Sexy. Famous. A player on and off the field.
Cooper Knox has a body built for sex and sin, and he’s my dirty little secret.
He was supposed to be a one-night stand – but now he’s back in town, and he’s going to find out the truth.
I’m his best friend’s little sister: off-limits and totally out of his league.
We swore we’d stay away from each other.
Our secret could destroy everything.
But Knox always gets what he wants.
And he wants me

“Yeah, well, now that Knox is back in town, we’re gonna have to find him a steady girl,” Cassie says, furrowing her brow as if she’s scanning her mental rolodex.
“Yeah, between the two of us we know plenty of girls who are still single.” Savannah pulls her phone out, ready to start scrolling through her contacts.
Cash laughs. “Don’t hold your breath, ladies. The local diamond dolls are gonna be all over our boy here. Let him enjoy it before you start trying to chain him down.”
Groupies. I’ve gotta admit—the routine gets old, but the eye candy never fails to tempt me. Like I said, you only live once. “Hey, the last girl I hooked up with didn’t even know who I was,” I can’t help pointing out.
Ryder laughs. “Is that what she told you?”
I roll my eyes.
“Did you find her hidden under a rock, then? I hear those cloistered nuns are hot.” Cash grins at me, that old twinkle in his eye. He’d never mess around on Savannah, but I swear that’s made him worse than ever about hounding me to go hook up in his place.
“Actually, I met her right here in this fine establishment of ours.”
“Nice. Hooking up in the library—exactly what we had in mind,” Cash says with more than a little enthusiasm.
“You say that like we haven’t already,” Savannah butts in with a pointed eyebrow, which earns her a high-five from Cassie.
“Hey don’t change the subject,” Ryder interrupts. “You’ve been holding out on us, bro. When was this? And who, someone from school?”
“New Year’s. And nope. Never seen her before in my life. Or since, for that matter.”
It may not have been the first time a New Year’s countdown and a whole bunch of booze ended with a girl screaming my name, but this time was different. For one thing, this time I was sober enough that my memory of the way she felt beneath me in that baseball field is still seared red-hot into my brain. The number of times I’ve relived that night, her hands all over me, her breathing heavy as she urged my fingers closer to her soaking panties . . .
“So that’s where you disappeared that night, you dirty dog!” Cash punches my arm across the table.
Savannah laughs and tops off her and Cash’s glasses of bubbly with the last of the champagne. “Anybody you care to see again?”
Yeah, you could definitely say that. If I knew how to find her, that is.
“Would if I could,” I admit. “But she was a one-and-done kinda girl. Said no when I asked for her digits.”
“Oooooh,” Ryder says. “Love ‘em and leave ‘em. The very best kind.”
Cassie punches him in the arm and steals his drink out from under him. “A mystery woman, nice. What did she look like? Maybe she’s a regular.”
I open my mouth to describe her—long brown hair, huge, sexy, deep brown eyes, a sway in her step when she walks, a gravelly voice when she’s coming—okay maybe I wouldn’t have added that last part. But right as I’m about to start speaking, a knee collides with me from behind.
I manage to keep from dropping my scotch, though just barely. I’m about to spin around and bark a curse at whoever just staggered into me, when Jackson, who’s been oddly quiet so far, stiffens. “Oh, hey,” he says, looking not at me, but above and behind me.
Everyone’s eyes follow his, and I turn around to find myself staring up at a familiar face.
“What, that’s your only greeting to your beloved little sister?”
There, standing behind me, close enough to touch, close enough that I can smell the familiar floral bite of her perfume, is my not-so-mysterious-after-all New Year’s hookup. Grinning sarcastically while looking straight at Jackson.
Little sister? Jackson’s younger sister is my mysterious New Year’s hookup?
You have got to be kidding me.
Baseball may just be my new favorite sport, and it’s all because of hottie pitcher Cooper Knox!
We got a little glimpse of the charismatic, sexy ball player in A Night With Knox, and that definitely made me want more than one night!
This book starts out where ANWK ends: with Knox getting traded from the Yankees back to Atlanta. While he’s excited to be back in his hometown and with his friends, he’s in for a very big surprise. The girl he’s been dreaming of since New Years, the one night stand he thought he’d never see again, is his best friends sister.
Shelby Masters knew she was playing with fire when she set out to seduce Knox on New Years Eve. Wanting more than ever to get out from her overprotective big brothers thumb, she figured one night that no one knew about wouldn’t mean anything. Especially since he lived in New York. Now that Knox is back, not only does she need to keep the secret, she needs to try and deny her attraction to the famous pitcher.
Here’s what I love about their story. Set aside the smoldering sex, and the two have a fantastic connection. They can hold conversations and just be with each other. Both are strong characters, but each has a sweet vulnerability that make them so likeable. Neither one really likes keeping their budding relationship a secret from the group, and especially her brother. What starts out as a purely physical attraction ends on a much sweeter note, and you find yourself cheering for them.
This is another fantastic addition to the Sexy Bastards series, and I PRAY that Eve brings us Jackson next. I’m DYING to get my hands on him and see what makes him tick! This can definitely be read as a stand-alone (as all of the Sexy Bastards can) but I HIGHLY recommend reading A NIGHT WITH KNOX first, to get the complete delicious picture.
