Matter of Time - Alannah Lynne

Blurb: 
 Some might think the phrase, “you complete me” is a just cheesy line from the movies, but Lizbeth Sanders knows better…  

      In MATTER OF TIME, Lizbeth has spent the past fifteen years desperately searching for someone to fill the void left by Logan Steele’s disappearance from her life. However, rather than finding love and happiness, all she’s found is disappointment, heartache, and an ever-present longing for the man she can never have.

 Fifteen years ago, Logan Steele left the woman he loved to marry his high school sweetheart and be a father to the child he didn’t know he had. He’s always tried to do the honorable thing, to be a good husband and a great father, but despite his sacrifices and best efforts, the shaky foundation of his marriage crumbles and falls apart.

 When his identical twin surprises him with a reintroduction to Lizbeth, Logan feels like he’s been given a second chance—at life and love. But a lot can change in fifteen years, and after hurting her so badly the first time, building trust isn't just hard, it’s nearly impossible—especially when duty and obligation pulls him away again.

EXCERPT
Silencing the phone so there wouldn’t be any more interruptions, he dropped it on the table and kicked back in the chair to enjoy the show. “From where I’m sitting, this view is a million times better than any sunrise or sunset from an ocean balcony.”
A grin spread across Lizbeth’s face as she turned her head and peered over her shoulder. “I’m glad you approve.”
“Definitely approve. Work that dress down over your hips, but don’t let it just fall to the floor. Bend over nice and slow and push it down your legs.”
Her dark eyes hooded and she nodded slightly as she slid her palms down her sides to bunch the fabric at her waist, then worked it back and forth down over her hips and thighs. Slowly, erotically, as he instructed, she bent forward at the waist and eased the fabric to the floor. And then she stayed just like that, letting him look his fill of her ass with a strip of red fabric from the tiny thong tucked between her cheeks, the backs of her legs wrapped with lace-topped thigh-high stockings, and her feet tipped forward in black fuck-me pumps.
How could it be that after taking her more times than possible to count, he still wanted her as badly as the second he laid eyes on her in the club?
“Crawl up onto the bed on your hands and knees with your legs spread apart.”
As she shivered in response, he checked the thermostat on the wall. It wasn’t cold in the room, so he assumed her tremor was one of excitement, and a thrill shot through him at yet another validation of her being happy to follow the orders he enjoyed giving.
They’d had enough conversation about their future to know they both intended to fight for it, but they hadn’t figured out the details yet. She lived at the coast. He lived in Charlotte. On a good traffic day, they were looking at a four and a half-hour trip. His business kept him busy and on the road far more than he liked. She ran a business, as well. His business was established in Charlotte, and while it seemed like a good opportunity for her to move to a large metropolis with unlimited opportunities for an event planner, he wondered if he was selfish to ask.
And what about the kids? He could never leave Charlotte as long as they lived there, and he couldn’t ask them to uproot their lives. Especially not when their mother lived there as well.
Fuck. Why did life have to always be so damned complicated and full of twists and curves?
“Why did I think you would join me on this bed?” Lizbeth asked, breaking into his thoughts and bringing his mind back down from the higher realms of thinking, where plans for the future resided, to the basic, primal thoughts that had propelled men for all of eternity.
His woman—hell yeah, he could really get used to that—was on her hands and knees in the middle of the bed, waiting for him to claim her, and he was all up in his head when he should be all up in her.
Shaking off the fear and worry and concern for the future, he pushed out of the chair and stalked toward the bed. “I’m joining you all right.” He slapped his palm over her naked ass, causing her to jump and gasp with surprise, then moan with pleasure as he stroked the silky smooth globe. “Stay as you are and let me enjoy this view for a moment longer while I grab some toys.”


REVIEW
Let me start by saying that Alannah Lynne's Heat Wave series just gets better and better with each book!

I honestly believe Matter of Time is the best one we have seen yet. There are so many new elements in this book that make it so great and fresh for the series. I've loved all the previous books and fell in love with her male leads and the relationships they fall into, but Matter of Time captured my attention from the very first page with how different it is from the rest.

Sixteen years ago Logan and Lizbeth were in a serious relationship and in love with one another. That all changed when he found out that his ex, Bobbi Jo, had had his baby. He decided to put his child first and to do that he would have to marry Bobbi Jo and in the process broke both his own and Lizbeth's hearts.

Sixteen years later and neither of them have moved on. Logan is now in process of getting divorced while Lizbeth has never had quite a serious relationship except for Kevin Mazze. Kevin and Lucas, Logan's twin, work in cahoots to bring Lizbeth and Logan back together.

Can Lizbeth and Logan finally find the happy ever after they've dreamed of together but has the years apart done too much damage to repair?

What I loved about this book - Hello, sex club! When I realized that the setting for where Logan and Lizbeth met up again was a sex club, I couldn't believe it, but I loved it! This seemed so different from the prior Heat Wave novels, but that's what I liked about it. I also liked that although it broke his heart, Logan decided to be a stand up dad and raise his daughter because he loved her. As a single mom, this kind of made me swoon. I also loved the fact that Kevin helped conspire to bring these two back together. Oh! And Logan is a twin. There is another one of him! (Does that mean Lucas will be getting his own book? I sure hope so!) Like I said there are a ton of elements blended together that just has me loving Matter of Time.

Alannah Lynne is admittedly my favorite author and with each book she writes she just shows me exactly why that is. Not only is she amazingly talented, her sense of humor is wonderful. I love the bit of humor that can be found in each of her books along with some snark and some hot, steamy scenes. The Heat Wave novels are written to be read over and over again and Matter of Time is just another book on my shelf that will be getting more than one read through.

Once again Alannah Lynne has written a five star (If I could give it more, than I would) book. Her writing never fails to put a smile on my face and I would definitely recommend this one to all.

The Heat Wave series is a great series to read anytime, but would make such great summer/beach reads!

Going All In: Heat Wave Series #4

A good ol’ Georgia boy teaches a Myrtle Beach princess how to get down and dirty… 


It’s been two years since Callie Holden helped put her father in prison, and since then, she’s learned a lot about life and herself. To Callie’s surprise, she actually likes working and has discovered money is a tool to be used for good… or evil. She also realizes even though she’s traveled the globe, she’s never truly lived. She longs for adventure and to experience a wildly passionate romance. The last place she expects to realize her dreams is in the arms of the ever-surly man she’s dubbed “The Beast.” But when Callie and Wade Neumann are forced to work together, unexpected chemistry changes everything. In Wade's arms, Callie finds the excitement and passion she’s been looking for, as well as a few other surprises. 

Wade Neumann has spent the last year burying the pain and humiliation of being left at the altar by a woman who used him as a novelty toy before settling down with someone more like herself—someone rich. He’s lost himself in a stream of nameless females since then, but instead of the trysts helping him heal, he’s only grown colder and more jaded. He hasn’t moved on with his life. He’s merely stuck going through the motions… until he meets Callie Holden, a woman who looks like his ex but is actually the opposite—sweet, compassionate, loyal, and most importantly, not wealthy. Or so he thinks. Because just as he starts to believe things with Callie are real and true, she gives him thirty million reasons to doubt all over again.
