Story Overview:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.
 


My Review:
This is a book about two people who do sex really, really well, but otherwise don't have that much in common besides their group of friends...at least that's what they think. 

As the book begins, Harlow and Finn are using one another for sex. Both of them have some really stressful things happening in their lives (although neither one of them shares that with the other) and they need the escape that they can find within one another. But as the book develops they begin to find that they really do get along well and things begin to progress in a way that neither of them EVER expected. 

I really, really liked this book. Both the back stories for both characters were really interesting and provided a great setting for the book. Finn and Harlow really don't know one another. Yes, they were married. Yes, they've had sex...quite a bit. But they really have no idea who the other person is and are unapologetic about. They are both okay with what they are doing...in fact, better than okay. But they quickly find that they are getting closer and more reliant on one another than their other group of friends...and that's a bit shocking. 

And let me just tell you...this book is hot. Finn has a bit of wild child in him and Harlow really gets off on that. They both do. But he is so careful and aware with her. I love how he treats her with such soft care when she needs it. I also really loved that everything isn't quite as it seems with him. That number confession was the best reveal in this book just because it was so unexpected.

Both Finn and Harlow are dealing with family issues and I loved all the scenes that involved them with their families. This was definitely a more family themed story rather than the friends that we've had in the past from this author duo. I liked that and it made me love both the characters more for how much they cared and wanted to take care of their famiiies...no matter what.

It was just a fantastic book and I read it from cover to cover in one sitting because I was so into the story. 

Now, I'm ready...Bring on Oliver and Lola. I cannot wait for their story because it's definitely looking like it will be an interesting one just in that they are both so clueless. I love them and their quirks. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
