Recipe for Attraction (Madewood Brothers #2 )

Recipe for Attraction (Madewood Brothers, #2)
4 of 5 stars false

Bad boy Neil Harrison may have sexy body and an even sexier smile, but there’s no way in hell architect Carson Kelly is falling for the elusive bachelor. For starters, he’s her boss, and getting intimately involved with the infuriating alpha male could be a career-killer. And secondly, he’s battling personal demons in one of the most dangerous ways possible: illegal street racing. After a friend’s tragic death years ago, Carson swore she’d never get involved in that life again.

Neil knows Carson’s keeping secrets and he’s determined to uncover all of them…even if he has to seduce them out of her. But as their antagonistic work relationship ignites a passionate affair, Carson must decide if protecting Neil from his need for speed is the perfect outlet for her own restless desire, or if they’re on a one-way path to destruction.


****Entangled: Brazen provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
I was so happy to be asked to review Recipe for Attraction. The first in the series, Recipe for Satisfaction was a great read and I remember thinking I cannot wait for the rest of these boys to get a book!!  And here we have it.....Neil Harrison, bad boy, damaged.  Since the loss of his foster mother Vivien Madewood this boy has been on a downward spiral.....playing with fire to distract him from the dark voices that plague him. Carson Kelly is a bad girl/risk taker/thrill seeker, suppressing herself to make her daddy proud and to get hold of the business that should rightfully be hers.
Carson is the head architect on Neil's restaurant and both have been battling an attraction to each other for more than a year.
As you can imagine the tension in this book is delicious, these guys simple zing!  Neil is the alpha male that we all love...battling feelings of protectiveness, jealousy.....making an ass out of himself in the process ;) What's that saying? Love makes a fool of us all. I have a particular weakness for reading books when characters battle with these emotions and find them acting not themselves.
The steam factor in this book was not a let down. After the first one I wasn't sure we could have any hotter scenes, but hot damn Gina Gordon surprised me again. Motorbikes, trees, dining tables, windows? Very nice, I was fanning myself.
I felt this couples desperation for one another and hurt when they had to deny their feelings to get what they thought they wanted. This was another excellent contemporary romance from Gina Gordon and I can't wait for the rest of the Madewoods.
