My best friend is married.
Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.

Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.

Of course I say yes.

What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone.

Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.

Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.

He always has to be the life of the party.
He’s also arrogant.
Imposing.
Rich.
And a playboy.
I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.

Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.

Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.

But after two weeks what I didn’t expect is that I’d been wrong about him.
That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.
That his arrogance is actually confidence.
And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.

So yes, I’ve misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although there are times I still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.

And I want more of him.

The question is—does he want more of me?

MY REVIEW

4.5 "Sexy Jerk turned Sexy Forever" stars!

Ever meet someone who gets on your last damn nerve? Someone who, no matter what, never leaves you with a good impression of them? Imagine being stuck with this person while babysitting your bestie's child for two weeks. Oh, the horror.

Well, Tess has always viewed Nick as a jerk. There was absolutely no love lost between them because Nick thought she was a stuck-up something or other. But he didn't really think that. He thought she was not only sexy and stunning, he knew the awesomeness that she was. Unfortunately, Tess was a judgmental tool and based her entire perception of Nick on face value. She almost cost this story its 5 star rating, truth be told. Most people who read my reviews know that I'm quite picky when it comes to the heroines I like or love or would rather pass on. This is mainly because as a woman, I find that I'm more likely to want to connect to the female lead than the male. Obviously. So when a heroine is depicted as someone who would be irksome in real life, someone who I wouldn't associate with, I'm like...


That's just me. I don't have time to suffer small or closed-minded fools. Anyhoo, if you don't believe me about Tess, Nick summed her up quite nicely:
"She's a little too uptight.
Bitchy even.
Judgmental.
Complicated."

Catch my drift?

So... in the beginning I didn't much like Tess, but towards the end, I realized that she really grew on me. I think a lot of that had to do with the way she tried to put aside her assumptions and opinions and snap judgments and have a more open mind.

I had no problem with Nick. Bash me all you want. I don't give a fluck. I didn't have a problem with him at all. He was handsome, sexy, dirty, successful, cautious, had some mommy issues, and he was most definitely multi-layered like an onion. I loved the chemistry between him and Tess and how the author allowed them to take a leap of faith with each other. This story was hot, sweet, and messily romantic and I can't wait to get to see more of these characters and get to know one of the side characters a little better. Jace is next in Big Shot.
