    Droolworthy Hero

    I'm absolutely in love with this story, even though the cover doesn't do the mental image I have of Caleb justice. The stories in the Melbourne After Dark duo, as well as associated online short story, Masked Seduction, have double connections with the Carmina Masquerade Ball being a feature in all of them on top of the friendship/family link. Overall in my opinion, Hard Deal was an enjoyable read that developed the relationship of main characters Caleb Allbrook and Imogen Hargrove while both of them are faced with challenges brought about by other external relationship issues. Imogen avoids swearing or cursing as much as she can, making for some amusing alternatives. I don't think I'm going to be able to look at smurfs the same way after reading this book. The llama reference that regular readers of Ms London know to look for in each book, works perfectly in this book since it builds on a "quirk" of the hero's style choices. I love how the setting of the epilogue brought the story full circle in a way.

    Excellent

    Determined to save her sister from heartache, Imogen Hargrove agrees to date infamous but irresistable playboy Caleb Allbrook if he’ll help dig up dirt on the cheating fiancé. Great chemistry between the characters and just the right amount of angst and loads of steamy romance.

    Amusing, provocative, and witty!

    Hard Deal is a charming, titillating tale about the hardworking, dependable Imogen who finds it hard to trust and has a past riddled with heartbreak, and the handsome, charismatic playboy, Caleb who's determined to prove he's capable of more than just having fun and looking good. The writing is fluid and sultry. The characters are hesitant, supportive, and lovable. And the plot sweeps you away into a storyline filled with shameless flirting, tantalizing mishaps, steamy chemistry, undeniable attraction, friendship, family, light drama, romance, and love. Overall, Hard Deal is a passionate, cheeky, absorbing novel that's perfect for rom-com lovers everywhere. And even though it's the second novel in the Melbourne After Dark series and runs concurrently with Unmasked (Melbourne After Dark #1), it can definitely be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.
