Synopsis

DALE

I'm a mature and very pragmatic person, whom others like to call boring.

At least I was...until Harley came back into town...

What do you do when a girl comes back for some petty revenge against you and seduction is part of her game?

You pretend to be a millionaire dom, of course.

Yeah...it sounded better in theory. My execution keeps ending up in awkward messes, and this game between us gets even messier when I learn more about Harley. She's easy to fall for, even though she's hazardous as hell.

What happens when all the games end?

HARLEY

One simple little goal turns into one giant disaster.

On the surface, Dale Sterling seemed like an a*****e from my past; the typical arrogant guy who boulders through life and anyone in his way. So a little revenge seemed plausible, considering what he did to me once upon a long time ago. In hindsight, it was immature. But revenge has kept me on top of the world since I stopped being on the bottom of everyone's shoes, so I make no apologies for my immaturity.

But Dale is weirdly kinky...

Everything is going fine...until it gets real. Now the guy I wanted to humiliate is the same guy I'm begging my heart not to stupidly fall in love with.

Unfortunately, my heart tends to be stubborn.

 Review

It's like going home after a few months away! You settle in, you catch up with old friends and family, you laugh at their problems, you rejoice when things have gone right and you feel right along with them when they're sad.  You want to smack their heads together when they fight but most of all you love them. 

I'm not even gonna cover it up or try and make out I'm unbiased.  I'm not unbiased this is one of my all time fave series and authors.  I don't care if you know this.  This is fact! End of! So... if you're reading this review bare that in mind and then read the rest of the series cause I'm like this for a reason people!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

This is book 10 in the Sterling Shore series.  This is Dale and Harley.

Dale is usually always the sensible one in the Sterling family.  He's a grown up.  When all the others have been having fun and getting the girls he's sat back and been content with working and sorting out his cousin's and friends messes.  We've seen in previous books in the series he had a little drama with a past relationship but not much.  He's level headed and we find out in this book he's always been like that.  He's seen his parents relationship and has followed their lead.  Find someone you like and grow to love them.  He's not expecting lust and need just friends hopefully leading to love. 

Harley is an outcast.  Not in with her own family she's not wanted by them and she feels she's never been good enough.  She went to school with all the Sterling's but her school experience was nothing like theirs.  She was a loner and Dale was pretty much the only guy she spoke to.  Unfortunately a misunderstanding leads her to end up hating Dale.  She finished school early and left town determined to make something of herself and prove everyone wrong.

She returns to Sterling Shore a success.  Determined to show them all she made it.  She wants revenge.

Just like every single book in this series it's completely different from the others.  Dale isn't cocky and arrogant.  He isn't loud and attention seeking.  He's a normal guy who's a little insecure.  He's kind of lived his life in the shadows of his friends and family and he's been content with that but in this book he really comes into his own.  Harley is unlike any other girl he's met because she only see's him.  Not the family name and status dating a Sterling would gain her. She only has eyes for him not any of his cousins and this gives him confidence as the story goes on. 

Harley is just wonderful.  She's you or i.  She's made something of herself and is proud of that but she wants others to think the same way.  Her dad thinks shes nothing.  Her mom uses her she has no one to back her up and stand up for her.  She can totally do it herself but it would be nice if someone else would too.  I love how you see both sides to her.  Both the strong independent woman but also the vulnerable side.  When she see's Dale again everything she ever thought about him goes out the window.  He's the only man she has ever had a thing for and she finds he's still the sweet guy who gave her the time of day in high school.  She can't believe he actually likes her for her,

These two together are so sweet.  They both feel the same but both have insecurities they need to get over.  They both save each other.  The pull between them has them feeling the lust and passion missing from both of their lives.

There's plenty of heat to get those juices flowing! lol The build up is near unbearable! Jeezus H Christ you end up virtually panting for them to finally get it on!! Teasing hell! lol  When they do well... not only is it hot but it's funny as too! Dale gets himself in a bondage situation he can't back out of.  literally! lmao

As with most of this author's books the comedy in them is off the scales! The sex shop scene with his cousins will have you crying laughing.  One hot swollen scene will have you cringing behind your hands both laughing and in embarrassment for them.  

Of course it never runs that easy and misunderstandings ensue but the ending is so worth it!

The story keeps you turning those pages so fast you'll need a re-read straight away to make sure you didn't miss anything.  I did!

I also love how you see all the other characters in every book.  The couple from book 1 right up to ones who haven't had their story yet.  You already know these people and love them.

The thing about these stories is they make you care.  They make you want them so badly to have the happiest ever after they can possibly get.  I said at the start about family.  Reading this series you become part of that family.  I am a Sterling!!

Highly recommend this book, this series, this author in general.

Excerpt

DALE

“I don’t have any idea how to use all this stuff,” I whisper-yell, and they both turn to look at me like I’ve sprouted a second head.

My cousins are loading down baskets full of somewhat complicated, kinky shit, yet I’m the one who is an idiot for not knowing how to use it.

Unbelievable.

I should have gone to Rye and Brin.

“You don’t actually use it,” Maverick says, his smile turning mocking.

“You kinky bastard,” Corbin adds, goading me with his own taunting smile.

I’m going to kill them both.

“Then why are we buying it?” I growl.

They exchange a horrified look mixed with fascination before doubling over, laughing harder and drawing too much attention our way.

“You really are a kinky little shit, aren’t you?” Maverick asks through his guffaws. “You wanted to use this stuff?”

Dead. They’re both dead.

“It’s always the quiet ones,” Corbin says, too damn amused for his own good.
