Part of a series I started to suspect it while reading it there were some references about the older Steel brothers that made me realized this was a series To say I was surprised that this was the tenth book in a series is an understatement even tough I felt this book belonged to a series I can honestly say Private Arrangements can be read as a stand alone without a problemThere were many things a iked about this book as there were others I didn t ike much I had a problem iking Jonas he was to cocky for my taste the Way He Treated Women he treated women a bit too much for me He s a thirty something guy who has never had a stable relationship he allegedly sleeps with a different woman every night Jonas Steel The master of one night stands The man who had a revolving door in his bedroom I understand that in some cases the main character is a man with a reputation but in Jonas case his reputation was too much for me I also don t ike heroes who freuent prostitutes for me that s a big red flag In this book Jonas didn t go to a brothel he was busy with Nikki but his ittle brother went after Jonas recommended him the brothel he ikes the most in Las Vegas and of course with the advice to bring plenty of condoms because he was going need them Nikki is the sweet girl who dreams with the perfect man kids and a the with the white picket fence I A treatise on the law of marital rights in Texas liked that she knew what she was getting into she is a smart woman and was responsible for the conseuences of her actions The chemistry between Jonas and Nikki is present since the first page it was fun seeing them try to fight it until they succumbed to temptation The sex scenes were hot but the internal dialogues were aittle bit over the top making them kind of funny I not sure if that was Mrs Jackson intentions but the very florid anguage only helped to bring the smiles but something about being here with him was getting to her He was a hunter and could pick up the scent of an aroused woman a mile off And some part of his presence and their conversation had turned her on He was certain of it By the way he s not a shifter or anything ike that he s a mere human I guess with a highly developed sense of smell She began nibbling her bottom Lots of Hearts lip which meant she was nervous He felt his erection throb which mean he was horny Every single rumor she d heard whispered about him and his deadly steadyickity split seemingly mile ong tongue was true The sensations surging through her were over the top off the charts mind boggling and earth shatteringly explosive his mind body and soul had been taken for one hell of a ride It d been one damn sexual transportation that had taken him to a whole new hemisphere maybe another universe I could uote many examples but I think you get the idea with those Don t take me wrong I kind of iked the flamboyance in the narrative because it made of this book an even funnier one Private Arrangements was my first book by Brenda Jackson but I m sure it won t be my Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession with Weight Loss last If you are into funny and sexy contemporary romance andike very cocky protagonists this book is for you This is the first Brenda Jackson book that I have enjoyed in a while and I am happy it is a Steele book because they are my favorite of all her clans Nikki and Jonas had a great Don't Hex with Texas love story Their romance played out from beginning to end and it was really a complete story This book was aot about business but it was not totally focused on the business aspect which was great and really added to the story ine Nikki and Jonas had great chemistry and really hot and steamy ove scenes This book had the feeling of the old Brenda Jackson stories that I Black Women Writers (1950-1980): A Critical Evaluation loved and made me become a fan of her workplease keep this Om his system once and for all From a whirlwind Las Vegas affair to jet setting across four continents this Steele discovers getting Nikki out of his system is easier said than done and now he wants her to belong to him heart and soul as the woman of his most passionate fantasi.
