Review: Not Negotiable By Samantha Cole
Every once in a while a side character will stand out, will linger long after the HEA and the book is closed, put away. You’ll find yourself wondering what happened, what led up to that one point, how will it end. Shelby stood out in Leather & Lace. She was so bubbly, so full of life. In His Angel, when Parker comes to Shelby’s rescue… Oh my. I fell in love with the two of them, especially together! They had such a connection. I couldn’t let go of them, their story. I needed more.
Parker is a stand up guy, fairly quiet. When his brother hits Shelby, he’s crushed. He’s watched her for such a long time, wanting her, loving her. Shelby is the bubbly, happy woman that is friends with everyone. She always has a smile and hug, her joy lighting up the world around her. When she quits coming to the club after the incident with Parker’s brother, Parker gets concerned, then pissed. Things are never as simple as it seems from the outside. Behind every smile, there is hidden heartbreak. Love is easy when it’s superficial, casual. It’s harder when it becomes about life, the fear of death. Love is about the time between, what you make of it. Sometimes you have to take that first step of trust, to see what has been missing and the best of what is to come.
Thank you Samantha Cole, for making me cry, for making me laugh, for reminding all of your readers that life is what you make of it.
