The book begins with our h working hard as a cleaner at a cheap motel, struggling to make ends meet while fighting off the pervy boss. She soon meets the new hotel guest, our H, who immediately propositions her.
A set of circumstances leads to her being fired, and him offering her escape in lieu of her body. Initially expecting her to be worldly, he is soon shocked and intrigued by her innocence, yet frustrated by her stubbornness. The h on the other hand finds the H's true identity, yet cannot resist his manly charm.. Soon we have loads of drama, pursuit, natural disasters, cute doggos, some running away and HEA.
I have to say the H was kinda weird. He was possessive, yet a eccentric artist ready to paint the h nude?! He was worried about her weight, yet was OK when she had food related tantrums?! Wanted to protect her but didnt mind all the pushing away?! Make up your mind dude. The h was stubborn and stupid.
Average at its best. Safe 2. View 2 comments. Jan 23, Aou rated it liked it Shelves: as-booge-said-hero-needs-skilleting , virgin-h. She was 19 so her being silly is quite normal but he was 34, H should be more mature and self confident! On the other hand, he is a man, what can I expect?

And that may or may not be a real title. I have no idea. Now on to the book. The H was a traditional, overbearing, alpha male that expected Firstly, I love the title of this book.
The H was a traditional, overbearing, alpha male that expected the woman in his life to know his ever thought and act like he expects a woman to act. The h was a nineteen year old whose mom recently died and her stepfather basically kicked her out shortly after. He bought her a ticket to go visit her birth father in Canada.
A one way ticket. She gets to her dad and learns that he has another family and wants nothing to do with her. So she gets a job a a cheap motel. She meets the H when he stays at the hotel and circumstances cause her to lose her job so he offers her and indecent proposal.
Desperate to earn money to return to England, she accepts and moves in with him for two weeks. This was a pretty standard story. What adult male makes a proposal like his to a teenager?!
Then he just runs hot and cold constantly. The h was young and stupid. How the heck do you agree to a proposal like that? Dude could be a murderer! But that was a looong time ago so my memories may not be accurate anymore. Not a winner by any means, but a decent read. View 1 comment. Jun 04, Tia rated it it was ok. The heroine met the hero when she was cleaning his room in a hotel.
After fighting off sexual advances from her boss, the hero wanted her to come to his home to be his mistress. Being alone in a big city and far from her childhood home in England, she agreed. Although the hero treated her appallingly at times he was secretly falling in love for her. Not knowing she was a virgin, he had plans to take her to bed. When he found out, he decided to bring her back to England and leave her alone.
Excep The heroine met the hero when she was cleaning his room in a hotel. Except one night, a storm got the best of them. After the one night stand, the heroine felt offended because the hero had said sorry for taking her virginity.
When the hero and heroine got off the plane in England, the heroine took off on him to get away from him and get a job. When the hero caught up with her, he confessed his love and they all lived happily ever after. It was a short book and for some reason I found it rather boring. I didn't like how there was no villain except for themselves and I really didn't care or how fast it went along, leaving out some details.
Overall it was an okay story to read but not something I'd particular read again!

Erin and Josh Hawke has an instant connection that soon deepens to insane attraction and powerful love.
I enjoyed their conversations and their chemistry was great. They were both adorable and hot together and the steamy scenes between i throughly enjoyed very much,Josh really are a sexy hero.
The way they were afraid to show their love just pained me but i was "Elusive Lover" are such a beautiful and passionate love-story with two lonely characters that find each other one day in a cheap hotelroom.
I also adore the cover and the romance between Erin and Josh were so wonderfully bittersweet and sensual,loved them desperately together and the ending just made me grin of happiness! It wasn't great or fantastic. It was horrible and boring It became better at the last two chapters.
