There’s a hot new hire.

Too bad she’s Donavan’s ex.

Oh, and there’s one other problem—they hate each other.

The last thing he expected to see when he walked into the office was Paisley Williams.

She was the only person to graduate ahead of him at Columbia. The one woman who could give it back better than he could dish it out.

She was also the biggest regret of his life. What he

ARC received for an honest review

I have really enjoyed the Cocky Suits series, however this is the one I have been wanting since the start.

And Howell and Wolf have not disappointed.

In fact, this is my favourite book in the series. Paisley and Donovan's second chance at love is one full of heartache, hurt, and sexual tension through the roof.

Donovan - man, I love this guy. Even when I hate the guy for being an arrogant a-hole. And boy, the last 10% of this story had my emotions alllll over the pl

We're back in Chicago with 'The Hunter Group' and the last of the four Collins brothers, Donovan.

We've met Donovan before as the surly, antagonistic and confrontational brother and I've got to say, that some of those feelings are entirely justified.

Even if you haven't met Donovan before and this is your first foray into the Chicago Suits series, it can be fully enjoyed as a standalone, but you'll definitely want to go back and read the others!

The story of Donavan and Paisley is as hot as you'd

I've got to say that Donavan Collins is my favorite Collins brother. His and Paisley's story had it all, anger, passion, forgiveness and some of the best book sex ever! Slaone and Alex are a great team and together they write a helluva story! Keep those stories coming!! ...more

this is the story of the youngest of the fearsome four Collins brothers - Donavan Collins - and he's the grumpiest one of them all...and now, we see why he is the way he is...

he might be the ruthless criminal law lawyer and he might slay the toughest courtroom opponents BUT he, in fact carries a deep shadow of long time festering insecurity and the time is ticking and all that pent up emotion will burst...

and especially now that his college love has come to work with the Hunter group - P

If you love the Collins brothers you will fall in love with Donavan...sure he can be jerk sometimes...ok maybe most times, but he is sexy and he has a great heart. He is super when Paisley walks back into his life he gets transported back in time...back when he had to settle for runner up.
Paisley is a strong willed, sexy as sin girl trying to make it in a mans world. She also happens to be the one person who crushed Donavan's dream of being number one. They have a complicated pa

I love a good redemption speech and Mr. Collins nails it every time. Just as the previous Collins members, Donovan’s story starts with a bang from the very first sentence. Paisley’s makes a great adversary against this arrogant playboy and doesn’t come up short. Her wit and sharp tongue gave me life. I loved that she matched him toe to toe in every aspect. The matched stubbornness, ruthlessness, and explosive emotions made for a great book. Their chemistry perfectly depicted through steamy AF im

I’ve been a fan of this series since the beginning! Alex Wolf and Sloane Howell make an incredible writing team. I’ve read them both separately from each other and I gotta say, I think when they write together the stories are stronger. I’m hoping they continue to build on this world they have created with the Collins brothers or branch out into something else, I’m not pick!

Wow, what a story. These books are all amazing and I cannot get enough. Donovan, I'm not sure what to say about him, he will have you going crazy with all of his issues. I felt sorry for him in a few places but I still think he's pretty arrogant.
I highly recommend these books, you will love them.

The Collins brothers are back again, and this time it's Donavan's story. He's always seemed so broody throughout, and now we get to see why. This is definitely one of my faves in this series.

I'm going to start by saying, you might need to have tissues handy, because this one has all the feels. One particular scene will bring tears to your eyes, and you don't even see it coming.

Donavan and Paisley are both as stubborn and ruthless as each other, so when they are together, there are always firewor

This is the fourth book in this incredible series and can be read as a standalone but you get a better understanding of everyone's dynamics if you read the other books. Plus trust me you will LOVE those other Sexy brothers!

Another Collins brother that you will surely fall in love with once you get past his arrogance boastfulness bumptious behavior. Donavan is the youngest of the brothers and has always felt like he needed to compete even harder be

Arrogant Playboy? How about hot, dirty, powerful dominant attorney that is just lost in the world?  Arrogant Playboy by Sloane Howell and Alex Wolf is not a short story but quite a lengthy book but that is so necessary to get the complete picture of the storyline and characters.  Donovan is a lovable character but at the same time you just want to smack him and tell him to grow up.   With the amount of Collins brothers, it is a little hard to keep track of them and the women in their lives but a ...more

These two have done it again this series gets better and better with each book. They do not disappoint in their books at all.

Donovan's story is a second chance romance but not with a bit of arrogance that comes with him. This story has it all the heartache sexual tension and a connection that Donovan and Paisley can't deny. Their chemistry is off the charts and they balance each other even if they don't want it to happen the connection is to strong.

