Breaking hearts is what wild and rebellious Mason Kincaid does best. Hit it and quit it is his motto, and with his bad boy reputation and tattoos, he doesn’t lack for female companionship. Until one hot night with the one woman he swore he’d never touch becomes an all consuming addiction he can’t kick. Katrina Sands has been his best friend for years, but now that he knows what she feels like, and tastes like, there is no going back to being just friends. Hot, dirty sex has never felt so good…or so right.



3.5 Stars

This book had it all… Unrequited love = check; Friends to Lovers = check; Smoking hot sexytimes = check; A reformed manwhore = check; A what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas hookup = check. All of these things added up to a fun, sweet and seriously sexy read.

My Thoughts

When we met Mason in the last book he was a total man whore, going after anything with a pulse. I was intrigued by his role in the brothers and was happy to get into his head and heart. He has some serious commitment issues and is ignoring his growing attraction to his childhood best friend Katrina.

Katrina has been in love with Mason for as long as she can remember. He was her savior in high school and the two have relied on each other ever since. It is getting harder and harder for her to see Mason hooking up with everyone around her and treating her as his sisterly best friend.

The pair are attending Clay and Samantha’s wedding in Vegas, with Clay planning a wild weekend and getting laid constantly and Katrina wanting to enjoy a weekend with the girls. The guys crash the ladies party while they are at Coyote Ugly. Katrina decides to let loose and dance on the bar, which sets Mason into alpha mode.

The chemistry and heat is off the charts once they give into it. What starts as a hookup quickly turns in to a friends with benefits thing while they are in Vegas. When they return home Mason realizes that he has always wanted more from Katrina, but was afraid of losing her or hurting her.

I enjoyed Mason and Kat but it felt a little rushed. Mason’s 180 from man whore to you are the only girl in the world is one of those things that always bug me a little bit. Overall I liked the story and enjoyed the banter and history between Mason and Kat. Recommended if you like your tattooed bad boy with a healthy dose of sweet along with his tortured past.

Notable Quotes

She owned his heart. She was the other half of his soul. And he never wanted to live his life without her in it.

Whether Katrina knew it or not, she was his. And he was going to do everything in his power to prove it.

He didn’t know how to do gentle or romantic. When he fucked, he was rough and hard and demanding. Katrina was the one good thing in his life, and he never wanted to taint her with his perverse need to use sex, to use her, to ease all those underling raging emotions form the past that he struggled to keep buried so he didn’t hurt anyone or anything.

They were two damaged people who’d managed to heal each other with something as simple as unconditional love. The fact that they were best friends who had phenomenal sex was a bonus.

***About Erika Wilde***

Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name?

As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates.
