Bending the Rules is the fifth book in the Wicked Warrens series by Marie Harte. This book can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel but some of the characters found in this book are in some of the prior books.
Rex Samson is a southern man who uses his southern accent to his advantage. He is a hot and sexy man who seems to get whatever he wants until he meets Natalie. She is the first challenge in his life and that intrigues him. What I loved about Rex is he was a submissive in the bedroom only. He could take charge in all the other aspects of his life.
Natalie Wielder is the city planner who is new to town. She is one tough lady, keeping those that work with her in line and on time. Its apparent that while she has had kinky thoughts she never acted on it until given the chance with Rex. I loved how she was so straight-laced at work and kinky in the bedroom.
The connection between Natalie and Rex is blistering. I enjoyed seeing Rex challenged by someone. He had to work for Natalie’s attention and affection. He is so used to getting things handed to him it’s a wakeup call to him. I think that’s what makes the connection deeper between them. The sex scenes were scorching.
I found this book is well written. The story was very believable. The main characters and the secondary characters are interesting and appealing. I enjoyed the ending of the story immensely even if it was a bit predicable. Overall, this was a great story. I will be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series.
A little Southern charm and a Yes, Mistress goes a long way.
Rex Samson is at the top of his game. His business is booming, his family loves him, and there's no woman--or man--he can't charm. Until he meets Natalie Wielder, a tough-as-nails city planner. She's firm, sexy, and exactly what he needs--a woman to put him in his place. She's also all work and no play, and that won't do at all.
Nat has better things to do than play with the mayor's golden boy, but orders are orders. Accompanying him to a mandatory social function, she's shocked that she thoroughly enjoys herself.
The light-hearted Rex likes the finer--and kinkier--things in life...but freaky, no-gender-barred sex is a definite no-no in the conservative Deep South.
When Rex hands over the reins in bed, she can't resist taking them. And soon she's breaking rule number one: no dating the enemy.
Before long, she realizes there's no living without him. But Rex's kinky proclivities mirror hers--neither of which is good for her career--and she's forced to figure out what's really important. Her rules, or love?
Warning: Contains a successful, carefree hedonist who wants to be dominated, and a sexy, career-minded vixen who is more than willing to oblige. Not one drop of vanilla in sight. Enjoy!
