**I received an ARC in exchange for honest review**
Let’s misbehave is the latest book in the Summerhill series by the lovely Kate Perry. It can be read as a standalone, but why would you want to do that? You really should read the other books in the series to experience and get the background knowledge of the Summerhill family.
After racy videos and photo’s were leak by her ex boyfriend to the press, all Imogen (Gigi) Summerhill wants do clean up her image especially if she is going to be taken seriously as an actress. That means staying out of the public eye, and off the front pages of the tabloids.
Merrick Graham the Bad Boy of Politics is also looking to clean up his images, as he wants to gain the support of the conservatives in order to get a proposal that is very dear to his heart pass through parliament. Both are not looking for scandal, but when Gigi and Merrick meet they soon realize that this maybe not so easy, and as hard as try to stay way from each other they can’t, and a no strings secret affair becomes so much more, and even harder to hide.
I really enjoyed the storyline; it was an entertaining romantic read. Imogen was strong feisty and independent, and she knows what she wants. Merrick was sweet due to his past was a little closed off at times, and had a hard time letting people in, but once he let his guard down some of his alpha male caveman qualities came shining through. Oh! And he owned a motorbike ;)
I like Imogen and Merrick, as soon as these two meet you could feel the chemistry between them. Sparks were definitely flying every time they met both in, and out of the bedroom. They both could be headstrong at times, but they were good together, had great banter, and just what they needed.
I loved the interaction with the other Summerhill sisters; they are such a great support group for each other they made me laugh so many times. . I'm looking forward to reading Tatiana’s story next. Just like all the books there is a secondary story running alongside the main one, and was a cute tale about single mum Holly who was Imogen new handler. I hope to see more of her in future books
Overall Let’s misbehave was another book by Kate that I read with a grin on my face. Its no secret that I love Kate’s writing style, I just know what I’m going to get, and I’m never left disappointed. In fact this quote from Imogen about why she feels that acting is her calling “ I give people a two hour respite from their problems. I help them laugh or cry and they leave my movies feeling. It’s a powerful thing” I just had to highlight, as it’s what Kate does for me when reading one of her books. If you are looking for an enjoyable, steamy romantic easy read, then this book is just for you.
“His voice liked dusk, and hot baths, and chocolate, all rolled into one. Her favorite things”
“He saw the woman in white. He stopped the sight of her knocking the breath out of him”
“He made it clear she wasn’t what he needed. He wasn’t what she needed either, even if she wanted him”
“He didn’t know what he was. All he know was that what he was feeling was driving him crazy”
“Merrick was special. More that that he made her feel special. He understood her and her ambitions, and he supported her”
Kate has tangoed at midnight with a man in blue furry chaps, dueled with flaming swords in the desert, and strutted on bar tops across the world and back. She’s been kissed under the Eiffel Tower, had her butt pinched in Florence, and been serenaded in New Orleans. But she found Happy Ever After in San Francisco with her Magic Man.
Kate's the bestselling author of the Laurel Heights Novels, as well as the Pillow Talk and Guardians of Destiny series. She's been translated into several languages and is quite proud to say she's big in Slovenia. All her books are about strong, independent women who just want love.
Most days, you can find Kate in her favorite café, working on her latest novel. Sometimes she's wearing a tutu. She may or may not have a jeweled dagger strapped to her thigh...
