Ryker Powers was the biggest prick I'd ever met.
He was also my biggest mistake.
He'd taken what he wanted then left, and I detested him for it. Not that the jerk had cared to stick around long enough to know how I felt.
Everyone thought he was a perfect gentleman with all his quiet intensity, but I knew better.
I knew he had a filthy mouth. That he liked things dirty.
He may have had people fooled into thinking he was a nice guy, but I knew exactly who he was.
He was a bad boy who'd ask for a light from the devil himself.
And I wanted to see him burn.
Until I realized--to my utter horror--that what I really wanted was him.
Who was going to get burned now?
New adult. Not recommended for readers under 18
Book 4 was just as satisfying as Book 1 in the series. The boys in these books, brothers and best friends, will make you weak in the knees. Beginning with Gable, you'll meet four guys who bring new meaning to the words "Bad Boy". Zeke and Loch carry on the family reputation, but Ryker is a man all his own. He is a ladies' man with little to no desire for a long term relationship. In fact, he's content spending time with as many women as possible as long as they are both satisfied in the end, but he doesn't count on Frankie.
He doesn't count on a feisty woman, who's wanted him for years, to return the morning after a wild night between the sheets. He doesn't count on her catching him saying good bye to another woman he'd just entertained and he doesn't count on finding her a challenge- one he'd do nearly anything to win. He doesn't do relationships. He doesn't do the boyfriend thing, but he just might change his ways for Frankie....if she'd only follow the rules. His alpha male personality, that he comes by naturally, likes to be in control.
Frankie is a riot. She's a handful and finds a sense of self in her attempt to gain Ryker's attentions, but when she gets it, she isn't exactly sure what to do with him. Does she trust him? Does he trust her? Will he fit in with her plan? They are both unsure of each other and have to learn to trust. Loch is involved in their story and helps things along since he knows his brother the best, but we also get to see what is going on with the other brothers briefly. Frankie trusts Loch and takes a leap into Ryker's arms, but is he capable of handling her?
Such a fun, steamy read! Great addition to the series and well worth the read.
