The fmc is a bit of a pushover and desperate for love so against her better judgement, she sleeps with a guy she found on a hookup app to get out of her post breakup funk even though he’s kind of an asshole and makes some misogynistic remarks the first time they meet. The morning after they have sex he’s suddenly all Gaga for the girl even though he knows nothing about her and even made it clear that sex is all it’s gonna be. When  they see each other again a month later first thing they do is fuck and he “claims her as his” and is pretty possessive overall like the title says. I just feel like this story definitely could’ve been better and had more romance and plot (even as a novella) but it was just eh.

Three possessive cowboy stars ☆☆☆

After going through a year long dry spell, Raina decides she needs to add some excitement into her life- a one-night-stand. She meets Maverick on the Hush app, a place for people to find hook-ups. They meet at a bar one night and after he leaves a bad impression, she almost walks out but he redeems himself. They spend one passionate night together... and she's gone by the time Maverick wakes up!

I'll admit- I didn't care for Maverick.

"For the first time, I tear my eyes away from her body and look at her face."


"I’m a cowboy on his night off looking to blow off some steam. I’m not looking for my goddamn soul mate or something."

But he redeems himself in the end! I thought this was an alright romance, I would've preferred for Mav to be a little more likeable though.
