What he wants from you will make you…Blush
Amanda Thomas is hopelessly in love with Jackson Paris, but he will never see her as anything more than his sweet and innocent bestie. After being virgin-adjacent for too long, Mandy is officially ready to move on. She wants to learn about hot, dirty sex, so she joins an online dating app where the enigmatic Mr. Dark promises to fulfill all of her wicked fantasies...
Jackson Paris has been keeping secrets from his stunning, too-innocent best friend—like forbidden sexual proclivities and his membership at the exclusive Black Rose Underground club. But Mandy has decided she needs an education—the filthy kind. As Mr. Dark, Jackson can safely give her a taste of what she wants—and deter her from pursuing more—without revealing his identity.
But in the dim, provocative atmosphere of Black Rose Underground, there are no secrets. Here, every wicked appetite is satisfied. And for the first time, Mandy will discover who her best friend really is...just in time to shock him with a secret of her own.
Each book in the Black Rose series is STANDALONE:
Bestseller Hardt (Under) burns up the pages of the kinky friends-to-lovers romance that launches her Black Rose series. Amanda Thomas has been in love with her childhood best friend, Jackson Paris, for years, but he only sees her as innocent "Mandy Cake"—or so she thinks. Really, Jackson's fighting himself to keep his hands off Mandy, convinced that she would never accept the BDSM bedroom activities he enjoys. Spurred by her sister's engagement, inexperienced Mandy decides that she's ready to embrace her inner bad girl and learn to be sexually adventurous, so she signs up for a hookup-oriented dating app. Hoping to dissuade Mandy from a path he sees as dangerous, Jackson poses as a stranger (disguised by a mask and a bad accent) and brings Mandy to the exclusive Black Rose Underground BDSM club. Jackson is convinced Mandy will bolt and reconsider using the app—but, instead, she's turned on and eager to experiment (and she's known it was Jackson all along). Hardt does a fine job of balancing heat and emotion as both Mandy and Jackson adjust to their changing relationship. This red-hot tale will have readers fanning themselves.
Worth the read
The book was really good! Definitely kept me wanting more. It did get a little bit much at the end with the constant fighting their feelings but it ended good. the ending felt abrupt like there should be more. Overall though it was a good steamy read.
I can hardly wait to continue reading Amanda and Jackson’s story. And now what will happen before Penn and Frankie’s impending nuptials.
I loved watching Jackson go from Mandy Cake , to Mandy to Amanda!!!
I didn’t want this book to end.
Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled publishing for allowing me this ARC for an honest review.
Could not put it down :)!
Thank you so much for the twists, turns, and smiles.
Can’t wait to read what’s next 😁!
