Carter James is very good at being bad. His mischievous nature is frustrating, but impossible to resist especially since this bad boy is a cop. However, in the last four months the twinkle in his eye has dimmed since Allison Cooper became the girl who got away. When a charity assignment puts her back in his sights, Carter is prepared to play a little dirty in order to remind her of just how good they were together. But to keep her he'

I was first introduced to Cathryn Fox’ work with her Pleasure Inn trilogy. I loved them, so I jumped at the chance to read and review book one in her Boys of Beachville series.

Even after four months apart, Carter and Allison still love each other. Carter has been miserable without her and will do anything to win her back. Allison is miserable too, but fights to deny her feelings even though it is a losing battle.

The emotion is felt throughout this st

Do you have a thing for bad boys? Well then you have to meet Mr. July! Carter James is a local cop and somewhat of a town hero and he's been selected to be Mr. July for a charity calendar featuring local hunks. Allison finally lands her dream position being in charge of the account to coordinate the calendar and marketing events for it. But being in such close proximity to Mr. July's oil-slicked body was the last thing she needed.

They broke up a few mont

I didn't expect it to be a short story and I wish it wasn't. I flew through it pretty damn quickly. It was good though - for a short story :0) Let it be known that I am NOT a fan of short stories, lol. I really liked the plot, the hero and heroine. Thank God she had valid reasons for putting off the relationship & it was a nice story. Had it been a full story, I think it would have easily garnered 4 stars from me. But for now, I'm iffy between 2.5 stars or 3. I shall leave it at 3 though :0)
Sexy but short. I read this in less than a day and I love Cathryn Fox's books, they are perfect for in between the longer books, especially when I'm in the mood for something a little steamy ;) The plot was good and the characters were fitting, especially for each other.

A very enjoyable story from Cathryn Fox. As always she balances steamy sex with a wonderful love story. It's a shame that the story was so short.
