Scarlett didn’t know where her sudden burst of courage came from, but she wasn’t about to turn away now. Not when she had the sexiest man she’d ever laid eyes on ready to take her to bed. Her body trembled with desire and an awareness that something special was about to happen between them. Especially with the way Tanner’s eyes darkened at her bold, certain words of reassurance.
Grasping her hand, he led her back into the main room and to the elevator he’d walked out of earlier. He hit a button and the doors slid open. No sooner were they enclosed in the small area than she found herself surrounded by the sensual scent of his masculine cologne and by the man himself.
He hit the floor number, then backed her against the wall and braced his hips against hers. The hardness of his erection pressed into her sex, and she moaned at the anticipation of what was to come, her underwear growing damp with arousal.
“Make no mistake. You might have been the one to convince me but I’m taking control now.”
No man in her past ever spoke to her in such a self-assured, dominant way. To her surprise, she liked it. Hell, her perky nipples were proof of that, and he was looking down at the evidence with dilated pupils. Before she could respond, the elevator dinged and the doors slid open.
Holding her hand once more, he led her down a short hall and unlocked the sole door. She stepped into the apartment, which was smaller than she’d anticipated, realizing immediately he didn’t live here. There were no personal effects anywhere on the shelves, and the steel and white décor gave a sterile feeling to the place.
The door shut behind them.
“We share the apartment, my partners and I,” he said, as if reading her mind. “Whoever has the night shift uses it if they don’t feel like going home late. Although since Jason got married, it’s just me and Landon.”
She looked around once more. “It’s beautiful. Just very empty,” she murmured.
He shrugged, sliding his jacket off his broad shoulders. “It serves a purpose.”
“Do you bring many women up here?” he asked, unable to withhold her curiosity. After all, he was a hot guy with easy access to a bed above where he worked.
His sharp gaze slid to hers. “None. At least not anymore.” He hesitated before going on. “I admit when we first opened the club, the women throwing themselves at me were a novelty that I indulged, but after a while, they all seemed to have an agenda.”
“Such as?” she asked.
“They assumed because I owned the club I had money, and they wanted to be the woman on my arm permanently.”
His voice turned bitter and she didn’t blame him. “You don’t have to worry about that with me. My job and my life are too full to want anything more than one night.”
A sinful smile curved his lips. “So I’m your birthday present?”
She nodded. “And I can’t wait to unwrap you.”
Let me start off by saying that Carly Phillips is one of my go-to authors; if she wrote it, I'll read it and most often enjoy the hell out of it, she's that good. That being said, some of her books are better than others, some of her characters resonate more with me than others. Such is the case with Twice as Sexy. While I liked the storyline, I wasn't drawn into it with quite the same pull as I was with other books. It was still good, still entertaining, just not as much as others I've read. I think the fault lies with Scarlett. To me, she was just kind of a meh character - she never really shined, she got over her deep personal issues way too fast, and she didn't seem like quite the perfect match for Tanner, who was a much bigger character. I don't feel like she was much of a challenge for him so their dealings came off a little weak to me. I was more invested in what was going on with the guy who was targeting the club and why - that's what really kept me turning the pages. Still, I'm really enjoying this series and I cannot wait until Landon's story - I think it might be the best of all!
