Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Pierce’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out – move up at the nightclub she works at and marry the manager, David. He’s perfect for her because, although he’s attractive, he doesn't get her all turned inside out and upside down like some other men have. It’s a safe plan, one that assures she’ll remain in control of her obsessive love disorder.
But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous – the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of his plans to seduce her. Avoiding him becomes impossible after he offers a business proposition Alayna can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull.
Soon Alayna’s charmed by Hudson in every way possible and the control over her old behaviors slip. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

ReviewThis one is hot with a side of romance! Two damaged souls coming together to heal each other and work though their crazy together. That's usually a formula for a great read, and this was no exception.
Alayna has a history with men, and not that kind of history. She gets attached, really attached. So attached that she has become a stalker, more than once. Lots of therapy has helped her break that cycle, but she also doesn't allow herself to feel anything for men anymore either. So when Hudson shows up in her life and she feels instantly drawn to him she wants to run and fast. Hudson, however, has other ideas. His eye is set on Alayna and he wants her, but without a romantic relationship. The kicker here? He also wants to pay her to pretend to be his girlfriend so he can convince his bitch of a mother that he is capable of loving someone so she doesn't force him to get married, even though he doesn't believe he is capable of love either. Hudson makes it very clear to Alyana when they are "on duty" or "off duty" and constantly reminds her of the distinction.
Want to know if Alayna slips? If Hudson is really incapable of love? Well, get to reading! The journey this book takes you on is wonderful, I cringed, I smiled, I even shed a few tears. This is the first book in a trilogy but leaves you feeling satisfied at his conclusion. Book two, Found In You is due out October 1, 2013 and I know I plan on finding out more about Hudson and Alayna!

About the Author
Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.
