Rooke Blackheath has spent enough time in juvie to know that he really doesn’t want to go to jail. The food sucks, the clothes itch, and there are absolutely no women in sight. Well…none he wants to fuck, anyway.
He should probably stop boosting cars, but the money is stellar and the high is out of this world. And why should he turn his back on something that sets his soul on fire anyway?
The answer to that question comes in an unexpected form—a petite five-foot-three firecracker named Sasha, who refuses to give him the time of day no matter how thick he lays on the charm.
Rooke’s not easily deterred, though. Just like the watches he builds from scratch, Rooke knows all too well how women tick. Women are a game to him. A game he always wins.
Sasha doesn’t stand a chance.
Sasha Connor’s life has been permanently derailed since her son died five years ago. You wouldn’t know it to look at her, of course. She has a great job, a beautiful house, and caring friends. Every week, she hosts a book club featuring the sexiest, most romantic stories on the planet, and every week she falls for a new fictional knight in shining armor.
Fictional men are perfect. They don’t hurt you. They don’t break your heart. They don’t cheat on you after your child dies, and they rarely ever leave the toilet seat up.
When Rooke Blackheath shows up at Sasha's workplace, it’s clear he’s nothing like the men who grace the pages of her favorite books. Dangerous, arrogant, sharp-tongued and sarcastic, Rooke’s not the kind of guy she needs in her life. Not to mention the fact that he’s eleven years her junior.
As far as Sasha is concerned, Rooke doesn’t just live in a different world. He lives in a different galaxy altogether. She’d like to keep it that way, but fate appears to have other plans.
When Cinderella lost her shoe, Prince Charming showed up at her door.
When Sasha Connor loses her book, an entirely different kind of rogue comes a-knocking.

WOW, Callie just keeps blowing me away with her Hot Alpha Men.
"Rooke Blackheath isn't a man, though. He's some sort of myth that no one really believes in until they lay eyes on him for themselves."
Since I had the awesome pleasure of meeting Callie Hart and Jonny James (covermodel) in New Orleans last month, it was easy for me to picture him as Rooke throughout this story. He fits the character perfectly. Now, how to review this without giving spoilers away.....
Sasha is broken, she has had a loss that no woman should ever endure. So she has shut herself away into the "routine" of her life. Never venturing outside the box to experience anything new or risky. That is until she stumbles upon Rooke in a dark hallway.
Rooke is younger than Sasha, but years wiser in the way of the world. He follows his own set of rules, and learned early on that no risk taken, nothing earned. He is instantly intrigued with Sasha, and after their chance meeting, he sees her as a challenge.
The push and pull pursuit is amazing, and Rooke throws Sasha's life upside down when his life catches up to him in a collision of epic proportions. But by then, Sasha can't let go of him. Her life finally has some "spark" to it and she's finally ready to grab on with both hands. Their passion together is so HOT it will send you into overdrive. (Hopefully you have an outlet handy to solve that one). I have to admit that I wasn't connecting with this story at first, but once the true path of the book opened up, I held on with both hands and enjoyed this awesome ride!!
