A Compromise Me novel by USA Today bestselling author Samanthe Beck
Laurie Peterson assumes her impulsive one-night stand with sinfully sexy Sheriff Ethan Booker is the biggest surprise of the year…until her bakery burns down while she’s basking in the afterglow. It looks like her dreams are up in smoke, but then Ethan proposes a deal too tempting to resist. 

Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart. 

My Thoughts:

I have to say Samanthe can sure write some hot, steamy scenes and make me laugh. Boy do Laurie and Booker steam up these pages. Seriously, if you are not one for hot, steamy scenes from the get go walk away from Hard Compromise, this is not your read. Now if you don't mind need to take a cold shower or needing a fan by all means grab it. 

Like I said these two ignite the pages, and they have a history together. Not a romantic one; more like he's the law trying to keep her out of trouble. Booker has been waiting 10 years to get his hands this spit fire. Now Laurie has been trying to out run her past, but mommy dearest always shows up at in opportune times. However, Laurie is trying to keep things together. Now I thought she would have more trouble with Booker's mother, however, she's something else. I have to say that Samanthe Beck is the queen of making an awkward situation hilarious. Yes, there is one scene that I died. 

Anyway, Hard Compromise is nice blend of steam and humor. You will get some steam for sure. So, if you are in the mood to be a little warm you might give this a try.

She turned on less than steady legs and walked to the other side of the room, feeling the weight of his stare on her the entire time. Once there, she planted her feet hip’s distance apart, bent from the waist, and rested her forearms on the bed. “I trust this is interesting enough for you?” 
His footsteps fueled her adrenalin. She lowered her head to the mattress, and lifted onto her toes. 
“It’s definitely a start. Hand me my belt.” 
She raised her head as a hundred imaginary feathers fluttered down her spine. “Your...what?” 
“My belt,” he repeated. “It’s right beside you.”
“Give it to me, and you’ll find out.”
If she wasn’t in the mood for this, all she had to do was say so. Booker would let it go, without question. Even knowing this, backing down felt too much like surrender. She handed the strap to him, but couldn’t help adding a caustic comment. “Who would have guessed there were fifty shades of Sheriff Booker?” 
His soft laugh stirred invisible molecules in the air around her. “I would never do anything so conventional. Besides”—he folded the belt in half and ran the edge along the back of her thigh—“I think you secretly prefer gentle.” 
“I told you before, you don’t have to be gentle with me.” 
“You’re tough, huh?” The edge of the belt tickled her skin again. 
She faced front and held her position. “That’s right.” Dammit, she was her own worst enemy. 

“Okay, tough girl. Be still.”
