He can read her like a book. But will he give her a happy ending?

Dawn: I’d do anything to keep my bookstore. It’s a safe place for all women, somewhere to let their freak flags fly. I call it sex-positive. The menfolk call it smut. That’s how I met Rory Parker, the local billionaire trying to shut me down on behalf of the “moral majority.” He walked in with an offer I couldn’t refuse . . . except I did. Now Rory wants to play dirty. Well, he picked the wrong bookseller. Let’s see how much support he still has after people get a load of the little movie I recorded of the two of us going at it like wild animals in my shop.

Rory: I couldn’t care less how Dawn Nolan makes her money. The only thing I care about is how much she’s making. Her bookstore isn’t the kind of upscale attraction my investors want in this sleepy little tourist trap, so it’s got to go. But when Dawn personally finds out how I treat bad girls who misbehave, she seems to enjoy it as much as I do. Now I just need to destroy the copies of that video she’s threatening to post—as soon as I stop watching it. The trouble is, when I’m with her, all I want to do is get started on the sequel.

This is one of those times when I read the description and feel like it's talking about another book. Although in this case it's more like, whoever wrote it just skimmed it. They thought they could read the book like a book without fully reading it and made assumptions.

There's a lot more to it and it's not that complicated.

It's a quick, fun and pretty hot read.
Like I said above; it's not an overly complicated story and that's perfect for readers, who like me, sometimes need something short and sweet.

I have to admit I wasn't too crazy about the characters. It's not that I didn't like them, I did; it's just that I didn't care.
Rory: the billionaire; whatever, not the first time we meet a character like him.
Dawn: the misfit, doing what she feels is right. We don't get too many of her, and maybe it's because we also didn't get to know much of her that I feel pretty 'meh' about her.

I might not have cared too much about the characters (though I wouldn't be opposed to reading more about them); but I did care about their story and what happens to them.
And what they do and where they did it.
This brought out my hopeless romantic; absolute "Yay, they love each other!"
