NEW RELEASE ★★ Counting On You is LIVE! ★★
From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed, and Jackie Steele comes a new standalone novel.
I have everything I want.
Success. Wealth. Women…and make that plenty of those. As a filthy-rich CEO, I would say I’m pretty much close to perfection. Except for that one weakness: I’m cocky as hell, and an irresistible magnet for women.
So when one tiny mistake lands me in hot waters with the investors, I have one hell of a choice to make:
Restore my reputation…
Or risk losing my company.
I’m a man of my word and failure is not an option. Not now. Not ever. I fully intend to uphold my responsibilities.Sharing an apartment should be easy, right? And it’s only for six weeks.
That’s what I thought before I found out that my new roommate is female.
Vicky Sullivan is unlike any woman I’ve ever met.
She’s hot as sin, and crazy.
Definitely not my kind of crazy, but too hot to pass up.
There’s something about her that makes me rage with want.
I don’t like her, but obviously my dick does. And what he wants, he gets.
Living together shouldn’t be too hard…
Until my best friend challenges me to a bet…
I make it my mission to make her mine.
There’s only one problem.
I have to break…Every. Single. Rule.
And did I mention she’s completely off-limits?
It’s too late to say no.
Author’s note – Counting On You is a full-length, standalone novel with no cliffhanger.
This book surprised me – it was nothing close to what I expected…it was better. I was so certain I was going to hate Kade, the sex addict sent to rehab to save his company and career. What I didn’t expect is to discover a tender man who actually cares beneath a misplaced idea of a sex calendar and a libido the size of Everest.
Their idea of pairing polar opposites and showing how they can draw out the best in each other was brilliant! Each person is navigating their own person mess and heartache – the difference is how to they choose to handle their emotional baggage. They are drawn to each other, but neither is in a good place because of all said baggage.
“I’m not pushing you away, Vicky. But I don’t want to hurt you.
You’re too fragile for what I can give you.”
This statement really starts to peel back layers of Kade – he’s not just ego and c*ck and Vicky is not just a woman in love with love. There are a boatload of twists and surprises and the character development and growth is truly well done. Kudos to these authors for pulling off such a unique and interesting story!
