But his eyes were languorous Lazy and half lidded yet intense A hundred looks in one I didn't like it Couldn't read it At least with the horny jerk offs I knew where I stoodI wondered what the worst thing you could do and still only get sent to a medium security prison was I hoped not to ever learn the answer And I hoped to heaven inmate 802267 hadn't signed up for any of the day's progra I want to make you feel a hundred things at once powerless and aggressive needy and pushy grateful and greedyCara McKenna seems to be throwing out winners left and right Everything I read by her is golden and Hard Time was no exceptionAnnie Goodhouse is a good ole southern girlpolite and ladylike sweet and tenderhearted But her life hasn't always been wonderful The reason she moved to this run down podunk northern town was to escape an abusive boyfriend Understandably she's a bit shy when it comes to men So it's a bit of a surpriseeven to herself I thinkthat she agrees to do a prison outreach program one day a week On her first day on the job during the first few moments of panic while walking through the groupings of prisoners that she is now expected to tutor she spots a manis drawn to him in a way that she hasn't been in forever 802267 Those digits imprinted on my brain burned black as a brand he watched me But not the way the others did Eric Collier feels the pull toward Annie He knows their situation isn't ideal but in the five years he's been inside Cousin's Correctional Facility and even in his lifetime before his incarceration he's never felt this way toward a woman His trailer park life in a trashy town didn't really give him much opportunity to meet classy women He notices the way Annie reacts to his presence One day the small flirtation between them turns a bit heated And so against all rules Eric writes Annie a letter An innocent letter And he gives her an out telling her if she wants another letter wear red the next timeI drummed my fingertips on the hanger and bit my lip I could throw a cardigan over it Just let a little of the red peak through A little wink of whorefulness Good girl Annie can't resist the pull and one letter turns into weekly letters until she starts writing him back And then one day Eric is paroled MY THOUGHTS What I loved so much about this book is how Eric is portrayed He's a badass that's for sure He's an alpha he's got a rocking body and is tough as hell But he also has some major vulnerabilities and is uite unsure of himself at times He has a learning disability that makes it hard for him to write so his initial letters to Annie are a bit awkward at first It's endearing how these two open up to each other through their letters saying things that they never would in real life The letters enable them to be honest with each other in a way they couldn't face to face In this regard Eric gets to be tender and so gentlemanly leaving his badass self at the door I don't think you've got any clue what it means that you let me write these letters It gets me so riled up it hurts But I like it I imagine it's some spell you've got me under Makes me want to be all kinds of ways with you Helpless sometimes But darker stuff too Like I want to punish you for making me this crazy But nothing bad I promise Nothing you wouldn't be okay with The kind of stuff lovers get up toThere's no need for him to put up a tough front and so his real self comes through He's a good person in jail for doing something that I could hardly blame him for It's NOT any kind of sexual crime or murderjust to make that clear He did commit a crime and he's serving his sentence but I feel confident that most people would understand his situationAnnie on the other hand gets to open up to Eric both emotionally and sexually Since leaving her ex she's not been with a man Her five year dry spell coupled with the fact that she had very little experience before leaving him means that she's uite repressed in that respect But Eric's honesty and their Friday meetings under the watchful eyes of the guards keep their relationship very low keyWhat kept me from giving this five stars was a couple of things We never find out exactly what prodded Eric into committing his crime It is alluded to and a couple of details are given but the situation is largely left unsaid Also the fact that Eric is a convict and Annie's father is a highway patrolman is brought up but this is a situation that is never resolved She never tells her parents which I'm sure she'll have to do eventually but that is a hurdle that I wish had been addressed I felt like there was a lot left up to the reader's imagination with regards to these issuesI probably don't make love I probably fuck I'd try for you if you asked me to though You'd have to tell me how it's different It just seems like something a different kind of man would doHowever the sexual aspect of this story was amazing Eric and Annie don't even touch for a very long timeit's the sensuality that smolders between them at first and then in their letters that was so hot Then there's what their relationship turns into that really makes this story stick for me This is a couple that I not only root for but I see them working with very little effort They just fit There are moments of humornamely when Annie is fighting with herself about her good southern girl upbringing clashing with her wants and needs of today And there's just them these two good people in bad situations both completely unsure of themselves It's as if they learn who they are by reaching out for someone else It's uite beautiful actually A timid heroine and a wonderful romantic totally different kind of herodefinitely a recommended read Copy provided by the publisher via Net Galley

