Wickedly sexy James Bowen is a bad boy of the highest order -- tattoos and attitude included -- which unfortunately ranks way up on Tate's not-a-chance-in-hell list, right there along with skydiving naked over Teheran and juggling Ebola vials just for kicks. But what the heck, she's on holiday, the guy is absolutely irresistible, and she needs to unplug from her life.
With her dad and brother gone, Tate is left to deal with the family restaurant, which is fast going down the drain. Her employees are acting out, her boyfriend has bailed out, and her very own private stalker is emailing her to death with lovely threats of doom, fire, and dismemberment. So yeah, maybe a little holiday fling is in order. Strictly sex though, and no follow-up whatsoever once.
She hadn't counted on her take-charge holiday fling having an opinion of his own and stubbornly sticking around, before and after the sex, making himself at home in her life. There is definitely more to James than meets her prejudiced eye, and even if she's not ready to look deeper, James isn't prepared to permit her not to.
I do adore Tate's sass and witty comments...though her stubbornness can get a little irritating down the road. Tate cracks me up. She's a feisty one. Don't let her good girl look fool you because she is one pirate princess! Bare and pierced. One thing I didn't like about Tate was how prejudiced and judgemental she was. Piling all that stereotype on James just because he has ink. Tsk tsk tsk. I would gladly have James tyvm. At least we get to see her groveling a little (though not enough) when she tries to get James back at the end. You don't deserves James though D<
I'm glad I finally got around to reading the Bowen series. Definitely going to check out more of Elle Aycart's books! She write some mean, steamy sex <3 Once you get pass Tate's ...flaw, this is one good read!
