Release Date: August 19th 2014
Genre: Erotic Romance
The Boyfriend Bookmark: ★★★★
Danielle Ward hasn’t had sex in six years. Sure, she’s been on dates. She even has a boyfriend, but it seems something is always getting in the way when it comes to doing the deed.
After her boyfriend finally loses his patience and leaves her to drown her sorrows, her best friend Georgia comes up with a plan that becomes more and more brilliant with each shot of tequila.
Book a non-refundable solo trip to an adults-only resort with the intention of getting laid.
The beach is picturesque, her room is luxurious, the alcohol is included … and Danielle can’t wait to get the hell out of there the second she checks in. That is, until an uninvited kiss from drunken hotel guest and Hollywood hottie Evan Weston. Once Evan discovers the reason for Danielle’s vacation, he won’t let up in his pursuit to be the one to solve her problem.
Caught between her desire for a fresh start and the preposterous idea of having a fling with her celebrity crush, Danielle decides it’s time to throw caution to the wind and her panties to the floor.
But it’s never just sex, is it? And Evan Weston isn’t just any man. He isn’t just a movie star.
Evan Weston is Danielle’s last resort.
Sitting up, I raked a hand through my hair, which had dried into a mess of bedhead waves. The knocking continued and my heart pulsed with excitement knowing deep down it must be Evan. Bouncing over to the door, I looked through the peephole, flinging the door open a little too eagerly when I saw him. Evan’s eyes widened when he saw me and then a wicked grin curled on those lips I pined for.
“I fell asleep,” I said pitifully.
His eyes were gleaming and without saying anything he gave me a long, dragged out once-over. I glanced down at myself and remembered I’d put on the red satin babydoll nightgown to soothe my skin. Seeing the fire that played behind his eyes as he took me in made the fine hairs on my neck stand at attention. He stepped into me just as he had when he came to kiss me solely because he’d wanted a kiss from me. I backed into the room, my teeth sinking into my bottom lip as I watched the hunger grow in his stare.
Evan was still smiling devilishly when he stepped into my space, making me step back. He was leading us in a dance that moved me straight to the bed where he’d already ravaged me time and again. When my calves hit the edge of the bed, I sank down to sit on the rumpled comforter.
“What are we celebrating?” I breathed.
He tugged his shirt over his head and tossed it near the window. I scanned his firm chest and stomach, sun-kissed and flexing with every breath. My eyes grazed the small script tattoo over his heart, but as he traced his finger from the center of my lips down to the meeting of my breasts, I lost interest in his secret for the night. His finger hooked the slight V of the front of my lingerie, dragging it down before letting it pop back into place over my cleavage.
“That outfit,” he replied.
Danielle has been in a dry spell for quite some time now. Though it’s not because the opportunity hasn’t been there, but when it comes right down to it, she just can’t do it. This is the reason her boyfriend broke up with her and now she finds herself in this crazy resort planning to hibernate through this vacation. How did she end up in a resort like this? I think the answer is simple… alcohol. Yup… snap decisions while drinking are rarely a great idea. In this case it was just down right crazy. But she was determined to make the most of this ridiculously expensive journey to get past her issue.
What she doesn’t expect is the incredibly hot and totally swoonworthy actor was going to be looking at her! One smart ass comment and he kissed her. Two and oh my goodness! But Evan wasn’t looking for what this resort had to offer either. He was looking for the end. He knew this would be his last trip and he honestly had no idea what brought him here one final time, except for the realization that it was time to stop being such a player and start looking at the long term. But when he saw Danielle for the first time, there was something there that he wasn’t expecting.
She had so many bottled up issues about sex, but with Evan everything just felt like it should. A little vacation she was sure wasn’t sure was going to fix her needs, but she was hoping it would at least help. She had hope. But what she didn’t have was desire until the moment they locked lips for the first time.
But could there be more? What happened if they continued on after the vacation ended? Could that even be possible? He’s an actor. He has glamor all around him. She is anything but glamorous, but there is something there and they both feel it deep inside.
I really enjoyed this book until the very end… and that is when I knew that Kate Roth had me suckered into a whole new series and I know I won’t be content with just one, I need to know what happens in the next book. This is a great book and I desperately want to know what the next book in the series has in store!
