Emma is super pretty, super smart, and super rich. So WHY is she kidnapping the billionaire she just bought in the bachelor auction?
Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson, she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl, I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.
And then I disappeared.
But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.
My point is...I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.
It’s been 13 years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.
But it’s kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.
Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars, private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after that proves...sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.

I can't read to read the next one in this series. Highly recommend this series and J.A. Huss.
In the story it was nice to find a strong female who isn’t completely incapacitated by her hormones when dealing with her attractive male adversary. That alone kept me trying to push through to the end but it wasn’t enough when Huss began to set up the plot for the next books with what promises to be a contrived and absurd premise.
The characters aren’t sufficiently interesting and there isn’t enough connection with any of them to care what happens next.
Emma and Jesse have a past that Emma remembers clearly, Jesse not so much. Jesse is one of three Boston brothers. In his youth, he was spoilt, rich and arrogant. Although he has cleaned up his act, Emma still remembers the old Jesse and is wary. Emma has grown to be a take-charge boss. She is no longer the sweet innocent girl of eighteen. Jesse is still rich, funny, sexy and a bit of a smart arse. He makes it hard for Emma to resist.
I love this pair and their competition of dominance. I had a smile permanently on my face during the first half of this book. The clever banter and one-upping each other made for a fun read.
The story developed into more than a dramatic comedy. The mystery and tension created as the plot evolved lead the way for future books in the series. This story isn't a cliff hanger as such, but it certainly left me with more questions than answers!
I want more of the Boston boys. I want more well written and strong heroines to keep them on their toes and I want them all now!

When they were teenagers, Jesse Boston and Emma Dumas met in Key West. Jesse was a troubled young lad, chasing after the ladies whilst constantly drunk and high. She wasn't the only one that Jesse had a one-night stand with before walking away silently, as he was a player. Emma formed a group with three other women when Jesse left them the same weekend, and they went on to become the most successful multimillion-dollar makeup designers. Jesse inherited family wealth. He was the youngest of the Boston brothers and was frequently featured on the front of tabloids for various reasons. Emma has always maintained tabs on Jesse's plans for retaliation against her for treating her so poorly. 13 years later these women turned into kickass self made rich women with a revenge plan. . The player gets played, drugged and kidnapped. To teach Jesse a lesson he’ll never forget!!
After the retribution is served, Jesse insists on going on a date with Emma. She was never merely a badge of honour for him. Every detail of that summer is still fresh in his mind, and he intends to demonstrate to her what she has been missing since he last saw her.
So, when I started this book, I thought it was going to be a rom-com - 4 friends and business partners, planning a kidnap of Jesse Boston, a rich, sort of playboy. But Jesse is not the playboy the 4 girls were all played by 13 years previous.
These ladies are strong, independent woman. Jesse's series of one night stands 13 years ago was what united these women. Now they are rich and successful, and when this opportunity arises for revenge, they take it.
But then the story changes, and we're led in a slightly different direction. And finally we're confronted by another twist, a mystery that just leaves you with a whole pile of questions. So, to get those questions answered, you'll have to keep reading series. But this is what I love about JA Huss's books - the mystery, suspense and plot twists. There's a bigger story, that links the characters. I'm looking forward to Joey's storey.
If you want a different kind of romance that's hot, fun and funny then READ THIS BOOK NOW
It's all there in abundance. When I first started the book, I wasn't sure which direction the story was going to go in. I will be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it, because of the constant bickering between Jesse and Emma. Then it all changed. The story started taking shape. The characters settled and the past was no longer an issue. Then the mystery that will run throughout the series was introduced and BOOM I was up all night absorbing every word!
I am looking forward to getting to know each of Jesse and Emma's brothers.
