When I started reading this series with The Agency group, Max and Eva had me intrigued from the first book. Max is one of the partners working for the talent agency and Eva is best friends and stylist to James Ryne (from Signed).
Max & Eva’s story begins in the book Signed, we got snippets in Endorsed, and we finally get their story in Contracted. And let me say this, I knew it would be good, it would interesting, and I was so excited to get their full story in their own book. Now, after getting it, I barely have any hair left.
I barely have finger nails left
I need a drink, or ten
But even with all that, this author had me loving so hard on Max and Eva! Their relationship, oh goodness, where do I begin…… It was basically friends with benefits, but exclusively. They lived on opposite coasts, saw each other a few times a month. So what happens when one of them decides to want MORE??
“I want to wake up next to you every morning. I want to eat breakfast with you when we get home from the gym. I want to jump in the shower with you as you’re getting ready for work. I want to see your face over candlelight. I want your lips to be the last thing I kiss before I close my eyes.”
The other one doesn’t want that. Wants to continue to just be sex buddies. Yes he has feelings for her, but not as deep as her feelings for him. Predictable plot, predictable outcome for me, however, I LOVED IT!!!
So when Eva takes a job overseas for 6 months, how will Max handle this?? Will he let her go, will he stop her by confessing his love, will he beg her to stay?
If you’ve read Signed and Endorsed, you will definitely want to read this one. We are gifted all the characters and I am just in love with this group. The angst level is crazy for me during this read, I was pissed off at Max for a lot of this book, but he definitely redeemed himself for me in the end. I can not wait for Scarlett’s book. If its anything like this one, it’ll just keep getting better and better than the last book =)))
