Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

My Review

From the moment I met Jamie and Tori I was excited for this story. If you read Four Letter Word you could feel the chemistry these two had despite their love/hate relationship. I couldn’t wait to see what developed between them and see how their story unfolded. 

For those who don’t know their story here is some background info. Tori is a waitress at a restaurant Jamie frequents. Jamie is professional surfer and super cocky. Of course Jamie comes on super strong when he first meets Tori, she is dating someone and immediately appalled by his behavior. This begins our love/hate relationship because Jamie is relentless. Now we don’t see a lot of this, the story is told in the present and you can see how things are currently between them. 

After months of refusal, Jamie and Tori finally give in and hookup, but things are not so easy from here. Tori is convinced Jamie is a player and isn’t looking for more and Jamie has his work cut out for him. I really liked the chemistry and the banter between these two, but once they were together I needed more. Their relationship was super physical, which of course is hot, but I just desired to see their connection more. I wanted to feel their love for each other when reading. 

Also, I was very taken back by Jamie’s vocabulary, he didn’t feel like a surfer to me. However, I can overcome that as I am reading fiction and I am a very forgiving reader when it comes to these things. More than that I was taken back by how similar he sounded to another author’s characters. Normally this isn't something I would notice, but this particular author has a very strong voice for her alpha men. Unfortunately that provided a distraction and was a little frustrating. 

Regardless, I did enjoy Jamie and Tori’s story and if you are looking for a sexy read with fun chemistry this is your book and I think you will enjoy it. I just wanted more, but that’s me and everyone is different.
