RAW NEED – A Cherrie Lynn Review & Excerpt

img_2142

So there aren’t many stories where the hero has to fight for a woman who’s recently lost her husband and is currently pregnant….drama am I right? But Raw Need does it in THE most believable way!

Zane is the rocker that Rowan has always dreamed of, typical for any teenager. But through a series of very strange (and unfortunate) events in Rowan’s life she gets the chance of a lifetime to spend an evening in his company. How can she betray the memory of her husband? And how can a man like Zane fall for her, especially in her condition.

Zane knows that he’ll have to tread thin ground with Rowan if he ever plans to win her heart. She’s just lost her husband and is still reeling from the loss. But there is a small joy in her life when she finds out that she’s pregnant with her late-husband’s child: a last piece of him to remember. Zane makes the tough choice to be a friend to Rowan when he family begins to pressure her through their own grief. Even though he struggles with the deep feelings he has for her.

If Raw Deal was an emotionally charged story of how to cope with confusing emotions, then Raw Need is a gut-wrenching story of how two virtual strangers that overcome adversity and the norm to finally find out if they can find love. I cried, i begged, I wanted these two to find their happy so hard!!! Can’t wait for the final tale of the Larson brothers!

Excerpt:

Zane took her hand and helped her from the car after opening her door. He’d done that all night, and while she hadn’t needed it, she found she loved it. He didn’t let her go even as they strolled up the walkway to her front door, pausing on her front porch. She missed the warmth of his hand immediately when she had to dig her keys from her purse.

Except for hugs from family and friends, it had been a while since anyone touched her. Until tonight.

It had been much longer since anyone had awoken the kind of feelings she was experiencing right now, the zinging along her nerve endings, the weakness in the fronts of her thighs that she suspected had nothing to do with emotion and everything to do with him.

It’s okay, she thought, desperate to keep her eyes down on her task of digging in her purse though her keys were right there in sight, glinting under her porch light. He’s my fucking celebrity crush, of course I’m going to respond. It doesn’t mean anything.

“I want to kiss you,” he said, and she sucked in a breath and looked up at him in astonishment, keys forgotten. He was so close, so beautiful, something that could have formed from the surrounding shadows to steal her heart away. “But I won’t.” Even as reason coupled with disappointment flooded her, her involuntary reaction was to wet her lips. She could swear he noticed the response; his eyes darkened. “Unless you want me to.”

She did. God help her, she did. But . . . “It can’t mean anything,” she whispered.

“It doesn’t have to.”

She could do that, right? Just a kiss. A onetime, once-in-a-lifetime kiss. Maybe she was wrong and the chemistry wouldn’t be there. She would know it once and for all, no wondering “what if” after he went back home, no staying up nights imagining what he tasted like, knowing she’d had her chance to find out and refused it. “Okay,” she said, but since she figured he could barely hear her trembling voice, she nodded as well.

He stepped in. Rowan nearly jumped when the tips of his fingers tilted her chin up to receive him; he touched her nowhere else. At least not until he leaned forward, nestling his nose next to hers as his lips caught hers gently, sweetly. A shiver worked along her spine, raising the hair at her nape.

So much for no chemistry.

She wanted to open, to invite him deeper, but even as his fingertips slid toward her ear until he cupped her jaw in his palm, he only teased at her lips with his own. A touch, a brush. The sweetness of their shared dessert a ghost on his breath, he didn’t quest for any sort of entry, so careful not to do so that something broke in her weakly thudding heart, flooding her with heat.

Oh, fuck.

“His other hand grasped the doorframe beside her head; his beard tickled her delicate skin. Rowan’s hands ached to crawl up his body, but she clenched them tightly at her sides against the need, her nails biting crescent moons into her palms. This, just this. It was all she had to give right now.

Zane pulled away only slightly, his warm breath soft against her tingling lips. He’d barely touched her, barely even given her that taste of him. She wanted more, longed to drag him to her and take it, but when he stepped back, she had to let him. The tip of his thumb traced the line of her jaw all the way to her chin as he drew his hand away.
