Matthew, the young man we met in the first book, (Something So Right) is all grown up now. Having been drafted into the NHL at the tender young age of seventeen. And like so many who have fame and money thrown at them too young, he took it to the extreme. Becoming the “Bad Boy of the NHL”. Partying, drinking, women, and just too much bad behavior in general. So bad, he was demoted and finally cut from his team.
Now older and wiser, he’s being given a second chance. Keep his nose clean, and he keeps his job. Screw up just once, and he’s through.
To ensure Matthew keeps himself out of trouble, his owner has hired him a chaperone. Or as Matthew sees it, a babysitter, his new bosses daughter, Karrie.
And as expected, these two have chemistry from the very first touch. Karrie fights it, trying to remain professional and do her job. Matthew knows he has found his “missing piece”. The piece that completes him. Makes him whole. And he will do whatever it takes to convince Karrie they belong together.
What I loved about this book, and the first book, is the prologue. It gives you that “Uh-Oh” moment that happens in most books. You know what it is, and how it plays out, you just don’t know when it’s coming. And Matthew’s Uh-Oh is a doozy.
My only problem with this book was that I had a hard time seeing Matthew as anything other than the sweet, kind, protective big brother and son, that we met in the first book. And the sweet, thoughtful, protective man we meet in this book. All of his “bad behavior” takes place after the first book and before this book. It’s all off page. I just didn’t buy into his whole bad boy persona.
We do get a peek at Matthew’s younger sister Allison’s book. And boy is her Uh-Oh moment a shocker!
This book follows on from Something So Right, but could be read as a standalone (just be aware that there is some family backstory – though the important bits are rehashed). This is the story of Matthew Grant – we met him as the strong, big-hearted teenager of a single mother who married an NHL legend – and he is now an NHL legend in his own right, but for all the wrong reasons.
Matthew was drafted into the league at 17, and he lost himself to the party lifestyle, which eventually impacted his game and saw him almost lose his career. Now, several years later he is getting his second chance, but with his new team desperate to protect their investment, they appoint him a full-time guardian. Matthew is highly unimpressed at this development, but is even more shocked when he finds that his ‘babysitter’ isn’t a burly old man like he expected, but instead is a hot young woman whose smart mouth and refusal to give in to him has him riled up in a way he’s never been before. And, she’s the boss’s daughter.
Karrie’s father owns Matthew’s team (among other things). She is working her way up in his company, specialising in media and public relations, and so she’s horrified that she’s now going to be babysitting an arrogant, manwhoring brat. She believes she can ignore how gorgeous he is, and the way her body reacts to him, but her one attempt at sex didn’t go so well, and her pent-up need and curiosity has her feeling edgy, and when Matthew moves into her brownstone being all demanding and alpha, it doesn’t take long before everything changes.
I loved this relationship! I was expecting a slow burn as these two strong personalities snark and banter with each other, but their attraction is too strong, their chemistry sizzles, and Matthew moves with the force of a tidal wave. He knows what he wants, he goes for it, and he won’t take no for an answer.
Of course, Karrie, though a little wary, is only too keen to go along with it, and then it’s all on! It’s quick moving, but it felt realistic to me. Matthew and Karrie are together 24/7, and that kind of intensity allows for a fast-paced relationship, and with the attraction and emotion that is brewing between them, I could feel it all along with them.
Their relationship is a great mix of banter and teasing, scorchingly hot sexy time and sweet moments. Matthew’s caveman antics, while sometimes OTT, are so funny, and I love how openly he embraces the whole relationship thing – opening himself up for the first time, and holding nothing back from Karrie. And the emotional builds beautifully.
There are some things they need to overcome – mostly, the secretive nature of their relationship, given that they work together and who Karrie’s father is. And then there’s the dramatic twist that’s thrown in in the prologue. You know it’s coming, and you’re waiting for it to hit, wondering how it’s all going to come about and how it will impact on their story. But for the most part, this book is drama and angst free, and a really easy read. It’s a gorgeous love story with great characters that is lots of fun, and shows us lots of time with them together as a couple, and great progression for their relationship.
Matthew’s parents, Cooper and Parker from Something So Right, are of course a part of the story, and I loved catching up with them and their family. And Lauren and Austin from Tempt the Boss also make an appearance, which I loved! There is a lead in to the next book of the series which will be Allison’s – Matthew’s feisty younger sister – and OMG, what a twist that was! I can’t wait for her story!
I loved this book. It’s lots of fun, and I loved losing myself in a hot, swoony, easy, drama-free read that had me hooked from start to finish. And bonus – there’s not one, but two fantastic epilogues! Woohoo!
They go from strangers to (LITERALLY) 2 days later, instalove, all in.
Top it off with a huge amount of controlling male behavior that seriously skirts the line of abuse. Handcuffing her to the bad and locking up her wallet and phone so she can’t get away?
This isn’t sexy.
It doesn’t prove how much he loves her.
It’s controlling abuse.
Major turn off and a TERRIBLE message to send.
Just poorly written throughout with melodramatic dialogue.
Sorry I bought this.👎👎
