A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.
Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.
But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too.
I grabbed this book for free last year while I was browsing on the iBooks store because, let’s face it, nice tattoo colours! And a couture wedding dress designer & a stuntman? Now, that is a couple I still had to come across to and yes, it sounds quite interesting!
For sure, Lexi and Jax have a great chemistry and their engaging is not just entertaining, but HOT! Once those two start flirting by texting, everything becomes sextacularly compelling . . . Indeed, their texting was my favourite part, but there are also plenty of steamy scenes that have you all dreamy—perhaps even a bit drooling—and that are a real page turner. Nevertheless, I found myself stopping a few times during the second part of the book because I got annoyed with the whole angst. I might understand a few of the characters’ worries, but to be honest they felt forced—and repetitive—and the end didn’t particularly surprise me.
Despite some issues, it was a nice, spicy escape with potential and some pleasurable sighing. If you are in the mood for something like that, this novel could be the one for you.
