Blurb: Big girls don’t cry.
They go after what they want.
Thanks to her bangin’ curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie’s luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie’s determined to get Logan’s attention . . . even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar.
Logan can’t remember a time when Valerie didn’t secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It’s only when he finds Valerie’s naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality.
No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences.
Review: What a great story from Alison Bliss! If course it didn’t hurt that it was set in Texas, but it was also hot, arch and set with complicated backstorys adding additional interest to a pretty fun trope–older brother’s best friend listing after his friend’s younger sister. Lots of illicit fun happens in storage closets!
Everything in Valerie’s life was going well until her nemesis, Logan, moves back to town. She still cringes when she remembers throwing herself at him years before and getting turned down flat. Seeing him will just remind her of how that felt. It seems unavoidable in the small Texas town of Granite. Plus, how can she explain but going to the new bar in town which coincidentally is owned by him. Crap.
Logan is in dire straights. Once a hellion, he’s grown up since he’d moved away. Unfortunately it has been almost too late to save his mom’s house from foreclosure. Now he’s got everything riding on making the bar a success so he can pay off her back mortgage payments. Everything seems to be going against him, though. He only fears more trouble will come when Valerie walks in the door. It has been hard to resist guys best friend’s little sister before. Now it was going to be impossible.
How those two get together is smoking hot, but the path they travel is anything but smooth. Great story with realistic issues. Thanks Ms Bliss! Thanks
