Indulge your inner vixen…
Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, fiercely loyal, uber alpha brothers about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. If dirty talk, cursing, or raw, passionate sex turns you off, the After Dark books are not for you, because everything’s naughtier after dark.
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.
Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.
Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.
LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure.
If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring.
She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep.
Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, sending her on a search for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man.
Now it’s my turn.
One night changes everything for Amanda Jenner. Tired of the boring guys who seem to ask her out, she ready to step out of her box and let her inner sex kitten out. She's stepping outside of her comfort zone, armed with a blonde wig, a mask and her How to Seduce a Man handbook, she's ready. So when she steps into the bar, she feels eyes on her and boy, is she stunned by the gorgeous man staring back at her. Well the beard and mask hide his identity - but the electricity that zooming between the two of them is off the charts.
Thing progress as the two flirt and the heat level starts to boil over. The two decide to take it to someplace a little more private but just as things start to escalate, her mystery man puts a stop to it all. Pulling back he asks to meet her the next day... confusing Amanda and her what went wrong with her plan.
When the next day come and Amanda waits for her mystery man, so many thoughts are running through her head, so when she sees her crush for the past three years walk in the door, she panics. And when Mick Bad, her boss and the one guy she hasn't been able to stop fantasizing about stops in front of her, she tries what she can to get rid of him, until she realizes that HE is her mystery man.
What she doesn't know is that Mick has had the same fantasy about the quite and beautiful Amanda and once he realized who the beauty in the mask was last night, he had to put a stop to their raunchy romp. She was worth more than quick f*ck in a bathroom. He had been thinking of that moment he would finally have Amanda and it sure wasn't going to take place in a bathroom. So he decided to give it one night. One night to get Amanda out of his system. One night to take.
What takes place next is a wild and passionate weekend that the two never thought would happen. Will the two be able to get each other out of their systems and go back to the way they were before. Or will they both be able to see beyond the seduction and into their future?
This is a hot and steamy romp of fun that you don't want to miss!
