When he wins a sexy bet, billionaire Linc Blair can’t wait to get Lauren Neill naked. He’s never gone for her type in the past, and he’s pretty certain it has more to do with her buttoned-up hotness than the nagging sense that something is missing from his life. But when he gets a glimpse of the vulnerable woman beneath the conservative, yet oh-so-sexy clothes, it’s a game changer.
Lauren can’t believe she’s spending a few days with one of sexiest, and most annoying men she’s ever met. But she can’t deny the chemistry between them, and for once in her life she’s letting down her guard so she can explore a different side of herself. The side only Linc brings out in her.
Taking it slow, he unleashes her sexuality and it quickly occurs to him that what started out as a bet for him has become something more. With their weekend nearly over, and her ex showing interest in this new confident version of Lauren, Linc will have to risk it all if he wants to win the game of love.
Definitely hot and steamy–lots of potential here–but everything happened just a little *too* fast to be completely believable; especially given the ending. This is one book that definitely could have been expanded into more–more time passing from start to finish, the hero and heroine spending more time together, and I needed a bit more convincing that Linc was really pining after Lauren for all that time prior to the book’s start. I believe that he’d come to her rescue in front of her ex, sure; a weekend of wild and crazy sex at his beachfront hideaway? Why not? But (view spoiler)[an engagement ring a week later, when they haven’t spoken in five days? Pushing. It. (hide spoiler)]
So…a fairly fun, definitely fantasy-inspired read this is. If you’re looking for a fairy tale-type romance with lots of sex, you’ve got it here. Just don’t think too much about the details.
