Every good girl loves a very bad boy…
Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…
Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.
Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?

"You want to dance?" ...
"Like Dirty Dancing you mean?" ... His jaw grazed the soft skin of her cheek.
"I can do dirty," he breathed the words against her ear. "I just don't do the dancing." ...
"I can do the dancing." Scarlett's whisper was husky. "Looks like we're evenly matched, Jackson."

I love these brazen books. They are the perfect mindless smut after an angsty book or a NA jag just to get my mind cleared. Although ordinarily they are pretty forgettable this one was awesome.

Jackson is a naughty boy, "she felt him smile against the soft skin below her ear. “I may be wearing a suit, but just so you know, I’ve still gone commando." He's a romantic guy, "you look great.” He pulled a lily from her hair and brushed the soft petals along her cheek. She wasn’t sure she beli... ...more
