The highly anticipated epic conclusion to the USA Today bestselling THAT MAN series.
You are invited to the wedding of the century.
Attire: Be prepared to laugh, cry, and swoon.
Sexy as sin Blake Burns and his tiger, Jennifer McCoy, are finally going to tie the knot.
While a delusional, jealous ex and a looming dark secret from Blake's past still threatens their relationship, an unexpected life-or-death event may send their “I do’s” into Neverland.
Battling against the odds, Blake and Jennifer struggle to find their happily ever after. Only a miracle— and that man— can make it happen.
Once inside the apartment, I drew a hot bath. The rope fantasy I’d had earlier in the day had gone down the drain. It just didn’t make sense now. Right now, I just needed to hold my tiger. Let her know she was mine. And make up for punishing her. And rid myself of guilt. I felt bad about my angry fuck, yet she’d seemed turned on, not offended.
After peeling off her clothes which I intended to burn since Dickwick had touched them, I helped her into the tub. My tub was luxurious. Big enough to let six foot three me stretch out, and it had a Jacuzzi. Truthfully, due to our hectic work schedules, Jen and I hadn’t enjoyed it much. Mostly, we took showers together.
I watched as she sunk into the breast deep water. Her sigh was like a symphony to my ears. Turning on the Jacuzzi, I shrugged off my clothes and joined her, settling behind her. She was in my arms, her body and head resting against my chest and shoulders. The water gurgled around us, the bubbling jets caressing and massaging. We were in a zone.
I grabbed a large sponge, squirted some liquid soap on it, and then began to wash her everywhere. Dickwick needed to be erased.
“I’m sorry about tonight,” I breathed against her delicate neck as I washed the back of it and her shoulders. “Did I hurt you?”
She arched back in to me, splaying her hands on my thighs under the water.
“No, Blake. You can never hurt me.”
I pondered her soft words. They were true. I wasn’t capable of hurting her. My burning desire to protect her and fear of losing her ruled me. I’d never thought about the consequences of my actions with any woman. She made me feel things—emotions—I’d never experienced. And sometimes go to extremes. Kill for her I had to. I wanted to be her superhero forever.
Silently, I continued to sponge her. She hummed into the percussion of the bubbles. As I soaped her tender tits, her chest rose and fell against me. My cock rose beneath her. Her half-wet ponytail tickled me. Impulsively, I pulled it loose from its elastic band and it freefell, cascading over her shoulders like a velvet cape. The silkiness grazed my chest.
Keeping one hand cupped on her pert rosebud-tipped tit, I reached for the tube of shampoo. The only one she used. Gloria’s Secret Very Cherry Vanilla. I squeezed a few dollops onto her hair and, with both hands, began massaging it into her scalp until there was a lather. The erotic squishy sound and intoxicating scent of the shampoo aroused me, my cock and heart swelling with love and lust, one physically, the other emotionally. I had to have her. Not fuck her. But make love to her. She was thinking the same thing.
“Oh, Blake,” she said dreamily. “Take me. Make love to me.”
Gently, I lifted her hips onto my erection. She lowered herself onto my thick, aching length, taking me all the way. God, she felt good. So fucking good. I squeezed my eyes shut and let her know with a moan. On the next heated breath, I was gliding in and out of her, my mouth showering her with kisses everywhere it could, my hands working her slick clit, the water bubbling with love. We came passionately together.
Oh baby, stay with me. You’re all I need.

A perfect way to end a series. Wow, did this book take me through a roller coaster of emotions. Be prepared to cry, throw things and swoon over Blake once again. I loved the added letter at the end from Blake. It was a great touch of finality for me. I’ve loved that cocky man from the start, but he captured my heart completely at the end.
I can’t begin to tell you how sad I am to see this series end. I think it’s Nelle’s best to date. I’ve read all of her books, but this series showed her growth and her humor. I love a book that can take me from laughter to tears in the same page. I’m not going to say much about the plot because it’s so jam packed with twists and turns. Just when I thought I had figured it out, she took that turn and headed in another direction. Great job, Nelle at not giving the expected.
Great Finale and overall I love Jen and Blake. I’m going to miss Grandma too. Love this book and recommend this series to anyone who loves a cocky man and lots of laughter.
