Synopsis: Real estate tycoon Luke McCall has a plan to take down the underhanded competitor messing with his livelihood. He intends to romance the man’s daughter, gain her trust, and get the information he needs to put his rival out of business once and for all. He just didn’t plan for the way she makes him feel.Grace Wilson is tired of men using her smarts, social position, or her father’s status for their personal gain. It’s time for a new philosophy: Test. Screw. Dump. But after she meets Luke, she’s not sure she’ll be able to walk away. Not only is he sexy and charming, but he survives every test she puts him through. But can she trust a guy who seems too good to be true?
Excerpt:“Body shots?” Grace’s face paled for a second before she recovered. “No problem. I can hold my liquor.”“Body shots make things more interesting, don’t you think? Or is it your virtue you’re worried about?”
“Have we been transported to the nineteenth century or something?” She hit the play button. “I can play hard with the big boys. No worries about that.”
The movie had been on for less than five minutes when Luke spoke. “Looks like you’ll have to go first.” He paused the movie, stripped his shirt over his head, and placed a full shot glass on his navel, some salt right below, and stuck a wedge of lime in his mouth.
She licked her lips before hovering over his torso. Her tongue snaked out and licked the salt. When her breath warmed his skin, his dick noticed. The situation got worse when she cupped her mouth around the shot glass and sucked it down. By the time she captured the lime wedge from his mouth, he’d come perilously close to the point of no return.
Ah hell…and the movie had just started.
It was his turn next. She lifted her sweater to beneath her rib cage and placed the shot and salt like he’d done. The smell of her skin tickled his nose as he inched closer. It took every ounce of willpower he possessed to not do something really stupid. Even though taking her to bed wasn’t the reason he was here, right now it felt like a great idea, especially when he kissed her, and the taste of lime, tequila, and her mixed inside his mouth.
Her breath whooshed out between her lips. “I…I…”
She couldn’t seem to get the words out and neither could he. Instead, she hit the play button.
High on raging testosterone, it was soon his turn again.
“Oh no.” He pushed her hands away from only revealing her rib cage. “It’s time to go big or go home.”
“What do you mean?” The gulp eased down her throat as she looked at him.
Instead of verbalizing the wayward trajectory of his thoughts, he pulled the sweater over her head, revealing a red lacy bra that didn’t hide a damn thing. Taut nipples poked through like a siren’s call to his overcharged hormones.
Because he wanted to up the ante for no other reason than he’d lost his damn mind, he made the whole situation even more difficult for himself. “This time we’re doing it properly—between your breasts.”
Her eyes drew wide as she lay down. A mixture of trepidation and sexual attraction reflected in her expression. She pulled in a breath as he placed the shot glass and sprinkled the salt on the swell of her right breast. He handed her the slice of lime, and her fingers shook as she placed it in her mouth.
Before he knew what was happening, he’d unhooked her bra.
Okay, so the story is not anything we haven’t read before a gazillion times, but I loved that the author twisted a bit and made Grace the one and done character. It added just enough of a difference to captivate me and keep me invested. It could have used a bit more sexy for my taste, but it was still very enjoyable. It’s a good story written well. You can’t really ask for much more than that 🙂
