(Please note that J. Lynn is JLAs adult books and this one is VERY adult)
Chad Gamble, all-star pitcher for the Nationals, is one of the best players on—and off—the field. And right now, the notorious bad boy wants Bridget Rodgers. But with her lush curves and snappy comebacks, the feisty redhead is the kind of woman a man wants to settle down with…and that’s the last thing Chad needs.
When the paparazzi catch them in a compromising position, Chad’s manager issues an ultimatum: clean up his act or kiss his multi-million dollar contract goodbye. To save his career, his meddling publicist says he'll have to convince everyone Bridget isn’t just his flavor of the week, but his girlfriend.
Being blackmailed into a fake relationship with Chad Gamble isn’t easy, especially when the sizzling physical attraction between them is undeniable. With a month to go on their arranged pretense, it's going to take every ounce of willpower they have not to fall into bed together...or in love.
5 stars - Scorching HOT from the get go & just got better from there!
What do I say about this book? I can tell you that I LOVED the first book in this series, Tempting the Best Man. I don't read as much adult books and this series is truly ADULT but I loved it. As much as I loved TtBM, TtP was so much better. Why?
I'm thinking it's Chad. He's VERY rough around the edges and his image is even worse than reality. NO way is this man falling for just ONE girl. But then he sees Bridget. Everyone agrees that Bridget is NOT Chad's normal women, including his babysitter - heehee. Not telling what that's about but it's too funny. Back to this Bridget being different than his normal fare - yeah THAT's what makes her different and the boy has no chance - though he puts up a good fight. Or rather she does. Have I said too much? Hmmm....yes maybe I have.
Bottom line, this book is one scorching hot ride - pun intended - with a delicious story compelling you forward! Easily, this book is a one sitting kinda book. I took two but not because I didn't want to do it in one!!!
If you loved Tempting the Best Man, then this one is a RUN RIGHT NOW AND GET IT kinda book. If you haven't read TtBM, you can still read this one - it's a companion kinda series BUT you will so want to read TtBM later - just sayin'
So if hot, sexy, steam romance is your thing, then RUN, do not walk, to pick this one up.
