Kerry has hated Rhys from the moment she set eyes on him. They’ve never had an encounter that didn’t end with them both enraged. Paired up at his brother’s wedding, their clashing personalities come to a head and a daring wager is made. Rhys agrees to submit to Kerry for a single evening if she will do the same. Considering the sexual flavors Rhys has enjoyed in his past, it’s one bet Rhys is sure he can’t lose. But Kerry has a few secrets of her own and her plans for him land Rhys in a place he never expected—the arms of sexy Italian solicitor, Asher D’Ettore.

Asher becomes an obsession Rhys can’t shake. His alpha ways and confident mannerisms render all of Rhys’ usual charm useless. With his hard-earned reputation in the media spotlight, Rhys is forced to make a choice between his public persona and true love.

Inside Scoop: This sexy tale includes graphic sexual male on male encounters and fetish club references, which could have you searching for one in your area.

In a Nutshell: Rhys' world is turned upside down by a man and he has to reevaluate his life.

The Set Up: Rhys, the first male lead, returns to town to be in his brother's wedding. He gets into a bet with his a woman from his gym and ends up meeting Asher, the second male lead.

Why I Read This Book: I enjoy M/M romance and I love the idea of bending alpha male rules.

What I Liked: The book is decently written. I love erotica that allows me to think as I read and this one allows my imagination to run wild. I love the alpha males and the way Rhys is introduced to Asher. I also have a thing for the name Asher because of the LKH books so whenever I see that name insta-love. The men in this story have a great chemistry and it plays out well through the plot.

What I Didn't Like: You really need to read the other books in this series before trying this one. There are too many characters to keep straight and tensions running high. It's difficult to connect with the characters at points because you have no basis for some of their reactions. The author does throw in brief back story so it's possible to read this separate but I don't recommend it.

IMO: Good writing and easy pacing create a steamy world that draws the reader in.
