Title: Ready, Willing and Abel
Series: Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters
Author: Sarah O'Rourke
Genre: Erotic Romance Comedy
Release Date: October 13, 2015
 Patience McKinnon has never even tried to live up to her unfortunate name. Her sisters would gladly point out that she’s impetuous, fickle, and stubborn to a fault. History has taught her that she’s the only one, besides those crazy sisters, that has her best interests at heart...and she’s not about to let down her guard and let herself get hurt. She did that once...and that was more than enough. Next time, she’s fairly certain that she’d rather just shoot first and ask questions later, thank you very much!
Enter Abel Turner. The suave town attorney has had Patience McKinnon in his sights for years. Sure, he strayed along the way, but he’s always come back to the beautiful blonde bartender that fills his dreams and drives him crazy at the same time. After all, he owes her...and he plans to rectify the bad impression he made in the past with a humdinger of a sensual night. But that one night may just change both of their worlds...forever. Will Patience overcome her insecurities? And will Abel ever convince her to trust him again? Join the entire town of Paradise and the intrepid McKinnon sisters in this humorous and poignant erotica romance! Standalone.
“Their writing is steamy, ridiculously funny, and highly entertaining, yet also insightful and observant. I have loved each book in the Paradise series...” ~ Books and Binding
“I LOVED this book. The characters of Patience (maybe by name but definitely NOT by nature) and Abel had me crying with laughter at times throughout this book. And Patience's one liners and insults to Abel were just fabulous.”~ Goodreads Reviewer
“Give me ten minutes to audition for you and I’ll change your mind. I promise you’ll want the entire performance after you see what I can offer,” he whispered provocatively, trailing one lean hand up and down the curve of her waist.
“I don’t do reruns. I’m strictly a one penis, one performance kind of girl,” she muttered as much to remind herself of that harsh fact as to share it with him. “You should understand, I learned that lesson from watching you. Don’t go back.  Ever. It’s in the Abel Turner playbook.” She lifted her face to his, her eyes challenging him to fault her logic. Or break his own rules.
“Patience, this isn’t going to be a repeat for either of us. This is a whole new show,” Abel declared, his hand sliding back to her ass and pulling her closer to him.
“Same pretentious penis, same pompous play, Abel,” Patience returned dismissively, fighting the pull she felt toward him with every fiber of her being. “I’ve seen this episode; believe me, it will end in tears. Yours.”
“Thank God I’m not a man lacking self-confidence, Hellion. Otherwise, you’d be hell on my ego,” Abel groaned, burying his face in the crook of her neck while one arm contracted around her waist, holding her tightly.  
“Oh, no. Your self-confidence is unmatched,” Patience muttered, still squirming between his hard body and the wall. “It’s your self-control that needs work.” Lifting her eyes to Abel’s she narrowed her eyes to slits. “You’re not getting this, Abel, and you really need to get me here. Since all the blood in your body seems to have gotten diverted to your dick, I’m gonna speak real slow and in terms that even Dr. Seuss could understand, okay?”
Waiting for a second, she watched one perfectly shaped eyebrow lift on his handsome face in silent askance. “I will not fuck you in the hall. I will not fuck you against this wall. You should really be a better learner. I will not fuck you, Abel Turner.”

Patience is nothing like her name suggests. She is loud mouthy and if you think she'll patiently wait for you then you must be crazy. She was also burned by the only man she ever cared about. She gave him something precious and he screwed it up royally, three years later and somehow the silver tongued attorney finds his way back into her bed for a do-over. Three months after that and things get even crazier when not one but thirteen white strips rally against her in an attempt to ruin her life! Unless she can finally see the positive side to the life she has.

Abel wants nothing more than to prove himself to the one woman he cares about more than any other, but when that person is Patience McKinnon getting inside her shield will prove to test every bit of his patience. He is strong and can talk an Eskimo into buying ice, but every time he talks to Patience his tongue gets tied into knots and he only manages to make an idiot of himself.

These two are oil and water, fire and ice. They are at each others throats at every turn, but when their lips are busy doing other things they manage to get along. It's the rest of the time they have to figure out how to get along especially when the past knocks them both on their butts and danger finds them in their sleepy little town once again.

I loved seeing the push and pull between these two and once again when it comes to the McKinnon you get a ton of laughs with every chapter. I enjoyed seeing more of the storyline as a whole and can't wait for the conclusion that is yet to come!
