They call me an outcast like it's a bad thing.
An asshole byproduct of a shitty upbringing. I don't care about anything except myself and my little sister.
I will always protect what’s mine.
With one year left on my hockey contract I'm keeping my head down and my eyes on the goal.
A collision, with her, changes my entire existence.
Never fall in love with a sports star. That's what my stepfather always said. He told me athletes are complicated and moody—that the higher their paycheck, the lower their morals.
As public relations for the New York Stingers I know exactly what he means, but I can’t seem to say no to a friendship with one beautiful, damaged man.
What started out as hate turned into something else.
We tried to stay away, to keep our distance, but the pull was too strong.
Something forbidden turned into something so irresistible.
Welp, if that prologue doesn’t hook you from the get-go, I don’t know what will. I haven’t read the other books in this series but that’s not necessary – SOMETHING SO IRRESISTIBLE can be read a standalone.
Max is as douche-y as it gets. He and Allison butt heads as soon as they are in each other’s orbit. The dislike is mutual, the hate-lust, too. Unfortunately they have to work together so they can’t avoid each other at all times. And when the dislike turns into cautious affection, they start a cat-and-mouse game because no one must know – Allison’s family would blow a gasket, collectively, because of Max’ actions in the past.
I look down at my cock and scold him. “She’s in the no fly zone, buddy.” He twitches on his own, basically saying “fair game.”
Max is a certified A-grade asshole but gradually Allison makes him softer. I loved that she could do that, she brought out sides of him nobody knew he had. He handled Allison like something precious, invaluable. She hung the stars for him and it was endearing to see how the guy who never had much love in his life basked in their relationship. He was totally starry-eyed (and some would say pussy-whipped).
“Since you marked me, can I mark you?” she asks me and I don’t give a shit if she fucking spells out her name in hickeys.
Allison is a spunky heroine, not taking the crap Max is dealing and giving back as good as she gets. However, she loses a little of her edge and spirit and after 60% of the book it seemed to me that everyone and especially the heroine started tearing up all the time. I’m not immune to emotional situations but while I really loved Allison that was a little over the top. However, she stood by her man and from the moment they decide to give their love a shot it is almost smooth sailing. Almost. Remember what I said about the prologue? Never forget that one.
Now, with all that being said, I enjoyed the hell out of this story. I adored Max, admired Allison and their banter was funny. And lets not forget how sweet and adorable these two were together. There was no doubt that they were “it” for one another.
I picked up the first two books in this series because while we get all the necessary details about Max I still want to know more. Plus, the glimpse I got of Allison’s parents and her brother got me hooked!
Natasha Madison is a new-to-me author who leaves a great impression. Something So Irresistible checked all my boxes, it was sexy and hilarious, sweet and romantic and the storytelling and plot were very enjoyable. I love the author’s alpha males and their head-strong women so I’m definitely going to check out her other books!
Fucking cat sat on my face. I have to admit it’s the most action I got in the last six months. I’m over the girls, the puck bunnies, the meaningless sex.
