Dexter is a smart guy. He really is when it comes to the game of chess, business, and playing the part of a jet-setting playboy. But when it comes to Ava, he is at a loss. She is one of his closet friends and she also happens to be one of his business partner's little sister. Along with his other friend and business partner Oz, they are his only family. The problem? He wants her something fierce. He stopped looking at her as the little sister of Leo two years ago. He saw her now as a bold, beautiful, and sinful woman. He has resisted her for those two years even when he sees her daily for their coffee dates. He is pretty impressed with himself. That was until she needed a date for a weekend upstate for a homecoming reunion. He was f- especially since she has been looking at him differently since the night he said yes.
Ava is tired of Dexter looking at her like she was a kid sister. This is her chance to show that she is a grown woman with needs that she thinks he can only fulfill. She knows that in a few weeks he has to go overseas for a couple of years to expand the Checkmate, Inc. company. She just wants her chance and then they can decide what is next, if anything. She can't let him go to another country to be the playboy the gossip magazines talk about without showing him her other side. Will this weekend upstate be the beginning of something new or the end of an epic friendship?
My name is Sandra and I am in love with a sexy as f- geek. Seriously...Dexter is geeky hot in his black-rimmed glasses and tailor-made suits. I would even learn to play chess for this man. He is a dirty-talking man that knows exactly what he is doing between the sheets. Like he said, he is a smart man and smart men are curious. They make for great lovers. And he is so funny! I also loved Ava. She is bold, sexy, and smart. She isn't afraid to tell him exactly what she wants. Once those flood gates were open, she was all in. Together, their connection is pure hotness. Their friendship is beautiful. But what about her brother? Will he do what he promises when a man gets near his sister? Even if it's one of his best friends?
Overall...I loved it all. It's was the perfect mix of sexiness and fun. There is also more to the story then just sex. It's about friendship, love, family, and discovering what is in important.
P.S. I want a Porsche.
“Um,” I finally manage to say. Yeah, yeah, I know. My vocabulary is astounding.
“Oh, God,” she gasps when my hips settle between her legs.
“No, it’s just me.” I chuckle against her ear. “But I’ve been told it has supernatural powers.”
“Have I broken any of the rules of chess, oh, Grand Master?” she teases.
This book exploded with chemistry from start to finish. ForePlay was great, and I liked Leo and Chloe a lot, but this book was at a whole different level. The sexual chemistry was nothing short of smoldering from the very first scene, and even though it took a while to get to the actual act, the build up to it, and Dex's constant sex-on-the-brain, was incredibly hot without being over the top or freaky. If you're a reader who is put off by anything “too kinky” in their books, do not worry, this book will make your heart race and your palms sweat without pushing kink boundaries.
The chemistry between Ava and Dex was palpable from the start, there is no question about that. I wish that there had been a few scenes where they were together and sex wasn't involved, where Dex looked at Ava and didn't think about her sexually just to show that their intense connection goes deeper than him lusting over her non-stop rather than just being told that it does, but that's not the kind of book that this is, so that wasn't a deal-breaker for me. Without spoiling anything, Oz and Leo's reactions to the fact that Dex and Ava were together were so perfect for each character, and Letitia was fabulous - as always. I liked the foreshadowing to Oz's book, and I cannot wait to see Oz meet the woman who will bring him to his knees.
On a side note, I cannot believe that I only *just now* realized the boys' last names are Foxx, Moore and Strong. Like Dex when his brain is Ava-addled, I'm super quick the uptake.
In my opinion, this book is the hottest one that Shelly Alexander has written to date. Not just because of the forbidden romance factor, but because of the chemistry between Dex and Ava, and because the book is written solely from Dex's point of view – something that is hot and does not happen enough in this genre. This series is different from Ms. Alexander's other books, but I like that she has branched out and I am looking forward to book three of this series.
I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this book from the author in a contest, and was under absolutely no obligation to write this review. I wrote the review because the book is great – and smoking hot.
