Sometimes it’s good to be bad…
When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn't do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.
Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.
As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.
Oh, my…this was a hot read! When Skylar decides that she’s tired of being the rule-following, good-girl she’s always been, she sets her sights on the ultimate bad boy – Gage Holt…former MMA fighter, head of security at the nightclub he is part owner of, and carrying around enough emotional baggage to keep his heart locked up tight for good.
I just loved Skylar – her candor with Gage was great, and I loved how she was the one who was always keeping things real, but she also wasn't afraid to push Gage for more when she realized that things were becoming more than just a casual fling. And when events from Gage’s past and family problems threaten to tear them apart, she still does whatever she can for him, even as he pushes her away.
Gage…whew, that boy could dirty-talk! He’s sexy, alpha, and not quite the guy you want to bring home to mom, but underneath it all, he’s just a man who doesn't know how to trust or rely on anyone for anything. And he knows he’s no good for Skylar, but he just can’t keep away from her...and when he finally gives in to a relationship with her he can just be the sweetest, dirtiest-talking man around! Of course that doesn't mean he’ll let her into his heart or learn to trust…
I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to check out some other stories by Elle Kennedy - if her other heroes are half as hot as Gage was they should be great reads! And it looks like this is the start of a new series, which should make for some more great reads based upon the characters that were introduced in this book. Definitely one for the hot summer reads list!
I was given a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
