Spencer Dumas is an asshole, and he’s fine with that.
As the CEO of Dumas Industries, the billionaire playboy couldn’t care less what people think of him. He’s got money, power, prestige, and plenty of female attention to keep him satisfied. In fact, he wants for nothing, except possibly the one thing his wealth and privilege won't allow: a life of his own.
Kayla O’Connell is a bitch and proud of it.
Ask anyone in Pine Ridge and they’ll be happy to bend your ear with tales of her terrible deeds. Kayla’s the first to admit she’s made some mistakes, but unlike everyone else, she’s moved on. All she wants now is to live her life in peace, without giving the gossip mongers anything else to talk about.
Staying under the radar isn't hard - until she crosses paths with the corporate bad boy at an exclusive island resort. She knows she shouldn't, but there's no denying the instant and powerful sexual attraction between them. Being so far away from home, they can indulge their darker sides and do wicked, wicked things. No one ever has to know.
It wasn’t supposed to mean anything. It was only supposed to be a one-time thing, never spoken of again. After all, villains don’t deserve happy endings.
… do they?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I loved, loved, LOVED the idea of two of the bad guys in a series getting their own happily ever after. Spencer and Kayla are two baddies in the Callaghan Brothers series, and in Two of a Kind, they find their perfect match in each other.
Kayla is working as a travel agent, sent to check out a new and exclusive “adults only” resort. Spencer is checking that his first solo venture is working smoothly. One look between them is all it takes for their attraction to light up, and not one to let an opportunity to have a beautiful woman, Spencer cranks the heat up.
While Kayla knows who Spencer is, and she’s aware that in normal circumstances he’d be totally out of her reach, she decides to indulge in their chemistry and the promise of a sexy bad boy.
Let me tell you one thing right now, this book is smoking hot. Their time together is off the charts sexy, and boy does Spencer know how to handle himself.
I must confess that I’ve read the Callaghan stories far enough back in time to not quite remember how bad Kayla and Spencer had been. What I loved about this story is that while we get reacquainted with both their bad deeds, we get the chance to see them from another perspective. Neither of them excuses their behavior, they even admit to having made mistakes and are repentant of their actions. That said, there are reasons behind their respective personalities, and while still on the bitchy and assholeish side we learn to love them in spite of it as there is more to them than meets the eye.
“Now that she had come to terms with things, she was feeling pretty possessive about Spencer Dumas and his magical unicorn dick.”
If you are worried that the bad guys are not likable enough to enjoy their story, let me assure you there’s no need to. Both ended up charming me and I couldn’t begrudge them their HEA.
Ms. Zanders has truly surprised me with this sexy, fun and unexpected delight that was Two of a Kind.
