The first time I met her I wanted to slap her.

The second time, I knew I had to have her.

As for the third time, a gentleman doesn’t tell.

So I guess it’s a good thing I’m no gentleman … right?

Let’s get this out of the way, right off the bat: I love women.

I love the way they look. The way they smell. The way they feel. Especially the way they feel. And I’ve pretty much made it my mission to give each and every woman who shares my bed the ride of her life.

Then I met her. Bitchy as hell and completely uninterested in me. And damned if I didn’t want her. Crave her. I told myself I only wanted to tame her. That it was all about the challenge.

I never expected to break through that ice queen exterior and find the softness underneath. Never expected how wild she’d be between the sheets or the way she’d cry my name with such sincere intensity when I totally rocked her world.

Most of all, I never expected to fall for her.

But I did.

And the question is, now that I know I want her, how the hell do I go about keeping her?

Years ago, Pierce Blackwell suffered the ultimate bitch slap at the hands of a woman he loved and from that day on, he vowed to never allow another woman that kind of power, trading relationships in for one-night stands, keeping the expectations confined to what happens in the bedroom and nothing else. Hook ups were all Pierce was interested in until he was bitch slapped again…this time in the best and worst way possible…by one alluring and definitely dangerous beauty. And, even though her name implies she’s up for certain “no strings” activities, this hook-up doesn’t go according to plan; in fact, it upends Pierce’s controlled and unemotional game plan when it comes to women and puts him in a position to either change his ways or lose any chance he might have had with a woman who is both challenging and intriguing at the same time.

Bitch Slap is told strictly from Pierce’s perspective, so readers take this lust filled journey with him, witnessing his conflicted feelings about Jez and relationships and wondering what he plans to do as we see him breaking his own rules and slowly changing his view on what he wants from women…or at least this one woman who has gotten completely under his skin.

Pierce and Jez’s story is a fast-paced read that illustrates the complications of young stardom and the lengths family members go to in order to protect those they love. This is definitely a lust at first sight situation that has the potential to develop into more, but only if Pierce is willing to make an exception to his interaction with the opposite sex and if a plan is developed that allows Pierce to do his job while also taking a chance on having something worthwhile with Jez despite the fact that they live in different states and have trust issues galore.
