May Contain Wine


This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.

Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.

Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.

That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.

Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.

He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.

But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.

Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.

Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.

But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

My Review: 4 stars 

I am all about a second chance romance and that is what I got with Calloway and Louis.

Louis and Calloway went through a bad brake-up. He left her for the military. He wanted her to live her own life and not worry about him.

Calloway was devastated. But she was determined to live her life as best she could. Calloway never saw herself as someone beautiful. She was just there.

Calloway also has a blood disorder and has to have transfusions. But she trys to not let that hold her back.

“I wasn’t fat, but I wasn’t skinny. I wasn’t pretty, but I wasn’t ugly. I wasn’t anything. I just was.”

Calloway has a blog where she shines lights on our service men and women.

Fate puts Louis and Calloway together for a car ride. But they have some issues along the way and end up spending the night on the rode.

This night will change everything.

Overall: I enjoyed the story. I think Calloway and Louis have a solid story. I love that they had a past together, from a young age, and that they knew each other in a way that no one else did.

This story gave me tears, laughter, and all the feels.
