Excerpt:

“What I want is to stop your pain. If I could have my wish it would be…I’d want our child to have lived.” His expression stilled and grew serious.

“Let’s be honest, Lee. Any child you and I have we’d destroy, after we destroyed each other.” She made to move around him and he stepped with her, blocking her pass. “Lee, move.”

“Take it back!” He frowned with cold fury.

Michelle adjusted her smile. “Why?”

“Don’t you ever dismiss our child’s death. Take it back!” he said through clenched teeth.

Michelle, shaken by the threat in his tone, had to lower her gaze. “Okay.”

Lee’s voice dropped an octave when he spoke again. “We lost our baby. It’s my fault. I should have protected you, trusted my instincts.”

“Lee, please stop.”

“I’ll make them pay. I’ll kill ’em all—”

“Stop it, dammit!” Lee blinked at her, confused. “Stop, okay? No more violence. I can’t take it.”

He touched her and she shrugged off his hand. Lee persisted and she was forced into his arms. Soon hers, of their own accord, were circling his waist. He kissed the top of her head. Stroked her hair.

“My first priority is you. I had to make sure you were okay, Michelle. Now that you are we’re starting again. Nothing has changed between us.” He relaxed his hold on her and brushed her cheeks with the backs of his fingers. She tensed over how soothing his touch was. With mild force, Lee grabbed her face in both hands. He brought his forehead down to hers until their skulls met. Michelle winced over the burn it drove through her brow, and gripped his wrist, trying hard to free herself. But his lips covered hers before she could manage the break. A crushingly needy kiss followed. She softened under its weight.

“Forgive me.” He breathed into her mouth, trying to pry her lips apart for another kiss. “Damn it, Michelle, forgive me, baby. Don’t make me beg.”

Michelle lowered her hands from his wrists. The caress of his lips inspired a trickle of love, sparking forbidden desires for him in her heart. What the hell was wrong with her? How could she even stomach the thought of them, together, now? Yet she could. It would be her secret truth. She loved him so badly, the truth hurt.

I will post my reviews of The Heist and For the Love of Chocolat later in the day under a separate post.  🙂

 

Review: The Golden Chalice

This is the final installment of a gritty, no holds barred story about a thief (who wants out) and the boss that she fell in love with years ago.  You would think after everything that these two have been through that Michelle (Chocolat) would give up.  Well, in a sense she did in the beginning of the book.

Grieving for the loss of her baby, getting shot and then for the topper, her own sister’s betrayal, I’d give up.  Leave it to her boss/lover Lee grovel at some point.  For some reason, I didn’t understand Lee in this installment.  He left me cold and at one point, I really wanted to slap him upside his head.  When Lee finally got his crap together and Michelle realized how much she truly did love Lee, did I start coming around.

I felt like Sasha and Kumar were the most annoying secondary characters that I’ve read in a while.  I didn’t like Sasha in “The Heist” and this book just made me dislike her more.  Where was the loyalty to blood, her sister?  No where in my mind.  She let Kumar dictate everything and their betrayal was beyond belief.

In the end, I truly did enjoy The Golden Chalice.  The characters were unconventional, non-conformist and there was just enough twists and turns to make this a page turner for me.
