Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

3.5 stars for Hit The Spot which is the second book in the Dirty Deeds series. While this can be read as a stand alone I think you would appreciate the dynamic of all the characters if you read book one - Four Letter Word - first. This story features the best friends of the H/h from book one who've had an intense attraction from the moment they met, but were both at very different places in their lives to do anything about it. Times and circumstances have changed and they both know that it's time to "fish or cut bait".
Tori Rivera is a beautiful, curvy blonde that has an MBA from Duke, but she choses to waitress at Whitecaps part-time as she doesn't really need the money. When she first meets the incredibly handsome and arrogant Jamie she is in a relationship and gets offended by his over-zealous attitude. Over time though they develop a love-hate relationship as they watch their best friends fall in love. Tori quickly realizes that the more time she spends with Jamie the less she seems to hate him, but she is well aware of his man-whoring ways and refuses to be another notch on his bed post.
Jamie McCade is one of the best surfers in the world and co-owns Wax with his friend Brian. He has been all around the world and sampled many different women yet the feisty blonde who throws insults at him every chance she gets is the only one he wants. Jamie is willing to do whatever it takes to be with Tori and finally prove her wrong.
I loved so many things about this book. The intense, smoking hot chemistry between Jamie and Tori lit the sheets and my kindle on fire. The close friendships that they all have with the hilarious banter back and forth had me laughing out loud. Then of course there is the perfection that is caring, sweet & sexy - Jamie McCade. So why the 3.5 star review? I was not at all a fan of Tori in this book. She did a complete turn around from how she was portrayed in book one and became a total drama queen. What I think was meant as angst came across more as Tori being bipolar, but thankfully in the end she redeemed herself and got it together. I love this series and hope Daniels continues on with the other characters as they too would be a story I would definitely want to read :)


Tori slapped the counter and gained everyone’s attention when she started yelling, “I did not run you over, Jamie! Jesus Christ! Quit spreading lies about me!”
“It ain’t lies if it's true!” I yelled back, glaring at her.
A laugh bubbled in her throat. She tilted her head and stuck her hand on her hip. “Please. I'm sure you're still able to bang everything with a pulse, as usual, which means you’re fine. Get over it, and grow some balls. I cried less when I watched Bambi the first time.”
“Who's hungry?” Syd asked nonchalantly, moving behind her friend to round the island and stand near the stove.
I ignored her question because, what the fuck? Grow some balls?
“I gotta pair, babe,” I told Legs, reaching down and palming my shit. “You should know since you've been all up on ’em the past nine months.”
She rolled her eyes. “You're disgusting.”
I felt my mouth twitch.
And that was when, for some fucked up reason, I reverted back to my old ways with Tori Rivera, forgetting all about how much I fucking hated her and instead going full-on, hell-bent determined to get an admission out of that smart-ass mouth.
“You want it,” I countered, tipping my chin up.
She wasn’t expecting that. No more than I was. It threw her off.
Her shoulders pulled back and her lips parted.
Then, maybe to cover her tell, or maybe she didn't have control over what was flying out of her mouth either, I didn't know, but she brought her other hand to her hip, glared at me with heat flashing in her eyes, tipped forward, and shot back with attitude, “You want it.”
Well shit. This was new. Legs was challenging me and she was doing it flirting. There was no doubt in my mind.
 “Sorry, babe,” I said, keeping the smirk and letting go of my junk. “Not interested. I told you yesterday, I’m done waitin’ around. But you?” I pointed my beer at her. “You’ll be beggin' for it before the month is up. Just watch.”
“Fat chance,” she snapped. “I wouldn't sleep with you if my life depended on it.”
“Wanna bet?”
“Bet what?”
“What's going on right now?” Syd called out, but I wasn't pausing to answer her.
I smiled at Tori, then gestured between us, explaining, “First one to break and come crawling to the other person for sex, loses.”
“Are you serious?” She laughed, not in amusement but in disbelief.
“Yeah, I’m serious,” I answered. 
“You want to bet me that I'll want to have sex with you before you try and have sex with me?” she questioned, moving her finger between us. “You, the guy who has been hitting on me for nine straight months and has been rejected for nine straight months? You seriously think I'll not only want to have sex with you, but I'll beg you for it? Is that what I just heard?”
I nodded slowly. I had this in the bag. “A rule. No fuckin’ anyone unless it's each other.”
Her eyes bugged.
“And no masturbating either,” I added, raising my beer and using it to gesture. “Since we both know when you do it you’re thinkin’ about me, and if you're that fuckin’ horny you need to rub one out or you'll fuckin' explode, you can come to me, Legs, beg, and I'll put that fire out for you.”
