Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That's why I'm quite a catch-- good, hard, loaded, and wait for it...I'm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.

I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn't work out.

And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I'm ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What's a few thousand miles when love's involved? But there's a hitch in my plans -- she just hired my adventure tour company. If there's one thing I'm committed to, it's running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?

Don't screw your customers.
But what's a guy to do when she's so hard to resist? How hard can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I'm about to find out, and I have a feeling I'm going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get very hard in the woods.

5 purrrrfect stars for HARD WOOD!

Patrick Milligan is a total catch. He's an all-around good guy, business owner, sexy as hell and ready to settle down. Unfortunately, the woman he wants to wake up to every morning lives on the left coast, only visiting NYC occasionally. Patrick is sure that his lust for his BFF's sister, Mia Summers, will dissipate with time, but it seems that his infatuation with her is only increasing with every trip home. But Mia's poker face is world class, and Patrick can't tell if she feels the same about him. It's time to man up and show her just how much she needs his hard wood!

I bow down to Ms. Blakely's most fabulous writing style! HARD WOOD was just as awesome as all of her other books in the Big Rock series with AMAZING titles (Big Rock, Mister O, Well Hung, Full Package, Joy Ride). I am obsessed with just about everything that this author puts out, her sense of humor and drool-worthy sex scenes have me clambering for anything she puts out! So, there's so much I adore about HARD WOOD...character development, yummy sexy time and grin-inducing chuckles, not to mention the chemistry between Patrick and Mia is explosive! But, the best part about this book, for me, was the addition of "Conversations with the Cat" featuring Patrick's outdoor loving feline Zeus. Those chapters killed me...as a pussy owner myself, I could totally picture these furry monologues happening. I happily and wholeheartedly recommend anything that you can get your hands on by Ms. Blakely!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
