Cade's always taken risks...

Cade takes cares of his sick younger sister by doing what he does best--cage fighting and starring in adult movies, his newest harebrained moneymaking scheme designed to pay for his sister's growing medical bills. But when his latest gig finds him admitted to the ER sporting an erection from hell, thanks to the little pill given to him by the director, he can't get the pretty little nurse who treated him out of his head, even though he knows she's so far out of his league it should be illegal.

Alexa's always played it safe...

Tired of being pigeonholed as the sweet, innocent one, hardworking nursing student Alexa has been looking for ways to break out of her Goody Two-shoes image. When her friend suggests the outlandish idea of losing her virginity to the sexy and sure-to-be-skilled porn star, Alexa is mortified. But then when Cade refuses her proposition, she finds herself pissed off and embarrassed. When she tracks him down to give him a piece of her mind, she isn't prepared for what she finds. Watching him care for his little sister tugs at her heart, and suddenly it's no longer just about losing her virginity, but about helping Cade. Because Lord help her, she might actually be falling for a porn star...


  • No way

    By Reebeel
    The story line was good but Cade got off way too easy with Lex after what he did ... hate when the writer makes the leading lady a pushover for love .. I mean I get it being in love and all that but come on .. pushing ones face in the mud and the other person gets away with it is just annoying and a bit boring ... "if it was the other way around I wouldn't be ok with it" ... that's it?!? That's all he has to say about it and Lex takes him back? Blah ... some books are just a hit and miss with this writer ... come on readers do more reviews to give other readers a chance to save their money!
  • Ehhh...

    It was an okay read. Nothing special about it. It's an okay book if you're bored and are looking for something to do, but it isn't something I would re-read. The author had such a creative concept. I felt like they could've done something much better and it was really a let down. The characters were kind of boring at times. I feel like if you're only going to have a few characters I would hope for them to be memorable or interesting but not one of these characters were that (except for maybe Cade's little sister. If even). I found Alexa to be even annoying at times *spoiler alert* especially with her dramatic little faint at the coffee shop. This book just really didn't do it for me.
  • Was this written by a 22 year old?

    By Merrie29
    Story wrapped up way too quickly. No way a country club girl gets together with a guy like Cade and the fact that he did porn movies doesn't get out. Reads like it was written by a character the same age as the female lead, with an immature view of the world. I should have known with the premise but it was free so I gave it a try.
  • Just my opinion

    By LDiTillo
    All in all a good book, but I felt that it lacked climax (no pun intended! 😉) it needed more drama- the kid being his, some dramatic event from her past, etc; to keep the story interesting and me on my toes. As it is it's ur average romance storyline; Change character and city names, occupations, etc., and you've got a book that's already been written dozens of times- just with different titles.
  • Good read

    Quick read, likable characters.
  • Loved it SO MUCH !!!!

    By Romancejunkie
    This is a must read. I was glued to this story from the first couple of pages pretty quickly. The writing, the story line, the characters, all of it was ridiculously addictive. I couldn't put it down. And I can't wait to read Ian and Mackenzie's story. I'm downloading it now. If I could of gave it more stars I would of. I've read several of her stories and I've gotta say, she is my new favorite written. She never has let me down and I always want more from her.
