It's Getting Cold Outside, Warm Up With Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren
A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.
When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?
Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.
The 411 by Maria:
I love sexual tension build up in my books. I love comical banter with the main characters. I love friendship that turns into love! Beautiful Player is all that.
Unfortunately I have yet to read Beautiful Bombshell where we are introduced to sexy Will Summer but hope to grab it soon.
This is a a story about falling in love with your childhood crush the boy you fantasized about as a teen, saw all the time but had to fight the feelings because of family, another relationship or at the time you were too young.
Hanna knows Will for years. He is her brother's best friend and her sister made out with him as a teenager. They spent many years together with Hanna silently watching him and him seeing her as just his best friends kid sister.
Hanna is a dedicated worker and spends too much time in the lab and not enough time living life. Her brother Jensen and her father corner her one night demanding she start "living"! Like a big brother he enlists the help of his friend Will to get his little sister out. After all, Will is a social maven and a "player".
The book is a fun, progression of a relationship that starts out innocent and awkward. Christina does a great job of showing us both characters feelings and reading how the other is thinking and not having to imagine the thoughts in their head made this story even more exciting.
If you like sexy romance books, this is the one.
