BLURB: When a casual hookup turns into the potential for love, staid Spencer realizes he wants to build a life with vibrant Emilio.

When twenty-two-year-old Emilio Sanchez sees handsome Spencer Derdinger walking by his construction site, Emilio makes it his goal to seduce the shy professor. Getting Spencer into bed isn’t difficult, but Emilio soon learns that earning the trust of a man deeply hurt will take time and patience. With a prize like brilliant, sweet Spencer on the line, Emilio decides he is strong enough to face the challenge.

Spencer is surprised when he’s approached by the gorgeous construction worker he’s admired from the safety of his office window. Acting spontaneously for the first time in his thirty-eight years, Spencer takes Emilio home. When the casual hookup turns into the potential for love, Spencer realizes that if he wants to build a life with Emilio, he’ll need to be strong enough to slay his personal demons and learn to trust again.



Insta-love ignited by pure lust

 When reading this, I felt that I had just found a buried diamond in the dirt, the more I uncovered, the more it shone.

38 year old Professor Spencer Derdinger lives a quiet, lonely life – something that happened in his past life dictates the man he is today. So what happens when an unexpected tornado hits and his life is suddenly turned up-side-down and transformed?  This particular tornado is not a weather phenomenon, but a construction worker in the name Emilo Sanchez, a wet-dream Adonis!

Though only 22, Emilo knows exactly what he wants and that “want” is Spencer. Nothing is going to stop him, especially his shy Professor!

Cardeno C delivered one of the fastest insta-loves that I have read, but did it in the infinite style that only CC can deliver. This book was seductive seduction at its best.  Emilo is most probably the most adorable, loveable, sexiest character that CC has ever written (and believe me, this Author has written some pretty amazing characters), I adored him, especially his boldness – boy-oh-boy, was he bold!

Spencer was cute and adorable too. His shyness was endearing and I wanted to hug him so many times, but Emilo did it so much better than I ever could.  The way he blossomed under Emilo’s love was a pleasure to read.  I must also mention Emilo’s family, they were all so larger-than-life characters, who knew family loyalty and values, I wish everyone had a family like that..(sigh).

This is the second book in the Family Series, each book is a separate story and therefore stand-alone’s. After reading book 1, now book 2, it is going to be so hard to choose a favourite?  I think you are going to have to accept the fact, that everyone of these books are rereads, time and time again.

Thank you Cardeno C for writing this, it was a beautiful read, I’m so glad that I walked the road and found this sparkling gem.

Five seductive heart-shaped stars from me.
