Aiden had known the second he laid his eyes on that spectacular hourglass figure of hers that he wanted her. Of course he had. A man would have to be dead not to want to spend time between those gorgeous thighs, worshiping at those fantastic breasts while he fucked into what he’d bet was the tightest pussy in creation. Yes, his cock had screamed ‘MINE!’ the moment his gaze settled on her fine little body. But the second she’d turned and he’d seen her exquisite face for the first time… yeah, he’d been done. He’d known that woman would hold him – heart, mind, body, and soul.
There’d been no question at all.
He was claiming sweet Carolina for his own.
Claimed is a quick, insta-love novella that takes us back to Paradise, Tennessee. Featuring the town Fire Chief Aiden James and the new librarian Carolina Mayfair, this is a fast paced, heat filled read.
The men of Paradise are alphas to the core, they know what they want when they see it, and Aiden is no exception who places his 'Claim' on Carolina, within minutes of her becoming acquainted with the town's eligible bachelors. Aiden is cocky and a player, and Carolina has been burned in the past, and generally gun shy when it comes to males in general. Misunderstandings abound between this pair, as they endeavor to find a happy ever after. Their banter is fun, flirty and at times quite humorous.
This pair of characters are both realistic in that they are both far from perfect, and although like-able, I found I didn't connect with these characters. Possibly it was the length of the story, I think I would have liked more depth to it. I actually really liked Aiden's character by the end of the book, and found him to be quite quirky with his over the top alpha personality. Carolina, I really struggled to connect with, but overall it's a fun and enjoyable read.
