Book 2, Compromise Me
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Laurie Peterson assumes her impulsive one-night stand with sinfully sexy Sheriff Ethan Booker is the biggest surprise of the year…until her bakery burns down while she’s basking in the afterglow. It looks like her dreams are up in smoke, but then Ethan proposes a deal too tempting to resist.
Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart.
Each book in the Compromise Me series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Book #3 Compromised in Paradise
Ethan Booker makes this story 5 stars all on his own! I adored the fact that he protected and watched out for Laurie for ten years. When he realized his feelings were more, he bided his time for the right moment. I have to say, his way of telling her her one night stands were over was hot! Laurie took a little longer to love but she had a pretty big chip on her shoulder put there by her mom, but Booker tore those walls right down. I loved how the author didn't linger too long on issues and kept the pace of the story flowing smoothly. Great read! ARC provided by NetGalley.
Ten years ago, a rookie cop, Ethan Booker, finds a sixteen year old Lauralie Peterson at a college beach party on New Year's Eve. He escorts her home and when she comes on to him, he promises that in ten years maybe that could happen. Fast forward exactly ten years later and Sheriff Ethan Booker is ready to collect on his promise to bakery owner Laurie Peterson. She's determined to keep it to one night, just like she does with every other man she's been with but when her bakery burns down and she's left with nothing, Booker is the person to get her life back on track. All she needs to do is play girlfriend for six events leading to Booker's sister's wedding. Booker has six events to convince Lauralie that she should be with him.
I totally fell in love with this book. Laurie was strong and hilarious. She definitely wasn't one to be pushed around, especially by Booker. Booker is so dedicated and protective. He does everything he can to convince Laurie that she can lean on him and that doesn't in any way make her weak. I loved the Booker family and how everyone rallied to help each other. I didn't read book one in this series but it has definitely been added to my TBR!

LOVED!!! Booker is incredibly yummy and the chemistry between him and Laurie sizzles the pages of this book. Booker's been watching Laurie for ten years. He's seen her grow from an out of control teenager to the breathtaking successful woman she is today and he's determined that now is their time. Convincing Laurie might take a little work but he's in. All in!
Samanthe Beck did an amazing job of writing a story that grabs your attention from the very first page and keeping you so enthralled you don't want to see it end. Put this on the must read list. I highly recommend it.
