There’s nothing like a good-‘ol-boy wolf. And ace security expert Ricky Lee Reed serves, seduces, and protects with all the right moves…

Sure, Toni Jean-Louis Parker has to be the responsible oldest sister to a crazy-brilliant clan of jackal siblings. But now she’s cutting loose for some hot, sweaty, no-commitments fun—and the sexy, slow-talking, swift-moving predator assigned to keep her family safe is just the right thing to shapeshift her love life into overdrive. Trouble is, he’s starting to get all obsessive wolf on her every time he looks in her direction…

Getting serious about anyone isn’t in Ricky Lee Reed’s plans. Hell, even now he doesn’t really have a plan—outside of catching whomever is threatening this dangerously brilliant family. But the more he gets of Toni, the more he’s howling for her. And whatever it takes to convince her what they have is everything, well, this wily wolf is down for the sizzling chase…

“Hot shape-shifters and even hotter passion.” —New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

Review- 4 stars!
I adore Shelly Laurenston! Her characters are always quirky, unique and fun! We got to see a lot of old characters in this book and it was fun to see updates on her characters. Highly recommend this book! I have yet to be disappointed when reading one of Laurenston’s books:)

Lauren Dane – Lush

3 1/2 stars
This is the 3rd book in series. I think the series needs to read in order to understand the other characters. I liked the book, but not my favorite. I’ve read all of Lauren Dane’s books and this one was good but not her best. Lots of character conflict. I thought Mary could have given a little more without focusing soooo much on her career as a chef. While they characters had some chemistry I thought it just seemed forced. It was a fun little contemporary romance read though.
I downloaded this book for review from netgalley.com

This is the 3rd DELICIOUS Novel and features Mary and Damien…

USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane delivers a second serving of sexy in her new Delicious novel—in which taste and temptation make up a sweet recipe…

Mary Whaley has her hands full running a successful catering company and overseeing her supper club. She’s got everything she ever wanted—or so she thought. When she meets ridiculously hot and very dirty rock star Damien Hurley at her friend’s engagement party, the attraction she feels is overpowering—and she isn’t about to deny herself.

Damien is used to a hard and fast life. He and two of his brothers started a band when they were all in high school—then they hit the big time and stayed there. He’s also a legendary madman on the stage and in the bedroom. But when he meets Mary, something clicks, and the bad boy starts thinking he may have finally found something good.

What begins as a series of fleeting trysts soon get much more complicated. Damien can’t figure out why Mary doesn’t want more from him. And before long it’s Damien who wants more of Mary. But it turns out Mary is no stranger to the celebrity news and he’s got a very big job ahead of him—proving that he’s worth more than a one-night stand…
