Stand-alone Crossroads romance, complete with HEA--and plenty of heat and heart along the way!
Billy "The Big Bad Wolf" Marshall thought he had everything he needed. He'd left the boxing ring with his body intact and he was content with his new job at Elite Security. But the chiseled-to-perfection heartthrob didn't have who he wanted...
Maxine "Maxi" Rizzo had always prided herself on being independent and in complete control of her life...well, at least she thought she was. The gorgeous, blue-eyed publicist clearly wasn't in control of her life when the stalking had started a few weeks ago...
With her life in serious danger, Maxi would have to let someone else take care of her for once; but she never knew that he would be her safety. Can she let go and finally give in to her heart's desire? Can Billy convince her that all he wants...is her?
All He Wants is sensual, sweet, and ardent story. It has danger, jitters, and tension, from the absolute panic of life and death moment to the most delightful and marvelously loving and gentle scene.
Maxi and Billy have one of those rare and divine connections, their eyes meet and the rest of the world sees to exist, nonetheless the bond between them is certain and honest. They are so true and perfect for each other, the air between the is crackling with sensual energy that wants to consume them. I adored them and their transparency, honor, and loyalty, the fire they had for each other, the protectiveness they professed, how they shared the burdens and took care of each other when needed.
The tension in the tale doesn't only come from the deep current running between Billy and Maxi. There's the danger from the odd and fearful attacks towards Maxi, her stressful job, her dad's and his mom's problems causing heartache, issues from the past that Maxi has to face, and even mafia.

Billy and Maxi stole my heart. The adoration, devotion, passion, dedication, and affection between them made me sigh and swoon and smile, restore my faith in soul-mates and belief of dreams come true
