Pain can leave even the strongest of people weak and hollow. But when fate brings two weak souls together, will the love they find mend the fragments that are barely holding them together, or will the weight of their past finally cause them to crumble?
Max DeLucca has spent seven years trying to forget the betrayal of his past. He lives his life from day to day never looking forward and never looking back. The walls around his heart keep anyone from getting too close and prevent him from feeling too much…until he meets her.
Her entire life, Janie Silver searched for the kind of love that wouldn’t leave her broken and more importantly, wouldn't leave her behind. She longs for a love that can heal the wounds of her past and give her the future she knows she deserves. She thought she was looking for something that just didn’t exist…until she meets him.
Danny’s on Main is where their story begins. A neighborhood bar where strangers become friends, friends become family and some … become lovers
… it all started on Thursday Nights
4 out of 5 Stars.
Hmm where to begin? At first I was a little scared, you know some books with a lot of different stories and POV's can get discombobulated? Thursday Nights Luckily was the exception! I loved seeing into not only Janie and Max's mind but also Layla's too! There are a whole lotta broken people at Danny's, and boy do I love me some broken people! I was soo relieved when this books main focus was Janie and Max and not EVERYONE all in one book sometimes you lose something when that happens you know? So anyways...
I really enjoyed Thursday Nights I almost felt like I was apart of their "family". Everyone is hiding something and I loved trying to figure it all out, though I'm sad to say I don't think I really figured anything out, except Janie and Max and I'm ok with that because I know Storm Front is coming soonish? I hope? and that is will unravel the mystery of Ashley and Ryan for me ... or at least thats my prayer becasue as much as Thursday Nights is about Janie & Max I was captivated by their friends Ashley and Ryan.
Anywhoo.. I keep getting off the subject at hand!
Max was BURNED and I mean BURNED bad by his first wife Chloe.
I can completely understand why dude has trust issues and has closed him self off. Now we have sweet little Janie who grew up with a despicable mother and all she has ever wanted was someone who loved her above all else. Well after months of lusting after each other Max and Janie have a wild night of "Sex with Friends" and man oh man was it steamy!!!
But it quickly turns into trouble. Max wakes up happy thinking "maybe just maybe" until he hears something that sets him into full blown panic mode and everything changes. But when Janie needs someone who shows up? But I swear it only made it worse!
There were so many moments when I was all...and I was totally waiting for the
Max knew Janie well enough to know his words hurt her. She looked physically pained every time he shut her out. While he wasn’t lying when he said the problem wasn’t her, it left a fresh scar on his heart every time he saw the ache he inflicted flash through her eyes. The need to see her face was overwhelming. He had to look in her aqua eyes and make her understand that he wasn’t worth her time or her heart.
The bathroom door was all that stood between them. He lifted his hand to the doorknob, wanting so badly to open it and go to her.
He could envision her beautiful, naked body through the steam coming from the shower, the water trickling down her soft skin. Stripping himself down and sliding into the shower behind her. His large hands moving around her narrow waist, grazing over her ribcage and trailing up until he caressed her breasts. His thumb and forefinger rolling her nipples as he leans into her neck and drags his tongue up the long column until he reaches her jaw. Slowly turning her around, the water pounding at her back, he bends forward and begins a slow assault using his lips, his tongue, and his teeth. Her nipples pebble between his fingers, and a slow husky moan bubbles up from her throat, giving voice to her approval of his touch. She whimpers when he moves one hand from her breast and slowly lets it travel down her belly over her pubic bone. She runs her own hand up along his jaw and into his wet blond hair, pulling his head closer to her neck just as he strokes the hard nub between her thighs. She moans when he uses the pad of his finger to fondle her clit, and he can feel her body start to tremble and tighten. He’s not ready to let her come because that would mean he’d be letting her go, so he sinks first one finger, and then two, into her moist heat and begins a slow rhythm in and out of her cunt. “Oh, Max. Oh my God.” Her body is shaking, and her pussy is creaming on his fingers as he’s licking her neck, her jaw, and finally her lips. As he continues to fuck her with his fingers, he uses his thumb to rub her clit, finally bringing her over the edge. He can feel the walls of her sex milking his fingers as he whispers his apology and his love into her ear.
