Can Sara move pass the hurt of a cheating ex to be with a known playboy without getting her heart broken again? apparently she can as they participate on a no-string-attached, wild, picture taking sex filled with passion and a thank you upon completion.

I love both of these books however I was not that impressed with Beautiful Bastard as the writing at times was frustrating. The sex was right up my alley of romance/erotica though. I’m not sure if Sara/Max did it more for me than Chloe/Ryan all i’ll say though is that a guy with an accent get s panties wet faster.
