Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance
In the last six months, Ashley’s life has been one disappointment after another. She walked in on her boyfriend with another woman, leaving her needing a new place to live and a mountain of debt. As if that wasn’t enough, her ex convinces her that his infidelity is her fault for being unadventurous in bed.
Deep down Ashley has always had the desire to be wild but has been held back by her own insecurities. She’s desperate to break free, but she’s fearful of how people will judge her if they know her inner desires. She wants nothing more than to lose herself in sex that pushes her to the limit, but she hasn’t found anyone she trusts enough to take her there until she meets Tanner.
Tanner doesn’t trust anyone outside of his inner circle easily. The infamous, media proclaimed playboy, quarterback is tired of people using him for money, connections and to get their fifteen minutes of fame. Determined to protect his image and himself, he makes sure to keep most people at arm’s length until Ashley is thrown into his life. He’s inexplicably drawn to her, and she needs his help in more than ways than one. But to help her, he’ll need to let her in.
There’s an immediate attraction and connection that neither can deny, but can both of them get past their inhibitions and find what they are looking for in each other or will everything backfire in their faces?
“Hello, beautiful.” I smile at her as she approaches.
The smile that lights up her face is bright enough to illuminate the whole floor. God, she’s absolutely stunning, and I know she has no clue just how stunning she is, which make her even more attractive.
“Hey there, handsome. What’re guys up to?” she asks. “I hope we aren’t cramping your style tonight. I know you didn’t plan on hanging out with us.” Her insecurity is cute only because of how oblivious she is to the way every guy is looking at her.
“The minute I spotted you, I had no intention of being with anyone else for the rest of the night. I haven’t stopped thinking about you since we had dinner, but everything has been so hectic. That article of yours has done wonders for my image but not for my spare time.” I laugh. “So what were your plans for the evening, baby?” I notice her shiver each time I call her ‘baby.’ I don’t think she’s aware that she does it, so she clearly isn’t aware of how hard my cock gets when she shudders like that. I can’t remember having this problem before. No one has ever affected me this way. I’ve never called anyone ‘baby’ either, but with Ashley, it rolls off my tongue like second nature. I hadn’t been kidding when I’d said I haven’t been able to get her off my mind. I’ve been checking out her other articles over the last few weeks, and she’s been making nightly visits to my fantasies. It’s as though she inside my mind, taking control of me the instant I’m alone. I wonder what she’s doing, if she’s happy, how her day has been… Not to mention all the sexual positions I’ve pictured fucking her in.
My Review: 5/5 Stars
I am going to start off by saying the ending was mean as hell, like really mean. The things an author does to me. Summer really? OMG! Now that that’s out of the way.
I loved this book! Really, really loved it!
Ashley is insecure about herself, after her break up with her boyfriend Jason. He cheated on her and basically blamed her for his wandering ways. Can we please say douche bag.
Tanner is the star quarter back for the Jets and he feels that people only want him so that they can use him. Until he meets Ashley. Then all bets are off.
Their relationship is fast, but sweet. Tanner doesn’t bs around in letting Ashley know that he wants her. They start to see each other and everything clicks together for them.
I loved Ashley’s spunky attitude and the way she just went with the flow, though at one time I thought she totally overreacted at being teased, but I didn’t stay with me that long. I wish there would have been more parts coming from Tanners POV, but it was all good.
Quinn and Alex as supporting characters was amazing! I hope after Tanner and Ashley’s story they get their own.
Now I have to wait until they summer time to know what will happen next. It better be June, because July and August is unacceptable!
