REVIEW: Getting Rough (Monkey Business #2) by C.L. Parker


Okay so I really botched posting order of this series and WHOOOOPS. So technically this post has been sitting in drafts for fucking ages. So let’s just pretend I didn’t finish this awesome series months ago and you never saw spoilers. K? Good.

Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom—and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotion—but only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidy—just not her pity. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignity—and maybe the woman he’s hungry to claim once more.

Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams—until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn’t letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous heartthrob Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behind—and who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw’s seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it’s for the highest stakes of all.

So YAY omg part 2 of monkey business definitely has a lot of character development for Cassidy and Shaw.

Like when I say MAJOR DEVELOPMENT, I am not shitting you.

We left off on book one with Shaw winning the major sports contract, learning his new player was GAY and earning a major company position. However, Cassidy has gone M.I.A after a family emergency and Shaw thinks shes just a sour loser. So with the ego of a moron, he decides to FOLLOW HER HOME. Not so bright but he does get a glimpse at the real life of Cassidy.

Her parents are sweethearts and Shaw also gets to meet the much talked about Casey (pissing contest ensues) and a new character named Mia. Mia has no idea what weirdness she is in the center of, bless her heart and she also makes me want to clobber Cassidy a few times too.

There are a few additional P.O.V chapters for the newbs that I didn’t think I would enjoy but I really did love because it gave such great insight to their motives.

Was the ending expected? Just a wee bit but OMFG THE PREVIEW! GET IT GET IT! Bring the tears.
