Intimate Relations


Small-town barista Mandy Monroe will never forget the first time she saw the man of her dreams.

 Every morning, this impossibly gorgeous hunk would ride his bike past her coffee shop, fueling her wildest romantic fantasies. But when she learns that her crush is none other than vineyard owner Marc Reed, one of America’s hottest young entrepreneurs, Mandy knows her fantasy will never become a reality. That is, until Marc’s home burns down and he moves in with her…

As a roommate, Marc is as warm, friendly, and down-to-earth as he is rich, famous, and heartstoppingly handsome. But beneath his laidback exterior beats the heart of a red-blooded man with an uncontrollable urge to take Mandy in his arms and make mad, passionate love to her. Mandy is everything he’s ever wanted; she’s sweet, smart, funny, and irresistibly sexy. But how he can tell her the truth about his past? How can he explain the nightmares that haunt him every night? And how can he tell Mandy he loves her…without putting her heart, and her life, in danger?

Awakened by Kate Douglas is the conclusion of the Intimate Relations series. I enjoyed this story more than the others in the series.   Mandy and Marcus's love story is sweet and heartwarming.  It did seem that the relationship took off at a rather quick pace, but overall this story was a good read.  I am happy to see that Douglas delivered Marc in a much better light than previous main characters in series. He has so many great qualities and wins the girl in the end!  I look forward to more from Kate Douglas.
