My Thoughts: It was just Meh. Something I wasn’t expecting considering I loved the way it started out. Actually, I was still loving this book at about 59% and then my friends it took a right turn down Predictability Road.
Nolan(H) is ex-Seal and now works in the private sector, he meets Lacey(h) at a bar one night and is smitten with her. They exchange info and go on a date. He has a “fetish” that he tries to explain to Lacey and hopes she can accept it because it’s something he doesn’t wish to change (this I couldn’t get on board with because I WISH a man would tell me what he told her and I said OK, someone commit me for stupidity now). BUT…Lacey needed him so she put up with it. I guess she wasn’t expecting to fall for him or him for her. That was what made this good for me, it wasn’t instant love and the push and pull was fun to read. Trying to discover Lacey’s secret was fun too. I had one part of it pegged but the other thing I couldn’t quite put my finger on, however; when it was revealed I was devastated. Devastated because I was expecting so much more. The build up was amazing the ending was a total let down.
This book was good up to the end so for that I will give it 3 stars.

Book Blurb: One man. Two women. This is going to get messy.
Love is a trap, a trick only other people fall for. Former Navy SEAL Nolan has no such illusions. The only things real in his life are his beloved bulldog and the two women who regularly share his bed. One is light―soft, innocent, and tender touches. The other is dark―and gives him all of the wicked things he craves behind closed doors. It’s not cheating when each is aware of the other. But when he begins to feel much more than he ever bargained for, the order of his carefully crafted world is shaken, and he stands to lose everything.
Nolan thinks we met by chance. We didn’t. I sought him out, seduced him, and in return got the sanctuary I needed to survive. But now, impossibly, I’ve fallen in love with him. I don’t care that he has another lover, because when he finds out who I am, it’s going to ruin any chance I ever had with him anyway. She’s the least of my worries.
BAIT & SWITCH is the first book in a new contemporary romance series called Alphas Undone, which will each feature a new couple.
