#SterlingShore #MakeMe #CMOwens
I'm a mature and very pragmatic person, whom others like to call boring.
At least I was...until Harley came back into town...
What do you do when a girl comes back for some petty revenge against you and seduction is part of her game?
You pretend to be a millionaire dom, of course.
Yeah...it sounded better in theory. My execution keeps ending up in awkward messes, and this game between us gets even messier when I learn more about Harley. She's easy to fall for, even though she's hazardous as hell.
What happens when all the games end?
One simple little goal turns into one giant disaster.
On the surface, Dale Sterling seemed like an a*****e from my past; the typical arrogant guy who boulders through life and anyone in his way. So a little revenge seemed plausible, considering what he did to me once upon a long time ago. In hindsight, it was immature. But revenge has kept me on top of the world since I stopped being on the bottom of everyone's shoes, so I make no apologies for my immaturity.
But Dale is weirdly kinky...
Everything is going fine...until it gets real. Now the guy I wanted to humiliate is the same guy I'm begging my heart not to stupidly fall in love with.
Unfortunately, my heart tends to be stubborn.
*Can be read as a stand-alone

Worth Every Minute!
I was never really attached to Dale, and I will admit that I was not too enthused about this book coming out, but C.M Owens did it again. Everything she writes is gold! Dale and I may have had a bad first impression, but he is one of my top Sterling Boys now. I freaking LOVED this story. EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK!
I read the blurb and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the book, I just knew it was going to be fun.
The book starts off in the past with the guys in school. It was here that I fell in love with Harley her story is one that many will relate to. I adore her, she reminds me of myself at school geeky and awkward and unsure where she fits in.
She returns home years later with one thing on her mind revenge now I know you should turn the other cheek but I was cheering her on. From the start, you can feel the chemistry with Dale but because of the past she's wary but he's quite determined. The whole pretend Dom had me laughing out loud, those guys are nuts.
There are some misunderstandings, some horrible people her Dad is the worst I wanted to punch his lights out but I loved when she finally gets friends that stand by her she becomes part of the Shore family.
We get to catch up with the guys and get some hints for the next book which I can't wait for.

Dale sterling. Ok so have you read the other books? No? You should go do that simply because this series is amazing but this can work as a stand-alone. But let me tell you, you slowly want and need to know more about Dale. And his book is everything I wanted it to be. Also, Harley is definitely the one to give him a run for his money. This series is seriously one that stays with you no matter how much time passes and it makes it easy to pick up the newest release with ease. The author makes these characters stick with you. I don't want to give away any secrets because Dale is so mysterious so my best advice is to go read his book and if you haven't yet go read all the books before this one. You will thank me later. This book was low on the angst and I felt it was a great blend of reality and the sterling glitz we all love. It flows right along and before you know it you're done with the book and wondering when the next one will release.

Are you a closet nerd out for revenge?
Do you relish the underdog getting the win?
Does a small (or extremely large) part of you wish karma happened where you could witness it?
Then one click now.
Still not sure...
Do you like interconnected stand alones that focus on an awesome group of eclectic individuals who would overwhelm and make you feel at home all at once?
How about a guy who pretends to be a Dom to scare a girl off only to desperately Google things to keep her coming back for more?
Seriously you're still on the fence...ugh! Time to bring out the big guns.
Think about how beneficial it is to have doctors in the circle of friendship when American Pie like mishaps become dangerously normal.
That one had to have you one click!
No, you must be hardcore. Ok then, you leave me no choice. I will break out the feels.
Despair, loneliness, abandonment, humiliation, regret, love, tons of lust, hesitation, and heartbreak
But which one is the closer...which feeling ends the fun, flirty, and down right amusing adventure these two embark on?
Guess now's a great time to one click, huh?!?!

“I don’t have any idea how to use all this stuff,” I whisper-yell, and they both turn to look at me like I’ve sprouted a second head.
My cousins are loading down baskets full of somewhat complicated, kinky shit, yet I’m the one who is an idiot for not knowing how to use it.
I should have gone to Rye and Brin.
“You don’t actually use it,” Maverick says, his smile turning mocking.
“You kinky bastard,” Corbin adds, goading me with his own taunting smile.
I’m going to kill them both.
“Then why are we buying it?” I growl.
They exchange a horrified look mixed with fascination before doubling over, laughing harder and drawing too much attention our way.
“You really are a kinky little shit, aren’t you?” Maverick asks through his guffaws. “You wanted to use this stuff?”
Dead. They’re both dead.
“It’s always the quiet ones,” Corbin says, too damn amused for his own good.
