The bestselling author of the Heller Brothers series stirs up a tempting cocktail of fun and seduction as a sexy SEAL-turned-bartender treats a buttoned-up scientist to a wild weekend . . . and a change of heart.
Former Navy SEAL Beck Whitcomb left a world of privilege to prove he could make his own way. Money, mansions, expensive cars—none of it could heal the loss of his older brother, or buy his parents’ love. Now, after using his trust fund to open the Conquistadors tequila bar with his brothers-in-arms, Beck has it all: good friends, fine liquor, and hot hookups. When it comes to women, commitment’s not his thing—until he gets a taste of the pretty professor who walks into his bar . . . and winds up in his bed.
Hayden Miles knows all too well that emotional decisions can lead to heartbreak, and nothing screams “bad decision” like a playboy bartender with inked biceps and a wicked smile. Still, their chemistry is off-the-charts explosive—and Hayden knows her chemistry. For once, this good girl longs to let loose. But is she willing to risk the pain to quench her thirst? With the promise of more on the table, Hayden’s eager to believe . . . before she misses her shot.

Great start to a new series
I received an ARC cop of this book for an honest review.
What do you get when you mix an ex-Navy Seal turned bar owner and a buttoned up, to serious needs to have fun heroine with tequila? This awesome book by Kelly Jamieson. This book was fun, sexy and kept my attention. I loved the characters, they were real people with real issues and real pasts that made them who they are. I loved Beck and Hayden together. They were the perfect mix of fun and serious. The truly brought out the best in each other.
Hayden is a dedicated scientist, running her own business as well as teaching. She doesn't do "fun". Beck is an ex navy seal who owns a tequila bar with his former teammates. Pretty much Beck only does "fun". Hayden's friend Carrie talks her into going to a tequila tasting which happens to be at Beck's bar.
The supporting characters were fun and intriguing and I cannot wait to read carrie's story. I recommend this book, it is a great start to a new series.
Sweet, Fun and Very Sexy
This is the first book in the new series by Kelly Jamieson and I really liked it. It was a sweet love story with some very steamy sexy scenes. Who doesn’t love a story with an extremely sexy ex-military guy and a beautiful nerdy professor!
Beck is portrayed as this hot guy player, but he shows that he really has a sensitive side that he doesn’t show anyone, only Hayden. He’s fun, generous with not only his money, but his time. He is loyal to his friends that he considers his family, as he has a very strained relationship with his parents since his brother died when they were teenagers. After he graduated from college, he joined the Navy and became a Seal. He never felt like he could please his parents and he didn’t want to work in the family business, Whitcomb Industries, and take over for his father when he retired. It was not for him. Not many people know that Beck comes from a privileged wealthy background. He looks like he belongs in a rock band, man bun, tattoos and extremely good looking. He is not into committed relationships, he just wants to keep it light, fun and sexy. Until he meets Hayden!
Hayden is a brilliant biochemist, she has her doctorate and not only runs her own company, but is on faculty at the University of California San Diego. She is working on the cure for cancer. She works all the time and her best friend wants her to get out and have fun. Hayden is not athletic in the least and is klutzy. She first meets Beck when he rescues her from falling on her butt after she runs into a post while reading her email on her phone. Hayden is dumbstruck by this handsome man and says only a few words to him and then scurries away. They meet again when her best friend Carrie gets them tickets to a tequila tasting party at a local bar/restaurant that Beck owns with his partners and Seal buddies. Hayden sees Beck behind the bar and he notices her too, but it takes him a minute to figure out it is the girl from the street, but boy did she go from a very pretty up tight business woman to a gorgeous hot woman!
They have an instant sexual attraction and their chemistry is combustible. They truly bring out the best in each other. Beck gets Hayden to loosen up and have fun and not let work rule her life. Hayden gives Beck the sense of family that she shares with Beck while taking care of her aunt and uncle. They both share the personal loss of their immediate family, Beck his brother and Hayden, her parents. As their relationship develops it goes from just having fun and hookups to both wanting more, but afraid to take that leap. You are taken on a journey of seeing how these two unlikely people make their relationship work. You see the beauty of discovery when they both realize just how special that person is by their thoughts and deeds. There is of course miscommunication and secrets kept that eventually come out and blow up in their faces, but you are just going to have to read the story to find out how it all plays out! There is so much more to the story then the little snippets I am giving you.
If you love a sweet and sexy read, then you really should give this book a try!
