Monkey Business Trio #2
Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom—and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotion—but only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidy—just not her pity. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignity—and maybe the woman he’s hungry to claim once more.
Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams—until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn’t letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous heartthrob Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behind—and who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw’s seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it’s for the highest stakes of all.
This book was a gift from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
When last we saw Cassidy she had run away to handle a family emergency. Baffled Shaw needs to know why she left and handed him the contract she worked so hard for. This is how he finds himself on a Maine road in the middle of nowhere yelling at Siri.
I really love the way this story develops. Cassidy’s first love and best friend Casey is very much in the picture in her hometown. He is helping an author (Mia) with research for a romance novel that involves lobstermen.
Shaw first makes friends with Abby Casey’s mom who “adopts” him. Casey acts the typical jealous boyfriend, but he really isn’t Cassidy’s, not anymore.
The time Casey spends with Mia seems more than just book research. While Cassidy feels kind of betrayed by that, she also knows she has to re-evaluate her feelings toward him and Shaw. A complex relationships at best.
A hurricane is the catalyst in this story for everyone. The emotions every bit as turbulent as the storm.The aftermath, a true showing of small town life.
I did a lot of laughing, a bit of crying and had to hydrate a lot. The sex was as always sizzling hot.
I can’t wait for the next book in this series to see where life leads these richly diverse characters.
