He's used to coming out on top...until desire brings him to his knees.
Sterling Vance is focused on two things: building his bodyguard agency and finding a nice, commitment-minded woman to date. The first one is easy - winning in business comes naturally. The second? Tricky, especially in the online dating world. At least when it comes to his friend's pregnant daughter, he's sure of himself. She got into trouble, so it makes perfect sense to move her into his place. Until unexpected attraction shoots them straight from platonic to "pass the lube".
Proving she can take care of her baby on her own is Angelina McFee's top priority. At least it was until Sterling gives her what he thinks she needs - then retreats behind his in-control façade. Curious to discover if he ever lets loose, she sets up a fake online profile...and gets an eyeful that ties her up in orgasmic knots. Yet one thing still scares the hell out of her: falling for him. But as the secret she's hiding pushes closer to the surface, and her determined ex closes in, it could already be too late....
Warning: Watch out for dirty talk, dirtier pictures, and the occasional tie used as restraint. Handle with care - objects in the mirror are hotter than they look.

The witty banter between Sterling Vance (age 31, friend of Ang's father) and Angelina/Ang (age 22, 23 in 1 month, pregnant by Pete Lamont) was glue that held this story together. But there wasn't much else. Well, that's not true. After they got started, there was plenty of sex, only sex, it seems.
Sterling and his unusual nature as a hero and love-interest in a romance was great, but I didn't like his match with Ang. He seemed to bring so, so much more to the table that his joining with Ang just didn't work for me. He was a successful nerdy kind of guy who wasn't into casual sex, so he wasn't the type of guy to need or want a much younger (8-9 year age difference) woman & one particularly like Ang to bolster his ego or anything else.
Angelina initiated the sexual part of their relationship, which Sterling liked to some degree. Then he really liked how she was different from other women he was romantic with. Ang had tattoos, multi-colored hair, a funky dressing style, had casual sex and was a straight-A engineering student. She wasn't unlikable; she just didn’t' seem to be a good match for Sterling. And, unfortunately, their falling in love seemed to be entirely based on good sex. It was a let-down.
