Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.
Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her.
Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.

5 of 5 That First Kiss
How to start this review is the craziest thing ever. After reading That First Kiss I was in serious need of some ice cubes! The hotness and sexiness and the dam banter in this book had me laughing so hard. Everyone who knows me knows I love a smart fouled mouth moody mofo man. Lord I loved the banter back and forth and I love how they meet. The clubs always bring out the wild in us but this was way beyond wild!
Piper needed to change her life and she needed a change in scenery so she did just that. She walked away from her family and friends and started a new life and she could not be happier. But with her money running low she knows she needs to get a job real fast. So she applies for this assistant job and gets it. The night before she is supposed to start her new job she goes out with the girls to celebrate and she meets this sexy as sin man and they have this instant connection thing going on and a whole lot of lust so they dance and hook up later on that night. Piper is all good with that because she knows she will never see this man again so what the hell live a little. That is until she goes to her job the next day and meets her boss...... Yes you see where I am going with this, it is none other than Mr Hookup! Holy Fudge!
Tate Larson is one sexy mofo and he is every bit alpha male. Tate lives his life like he wants carefree, no commitments, and hook ups. Tate does not do relationships because he was burned and her prefers to keep his heart in tack but when he meets Piper he can't deny what he feels for her and after spending one night with her knows there is something there. He tries like hell to stay away from her but she is his new assistant and he will see her everyday for hours. What can he do? His feelings are growing stronger for Piper but he is scared and Piper doesn't look like the dating type because she gives him shit just like he gives her.
Will they be able to put their pasts behind them and the hurt behind them to open up to love and new adventures? This is a must read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
