New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh kicks off her new Hard Play contemporary romance series with a sizzling story that’ll leave you smiling… Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin. Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener. And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind. As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.
A review about the first books in this series.
Cherish Hard is the #1 in hard play series
Fun with great chapter titles 4 stars.
Rebel Hard is #2 in the series.
Not quite as good #1 including the chapter titles, less fun and more family angst – definite appeal for the Bollywood storyline to certain readers if not me. 3 stars.
Rock Kiss #2
Wealthy businessman, Gabriel Bishop, rules the boardroom with the same determination and ruthlessness that made him a rock star on the rugby field. He knows what he wants, and he'll go after it no-holds-barred. And what he wants is Charlotte Baird. Emotionally scarred and painfully shy, Charlotte just wants to do her job and remain as invisible as possible. But the new CEO clearly has other plans.
‘The Bishop’ was a rugby legend in New Zealand but he was injured and then this career was finished.
This book is where Gabriel Bishop goes after his rugby career is over – he goes into destroying – and rebuilding – in the stock market and company world.
Note that Gabriel is the older brother of Sailor Bishop in Cherish Hard – different series by author.
So now he has a different reputation and still not such a good one – as people only think about his destruction and not his re-building.
This is a fun romance with the usual hot scenes and well written story line from this author. She transitions well from Fantasy into Romance – or the other way round… Overall, all her books are fun to read.
