He is the most overbearing, rude, insensitive, callous, uncivilized, arrogant class A jerk I have ever had the misfortune to come across. What man threatens to put a grown woman over his knees and spank her the first time he meets her? Yes, he did that. That green-eyed, hunk of steely muscles, and hot goodness. Did I just say hot goodness?
I shouldn’t have because I hate him. I mean, like really. And I can’t believe I’m now being forced to work with him to win this million dollar prize.
I need the money desperately, so I’ll bite my tongue and get on with it. Even though the jerk oozes sex appeal I am going to take great delight in seeing the expression on his arrogant face when I collect the prize and walk out of here...alone.

She is the most stubborn, contrary, infuriating, pain in the a** I have ever met. Someone should put her over their knees and spank her. Why am I thinking it should be me? Cancel that. I don’t need a ball breaking brat in my life at the moment. Or ever.
Though wiping that smug smile off her face is going to be fun. Sure, I’ll work with her, but as soon as I win this money I’m out of here.
There can be only one winner and that person is me!
She does have very distracting curves though...very.




Maybe if she was gagged or something, I’d love to show her what ten inches really looks like. by Trent


Dakota needs a lot of money A.S.A.P. She is in a spot that she believes being part of the reality show Dare Me is her only solution. She will do anything for that money even becoming partners with the most insufferable man on earth.

Trent has tried to launch his business for more than three years. When he sees that the new reality show Dare Me is looking for someone who will do anything for money, he knows that will be him. What he didn’t imagine was that he would have a partner, and that his partner would be a sexy obnoxious woman.

Can they work together to make their dreams come true? What will it happen when only one can get the prize?



  • Cover: I like the cover. It is hot! But I took one star out because at the same time doesn’t tell you much of the story. The title is catchy!
  • Plot: WOW! Amazing plot. There is nothing bad I could say about it. It’s fast-paced, cohesive, original, without loopholes, fun and sexy.
  • Characters: They are both great. They are easy to love, connect and understand.
  • Heat: OMG! Their chemistry is great from the first scene of the book. It is obvious that they will combust together and all of their scenes are H.O.T!!! Also, the smut is always pertinent to the plot.
  • Freshness: This is one of the most original books I have read. The main idea for the plot is different from anything else out there.
  • Addictiveness: Very easy read that you feel you MUST finish!




  • I can’t think of anything. I loved it!


Life happens. We can never predict what things will look like, even a year from now. There will always be twists and turns, but the one thing you’ll never ever have to worry about is us, you and me.



This is my first book from Ms. Laurent,  and YEP, I have missed out. This was AMAZING! It was so unexpected. I’m a bit of a cover slut and I’ve picked this read at booksprout because of the cover. At the end I was in AWE.

The story is so unique and the end is very emotional. I have laughed and I have cried while reading this. I had fun!!!


You MAY read this because you enjoy a good romance; you SHOULD read this because you like a hot read; you MUST read this if you want something UNIQUE!!!


About River Laurent

The first romance novel I ever read was a coverless Mills & Boons that I had smuggled into bed to read by torchlight.

I opened the book, and suddenly, I was transported into a wonderfully exciting world where a tall, dark and handsome man sparred with an ordinary girl just like me, and in the end…she got to keep him!

My stories still carry the scent of that dashing hero from my first book, because, you see, that billionaire was my very first love. And I’ve never ever really forgotten him.

When I’m not reading, or writing about hot Alphas, or eating delicious cashew nut cookies, I can be found…washing dishes, gardening, cooking, cleaning, dusting, or even picking up dog poo.
