A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
Sometimes it’s good to be bad…
When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.
Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.
As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.
Skyler and Gage meet at his club Sin. She’s on a horrible date and has been eyeing Gage all night. They meet in the alley behind his club and both are all over each other until Gage stops it and says Skyler will regret sleeping with him. Skyler is a good girl who is sick of being one. She sees Gage again and convinces him to have a sex only no strings relationship. But will their loving being together and not just in bed lead to something more?
I loved both Skyler and Gage. I can understand Skyler wanting to let lose and Gage being the good guy and stopping it so she doesn’t regret anything. He knows she isn’t that kinda girl. Skyler hasn’t really had many relationships and the ones she has had have been with good safe boring guys who are nothing like Gage. Gage thinks he is too messed up for a relationship and Skyler is too good for him. Sklyer’s positive cheery nature is just what Gage who is dark and broody needs. Gage has a dark past and what he went through with both his dad and brother is heartbreaking. Skyler isn’t without hurt in her past either but nothing as dark as Gage. I loved how Skyler didn’t push Gage to open up but let him open up about himself without pressure. Don’t let the horrible cover stop you from reading this book as it almost stopped me. The sex is wonderfully hot and I just loved Gage’s dirty talk and wish their was more of it. If you love a broody bad boy who is really sweet when he wants to be and a strong and independent heroine this is the book for you.
