She's the one girl he should never touch...
Cooper Grayson is supposed to hole up in a mountain cabin and protect his best friend's little sister from the paparazzi for a week. That's it. But Paris O'Connell isn't a kid anymore, and it's hard to remember this is strictly business when she bats her big green eyes at him...then crashes through all his carefully placed boundaries.
Paris loves a challenge. And gorgeous Cooper Grayson is the most dangerous challenge she's faced yet. He ignores the sizzling attraction that keeps her awake at nights, and he doesn't care about her fame or her contacts, only seeing her. When they finally kiss, Cooper leaves her bare. Exposed. His for the taking. And take he does...
For one incredibly hot week, Cooper fulfils her every fantasy. But when the real world crashes in, so does reality. And reality tells them there's no way a Hollywood star and a bad boy from the wrong side of town could ever have a future together...
Ah, the best friend's sister trope. A classic, and always a very amusing read. After my adoration for Hold Me Until Midnight, I knew the next book in the Grayson Brothers series would be up my alley. Cooper and Paris have known each other since they were kids. Of course, they're both all grown up now, and even though they claim their relationship is like brother and sister, it really isn't. Not by a long shot. Their desire is burning deep and after they have to escape from paparazzi, they're all alone... and that desire is too strong to deny. Even though he's supposed to just be her bodyguard, there seems to be so much more between them. After their time is up, what will happen next?
Hold Me Until Morning was sultry and sweet. I love a good childhood friends story, especially when there's that whole underlying "don't want to upset the best friend" thing happening. Paris and Cooper have great chemistry, really making it believable that they could have a future. Christina Phillips has me hooked on this series and I can't wait for more!
