What it's about:
She’s getting dirty with the bad boy…
Determined to find her inner badass and save her business, boutique owner Michelle Ruby signs up for a twenty-four hour survival class. Except, she’s the only person who registered, and the guide is a sex-on-a-stick G.I. Joe come to life. Between his massive muscles, smoldering blue eyes, and “there’s no crying in camping” attitude, she’s in trouble…in more ways than one.
Search and rescue squad member Dex Young never thought he’d be roped into teaching “survival skills” to pageant queens. His sole student is upper class, upper state, and sexy as hell. And he has a sneaking suspicion that beneath her tight updo and designer jeans, there’s a sex kitten waiting to claw her way out.
But Dex knows women like her. Knows they only bring guys like him home to piss off their daddies. If it’s the bad boy experience she wants, she’ll get it. And Dex? Well, he can’t wait to find out just how dirty Michelle’s willing to get…

ADD TO GOODREADS
Joya Ryan gives us a hot one in this book. It’s a fast and easy read. We’ve got our heroine, Michelle, who’s trying to break free of her past and have new experiences, and our hero, Dex, a super hot survivalist expert in need of hours training inexperienced people to be recertified. Michelle wants those hours for an outdoorsy experience very much out of her comfort zone. She wasn’t going into it looking for more than a taste of how to survive outdoors. The heat between the main characters melts the pages.
Perhaps because this was such a short story there wasn’t much time for the author to draw out the characters. Not a lot of back-and-forth. The two jumped so fast into a one-nighter that it surprised me. Usually there’s a little buildup but it was wham-boom in this book. Hey, if the chemistry is there…as it surely was for these two.
My only issue is I had a hard time buying a deep connection between the two characters beyond the physical, at least nothing that would hold them together for the long-term.
If you’re looking for a fast, hot read, then this is the one for you.
