This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.
Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.
Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.
That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.
Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.
He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.
But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.
Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.
Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.
But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.
Ahhhh...Spurlock. I have been waiting for his sexy butt for quite some time now. Add in the fact that we get his story as well as Calloway’s makes for one amazing book. With the SWAT kids all grown up, each new story makes me giddy.
I’ll tell you what, Calloway can hold a grudge! I felt so sorry for Louis, but he never gave up. Once upon a time, he broke Callie’s heart, but he regretted that decision every day of his life. Therefore, the last thing he’s going to do is walk away again.
These two have amazing chemistry and holy cow is their sex off the charts. The cute thing? Friends knew they were destined to be together; it was only a matter of time before it happened. Knowing they grew up together makes for an even better story. I love how they all end up in each other’s books. Even if their story has already been written, we are still getting bits and pieces of their lives. Lani never ceases to amaze me. I simply cannot wait for Booth’s story in Jokes on You.
I was ecstatic when I heard we get Spurlock’s story! Lani sure didn’t disappoint, not that I thought she would…she always keeps me on toes!
Calloway and Spurlock have a history. They not only grew up together but had a young romance that ended in an ugly way. Spurlock knew he was making a mistake, but he had no clue as to how HUGE of a mistake that was.
Calloway is a spitfire which she needs to be since she’s a nurse at the local high school. She also has her own blog and magazine. She is a hot mess when it comes to Spurlock, even after a few years…when she sees him again it all comes back full on. Can he penetrate the armor that surrounds her heart?
This book was quirky and fun. I loved the banter between Calloway and Louis. They have the best chemistry and know how to make it steamy. I still have yet to come across a book by Ms Vale that I didn’t totally love. There’s always a flare of drama and suspense and let’s not forget the hot sex! I honestly couldn’t put this book down and I am impatiently waiting for the next Vale book to hit my kindle!
