Sam Crescent provides the best guilty pleasure with this swift, sexy and sweet read. Scarlett is one of the most complex and engaging heroines I have come across. She has an intense past and an intriguing present and I couldn’t help but wish she’d get a dream worthy future. Ryker is absolutely perfect for her. As this is a quick story we don’t get to see so deeply into his history but we do get to see his personality very clearly by the actions he takes. I must say I was very curious about him, wanting to know more, but everything I did see I loved. I enjoyed his straightforward attitude and his feelings for Scarlett and her furry companion. The relationship between these two was fascinating and so captivating and the brevity gave it an exciting almost adventuresome twist.
This short story had a little of everything. "Convict" started with heart raising hazard. Between the pages you get witty banter and a smouldering chemistry that eventually singed my eReader. There were moments of absolute seriousness and even sadness, but even more moments of hope and happiness.
The Story: Ryker has escaped from prison and needs to find a way to prove his innocence. The thing is, he never planned on finding a woman like Scarlett and the feelings they discover for one another. Can he clear his name and have a future?
Ryker’s escaped prison to prove his innocence, but before he can do that, he needs a safe place to hide. When a curvy woman makes her way toward her car in a secluded section of a parking lot, he sees the perfect opportunity. Holding her at gunpoint, he forces this woman to take her to his home.
This isn’t the first time Scarlett has been held at gunpoint, and she’s not actually afraid of Ryker. There’s something in his eyes that makes her realize he’s not going to hurt her, which is crazy—and that is what scares her.
He’s the first man she’s ever wanted, but she has to resist him. There’s no place for love in Scarlett’s life.
Ryker wants Scarlett more than anything else in the world, and he’s going to have her. Learning about the abuse she suffered in the past doesn’t make him see her any differently. He just knows that she deserves a man without a black cloud hanging over his head.
He’s going to clear his name, but what will happen after? Will he go back and claim Scarlett as his, or will he let her go?
