She thinks he’s the perfect guy for her… his only downfall… he happens to be the twin brother of the guy who broke her heart eight years ago. Garrett Reaver isn’t the settle down kind of guy, and Ridley just screams it. He did what he had to do all those years ago, but he hasn’t been able to forget about her and move on.
When Garrett comes back to town and is determined to show Ridley just what she could have in a relationship with him, she’s determined to ignore him, but it turns out she can’t quite get him out of her system either.
I am a fan of Katee Robert… I really am. I like her writing style and I, for the most part, like her stories. AND three stars isn’t bad, I’m just going to say that up front, because I want you guys to know that while I didn’t love this story, I liked it. It was good… just not as good as some of her other stuff.
I think my problem came in that I didn’t connect with these characters at all through the story and the story itself didn’t really work for me. I didn’t love either Garrett or Ridley and that really breaks a story for me. Sure, they were somewhat interesting, but I couldn’t get invested in their story. I haven’t read the other books in this series, as they are written by other authors, though I may check them out eventually. I do have the fourth book, also by Katee, that features Will that I’m definitely going to read because the one thing that did intrigue me in this book was Will Reaver.
If you’re looking for something that is a bit BDSM light and has an interesting premise, give this series a try!

With each and every book I read by Samanthe Beck I fall more and more for her and her writing. She's an auto-buy for me and Falling for the Enemy hasWith each and every book I read by Samanthe Beck I fall more and more for her and her writing. She's an auto-buy for me and Falling for the Enemy has solidified that even more.
Ginny Boca has sworn off men and sex... not even the sexy, hot new man she sees walking around town can change her mind, but when he pulls her off the street, saving her from a crazy driver she can't help but imagine what it'd be like to get to know him. Instead she offers a free haircut.
Shaun Buchanan's plan to stay under the radar gets shot to hell when he saves Virgina from getting run down on the street and he certainly didn't expect his free haircut to turn into a night of amazing sex... but it did. And the fact that he's the current mayor's son and Ginny is running against him in the election adds just another complicated layer.
But both Ginny and Shaun aren't ready to stop meeting each night, and Shaun doesn't want to be kept a secret forever... only Ginny isn't sure they can be anything more than what they currently are.
I loved loved loved Ginny. She's strong and smart and she goes for what she wants. She's proud of who she is and what she does and she knows she has a lot to offer their little town... she's not going to just let the current mayor make a fool out of her either.
And Shaun... dear lord. Beck had me at former Navy Seal. I seriously have a thing for military guys and Shaun is a perfect example of why. Strong and alpha and protective, but respectful and polite and willing to do what he has to to take care of those he loves.
These two together were definitely explosive and I really enjoyed getting to know them.
Anything by Samanthe Beck is a must read and this is just another to add to the list! I'm definitely looking forward to anything and everything Beck writes for us next!
