Jaxson Carter
My life, my rules:
1. My business is my life and vice versa.
2. Vulnerability is not an option.
3. Relationships are too distracting (see rule 1 and 2.)
Hard lessons learned at an early age made me the success I am today, and I would never yield having the upper hand. Then Grace swept into my life. She’s beautiful, funny, and has a big heart that could only be broken by a guy like me. But I want her. She might be the biggest risk I’ve ever encountered, with the biggest stakes.

Grace Hart
My life, their rules:
1. My business is their business.
2. Smile – someone is always watching
3. Forget having a sex life. (see rule 1 and 2)
Life in a fishbowl isn’t easy, especially when it comes to dating. I attract a lot of losers simply because I’m nice. And if a better prospect comes along, there’s my dad, ready to send them running with just a look. Until Jaxson. He’s bold and sexy. But I can tell he’s withholding a piece of himself from me, and I'm an all or nothing kind of girl.

He wants me on his terms. I want him without terms. To get what we want, we might both have to go Against the Rules.






Review:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

I am not sure about how I feel when it comes to this book. On one hand, I managed to finish it in one day, but on the other, I wonder how I was able to do that. I was reading it in a painfully slow pace and I kept feeling that it was dragging to a point where I started doubting if I was going to be able to finish the book. Maybe the reason why I felt this way is that Jax and Grace spend a lot of time running circles and not caving into their attraction. They know they want different things in life and that prevents them from having any kind of relationship other than friendship. I liked Grace and Jax as characters, but not so much as a couple. I want to know what happened to Micah. We saw him often and I just wanted to see how his life is going on after he spend so much time with Jax. We saw him at some late point in the book and he seemed like a better person and I wonder if everything is going to be ok in his life from now on.

Jax's past is not a happy one and we see glimpses of it until he decided that it was time to reveal the truth to Grace and let her in. I don't think that this book is for everyone and you should know that it might contain triggers for some of the readers even if it his past wasn't described in many details.

Author Bio

M.E. Montgomery has been an avid reader her entire life, and after falling in love with so many characters created by other authors, a new one began to form in her head. With the support of her family, she decided to write it.

She is the homework queen to her four school aged children who think she is a genius in math, science, history and spelling. Fortunately, her biology and elementary school teaching background help her to keep up the expert façade, at least for now.

Although born and raised in the Washington DC metro area, she has considered many places to be called home since she left to attend college in North Carolina. She is a proud Navy wife, setting up a home wherever the Navy sends her husband. When she’s not reading or writing, she loves to go camping with her family, drink wine on the deck, and be swept off to romantic getaways.
