Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Off-limits never looked so tempting...problem is, she's my ex's little sister.

Cade men are known for two things: arrogance and competitiveness. I grew up in one of the wealthiest, most dysfunctional families in Lake Tahoe, and all I wanted was to get the hell out. I thought I'd succeeded. Until an accident
burned up my firefighter ambitions. Then Dad died and left me in charge of the family's luxury resort.

Now I've got financially uptight advisors telling me what to do, and I need someone I can trust working at my side. The perfect candidate walks through the door in her pencil skirt, fitted white blouse, and that mass of wavy blond hair she tries to contain.

The only problem? She's my cheating ex's younger sister.

Hell no. The last thing I need is another Wright female in my life.

But Emily's good at the job, and she seems trustworthy. I should ignore the desire I have for her. But after all I've lost, I'm tempted by what I can't have and ready to stoke the flame that smolders between us. As long as this Wright sister doesn't betray me the way the last one did.

Then again, I always liked playing with fire.

My Thoughts:

This book gives the reader a peek at the other Cade brothers – who we get to see as the rest of the series unfold.  If you’re thinking how fun it would be to start your own business, this book shows how tough it can be.  Don’t expect a lot of sex here – and it doesn’t need it.  The other aspects of this story are what make it stand out.  You do however get a lot of tension, heat, and the anticipation of what might be.  Part of the anticipation has to do with a mystery that surrounds the business.  And that was what had me hooked because I needed to know if the mystery gets solved or will it carry through to the next book.  We see how creative the author is by how many different ways Levi inserts his foot in his mouth.

The author does a great job in getting the reader ready for the next book in the series.  I was happy to see we don’t have to wait another year before the book comes out.  But I still have to wait until September to get my hands on Daring Wes.  The good thing is that I have a copy of Cocky Prince to get me through until then. This is an author that I will keep on my radar.


She climbed to her feet and leaned into him, tracing the
scar above his eye. “I like this scar.”
He chuckled and dropped his cheek into her hand. “Glad it
pleases someone. It didn’t feel too good when it happened.”
“I don’t like it because you were hurt. It’s just—it brought you to me. And it reminds me that you’re not the same person I met years ago.  That we’ve both changed… However”—she grinned saucily—“scars are pretty hot.”
He tugged at her top and kissed her collarbone, tickling her
with his lips, because the naughty man had quickly discovered a sensitive spot.
“My scar looks hot, does it?”
She laughed as he continued to pepper her skin with light
kisses. She lifted her shoulder in defense. “Very sexy.” 
“Hmmm, don’t give me ideas, Emily, or I won’t let you go home.”
