Author: Samanthe Beck
His barely-decent proposal is too tempting to resist…
Laurie Peterson assumes her impulsive one-night stand with sinfully sexy Sheriff Ethan Booker is the biggest surprise of the year…until her bakery burns down while she’s basking in the afterglow. It looks like her dreams are up in smoke, but then Ethan proposes a deal too tempting to resist.
Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
Samanthe Beck is one of my go-to authors when I need a good steamy read to get my mind off real life and with Hard Compromise, the second book in her Compromise Me series, she did not disappoint me. The story which follows Sheriff Ethan Booker as he finally pursues the one girl he's craved for years, but didn't think he could be with before was so good. Given the history between these two and the fact that Ethan resisted Laurie for so long when these two finally come together it was all so wonderfully intense and passionate. And the best part about the story was that nothing felt rushed because it all felt like it was a long time coming. All-in-all this book was all the things I've come to expect from a Samanthe Beck book and more. But as much as I loved the romance, I kind of wished the side plot involving Laurie's horrible mother was more fleshed out. The author did resolve that loose end in the epilogue, but it wasn't as satisfying as I needed it to be. But that aside I loved this book! I really hope that Sam writes more books in this series because they are so good and I highly recommend them!
