Love wasn’t in the script… 

Former man-eater Samantha Lockhart has been an actress long enough to be able to spot a smooth-talking player a mile away. Dark-haired, bourbon-eyed, a wicked smile…Kyle Masterson is one of the best.

From his bad-boy motorcycle boots to his good-ole-boy Southern drawl, everything about Kyle screams sex appeal. But after a tragedy hits close to home, Sam tries to convince herself she’s done with players on and off the stage. 

Kyle, a V-twin-riding divorce attorney, has witnessed enough horror stories of love gone wrong to know that while women are welcome in his bed, they’re definitely not in his future. But once the petite, mercurial redhead catches his eye, he can’t think of anything—or anyone—else. 

Sam’s trust doesn’t come easy, but the more time they spend together, the deeper they both fall. Yet just as they’re breaking through each other’s barriers, someone who doesn’t like being upstaged makes a deadly play of his own. And if Sam refuses, she may not be able to breathe a word to anyone…ever.

Warning: Contains a small-town thespian who isn’t easily fooled and a lawyer with a weakness for V-twin engines and sassy redheads.

This is definitely a sexy read. I enjoyed the first book in the series as well. They are only loosely connected so this can be read as a standalone. These books are borderline MC, although this one much less.
            I liked characters, the personalities the author portrayed. Samantha was an outgoing, partying, commitment-phob, ensconced in her career as an actress. Until her parents are killed in a car accident, at which point she becomes rather introverted and a bit of hermit. As she begins to find her way out into the world again, she meets Kyle, a playboy to the extreme with southern charm and a determination to have Samantha.
            Kyle is a southern boy, a divorce lawyer, and has no belief in happily ever after, however he isn’t able to convince himself to stop his chase.
            The chemistry between these two is great, they practically burst into flames around each other. Also, Samantha’s sister is a very likeable character, someone I wanted to know more about and I was rooting for her when she schemed o help Samantha.
            Samantha’s best friend Patrick threw a bit if a wrench in the story. I liked him so much that I was wishing it was his and Samantha’s story instead of Kyle. He is sweet, sophisticated, masculine, and even being gay, I was silently hoping that Samantha would cause him to switch sides. Lol.
            The hardest thing for me to swallow, however, was the speech patterns in the book. I mentioned it briefly in my review of book one. I understand that leaving off the first word in a sentence, such as I, the, she, etc, is an MC thing and though it was annoying, it didn’t bother me as much in book 1, especially since Jackson is a true biker. Unfortunately, is was much, much more prevalent in this book. In both Samantha and Kyle’s dialogue. Samantha is a far cry from a biker, and she’s an actress, therefore she would have excellent diction.
It was a disaster with Kyle, it made him incredibly unbelievable for me. First of all, the author refers to his southern drawl (that is not a speech pattern you would hear in the south), even worse, he is a high powered attorney. IN his position, he would need to be incredibly eloquent.
The book is a short, steamy read and actually has a little more meat to the plot than book one, with some danger and action. Unfortunately, I had a rough time with this one, but I may come back for Max and Jessica’s story. This turned out to be about a 3.5 for me.

Harper Kincaid's
A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I am tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.

What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia. I totally love hearing from readers so stalk me via social media or email me at HarperKincaid26@gmail.com!
