The first time I met her I wanted to slap her.
The second time, I knew I had to have her.
As for the third time, a gentleman doesn’t tell.
So I guess it’s a good thing I’m no gentleman … right?
Let’s get this out of the way, right off the bat: I love women.
I love the way they look. The way they smell. The way they feel. Especially the way they feel. And I’ve pretty much made it my mission to give each and every woman who shares my bed the ride of her life.
Then I met her. Bitchy as hell and completely uninterested in me. And damned if I didn’t want her. Crave her. I told myself I only wanted to tame her. That it was all about the challenge.
I never expected to break through that ice queen exterior and find the softness underneath. Never expected how wild she’d be between the sheets or the way she’d cry my name with such sincere intensity when I totally rocked her world.
Most of all, I never expected to fall for her.
But I did.
And the question is, now that I know I want her, how the hell do I go about keeping her?
Pierce doesn’t do relationships. But, the minute he mistakes Jez for his hook up he knows he needs her. Even if he wants to slap her first. Once Pierce begins to understand Jez and her problems he knows that he wants to be there for her no matter what. When things get tough will Pierce stick around for Jez or will he be like the others before him?
This was a wonderful book. A steamy romance mixed with hollywood drama and a the backlash of a teenager growing up in the spotlight. Pierce and Jez are a wonderful match. Her sassy mixed with his sexy allows for a read that will have you panting for the next page. The little bit of suspense with the angst of teenagers in the spotlight propel this story in a way a generic romance lacks. This is definitely a great read by J. Kenner. If you are looking for your next steamy beach read, look no further than Bitch Slap by J. Kenner. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
