Barrett: As a former pro football star, I’m used to playing the field. After injuries cut my NFL career short, my second act as a broadcaster ended on live television when a hot mic picked up a little verbal . . . indiscretion. But this latest publicity stunt might just land me back on top—much to the chagrin of Catarina Everhart, the prissy, beautiful journalist who’s been assigned to date a bad boy (i.e., me) and write about it. Catarina swears I’ll never touch her, let alone kiss those full lips of hers. Based on our chemistry, I’m not buying it. . . .
Catarina: Barrett Fox seems to be doing everything in his power to make me hate him. The cocky egomaniac is infamous for his bad behavior, and now, thanks to my boss’s harebrained schemes, he’s apparently my problem. As one fake date leads to another, I start to see a different side of Barrett. He’s close with his family. He does volunteer work. And, okay, he kisses like a dream. Am I really dating Barrett Fox? Or is he playing me? Because suddenly I’m risking my reputation—and my heart.
Usually, in books about a bad boy, he is reformed. He has seen the error of his ways, or at least he does so rather quickly so you can like and connect with him as a reader.
Barrett. Not so much. He's a jerk. A grab the waitress, say rude things to everyone, show up when he darn well pleases jerk.
I loved him anyway.
Barrett and Catarina have an instant spark, and a connection. The problem? She is dating someone else, and is assigned by her magazine to also date Barrett. Something Barrett has little to no issue with, and really, that is the first problem between them.
The others are their attraction, the fact that they work together, and the fact that he can be a complete ass.
Their chemistry was fantastic, and in an enemies to lovers story, you have to be willing to believe they are enemies. This worked.
I know I have heard there are some reviews for this one that say he is too much of a jerk, but, he really wasn't...he was himself. And, you like him by the end. I promise.
I recommend this title.
