She’ll go to any lengths to keep his demons at bay…

Bad boy Neil Harrison may have sexy body and an even sexier smile, but there’s no way in hell architect Carson Kelly is falling for the elusive bachelor. For starters, he’s her boss, and getting intimately involved with the infuriating alpha male could be a career-killer. And secondly, he’s battling personal demons in one of the most dangerous ways possible: illegal street racing. After a friend’s tragic death years ago, Carson swore she’d never get involved in that life again.

Neil knows Carson’s keeping secrets and he’s determined to uncover all of them…even if he has to seduce them out of her. But as their antagonistic work relationship ignites a passionate affair, Carson must decide if protecting Neil from his need for speed is the perfect outlet for her own restless desire, or if they’re on a one-way path to destruction.

The next book to be reviewed as part of my Clearing the Backlog Challenge and the first for Birthday Thursday is Gina Gordon’s November 2013 release, Recipe for Attraction.

This is the second story in the Madewood Brothers series, about four foster brothers. The tag line on Gina’s website describes the series as follows:

Four foster brothers struggle to break free of their shadowy pasts while cooking their way into the hearts of the women they love….

Food and sexytimes do go so well together, don’t they? Comment on this post for a chance to win a digital copy of Recipe for Attraction.

Here are my thoughts on Recipe for Attraction:

Recipe for Attraction is Neil’s story. The eldest, the first of the brothers to come under the protective wings of Vivian Madewood.

While I enjoyed the book, and Gina Gordon, you do the sexy bits well,  there was just something missing for me that would have made it hit the spot.

As I said, the chemistry between Neil and Carson was incredible and even when they know it’s a bad idea, that connection just keeps drawing them back in towards each other. The sexytimes were never out of place in the story.

They’ve been butting heads for some time, and as you know, the minute the pot boils over, BAM!!

The more I thought about it as I was writing this review, it was the reasoning behind their deciding to sleep together first off that I didn’t quite get.  I’m not going to get into what this reasoning was, because you should still read the book, but it seemed a tiny bit flimsy to me.

Other than that, Recipe for Attraction is a hot read, and another fantastic release from the Entangled Brazen line. I am going to go back and read Jack’s story, Recipe for Satisfaction – and after hints from this book, I cannot wait to read Cole’s story – boy I hope his heroine is Penn.
