Summery (goodreads):
Ruby Scott is a beautiful, quiet event planner who leads an oh-so-respectable life. Yet the things that go on in her secret fantasies are anything but. She has every intention of keeping her hidden desires under wraps-until she meets a gorgeous, hard-muscled man ten years her junior. Mark St. Crow is a gifted, up-and-coming musician who collects erotic art and loves to "play" women as much as his piano. After one night of uninhibited passion, Ruby realizes there's no turning back. But as she surrenders to her deepest needs and lets Mark control every forbidden thrill, her passion for him builds. Can the wild, intoxicating nights they share lead to a love that will last forever? 

Ruby Scott is an event planner who has a thing for being organized. She's sworn off dating artists and musicians and has had previous family experience with and witnessed what it's like to be with someone like a musician who's music always comes first. That and the insane amounts of travel. Mark St. Crow is the lead in one of the hottest bands and for lack of better words, is a complete slut!  When Ruby's best friend's husband decides to work with Mark St. Crow's band, it means they'll be working in the same building together and getting close (or in too far) with Mark isn't something that Ruby want's any part of.

I did like the story between Mark and Ruby, I liked how she was attempting to resist him all the time, attempting to always end it after every encounter and I loved his persistence for her. It was a little hard to relate to the character since there wasn't as much of a back story to Ruby and Mark like there was with Joy and Ash in Dare to Surrender. Also the small scenes with Ruby helping her best friend with her marriage was great. I love how in Lilli's books there's always the best friend dilemma too, makes the main characters feel more real.

My favorite part of the entire book though had to be the brief one page scene where Joy bangs the door into Ash and they meet for the first time. I think I actually screamed "AHH! JOY AND ASH!"

I liked this book but I didn't like it half as much as I liked Dare to Surrender. Mark and Ruby didn't have that deep connection.
