This was a good first book. I found myself following along with the characters. The only main issue I have is that the main man seemed a little immature for his age and status.
Blake Burns is a manwhore with a one track mind. He is also wealthy, built and hot as sin. He is a wham, bam, thank you mam sort of man who takes what he wants and goes on his merry little way. He is generally attracted to stickly, barbie doll type models. One night in a club, his world is turned upside down.
Jennifer McCoy is a smart, sweet, simple woman. She is newly engaged to Bradley Wick D.D.S. On a night out celebrating her engagement a game of truth or dare sends her into the arms of Blake. She is blindfolded, she has no idea who she kisses.
Jennifer is starting a new job for SIN-TV, a porn channel and an affiliate of the children's programming channel that recently let her go. Her boss is none other than Blake Burns. She doesn't know he was the guy in the club, but he knows it's her. There is enough sexual tension between these two to cut with a knife.
This is a good read and I am highly anticipating reading number 2. I am curious to see where these two will end up. Jennifer is in a dull relationship with Bradley and Blake may only be in it for the chase. It ends suspensfully and cliffy. I hope in the next one that Blake has a better handle on his raging hormone problems. A man like him who works in the industry he does should have a little more self restraint and control.

After reading this one I am growing accustomed to the writing style, and while I still feel that Blake is a little less alpha male and a little more horny teenager, I really enjoyed this second book.
Operation Dickwick is in full swing and Blake Burns will have Jennifer. He is determined to get her away from her uptight, geeky fiance. He is "That Man", kinda like Batman, rescuing damsels from drab, boring dentist with a single kiss! lol!
Jennifer sees what I expected through the first book. I won't say much because I do not want to give away too much. It is hard to review short books without disclosing spoilers. I will say this is a great follow-up to That Man 1, and I am anxious to read That Man 3. The author has sufficiently sucked me into these characters lives. Blake is hot, hot, hot in this one. Plus there is a office Christmas party that I would love to attend!

The steamy and suspenseful conclusion to the bestselling THAT MAN trilogy!
Let’s cut to the chase. A sweet little Midwestern girl with a dimpled smile had shown me there was a connection between my cock and my heart. She was in my bloodstream bringing them together. Making me feel emotions and sensations I’d never felt with anyone.
The Kiss had changed everything. This painting had turned my heart upside down and torn me apart. I could no longer deny my feelings. I missed him for only one reason. I was in love.
Blake and Jennifer finally succumb to their passion and are unable to get enough of one another. A shocking discovery, however, threatens to pull them apart. And danger looms.
Will the two of them survive an outside force that promises to bring their love to a cruel and tragic end ?
Blake is up to his shenanigans, but there's so much more!
"Blake! What are you doing here?” she gasped as I made my way to her bed after kicking shut the door and locking it.
“What does it look like? I’m getting into bed with you,” I responded, squeezing into her tiny twin bed before she had a chance to notice my hard on. I snuggled next to her. Man, this bed was barely big enough for one person, let alone two.
“You can’t sleep here! What if my parents come in?”
“They won’t, and besides, I’ve locked the door.”
“What if I still say no? Are you going to fuck me into submission?”
My cock flexed and a cocky smile curled on my lips. “That’s Plan B.”
Her eyes widened. “What’s Plan A?”
One of my hands came up from under the cover. In it was a small gift box wrapped in hot pink paper and topped off with a small silver bow. I had kept it hidden behind my back when I’d crept into her room.
“It’s just a small Christmas present.”
A combination of guilt and curiosity flickered in her green-as-a-Christmas-tree eyes. “You’re making me feel bad. I don’t have anything else to give you. I mean , I didn’t know—”
I cut her off. “Don’t worry, you’ll be giving me what I wished for on Christmas shortly. Now, open it up.”
“It’s from Gloria’s Secret,” she commented, noticing the famous GS logo on the paper. “Is it some sexy piece of lingerie?”
While that would have been a fine gift too, one I would have bit off her sweet ass, this one was way more creative. And it was going to be way more fun.
“No. Just open it.” She was making my cock twitch with anticipation. I watched as she carefully tore off the wrapping. She stared blankly at the package. “What is this, Blake?”
“It’s a toy. You can’t have Christmas without getting a toy.”
“My Secret Vibrating Egg?”
“It’s a sex toy. You’re going to love playing with it. Open the package.”
She fumbled getting the box opened. I think I already had her aroused.
She lifted the sparkly little pink egg out of the carton and examined it.
“I was almost going to get you a regular vibrator, but then I remembered how much you seemed to enjoy eggs when we had breakfast together at the beach.”
“I do love eggs.” She smiled sheepishly, still studying the toy. “How do you use this?”
My face lit up and my cock stirred. The fun was about to begin.

The series got better with each installment. This was wonderful.
Blake has transformed from a player to a dream. Sometime all it takes is a good woman to make a man change his ways. Blake and Jennifer's relationship evolves and detonates. Secrets are revealed and hearts are broken.
There is a very heart wrenching suspenseful part that will have you screaming "oh no not again"! Blake truly is "That Man". He is always around when he is needed the most.
I loved Jennifer's idea of making books into tv shows, I would totally watch that, even if it was on a porn channel!
Blake and Jen work through the struggles of a relationship, they hit a speed bump with the issue of trust and must figure out if loving each other is worth all the heartache.
This is really a great series! There is a lot of hot loving, some drama, all leading to HEA!
