Bea Paxton is a free spirit. She loves her fledgling interior design business, having fun, and she loves men. But only temporarily. Rule #1 is no relationships, no love, no commitment. She likes being in charge. It’s the only way to protect herself from getting hurt again.

Zane Price is the perfect candidate for a steamy time—beautiful, built, and British. Plus, he’ll soon be moving back to England. Really perfect.

Well...except for the fact that he’s her biggest client. And he doesn’t play by her rules. Hell, no. He wants more. Much more. Which is definitely not on the agenda.

Unfortunately, his kisses are nothing short of toe-curlingly awesome. And he is distracting her—a lot—from doing her job.

She needs to stay away from him. Her livelihood depends on it.


But Zane always gets what he wants. And he wants Bea. But for right now? Or forever...?

My Thoughts:
Oh my gosh these two steamed up the pages within the first couple of pages. There was so much sexual banter between these two that it made it fun to see when they actually got together. There were a few instances I was laughing out loud. Especially when Bea was trying to have an open dialogue between her brain and vagina. The brain saying no bad idea and the vagina saying this is an excellent idea. Bea trying to keep things professional between her and Zane. Zane is basically on a mission to get with Bea, because she's hot, funny, and sassy. So, begins his seduction on Bea. I have to give props to resist the man for a few chapters. 

I totally enjoyed Casual Affair, because you have Bea who is extremely independent and doesn't want a man telling her what to do. There's a reason for her being kind of commitment-phobic. I think she rather get her teeth pulled without any painkillers than say she was in a relationship, so poor Zane has to tread carefully through these waters. Actually he does pretty well, up until the last few chapters. Seriously, the banter between these two is pretty funny and amazing. These two had great chemistry. I totally fell in love with Zane. Granted he's a bit of control freak, but he has his reasonings. Bea I adore, but I was a little upset with her for breaking Zane's heart towards the end. Fortunately, they both realize their faults. 

Overall, Casual Affair was nicely done. A great balance between banter and intimate times. So, if you are in need of some laughs, and sexy time, Casual Affair might be what you need.

Excerpt:

She waited for just the right moment, pushing to her feet when she saw her opening. She was zoned in on her target, gun lifting in his direction—and was suddenly flying through the air.
“Hey!”

Somebody had hold of her and they were going down. She braced herself for impact with the hard ground, but landed on a firm chest instead. A chest that smelled suspiciously like…Zane Price.
She was rolled off his body and found herself staring up at his face. He looked kind of angry. Huh. She wasn’t expecting that. She could feel his package grinding against her pelvis, so she certainly wasn’t mad about anything. A package that was quickly hardening, by the way.
“Did you just tackle me?” she asked in bewilderment.
She saw him swallow as his eyes flew over her face. “I believe I did, yes.”
Their position on the ground was far too sexual—not that she was doing anything about it. His upper body was hovering over hers so as not to crush her, but their lower bodies were in close contact.
Very close contact.
She cleared her throat. “Why?”
“Because you were about to become a casualty,” he whispered. “I saved your life.”
“My hero.” She’d meant it to sound sarcastic. But her voice came out a lot huskier than she’d intended.
He noticed.
His eyes darkened in response.
Everything below her belly clenched with need, a reaction that his own body mirrored. She felt him grow thick against her thigh, and though he didn’t say anything, she knew they were both aware of what was happening south of the border.
“And you’re still on top of me, why?”
“Because part of me is quite comfortable here,” he admitted. “And a different part of me is about to be in a world of pain once I move. I’m trying to decide which part I should listen to.”
“Do I get a say in this?”
He gave a small thrust of his hips against her, making her gasp. One quick grind that allowed her to feel the full extent of his manhood in all of its stiff glory.
She was a goner.
His eyelids lowered to half-mast as he took in her reaction. “Do you want a say in this?”
