If you are looking for a book with drama, this book is NOT for you! This books is sweet, sexy and simple! Its an easy, fun read with two mature characters trying to build a relationship.
Smith is described as a "bad boy" but I really didn't get that vibe. He acted like a nice guy who is sincerely interested in having a relationship with Jaime. His reputation is that he's a bad boy and they do mention of women he's dated, key word DATED. He actually went out with the women, he didn't just sleep with him. In my opinion, he was not a bad boy at all. He was just your typical hard working, dirty talking male.
Jaime is in love with the idea of romance. She love good ole' Shakespeare. She is cautious when it comes to relationships because her sisters is still suffering from a failed one. She keeps her heart guarded when she proposes to have a one-week-of-hot-sex deal with Smith. She fails because Smith is irresistible with that mouth of his ;)
Jaime and Smith were friends for years before they decided to become more. My question is: WHY DIDN'T THEY HOOK UP BEFORE? It felt a little off that nothing had happened between them for years. Do you guys get me? Anyways, that was the only thing about this book that felt "off."
Overall, this book is about two friends trying to test the waters of a more intimate relationship. It's about trust and friendship. I loved the simplicity about it.This book is a perfect example of how a simple plot can be completely consuming.
Ten minutes later, he opened the door and Jamie stood on his porch,
the moonlight illuminating her. The faint glow of the half-light made
her even prettier, her blond hair streaming down her back and over her
shoulders. He was about to make a wisecrack about late-night visitors,
but she pressed her lips against his in the sweetest kiss anyone had
ever given him. In seconds, she’d disarmed him, and a groan escaped
his throat. She brushed her lips lightly against his, kissing so
softly it was as if she were barely there. But that’s what made her
kiss so enticing; it was a promise of more.
They stood like that kissing—only kissing—for minutes, and soon he
threaded his hands into her hair, savoring the soft feel of the
strands on his rough fingers.
“Hi,” he said when she broke the kiss.
“Hi. I have a late-night delivery for you,” she said, and trailed her
hands down his shirt. His breath caught in his throat as her fingers
danced across his stomach, and she smiled as she traced the outline of
his abs. He grabbed her arms gently but firmly, and pulled her into
“Whatever delivery you have for me I don’t need the neighbors seeing,” he said.
The door was swinging shut as she claimed his mouth again. She kissed
harder this time, sliding her tongue across his, searching his mouth
as she laced her fingers through his. It was as if she were claiming
him, and he wanted that.
“I’m sorry I was worried about Melody,” she said as she pulled away.
“Don’t even think twice about it. I kind of like how you want me all to
yourself,” he said, running his finger along her cheek.
“I do. And I want to do something for you.”
He quirked an eyebrow in question.
“You’ve had a long shift. You work hard. And I want you to sleep well.”
“What do you have in mind?” he said, but whatever it was he was sure
he’d like it, judging from the way hot tension started to roll through
his veins, especially when she wedged herself between his legs,
rubbing against his erection. He grabbed her hips, tugging her closer.
She looped her hands around his waist. “You have the sexiest back,”
she said, and before he could respond, she’d dipped her hands below
the waistband of his shorts, touching his bare ass. “Have I told you
how much I love that you go commando?”
“You have not. Feel free to tell me now.”
“It is so hot,” she said, cupping his cheeks and squeezing. “You might
have the best butt in the world.”
