Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long...
Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he's her older brother's irritating best friend, and two, they're bidding on the same military security services contract.
When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady's submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.
Kady doesn't want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence--three things Colton can't give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he's not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off...or his heart closed.
Kady and Colton were old-time rivals competing for a contract. Kady was very good at her job; even better than Colton, in fact. However, being a woman put Kady at a disadvantage, not to mention Colton was a former military giving him an edge.
Despite their constant banter, they both had a secret yearning for each other, which made the tension quite intense. Poor Kady thought for a long time that Colton only saw her as his best friend's younger sister.
When the steamy encounter finally started, I was in heaven. I just love the way they embodied "rough". To me, it really wasn't that rough. Not exactly BDSM material, but nonetheless, I enjoyed reading about their time together.
I also appreciated when they had the "talk" before they went any further. Colton was such a gentleman to make sure that Kady knew what she was getting into.
I would love to see where their relationship goes after that ending. I'm not sure this series will really highlight that, but I'm happy for them both :)
