He never thought his next wildfire would be wearing a red dress.
“Make me your goddess and I’ll take you to heaven.” This sultry promise sparks a scorching, unforgettable one-night stand. The next morning Bram Winters awakes with a hickey and a head full of wicked memories—alone. His nameless goddess is gone without a trace, along with his shirt. And his heart.
Five months later, he stumbles across his mystery lady in a Laundromat, but she still won’t give up her name. Worse, she begs him to leave, no questions asked. Once he catches the spark of terror in her eyes, though, his firefighter training takes over—and he digs in for the duration.
Lady never wanted Bram to see her life’s ugly underside, but it’s too late—his socks are already in the washer. He was supposed to be her declaration of independence from her unstable ex, a bittersweet memory to carry into her new life.
Except the ex continues to stalks her. And Bram’s reappearance sends her emotions and desires tumbling over the edge. As the minutes wear on, sexual tension rises faster than the steam from a hot water wash.And Lady’s ex watches from the shadows, growing more furious by the minute…
Two strangers meet one hot summer evening and there is an instant attraction. Lipstick On His Collar by Inez Kelley is all about having an instant attraction and connection with someone, and giving into it. It's also about mystery and using it to make everything hotter. At first names are not shared, but Bram gives in and tells the female character his name. She will not tell him hers, so he calls her Lady. They don't know anything about each other and choose not to share anything.
One thing that I really loved about this book is you could feel the heat being shared between Bram and Lady. The smexin scenes were scorching as well! Hot and steamy, my fave!
Lipstick On His Collar is richly descriptive and Inez Kelley makes you feel as if you are right there with the characters. Whether it's a summer rain storm, or a steamy laundromat, you become immersed into the story as if you are there experiencing it firsthand yourself.
