A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life.
Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he’s given up acting. Finding a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping stone to success is virtually impossible, so when the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a chance at a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more. Lots more.
But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle. And if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the rest.
Warning: This novel contains uber-hot sexual encounters. For safety’s sake, read along with pitcher of ice-water. Or…wine…
I was absolutely blown away! What an amazing book! The intrigue, the passion, and the chemistry blew my mind. Lexi’s sole focus was her career and her image. Jax decided he was done with dating and his bad boy image was everything Lexi knew she was supposed to avoid until Jax got a mysterious text….then it was on. These two turned ‘it’ up beyond blazing hot. Lexi knew it could only be a one time thing, but it was so good she didn’t know if she could let him go and her career depended on it. Lexi had to decide if the most amazing man she had ever met was worth a career she had worked on her whole life or if it possible to have it all. I could not put this book down and can’t wait to read Rebel, the next book in this series. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would in a heartbeat.
