His barely-decent proposal is too tempting to resist…
Laurie Peterson assumes her impulsive one-night stand with sinfully sexy Sheriff Ethan Booker is the biggest surprise of the year…until her bakery burns down while she’s basking in the afterglow. It looks like her dreams are up in smoke, but then Ethan proposes a deal too tempting to resist.
Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart.

Do you know how hard it is to give a book a great review when you can't stand one of its main characters. It's hard. Very, very hard. Laurie aggravated me. No, I was beyond just aggravated. I wanted to shoot her in the face. Badly. Smack her upside the head at the very least. She needed a lesson... ...more

“Booker, don’t confuse me with one of your well-bred, easily -shocked, country-club girls. I’m not well-bred and nothing shocks me. My only rules are fast, hard, and so filthy dirty it leaves a stain on your soul.”
Laurie and Ethan both grew up in the wealthy beach commu... ...more
Ethan Booker makes this story 5 stars all on his own! I adored the fact that he protected and watched out for Laurie for ten years. When he realized his feelings were more, he bided his time for the right moment. I have to say, his way of telling her her one night stands were over was hot! Laurie... ...more

Outside of this Samanthe book, I've only read Compromising Her Position, the first stand-alone book in this series. With that book, I knew she will be one of those authors I can return to for my Brazen reads. So here I am again, and yup, Samanthe is defi... ...more

I am in love with this book. I adore all of Samanthe's books, but this one especially hit the mark for me for one main reason: Booker. Oh, how I loved him. He's the whole package, people, from the second he's on the page. Add in a fiesty, relatable heroine who I want to be friends with, awesome s... ...more
He could already picture her, breathless and ready as he braced her against the nearest surface and unleashed half a decade’s worth of repressed longings. Fuck her so thoroughly she’d have no standing to dismiss the event as a heat-of-the-moment hookup. He was coming for her. Her, dammit......more

I really liked Booker, I liked he we t that extra mile to make sure his woman got what she needed, “uh-uh. We’re not done. I know it wasn’t easy for you to swallow your pride and come here, but you needed me.” He parted her thighs wider to expose the source of the need. “Now it’s my responsibilit... ...more

Where to start...
I always love Samanthe's books. She just has a way of gripping the reader from the very start and sucking you in. I read this book in one sitting. Ask my kids - they had to fend for themselves all day while I stayed glued to my computer.
