Secretly wanting her—no problem. Her not-so-secretly wanting him—big trouble.
The Bradfords, Book 3
There’s only one problem with the woman Jason “Mac” Gordon wants: his best friend’s little sister is off limits. Way off limits, and too young and innocent for the likes of him. From past experience, he’s learned to hide his not-so-nice preferences from the nice girls he seems to attract. That definitely includes the woman he’s always thought of as a sister. At least until recently.
Sara Bradford always gets what she wants—which is partly Mac’s fault. After all, he helped spoil her. So she has no intention of taking his no for an answer on anything—least of all his refusal to sleep with her. He thinks she’s too innocent? Fine. She’ll simply get un-innocent and show Mac that she wants him—the good, the bad and the nipple clamps.
When Mac’s plan to drive her away works too well, he’s forced to follow her to a tropical paradise, determined to make sure she doesn’t find her wild side with anyone but him. Once she gets a real taste of what he likes, he’s sure everything will go back to normal.
That’s until he discovers a slight kink, er, flaw in his logic…
Warning: Contains hot sex at the beach, kinky online shopping—and yes, cotton-candy-flavored body powder does exist.
I really enjoyed the first two books by Ms. Nicholas and I was looking forward to this one. However, I have to state that from moment one I didn’t like this book as much as I liked the previous ones.
Please don’t get me wrong, Ms. Nicholas is an expert at creating hot sex scenes and she doesn’t disappoint in this book either. But, I found Sara’s character to be unlikable as the heroine of this book. I have read spoiled heroines before and usually I like the transition in the book where the heroine grows up over the course of the story. In this book, I didn’t feel that she actually did. I kept trying to figure out if she was twenty-five or fifteen or maybe even ten years old. Sure, she grows up sexually, and that is fun to watch but that is the only way I found her to progress.
But, Mac is a very hot character and I loved reading him. The sex scenes are hot and if you are a fan of Ms. Nicholas’ work you should read this book to keep up with the fun contemporary series.
