Breaking hearts is what wild and rebellious Mason Kincaid does best. Hit it and quit it is his motto, and with his bad boy reputation and tattoos, he doesn't lack for female companionship. Until one hot night with the one woman he swore he'd never touch becomes an all consuming addiction he can't kick. Katrina Sands has been his best friend for years, but now that he knows what she feels like, and tastes like, there is no going back to being just friends. Hot, dirty sex has never felt so good...or so right.
Well, Mason is the ultimate bad boy who takes the women he wants and moves on. He's got a reputation and one he gladly flaunts. His best friend, Katrina, has watched him work his way through women like they were on a menu and she's had enough. He's oblivious to the way he makes her feel and how much she loves him, and she wants it to stay that way. However, he challenges her and tells her she needs to get laid so she can lighten up and Kat takes it to heart. Little does Mason know, the challenge has pushed her to the edge and she is going to show him just what he's missing.
Mason was great. He's cocky and fun to follow. He surprises himself when he sees his Kitty-Kat begin to show other men what she's got. He's also simply clueless when it comes to his best friend and how she has felt about him all along. He reminded me of most young guys who think they have the world by the tail and can do no wrong. He's very likable and real. Katrina is as well. She wears her heart on her sleeve, and even though Mason is oblivious, she still holds out that he'll change. When they finally give into their attraction, I had to put the book down. It was scorching hot and an emotional overload.
Phillips and Wilde found a nice balance between the physical and emotional experience for both characters and continue to develop it throughout the book. There is so much happening between them and around them, but they remain steady and it feels very real. I liked that none of the story felt over the top or like it was out of reach- if that makes sense. Well done, ladies! Well done!
