Never mix business with pleasure…
A physical therapist for successful Rugby team, the Strathstow Sharks, Ashley’s golden rule is never to mix business and pleasure. She loves her job and the guys she looks after, and doesn’t want to jeopardise her place with the team. As nicely put together as her charges are, she’s never found herself remotely tempted.
Harry James, the team’s newest prop gives her butterflies in her stomach every time she has to treat him, and her fantasies involving his hard, muscled body and sinful lips keep her hot and bothered at night. Luckily, he shows no sign of having noticed her attraction, and hasn’t shown any interest in her…
She’s been his from the moment he saw her…
Harry James marked the pretty little physio the first day they met. For the last year he’s been biding his time, and trying to get her attention. So much so, it’s gained him a few nicknames in the squad. Not that anyone would dare tell her.
When the Sharks win big on Harry’s birthday, can he stop at claiming a birthday kiss, or will he want everything she has to give?
*I received this book free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review*
I think this is my favorite Strathstow Sharks book yet. It’s a full book only compact…what I mean is you have the initial buildup, you have the oh hell yes middle, and then you have the conflict, make-up, and happily ever after. And all in less than 50 pages.
Harry is one powerful wall of muscle. He has to be. But he’s had a soft spot for the team’s physical therapist for about a year and it’s finally time to make his move.
“Sweetheart, you can check out my pockets, and anything else, any time you like.”
In spite of the age difference Ashley still has butterflies every time she sees Harry, but she’s always kept things professional. That is until he wagers a kiss and wins. She’ll show for his birthday, and she’ll give him the kiss he won, but that’s not all she’ll give him. Mixed up in a night of passion they’ll both lose not only their bodies to each other, but also their hearts.
“I’m going to take you to bed, Ashley. Then I’m going to make you scream.”
