I know the game. I know the angle. I know how to make you beg.
My hands on your body, my mouth hovering over yours—I’ll tell you everything you want to hear. Ten inches of real estate never felt so good.
But don’t take my word for it. My client list is long and my motto is short—one single thrust and you’re mine. I’m not good at what I do, I’m fantastic. But satisfaction doesn’t come cheap. So open your wallet and prepare to forget your name. I’m about to ruin you for any other man.
One single thrust and you’re mine.
I read Rough during it’s blog tour a few months ago and am on the blog tour for Grind next month so wanted to go back and read the first book in this series as soon as possible so that I was fully up to date with the series. Boy am I glad I did. Alex is a stonking leading man and everything you love to hate in a man, OK everything I love to hate in a man!
He’s rude, abnoxious, arrogant, an escort, and he doesn’t do relationships of any kind. It took about 30 seconds of reading for me to absolutely adore him. The way he is so sure of himself while he does his job is very attractive. Then when he spots Olivia and makes a beeline for her thinking it will be purely for one moment then quickly falling like Alice down the rabbit hole was beautiful showing that even the roughest and toughest of men have hearts that can be cracked.
Olivia is trying to launch a new charity to help veterans with PTSD, having lost her brother to PTSD she wants to do everything she can to save other families the heartbreak she experiences. She is a gentle soul with a heart of gold. She’s spent most of her adult life in love with the same man, but he’s never looked twice at her. Alex infuriates her but he wakes up parts of her body she’s never realised could be woken up, she feels things she’s never felt before.
This is a highly charged sexual novel, Sybil Bartel writes in a beautiful way that is enticing and riveting all at once. I can’t wait to get my hooks into Grind and see what is in store next.
