Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup. 

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?


Listen to two clips from the audiobook from HIT THE SPOT, narrated by Sebastian York and Kate Russell



Tori slapped the counter and gained everyone’s attention when she started yelling, “I did not run you over, Jamie! Jesus Christ! Quit spreading lies about me!”

“It ain’t lies if it's true!” I yelled back, glaring at her.

A laugh bubbled in her throat. She tilted her head and stuck her hand on her hip. “Please. I'm sure you're still able to bang everything with a pulse, as usual, which means you’re fine. Get over it, and grow some balls. I cried less when I watched Bambi the first time.”

“Who's hungry?” Syd asked nonchalantly, moving behind her friend to round the island and stand near the stove.

I ignored her question because, what the fuck? Grow some balls?

“I gotta pair, babe,” I told Legs, reaching down and palming my shit. “You should know since you've been all up on ’em the past nine months.”

She rolled her eyes. “You're disgusting.”

I felt my mouth twitch.

And that was when, for some fucked up reason, I reverted back to my old ways with Tori Rivera, forgetting all about how much I fucking hated her and instead going full-on, hell-bent determined to get an admission out of that smart-ass mouth.

“You want it,” I countered, tipping my chin up.

She wasn’t expecting that. No more than I was. It threw her off.

Her shoulders pulled back and her lips parted.

Then, maybe to cover her tell, or maybe she didn't have control over what was flying out of her mouth either, I didn't know, but she brought her other hand to her hip, glared at me with heat flashing in her eyes, tipped forward, and shot back with attitude, “You want it.”

Well shit. This was new. Legs was challenging me and she was doing it flirting. There was no doubt in my mind.

“Sorry, babe,” I said, keeping the smirk and letting go of my junk. “Not interested. I told you yesterday, I’m done waitin’ around. But you?” I pointed my beer at her. “You’ll be beggin' for it before the month is up. Just watch.”

“Fat chance,” she snapped. “I wouldn't sleep with you if my life depended on it.”

“Wanna bet?”

“Bet what?”

“What's going on right now?” Syd called out, but I wasn't pausing to answer her.

I smiled at Tori, then gestured between us, explaining, “First one to break and come crawling to the other person for sex, loses.”

“Are you serious?” She laughed, not in amusement but in disbelief.

“Yeah, I’m serious,” I answered.

“You want to bet me that I'll want to have sex with you before you try and have sex with me?” she questioned, moving her finger between us. “You, the guy who has been hitting on me for nine straight months and has been rejected for nine straight months? You seriously think I'll not only want to have sex with you, but I'll beg you for it? Is that what I just heard?”

I nodded slowly. I had this in the bag. “A rule. No fuckin’ anyone unless it's each other.”

Her eyes bugged.

“And no masturbating either,” I added, raising my beer and using it to gesture. “Since we both know when you do it you’re thinkin’ about me, and if you're that fuckin’ horny you need to rub one out or you'll fuckin' explode, you can come to me, Legs, beg, and I'll put that fire out for you.”

I feel like I've been waiting forever for Jamie's book, though in actuality, two months should have been a breeze. The anticipation was soaring after being introduced to him in Four Letter Word. I've said this in past reviews for this author and I'll say it again. I'm not typically a big fan of asshole heroes, but as long as they're redeemed in the end I can get along with them. We get a crystal clear picture of him in book one. Jamie is cocky as hell, confident, and nothing if not persistent. But would he be able to prove to Tori (and me) that he was much more than his manwhore reputation?

He was cocky. He was unashamed. He was over-the-top pigheaded and spoke like a Neanderthal wielding a club. And he was beautiful. It sucked. Seriously.

Tori has been badly burned by a man, so badly, that she's not looking for one to complicate things at this point in her life. And certainly not a man who is known for his lack of respect towards relationships. Since the day they met, and he hit on her even after knowing she wasn't single, she lost all respect for him. And the battle of wills had begun. What was great with this couple was that Jamie makes it pretty crystal clear early on that he's in it for the long haul with her. She may be a conquest, but once he captures her, he doesn't plan on disappearing any time soon. The trouble is making her believe in that.

After months of relentless pursuit and daily "loser specials" served by her at the restaurant where she works, she still isn't wavering. Attracted? Yes. Who wouldn't be? He's a hot, successful, professional surfer. He's a great friend, and he's wicked charming. But she's not stupid enough to get burned twice. Tori had a great head on her shoulders. She matched him in stubbornness and in sheer competitiveness. This is why, when he throws his challenge out on the table it could have been anyone's game. She just doesn't realize that he's willing to play dirty (lordy does he play dirty), and he's playing for keeps.

Jamie took what he wanted. He didn’t say please, he said now. And worse, he knew whatever he was asking for you wanted just as bad as he did.

The build up between these two was absolutely scorching hot, and I knew from page one that the end result could be nothing but explosive. And boy, was I right. Daniels always knows how to crank up the heat, but I can honestly say that this is one of her hottest couples I've read to date.

That being said, as much as I loved many aspects of the story, I can't say this was a five star read for me. Jamie's crazy accusations toward her in the beginning of the book led to their highly entertaining bet. But I must admit, that I wasn't too thrilled with his attitude toward her over the car incident. Not only that, but his hatred toward her was dropped inexplicably in the blink of an eye which confused me. Then there was the timeline of their feelings. They went from 9 months of disgust, to three weeks of being together, to I want to move in with you and have your babies.

However, I can't complain all too much. This was still a solid read despite my issues and I will be reading every book in this series -it's already a done deal.

“I’d do crazy shit for this,” I told her, staring deep into her eyes as my fingers curled around her neck. “I’d burn the whole fuckin’ world down for you, you know that?”
