Ball Peen hammer Cover



Keane Morgan wouldn’t return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn’t want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin’ choice in the matter–at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax’s coveted parking spot at UCLA.


Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated. And, honestly, what kind of guy uses the phrase “baby doll” with a straight face? Oh, that’s right: the kind of guy who’s a male stripper.


Yup, the cocky jerk turned out to be Seattle’s answer to Magic Mike, a stripper known as “Ball Peen Hammer”–which meant Keane Morgan was emphatically not the kind of guy I’d ever fall for.


Not. At. All.


No freakin’ way.


Well, until Keane convinced me to fall for him, that is.


Which I did.

I JUST finished! Well maybe 10 mins ago.
In the start of the book, you sorta dislike Keane (at least I did), because you can’t imagine this guy is for real. Like Maddy says “he’s like Daffy Duck in Prince Charming’s body”. And boy is he. The way he talks and projects himself is what makes him unbelievable. 
But just like over the course of the car trip, I learned what makes Keane tick and that made me love him! Just like Maddy. Maddy can see through Keane’s – err BPH’s persona and see the Keane underneath. 
Maddy believes in Keane like no one else has. Keane has been BPH for so long, that’s all anyone sees. Until now. 
A great book, hilarious characters and just a feel-good read! 

5 stars!
