This was one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. Wait ... what? This wasn't supposed to be a romantic comedy type of book? So, how do you explain ...

1) Over-the-top bad boy H who broods and stares so much, I was picturing Carl Fredricksen from the movie Up. All busy eyebrows, head sticking out, glowering at our h with discontent. No cane / walker required.
2) An innocent h who's had sex only thrice in her life (gasp!) but who has the body of a goddess and is lusted after by not only our H, but his much-older uncle as well. Can we all say it ... Ewwwww!
3) The h (again) .... sooo annoying. Like, she acts like she's 12 sometimes, like oh my god, and makes such stupid rash decision, like can you believe it. But then she's supposedly some nerd in school who's studying to be a vet. Who's getting her "Bachelor's of Science" degree. Degree in what? No clue b/c the author just has this super-smart girl say she's getting a Bachelor's of Science degree and then going on to vet school. She's getting a BS in something alright ...
4) Somehow, our h has no bartending experience whatsoever, but is hired on sight at an exclusive gentlemen's club to ... yup, you guessed it ... be a bartender. Are the patrons at this fine establishment ordering only sodas and water? How the heck did she learn how to man a bar after just ONE NIGHT training with another bartender?
5) She earns tips ranging from $500-$700. Per night. Bartending. With no experience. And without taking off her clothes or providing extra "services" to men. Um, sure. I thought I was reading a New Adult genre novel, not Fantasy.
6) The H is either a jerk or a wuss.

The story was not bad. It had a lot of potential. I started it yesterday on the train ride home and finished it after dinner.

The h is studying for her bachelor’s degree. She eventually wants to go to grad school and become a vet. She is a farm girl. The H lives off his family’s wealth. He does not appear to do much except show up at his uncle’s club with a different woman every night.

The h applies for a bartender job at the club. When she and the H meet, they are instantly attracted to each other. I am okay with that except there was very little wooing on the H’s part. He is who he is, so girls fall for him all the time. They chase him. The h, for her part, held out the first few times, but eventually succumbs to the H’s advances.

I like that the H was uber possessive and unsure of the h’s feelings toward him, but there were moments when I thought he was flat out stupid. There was a scene at the club when they were on a date. The h was sitting on his lap and had to jump off him to avoid an embarrassing moment because she was feeling a reaction from between his legs. She runs to the restroom. The H thinks she has rejected him so he retaliates by fondling another woman when she leaves for the restrooms. She sees him in action when she returns. He wants her to witness the scene so she knows she is easily replaceable. He begs forgiveness when he learns the reason she hopped off his lap. The h forgives him and does not make him earn it. The H is really in his thirties?

Second stupid moment was when the h was voicing her concerns to the H one evening about possibly having to give up a spot with her desired grad school because the school was going through budget cuts with the work study program.The H thinks she is indirectly asking him to pay for grad school.

Harper is a college student excelling her way through undergrad so that she can get into a graduate program. She has several bills to pay and accepts a job at The Guardian as a bartender. The Guardian is one of several businesses owned by the Tarseta family and this is where she meets Liam, the youngest Italian Tarseta who comes in with a different woman each time. Even though The Guardian employs many attractive girls, Harper doesn't escape Liam's notice. Harper comes from a farm in Iowa and grew up with 2 older brothers so she isn't a girly drama kind of person. She knows how to stand up for herself and hold her ground without coming off weak or wishy washy. She's aware of the attraction and sparks between Liam and herself but keeps her distance because Liam isn't the sort of guy to have a serious girlfriend and Harper doesn't want to get her heart broken because Liam could do that to her. Even so, Liam keeps finding her and coming after her and eventually they don't deny their chemistry anymore. Liam is new to wanting a woman who isn't reciprocating so even though he is trying to gain her favor and attention, he still says and does really incredibly stupid guy things that piss Harper off and rightfully so. I loved the heat between them and all the chaos. They are definitely navigating in unchartered territory for both of them and yet it's fun to see how crazy they are for each other. I also liked seeing the transformation in Liam. He might be possessive and arrogant, but he's also caring and persistent with a mysterious past that unravels in the book. There are several things that surprised me about this story, mostly Liam and how he handles things in the second half of the book. Knowing more about his history, it makes a lot more sense about why Liam behaves the way he does and how he makes himself be the guy he wants to be once he finds something or someone he can't live without.
