The harder they play . . . the harder they fall.

After publicly self-destructing over a heartbreak a year ago, bestselling romance writer Piper James is now making nice with her publisher by agreeing to teach Hollywood's favorite action star how to act like he's in love. Only playboy Mick Blackwell has no clue what love looks like.

When a seductive heat ignites between Piper and Mick, she jumps at the chance for a bit of fun between the sheets, but with two stipulations: she's kept out of the public eye and things end when she returns to New York. Only Mick keeps changing the rules on her. Tempted by America's favorite bad boy, Piper is wondering how far she's willing to bend...


Immediately upon finishing this story, I was overwhelmed with a giant smile and an immense need to immediately write my review.  This story was completely adorable with enough steam to add spice.  Piper and Mick are great characters that are easy to love.  Mick can be completely arrogant, but has his own hidden sweet side.  Piper is feisty, but scorned from her past.  I actually read this book while I had the flu, and I have to admit, I tried reading several books while I was sick, but this was the only one that could keep my attention!  Perhaps I just have a strong affinity towards secret budding romances.  I swear, there were multiple times that I swooned.

One thing that I really liked was the fact that Mick is multiracial.  It’s not a common occurrence (at least in my experience) to have a mixed race relationship.  I felt like this was a very bold move that deserves some praise!  The added issues that Mick had due to his race while he was starting his career really added extra depth into his character.  Personally, I feel it’s sad that this stood out for me, because it should be more common, but… I’d rather not start a rant. ;)

The added mystery of the story really brought it all together.  Although I felt it was a bit obvious who the culprit was, the extra drama made this story exceptional.  The wonderful authors at Entangled Publishing have done it again!  Yet another amazing book!
