Blurb From Goodreads:
In the follow-up to Risking It All, hailed by Lauren Layne as “the perfect escapist read,” the heartthrobs of the Naked Men blog and podcast get a little too real about friendship, love, and sex. For one wealthy bachelor, the trouble starts when all three collide. . . .
After narrowly surviving a bus crash in high school with his best friends, science geek Knox Davis resolved to become so successful that he could have anything and everything he wants. Now he’s über-wealthy, a huge business success, and a notorious ladies’ man. Knox refuses to limit himself to one woman, but when his latest conquest—a blond beauty from the Alaskan bush—challenges his superficial ways, Knox begins to see the world through her eyes, and finds he likes what he sees.
A nurturer at heart, Madison Abbott wants to put down roots. She left Alaska to meet Mr. Right—and to track down Logan, the half-brother she’s never met. Instead, she finds Knox. Although the sexy-as-sin bachelor may not seem like marriage material, Madison’s starting to think that Knox is The One. But Knox refuses to settle down, especially once he learns that Madison is his best friend’s little sister. Now it’s up to her to convince Knox that she’s everything he really wants.
I absolutely LOVED Madison, she could care less about Knox’s money, she wanted to know the man, which is exactly how I feel. Money means nothing if you don’t have someone special to enjoy it with. And talk about steamy, I think my glasses fogged up a few times. The fact that they were kissing minutes after meeting each other had me wondering at first, but the grab each experience by the balls attitude that both the characters had eased my worry. And I couldn’t stop laughing during that first kiss scene when a dog started humping Knox’s leg. His response to the owner of said dog when she pointed out that “There’s a hotel right behind you”, “Sorry, I’m not available to keep your dog entertained. I’ve already got my hands full.”, had me laughing out loud for a good five minutes. I could picture it perfectly in my head as the woman got all huffy and stormed off, dragging her dog with her lol. I am loving this series and can’t wait to read the next one!
