Publication date: May 12, 2015
*Synopsis*Shaw Matthews plays to win, and he intends to snag a coveted partnership at San Diego's hottest sports agency by signing America's top athlete. Only one woman stands in his way: rival agent Cassidy Whalen. But eliminating the competition will be Shaw's pleasure when he concocts an ingenious plan to seduce Cassidy and show the beautiful ballbreaker who's the better man for the job. That is, until Cassidy turns the tables—and their steamy encounters start breaking all the rules.
Cassidy has worked hard to make it in a man's cutthroat arena, and she isn't going down without a fight, not even against the six-two alpha hunk whose rock-hard body awakens desires she's never known before. As Cassidy shares night after night of unending passion with Shaw, the game begins to change. Now Cassidy stands to lose everything—unless a fiery contest of wills can become a winning proposition for two people who keep raising the stakes.
Cassidy Walden and Shaw Matthew work as sport agents for the same company, but they are rivals on the field. Indeed, the one who will sign a contract with Denver Rockford, a famous NFL player, will also become the new partner at Striker Sports Entertainment.
This is an enemies to lovers story. Shaw and Cassidy have a love-hate relationship, they can't stand each other, but they can't deny the attraction between them. Things between them are explosive..No need to say that sex scenes were really steamy and hot!They both don't want to figure out what they feel for each other, actually, they refuse to do it.
I wasn't enjoying it at first and I struggled with it. Luckily, the story warmed up.
I didn't have big issues with Shaw or Cassidy, but sometimes they acted a bit too childish in my opinion. I guess I have to see how things will go in the next book to make up my mind.
There were many things I liked..but at the same time they were also many things that didn't sit well with me, that's why I couldn't rate it higher.
Shaw is a real playboy, he's a charmer, beautiful and really determined man.
Cassidy is a determined and confident woman as well and she will try her best to gain the job position.
There were many secondary stories in this book, but you won't feel confused. I loved Landon and I hope we will get more of him in the next book <3
I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series, especially because of the way this one ended. Ugh.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I really want to know what will happen next!
This is book one in the Monkey Business series and it's not a stand-alone.
