Every girl needs three things
 1.  A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.
 Meet Cooper
 My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.
“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.
“Did I just what?”
She squints at me.  “You know.”
“Do I?”
“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”
I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”
“So you tasted me?”
My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”
“I can’t.”
“The day after then?”
She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile.
“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

2.  A best friend to talk about him to.
 Meet Sadie

“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”
“How was his office?”
“Really?  That’s what you want to know.  Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract?  How was his office?”
“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”
I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass.  “His office was beautiful.  Sleek, overlooking the city.  It oozed power.”
“Nice.  Bet he fucks like he owns you.”
The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.
“Go on,” Sadie prods.
I don’t continue immediately.
“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?”  My best friend smirks knowingly.
“Shut up.”  I pause.  “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
“Well, him.  Obviously.”
“I wish it were that easy.”

3.  A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.
Cooper – behind closed doors.
 “You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet.  Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them.  When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen.  You know why?  Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good.  Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically.  Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute.  So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy.  Now let’s put the rest of this behind us.  Do you want to be with me tonight?”
After that prelude, I nod my head fast.  I’m no fool.  Who wouldn’t?

My Review: 5 stars 

Cooper is a no strings attached kind of guy, he’s all business and has no time for long term attachment’s. Until he sets his eyes on Kate, he immediately has a reaction to her that he never could have expected. 
Kate has priorities; she has responsibilities that no one can understand but her. She made a decision to go on a reality dating show and do her best to win the grand prize. Not for the love of a lifetime but for the love of her family, her mother and brother need her help the show is her only hope. She never planned to meet Mr. Right in the midst of being in the game. However, she did and now she has a choice to make can she push through and win the game while still keeping the man who has managed to steal her heart. Or will she lose it all. 
“If you love someone set them free” For me that was the theme of this book from the beginning. Cooper finds himself inexplicably falling for the beautiful Kate. She breaks all his rules; he wants her to stay in his bed in his arms every day and night. This is not his usual reaction to a woman. However, Kate is different and he senses that from their first witty banter during a friendly game of cards one night. Cooper starts out as a conceded, arrogant Alpha male type, being all bossy all the time. He takes what he wants, he doesn’t allow for fate or lucky. Kate on the other hand is the opposite, she believes in the luck of the draw. Kate manages to bring him to his knees makes him look at himself and his life in a completely new way. I loved their banter and their chemistry was great. The sex scenes were steamy, totally off the charts sexy. 

Flynn the rock star bachelor of the reality show threatens to come between Cooper and Kate but their love is too strong. Sadie, Katie’s best friend was the comic relief, she was a hoot for sure, and every girl needs a Sadie in her life. Miles, Cooper’s brother is a real jerk. I still found myself interested in his story, maybe another book. This is a great tale of love found, love lost and love found again, it flowed nicely and the characters were fun, real and likeable. Next up is a book for Flynn the heartbroken rocker I look forward to his story. This was the first book of Vi Keeland’s for me I have others I purchased in my e-reader I plan to read those soon. Definitely recommend this read you will truly enjoy it. 

Received and ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
