TRYING IT ALL
Naked Men #4
Releasing May 16, 2017
Attention to detail. Never leaving anything to chance. These are the qualities
that make Riley Ness such a terrific federal agent . . . and a pain in the ass
to everyone else. The only time Riley lets loose is when he’s hanging out with
his closest pals. So when he’s thrown together with gorgeous, flighty Summer
Sheridan, Riley’s brain tells him she’s a ticking time bomb—but his body
doesn’t want to play by the rules.
to be the most irritating man Summer has ever met. The brooding hunk thinks he
needs to teach her a few lessons about real life, while she’d rather show him
how to enjoy it. But her BFF’s all but engaged to Riley’s best friend, and
besides, their intense physical chemistry is all too real. Summer just needs
Riley to try to meet her halfway and take a chance with the one thing that matters: his heart.
I can never say enough about how much I love this group of guys, and Riley is no different. Their time in the Alps scarred all the Naked Men in different ways, Riley found peace in controlling everything. It doesn’t really provide him peace, but it keeps away the anxiety. He controls everything around him and in turn feels in control of himself.
I love how fiercely loyal these guys are to each other, but especially Riley, he will place the people he loves most above anything else.
Once Summer becomes a part of their inner circle, Riley is automatically turned off by her. He finds her wild and unpredictable and everything he’s not looking for.
I loved getting to go deeper into Summer. She too has been hurt and carries many scars, not just skin deep but also scars that are embedded in her being. Her and Riley butt heads constantly because the ways each has chosen to deal with their scars makes them complete opposites.
Riley and Summer are fun because they need to figure out how to deal with their scars and how to make their personalities fit together. I love that they push each other in vastly different directions but end up making each other better in the process.
I truly feel like I can live in this world forever ❤ <3.
