Sexy Off-Limits Love
Yep, Eve Jagger is an author that I will read without hesitation. And Knox is a shining example of exactly why that is. With a dirty alpha with all the right moves and a strong leading lady who wants what she wants, Knox is a book that is sure to satisfy steamy romance readers.
If there is no romantic situation that defies the bro code with your best mate, it’s hooking up with his little sister. Even if she is the most smoking woman you have ever laid your eyes on (and let’s be real hands, mouth and tongue as well). That is the predicament that Cooper Knox finds himself in when he learns the one night stand he can’t get out of his mind is his best friends little sister, Shelby. Although he is determined to do the right thing, the pull of attraction is way too strong and soon these two find themselves in a cladastine but extremely hot relationship.
Shelby is determined not to get involved with an athlete – she has to deal with them every day. But there is something about Knox that she just can’t get past. It’s more than his smoking good looks and downright sinful moves. But is it worth the strain it could put on her relationships with her brother and friends? She knows the smart decision but for once she is going to do something for herself.
Eve does steamy romance just the way it is meant to be written. A storyline that holds your interest, invests you in the relationship, turns you on to melting point and brings in great secondary characters that add so much to the book. Each book that I have read of hers has been effortless and Knox had me turning the pages while simultaneously wanting to get to the end and slow down.
The sex is downright delicious and both characters bring such an amazing energy that you never feel it has been forced upon you or over the top. If you want fade to black then this is definitely not for you.
The angst flows like an undercurrent through the entire book but doesn’t disrupt the flow. There were moments when I really, genuinely felt for both characters. Eve did an amazing job of not making the story drown under it.
Without a doubt I highly recommend this book. Knox is a dirty, angsty, sexy tale of finding love in the most off limits of places. I can’t wait to read about the rest of the gang falling, especially Jackson. A must read for this year.

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.
