Sawyer Beckett does everything full throttle— he’s fiercely loyal to his friends, always the life of the party and impossible for the parade of women in and out of his bedroom to forget.

Surrounded by true love and happily ever afters, Sawyer's not sure if he's enhancing the what-ifs in his head, or if the goddess on stage that night really is worth the search and nagging in his chest.

At the most inopportune moment possible, Emmett Young comes "skipping" back into his life...and for the first time, Sawyer is the one left wanting more. But Emmett can't give her heart; it's already committed—for life.

The only one strong enough to bring the elusive playboy to his knees is the one he can't have. Luckily, Sawyer Beckett doesn't give up easily.

Mature subject matter and strong sexual content- mature audiences only recommended.

my review-

Just as when Mr. No-Commitment found the one and tries to get emotionally involve with her, the one was emotionally unavailable – irony right?

I thought she was dying, or she was married. How can she say no to these amazing guy who’s following her like a love-sick puppy? It was obvious that she feels the attraction as well, so what in the world could be wrong with her?

He used to sleep with just about anyone with a skirt and party all night until he set his eyes on her. Then he was ruined for life. He wanted her, now if he only knew her name or her number, everything will fall into place. But, the next time they saw each other, it was just terrible, his pants were down and a girl (whom he couldn’t remember the name) was giving him a head. Imagine is surprise! But despite being a manwhore and a party-goer, I still like him because he is a loyal friend to the Crew. I especially adore his friendship with Laney – who says guys and girls could never be friends?

Emmet Young wanted him, alright, but she has some baggage he doesn’t need. However, our boy Sawyer doesn’t just give up easily. He pursued, pursued, and pursued. He was determine to have her. For the first time in his life, he wanted something strongly, he was ready to just about anything. 

When the cat was out of the bag, and Sawyer didn’t run away – I thought they were going to have their HEA, but no. Another twist was added to the story which gave at an extra spice.

Reformed rakes are the best lovers – I have read this somewhere reading regency romance. I think it applies here as well. Seeing Sawyer change, become responsible and be someone soooo pussy-whipped, you will readily forgive and forget the old Sawyer. He’s as good as it gets. Her baggage didn’t matter to him, he accepted it wholeheartedly.

I love the cover, and everything underneath it. The two characters who were just so likeable, including their friends. Thank goodness, Emmet met them, they were just the ones she needed at times like these. I had a lot of laughs, I think I held my breath on some scenes, my heart ached a bit, and I had those ‘awwww’ moments that made my heart melt. Loved this one and would gladly recommend it to friends!

excerpt - 
Sighing, I wrap a towel around my waist and open the door, ready to try and be at least a level of cordial I know is only right. “Listen, can I-“  

“She’s gone.”  

I look up, startled by Laney’s voice and shocked to see her sitting on my bed. Thank God I put on a towel. “Where’d she go?”  

“Home I guess,” she shrugs, “I didn’t ask. I heard the front door slam and got up to see what the hell. Since you’re here and she’s not, I’m assuming it was her.”  

How did I not hear the door slam? Not that I would have chased her. “Alright, she left. But what’re you doing in here?” She stands, grabbing some shorts off my floor and throwing them at me. “Go put those on and we’ll talk. Since I’m up,” she shoots me an evil glare. 

I head back in the bathroom to change, and stay in there, locking the door. I am over six feet tall and lift almost every day, and yes, I’m scared to face Laney. Not only is she a hellcat when she wants to be, but I don’t want to see the disgust or disappointment in her eyes. She’s one of my best friends, even more so after becoming roommates, and her opinion means a lot to me. “Get out here,” she yells when she finally realizes I must be stalling.  

“Take it like a man.” Well, I might as well go out or she’ll undoubtedly come in here, kicking in the door or taking if off the hinges in what I have no doubt would take her less than five minutes. I open it and she pats the bed beside her.  

“Come sit down. We’re doing this now.” I hesitantly take a seat beside her, my knee bouncing as I wait for her to speak.  

“First, and of the upmost importance, you know I call my father ‘daddy.’ So hearing your visitors scream it repeatedly in the middle of the night freaks me out. I wake up thinking I’m in some bad Lifetime movie.” Fighting my smirk I agree.  

"Okay, got it."  

"Second," she stands and tucks a pillow between my headboard and the wall, "leave that there." She once again sits down beside me. "School and game nights, booty call curfew is eleven. That work for you?"  

"Yeah," I sigh and run my hands along my head, wishing I had some hair to pull.  

"It won't happen again Gidge, I'm sorry." She places a hand on my shoulder with a small smile.  

"Don't be sorry, this is your house too and we hadn't talked about it. Now we have, so we're all good. Any rules you want to put in place?"  

"Nah, I'm easy."  

"Made crystal clear by the parade of women coming in and out of here." She laughs and scoots away quickly, ducking the pillow I grab and swing at her head.  

“Speaking of which, been busier than usual lately. You trying for Guiness or Gonorrhea?" Here we go - what she really wants to talk about.
