>Meeting Jett was like bad luck. Dangerous. Unpredictable. And better avoided. In his game, the stakes are high. But are they worth the risk?
Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, finds forgetting is hard, but forgiving is harder. When the man she trusted, betrayed her, the only way to forget is to move on. Brooke is determined to start a new life, until she meets him again: the green-eyed, sexy as sin, six foot two sex god. The man who played dirty. The man who played her.
Sexy, rich, and arrogant Jett Mayfield knows he has made mistakes. He could have any other woman, and yet it’s Brooke he wants. When second chances collide with secrets and Brooke is threatened by the past, Jett is determined to protect her. She accepts his help unwillingly because she needs him but she wants to play his game on her own terms. And she has no intention to forgive or let him back into her bed. When the man she is supposed to hate is the one she should trust, will he conquer her… or lose her forever?
A woman who can’t forgive.
A man who has made mistakes.
Two lives that are about to cross again and more secrets laid bare.

Title & Cover: Sexy, sexy cover. I love the black-white to color contrast! And I feel like the title is both romantic and naughty, so pretty much like Brooke and Jett. 😉
Characters: Both Brooke and Jett where very interesting characters. They had their strengths and faults, their career determination, and I was unsure if I should say "of course they're compatible" or "how the heck are they even working out?" because of who and how they were. I don't think you find that very often, so I'm giving bonus points. And Jett was really, really cute. He was the hottest ever without having to play the macho card at all times.
Plot: It started out rather plain, "simply" encountering your old hate-crush again, and the two being attracked once again. One being the boss, the other the new secretary. Not too uncommon, right? However, I found it very interesting how it developed from there. Of course there were the cliches like her breaking down and letting him have her again, but that's kinda the point, too. Then, that ending? Jeez, talk about cliffhanger that leaves you fuming and aching and wanting more.
Smut: Rather explicit, but kinda not my type. It definitvely didn't leave me swooning or all hot and bothered.
