I read this series before I started this whole reviewer/blogging endeavor so I never did a formal review of this series. To say that I liked it, is an understatement. I devoured each volume and then waited in agony for the next one to be released. I'm jealous of anyone who will be reading them all at once!
Only minutes after meeting in NYC, Chloe and Max have hot sex in a club VIP room. Chloe is not one to do something so brazen, so she leaves a little embarrassed and thinking that she will never see him again. But SURPRISE! Max shows up in her hometown and what was only supposed to be one hot night, turns into a secret summer romance. Why a "secret" summer romance? Well you will just have to read it to find out.
I love Chloe and Max as a couple. Chloe is a very "by the rules" kind of person. She took on the responsibly of raising her younger sister when she was still young, so she feels she has to follow the rules in order to not only be a good role model, but because that's what people expect of her. Max is the one person who can convince to let loose and be herself.
I LOVE Max. He even made it on to my book boyfriend list: Kimmy's Book Boyfriend List - Part 3. He's sweet, caring, smart, good looking, successful and not afraid to get all Alpha in the bedroom:
“You tell me what you want from me, and I’ll always deliver, baby.” His voice was raw, and I realized that he did want me as badly as I wanted him, he was just better at controlling it. And then suddenly, his hands were gone from inside me.
“Max!” I whipped my head from side to side to get a read on him, but it was no use—I couldn’t see him anywhere. Out of nowhere, his arms wrapped around either side of me, and he rubbed massage oil all over my front. His hands slid easily between me and the table, and in a minute I was covered front and back with the oil.
He grabbed the fabric strung between my two wrists, pulling back on it so I slid further down the table a bit and his hard cock penetrated my core. He was fully seated inside of me as I let out a startled cry, but he took no mercy on me, using my bound wrists to slide me up and down the table while he slammed in and out of me.
The nerve endings inside me were on fire, sending mini shockwaves of bliss out to the rest of my body. The friction on my nipples as I moved up and down the table was almost as intense as the feel of his hard shaft breaching me.
Sounds of Max’s labored breathing and the slapping out of our bodies as they joined together in ecstasy filled the room. I’d never heard a more beautiful chorus.”
Hot right? And there is so much more to that scene too. Get the cold shower ready!!
Can we talk about the book covers for second? I don't know who the models are but they are extremely good looking and I found myself starting at them a lot. Volume 4 is my favorite. Just look at the way they are looking at each other! **Kimmy fans herself.**

F*ck and chuck. Pump and dump. Hit it and quit it. One night stand. Didn’t matter how I branded it—that’s all she'd wanted it to be. That much was clear when she left me with my pants down and my dick still out.
What she hadn’t counted on was fate intervening and our worlds colliding—again.
The day I showed back up in the life of Chloe Griffins, I knew I had to have her again. My body was hungry for another taste. Like an addict, I’d been craving another hit for months, and there she was—flesh and bone, tits and ass.
The fact that she worked for the competition should’ve been reason enough for me to leave her alone. I had a job to do that summer and f*cking Chloe wasn’t part of it. But I was like a man possessed.
I’d do whatever it took to have her again.
Fraternizing with the competition? Check.
Risking everything I’d worked so hard for? Check.
Mind-shattering orgasms? Double check.
Max Richfield made me forget myself. Forget all the reasons why I'd chosen to be alone for so long. I had goals. I needed stability. He brought chaos. I’d taken years erecting my walls. And with good reason, I would soon discover.
Now my inability to see beyond Max’s charm could cost me everything.
A summer of f*ck buddies? Something to take the edge off? I was down.
But when Chloe shows up at my hotel door, wanting to rip my head off, rather than give me head--I cared. A lot. Too much, in fact.
This is turning into more. And I can't do more.
Like the ink under my skin she's becoming permanent. Enduring. Immovable.
Was I ready to let her go though?
Not a f*cking chance.
The image was seared into my mind. Imprinted. Emblazoned. Etched.
Did I blame him for what I saw? Or myself, for allowing him the ability to cause the pain coursing through me?
Betrayal was a weapon that cut to the core—the ‘what ifs’ the infection that festered in the wound.
I’d thought we’d had roadblocks thrown in front of us before. Damn. Those would have seemed like mere speed bumps if I’d seen what was coming…
Little did I know that what was headed our way would prove to be the biggest test of all—putting impossible choices in front of us. None of which seemed to lead to a happy ending in which the two of us were together.
