He was an addict. It just wasn’t of the chemical kind.
Dale Porter is the bold and brassy new assistant at The Reese Corporation. She is working for Taylor, which is Kyran’s brother. Even though she is Taylor’s assistant she ends up working with Kyran more. Dale soon becomes the only person that really gets to know both sides of Kyran. She is familiar with the business man and comes to find out that he is also a fighter at the bar, Metro where her brother works.
He let very few people see beneath the surface
After one of Kyran’s fights Dale takes him home and watches over him. They both realize that they are attracted to each other and starting having a relationship. As Kyran and Dale grow closer there are outside sources that threaten to tear them apart.
The first thing that drew me to this book was the cover, I love it! I don’t say that often about book covers, but there is something really sexy about this one. I also found myself really drawn to Kyran. He is a very, very interesting character. I love the mix of his personality. I was charmed by Dale as she was willing to speak her mind to Kyran. She is a very strong character and I felt she was a perfect fit for him. She is also very funny at times, when she stars referencing Edward Lewis from Pretty Woman, I couldn’t stop laughing. I liked her right there. The shower scene between Kyran and Dale was OMG so hot. They have great chemistry and it is evident throughout the story.
My Favorite Quote
“I was falling in love with you. Hook.Line. And fucking sinker. You took the ground from under my feet and left me with nothing to cling to but you”
Beneath the Surface is one of the most enjoyable books I read this year. It is a well written story with really well developed characters. I found myself sucked into the story very quickly and couldn’t put the book down until it was finished. I hope to read more my books by the author.

Beneath the Surface:
When Dale agrees to Kyran’s relationship stipulation of no labels, she’s sucked into a whirlwind of lust, money, and underground boxing. The agreement to keep their lust away from the office is discarded when rules are molded to suit their ever-increasing attraction. Dale fights her growing affection, trying to hide it even when the world around them spirals out of control. All too soon she realizes she can’t hide her true feelings any longer.
Kyran begins to wonder if he’s finally met his match, and with his family falling apart before his eyes, he turns to the two things he knows will keep him sane: boxing and Dale. Those crutches can’t last forever, and when Kyran finds it harder to function he is left with a decision he never thought he’d have to make.
Could playing to win mean playing for keeps?
