Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long…
Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he’s her older brother’s irritating best friend, and two, they're bidding on the same military security services contract.
When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady’ssubmission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.
Kady doesn’t want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence—three things Colton can’t give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.
Colton and Kady have know each other for quite some time. They grew up together and he is Kady's, brother's, best friend. He is irritating no less and sees her as someone she isn't anymore, or does he?
These two made me laugh and smile. I enjoyed the banter and the nitpicking between the two of them. You could certainly see and feel that there was much more between the two and when they act on it they certainly turn the tables and take it all to a different level, one that they are both unsure of.
This is a short read, a great fast paced story that heats up when Colton and Kady are stuck in the same motel room. She wants something more, something he doesn't know but learns after discovering a book in her bag and he wants to give it to her but isn't so sure she deserves it or how she will receive it coming from him.
"The guy in your book? I'm that guy,"he said.
After all they know the sexual desires are there because of what happened three years ago so there are just a few things standing in the way that need to be clarified.
"White undershirt. Dark-framed glasses. Sneak peeks at black boxers. Really? How much more was a girl supposed to be able to take before she either spontaneously combusted or found a shower with a removable shower head?"
I love Laura Kaye's writing and another one of my favorite books of hers is Hearts in Darkness so be sure to check them out. I highly recommend them! Great quick, fun, steamy reads!!
