All This Time by Zee Irwin
She’s a book nerd and a cat whisperer. He’s scarred and intimidating. Can the beautiful, quirky bookstore owner tame the beast in the detective?
I admitted the book boyfriends by the dozen in my Cat’s Cradle bookstore had taken precedence over dating in real-life. I wanted the real thing, an everlasting true love, a man holding me nightly, but the journey to finding that guy wasn’t so easy. I’d kissed a few frogs along the way, and maybe my quirky sense of style chased a few away. One thing was for sure, the heroines in my romance novels made this falling in love thing seem easier than this.
When Detective Jace showed up in my life unexpectedly, I wondered if we both had what it took to get over our pasts and into the future together.
Women took one look at me, then looked away, leaving me wondering if I’d live alone the rest of my life. My beastly look was perfect for work. As a detective I could intimidate the most hardened criminals. But when Lily entered my life, all I wanted was for her to see how soft she made me feel inside.
When the bad guys got too close to Lily and her bookstore, I worked overtime to protect her. It’s my job, it’s what I do - but would she let me protect her for life?
This ♥billionaire, bad boy♥ story will surprise you with cute cats, a little humor, and steamy bits while delivering a Happy Ever After that satisfies. This standalone is also part of the interconnected Fated Loves series.
