Some men won’t take no for an answer.

And some women might find this flattering, being asked out over and over again by a man determined to have you. But not me.

Not that the man in question isn’t sexy as sin, funny as hell and charming as they get.

Because he is.

Sometimes you just can’t allow yourself to be interested in someone for other reasons, other variables.

Saxon Tate is forbidden. And I can never allow myself to even consider going there again.





I gotta say, I didn't like Saxon before. I don't know.. he was just not memorable in my opinion. So that being said, I actually did not put a high expectation on this. But surprise, surprise! Saxon is by far, hands down, One of my favorit

☆ I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you SO MUCH hun!! ☆

3.75 stars!!


Normally, I like to embellish and give a brief of the plot in detail but I don’t feel the real need to since it's basically what the synopsis states really. Boy wants girl, but girl resists due to the guy’s past dating history and an unspoken and common acknowledged girl code which is not to date your friends’ exes. Hence, two strikes already against him. Now throw in some jealous groupies

While I adored Saxon, Tenielle was really off-putting for me. I'm all for having confidence in yourself, but I swear she must spend an hour every morning kissing herself in the mirror. Her ego was so inflated it drove me a bit insane. She sounded like a twat, someone needed to knock her down a peg or two. get a grip woman not everyone wants a piece of you. Argh


It's hard for me to really enjoy a book when the heroine isn't very likeable. Saxon should have been matched with someone a bit

Allow me to demonstrate:

The following quotes are literally from the first 10-15 pages of this joke of a book that I, like hell, did not finish.

"I try to see myself as he would see me. Black hair, caramel-colored skin from my mixed Sri Lankan and Australian heritage.." Much eXoTiC

"We have women throwing themselves at us every day, and it's lost its appeal. Not that I usually take them up on their offer. I've fucked two groupies this whole year, and that was only because I was sick of being lonel

I will probably just repeat my other reviews for Ms. Fernando’s books. I don’t think I have picked up one of her books and not devoured it in one day. The writing just flows and is so easy to lose yourself in that it feels like you just started the book when you are actually half way through. What’s not to love about a strong kick-ass female with a smart ass mouth? Pair that up with a male who is bossy and knows what he wants and absolutely will not take no for an answer and you can’t go wrong. ...more

OMG! If you have read the Resisting Love Series by this author you will know who Saxon is, but its not essential to thoroughly fall in love with this book !!
This is the story of Saxon & Tee, and right from the word go you will love it !! I just couldn't put this book down. Sax or as i named him SEX! was just hot and adorable and totally alpha. Tee is an amazing character, with strength, independance and speaks her mind and comfortable in her own skin.
Tee is the best friend of Saxon's ex Lexi
3.5/4 Stars

Saxon Tate has been wanting Tee from afar, seen as she won't give him the time of day and keeps rejecting his advances.

As much as Tee doesn't want to want Saxon, she can't ignore the fact the man is seriously hot and has no fear telling him. However there's a few things that stop her from giving into Saxon...

"Saxon Tate is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend.

He cheated on her.

Saxon's Past is used to against him but he wont let that stop him.
As much as Tee try's how long can she keep denyi

The Story was fun , short and sweet . I loved Tee and Saxon together ! .. Tee is an amazing heroine , she's beautiful , funny , loyal and confidant but also vulnerable . Saxon was really hot and sweet and oh so possessive . From the blurb we know that Saxon dated Tee's best friend and cheated on her . So I was nervous going into this , but after reading it , I can honestly say I enjoyed it , It wasn't a "sloppy seconds" situation , Saxon made sure that Tee knows she's the only one for h

Saxon Tate is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend.
He cheated on her.
He could possibly cheat again.
That's three strikes.
He’s out.


What I feel for Tee is on a whole different playing field, and I don’t even understand it.
I haven’t even had her yet.
But I’ve wanted her for that long.


The book was okay I didn't really get into it like would have liked. It just feels like I've read a book like this before....a little bit same 'ole.

This book I was waiting for. Saxon I really enjoyed. I loved how T made him fight for what he wanted and fought hard for her. He balanced her because she had her own issues and he snuck in and got her heart. I can't wait for what is next for them

I hate cheaters but I'm hoping he'll redeem himself.

Saxon absolutely redeemed himself. He was the perfect man; loyal, alpha, trustworthy, and HOT.
I liked this story a lot, I wish it had a little more of an edge, but that's okay.
Overall, really good book.
4 stars!!!

"You're such a fucking caveman."

About This Book:

What do you do when you start wanting your best friend's cheating ex-boyfriend?


And then deny some more.

This story is about Tenielle "Tee" Crawford and Saxon Tate. They're both very much attracted to each other and Saxon has been asking her out for ages but always ends up getting rejected. He knows in his gut that there could be something amazing between them but how to convince the stubborn woman to give him a chance?

Sep 27, 2015 rated it it was amazing
I want Saxon, please. A man that wants me. Will persue me. He is a famous rockstar and turns away groupies, because I am the woman for him. I'm enough for a hot man like that!! And I'm not stick thin? I want to be Tenielle!!
Saxon persued Tee for a long time. He was her best friends ex and well he cheated on Lexi, but learned his lesson. P.S (Lexi & Ryder is from the resisting love series). Ryder is Tee's cousin, he is also in the up and coming band Morning Alliance- that Saxon is a drummer

Just in LOVE with Saxon.... Could he be more perfect?!? I mean:

“a delicious package, complete with piercings, tattoos, and a huge cock.”

What more can we ask for!?? RIGHT!! ❤❤ Loved how he earned her trust, fought for her and knew from the beginning she was like no other.

Tee was amazing, omg I loved her.... Her personality was the bomb, so freaking funny, sassy, self confident, pompous, the banter she threw with everyone was hilarious, such a unique chracter!

I love the guys from the Resisting Love series - Chase, Kade, James & Ryder - a bunch of hot alpha males. I also enjoyed how the characters, literally and figuratively, became a family. Their different personalities meshed to create lots of funny conversations. Saxon was first introduced in the other books as the sexy and gorgeous drummer of Ryder's band, Morning Alliance, and ex- boyfriend of Ryder's girl, Lexi. His character created tension in Ryder but also showed a tender and funny side

I am a huge fan of Chantal Fernando, this is not a secret. Her writing style is phenomenal.

As usual, I got sucked in from page one, and didn't want the story to end. Chantal can concur, I immediately messaged her and asked her "Who's Next?", only to be informed that it is indeed a standalone novel.

Saxon is that guy. The one that you tell all your friends not to trust. He's got a playboy reputation, sexy good looks, & cocky attitude to go with it. He's the one that broke your best friend's

It's feels like I have been waiting for Saxon forever. I think it's because the first time I read about him I wanted more. If you have not read Chantal's other books... Go get them because it all ties in with this book. I loved seeing all her old characters and one point I thought I needed a reread. I think that surprised me the most. So, let me introduce him to you.

I was given an ARC for a honest review. I really enjoyed the book and wish I had more to read. Alas my heart is broken because this is a stand alone novel. Saxon Tate will be your next BBF! He is sex on a stick and reformed bad boy. He's the sexy azz drummer of Morning Alliance and a chics wet dream. Tee is the chic that you want as a BFF. She is blunt, takes no sh**, is funny and sarcastic. She's the friend that gets you into trouble when you go out, & Saxon has his sights on her. These 2 h ...more

Ok so I knew this book was gonna be epic especially since it's about TEE! Omg I've loved her since she was introduced by this wonderful author! Tee is such a smart ass and I love it. I probably laughed this entire book, besides the amazing sex her and Saxon had, of course. But she's probably my favorite so far between all the ladies (sorry). Now for Saxon..

She's crazy, confident, always speaks her mind, and always inappropriate... sounds like my new best friend. lol

First up, I just want to state that I have yet found a Chantal Fernando book that I didn't absolutely adore - and Saxon is no different.
The concept of trusting a man that cheated on your best friend was a new one for me to read - and the way Chantal handled it - you really felt for him and wanted him to get his girl and his HEA!

Straight of the bat, the characters just grab you - and the development of their relationship just keeps you glued to the pages. I loved that it was so much work for the
