Blurb: The next sizzling novel of C. L. Parker’s Monkey Business Trio—perfect for fans ofBared to You and Beautiful Bastard
Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom—and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotion—but only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidy—just not her pity. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignity—and maybe the woman he’s hungry to claim once more.
Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams—until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn’t letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous heartthrob Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behind—and who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw’s seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it’s for the highest stakes of all.
Getting Rough is intended for mature audiences.
Review: This book was fast, funny and hot. We joined Shaw and Cassidy right from the end of the first book, Playing Dirty, after Cassidy had handed over the position they’d fought for to Shaw and headed back home to Maine to help her parents.
That’s just not good enough for Shaw. He’ll take the partnership, sure, but he knows something’s hinky with the reason Cassidy left. Surely she didn’t take their fighting personally? It was just business. And he hates to get something handed to him that he fought so viciously for. It’s insulting.
Cassidy knew she needed to help her parents out after her mom broke her leg and left the running of the family bed and breakfast solely in her dad’s hands. Plus, there were too many things going on with Shaw.
Shawn had grown up rough, but that didn’t mean he wanted pity from Cassidy. Was that why she’s handed him the job? What was going on? And why did it feel so personal that she’d left and wouldn’t be available fit them to get together. What had started out as a plan to seduce her had turned into something he didn’t want to think about. Maybe it was love?
