Wouldn’t mind some more.
Same ol’ story— they meet, roll around in the sheets, and get their happily ever after… or don’t— right? So what makes ours any different?
Simple. This story involves one Presley Alexandra Beckett.
The woman who takes any and every damn thing I thought I knew and flips, twists, distorts, denies and defies it until I lose track of up from down.
Just when I start to think I’ve got her figured out… I uncover the real reason why Presley spends her life hiding behind a wall of sassy, stubborn deflection.
Now I fix it.
Make her mine.
Whether she likes it or not.
I have been wanting to read S.E. Hall for a while so when I had the chance to read Elusive, I jumped at it. This is the first book in her Princess Presley Duet and does end with readers wanting the next book now! Though this story is a standalone duet, I believe they are interconnected characters from previous books. I am excited to go back and read more of this author’s work.
I absolutely loved Sutton. He was all kinds of sexiness, but also sweet, caring and so very patient. I loved his character so much. Presley, at least to me, was not always as likable, but I have a feeling we will learn more about her in the second book. She was strong, determined and had her heart hidden behind a stone wall.
Sutton and Presley have so much chemistry, but Presley continuously pushes him away. But she cannot deny the connection they have or Sutton’s determination to win her over. Presley is not a relationship kind of woman, but Sutton is getting under her defenses. Can they find a way to be together?
Elusive had some laugh out loud moments, was sweet and had great banter between Sutton and Presley with all their push and pull. It does end in a bit of a cliffhanger and I cannot wait to read what happens next.
He reaches past Bellamy to open the glove box, and sure enough, pulls out three bottles of pepper spray. I thought he was kidding; he’s never gone to these extremes before, when we’ve went… anywhere. “Excuse me, Sergeant Shithead?” I tap his shoulder. “What’s with the extra precautionary measures tonight?”
“Like I said earlier, Private PainInMyAss, there’s three of you, one of me, and hundreds of them. Also as mentioned before, this is Bellamy and Brynn’s first frat party, so unlike any other type of party… that’s a factor I considered while prepping.”
“Speaking of things mentioned earlier, I believe you’re making the point I tried to for me. You know, that this is a really bad idea. The fact you feel it necessary to equip us with a multi-step, tactical plan, and weaponry, like we’re being deployed to Desert Storm, might be a sign that I’m right?” Surely, they’ll all see reason and finally agree with me. I’m always up for a party, good time… if it’s safe. This is not. I knew it before we got here, and now that we are on scene, my gut’s screaming in warning. I didn’t correct JT before, but this is my first frat party too… for reasons I’ll never list.
“Desert Storm ended well over two decades ago,” Brynny says. “Over before anyone in this car was even born.”
JT and Bellamy laugh, but I don’t think she’s funny — and scowl at her accordingly. “Brynny, as fascinated as I usually am by your amazing brain-bank of random factoids, I’m feeling sort of off tonight, so could ya maybe not? You know the point I was trying to make, so feel free to miss me with the pointless history lesson.”
“Sorry.” She pats my shoulder. “J, you’ve got Presley all wigged out. Now’d be a great time to tell her about the surprise.”
