Mary Dennison has one great big weak spot—family—so, when her eighteen-year-old cousin Matthew hacks Rutledge Security Company on a dare and gets caught, of course she’s going to “untangle” him and get him safely away. Though it’s Dominic Rutledge’s email to his brothers that has her heading across the state, to ask him during her seduction of him if they are truly werewolves. It’s an answer she simply has to know.
Tired of the same old boring sex games that hold no meaning for him, Dominic finds the hacking of the company’s computers intriguing in that he ‘s pretty certain it’s not a male at fault. What he finds is a feisty, mind-of-her-own redhead intent on seducing him to get answers. Now the Mating Game has a brand new meaning and he plans to teach Mary exactly what it is.
This gives the phrase Battle of the Sexes a whole new meaning. Two strong-minded, intelligent people trying to one-up each other makes for a fun-filled read full of hijinks that made me smile and even laugh aloud. The explicitly erotic sex is enough to make you sigh jealously while the characters become more dimensional. This is an entertaining series.
