Synopsis from Publicist
He’s the bad boy her mother warned her about.
The guy who makes her crave all the naughty things a good girl shouldn’t want.
Tanner Grayson is a man outrunning the demons of his past and has the rap sheet to prove it. The only thing keeping old anger in check and him on the straight and narrow are the men he calls brothers and the club he calls home. He has no business taking the sexy woman doing shots in his club upstairs to his bed.
They never should have crossed paths. But when Assistant District Attorney Scarlett Davis lays eyes on the hot as sin club owner, she decides he’s the birthday present she wants to unwrap at the end of the evening.
He tells himself it’s one night. She convinces herself she deserves a short break from her latest case. But one night isn’t enough and soon these two opposites are in deeper than they ever planned.
When Scarlett’s case collides with Tanner’s past, she sees the dangerous man he’s hidden beneath the cool veneer he presents to the world. Can she accept him for who he is? Or will she run from the bad boy who makes her feel so good?
Tanner and Scarlett have an insta-connection from the moment their eyes meet across the crowded club Tanner co-owns. Scarlett doesn’t normally have much of a social-life but decides Tanner is going to be her personal birthday present 🎁
Both Tanner and Scarlett have a lot of emotional baggage which has them both convinced they are not relationship material. However, Tanner is self-aware enough to realise the connection they share is special and should be explored further.
I loved the way in which Tanner gave himself over to his emotions and gradually chipped away at Scarlett’s barriers to show her how perfect they are and could be together.
When the past catches up to the present, Tanner has to prove he has matured in the way in which he is able to handle situations. Unfortunately, this also exposes parts of his past he would prefer left hidden especially where Scarlett is concerned.
Both Scarlett and Tanner have experienced traumatic events in their lives and it is these events which have shaped them into the people they have become and the career paths they have taken. Intriguingly the events put them on opposing sides and are a pivotal point to their relationship.
I loved the support system around Tanner along with how easily Scarlett is accepted into their inner circle.
Twice as Sexy is a fast-paced both in action and in terms of the relationship between Tanner and Scarlett. While the relationship angst is fairly low, there is a lot of drama within the plot adding suspense to the narrative.
