Book Summary (Per Goodreads)
Kayla Moore has always been comfortable with her feisty, maneating reputation. At least it was fine until she hit her thirties and saw her best friends Stephanie and Nicola settle down with Linden and Bram McGregor, leaving Kayla to be the odd one out. Tired of being the third wheel with nothing but one-night stands and dead-end dates in San Francisco, Kayla decides to take a vow of celibacy and put men on the backburner.

That is until she lays her eyes on Linden and Bram’s cousin, hot Scot Lachlan McGregor. Lachlan is her sexual fantasy come to life – tall, tatted, and built like a Mack truck. With a steely gaze and successful rugby career back in Edinburgh, he’s the kind of man that makes her want to throw her vow right out the window. But Lachlan’s quiet and intense demeanor makes him a hard man to get to know, let alone get close to.

It isn’t until the two of them are thrown together one long, unforgettable night that Kayla realizes there is so much more to this brooding macho man than what meets the eye. But even with sparks flying between the two, Lachlan can’t stay in America forever. Now, Kayla has to decide whether to uproot her whole life and chance it all on someone she barely knows or risk getting burned once again.

Sometimes love is a game that just needs to be played.

My Thoughts
accent, tattoos, tall, hot, loves dogs...literally my dream man come to life. sassy, honest, open, loves her family and friends...a girl everyone would want as a best friend. I loved meeting this couple and their friends/family.  I thought this story was gripping and took me on a roller coaster of emotions that I do not normally expect from romances!  I cried, laughed, cried, coo'd, chuckled, cheered, got mad and more at the cast of characters in this book.  

This is a stand alone book, but it is the third book from KH that delves into the McGregor family.  The cover alludes to how steamy this story is and how fast paced the relationship between Lachlan and Kayla moves.  The characters (main and side) are very well developed and intriguing.  I can't wait to read more about the McGregor's but also hope to learn more about Kayla's brothers!  This is a book and author I enjoyed, but would recommend for a mature audience because definitely has scenes that are explicit and VERY intimate...aka not for the YA or New Adult audience.
