Life Coach Anastasia Bradley is Harley's landlord. They have met in passing several times, but after an unexpected encounter, he is seeing her in a new light. She is reluctant to get involved with him because his womanizing ways are legendary. Women flock to him, and she is determined not to be one of them.
When an attempt is made on Stasia's life, Harley makes it his mission to keep her safe. While he refuses her help to gain focus and get his life in order, she inadvertently has an effect on him.
I liked this book - well written! Harley is all alpha male, strong and sexy. Stasia is also strong, focused, and unpredictable. I really like that she doesn't fall at his feet, and remains her own person. That is sometimes difficult to do when surrounded by such a commanding presence like Harley. I also am glad that Barber, Dean, Eve, and the gang were involved in the story. It wouldn't be the same without them.
In a nut shell... Stasia was fairly annoying, and the resolution of her stalker situation was quick, pat and totally out of left field. Harley's bondage fetish wasn't overdone (thank goodness), but his total about-face from male ho to one-woman-man was too abrupt. I was most disappointed by the secondary plot with Barber - he was one of my favorite characters from 'Simon Says', definitely excellent trashy romance novel hero material. In this book, he starts out sleeping around as much as humanly possible (he and Harley could compete in a sluttiest man contest), whines a little bit about losing Dakota to Simon, then meets Jasmine and promptly forgets both the male slut contest and Dakota. Jasmine wasn't much of a character; if she'd had more page space I probably would have liked her. I haven't read 'Causing Havoc' so I can't say how that compares, but this book was definitely not a good follow-up to 'Simon Says'.
As for Harley Handleman being a bit unpleasant or the stories being told from the male perspective, I can go with that fine. This whole series is basically about the SBC and the world of fighters. I actually find that aspect of the books intriguing even if I don't always find the things they say or do agreeable. And eventually they do become one woman men. At least to the end of the book.
It was nice seeing all the characters from previous books and catching up with how they're doing. I really do love Ms. Foster's writing. She can do a love scene like nobody's business. I just wish it hadn't taken quite so long for Harley and Stasia to get together.Read more ›
