Reviewed By Dianthus

Amy Dooley is no one’s fool. She knows Slade is out of her league. He’s slick, rich, and sexy as hell. Trouble with a capital T. There’s no doubt in her mind his interest in her won’t last longer than it would take for him to get her into bed. Slade’s insistent and finds ways to bring them together, and Amy doesn’t know how long she can keep pushing him away. Or if she really wants to.

Slade Jacobs hasn’t been able to get Amy Dooley out of his mind since the night he met her at his friend’s wedding. Of course, that could have something to do with the scorching kiss they shared. He needs to explore the desire he feels for her. Since she won’t see him willingly he has to get a little creative in finding opportune moments to run into her.

Growing up with four brothers is never easy, but Amelia “Amy” Dooley used them as the ultimate test whenever she wanted to get serious about anyone. If her brothers approved then the guy was worth it, but if they didn’t….well let’s just say bloodshed could happen. But after meeting Slade Jacobs at her best friend's wedding, all bets are off. He may be well out of her league but she still wants the man behind the suit. Will waiting be enough for these two, or will the social ladder get in the way of a happily ever after?

For Slade Jacobs, not getting his way isn’t something he swallows easily. The more that Amy turns him down, the more she turns him on and just makes his attraction even hotter. She just has something about her that calls to him, but damn if he could get her to understand that. After a tricky game of truth or dare, will Slade finally get everything that he wants from Amy, or will she keep pushing until walking away is the only option?

This was a great book by a new to me author, Rita Sawyer. The plot was interesting and the sex hot. I would have liked to see Amy's behavior a bit on the more believable side. There were times when she seemed like a great character but then she would become a bit too trashy for the flow of the book and that tended to throw me off. Still, the attraction between her and Slade was immediate and sent sparks from my eReader, and the struggle that ensues was entertaining to watch unfold. I will definitely be on the lookout for other works by Rita Sawyer, since this book had such great promise.
