Review for HARD COMPROMISE By Samanthe Beck

Nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim 
on her body and her heart. 

Compromise Me #2
Samanthe Beck
Releasing Nov 21st, 2016
Entangled: Brazen

Laurie Peterson assumes her impulsive one-night stand with sinfully sexy Sheriff Ethan Booker is the biggest surprise of the year…until her bakery burns down while she’s basking in the afterglow. It looks like her dreams are up in smoke, but then Ethan proposes a deal too tempting to resist. 

Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart.

Whew, it's hot in here! Samanthe Beck has written an oh so hot and sexy read in HARD COMPROMISE. You might want something to fan yourself with while reading this one!
     Even though Ethan and Laurie shouldn't fit, they do. Ethan is a cop, but he is from a wealthy family. Laurie had a crap childhood with a horrible excuse for a mother. As a teen, she was a wild child and Ethan,as a rookie cop, had to arrest for underage drinking. For years, he spent a lot of time thinking about her (yes, she propositioned him, but she was way too young) and keeping her out of trouble.
     Now, it has been ten years since they met. Laurie has grown up and running her new shop, Babycakes. She has had a long road getting her life together. Finally, she and Ethan stop dancing around each other and hit the sheets. Fanning alert!
     Bad thing, her bakeshop burns down and she has sunk her life into it. Enter Ethan, who offers his help by convincing her to be his fake girlfriend so that his family will stop trying to pair him up with their choice of pedigreed wealthy women he should date. It's his plan to slowly convince Laurie that they could truly be together.
     This could have been a fluffy sexfest, but Ms Beck wrote layers of depth and you couldn't help but care about Laurie and Ethan. The story is less than 200 pages, but you get to know these fun characters,especially Laurie who is again having to deal with her failure of a mother. Ethan and Laurie with their sizzling chemistry, might not have been a couple for ten years, but their hearts connected all those years ago and they have a chance for that elusive (and for them, hot! hot! hot!) happily ever after.
     I loved the first book, COMPROMISING HER POSITION, but HARD COMPROMISE surpassed it. There is a lot of spicy fire and great romance in this sexy romance series!

     She turned on less than steady legs and walked to the other side of the room, feeling the weight of his stare on her the entire time. Once there, she planted her feet hip’s distance apart, bent from the waist, and rested her forearms on the bed. “I trust this is interesting enough for you?” 

     His footsteps fueled her adrenalin. She lowered her head to the mattress, and lifted onto her toes.

     “It’s definitely a start. Hand me my belt.”

   She raised her head as a hundred imaginary feathers fluttered down her spine. 


    “My belt,” he repeated. “It’s right beside you.”


     “Give it to me, and you’ll find out.”

    If she wasn’t in the mood for this, all she had to do was say so. Booker would let it go, without question. Even knowing this, backing down felt too much like surrender. She handed the strap to him, but couldn’t help adding a caustic comment. “Who would have guessed there were fifty shades of Sheriff Booker?”

     His soft laugh stirred invisible molecules in the air around her. “I would never do anything so conventional. Besides”—he folded the belt in half and ran the edge along the back of her thigh—“I think you secretly prefer gentle.”

     “I told you before, you don’t have to be gentle with me.”

     “You’re tough, huh?” The edge of the belt tickled her skin again.

     She faced front and held her position. “That’s right.” Dammit, she was her own worst enemy.

     “Okay, tough girl. Be still.”
