Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.

Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her.

Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.

My Review

* This is the second book in the Night Calls Series, however can be read alone. After reading That First Kiss I will definitely read Stranded book # 1 in the series. 

Getting her life on track is Piper Donovan main focus, for the last 2 years she has avoided going home, and now with funds low she is desperate. When she lands herself a new job at Bookish Temptations, she heads out with the girls for a celebration.
When she comes face to face with one sexy as hell man she finds herself letting all her inhibitions go and shares one explosive encounter in the bathroom.

The man had two perfect dimples that she had the urge to lick. She didn't , of course, because that would be creepy, but she could do whatever she wanted in her mind, and she was licking his face like it was the last creamsicle on the planet.

When she starts her new job a fews days later, she comes face to face with the man who had ripped her panties and had her bent over the bathroom counter.
She soon realises the man she shared that one time encounter with is vastly different to her new boss.

He fires her instantly, leaving Piper angry and desperate.
She decides she doesn't accept her firing and refuses to allow him to fire her.

Tate is an up and rising writer with trust issues and does not believe in love, and after being burned by his ex does not do commitment.
His short temper, bad communication skills and total Alpha ways are just some traits that make you fall in love with him.

Piper is strong and feisty. She doesn't let Tate walk over her. She sticks it to him at every chance she gets.

Their sexual tension is off the charts, Tate would rile her up.

 "I could make you remember," he growled. "I could bend you over this table right now and take you from behind. Would you like that?"

 Then be a total D-bag..

She was stuck in a darkened corner while her boss and former one-night stand tried to hook up with anything with a pussy.

Piper is constatly frustrated.
Tate Larson inspires anger and irritation. He is rude and demanding and yet her body didn't get that memo. It just craved him.
When they do get together they are off the charts HOT

"So fucking tight. You made me come so hard. Let me inside, baby. Say yes and I will make you feel so good." 

Tate has a dirty mouth, Oh god I love a dirty mouth….

"I want to wrap your tits around my dick and fuck the shit out of them until I come on your chest."

Ummm WOW that is a little hot!!!

But not everything is rosy and easy. There is a few miss understandings. Tate is reluctant.
What Tate was feeling for Piper wasn't something he could stop.

It was a poison that had entered his blood stream and ripped it's way through his body and he knew the exact moment that it happened: That first kiss.

Will Tate get over his commitment and trust issues? Or will he push Piper away for good?

I really enjoyed this. It was fun and sexy. So many laugh out loud moments. It wasn't heavy but kept me totally invested in Tate and Piper.
I loved Tate's Mum. She was awesome.
I loved the scene at the start with Piper's friends.
Loved the way they talked about sex hahaha had a  Sex and the City feel.
Sometimes when you read romance it can just get too serious. I loved how easy it was to love Tate and Piper. Will definitely be checking out more from J.C. Valentine.
