I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.
My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.
When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just the cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.
One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.
This book is all kinds of hot! I didn't read the first book in the series, although I don't think that really makes a big difference since each book is about a different couple. I love the chemistry between Sienna and Jared, it's electric and palpable, as much as Jared tried to fight it at the start. Jared is the type who will protect those he holds close, and it doesn't take long for Sienna to be at the top of what is a very short list for Jared.
Sienna is the innocent young woman who is trying to move past her short-lived romance with the star quarterback for the Miami NFL team, although said quarterback isn't giving up or letting go that easily. It's not until later in the book when truths are revealed that it's easy to figure out why the quarterback is so insistent when it comes to Sienna. I was shocked when the truth was revealed, and couldn't even begin to imagine how much that information changes your whole view and beliefs about your life. And as demanding and upfront Jared is, he was perfect for Sienna because he recognized right away how to be there for her.
Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
