Back Blurb 

A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.

Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too.

What I LIKED about this book.

Smoking sex, but besides that, Jax and Lexi cared for each other the way partners are supposed to.

What I DISLIKED about this book.

I have never been in the sort of industry Lexi is in. I have seen clean cut famous people date someone with a rougher image. It did not turn me away from them. I never saw how Jax's current image was a big deal. 

Full Review

Jax is a movie star turned stunt man. Tired of the paparazzi and crazy fans, Jax stepped out of the limelight. As a stunt man he gets all of the thrills with none of the headache. Women are easy to pick up, as long as you don't want them to have any substance. Jax gave up on the notion that he could find a woman who like him for him a long time ago. He's tired and just want to work in peace.

Lexi is not looking for anything because she is too busy to sleep. Who has time to date? A fling, she could make some time for that. One night with Jax bleeds into another and another. Much longer and she is going to have to make some hard decisions about her career, her life, and what she wants from Jax.
