Adult Romance 18+
Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can't stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich family's charities. He's a rough and tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.
Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden's non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it wont be the last, as far as Brent's concerned.
Hayden has a secret, though. Her father's company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden's marriage to the CEOs wealthy son can secure the deal. If she's to protect her family, she'll have to forget Brent. And he has no intention of being forgotten.
Perfect read for a cold, wet, winter day. Tessa Bailey has managed to turn two of the most unlikable characters into two of my favorites. They are like a "beauty and the beast" love story. Neither one much likes the other until the bedroom sparks fly, then they realize the chemistry and fire that has been missing in their lives. The back and forth dynamic is great, you just can't help falling for both of them. Another hit in this series! Can't wait to see who's up next.
