I’m sure by now you are all oh so surprised when I have a new K. Webster book on the blog. I just listen for a hint that she’s going to have a book out and then sign up for everything I can. There’s another one coming up not too long from now, too. Just enjoy the twisted mind that is K. Webster. I know I do.
Pearson is part of a 4 book set written by JD Hollyfield, Dani Rene, K. Webster, and Ker Dukey. Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are all interconnected and the characters all show up in the different books. So far, Pearson is the only one I’ve read. I have JD Hollyfield’s and Dani Rene’s, and I’ll have Ker Dukey’s when it comes out next week, so I’ll be reading them all in order, back-to-back. Oh darn, I’ll have to reread Pearson. Damn.
The very first thing you are going to see when you open this book is K’s warning. It’s got to be one of the greatest and shortest warnings I’ve read, and K has written some great ones. Basically, it says that you aren’t going to like this hero. When the writer says something like that, you should probably oughta listen.
Eric Pearson is a single dad. He’s got 4 pretty good teenage boys. He’s also part owner of Four Fathers Freight, and is doing pretty damn OK. Eric believes in getting what he wants. Or rather, he believes in taking what he wants. He sees it, he wants it, he takes it, and bedamned to anyone in his way. He will run them over, friend, enemy, innocent bystander. Right now, what he wants is the very beautiful young woman who is playing around in his swimming pool. Her name is Rowan.
Rowan is on the very verge of turning 18, has a father who treats her like a little girl, and a boyfriend. And did I mention the fact that her boyfriend, Brock, happens to be one of Eric’s sons? And that all 3 of his other sons are enamored with her? That’s not going to stop Eric though. He’s been waiting for her to turn 18 for the past 2 years, and now that she’s about to, he’s going to get her, no matter who he has to destroy to get there.
Rowan has been very aware of Eric for some time, but she’s happy being Brock’s girlfriend. They’ve gotten close and fooled around some, but never had full on sex. After her 18th birthday, where her father gave her a dollhouse, thank you very much, she sneaks next door to Brock’s and is going to get it on with him right up until his dad busts in the door. He kicks Brock out of his own room and points out to Rowan that she’s 18, Brock is 17 and if she does anything with him, she could go to jail, but he’s more than happy to punish her now. And he does.
OK, this is the time we all know is coming. I love Eric. I hate Eric. It depends on the page. He’s a fucking asshole all the time, so that part doesn’t change. He blows very hot and cold with Rowan at first, and that kind of really pisses me off. I know, what can I say. I’d still fuck him. He’s just not really a nice guy. But K writes him very well. I expect it’s hard to write an asshole as a hero. Not that I really think of him as a hero, but you get my drift.
I don’t think that I really have any spoilers on this one. It’s a pretty short read, so go check it out.
