Harlequin Blaze # 154 - October 2004
While waiting to see her father, Laurel whiles her time filling out a magazine quiz on "Who's your Hottie?". Ready to start living life on the wilder side, she answers the questions more provocatively than she normally would. Laurel's made a promise to herself never to date anyone from Wall Street or anyone who works for her father much to Theodore Macallister Tolliver III's dismay. "Mac" has never met Laurel, but from just those few moments he seen her walking toward the elevator, was enough to make him want to know her very well. He picks up the discarded quiz, and finds her answers challenging. Seems Laurel has a bad-boy-biker fantasy. With quiz in hand as his blueprint, all Mac has to do is be that bad-boy.
Ms. Anders always writes such great characters. I really liked both Laurel and Mac. Mac's not really the bad boy and is almost found out, esp. when his henna tattoos start to wash off while they're in the shower! There's more to this story than heat and great chemistry. The growing emotional bond is done very nicely. There were moments though, where I though Mac's coverup of his true identity was carried a bit too far. All in all though, another very enjoyable read by Ms. Anders.
Tired of being the good daughter, Laurel wants a fling with a bad dude, but with her doing the manhandling. Mac changes his attire from suit to biker because he plans to make it with Laurel. He also acts like he owns the world with no cares. However, as they fall in love, he wonders how to tell her that he is really a stockbroker working for her father.
Kind of reminiscent of Steve Gutenberg's role in The Boyfriend School (without his health problems), this is a fun lighthearted hot blooded masquerade tale. The lead duet is an interesting match-up because Mac wonders if Laurel fell in love with someone who is not real or did she see deep past the biker shell to his soul. Though the disguising of Mac seems to take too long to unravel, contemporary fans will want to read Laurel's heated MANHANDLING of her beloved biker and her broker.
