It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.

Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

Oh Taggart Crane. Or Tarzan. Or Thor. Or the Viking Billionaire. Or Flex Luthor. Or just plain Tag. Whatever you want to call him, he's freaking AMAZING. Tag is much more laid back and relaxed than his brother Reese, but just as successful. He's a known player and has no plans on settling down. But then he meets Rachel through a pretty hilarious misunderstanding and all bets are off. 

When Tag discovers that Rachel has bartender experience and can help him with some of the projects he has going at a few Crane hotels, he enlists her help. Of course this includes a trip to a Crane hotel in Hawaii where the two of them become closer than they ever thought possible. Tag doesn't date and Rachel is just getting out of a relationship that ended terribly. Neither of them are looking for a relationship, but before they know it, they are in one. 

I loved Rachel and Tag together. Their relationship was so much fun to watch unfold. Professionally they worked well together and on a personal level they had phenomenal chemistry, so the sex was off the charts hot. They had also had these moments where they were exremely playful. I knew Tag was more laid back than Reese, but I found those moments of playfulness to be a bit surprising. The big, bad, Tarzan-like man is actually a giant teddy bear and you couldn't help but love him!

The third and final book in this series is about Reese and Tag's brother, Eli. We meet Eli in this book and it is unfortunately under some pretty dire circumstances. There were some great moments between the Crane brothers and I look forward to reading Eli's story. 


“Why is it you look like you’re thinking something sinister?” he asked, that eyebrow arcing higher. “And don’t lie to me, Dimples. I have a sixth sense.” She watched his slow smile, white teeth appearing as his trimmed beard parted. Her nether regions buzzed like she’d sat on a vibrating phone.

“I’m surprised . . .” she started, feeling daring. Must be the Kona coffee.


“Because I expected you to induct me into the Mile High Club by now. This is my first private flight.” She looked at him through her lashes, her coy smile in place.

Tag wore an all-out grin, which made her inordinately pleased. Where she was concerned, he wasn’t immune. And she liked that. A lot.

“Excuse me.” Smoothly, he shut his laptop, stood, and walked from cabin to cockpit.

Okay. That was interesting. She hadn’t expected him to leave. Maybe she didn’t have the same power over him as he had over her.

She turned to look out the window, but the nighttime landscape was nothing but blackness. She imagined a sea of clouds and blue skies once the sun rose, anticipating being someplace where the high was above freezing. She wondered what the temperature was on—

“Let’s go.” Her hand was snatched a moment later as Tag pulled her out of her seat and led her to the bedroom.

“Wait,” she said through her laughter as she hustled after him. “What are you doing?”

In the bedroom, he released her, closed the door, and whipped off his shirt. She gasped, her eyes eating up his tanned muscles and bulky arms.

“Making you a member.” He caught the back of her head in his hand and kissed her. She melted beneath his touch. She was hopelessly attracted to him. Just an absolute goner.

When she caught a breath of air, she said, “Where did you go?”

“Told the pilot to take the long way.”

“There’s a longer way to Hawaii?”

“There is now.”
