Why Do We Like This Book?

Troy and Ruby are back and bring all the heat you would expect. Troy and Ruby love hard and fight hard. This book exposes new facets to their relationship and sets the stage for Risking it All. While it's not necessary to read His Risk to Take in advance, it is highly recommended.

“Don’t you want to feel how wet I am?”
A harsh noise escaped him. “I don’t need to touch your pussy to know it’s dripping for me. But fuck, I want to. I want to lick it clean.”
“I know what you want. You want to wiggle your wet pussy all over my lap and turn me into a mad man. Too bad. The next thing you feel between your legs will be my tongue.”
“Go on, baby.  Tighten up and come again.”  He pressed their foreheads together, locking his blue gaze with hers.  “As soon as you do, I’m going to sink all the way in, to the back of your pussy.  I’m going to do what only I have the privilege of doing.  And you’re going to take it and love it.”

Publisher Synopsis

One more game. And this time, there are no rules…

After a life of pool hustling and living on the wrong side of the law, Ruby Elliott is living on the straight and narrow with sexy-as-all-hell NYPD detective, Troy Bennett. Now the only trouble Ruby has with the law is the naughty kind, pinned against the wall by Troy's strict and spectacularly hard body. Obeying his every command. Both of them losing themselves in a lust that borders on obsession...

But then her father returns with an offer she can’t refuse: one last hustle in exchange for information. Information she’d die to have. As the pieces and the players of the game reveal themselves, Troy feels the fine edges of his control slipping—control he can’t channel without hurting Ruby. The stakes are high, and the risk higher. Because losing this final game could cost more than Ruby’s heart…it might cost her life.
