"Cassidy Whalen, the sexy Irish-American sports agent, has been vying for a partnership position with Striker Sports Entertainment against the gorgeous but self-entitled Shaw Matthews, and the competition gets so heated that it leads them behind closed doors and everywhere in-between, every chance they get. But with the promotion still on the table, Cassidy is forced to drop everything when a tragedy strikes and calls her back home. Shaw's not going to let her off the hook that easy. He shows up at her door fuming about her quick departure and how slighted he feels that Cassidy handed him the partnership that she'd worked so hard to secure. Seeing Shaw there and numb with grief over her father's death, Cassidy is desperate to feel something real--something that makes her forget. Soon the two are enmeshed in a tangle of passion and emotion, moving faster and faster into unfamiliar territory, and suddenly seeing each other in a different light. But when reality comes calling in more ways than one, Cassidy and Shaw will both have to confront the question of where their hearts and their obligations truly lie"--
"The next sizzling novel of C.L. Parker's Monkey Business Trio--perfect for fans of Bared to You and Beautiful Bastard Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom--and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotion--but only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidy--just not her pity. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignity--and maybe the woman he's hungry to claim once more. Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams--until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn't letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous heartthrob Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behind--and who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw's seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it's for the highest stakes of all. Getting Rough is intended for mature audiences. Praise for C.L. Parker's Playing Dirty "Fun, action-packed. Readers will be eager to read the sequel, hoping for more rough and dirty sexual acrobatics, friendship, backstabbing, and empathy."--Publishers Weekly "This snappy, sexy novel moves at breakneck speed, with abundant snark and sports euphemisms. Parker's penchant for dry humor and vivid, voracious sex scenes breathes life into a well-trodden premise."--Library Journal "Parker writes intense storylines that anyone can relate to. Her characters are complex, with long and sometimes turbulent pasts that they have overcome, that still continues to affect their present. I cannot wait to see where she takes this new series."--Fresh Fiction"--
