If Bobby hadn’t gone missing, Laila Prescott wouldn’t be back on Paradise Island—or asking Matt to help her. Fearing Bobby’s been kidnapped or worse, she knew Matt was the best PI to hire because he wouldn’t give up. She simply hadn’t counted on his price or how willing she’d be to pay it. From the way her body responded to him, the past two years might not have come between them.
Matthew Hardin was the best person to find Laila’s brother, Bobby, but he wouldn’t be able to keep his mind on business with her around. That’s the reasoning he used to add that last part about sex however, whenever, to his fee. Besides, he knew he’d never be able to keep his hands off her. Laila might just have a couple surprises for Mr. Perpetually Ready, though.
I think this is a romp and a half with a bit of that “why buy the cow” thread woven throughout. The characters are both strong-willed and stubborn, yet unable to ignore each other, while the sex is wicked hot and inspired me to take notes. I think this would make a great beginning book to a series about unlikely pairs, as for me, there’s nothing better than watching opposites fight their way to love and romance.
