This is a smoking hot romance by Cathryn Fox! Leveled is the second book in the series and Jamie and Kylee's love story.
Jamie doesn't trust women especially rich ones who live off their father's money and don't take life seriously. He's back in town trying to help his family run the family business and is working on opening his own tattoo shop when he stumbles upon Kylee sunbathing.
Kylee is enjoying her much needed break at her family's vacation home before starting her high stress job in the fall at her father's law firm. Having the Owen's family redo her back deck is an added bonus because Jamie is definitely worth watching while he is working and as an added bonus he is nothing life the man that her father has picked out for her to marry.
Their attraction to one another is what draws them together, but they soon realize that there is more to them and their relationship than what is just on the outside.
I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
Wow, this was one steamy, sexy, fun and romantic read!
Kylee is spending the summer at the beach before turning her life completely over to her father and his demands for her to practice law. When she meets Jamie she decides it won’t hurt to spend a little time with a local bad boy, just this once.
Jamie has returned home to help his brothers fix the family business. His dream is a tattoo shop and while he’s working on that, deep inside he knows the idea of it was always a disappointment to his dad. He’s been burned, badly by an incident in his past and he’s learned to stay away from the rich tourist women that frequent his town. However, when pretty little Kylee comes on to him he can’t walk away
I loved Jamie and Kylee. When they were together the chemistry was off the charts. Both of them had a history of fathers not believing in them or their passions and dreams. Together they learned how to reach out and grab hold of those things that make them happy and embrace life and all the love it had to offer.
The twist was a bit expected but still well done as well as the angst it added to the end of the story. I enjoyed this book very much. I would instantly recommend it to anyone looking for a quick spicy read, that doesn’t ask more from you than for you to sit back and just enjoy.
