Synopsis from Goodreads:

It’s all about the misconceptions or so it seems…

When Michael (Mike) Withers relocated to Jacksonville, taking over as Withers International‘s CEO in an effort to be closer to his sister and her new family, he never imagined finding himself at a crossroads.

Burned by his ex-fiancée, Mike traded in his dream of a house with a white picket fence and a family of his own and submersed himself in work and entertaining the occasional lady, even if the woman in question worked for him.

Was he a player? Hardly. But Nicole (Nikki) Baxter wouldn’t believe the truth even if it hit her between the eyes. The woman claimed that once a player, always a player.

Compelled to prove her wrong, games begin which Mike is quick to realize could lead him down one of two roads: heartache or the life he had desired once but had resolved to quit chasing.

Maybe he’d given up too early?

Maybe his ex hadn’t really been the one?

And maybe happiness lay in the form of a feisty, argumentative, tiny package with tight skirts and an ability to turn any argument into foreplay?

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Decevito had me captivated from the first page of this one. Her low key yet intricately crafted descriptions invite her readers in. The excitingly suspenseful storyline will keep you there. She mixes the best of suspense, romance, and animosity together in an extremely unique yet well put together package. This is definitely a sassy novel. The playfulness of this story makes it even more fun. It is also intense on many levels.

Before I even begin with the characters I should admit that the mal lead was one of my favourite characters in the series coming in to this novel. Decevito didn’t disappoint me with this one bit. He continued to grow into one unforgettable man. This story is very personal for him. You get right down to the nitty gritty of who he is and get to know him inside and out. Being told from his POV, this story gives a lot of insight into who he is. Now, that’s not to say that he overshadows the female lead. She is just as well developed, if in a somewhat different manner. You really get to know them both and although they aren’t perfect, they are perfect for each other. She rounds this all out with a brilliant supporting cast who make you feel like you’re in the middle of a real family.

Decevito is quickly becoming an author who will stand out in a crowd. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this sinfully sweet story to anyone.
