This is a great story about the beginning of the Wild Mustang Security firm. John and Mandy are great together. Now, I want to know more!The Reluctant Retiree
He loves the chase…
John Hampton is a US Marshal on the way home from an extended fugitive retrieval assignment. When he stops in at his favorite steakhouse he finds that what he wants most … isn’t on the menu.
Mandy Adams wasn’t looking for love, least of all at work. She’s not only surprised at John’s attention but also her quickly developing feelings. John is on the fast-track to claiming Mandy as his own, but Mandy balks at the bossy marshal and flees when her feelings for him threaten to overwhelm her.
Apparently, she isn’t aware that a marshal’s tenacity in running down a target isn’t limited only to fugitives, but to naughty females as well. He soon has both sets of her cheeks blushing from his attention.
But when the chase is over, will Mandy still be able to resist his brand of courtship?
Redrabbitt VINE VOICE 5.0 out of 5 stars HE LED, AND SHE FOLLOWED Reviewed in the United States on December 6, 2020 Verified Purchase The story of US Marshall John Hampton and Mandy Adams is an insta-love novella. From the moment John laid eyes on Mandy, he is ready to claim her as his. They will meet at The Tavern, where Mandy is shooting pool for high stakes against a know-it-all lawyer. When she wins, he comes at her, but that is a mistake, especially with John witnessing it. The story is about these two and their quick relationship. John knows what he wants and goes after it—convincing Mandy won’t be an easy thing for her to accept. After a lifetime of disappointments, she is anti-love and would instead love them and leave them rather than get into a relationship. But this time, she has met her match—and while John is sex on a stick, he is also a dominant who believes in discipline. “No, I think you’ve been very clear about what you expect. As you said—you lead, I follow. The unspoken part was if I don’t, I can expect to get spanked.” The story has several spankings and hot sex scenes. It involves a dominant man and a strong-willed, determined woman, who finally capitulates when she realizes that his word is the truth and not just thrown out there. But the journey is full of angst, determination, and acceptance. “I think you may have met your match and found your girl.” –Mac “I’m not sure whether to be intrigued, excited, or concerned.” –Mandy “I think a combination of all three is probably fairly appropriate.”—John “She realized she had fallen for a guy who would make the rules and expect her to follow them.” While each of the Wild Mustang Security Firm stories works well together, they also read well as a stand-alone. They will have people from other stories, but that is because of their intertwined connections. Mandy works for Willa Reynolds, and John works with US Marshall Ethan “Mac” McDaniel.
Reading Susan 4.0 out of 5 stars Sassy + Alpha = Many Spankings Reviewed in the United States on November 26, 2020 Verified Purchase This story is a prequel to Delta James' Wild Mustangs Security Firm Series. John Hampton is still employed as a U S Marshall and is on his way home from apprehending fugitives. Stopping for dinner he sees Mandy Adams spread over a table playing pool. He is instantly infatuated with her and let's his lust take over. He is driven in his pursuit of her and Mandy is overwhelmed by his dominance. The sex is off the charts but his rules and over abundance of spankings tend to be overbearing. I'm surprised Mandy was not permanently damaged by the end of their courtship. It is a quick read and was gifted to the reader. It is not my favorite book by this author. I enjoy Ms. James books when there is more storyline and the characters are more evolved.
