What happens when a girl who always calls the shots meets a guy who's too wild for even her?

A born flirt and good-time party girl, Emerson has never had a problem finding a willing guy. She's always chosen her hookups carefully, and she's never broken her three cardinal rules:

Never let them see the real you.

Never fall in love.
Always leave them begging for more.

Then Shaw comes along. A hottie from the wrong side of the tracks, he's immune to her flirtatious banter and come-hither smile. After rescuing her from a disastrous night at a biker bar, he doesn't even try to take her to bed—he calls her a tease and sends her home instead. Unable to resist a challenge, or forget the sexy, dark-eyed, bad-boy biker, she vows to bring him to his knees.

But instead of making Shaw beg, Emerson finds herself craving him. For the first time in her life, she's throwing out her rule book. Suddenly, she's the one panting for a guy she can't control—a guy who won't settle for anything less than the real Emerson and who forces her to do things she's never imagined, including facing a past she thought she'd buried.

A guy who just might leave her wanting more. .

My Review: Another masterpiece by Sophie! Her writing never disappoints me and I'll be looking forward to all other books she comes out with.

Now last time we had Recce and Pepper. Now its all about Emerson and Shaw. The wild girl Emerson, who never seemed like the kind to settle down. Then Shaw the hot mysterious biker guy. Neither planned for any of this happen, but it was just perfection waiting to happen.

Emerson goes out to a biker joint to see a band play that her friend's boyfriend is in. It'snot her usual scene and this was a last option for her. She wanted to be out, doesn't exactly like this girl, and her good friends are all wrapped up with their boyfriends right now. After some drinks and hanging around, a nasty biker guy comes up and tries making moves on Emerson. She sin't having it and next thing you know there is a brawl going on. The brawl leads to the band being hurt and everyone just ditching her at the bar. Great, she is drunk, its cold out and she feel on her butt.

Shaw comes out and offers her a ride back. He truly is nice and caring and only wants to help her get home. But on the way there she passes out and wake up in his cabin. She was in his bed and he slept on the couch. Hot and a gentleman! Shaw is just amazing and after some words, goes to take Emerson home.

Neither expected to see each other again, let alone expect anything from the other. Not very long until they both meet again. Emerson joins Pepper and boy to a friends engagement party. When people start to gawk at the door she goes to see whats going on. What do you know, shaw is walking into the house. They act all casual and go their separate ways once again. Until they end up meeting again. After a lovely fight with her mom, Emerson just wants to blow off steam. How? Her and her friends go out and enjoy a band, some dancing, and time at the bar. 

A few drinks at the bar and Shaw appears next to her. He is ready to take her home and Emerson doesn't want to. Well after some words and a guy on the floor, she is lead out by Shaw. It all leads to them kissing and something lovely starts with them.....

I so LOVED this story and can't wait for the next one about Georgia! Sophie is amazing and I have NEVER read a book by her that I didn't love.
