Summary (cr: goodreads)

The fighting was just foreplay...

Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can't stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich familys charities. He's a rough and tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way. 

Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden's non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it wont be the last, as far as Brent's concerned. 

Hayden has a secret, though. Her father's company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden's marriage to the CEOs wealthy son can secure the deal. If she's to protect her family, she'll have to forget Brent. And he has no intention of being forgotten. 

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Line of Duty series: Protecting What's His, His Risk to Take, Officer Off-limits

This story is like a spin-off of the last book in the Line of Duty series. It centers around Story and Daniel's best friends: Brent and Hayden. This was one of your typical hate turned into attraction and more. Hayden is the rich girl who unwillingly becomes friends with 2 of Daniel's best friends Brent and Matt. Although she somewhat have this sense of friendship in Matt she hated and got intrigued by the explosives expert Brent. They got to pass the hurdle of having a difference in social statuses and turning their attraction and sexual tension into something more. Once again, the formula is there though what I liked in this book is that Brent-Hayden banter going on. New nicknames are coming up: Duchess and Florence though the latter got me laughing especially the 'singing the Beaches theme song part'. So I guess the next book of the series is about Matt, the third of the group.

Till the next read...
