He'll break all the rules…
When Eden Carver, Iowa farm girl turned NY actress, decides to seduce the sexy cop next door, she begins to wonder if she's bitten off more than she can chew.
The last thing Officer Jay Bennett wants is to cross a line with the sweet and innocent country girl--no matter how much he'd like to help himself to a nibble. Not only are they in the friendship zone, a naïve girl like Eden doesn't belong in his dangerous world.
But when she asks him to help her rehearse lines, and things go from simmer to boil, he finds himself doing the one thing he swore he'd never do. He knows he needs to walk away from temptation, but when sweet little Eden bites back, it tilts his world on its axis.
Because biting back changes everything.
Wow for a short read this book packed a lot of smoking sexy punch to it. I love friends to lovers kind story-lines, so Hold Me Down Hard fit the bill perfectly. You have Eden and Jay who have been friends and neighbors for about three years. Each, is seriously crushing and lusting after the other but neither will make a move. During one night of poker with her fellow actresses friends, they convince Eden to make the moves on Jay. Eden usually has Jay rehearsing scripts with her so Eden and the girls come up with a plan to write a specific fake script just for Jay, to get things to change from friends to lovers. Sexiness ensues and no holds bar banging happens. Handcuffs are involved and there are some exhibitionist happening in alleyways. The aggressive way these two go at the smexing, had this reader turning down the thermostat. Seriously Jay is one hot man. He’s not only smoking hot but on top of that he’s a smoking hot cop too. I love me some men in blue who know how to work it and Jay knows how to work it. Eden was lovable and definitely has a dirty side that Jay can’t resist. I like the pacing of the book. Cathryn gave me enough details to believe in their chemistry. If you are looking for a quick hot read with lovable characters definitely check this book out. I also want to say that I love this cover!
