Is this love or just a game?
Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and, worst of all, the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.
Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him - hell, most women do - but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.
Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it - and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?
This book can be listened to as a stand-alone.

.... A sexy "battle of wills" story with lots of sexy witty banter and off the charts chemistry!
Hit The Spot was an awesome follow up to Four Letter Word! Loved all the denied attraction, and chemistry between Jamie and Tori while he relentlessly pursued Tori and she constantly rejected his advances. His steadfast pursuit and her constant denials became a true battle of wills when Jamie challenged Tori to a sexy game where the "loser" must "beg for it" putting both their hearts on the line. Taking the challenge seriously, neither wanted to lose, they've turned up the heat, and upped their seductive teasing, but when they start falling for each other, the game no longer seems to be important.
All the sexy teasing and banter between Jamie and Tori aka Legs was hot, funny and made this story fun to listen too. This was the perfect blend of humor and heat, and I loved every minute. I'm looking forward to listening to more audios by J. Daniels.
Sebastian York and Kate Russell brought each steamy seductive word to life, and nailed this performance! Between swoon-worthy romance, and awesome narration, this story's sure to "Hit The Spot" and have you begging for more! Well worth a credit, and time.

Edited. Full review at Ana's Attic Book Blog.
After reading (listening to) Four Letter Word by J. Daniels, I was hooked and couldn’t wait to read Jamie and Tori’s story in Hit The Spot . I love when the guys are funny, over-the-top flirts, have no filter, and pursue the heroine relentlessly. And I love when the heroine resists, at least for a little bit, and denies she has feelings.
"I wouldn’t be that girl. I wouldn’t want him. Only…I totally wanted him. A little, if I was lying. A lot, if I was being honest."
"I was that girl. Wanting something and knowing where it was but going in the opposite direction. Wanting something, but wait, maybe I didn’t or I shouldn’t or I couldn’t."
Despite her protests, Jamie isn’t giving up. In fact, he pursues her for NINE MONTHS! Tori has been serving him the “Loser Special” for months, and Jamie still comes in to the diner all the time to pursue her and get shot down. But he never gives up.
“Tori fought with her words. Not her body. I quit asking and just kissed her. And kissed her. And kissed her. I kissed her until seconds blurred into minutes. I kissed her hard and rowdy and rough.”
After that, it became pretty hard to deny the attraction anymore, so Jamie has a proposition:
“You want to bet me that I’ll want to have sex with you before you try and have sex with me?”
This was so much fun! Listening to them both try to tempt each other and get the other to give in first was my favorite part of the story.
Despite loving the story and banter, I did feel like the characters changed a lot from the first book, the problem being I loved them more in Four Letter Word. That’s not to say I didn’t here, but Jamie’s slang did not fit a California surfer, and at least in the audiobook, really started to bother me. Also Tori’s complete change from feisty to almost too needy made her not quite as much fun as she was in the beginning. Still, I totally enjoyed the book, and can’t wait for the next.
•How he shamelessly flirts with her, and the things that come out of his mouth!
•How he pursues her relentlessly and never gives up.
•The sex was super hot.
•Bossy dirty talking alpha.
•Kind of an enemies turned lovers story.
•The narration was mostly good.
•This may seem nitpicky, but the way Jamie spoke really started getting on my nerves, and I noticed even Tori started picking up on it a little too. The lack of pronouns and word “ain’t” and other slang terms (like “never had nothin’) made him come off as kind of stupid to me. I would have loved some California surfer lingo, but got none of that. It just never worked for him. And OMG, “babe” drove me nuts too.
•I felt like she kind of lost all of her spunk when she gave in, and became a bit of a pushover.
•I actually liked Tori better in the first book.
•I didn't like how the female narrator did Jamie.
•Jamie had some major a-hole moments that weren’t “alphahole” moments, they were straight up a-hole. I did not like him calling her a bi*ch, at all.
The Down & Dirty:
Hit the Spot was the second in the Dirty Deeds series, and I totally look forward to the next. I really enjoyed this audiobook, but for me it paled a little in comparison to the first, Four Letter Word, which I loved. I fell in love with Jamie and Tori in the first book, but they seemed to have very different personalities in Hit The Spot. I loved Tori’s feisty resistance until she broke down and gave in, then she became a bit of a doormat. I loved Jamie’s relentless pursuit and cocky flirting until he lost it on her and called her names. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed the story very much, but the thing that really bothered me, maybe because the audiobook made it stand out, was the way Jamie spoke. No pronouns, ain’t, babe. double negatives, nuthin’…these things made him seem a little on the stupid side, and not at all like a California surfer. Still, I love my pushy alphas; I am enjoying the series and totally look forward to the next.
Rating: 4 Stars, 4.5 heat, 4 Narration
Jaime of course. I've loved him since the first book. I loved his personality. he was crazy with a really big heart.
Jaime of course.
It made me laugh all thru it. It made me cry a little bit at the end.
I waited for this book to come out as soon as I knew it would be one coming. It did not let me down. I think this one was better then Four Letter Word.
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
The first words surfer Jamie said to waitress Tori were "fuck me babe", followed by months of more crude and demeaning comments. Rather than trying to get to know Tori, Jamie's total focus was making another sex conquest.
After almost 5 hours of listening, there was no discernable character development, just lots sexual sparing leading to a stupid bet. Jamie acted like a horny teenager with violent tendencies but deluded himself into believing he had real feelings.
I couldn't imagine what Tori saw in the alpha jerk besides a sexy male body. She didn't seem to have any self-esteem or direction in life. Jamie may have been a good friend and caring brother but treated women as objects to be conquered, not equals.
In spite of her sassy mouth, Tori was too passive to be interesting or engaging. It was obvious that eventually pathetic Tori would allow Jamie to ruthlessly dominate & abuse her body, mind and heart.
Since there could be no happy ending, I quit listening when Jamie started hurting Tori. Not sexy, not erotic, not romantic.
A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!
It started really slow but ended well. I will buy the next one. Good writing.
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
I absolutely fell in love with Jamie McCade. He came across as super flighty and kind of a moron at first but I warmed up to him quickly and by the end, he was my new book boyfriend. I thought 4 Letter Word was my favorite J Daniels book but I think Hit the Spot just stole that honor.
Sebastian York was of course, absolute perfection. Kate Russell is a great narrator but I don't feel this was the right role for her. She has an older, more mature voice and I think the role calls for someone younger sounding.
J. Daniels is an amazingly creative author. Her story telling is phenomenal, and Hit the Spot is no different. Another must read! And the narrators os this one are amazing! Only add to the magic.
