It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.
One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.
He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
I am a huge fan of the “Hope Town” series as well as the “Corps Security” series. Actually, I have loved every single book this author writes!! So you will understand my level of giddiness when I got my hands on this gem. 😀
Just like with the previous 3 books, I absolutely fell in love with this 4th book and the characters in it!!
Shane and Nikki were both awesome characters, but they were also extremely HOT. I think this is one of the hottest books by Harper Sloan that I’ve read…which is saying something because they are all flaming!!
Shane is quite the dirty talker. 😛
Now those of you, who have read the previous book, When I am with you, are already familiar with Nikki and Shane. Nikki is Ember’s best friend and Shane’s is Nate’s. I would advise everyone to read this previous book first since Nikki and Shane do play a big part in that book. Actually… I would advise everyone to read the whole series and the Corps Security one…
Because they are that freaking good!!
Nate and Nikki are kinds of struggling with the same issue. A crazy cheating ex who just won’t take a hint and get lost.After both being stalked for about a year by their exes, these two come together and start a plot. They are both extremely attracted to one another, and since they were both burned by their exes, they aren’t looking for anything serious….
Why not take advantage of this chemistry between them, and convince the rest of the world that they are in a serious relationship in the mean time ?? That should take care of those crazy exes, who are sniffling around…and it would also take care of this crazy attraction between them.
So they make a deal… They will be a “fake” couple and enjoy each other, as long as is lasts for their exes to finally take the hint.
They didn’t expect that there would be such a huge connection between them though… Shane is quite the dominant man and being in control, is one of the most important things in his life… especially when it comes to sex. Nikki never knew she would get this turned on by his controlling ways…She is the perfect submissive to his dominant side.
Now for those of you who are not into BDSM… no worries. There isn’t any hardcore BDSM going on. This is more about who is in control…which leads to some delicious spanking and Nikki getting tied up. 😛
“Ça va être mon plaisir de jouer avec tois, chèrie”
Translation.. It’s gonna be my pleasure to play with you, darling
We all know though, that when you play with fire…you might get burned and these two are definitely playing a dangerous game. Soon the lines between “fake” and “real” start to blur…But will they be able to move on from their pasts and put their trust in one another…?!
Like I said… I absolutely loved this book.
It was a bit lower on the angsty side than the previous books. I think that is because, even though this book deals with some crazy exes, this couple mostly struggles with problems on the inside. They need to conquer their own demons…especially Shane.
What I also love about Harper Sloan’s books, is that I am guaranteed a heroine, I will like. It’s so hard for me to find books with likable heroines and she has never let me down. Nikki was absolutely wonderful and as for Shane…damn I need to know where I can find a Shane for myself!!!
I highly recommend this book, this is definitely one of my favorite MF series.
The next one will be about Shane’s sister Libby and one of the Cage boys…though I have no idea which one yet…Can’t wait!
Keep writing Harper Sloan…and I will keep reading. 😀
