GreeneLeaves, Jul 9, 2014 - Fiction

Steady, focused graphic artist Serena Colby has her life perfectly planned out. After a childhood being moved from one place to another, she’s got one overriding goal: a permanent home that’s hers and hers alone. Her career is on the rise and everything is lining up just right. That is, until disruptive copywriter Dillon Hamilton comes blasting into her workplace and spins her personal life out of control.

Serena tries to draw boundaries, but the gorgeous Dillon has a much sexier script for their lives in mind. He’s pulled towards Serena’s orbit, quickly ranking her sexiest skirts and memorizing the scent of her locally sourced organic shampoo. Serena struggles to remain unmoved by Dillon’s kinetic charm, even as she relishes their chats about their mutual passion, the Houston Rockets. 

Though order-loving Serena shies away from Dillon’s messy complications, she can’t escape her fantasies. When Dillon’s determined pursuit leaves Serena breathless, it might be ‘all systems are go’ for ROCKET MAN .….

The story "Rocket Man" was a very good story. I was not crazy for the Narrator though. She sounded like she was trying too hard to read the book sexy. The story had great interaction between the characters and the sex scenes were not too over the top. Read full review

About the author (2014)

Melanie Greene is a native Houstonian. She began writing at an early age, though her stories about unfortunate dogs and impish girls who use firecrackers unsupervised have been (mostly) lost in the mists of time. She's a voracious reader, huge audiobook fan, and generally has an overflowing bedside table full of books she can't wait to read next. Of course her favorite genre is romance!

Melanie's greatest pleasure is in creating characters who feel like friends, then giving them some (or several!) challenges to overcome on the way to Happily Ever After. Check out her steamy contemporary romances, full of brainy banter, cosmopolitan cowgirls, and hometown hunks. 

Melanie shares her life with her own hometown hunk of a husband and children so amazing they defy superlatives.
