Bestselling romance Tell Me You Want Me gets a steamy sequel….
Notorious heartbreaker Austin Sinclair vowed he’d never fall in love, but all that changed when he met his Janie. They’re living their happily ever after… until an unexpected threat tears them apart.
Austin is desperate to get Janie back, but fails miserably. He’s said ‘I love you’ so often Janie doesn’t care anymore, and getting her in his bed to prove it seems impossible. His old life beckons. Could he be that guy again?
Jane scored big when she landed Austin, but now she faces a temptation she never expected—one that makes her question what she really wants from love. Staying in a relationship with him requires all the strength she has. She’s tired, and giving in to someone else would be so easy.
Each hopes that something will change, that the other will give in, but it’s going to take both of them—together—to overcome this obstacle. Can they make their love last forever? Or has their fight been for nothing?
I really loved Jane and Austin from Tell Me You Want Me, which is the first book in this series. So I was more than happy to get my hands on this book as well. Then I read the blurb and thought, "Oh no, they're going to have relationship problems?"
But I have to say that the guy in Jane's cooking class that turns her head is so swoon worthy. He's Scottish, has a Scottish accent and uses words like Lass and Lassies. Can you tell I love it when a character has a Scottish accent? Yeah, well I do. Finn is a fun character and I almost wanted things to work out between him and Jane, almost.
Austin's father made me do a double take too. His personality changed a bit, maybe all he needed was to grow up a bit and finally settle down with the right woman.
While I love Austin, I really do. I also struggled to get past his constant whining about his parents and how they are the reason he wouldn't ever consider marriage. His insecurities about marriage and relationships made it hard to want Jane to get back together with him. I think if she had been a friend in real life, I would have told her that she could do better.
But then every couple has some rough spots so it was interesting to watch how they handled theirs. So yeah, I loved this book. The hero and heroine aren't perfect and really, who is? So that made everything all the more believable.
I would suggest reading the first book in this series so that this couples relationship makes more sense to you. If you'd like to buy this book for yourself, you can do so here.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

...“I can give you exactly what you’re asking for, Janie, and I can give it to you all night long.”...
Their first kiss is impulsive, fun, a little wicked—everything Jane Elliot isn’t looking for in a man, but desperately needs.
Their second kiss is slow, deliberate, an instant connection—everything Austin Sinclair never had with a woman, and doesn’t want.
Jane is no easy conquest, not the type of woman Austin’s used to. Stubborn as hell, and a bookworm more interested in studying than dating, she needs a little—no, a lot—of fun in her life. Well,Austin’s just the guy who can give it to her.
Too bad she thinks love should be easy. Too bad Austin knows it isn’t.
Everybody told her to stay away from the heartbreaker, but Jane knows there’s more to Austin than full-body contact kisses and bad boy charm. He promised her a good time—nothing more—and wow… does he ever deliver!
Charles Austin Sinclair III (Austin) grew up in a house with parents who argued all the time because his dad was a ladies man and cheated on his mother time and time again, which ultimately led to their divorce. So he saw nothing wrong with sleeping with a different woman every week.
Jane Elliot had plans, goals and being another notch on a guys bed post wasn't one of them, but when Austin sets his sights on her she finds it hard to keep saying no to him.
This is the first book I've read from this author and I'm kinda new to the sports themed romances but I've read a few of them and have really liked the ones I've read. I really loved the combination of college life, sports and a steamy romance with this one.
Jane needs...no she wants to have a little fun and figures Austin is just the guy to have some no strings fun with. But things don't always turn out the way you plan them to. Austin doesn't believe in love and can't see himself being with one woman for the rest of his life. He's got some serious emotional issues because his dad is a jerk and he saw what his mother went through when he was a kid.
I wanted to dislike Austin and I started out with a pre-conceived idea of what this guy was really like but people can change and they can surprise you and he did just that for me. He just needed to unlearn everything his father ever said or taught him about relationships.
I love Jane. When I find a heroine that makes me smile because of her sarcastic attitude and turns out to be a strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and won't let anyone or anything stand in her way, I always find myself rooting for her. She's a fighter and one smart cookie and exactly what Austin needs.
It was fun watching these characters grow and learn from their mistakes. Neither one of them have had easy lives and even though they are in college and are now adults, it was interesting to see how much pressure a parent could put on them and make them struggle with the decisions they had made.
I really liked this book and plan to read more from this author.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
If you'd like to purchase this book you can do so on Amazon.
