Only Mick keeps changing the rules on her. Tempted by America’s favorite bad boy, Piper is wondering how far she’s willing to bend…
Initially, I had a somewhat hard time deciding what to rate this book. I had kind of a bi-polar reading experience with it. One minute, I seriously couldn’t put it down. It was definitely a page turner and the story was fabulous! But, the next minute, I found myself losing focus easier than I would have liked. After some internal debating I’ve come to the conclusion that the loss of focus has to do with the fact that the Hollywood setting has never really appealed to me. With all that being said, overall I really enjoyed this book. All the technical stuff was very well done. The writing style, the character development, the plot, all great! The supporting characters were also fantabulous; Chris would have to be my favorite followed very closely by Linc! 😉 (I hope we get a book for Linc!) This author really did an awesome job incorporating some of the steamiest sex scenes along with an actual story line. And let me tell you, there was a lot of steamy scenes! 😉 My only issue was a few typos in one spot that jacked up several lines and I wasn’t sure what it was supposed to say, but I’m sure they were an editing issue and not the author’s. This was my first book by Ms. Covington, and it will definitely not be my last!