Donovan is a man you will love and hate all i

Wow I think Sloane and Alex kept the best Collins brother until last!
I've loved each and every one of these guys but just knew that Donavans story would be one worth waiting on.. his attitude and grumpiness throughout the other books have made me think he was hiding something or had some serious issues and this story did not disappoint one bit.
I can say its jammed full of love hate heartbreak happiness and full on emotions galore.

This is the first book in this series that I have read. That being said, as soon as I leave this review I will be going back to read the others! I absolutely loved how much Donavan go through to make him the man he becomes. Paisley is just what was needed to help him discover himself and vice versa. This book was simply brilliant and deserves more than 5 stars!

Can we see what makes him tick?

On my Donavan you big misunderstood grouch. In book 4 in the Cocky Suits Chicago series we get to see what makes the baby of the family who he is. Let’s say this I knew I was going to like him but is what I didn’t know was how much. Did I want to strangle him at times absolutely did I want to punch Decker even more definitely.

Arrogant playboy, hmm not sure if that’s how I would describe baby boy Donovan.. The Collins men are all alpha mans and each with a quality that is beyond what most men have these days.

I suppose Donovan needed to be arrogant when it comes to his brothers, but he is a unique man and mostly with a loveable heart that only Paisley has a hold of. After seven years apart, the first time they see each other, feels that were long gone just leaps from out of nowhere and

Donavan is the last Collins brother in the Cocky Suits/Chicago Series. As the saying goes, THEY SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST!

Donavan always seemed to be brooding over something.  Never Mr. Nice Guy.  Work, make money, rinse and repeat. But when his past reappears and gives him shite over their college days, well that apparently sends him over the edge. That and the fact that she, Paisley, is the one he let get away. But...she’s back, only he doesn’t know just how close she is.

Such an amazing story. Two people who had a relationship with a really strong bond in years past. The separation caused them to have a shield around their hearts. After years of being away, Paisley finds herself back in town to help take care of her dad and grandparents. Donavan is part owner of the law practice Paisley wants to get a job at while she's back. But she has worked for a rival company. Donavan is also dealing with some personal family issues. Yo

Oh my Donovan!!! Can we say cocky with a capital C. All that anger and pent up aggression made him the naughtiest Collins brother to date.

I loved Paisley’s character so much. Her love for family and doing whatever she had to for them made her character so relatable and lovable.

I have to say I’m loving this series so much and I most definitely do not want it to end.

These books get better and better.
This book is about second chances/ enemy to lovers/office romance. It has it all. Romance, steam, swoon.
You will not be disappointed.
Paisley and Donavan are so great together. Strong female and sexy alpha. I loved getting to learn about Donavan. And why he was the way he was.

Don’t wait to read these books :). They are great. Start at the beginning.

Arrogant Playboy by Alex Wolf and Sloane Howell is the definition of perfect office romance. Sexual and emotional tension that needs to be cut with a diamond knife. Incredibly smart and sharp writing that kept the witty, steamy and romantic vibe till the very end. And amazing characters who will stay with me forever.

Donavan Collins and Paisley Williams have a long history going back to their law school days. They were soul mates. They were the "it" person for each other. But Donavan did somethin

I read this book as a standalone. But I plan to go back and read the other 3 books in the series.

Donovan is the youngest of the four Collins brothers. He has spent his life overshadowed by 3 larger than life characters Decker, Deacon and Dexter. He is the youngest, and constantly feels like he must prove himself. Mr. Cantankerous, aka Donovan Collins is absolutely the kind of guy you want to find in a book called Arrogant Playboy. His insecurity impacts his love life, when his perfectionist way

What can I say without spoilers? That’s what I always ask myself when trying to write a review. I want to rave on about *why* a book was so good, what really drew me to it.
Sometimes my reviews will say what I didn’t like so much, again, without spoilers.

Well in this case, I can tell you there was absolutely NOTHING I didn’t like. It was brilliant from start to finish.

Every book I think that brother is the best, but I think Donovan is the all around best, most arrogant Collins brother and I love it! Donovan had it all in law school. Top of his class, good friends and a woman he was in love with. Right at graduation it all went to hell and he left Paisley with a broken heart and his heart was permanently hardened. Seven years later he runs into her in NYC but refuses to be civil. He heads back to Chicago to kick some ass and take nor prisoners, until he see th ...more

I was really looking forward to finally have the youngest Collin brother, Donovan's story! He was always so surly, arrogant, and combative, but also so sweet and misunderstood. This is his second chance romance with his college love, Paisley. He left her after college without a word and brokenhearted. She was always sweet, loving and adored Donovan. Now she was a tough, stone-cold killer attorney. She is back in Chicago to take care of her family, and wanting a job with The Hunter Group. Donovan ...more
