"She wants to get Wilde. She should be careful what she asks for." --Ethan Wilde
There are worse things in life than owning a thriving business in the heart of Manhattan and being labeled one of the Big Apple's most eligible bachelors. Trust me, I know. I've had some bad $h!t go down before I got to where I am.
No matter what curve balls life lobs at me, I take a swing. If I strike out, I learn, adjust, and make the best of it. For instance, when an injury ended my dream of playing in the Bigs, I could've sunken into self-pity. When my fiancée dumped me about thirty seconds after the major league scout did, I could've become a drunk. Instead, I got off my ass, finished my senior year of college, and put the degree my baseball scholarship earned me to work.
Seven years later, I'm living a new dream. I'm single, well off, and about to take my business to the next level. I've got plans for A Pound of Flesh Fitness gyms to open nationwide.
Except the one person standing between me and my dream has become a fantasy. A hot, redheaded fantasy. My competition...my business enemy, is five feet nothing and packed full of dynamite, and I can't get her out of my mind or my fantasies. Her sexy as sin body, her sultry voice, and her bold personality that's just as fiery as her hair may have gotten under my skin, but there's no way I'll let her stay there.
Because no one gets to Ethan Wilde.
There's just one little detail I can't stop wondering about. The one thing that has brought men down since the beginning of time. I can't leave it alone until I know for sure: Is she a true redhead?
ABOUT THE CHECKMATE INC. SERIES from Bestselling Author Shelly Alexander:
Leo Foxx, Dex Moore, and Oz Strong spent their youths studying a chessboard, textbooks… and women, from afar. Now they’re players in the city that never sleeps. Gone are their shy demeanors, replaced with muscle, style, and enough sex appeal to charm women of all ages, shapes, and cup sizes. They’ve got it all, including a multimillion-dollar business called Checkmate Inc.—a company they founded together right out of college.
Some guys are late bloomers, but once they hit their stride, they make up for lost time.
And the bonus? The founding partners of Checkmate Inc. didn’t become successful and smokin’ hot by accident. They were smart enough to surround themselves with guys who helped them transform into the men they are today. So get ready for more stories about the hotties who are connected to Checkmate Inc.
A fun, flirty, and dirty contemporary series in which the sizzling hot players associated with Checkmate Inc. meet their matches.
