One hundred grand to babysit bad boy Logan "Phoenix" Taylor on a paradise island—seriously, how bad could he be?
Frankly, it didn't matter. Not when it would make my dreams of going to nursing school possible. I wasn't even expected to talk to him, just hang out in a luxurious villa on a private beach and study. Simple, right?
But I hadn't counted on Logan being so deliciously bad that he was oh so good. And when the temperature cranked to boiling point, he knew just how to satisfy the deepest, darkest part of my soul and give my body exactly what it needed. Amongst the sand and waves, we transported each other to an exquisite world of pleasure where only we existed, only we mattered.
But the heady mix of emotions and lust couldn't keep things from spiraling out of control back in reality, where I had to keep the secret that I'd been hired to entertain him…even if it shattered my delicate heart. Even if it cost my destiny.

My mother always told me that no lie is a "good" lie...not even a little white lie because they always come back to bite you on the butt!
Brooke wants nothing more than to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a nurse, but even without the added expense of nursing school, she is struggling just to pay her bills. When she is presented an opportunity that could make her dreams come true, how could she possibly pass that up? All she has to do is keep the bad boy of hockey company while she catches a few rays and studies for the nursing exam. That doesn't sound too bad, right? AND she gets paid a load of cash to do it...that's a no-brainer!
Brooke and "Bad Boy" Logan are just about as different as two people can be. She is luscious with soft curves and he is hard and cut angles. She is nurturing and he is destructive. She is unsure of herself and he is confident. She is eccentric and he operates in what most would consider a more "normal" fashion. Of course, wouldn't you know -- that is the perfect combination of ingredients for a passionate affair, IF the lie that Logan doesn't even know exists doesn't tear them apart.
I loved the chemistry between Brooke and Logan. His commanding presence and dominance was expected, but the kind and gentle side he shares with Brooke was very sexy and an oh-so pleasant surprise. It made my heart pound from passion and anxiety. Then it calmed me with the sweet tenderness and loving adoration between Brooke and Logan.
If you are looking for a book that's guaranteed to evoke a variety of emotions from start to finish, this would be a great choice!
