary to ground new readers in her vast
story-world. However, each and every one of her couples is
memorable as are her supporting characters. That's why it's
always a treat to revisit a pair as hot and bothered as
Farrah and Xavier.
Jackson is at the top of her game when it comes to writing
hot and heavy love scenes wherein the emotion and the sex
get equal billing.
Xavier is one of the six men (all sworn bachelors) who are
godbrothers because their fathers were best friends in
college. After Donovan's marriage, Xavier has no intention
of falling. But Farrah does things to him, makes him want
things he never thought he would want. So there were five
bachelors...and now there are four.
BACHELOR UNLEASHED is another Jackson winner. I can't wait
to see which of the remaining godbrothers will be next.
They had a hot, fleeting affair Farrah Langley has never
forgotten. Attorney-to-the-rich-and-famous Xavier Kane was
tender, sexy, attentive—and ravished her body. Everything
she ever wanted in a lover. Getting together with him again
in New York is a fantasy come true. She certainly doesn't
expect the footloose bachelor to change his ways. And the
burned-by-love mediator isn't looking for forever.
But Xavier is.
There's something about Farrah…something that touches him
deep in his soul…something that keeps him coming back. So
when fate brings them together again, Xavier's ready to pick
up where they left off. But this time around, he wants more.
Can he convince the lean, leggy beauty that he's finished
playing the field? That he wants only one woman in his bed,
in his arms—in his heart?
