He’s the best bad decision she’ll ever make….
Type A attorney Fiona Quinn has one goal left to accomplish before turning 30: A big, fairy-tale wedding. All she needs is a groom. So what if she’s never been in love—or even lust—before? She’s confident she can solve the problem the way she always does, with spreadsheets and an action plan.
When a family emergency brings Max “Bad Boy” Devlin swaggering back into town—with his cocky grin, tattoos, and wanderlust—Fiona has to remind herself that he’s as unsuitable as it gets. Nope. Not happening. No matter how irresistible his invitation is for a night or seven between the sheets. If she can’t tie him down—metaphorically, of course— her pants must stay on.
Max can’t remember the last time a woman turned him down. He’s a guaranteed three-orgasms good time, dammit. So what if he’s not the marrying kind? Those sweaty palms he gets when Fiona agrees to help him save his dad’s punk rock club are just an allergic reaction to her methodical march toward matrimony. Before he hits the road again, he’s going prove to Fiona that life’s more fun when you play, rather than plan.
No one gets hurt when it’s all just fun and games, right?
Author’s Note: A steamy, opposites attract standalone romance featuring a cocky bad boy (with a heart of gold) and a buttoned-up good girl (with a secret wild side). 1-click if you’re into dirty dancing, swoony first kisses from bad boys on motorcycles and hot trysts in supply closets. This book comes with a guaranteed (and very romantic) Happily Ever After.
Wow…just wow. If you haven’t read a Kathryn Nolan book then you need to rectify that travesty right now. She writes some of the sexiest, hottest, most beautiful books you will ever read. If you didn’t think sexy times could be written beautifully, then you haven’t read this author. You will be captivated from the start and fall head over heels for all of her characters.
This book is about Fiona. If you’ve read Strictly Professional then you know she’s Roxy’s sister. Fiona is an estate attorney from punk rock parents. She loves order and spreadsheets, but underneath has a chaotic, rocker soul. She’s the responsible adult within their family dynamics. Max is a bad boy biker with a wondering soul. Underneath all that devil-may-care attitude is a warm, loving center. They are so out of their element with each other, and that’s what makes their story so fun to read. There is also such a strong sense of family in this book that’s a delight to read. You will want to be a part of all of their lives.
I cannot recommend this book or this author enough. Make this book the next in your TBR list.
Kathryn Nolan is an adventurous hippie chick and loves to write steamy romance. Her books are filled with slow-burn sexual tension, memorable characters, tons of heart — and are often set in wild and beautiful locations.
Kathryn started her writing career in elementary school, writing about Star Wars and Harry Potter and inventing love stories in her many journals. She blames her obsession with slow-burn on her similar obsession for The X-Files.
Kathryn is a wanderer at heart, and loves to spend her free time hiking, camping, and traveling in her camper van (“Van Morrison”) with her cute, nerdy husband and Walter, their rescue pup. Kathryn is a Philly girl who just moved back home after spending more than 8 years living in Northern California — and six months traveling across the country in her camper van.
