Excellent! All the denial was a bit annoying, but their fiery passion and boisterousness worked well in this novel. The kid was mischievous, the families close knit. I really like that a lot! ( )

Holy cow! Mike is definitely the hottest McCauley brother. I've been waiting on his story since I started this series and I wasn't disappointed. He was always portrayed as this emotionally damaged guy who could only love his family. Then, Del came busting into his life and it all changed. She turned him inside out and upside down which he needed. I loved Colin in this book and I'm glad we got to see a little of his POV. It was sweet. I'd love to see more in this series or a spin-off, cause I would love to read about J.T.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. ( )

"It makes you think, you know? Getting that close to the edge. Makes you realize what's important. I think WE'RE important. I love you, Mike." - Delilah Webster

I am never, ever, judging a fictional guy from the way he acts around his brothers. Or, at the very least, I'm not judging Mike McCauley from his quiet and gruff appearance again - we all know it'll wear off in a few days, but let me pretend for a little while, ok?

So, the last of the books for the McCauley brothers was focused on Mike, the widower and father of the most adorable - or, well, cunning - kid in the whole wide world. Colin's dad may seem like the quietest of the brothers, but Delilah Webster, the tattooed, tough mechanic knows better than that. She gets on his nerves as much as he gets on hers. Yet they can't help but also feel attracted to each other. When his mother's meddling finally pushes him over the edge, Mike decides he will finally take Del any way he's been dreaming of since the first time he saw her. Now if only he can do it without getting emotionally attached to the woman that is nothing like his type...

Mike was my favorite of the brothers back when I started this series. I mean, serious, gruff man, strong, fatherly, what was not to like? Even when he was dealing with his feelings for Del - ok, it was more like denial, but anyway - he was like a big, adorable brute. The thing is, I expected more from him in this book...

Now, don't get me wrong, I loved Mike in his story, too, but there were times I just wanted to punch him. It was like he was in a constant state of belief that Del would never be hurt - like her tattoos and piercings and attitude made her less of a woman or something. The good news in all this was, whenever the male in him decided to come out and play - either to possess or to claim - he was pretty convincing - and hot, don't forget the hot part. You just can't take a McCauley and not need an extra pair of sheets, panties, the works...

As for Del... Didn't I tell you I was gonna fall in love with the woman? I'm pretty sure I said that when I first met her. Well, not just love. I don't think the word describes the perfection that was this woman completely. To make myself clear, I kept saying - out loud - that I would be fine marrying her if Mike was so against the notion of even bonding. Seriously, Del is enough to make me think of changing sides. Not because of her appearance and attitude, but because she was so wonderful, and tried her hardest to be strong in order to survive, without looking pretentious and whiny.

I honestly enjoyed this great series to the very end. And I do recall saying that I thought Ms. Harte could be the new IT in the contemporary erotic romance department. Well, having read all of the McCauley books, I'm now 100% certain I was right!

Thank you for the great ride, Marie Harte!

"I won't lie and say I expected this, because I didn't. It's been a long time since I've said this to a special woman. And I didn't think she existed out there for me anymore. But she does. You do. I love you." - Michael McCauley

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Every time Delilah Webster runs into Mike McCauley, he practically bites her head off. The rough-and-tumble contractor clearly has baggage. Del has her own emotional scars and knows she's better off keeping her distance, but Mike is temptation in jeans and a T-shirt and she's always been good with her hands.… (more)
