Two strong characters collide in this passionate and heart-warming tale.

Challenge Series, book 1 – Three friends. Three challenges. Are they willing to risk everything for love?

Life is good for ex-soldier turned entrepreneur Michael Ede. Or so he thinks. When his friends set him a challenge to exorcise the memory of a woman from his past, he expects it to be a walk in the park.

Socialite Kasie Bosa is spitting fire at men. Her long-term boyfriend has asked for a break via text message of all things. Fuming, she’s told him to go take a dive off the nearest bridge. So the next man who crosses her path is at risk of being shredded with her spa manicured nails.

Bad news for Michael who has chosen her as the object of his challenge. But neither of them can deny the sizzling chemistry between them nor control their responses, it seems. It’s the season of love. Will they escape unscathed?

Maya's Review

Sweet. Sexy. Heart-warming. I love the premise of this story.

Michael says he's over an ex-girlfriend who jilted him because of their status differences when he was still young and unsuccessful but his friends don't believe him. So they set him a challenge to seduce a woman who has similar attributes to his ex. The catch is that he has to pretend to be just an ordinary guy instead of the successful business man he is. Kasie has just broken up with her boyfriend just before Valentine's Day so she's very pissed off at men in general.

When the two of them meet, sparks fly in more ways than one. Their attraction is instantaneous although both of them deny it. Michael is only in to win the bet and Kasie can't get involved with another man so soon after her ex. But as they get to know each other the walls around their hearts start to crumble.

This story is so beautifully heart-warming and pulls you right in from the start. When the black moment came I was so sad because I felt Kasie's pain. I didn't want the story to end. I wanted more of Kasie and Michael. But no worries, there are other books to this series, so I hope to read more about them in future books.
