Kade (Resisting Love #2) by Chantal Fernando and Dawn Martens
Synopsis from goodreads:
You met Kade and Nikki in "Chase". Now it’s time for their story.
Nikki works hard and plays even harder. A fan of no attachment type relationships, Nikki is nowhere near ready to settle down or commit to one man. What she doesn’t expect is Kade. A one night stand she can’t quite shake, Kade is a ladies’ man and the brother in law of her best friend. Will she be able to resist him? Or will Nikki take a chance on love with a notorious player?
After making a promise years ago to his now fallen best friend, Kade swore he would take care of Ashley. But what happens when Ashley has an agenda of her own? Will Kade let his promise to his best friend ruin things with the love of his life?
Love love love 1,000 times LOVE this book! I cannot even begin to explain how badly I was drooling on myself over Kade. From the beginning when they described him as looking like Jax from Sons of Anarchy (my favorite t.v. show and one of my top 3 t.v. hotties), I knew I was in for a wild ride! As if I didn't love Kade enough in the first book (Chase), Chantal and Dawn go and make him even sexier! And Nikki's mom!!! Although not a huge part of the book, she had me hysterically laughing every time she came into a scene. Seriously, she was a piece of work and had absolutely NO filter!
Back in Chase (Book #1), it was hinted at that there was more history between Nikki and Kade than what was being let on, but it was never explained in detail. In Kade, you see the in depth story behind these two... from first meet to beyond where book 1 left off.
Nikki is a feisty red headed beauty with a temper you do not want to mess with. She is out at the club one night and wants to find a hottie to take her home. Not wanting to settle down in a relationship, she has her eyes open for someone she can have a one night stand with, and then never have to see him again. No names, no attachments, no heartbreak... just a night of hot steamy sex. Enter Kade. Sweet, sexy, irresistible Kade whom all the women either want, or have already had a piece of. And this one night, Nikki will get a piece of him too. But what is supposed to be a one time hook-up turns into much more than Nikki had bargained for. As the days go by, she finds herself thinking about him more and more.
Nikki soon finds out that her best friend, Layla, lives in the same house as Kade and his brothers. Well crap, how is she supposed to get this sexy stranger off her mind if she has to see him again and again... there is only so long she can avoid going to visit Layla before things begin to look suspicious. The more times she sees Kade, the more she realizes that she cannot deny this intense attraction and chemistry that they have with one another. The only problem is Kade doesn't do relationships, he just does women. And the last thing Nikki wants is to get hurt by Kade the way she was hurt by her ex. So she fights to keep her feelings pushed to the back, and her heart locked up where Kade cannot get to it. As time goes on, she decides that whatever it is that is going on between them is worth giving a shot. Even if it ends up being the one thing that can destroy her. And thank god she decided to give it a go because man oh man the sex scenes between them is HOT!!!!! I'm talking about MULTIPLE O's within an extremely short period of time! These two just cannot keep their hands off each other!!!
"No other woman affects me like you do, Nikki. No other woman will make do now. It has to be you, only you."
Kade and Nikki seem perfect for each other, but there is one MAJOR problem... Kade's BITCH of a friend Ashley. Words cannot even begin to express the hatred I felt towards this character throughout the book. I could not believe some of the stuff that came out of her mouth! How Kade could even stand to be around that girl is beyond me. I must say that as much as I LOVED Kade the whole book, when it came to his actions involving Ashley I wanted to smack the ever loving sh*t out of him!!!!! How can such a hot and sweet man be so incredibly stupid!? ARGH! When Ashley finally pushes Nikki over the edge, away from Kade, and into the arms of Ryder (Layla's cousin), will it be too late for Kade to redeem himself and get back the only girl he ever wanted to have a future with?
There is one MAJOR thing in this book that was left unanswered, and that is: What on earth is going on with James (Kade's brother). Where is he always off to, and why does he come home with bruises and what not???? He is often not around, and is extremely secretive in where he was and what he was doing. I am hoping this will get explained when the book "James" comes out! And I am really hoping I will get to read more about Kade too!
