In Working It, New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan delivered a sexy and addictive contemporary romance about Emmy Clarke, a sweet southern girl out of her depth in New York City’s cutthroat fashion industry, and Ben Shaw, the hot male model who introduced her to a world of pleasure. But their story is far from complete…
Emmy Clarke is no quitter. Toughened by her experience working for fashion heavyweight Fiona Stone, Emmy has come a long way from her country girl roots, embracing her fast-paced and unpredictable life in New York City.
Though that life comes with more than a few complications.
First there’s the mystery of Fiona’s pregnancy, which may or may not involve Emmy’s boyfriend, superstar male model Ben Shaw. Emmy has always known that Ben comes with more baggage than she can handle—and not the Louis Vuitton kind. Yet Ben is the only man who has ever loved Emmy for who she is, and she wants nothing more than to do the same for him, even if it means forgiving his past and overlooking their wildly different lifestyles.
But when a shocking secret from Ben’s past comes to light, unraveling all of their progress, Emmy must decide if their relationship is worth the fight, or if it’s time to ignore her passion for him and let go.
He’s back bitches…THE BEN SHAW is back! And he is hotter and dirtier and more fuckable than ever.
I totally need a piece of that ass and for those of you living under a rock that haven’t gotten him before NEED TO ASAP and get with the freakin’ program! Believe me, I thought I was in love with him in Working It, but hell, this will blow your panties right off. You know what…fuck it, leave the panties off for this one because they will just melt off anyways just like mine did.
“Being in New York and back with Ben was emotionally overwhelming. I certainly hadn’t expected to run right into his arms again. But then again, nothing about our relationship was expected.”
Finally, finally, finally Ben and Emmy are together again. Ben had stopped Emmy at the airport the night prior and begged her to hear him out and come home with him. He needed to explain himself so they could deal with their issues together not apart as they were.
“I was desperately in love with this girl. I needed to show her that she could trust me. I wouldn’t fuck this up again.”
Emmy needed to see that their relationship wasn’t just a game to him.
“I had both of my eyes wide open, and I would wait to see how it all unfolded.”
And included in the “it” was that twatwaffle Fiona’s pregnancy. Fiona had taken advantage of Ben during that drunken night months ago and they were still unsure of who the baby daddy was. That delusional bitch, Fiona was upping her game this round and still trying to sink her claws in Ben.
“Enjoy him while you can. We’re going to be a family soon. We’ll have a forever connection. What will you have? Your memories of a great shag?”
Ummm, come again Fiona? I would’ve slapped the crap outta that bitch if she ever said that to me, several times I might add! Pregnant or not she would have an imprint of my hand on her cheek.
I was team Ben and Emmy all the freakin’ way, praying that neither his secrets nor his past would break them up again but you know how that goes, men always seem to screw something up. Because you know what…
”Romance novels and movies paint a too-rosy picture. Real life has its ups and downs.”
But do these ups and downs prove to be too much for them both or will they be the forever type?
So go settle in with a nice glass of wine and some of my Ben Shaw. And let’s toast to “Sex in hot tubs. Dirty texts. And love without end.” Peace out Schmexies!
