The next sizzling novel of C. L. Parker’s Monkey Business Trio—perfect for fans of Bared 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.
Playing Dirty (Book 1)
C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.
If Playing Dirty was the story of Shaw and Cassidy falling in lust, than Getting Rough is about them falling in love. This book left me swooning. Smitten. I loved it.
Getting Rough picks right up where the last book ended – with Shaw following Cassidy all the way to Maine. Whether he did this because he cares for her or because his pride won’t let their situation go; once he gets there, he isn’t leaving until he feels their relationship is properly resolved.
However things get even more complicated after he arrives – both for Shaw but especially for Cassidy. Her two worlds have collided and she isn’t sure which one is her true self. Does she stay home and marry the boy everyone thought she would or does she take a leap of faith and go after the man who brings out intense emotions, whether it be anger or passion?
Getting to happily ever after isn’t very easy but it sure is entertaining. Amelia and Shaw are quick witted and their time together is filled with mischievous moments that make you laugh out loud. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts hot and you’re devouring their time together. It’s awesome.
I thought Getting Rough was an outstanding read – I’m loving this series. The characters are fascinating and complex but they will definitely make you smile. Don’t miss out on the fun. My recommendation is that you meet Shaw and Cassidy today!!
