Afraid to Love by MJ Nightingale Blog Tour

Learning to trust again is the hardest thing to do.

Ana Perrot is crazy. Crazy about sex, and pleasing her lovers. She is passionate and as fiery as her red hair. She eats men like air. She is also willing to submit to any man anywhere. But outside of the bedroom, Ana is an independent woman who lives her own life by her own rules. And, her biggest rule . . . she won’t do long term relationships. She refuses to fall in love . . . again.

Teddy O’Rourke is an easy going, laid back Tampa bartender at one of the most popular clubs in town. All about family and enjoying life including all the women that throw themselves at his feet, he has no problems finding willing partners. His football player body, his personality, his warm hazel eyes all ooze sex appeal. He is the perfect package in every way for a woman like Ana, well for any woman really. An ex-cop, his instincts tell him Ana is one hell of a woman, but she is wounded and scarred by the past. What are her secrets? What will make her trust him? Why is she so afraid to love?

A one night stand, that is full of surprises for Teddy, opens his eyes to new possibilities. A single man enjoying his freedom meets his match in the bedroom, and elsewhere. He sees a future with Ana, a counselor for troubled youth. But could she be persuaded to fall . . . and to trust again?

Ana has been burned before so she is the one who does the burning, while taking her sister Monica out to get her out of her self imposed slump. Ana thinks that men are only good for one thing, she has her sights on Teddy the bartender, who isn't her usual type. Her type is dark, menacing and tall. She took her sister home, she stopped at her house to get some clothes for the next day. Ana fears that Teddy isn't like the others. The next day after Teddy and Ana had sex, she had low blood sugar she left the door ajar when Teddy found her he accused her of being a drug addict, saying that he doesn't have sex with drug addicts. Ana left, she left a note for him saying that she was a diabetic and left her phone number. He called to apologize to Ana for saying that, he wants to see her again Teddy wants more from her. Ana doesn't want a relationship because of what happened to her at the age of 24. What happened to Ana?  Ana gave herself a task to get Monica out of her slump, she is 34 with long red burgundy hair. She likes her men younger, she is also a diabetic. Teddy is a bartender, he acts like he has never been picked up in a bar before. Really cares about Ana, willing to give her space and time. He has blonde hair with brown eyes. Monica is Ana's sister, she is gun shy around men. She was raped when she was younger. Lou is Ana's friend, she had a daughter at 16 . She was in a abusive relationship, cares a lot about Ana and she put her life on hold to raise her daughter. There are many more characters in this book.  While reading this book I felt happy, sad. One of the quotes that I thought was sad is “ I don't want to hurt you, but I don't want to be hurt, calling it something, in my mind at least, makes me feel like I am setting us up for failure. I don't know how to explain. Please just a bit more time.” MJ Nightingale is a amazing author, I highly recommend this book. This book is my first book by MJ and it will not be my last.
