Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice.

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn’t do relationships. When she’s sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is no other than the guy she left naked in bed.

Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for. The green-eyed millionaire playboy isn’t used to taking no for an answer, and he isn’t about to start now.

When he proposes two months of no strings sex, Brooke is intrigued and accepts his proposal. Little does she know Jett’s determined to claim the one woman he can’t have, pulling her deeper into his dangerous world.

A man who doesn't take 'no' for an answer.
A woman afraid to surrender to love.
Two lives that are about to cross...and secrets laid bare.

First of all, let me just get this out there....Way to leave a girl freaking hanging!! I mean talk about cliffhangers...ugh. *Sigh* Okay moving on...

I will be honest and say I wasn't sure I was going to like this book once I started. Which really bothered me because one, it sounded really good and I was really wanting to like it. And two umm have you seen that cover??  Three everyone around me has just loved it, I figured something was wrong with me.

I think I wasn't connecting with Brooke very well, she seemed to contradict herself in the beginning about her ex Sean. At first it was all "we have an open relationship and there's no future" to then after an oops type drunken "hook-up" it turns to "oh no I'm a cheat and I really wanted to see what kind of a future Sean and I have". The other thing was later when she starts this thing with Jett he was so bi-polar with her. Literally like hot one minute, (and I do mean hot...holy hell I think I'm still a bit flushed!), then he just like shuts off and for no visible reason he acts like he's mad at her and pushes her away. I mean I just couldn't identify with that. Why would a girl want to stick around and be with a guy like that? Just because he's gorgeous? It just felt wrong.

I mean now I think I understand. I stuck through to the end and I'm glad I did because when it comes down to it I finally ended up really liking this book and I want book two so bad!! I'm dying to find out if my assumptions about Jett are true or not. Even how things were left I'm still on board and Team Jett and I'm hoping that he won't let me down!
