The next sizzling novel of C. L. Parker's Monkey Business Trioperfect for fans of Bared to You and Beautiful Bastard
Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom
and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotionbut only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidyjust not her pity. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignityand maybe the woman he's hungry to claim once more.

Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams
until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn't letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous heartthrob Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behindand who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw's seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it's for the highest stakes of all.

Do we all remember how the first book ended?
I had to do a little re-read to remember >> #BooksAlzheimers!!!
Cassidy and Shaw were both fighting with all they had to get the partner position in their sports agency.
And at the end of book #1 Cassidy would've signed this most important client, which would've gotten her the job - BUT - she declined and let Shaw have it all!
He accepted, but he can't be bested by a girl just like that!!!
Why did she do that? Why did she let him win?
Because he told her about his sad childhood? Because they had sex? Why?
Only one way to find out - ask her!
But she's gone!
Gone home to bumfuck Maine, to take care of her parents' Bed & Breakfast, because her mom broke her leg.
And what does Shaw do? Call her? Nope - he follows her to Stonington, Maine. This adorable little fisher island town.
But Shaw is not the only one after Cass.
There's also her bestest and oldest friend Casey.
The hottest guy in town. And he's still single and still interested!

Casey was always hoping for a happy ever after with the girl he grew up with.
And Shaw? Never did any happy ever after thought ever cross his mind. But Cassidy?
She changed him.

Lots of sexiness happens in Maine....

But of course our darlings will still have some fighting to do, to get to their Happy Ever After!!!

What about Casey? What about this new character Mia?
Will there be a horrible Cliffhanger??

 I'm not telling you, of course ☺

OK - there WILL be a tiny little Cliffy ... Shaw & Cassidy will have their HEA in the next book - hopefully ☺


Great 2nd book!

I really enjoyed it!
It was something completely different from the first one. We're not in San Diego anymore - no boardroom deals - no suits - no big money.
We're in this cute little town where everybody know everybody else's business.
And poor Shaw doesn't fit in at all. He would love to fit in though.
All that home-cooking and cookie-baking and those nice old ladies. He wishes that one of them would adopt him. He had a horrible childhood back in Detroit.
But he's not in town to get adopted. He wants to talk to Cassidy - and maybe take her to bed a few times - and then go back home.
But there's this Casey guy sniffing around his Cassidy!!!

It was so adorable to read about poor Shaw fighting for something he didn't even know he wanted.

We have LOTS of verrrry sexy scenes!!!

And lots of very moving scenes!!!
Poor Shaw, poor Casey --- lots of awwww moments!

I really enjoyed this book - and I loved the location and Cassidy's & Casey's family. All so adorable and loving.

Were there some things I didn't like?
Hmm....maybe the way Shaw talks too much to us or rather to himself. He digresses here and there and everywhere - it's a tiny bit too much. But he's still an amazingly cool guy!!!
Also - this whole second book was NOTHING like the first one.
I kinda had this whole cheesy Nora Roberts Romance Feeling.
This cozy little island with lots of sexi romance happening. BUT I loved that - it was just so far away from book #1 and from how our darlings acted in book #1..

GETTING ROUGH was the perfect second book in this series!
Very funny & adorable & moving & erotic!! Go and get yourself some Shaw & Casey!

And please Ms. Parker - GIVE. ME.
COMING. CLEAN. asap!!!☺☺☺


Our ► Review


C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.