My pounding heart went still eerie as birds fallen silent in the wake of a gunshotHe was big Tall frame wide shoulders but not burly His near black hair was due for a cut curling under his ears Dark brows dark stubble dark lashes and eyesAnd he was handsome So handsome it broke your heartA deck of cards was split between his hands paused midshuffle Some of the men wore navy scrub tops and 6 Are not enough to describe how much I loved this book Stars And he told me about the things he wanted to do to me the places he wanted to take me if he could The things about me that took his mind off his daily life and roused his body in idle moments And I wondered if he wasn't a bank robber after all the way he kept making off with my heart I fell in love with this book I fell in love with the writing I fell completely head over heels in love with the hero This book; no review I can write will ever do it justice Cara McKenna is a genius her stories will grab you by the heart and never let go She doesn't blow sunshine and rainbows up your ass She gives you real characters real emotion that is so well written it's almost palpable Did I like this book? No I fucking LOVED this book I wish I could give it 6 stars This is a story that will stay with me for a while with characters that I will never forgetAnnie Goodhouse is a good southern girl that hasn't had the best of luck with men She doesn't have to be warned away from the bad boys she experienced first hand what the feel of abuse at the hands of a man feels like and she's shut herself off Annie is a librarian and her new role takes her to work as an outreach librarian in the town's medium security prison And then everything changes when she meets him in a place where the worst of the bad boys areEric or inmate number 802267 as she first knows him catches her eye right way But it's not his attitude leering or catcalling that snags her because he doesn't do any of those things That stare That unreadable expression an impossible mix of apathy and fascination coldness and seduction Eric was not at all what I expected from reading the book's blurb He's not some ultimate bad boy an asshole or a hard ass He's simply a man that committed a crime a crime that he would commit all over again if given the chance But beneath that tough and muscled exterior there exists a soul of a gentle and romantic man What first begins as a simple lesson in literacy begins to turn into something much deeper when he gives Annie the first letter His attention had become some strange dark private treat to brighten the toughest day of my week and I'd come to crave it This book has some of the most amazingly written sexual tension I have ever read The way that Miss McKenna portrays the angst lust and emotion that these 2 people share through simple letters was incredible It almost felt like Eric was talking directly to me His letters to Annie made me swoon at the same time it made me lust after him uncontrollablyAnnie was such an amazing heroine She was strong yet a little bit broken at the same time She wasn't mousy or shy or some wallflower I think that's what ultimately made this book so good for me the fact that both characters had such an amazing balance of realness to them You can feel how much Annie struggles with her feelings for Eric She doesn't know the full story of why he was put away and that scares her but at the same time she finds herself falling for him and with each letter Were bad violent crimes only done by bad violent men? Could a man who was fundamentally bad make a woman feel the way Eric Collier had made me feel all these weeks? Eric stole my heart He was so vulnerable and sweet but without coming off as weak I want to be someone who deserves to be with somebody like you Cara McKenna give you two incredibly real characters that each struggle with their own incarceration While Eric has been shut away in a prison cell for 5 years Annie has shut herself off from feeling anything sexual after the abuse she suffered at the hands of her own ex As the book progresses you see them slowly grow closer together and their bond fully form They're both scared they both have their weaknesses but the connection between them is simply undeniableThis book gives you everything; incredible characters erotic love scenes and an emotional gripping love story between 2 people who couldn't be different but yet fit together The author doesn't give you an ending that's wrapped up in a perfect little bow and I think I really loved that in this story It was fitting Anything else wouldn't have been true to the characters or the plot Is there a HEA? view spoilerYes though it's of a HFN It was extremely satisfying and I have 0 complaints hide spoiler
