He makes her blush and curl her toes

The Powers That Be #2
by Harper Bentley
a Contemporary College Romance

Zeke Powers should’ve come with a warning label.

He was hot.

He was sexy.

And he was a bad boy through and through.

The things he said to me had me blushing and my toes curling.

But he was someone I totally didn’t need walking into my life, screwing up the plans I’d made and turning my world upside down.

Although I’d been living a no-frills, no-fun existence, I felt it was necessary to get where I was going. Keep your eye on the prize and all that.

But Zeke was determined to prove to me that what I desired most—him—was just what I needed.

Review by pearls

Time to once again be swept off your feet by a Powers brother.  Older brother Zeke is the rare combination of sports and brains, raised to be polite to women and kind to children.  He is funny and charming.  The story takes us through his pursuit of Scarrlett, another student more focused upon her education and career goals than on the hottest boy on campus.  He supports her, showing she can have both worlds.  The only part I didn't like was the description of Scarlett:  Nothing about her screams 24 years old.  But as long as Zeke is in the scene, you're not really looking at anyone else.

Released December 2014
Gable Powers had all the makings of everything my father had ever warned me about: a reputation that was anything but stellar, a dirty mouth that had me shivering at the things he uttered in my ear, and a body (oh, God, that body) that was covered in tattoos, all of which added up to a solid ten-point-oh on the bad-boy scale.

The first time I met him, I instantly loathed him.

The second time was even worse.

He was a jerk. He was an ass.

He had secrets.

He was nothing I thought I ever wanted.

So why couldn’t I resist him?
