A Sexy Flirty Dirty Standalone RomanceF*ck being good. When you’ve been screwed over by Mr. Wrong, let a Spectacular Rascal show you how good it feels to be bad. My best friend and boss at Magnificent Bastard consulting—get revenge on your ex or your money back—is the smooth, successful New York businessman type. But me? I’m the other guy—the one you don’t bring home to mama. The tattooed, rough-around-the-edges, 100% primal badass. I won’t pull out your chair, sweetheart, but I will pull your hair.
I’ve got what it takes to make sure your dangerous dick of an ex thinks twice before he knocks on your door again.
Or I thought I did, until I meet my latest client: Catherine Jones, a.k.a. Polka Dot Panties. Former college running partner, sexiest woman I’ve ever almost de-virginized, and the only girl I’ve never been able to get out of my damn head.
Now my one-that-got-away is looking up at me with those big green eyes, daring me to take on an ex as dick-ish and dangerous as hers.
Well, you know what they say—it’s all fun and games until you’re making out on top of a mobster’s limousine.
Soon Catherine and I are in deep. We’re on guard, on the run, and on top of each other every chance we get. But outsmarting her mobster ex is the least of my worries, especially when I start thinking our falling hard act isn’t an act at all.
But after all this time, can a guy from the wrong side of the tracks find his forever with the sweet and sexy polka-dot-pantied girl next door?
Warning: SPECTACULAR RASCAL is a stand-alone erotic romance told from the hero’s point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of dirty talk.
Aidan Knight, Bash Prince’s bestie, and recently recruited co-bastard at Magnificent Bastard Consulting, could not be more different than his friend. This tall, tattooed drink of water is the guy guaranteed to strike fear into the heart of exes everywhere in his quest to right romantic wrongs. When Cat Jones, Aidan’s college friend, shows up looking for his help in getting rid of a dangerous boyfriend, he’s ready to bow out faster than you can say ‘conflict of interest.’ Before too long, though, he’s all in, and over his head…
With as much love as I have for MAGNIFICENT BASTARD, it was pretty much a given that Aidan would have his own place in my heart. I mean, there’s plenty of room there for Lili Valente’s guys, and I’d already met and was intrigued by Aidan. Hot, tall, tatted, bearded, what wasn’t to love? And, after all, he’d already proved his mettle by showing his, erm, assets in MB, so, yeah, color me a fan.
Whereas MB was a quirky, lighthearted romp of a story, there’s a little bit of a darker edge to SPECTACULAR RASCAL. Because, wise guys. And there is no better guy for the job of freeing Cat from the clutches of her crazy ex than Aidan. He’s invested in all the best ways, caring, loyal, and smart, and, yeah, sexy as all get-out.
Cat is just as badass as Aidan in her own way. She’s definitely got baggage, but has managed to rise above it. She can more than hold her own, and is the perfect foil for Aidan. Reading the letters exchanged between Cat and Aidan back in their college days had me laughing out loud (I mean, really, how could I not love banter between people nicknamed Curved For Her Pleasure and Polka Dot Panties?!), and it is clear even then that these two would find their way back to each other.
Lili has managed to win me over yet again (no surprise, really) with this book. Besides the swoony Aidan and kickass Cat, seeing Bash and Penny again, along with Shane, Aidan’s folks, and the inestimable Fifi, SPECTACULAR RASCAL is a story that goes right up there on my list of favorites. 5+ sweet, sassy, spectacular stars for this one. Ya done good, lady.
