Just some fun. Just one night of reckless, harmless, wild fun.

That's what I told myself the night I hooked up with quite possibly the sexiest guy I've ever known. Only, I didn't want to KNOW him. Life is a series of temporary situations, or so it's always been for me. A future revolves around the next move, but I'm still the type to live in the moment on a seldom occasion, consequences be damned.

Unless that moment happens to be unknowingly landing in bed with my brand new stepbrother. The universe is a mean, twisted jerk. And one consequence is that I have to be around him and get to know him. The worst consequence is the fact that Maverick Sterling, the infamous playboy who can't possibly be tamed, is really hard not to want more of once you've had a taste. So long as I'm not stupid enough to fall in love, it shouldn't be a big deal. Right?


My life has been blissfully simple for a really long time. I have a routine. I have friends. I have family. Yet everyone seems to have less and less time, since they're all sort of trying to be adults or what the hell ever. I blame them for the fact the only girl to ever ditch me without a backward glance is suddenly under my skin. I blame my father for the fact she's a new fixture in my life. Not that I knew that before I got a little overly friendly with my new stepsister. I mean, what are the odds? It shouldn't have been possible.

But it happened. It figures the one girl I can't get out of my head is the one girl who doesn't want to be with me. At least in my head she's the only girl who doesn't want to be with me, because I tend to be arrogant like that. The point is, now she's everywhere I turn, yet she's marking a line in the sand that she thinks I really won't cross.

Obviously she doesn't know me at all.

Yep I'm gonna go full on gush all over the floor!! yep gross vision but meh who cares!!

I love this series. Not just love i FLOVE IT!! It has everything you need from a series. Hot sexy men, yuh huh!! not just a few but all of them!! Then we have girls we can all relate to. Not just one but again all of them!! Lots of fun. Lots of action. Bit of angst, bit of suspense. Fabulous setting, it's bloody home is what it is. I actually feel like I'm there when i dive into any of these books and i think that tells you how great it really is.

Ok now to gush specifically about this book.

Mav never has to chase a girl. They come to him. Girls know it will never be anything serious with him and he makes sure they know this. One night in Silk he spots Salem. New in town she's something of a new conquest for him. He knows she wants him to chase and plays along with her.

Salem is new in town and goes out for a night of fun. She knows she'll never have a serious relationship but goes in for a little fun now and again when the mood takes her. She spots Mav and see's girls throwing themselves at him. In order to get him she makes him come to her.

When they come together they both agree to a no strings night of fun. Salem sneaks out afterwards and this leaves Mav with a foreign feeling. He's a little annoyed he didn't get more. A series of events leads them to meeting again at his beach house. Both unaware of each others circumstances they are both totally surprised to find the other there. Because of said circumstances, I'm not spoiling that bit for you, they become "friends" <--- LOL yeah really *rolls eyes*

Now, not sure about anyone else but i was really surprised by Maverick. I felt for sure he would mess up everything when it came to his story. I thought he'd be a little bit of a douche if I'm totally honest. BUT, i was totally bowled over by him. I always liked him don't get me wrong. But i never got him. But boy do i get him now! he's ripped my heart out of my chest and stored it in his fictional book boyfriend "you're mine now" pocket! He's totally stolen it and as far as I'm concerned he can keep it. There's so much i loved about him. He does mess up a few times but you know what? I love it because he absolutely owns it!! He's all yes i messed up. I'm gonna fix it. We'll be fine. I absolutely FLOVED this about him. He's also kinda sweet. Well not kinda he freaking is!! He's charming and would make your granny Jean swoon! and he has the biggest...he knows exactly how to use it... and he knows how to get the old heart racing and the need for air con to be cranked up!! i mean a warm up first?? Bloody hell i neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddddddddd me some of that!

Then we have Salem. As I've said this author knows how to write a girl you can love. A girl that's a little messed up. A girl that has insecurities like the rest of us. A girl who could easily be your bestie. Salem is right up there with Ruby and Brin for me. She's sassy and feisty but dig deep enough and she'll show you her heart.

The two of them together are absolutely perfect. I can't gush enough. I love them. Seee what i said? THEM this isn't just Maverick's book it's Salem's too.

As with the rest of the series the story and plot is brilliant. Every book in this series has a different tone to it and this was no different. You never know what you're going to get and yep you guessed it i loved it!!! There's also a generous helping of very funny laugh out loud, wee your pants moments.

As usual the majority of the Sterling Shore family are in here and they add massively to every story. This is now exception and i love catching up with them all.

Not sure how many "love"'s i can get in here but I'm trying to break a record lol Told ya gushfest!!

I highly recommend this book. It can be read as a stand alone but you would be missing out on one of the best series you will ever read if you do. I mean it! It's brilliant. Off the charts!! If i was to say one series which is a must read? I would say this one. LOVED IT! FLOVED IT!! RECOMMEND IT!!! Go buy it and join the family!
