Title: Just Say Yes
Series: Strictly Business #2
Author: Elizabeth Hayley
Release Date: December 1, 2015
From the author of The Best Medicine comes the latest Strictly Business novel—and this time, for one woman, finding the ideal man can be a pretty tall order…
Magazine columnist Quinn Sawyer has always attracted sweet, innocent, and safe men. And something tells her it’s because she’s just as harmless. So when she starts craving a guy with an edge, she realizes she may have to get one for herself.
When her boss asks for a unique pitch, Quinn’s quest to live outside her comfort zone prompts her to suggest an idea that will cause her to break her good-girl rules. And who better than Tim Jacobs to help her push her boundaries? For a while now, Quinn’s had a hot crush on the tattooed executive chef with a checkered past. If anybody can bring out her inner rebel, he can.
It’s no surprise that with every task the two complete, the sparks between them grow more and more intense. Soon there’s no denying the attraction they each feel. But Tim’s troubled past reveals an even tougher edge than Quinn expected—which means for her, falling in love might just be the greatest rebellion of all.
So, I pretty much loved everything about this book! It was sweet, sassy, sexy, and funny—a perfect combo of feelings throughout the entire story. And the title was impeccable!
“Carpe diem, Quinn. Today is the first day of the rest of your life (is that how that corny saying goes?). Anyway, I decided that we needed to up the stakes for your first foray into Good Girl Gone Bad-dom.”
Quinn is the reliable one, the safe one, the one you can always count on. However, she isn’t adventurous and doesn’t enter into uncomfortable situations. She is the good girl. But she’s tired of that and when she pitches an idea to her editor to write an article about a good girl who turns bad, even by little increments, she must now complete the tasks.
Tim is Scott’s older brother. He has lived a hard life and has been the bad boy for far too long. As Quinn’s friend he decides to help her with her foray into bad girlness, since she can’t do it alone.
What neither of them expected was to fall for the other.
“Mark me, Quinn. I want to wear the proof of what I did to you for days. I want to look at my back and know that I made you come so hard, you had to hold on for dear life.”
Even though he can’t stop his attraction to Quinn, Tim feels unworthy of a girl like her due to his past.
“Yes, you can make me worthy of you.”
I really loved everything about this book! I read it quickly and only put it down when I had to. I really loved watching Tim turn into the man that Quinn knew he was. We got to see Lauren and Scott from The Best Medicine, which I absolutely adored, as well as the rest of the cast from that book. We also met some new secondary characters, and I loved Roger as well as Tim’s friends from the pool hall. I can’t wait for the next story in this series of friends!
