million dollar question, yet again, I was stunned. After countless times of
turning him down, I thought eventually he’d give up.
Unexpectedly thrown together for a work project, my mind went to places I’d
never allowed. Dirty places where sweaty, naked bodies take center ring and
names are rasped out in the heat of the moment.
Now, my time is spent wondering if a certain part of him could possibly live up
to his last name, distracting me from my full time job – as his boss.
Can I continue to keep things professional or will I give in and tussle?
This is another well written sport’s themed story, (which I think are my favorite’s from Jacob) that grabs your attention from Prologue to End,and again it was a privilege to read it in advance(a couple of times actually)… I LOVED IT!
We begin with Lilah,(22) who is about to start working for her Family’s business (World Class Wrestling) and on her first day,meets Jesse (27) on her way in,with no idea of who he is,agrees to meet after work….heads in to meet with her dad-to get the rules/expectations of her job…and one of those important rules is a no dating co-worker’s policy…and of course,when she runs into Jesse later..discovers he’s an upcoming wrestler…and therefore off limits!!
Three years down the line,Jesse’s been relentless in his quest to have something more with Lilah, each time she refuses,he keeps on trying,she’s determined to keep things professional yet there is a mutual attraction,that slowly builds along with a fair amount of humor,before the inevitable hotness happens.I really enjoyed the back and forth between them both, that Jesse’s not just ‘Jesse Gunn’~the persona he gives his fans,he shows Lilah he’s more than that,which surprises her,and makes her face the fact she wants more. The side character’s that are introduced along the way~Jesse’s sister Ronnie,and his best friend Wyatt(possible future book for them??) also provide some humor to the story.
The attention to detail,especially with the action of the wrestling side,is enough to make you feel as though you are actually there,giving you an insight into what goes on behind the scenes, adding some slight drama/angst moments towards the end,will Jesse and Lilah be able to be together? You’ll have to read for yourself to find out!!
