Ex-boxer Mike Logan struggles to put a brutal past behind and make ends meet as a bus driver. When a young runaway settles for an all-night ride, he seizes the chance to do a good deed—get her home safely. But first, they’ll drive around and talk.

What he doesn’t anticipate is that this broken night angel is also a sexy little minx needing a lot more…and not just the gentle kind.

In August 2020, Shade Addiction was nominated for Book of the Month at the TBR Pile.






Mike is a bus driver with a past he’d rather forget. When he meets the mystery shade it’s a simple ride that turns into a rescue. What follows is a romance that may just save them both…

Shade addiction starts off with a shocking scene and absolutely made me love Mike Logan. It shows his morality, his characters and I really loved the peek into his soul. Shade is so much of a mystery. She gives little hints here and there to share the bare minimum. This definitely urged me to unravel her story. They start an odd friendship with the silent hints of attractions. It escalates to something more, something neither of them saw coming. I liked their relationship. It felt very authentic and real. Flaws are natural in couples. If you enjoy slow sizzling romances then Shade Addiction should be high on your to read list!
