Opposites definitely attract in this sexy yet serious book. Piper Lawson has done a great job making two characters who could easily be difficult to connect to – an over the top playboy and a religious single mom – into the perfect couple. I loved how these two grew and changed over the course of the book. It had me hooked from start to finish and contained as much sexiness as it did heart.
The story follows Logan Hunter, a man from a wealthy family who is constantly underestimating himself. He considers himself a “good time guy,” going from woman to woman and never sticking around long enough to experience any of the tough times. Over a game of poker with his guy friends, he somehow winds up betting that he can sell 10,000 vibes in 3 months. If he wins, he gets a fancy penthouse that will allow him to up his playboy lifestyle to the next level. But things get real when the stake is shares of the family business he loves. Enter Kendall, the marketing expert tasked with helping him win the bet. She’s attracted to Logan but was raised in a religious family, and the one time she gave into her desire she wound up pregnant. It will take a lot more than an overgrown frat boy to win her over, but as she spends more time with Logan, she realizes there’s a lot more to him than he’d like to admit.
When I started the reading, I wasn’t sure how well I was going to connect with Logan. He is a playboy to the max, and the bet certainly isn’t a flattering one. But Lawson wrote his character perfectly; it didn’t take long for him to grow on me, and I was definitely rooting for these two to get together. It’s sexy yet also heartfelt, the perfect blend of these two characters. The growth they both experienced throughout the story and complexity of their emotions made the book that much more interesting, and I loved the ride.
I bet my family’s legacy on pleasing 10,000 women.
Kendall Sullivan, marketing queen, is my only hope of saving the thing I love most.
She doesn’t have time for my jokes or my playboy reputation.
Too bad I can’t get her sweetness or her toughness out of my head.
So what happens when the only woman I want to please is her?
Pastor’s kid. Single mom. Divorced before I could drink.
I’ve lived my life without regrets.
Until the infamous Logan Hunter makes me an offer: I help with his problem and he helps with mine.
He’s the most gorgeous, infuriating man I’ve ever met.
I know it’s reckless. A bad idea…
I’m totally going to hell for this.
