McKayla and her flamboyant best friend, Brad, just left the Hollywood scene to start their own hair and makeup salon in the little down of Great Falls.  The town has received them better than they expected and business is booming!

City councilman, Jaxson, has made his interest in McKayla clear, but he’s a little too straight-laced for her.  She likes the bad boys and she has her eyes on the surly and sexy ex-military man that co-runs the garage across from the salon, Evan.  However, Evan has his own demons to fight, demons that he doesn’t think any woman deserves to have to put up with.  Instead, he stays to himself.  However, fiery McKayla isn’t content to let him stay to himself.  She knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to do what it takes to get it!

But when danger comes to call, will Evan make it in time to save the woman he loves?

This book was included as a bonus read in the edition of Dirty Talk I received (Dirty Talk reviewed separately).  Honestly, reading over the synopsis of this story, it wasn’t one I was all that excited to read, but I really enjoyed Dirty Talk so I decided to go ahead and read this one as well.  Unfortunately, it just didn’t excite me all that much.

The characters in this book were fun and engaging.  We have the former soldier and bike riding bad boy that everyone is scared of, but does actually possess a heart of gold, if you are lucky enough to find it.  McKayla takes no prisoners.   She is wild and full of life, although I find her to be a bit too forward with Evan at times and comes off a bit slutty as a result.  Brad was a lot of fun too, although we didn’t get to see as much of his theatrics as I would have liked.

Unfortunately, I just found this book to be too predictable.  I was hoping there would be some wild twist, but there wasn’t.  It made the story read pretty flat and I found it to be kind of boring.  I’m honestly glad I didn’t spend money on it and that it was included in another story instead.  It’s not a terrible read, but just not nearly to the level of Dirty Talk.
