For Connor Morrison and Wes Martin, it’s been over a year together and their life is as perfect as they think it is…except Connor is keeping secrets such as someone reporting to the college on their unconventional relationship and it could mean Connor may lose his job. Plus Connor is still treating Wes like he is fragile flower. Wes knows that the beating he got over a year ago haunts Connor but he is tired of secrets, lies and more. What happens next will either make their relationship stronger or tear them apart forever.

Author Cat Grant’s Irresistible Attractions series is a delight to read. I loved meeting Connor and Wes in the first book, Priceless, and FEARLESS continues their story with a few twists that leave you scrambling to turn the page to see what happens next. I have to strongly recommend you read book one, Priceless, before you read FEARLESS, as this story makes mention of the events in the first book a few times and you may be a bit confused. What I love about th is series is how real the characters are. They live, work, love like the rest of us yet the reader gets a sense of how much the author really knows her characters. You can tell by reading these stories in the Irresistible series. Who hasn’t wanted to tell their loved one to stop hovering or find out that they were keeping something from you to keep you from worrying? The dynamics between Wes and Connor are magnified in the story as Wes tries to finish getting his Phd and try to give Connor some love as well. Connor is determined to keep Wes safe after the bloody beating Wes got haunts his every waking moment. The characters continue to wrap their way around you and steal your heart in the process. I was on pins and needles, eager to see if these two would be able to kiss and make up before their big day.

FEARLESS is more about two people in love, it is about letting bad memories stop keeping you hostage while trusting your partner as well as yourself that life can go on, will go on and that just because some bad things happened, it shouldn’t color your whole perspective. FEARLESS is about accepting yourself, your lover and trust that your heart knows what it is doing even as you feel you need to protect your loved one from life. But life has a way of slapping you on the head, saying knock it off. It’s about letting yourself trust that the person you are sharing your life with is the perfect partner for you, that they ‘get’ who you are and love you for that. FEARLESS is all that and more. This is a story that weaves a magic spell around you, steals your heart and you just itch for more of these wonderful characters. 

I am eager to see what happens next for Connor, Wes and the rest of the Irresistible Attractions characters in the next book. I highly recommend this series if you enjoy happily for now stories with adorable characters and a fast paced storyline. Cat Grant has a new fan after reading FEARLESS. I can’t wait for more of her work in the future.
