Synopsis: 

Levi Black is an s.o.b.
Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he’s a pretentious, obnoxious, womanizing jacka** who thinks the world revolves around him. He wouldn’t be wrong. A famous soccer player, his skills on and off the field have won him medals, trophies, women, and the cover of every heartthrob magazine in the country. He’s broken nearly every bone in his body and a few hearts along the way, including mine—his stepsister—and lived to tell about it. One night changed everything, and I’ve avoided him like the plague ever since. Just long enough to finish college, to bury the hurt, and to outrun the memories. But now that’s all changed. I’m back, and there’s no more running. My hands are supposed to be my livelihood, but now they’re my curse. Levi’s reckless ways have landed him in a sticky situation, and his father has given me an offer I can’t refuse. One month, and all I have to do is put my hands on his body. Easier said than done. The problem is, even though I know it’s bound to bite me in the a**, I can’t bring myself to say no to the s.o.b.

My Review: 

Vista agrees to a month-long providing physical therapy to her professional soccer player step-brother, Levi.  Levi is a spoiled, sexy, man-whore, but Vista knows that having this job on her resume will help her build her physical therapy practice.  What makes everything tricky is that Vista and Levi had acted on their attraction to one another years ago, and Vista was left heart broken after the encounter.  Years, later that attraction is still there, but Vista has no intention of giving in to Levi again.  

Vista is an easy character to care about.  She is a hard-working, and kind person.  It is clear that she has been hurt in the past and is trying to prevent that from happening in the future.  Levi takes a little while to warm up to.  He acts pretty obnoxious, and definitely feels entitled to pretty much anything he wants.  I enjoyed that as the story moves along, we get to know more about Levi and the family dynamics that have shaped who he is.  Learning that there is more to him than meets the eye was rewarding.  He still screws up a lot, but I found myself cheering him on after a while and really hoping for the best for both he and Vista.  There is definitely some intense chemistry between the two of them and despite the obstacles in there way I really wanted them to find their way through their problems.  I have enjoyed other books by this author and will gladly read more by her in the future.  3.5 stars

Excerpt

“I had this plan. After the doctor appointment, I figured we’d come work out together, I’d show you my prowess, and then you’d strip off all your clothes and beg me to fuck you.”
My lip curls in disgust. “And why would you think I would do that? No, scratch that. Why would you want me to do that?”
“To prove to you that you still want me, because ever since the moment you saw me again you’ve been fighting your attraction to me.”
I snort. “You must have hit your head a few too many times on the field.”
“Probably,” he concedes, “but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong. Am I?”
My mouth opens to tell him just how wrong he is, but the words freeze in my throat. As I stand here, staring into those tropical blue eyes, I can’t make myself tell the lie. Disturbed by this, I gather up the mat from the floor and toss it back into the pile with the others. “That’s enough for today. We’re done here.”
Scrambling to catch up, Levi follows me back out to the car, reaching past me to open the passenger door. I climb in, buckling my belt and staring out the windshield while he pauses there, holding the door open as he stares down at me. I refuse to look at him. I don’t want this, any of it. I just want to get through this month and get out of here.
But Levi is determined to make it a nightmare. Just before he closes the door, I hear him say, “You’re wrong, princess. We’re not even close to being done. We’re just getting started.”
