    Sexy Contemporary romance!

    This fabulous romance is the story of Alex and Jessie. Alex is a well established playboy, not looking for love just a fun time and when he sees his childhood friend Jessie all grown up he is captivated - and afraid, of what she makes him feel and want for his future. When she makes her interest in him known Alex is determined that his reputation not damage her in any way but he is helpless to resist her and the affair they embark on is everything he could want in a relationship - except that an end date suddenly looms before them. Is Alex willing to open himself up fully to a future with Jessie? And will Jessie be able to ignore Alex's reputation and consider a real relationship with him? I loved this story! From the first page you are introduced to Alex's character as a sexual, confident man, never embarking on a romantic relationship after a disastrous young love affair that taught him to be cynical and hardened his heart. He views sex as a means to an end and never lets his heart get involved. His reputation in that regard is widespread - one that has never bothered him until he meets Jessie again and realizes that everyone will warn him away from her. Jessie is portrayed as a sweet, friendly woman, one who has always had a crush on Alex but one he never really saw as anyone more than his best friend's sister. When she realizes that he is finally seeing her as a woman, and a desirable one at that she is willing to face the wrath of her older brothers and give Alex a chance. She has seen the real Alex under the facade, the one who always was kind to her as a child, included her when others didn't, and gave her solace when her mother died. She knows that she can reach the real him and is willing to take the chance on a broken heart by opening herself up to a relationship. There are plenty of sex scenes in this book, but they are all important to the story, revealing not only Alex's character and motivations but also the tender and emotional feelings between Alex and Jessie. The sexual tension between them sizzles and their love scenes are passionate and meaningful. Their relationship is based on true feelings underneath the desire that brings them together as adults and the progress of their romance over the course of the story is wonderful to experience. Secondary characters are key to the plot of the story. Alex has four brothers (all of whom will have their own stories) and Jessie also has four brothers (who will receive stories as well). The relationships between the siblings and their parents and the friendships they share lead to many scenes filled with witty dialogue, humour, and tension. The family relationships are key to understanding the adults that Alex and Jessie have become. Overall, I found this story to be past paced, full of emotional moments, steamy love scenes, interesting and engaging characters and a heartwarming and delightful romance. I am thrilled that there will be more stories featuring these two families. 5 fabulous stars!
