Jordan McAdam owns the website Need to Know where women can get the 411 on the male dating pool in D.C. When women complain about the men they are dating Jordan does everything she can to verify the claims made against them. Her best source of information is the temp agency she uses to get close to the men in question. It’s through the temp agency she meets Forest Redder, the sexy, rich bachelor who’s not listed on her site. He’s the type of guy she hates, but there’s something about him that makes her hot, hot, hot. In any case, she has no intention of getting to know him better. Until he uses his pull to get her a temp job in his company because he wants to get to know her better. Forest typically gets what he wants, but he’s never met someone like Jordan. Who will win the battle of wills?

This is a creative and decently written contemporary romance. The sexual tension builds quite nicely and when the sexy steaminess finally happens it’s woo doggy! Both Jordan and Forest have baggage they need to overcome and it’s done fairly well for how short the book is. I like Jordan, her friend Elle and Forest’s friend Wen, but it took me longer to warm up to Forest. Probably because I’m not big on the ultra alpha males. He does tone it down further into the story, so I ended up liking him quite a bit by the end. I’d like to see Elle and Wen get their HEA, maybe with each other? Hmmm…

    1. Luckily he tones it down a bit, but yeah, not a fave at all.

  3. I like alpha males, but I think there is a line where you end up rolling your eyes if they get too much

    1. He wasn't quite to that line, so you'd probably like this one. :)
