Eric’s life is suddenly in turmoil. Truths he thought he knew turn out to be nothing more than lies. Coupled with the depths of the feelings he was starting to experience for Mia, and all that chaos sent him running. Not the most honorable thing to do, but logical given his emotional state. Every jock Mia’s given a chance to has turned out to be a jerk, and Eric’s just proven himself to be another one of their number. But what happens when he comes back with a new attitude and is determined to ...more

Another Cartwright sister gets her HEA with a bad boy. Mia slept with Eric but then didn't hear from him again. So of course there is tension when she's forced to work with him for a charity auction to raise funds for Newport Beach. He uses all his charm to try and get back into her good graces. But she still sees him a "player". Is that who he truly is? Or is there more to him, and the reason why he didn't contact her after they slept together?

It's obvious there is a pull between these two

This is book three in this series and I absolutely love everything about it. This book is about Mia and Eric. I honestly think so far book three is by far my favorite although book one and two are very close in the running for that spot! The chemistry between these two is off the charts hot! From the moment I picked up this book I could not put it down. I would highly recommend not only this book but the whole series. I cannot wait to see what happens in book four.

Eric and Mia will intrigue you in this story. Eric and Mia had one night of intimacy and he up and left leaving Mia with bad feelings especially to her ego. It has been over a year and she has moved on. She should have paid attention to why she hated athletes in the first place but she thought Eric was different. Eric was in a bad place in his life at the time he was with Mia and instead of admitting to it, he blew her off. Now he has come to his senses but is it too late to salvage a ...more

Love it!

Eric's family drama was off the charts. I'm glad his mother finally made an unselfish decision. Her son had her covered. He wasn't going to let her suffer alone. As for Mia, she was still reeling over Eric's mistreatment of their last interaction. She's afraid to give her heart to him. She wanted The control in their relationship but at what cost. The ending was awesome.

I love Khardine Gray and I liked this book; it just wasn't her usual fare. Mia always had to feel like she was in control but finally, she realized she was really just a coward. That was why she had trouble with true love; cowards won't face the risks involved with love. But Eric, 'the Dog,'kept after her, proving himself over and over. In true Gray style, mia woke up for a HEA ending. I volunteered this review from an ARC.

Khardine Gray is a pretty consistent author and this book is no exception. Eric and Mia had a one and done. She was furious because of all the bad relationships she's had with athletes in the past. He wanted more, but family drama interfered. Now, he's back and want Mia. How they build a relationship, overcome trust issues, and more forward to their HEA makes for a sexy, fun, fast paced read.
I received a copy from Bad Boy Update and this is my honest review.

I thought this book had a good storyline but I was not a fan of either of the lead characters. There was plenty of tension and emotional turmoil as this couple's story unfolds, their relationship evolves and they work through the baggage that each has. Of my own accord I am posting a candid review.

Great read

I love this book. It’s cute and love how Eric court her. He’s so sweet and I really wanted Mia to actually work hard for Eric at the end but oh well. I can’t wait to read at Vanessa.

Mia knows what she wants but does not listen to her heart on what it wants and it is sad. Eric knows what he wants and goes after it hard core, but throws it away when something traumatic happens to him.

Another great addition to this series. It's nice to see Mia and Eric come to terms with their feelings for each other. Will Vanessa be the next book in the series?? The book is well written and all of the characters are always enjoyable.
