A Love So Dangerous by Lili Valente
Author: Lili Valente
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Warning: This is one dark, dangerous, dirty-talking, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride. Are you ready?
I’ve got a big c*ck, a bigger bank account, and zero interest in Happily Ever After. I just want to feel alive, to look into a woman’s eyes and see something that’s going to keep my mind off all the shit I refuse to think about for an hour or two.
And then I meet her, a good girl with a body made for sin and ugly problems only a bad man can fix.
A bad man like me…
Gabe Alexander is the devil. Or an angel.
He’s a criminal hiding behind a millionaire dollar pedigree, but he also saved my life and my family. He’s the worst kind of bad news, but every time he touches me, and whispers filthy, beautiful things in my ear, all I want is more.
More of his kiss, his touch, and the dangerous, seductive things he makes me feel.
I don’t want to go bad, but the man makes it feel so damned good…
Warning Part the Second: A Love So Dangerous is the first in a three part series. It is a full-length novel that ends in a cliffhanger. It was formerly published as One Wild Night and This Wicked Rush by Jessie Evans.
Who knew that one amazing night would change Caitlin Cooney’s entire world? A LOVE SO DANGEROUS shows just how it can happen! This book is not sweet. It’s not always happy. But it’s always steamy. Always intriguing. And always, always a rush of adrenaline and emotion. This is not your ordinary romance, but man does it keep your attention.
“Anything can be done with people who love you by your side.”
Caitlin Cooney is a fighter, a survivor and a nurturer. She has taken on the responsibility of raising not only her three younger brothers but her young niece, leaving a scholarship to an exclusive prep school during her junior year to work two jobs to support the family. She doesn’t date, she rarely does anything for herself and most of the time she is more stressed out than someone twice her age trying to figure out how to keep a roof over their heads, food in their bellies and the young kids out of the system. But despite all these hardships and the support of a couple of really good friends, Caitlin is a bit scared and a bit lonely even if she won’t completely admit it. So when Gabe and she share one wild night and he offers one crazy proposition things in Caitlin’s world change in unseen ways.
Gabe Alexander is an ass. He is a player. He is everything rich, spoiled and a total contradiction of it all behind that façade. Gabe has had it all handed to him all his life, everything but feeling wanted and loved. Though that is not how Gabe presents himself and not what he thinks he wants he knows he wants Caitlin. What starts as him trying to exact some justice on some scumbags his defense attorney father has gotten off, it becomes oh so much more as Caitlin becomes first his partner in crime and then “his everything”.
“…none of us truly know what we’re capable of until we’re put in an impossible situation, until we step over the line and realize things aren’t so very different on the other side after all…”
Caitlin and Gabe are sizzling together. They feed off each other and while Gabe brings out the fierceness in Caitlin, being with Caitlin brings out the caring and wanting for more that Gabe professes he never wants. They are supposed to only be together for the summer and by the end of it go their separate ways, Gabe back to school and Caitlin with enough financial security to stop killing herself and be able to go to college. However the best laid plans and all that. As much as Caitlin wants to resist Gabe she can’t and hasn’t been able to since that first night, and maybe just maybe Gabe wants more from Caitlin than just a “fake girlfriend or a partner in crime”. What they find together is exhilarating, thrilling and scary as hell but it just might be the best love that either of them never knew they needed. Can’t wait to see what happens in the follow up to this one because this story was just a complete and total rush of emotions!!

“What is tonight about?” I ask, a shockwave of desire rocketing through me at the thought of Gabe and I naked together, though I know I’m not ready, not really, no matter what the lustful voices in my head are trying to tell me.
“It’s about convincing you I’m the best way to spend your summer.” His palms mold to my ribs as he kisses down my neck to the hollow of my throat, soft, hot kisses that make me gasp for breath and my nipples pucker in the cool, conditioned air.
He keeps trailing kisses down the center of my chest while his hands come to cup my breasts, holding one gently in each hand, carefully avoiding the places where I’m dying for him to kiss me, touch me. He continues to kiss me everywhere but there, his soft lips feathering back and forth across my ribs until my nipples are pulled so tight the sensation is almost painful.
Only then—when I’m squirming and moaning and there can be no doubt in his mind how much I crave his attention—does he take me in his mouth.
I cry out, driving my fingers into his hair and fisting tight, urging him closer as he licks and sucks and bites. Bites.
But even the biting is perfect, a flash of pain that adds to my pleasure until my breath comes fast and the world goes soft and red at the edges and there is nothing but his mouth and his tongue and the way I ache for him, burn for him, need him to spread me wide and do whatever he wants to do to me as long as he takes the ache away.
“Please, Gabe,” I breathe, clawing at his shoulders. “Please.”
“Please what?” he says, flicking his tongue across my nipple, making me flinch and cry out again. “You know what I like, Caitlin. You know I like you to beg for it.”
“Please fuck me with your mouth,” I say, the words spilling out without hesitation or anger. I’m too far gone to care what he wants me to do, so long as he gives me what I need. “Please make me come, Gabe, please. Please!”
“Lift your hips,” he says, his voice tight as his fingers fist in the sides of my panties.
I obey and Gabe makes my underwear vanish and then he is between my legs, spreading my thighs with his warm hands, mumbling something I can’t make out, but that sounds pained and reverent and sweet all at the same time.
As sweet as the first kiss he places to the center of me, one sweet, warm, tender kiss that threatens to unravel me completely.
And then the kiss becomes a swirl of his tongue and sparks shoot from my core, sizzling across my skin, and my head feels like it’s going to float right off my body and there is no more “me” to unravel, only a quivering mass of heat and need that arches closer to Gabe’s mouth, shamelessly begging for what I crave.
I bite my lip and squeeze my eyes shut, not knowing what to do with all the things he’s making me feel, all the sensation and emotion and the fear that I’m spiraling so far out of control I may never be the same again.
