Jerk of My Dreams #18

Jerk. Asshole. Douchenozzle. Admit it- you hate to love the jerks. That alpha male character who is so arrogant and rude but sexy as hell. That foul mouthed douche bag of a man who rocks your traitorous heart. We’ve all read them and we’ve all liked them to some extent. In real life you wouldn’t touch the man with a ten foot pole. But in the fictional world? Nothing can stand in the way! Everyone would be lying to themselves if they didn’t admit that the meaner the man, the further we run… Towards them! *sigh* 

That’s what this weekly meme is about- those jerky delicious men! Each Friday this meme will go up, and you can share your jerk anyway you want: review, interview, lines and quotes, giveaway of a book. However you want! All you have to do is sign up HERE and follow the linky. Any time you comment on someones post, leave your link so that person can comment back.

Assets (Balance Sheet #1) by Shannon Dermott

I LOVE a sexy Scottish accent! Kalen Brinner definitely has a sexy Scottish accent! Mmmmmmm……
Bailey Glicks has left her fiancé and run to NYC. She’s starting a new audit with a new team. She’s living with a good friend of hers. She’s starting over.
On New Year’s Eve when she was supposed to be getting married, she’s getting some action at a New Year’s Eve Party, with no-name hot hunky Scottish accent.
Kalen finds Bailey and begins a seduction that is definitely more stalker than anything! But boy is it HOT! The chemistry between Kalen and Bailey burns white hot! Kalen is just flat out HOT! OMG!  His seduction of Bailey is unbelievable.  He surprises her with the most romantic and intimate things, however stalkerish it seemed.
Kalen is a total JERK to Bailey at times. He makes demands of her and is not the most trusting of people toward Bailey. He would send her off without a word and then show up in her apartment later at night, MUCH later, to seduce her. There was plenty of angry sex in this one!
I really enjoyed the seduction of Bailey. Kalen went all out to get her where he wanted her.  I was a bit disturbed by Bailey’s acceptance of some of the things he did. They were definitely stalker material at times and she let it go without question. While on one hand it’s kind of romantic that he went to so much trouble, on the other hand it would have been very stalkerish if he hadn’t been more honorable.

We’re left with a cliffhanger. Things DO NOT end in a Happily Ever After.  Luckily I don’t have to wait long for Liabilities to come out. It’s slated for publication on July 30!
