Omg! Romantic. Passionate. Forbidden.
This book will make hearts and Kindles melt!!!
Staci Hart managed to surprise me with this book! Refreshing storyline and characters that will warm hearts.
Annika is a toughened television producer. She learned from early on that she has to do her job the best way she can and than emotions do not mix in television industry.
Het newest project? A reality tv show about tattoo artists; particularly a tv show on Joel.
Joel is not a man that Annika would ever notice. He is cocky, over confident, tattooed and…hairy. He is also coming on to her quite strongly. Her response? She is disgusted and utterly mad with his boldness…Or isn’t she?

I had requirements, such as: clean cut, ambitious, professional, refined.

He was a fantasy, not a real prospect.

Joel doesn’t need a serious relationship. His bad past experience with his ex-wife has left a sour taste in his mouth and the only thing he wants is a no strings attached affair and Annika captivates him.
The problem? She doesn’t seem keen to the idea and she makes it perfectly clear. Still, there is something there and nothing can stop it. Attraction? Lust? Whatever it is they will both risk everything to figure it out.

Loved the progression of the story. The premise intrigued me and the execution was perfect. The push and pull relationship between our two heroes had me at the edge of my seat. There was passion, complexity and emotions that made the book fascinating; a real page turner.
Joel will melt your heart! There is real book boyfriend material there. Annika was strong and determined.

The romance? Sizzling and at times filled with angst! Loved it. I highly recommend it.

5 Hairy Stars!!!
