Smith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him. Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way. Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.
Star Rating: 4 stars
Entertaining at best.
I found this book to be rushed in a way...there was so build up then the ever so needed crash and inevitable end and then the sweep you of your feet swoon moment that came after.
It fell flat there.
Overall I enjoyed Evie and Smith on a playful front but that was it and although it was a good book I expected more from this story, a better back story and a more in depth look at Smith and what happens with him but also with Evie and Cullen.
Kendall has a way about her writing that regardless of the topic of the book it will get you hooked until the very last word. I hope others can get more from the story and enjoy it more than I did because I know I am a picky reader but I like what I like and expect certain things this is just under that line.
Overall a quick fun fast paced read.
