Clay Maxwell is a smart, quick witted, sex-driven, manwhore with the good looks to match. Plenty of women have shared his bed, but only one has ever been constant, Andrea.
Their rules were simple. When they’re together, it’s just the two of them. When they’re apart, anything is fair game. And it worked. For ten years.
But one of them has changed the game…
Clay must decide if his player ways are worth losing the one girl who has always been there
So I really love the Record Series (Off The Record, On The Record, For The Record) and I was really excited when I found out that K.A. Linda had written another one. Now the first three in the series is about Brady and Liz but this book is about Brady’s brother Clay and his longtime “girlfriend” Andrea, which is a bit disappointing. However, Clay has the typical Maxwell charm so it’s easy to fall in love with him. It also helps that Andrea is a complete badass and takes crap from no one.
Clay doesn’t plan on ever settling down but when Andreas feelings change Clay is left with a decision that can make or break them. Throughout the book Clay is confused about his feelings which in turn made me confused. Half the time I couldn’t even tell who he was interested in. One sentence I thought he liked Gigi, his coworker, and the next sentence he’s pining after Andrea. It was a bit frustrating trying to figure it out. It gets better about two-thirds of the way through when things start shaping up.
Clay tends to be a bit shallow with nothing to offer other than his charm and prowess in bed. If it wasn’t for Andrea forcing the issue I think that Clay would never have changed or realized what he had right in front of his face.
I love nothing more than a fierce, independent female character and that’s exactly what you get with Andrea. She refuses to put up with Clay’s indecisiveness and instead of dwelling on it she tries her best to move on. She shows that whether or not she’s with him she’s going to be her own person and make the most out of her life. I like that she stuck to her guns even when the going got tough. She’s definitely my kind of girl.
