◄◄Goodreads Blurb ►►
Wes Sinclair is a notorious heart-breaker, a hot as sin bad boy with a panty-dropping smile no woman can resist. Except for his best friend’s little sister and business adversary, Natalie Prescott, who seems immune to his flirtatious charms. While she’s become a permanent fixture in his dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies, she wants nothing to do with him, or his seductive promises. Challenge accepted. His goal? To bring her to her knees, make her beg, and show her just how good being bad can be.
◄◄My Thoughts ►►
Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde are a dynamic duo of awesomeness!! This book is smoking hot!
The writing is great. The story and flow were excellent. The true winner for me, though is the heroine. I enjoyed both main characters, but Natalie really stole the show. She’s sassy, driven, focused, unashamed, and just an all-around great female character. She’s not afraid to take a challenge head on and succeed at what she puts her mind too. I can relate to her and not surprisingly, loved her immensely. Our hero, Wes, is cocky, handsome, a bit of a bastard at times, but he has his reasons. I appreciated his progression from cocky bastard to loving boyfriend. All in all though, they were sexy as hell!
The brother’s best friend trope is used here, but not in an overbearing sense. It’s there, but the MCs aren’t agonizing over every decision they make and how it will affect their other relationships. That was most refreshing!
I have to admit I don’t really get how it’s forbidden to date your best friend’s brother or sister. After all, my husband and I were setup by his sister. Luckily things also work for Wes and Natalie. LOL
Here’s what I absolutely loved: I’m a total sucker for tie-ins and crossovers to other series! The couples from the Dirty Sexy series all make an appearance. It was great to have a little catchup with them.
Overall, this was a win for me. It was a very enjoyable read. I’ve read or listened to 5 books from Carly Phillips or the duo in the past couple months, only two of those books were ARCs. So, I think that means they’ve made a real impression on me! I’m looking forward to more!
I rate it:
