What happens when two control freaks meet their match?

Rory Doyle likes to be in control: in control of his career, in control of his home, and in control of his relationships. The one thing he can’t control is his reaction to real estate agent Ashley Richards, a feisty ex-pageant queen.
Ashley Richards is a woman with a plan; always has been, always will be. She’s got her s

4 A Serious Winner In My Book Stars
* * * *

In February of this year, I read a book which had the insane idea of people over the age of 35 could actually have interest in love, sex and careers. They could be sexy and in love...and the men could be swoon worthy, too. It was a unique idea, I know... and it warmed my heart as I am very far from 35!
A Bad Bit Nice was the book and I thoroughly feel hard for all of the grown up characters in also didn't

I purchased this book.

GAH!!! When I finished Em and Mick’s book I was obsessed to see the secret relationship of Rory and Audrey. I mean those two are busting with sexual tension in the first book so actually seeing their side of the story was AWESOME!!

I am going to say Lust is the best word to describe the two of them whe

If you’ve not read the first book in this series, I highly recommend that you do. 1 – because it’s good and 2 – because that book has many of the back stories for what transpires in this book. I was really looking forward to this story after reading Em and Mick’s story and their requisite best friends Ashley and Rory.

Ashley Richards is in her early to mid-forties and a realtor. She’s a good realtor and has sacrificed much of her personal life to be one. She used to go out with boys in their 20s
This is real raunchy fun. We have a mature heroine and a mature hero who have been burnt before in the relationship stakes. They are not ready to settle down nor to have a committed relationship.

They meet and have a light relationship which is mostly hook-ups and which develops slowly but neither is willing to admit that their emotions are changing and their ideas of what a relationship could be are also changing.

A light writing style that moves the story on so it is easy to read and keeps the i

I read this on an airplane flight today and whoo, at certain points I was quite glad indeed that the stranger sitting next to me was asleep and not reading over my shoulder . Hot and satisfying.

Josie Kerr continues to impress. Her characters are real people with real jobs and problems and you want see them together and happy. The sex scenes are hot, maybe too hot to read on the bus as I was doing. I look forward to more books from Ms. Kerr.

Rory and Ashley have been sneaking around for quite some time. They both keep telling themselves that they are serious about relationships.
Rory is busy with work as so is Ashley. She is trying to move up in the real estate business she works at. They have brought in her ex and he got the job she has been striving for. As usual, she does all the work and he sits back and collects the money.
When things with her and Rory turn serious, she gets scared and runs.
After the accident and the news, her

Love the Irish!

Can be a stand alone. But, I recommend that you read the first book, then this one. Ashley is Em's best friend.Rory (Irish) is Mick's best friend. They all meet the same night. Ashley and Rory can't stay away from each other. Neither really wants to settle down. Their story is a bit rocky. Love the family that is formed. Get your copy and start reading.... Pam James

The Best Ever is the second in the Second Chance Neighbors series. While you do get a little more of Em and Mick's story, this book primarily follows hottie Irish businessman, Rory, and the spunky, smart Southern real estate agent, Ashley.

Neither Rory nor Ashley do relationships. It's too complicated. But they have done other things and those certain things keep them drawn to one another. They form a companionship of sorts that they think they are keeping secret from their best friends.
