When I walked out of his office after the hottest sex of my life, I thought I'd left Max Douglas behind me forever - along with my favorite argyle socks and my self-respect. The last thing I need is the too-serious, too-sexy former Marine living across the hall from me while he acts as a bodyguard for one of my students. Especially since he fired me from my job tutoring his brother...after we hooked up.
I shouldn't want him. I should despise him after the way he treated me. But he's exactly my type: older, experienced, in control...and it's obvious the lust is still mutual. While I may not be able to keep our relationship strictly professional, I'm determined to keep it purely physical. But when the stalker threats escalate, it looks like Max is going to be sticking around the school for a while - and the more I get to know him, the more I'm in danger of losing my heart.

I am not sure I can recommend it. I would definitely recommend other Smithfield books though.
I think Shannon knows the characters well and did a good job with them. Sometimes I could not distinguish a voice or two but RARELY, very rarely because he does try hard with them.
I think this book is a must-have if you like the other Smithfield books. otherwise, it can be overlooked. The main character is a bit shallow, worse yet, I ended up feeling sorry for the bad guy... but the story does have heart in there, somewhere, under all the superficial stuff. it's got humor, spontaneous sex and more humor. However, if you are a first time reader of the Smithfield series, I recommend you check out "Mark and Tony" or "Seth and David", these were more compelling. I do love that characters from other books show up in this book too. That's a lot of fun. It was well written and a good addition to my collection but not a book I'd try to listen to twice. Might have to listen to Mark and Tony again though...
This story is so much more than you expect. The characters are compelling and the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat. I was left wanting to experience much more of Max and Finn and Smithfield.
