I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of ‘crime family’ stories – I don’t know why – it just is what it is!
BUT this is Ann Mayburn and Ramon and Joy, Oh My!! Ramon has an obsession with Joy, but it is a sweet one – even though their first meeting was not one of Ramon’s best moments!! He was a complete jerk – but Joy stood right up to him – so he definitely has met his match!
Ann Mayburn’s writing style is one that I truly enjoy – I have a number of her books on my overworked Kindle! She has the ability to pull you into her stories and makes you care about the characters, and this book is no different. I can be angry with Roman one minute and then Ann will turn it around, so the true depth of the man and his soul shine through. I can see Joy’s angst and feel her despair, then Ann will pull something out or her bag of tricks, and Joy’s strength and backbone show up!
If you like ‘crime family’ books, this is definitely one for you! And Ann may have made a believer out of me!
With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
