HER: I work for the #1 fashion company, Mad Designs, as the personal assistant to the CEO, who also happens to be my best friend. Little does he know, I am completely and irrevocably in love, want, need or lust …whatever with HIS brother, the only remaining playboy Maddox.
Jacob Maddox is hot, and not just hot but mouth-wateringly sexy. He is melt your panties, fan yourself like a girl with a crush, holy crap he is looking at me… kind of hot.
We had an amazing drunken night together and then he acted as if the night never happened. Except then I knew what it was like to have him naked on top of me, talking dirty in my ear and doing things to me ten ways to Friday.
So I may or may not have talked a friend of mine into pretending to be my boyfriend. And I may or may not have pretended that the night Jacob and I shared was long forgotten.
Was I being catty and sneaky? Well you can say that.
But I’ve learned that you got to go after what you want, and I want Jacob Maddox like I want to breathe air.
But of course, he comes with complications.
Him: I am one part of Mad Designs and I’ve got it bad for my brother’s best friend. She and I hooked up several months ago and I’ve tried to push back the feelings that I had for Beth, knowing that I wasn’t the type of guy she needed. My past isn’t pretty, and she knows that. But then she starts dating some jerk and I couldn’t have that.
She thinks that she knows me from what she has seen, but now it’s time for her to get to know the real me.
But then all the shit hits the fan and I’m afraid I’m going to lose her after I’ve finally got her.
Chick and Brain Rating 4 out of 5 stars
Tarrah Anders does it again! For someone who did not mean to write this book, it sure did seem to be done on purpose. I loved both of these characters in the first book in this series, Frozen Over, so I was happy to learn they were getting their own book. Anders hits another one out of the park!
Jacob and Beth has always been attracted to each other, but never acted on it. All of this comes to head a one night with a hot and steamy culmination of all those feelings. In true Jacob fashion he runs from the one person that will make him happy. When he discovers the error of his ways, everything seems to be out to keep him and Beth apart. Sometimes your past does come back to bite you in the butt. These two do not have an easy road to each their happily ever after, but they do eventually find their way.
I honestly did not know how bad I wanted these two characters to end up together till I read the book. Perfect read for those people who are a sucker for the Friends to Lovers romances, but I highly recommend reading the first book in the series first. Although it is not a requirement to get a basic understanding of what is going on it will add a better understanding of their mutual attraction for one another.
