The last thing I expected to find in my dossier was sexy stockings, a plane voucher to London and an invitation to dance at a gentleman’s club. I’m a quiet museum curator for God’s sake. No way, no how am I going to slide down a pole for a bunch of over privileged, narcissistic men—until I see Sean Fraser, my childhood crush, enter the establishment. Since I’m no longer that overweight teen with braces and mousey hair, there is no way he’ll recognize me. Hmmm… Maybe I’ll give him a fake name—and a private dance. That ought to make him finally notice me, right?
What the hell is Kennedy Lane doing sliding down a pole in a private Gentlemen’s club? I’m not sure, and while I know she’s hands off, I want her. I’ve always wanted her. She might have been too young for me back in the day. Now, not so much. Hands off leads to hands on after a private dance, and while Kennedy spends the weekend pretending to be someone she isn’t, I know full well who she is. And I’m not quite ready to let her hang up her stockings when the show is over.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
House Rules takes the whole “the quiet ones are the naughtiest” to a whole new level.
Kennedy and her friends are playing a version of Secret Santa, agreeing to do whatever their friends set them up to do. Her surprise? Forget about her quiet museum girl persona and spend a weekend in London dancing in a gentleman’s club… And since it’s a debauchery trip she might as well get some hot kinky sex, right? So when she sees her best friend’s older brother and current former crush Sean, she hopes she can add him into the equation.
Sean can’t believe his eyes when he sees Kennedy pole dancing. Even if he hadn’t had the hots for her when they were young, he’d certainly want her after witnessing this. Well, now that she’s all grown up there’s nothing keeping him from going after her, not even Kennedy pretending to be someone else.
As usual with Ms. Fox’s stories, House Rules is one really hot, kinky read. Sean and Kennedy’s chemistry is wild, and they get it on like no other. Their connection was always there, so getting a little back story made it work even better.
Kennedy was sweet, shy but with a kinky side just waiting to be explored. Sean was one sexy, dirty talker, with some serious dominant vibes and a little bondage and discipline fetish. Nothing is OTT, and everything is off the charts hot.
I felt the focus of the story was their bedroom chemistry, but the ending didn’t really click for me (which I found completely surprising as I’m all about insta-foreverness stories).
If you’re in the mood for some filthy sex, great chemistry and a fun, quick read, House Rules is definitely one to keep in mind.
