Twenty-one-year-old Elaina Ruiz has only just begun college when she meets Raul Vega for the first time. Recognizing his ruthless intensity for what it is, she doesn’t correct him when he assumes she is an eighteen-year-old freshman.
Raul Vega has never met a woman he couldn’t do without. Until he meets Elaina Ruiz and knows she has to belong to him--even if it means waiting for her to grow up.

Elaina Ruiz has just lost her mother and is looking for herself, having cared for her for a long time.  She decides to spend her holiday vacation from college visiting her ant.  She meets the very intense Raul Vega and is instantly deeply attracted to the handsome cowboy.  The problem is that he is VERY intense and she doesn't know if she is ready for that relationship.

Raul, on the other hand, will stop at nothing to get the girl, even if it means waiting for her.  He has felt his bachelor days end on the spot at the first sight of the young beauty.  He will pursue her and bind her to him by any means necessary.

On the plus side, you will find in this book everything that makes Lynda Chance's stories enchanting: A very possessive hero, an alpha-male sure of himself and his place in life.  A young heroine who will give her man a run for his money.  A believable storyline you can (almost) relate to.  Great dialogue.  Intensity.
On the down side, I will have loved to see this book being a little longer (it's a short story).  It has the downfall of any short story in my opinion; a rushed ending.  Not a bad one, mind you, just one that could have benefited a longer ending.
The cover does also suggest a more erotic twist.  Unfortunately, the action doesn't really support the intensity of the great dialogue and what it builds up to be.

I will however write reviews on other books written by Lynda Chance since her work just keeps getting better and better.  All in all, I couldn't but the book down.

Type: Contemporary Romance
Keyword: Alpha Male, possessive Hero
Intimacy: Borderline Young Adult, the dialogue makes it adult in a big way

I gave it 4 stars since it's a very well written short story that will leave you searching for more Lynda Chance's work
