Indulge your inner vixen…
Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, fiercely loyal, uber alpha brothers about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. If dirty talk, cursing, or raw, passionate sex turns you off, the After Dark books are not for you, because everything’s naughtier after dark.
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.
Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.
Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.
I have read quite a number of books by Melissa Foster and have enjoyed her sweet and sensuous romances, but this is my first book in her new After Dark series and I have to say the button was turned up all the way from steamy to sizzling hot! This is one steaming hot read and Amanda and Mick had off the charts chemistry, enhanced by their secrets feelings for each other and in spite of how hot this story was, it still retains the sweetness and sensuality that readers have come to expect from Ms. Foster.
Amanda Jenner is looking to unleash her inner vixen and take control of her love life, and after much research on the subject she settles on a masquerade party as the perfect place to try out her newly acquired skills. Only the masked man she sets her sights on turns out to be her boss and after some persuasion, she agrees to a weekend of decadent pleasure. But what will happen come Monday morning? And will she be able to hide her love for him as she’s done for the last three years?
Mick Bad avoids relationships, with good reason and never mixes business with pleasure in spite of the many options available to him in his line of work, which makes one time hookups his preferred option, but when his hookup is his paralegal whom he’s been lusting after for as long as she been working for him, all bets are off.
I really enjoyed Amanda and Mick. Amanda is the very definition of innocent temptress and Mick is one sexy man. I love that even though the story itself is fast, their romance had been building for several years and they couldn’t hide how they felt about each other even when Mick was supposed to be teaching her the art of seduction.
If you love a sexy romance, then this book should make your reading list this summer, but make sure to keep cool while reading it because it’s sure to raise your temperature. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series and will be catching up the Wild Boys series in the meantime.
