Book Review: Want It

wantitWant It is the story of Zander and Erin.  The two dated in high school but broke up after Erin seemed to ruin Zander’s life by calling the cops after a car accident that led to his arrest and losing his chance to go to West Point.  After they had a bad breakup, Zander enlisted in the Army and is now an Army Ranger.  Erin is being threatened and needs his help in order to save her mother and her boyfriend who are in Mexico.  When she received an email from Zander’s Mom telling her that Zander’s father has passed away, she ends up going to the funeral to reconnect with Zander.

Zander agrees to help her out and gives her information on what to do. They end up hooking up.  Then Zander tells Erin that she is not going to Mexico without him “pretending” to be her boyfriend to help her out to make sure that they get her Mom and her boyfriend back in one piece.

This was a fun read because it had a bit of a different side story than most of the other romance novels I have read. Once I got over Zander’s name being Zander (short for Alexander) of course.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

About WANT IT:

In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha

male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.

For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job

at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her

deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches

of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has

no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her

former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she

made a call that terminated his highest aspirations … and their relationship. He’s never

forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he

sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the

electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may

be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

Excerpt:

Excerpt 5: Come Here You

A note to readers from author Jennifer Chance:

Zander and Erin go through a lot in this book that tests their fragile new

relationship—the trip to Mexico, being faced with all of their past baggage (both the

baggage they know about and the baggage they don’t), but they still are two people who

were (and, of course, still are) very much in love. The little moments where they get to

explore that love really made me happy. Even if it was only a stolen second or two, I

loved when they forgot everything else around them and just breathed into the moment a

little bit, allowing themselves to just be two young people who have found their way back

to each other, willing to enjoy this time for all it’s worth.

Zander kissed Erin’s mouth so softly, so gently, that her entire world seemed to balance

on its edge, precariously wobbling, just begging to fall.

“Zander, I—”

“Shhh,” he murmured. “I’m a trained professional.”

She couldn’t help it. The tiniest giggle escaped from her, and she leaned in to him

just a fraction of an inch. She’d override all her own better instincts for one hot second,

she decided. She could allow herself that, surely. She sighed and tilted her head back,

letting Zander deepen the kiss if he wanted, content for the moment to just be in the circle

of his arms.

Zander didn’t need any further invitation.

Without moving his hands from hers, he pressed himself against her, branding her

mouth, and it was as if all the questions between them evaporated, leaving nothing but

heat and adrenaline and an endless, aching need. A need that suddenly seemed all

encompassing. Zander had been gone for so long, saving everyone but her, and now, for

just this moment, in the cocoon of the hotel room where everything was still possible and

nothing had yet gone wrong, she just wanted to—

“You know, you’re thinking an awful lot for someone about to get laid,” Zander

murmured.

And just like that, it was like they were teenagers again. Erin’s laughter slipped

out, loud and unrestrained, and Zander picked her up so easily that it startled her. And

then they were in the bed, both of them fighting for the top position, but Zander winning

easily—even more easily than he had before. His body loomed large as he stretched out

on top of her, staring for one second into her eyes. That’s all she got, that one second,

because then he shifted his gaze away and his mouth was at her temple, his body curving

into hers as her legs parted naturally and she hooked her heels behind his legs. Erin still

was fully dressed, but she was fast losing her grip on reality as Zander trailed a row of

kisses across her cheek and along the delicate ridge of her ear.

“You’re still so goddamned beautiful, you know that, Erin?”
