About the Author
Christina and Lauren are a writing duo who have been swooning over romance novels for as long as they can remember. Separated by the pesky state of Nevada, these co-author besties speak several times a day, agree that Ruby Pumps is the best nail polish color ever and would, if given the choice, spend all day staring at the ocean from the San Clemente pier.

Max has taken the guys to Vegas to celebrate Bennett's bachelor party, but Sara and Chloe are scheming and have found some ways to surprise the guys. This book takes place over one crazy night where Bennett and Max are chasing the girls all over Vegas, and trying to keep Henry and Will out of the loop on what is going on.
I really enjoyed getting to read this book in the guy's points of view only, and it was quite hilarious. When a way to distract Will goes horribly wrong, his payback to Bennett and Max is priceless. I really can't wait to dive into Will's book after getting to know him even more in this one.
This book is a very quick read, but an amazing add on to the series. The guys are quite hilarious, and the girls.. I love Chloe and Sara! They knew exactly what they were doing, and it was hilarious to watch the guys stumble over themselves to get to them.
This book definitely has some really hot scenes (like all other books in this series) but getting to see more of the guys in their element was by far the most enjoyable part of this book.
I don't even know what to say about this book that hasn't already been said. Was it hot? Uh...duh?
This book was insanity-inducing!
I know there's people that complain about how much Bennett is mean to her at first, and how much Chloe is meant to him as well... I find it understandable. When faced with an attraction that seems unrequited, and the other person is being less than nice to you, you usually act the same way back. And vice versa.
I for one think it set up a hot, tense chemistry. The whole time I'm reading the beginning, know the first love scene is coming soon, and I'm like uh huh uh huh.
And then the love scene happened. And I had read it before, many times, but it had been a while. I must have forgotten some details about how hot it was. Because I'm reading. And suddenly, I'm dying.
And Bennett, is, as has now been stated thousands of time, one hot piece of aggressive, animalistic, dominant male.
As a matter of fact, I will accept no arguments on the matter. None.
I have to admit, that at 24% in, all the panty ripping had me confused, kinda disturbed, and slightly annoyed because it's unrealistic that any woman's skin can handle that much abuse.
At one point you're left wondering just how these two are going to get their act together and actually work out some kind of HEA.
Of course, before we even get to that part, the dressing room love scene takes place.
Oh mother of everything that's holy, the dressing room LOVE SCENE.
I do have to admit, there were moments where Chloe had me ready to kill her. When he opened her account at La Perla?
Then they have explosive sex in their car...and for some reason that's still not clear to me, she kicks him out of her car right after.
Mind you, I'm only 37% in at this point, and although everyone says that Bennett is the one with issues, his justifications and thought processes were making more sense to me at this point than Chloe's were.
Seriously, I was wondering if maybe she was PMSing for the majority of the book?
Just a question, don't kill me.
One of the hottest things I've ever witness:
Bennett throwing out the flowers that effing Joel Cignoli sent Chloe.
Say whatever you want, it was hot!
I guess possessive, nearly psychotic men make Nyddi happy.
I WANT A BENNETT!!!!!
I will tell you this, the way Chloe acted in the end? I can understand being mad at the whole "he played down your involvement scenario". Hell, I'd give him hell for ever for that one.
But quitting your job right when your presentation is due, knowing so much hinges on you pulling that off so that your school gives you epic referrals and the rest of your career is pretty much set from that point forward?
Once more, overreaction.
Chloe's neurotic behavior in the end is the only reason this book didn't get 5 stars from me. The only one.
Bennett, however, was adorable and just delish in how he eventually reacted and tried to make it up to her. He not only saved her, in my opinion, but he proved right there how much he loved her.
And it killed me.
Ben is a egomaniac and he's diffidently not afraid to admit it. He's cocky, hot headed, sexy as hell- all wrapped up in one, Beautiful Bastard package! He really does grown a lot in the book all the way to the very end and for this I will be forever grateful. The POV also switches from time to time. I LOVED this and they didn't kill him by making him all weenie either. He was written perfectly.
Chloe is the Beautiful B* or Bombshell as I like to call her. She's the perfect small dynamite package that bursts like the sky on the Fourth of July. I loved her analogies, inner monologue and all around bad*ssness. She is one tough cookie that can give it as good as she gets it. AWESOME heroine! She too, as a whole develops throughout the entire book. I'm looking forward to reading into the next few books.
Their back and fourth all out sexcapades had me in a daze. I didn't know who was going or coming and I mean what that implies. It was relentless with the ups and downs on figuring out their feelings towards one another. I loved this because I'd never read a book with so much passion and hate that it sets you ablaze. Just crazy good old fashion between the lines love. I really did enjoy it and I would recommend to anyone who likes sizzling juicy read that's not so normal. After all, vanilla is pretty plain right?
