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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Recipe for Attraction is another solid read from Brazen. If you love contemporary romance with heat, then this is definitely the book for you.
We meet Carson and Neil. They work together. Now if you know me, I love a book with a workplace romance. Only that’s where this author tricks you. This isn’t really a workplace romance at all. They actually find their connection over…wait for it…illegal street racing.
And I can’t lie. I was honestly surprised by this. A.) Because I’ve never read a romance novel about illegal street racing. B.) Because how hot does that actually sound. And C.) Neil was hot and sexy…and hot.
There’s a lot in this book I really liked. I enjoyed Carson. I found her relatable and I do enjoy a heroine with secrets in her past. It added a layer to this story that was welcomed. And I enjoyed the way her feelings for Neil were something she couldn’t really control. Even though she really fought against them. There’s something about the kind of connection you just can’t fight.
And I love a tortured hero. It’s one of my favorite things. I love the idea of a man who is willing to fight his demons for the love of a good woman. And that’s exactly what I got with this book.
Fans of contemporary romance will thoroughly enjoy this, but if you like romance with an edge, this might also be the book for you. It was an easy read, and once I got into the story, I found that didn’t put it down until the end.
This is my first book by Gina Gordon, but I’ll definitely be checking out more of her stuff.
A solid, enjoyable read.
