One dark and handsome control-freak sports star meets one smarty pants bioengineer with hair to match her fiery temper. It's an experiment straight out of sexual thermodynamics.

Every good scientist knows the second law of thermodynamics: the universe's disorder, entropy, is always increasing. Professionally and personally speaking, Nairne’s familiar with the principle. After a streak of costly fame, now she’s set on saving the world, microscope in hand, and there’s no time for romance. Problem is, when a rude, despicably sexy Adonis shows up to run their board meeting, chemistry and its ensuing chaos become more than a formula—now they’re a burning hot reality.

Mafia prince. Professional footballer. Bad boy demeanor and a reputation for being as talented between the sheets as he is on the pitch. Rumors are the man's an absolute brute. And he turns out to be just as demanding, controlling and vicious in person as he is on paper. The Law of Attraction’s proven true, as Nairne finds herself accepting Zed’s proposal: rough, wild stress release, more orgasms than she can count, and most importantly—no falling in love.

Agreement in place. End date secured.
No attachments. No forever.
What could possibly go wrong?

Book One in the Tough Love Series—an enemies to lovers, suspenseful romance, full of sexy Italians, bedroom negotiations, feisty heroines, and an ending that’ll both satisfy you and leave you ready for more!

One fiery-haired, sexy scientist finds her perfect complement in a dark and handsome soccer star. Opposites attract, and they’ve got chemistry that’s explosive—literally.

Physics calls it entropy. Philosophy calls it Murphy’s Law: If something can go wrong, eventually it will. Professionally and personally speaking, Zed’s familiar with the principle. After a decade of trying to alter the atomic makeup of the mafia from its nucleus, now he’s set on leaving The Life and pursuing his heart. Problem is, the sassy, hot-headed spitfire he can’t quit is meddling in his slow burn escape plan, and turning it into full-on combustion.

Not to mention, Nairne’s got a painful history she won’t talk about and more secrets than she has lab instruments—which is really saying something. In an ideal world, the bad boy footballer would follow the brainy beauty overseas and they’d live happily ever after. But Murphy’s Law is proven true, as Zed finds his world imploding and his escape plan foiled. These enemies turned lovers end up discovering how costly it can be to meet the right person at the wrong time.

A present he can’t escape.
A past she can’t forget.
A future they won’t stop fighting for.
They say all’s fair in love…and war.

Book Two in the Tough Love Series—an enemies to lovers, suspenseful romance, full of sexy Italians, feisty heroines, globe-trotting action, and an ending that’ll both satisfy you and leave you ready for more!

The Faerie Queen’s review

Here are a list of things I like that happened to be in this book. If you don’t like these things, move on; however, if you share my interests, this book is available on Kindle Unlimited, the holy grail for romance readers.

  • The heroine is a scientist! She’s smart and precise, and she knows what she’s doing. Yay for competence!
  • The hero is an alpha, but he’s also very attentive, and he appreciates the heroine for her sass.
  • He’s also a Mafia prince, but for once, he’s trying to get out of it.
  • The heroine is self-assured and takes no shit from Mr. Alpha Prince.
  • There’s a Dom/sub sexual relationship. Some people do not like this sort of thing in their books. I am not one of these people (as long as it’s shown properly, with consent and clear boundaries).
  • Oh, and let’s throw in that this is a sports romance, too? You know I love those.
  • HATE-TO-LOVE.
  • So much stubborness on both parts.
  • Moreso on her part, proving that subs aren’t necessarily submissive. I love it when subs are feisty.
  • She has a disability that I won’t reveal too much information about but OMG.
  • He’s actually a sweetheart doing his best.
  • “We can totally make a sex-only relationship work.” SURE.
  • Boardroom fireworks.
  • Danger! Escalating! No escape!
  • Sooooo much heat dear sweet Cheesus. Dirty, dirty, yes please.

I will warn you that this is a series of books about the same couple, so be prepared for things to be draaawwwwwnnnnn out. Luckily, the first two books are already available (again, Kindle Unlimited), and it’s only a couple months until the final book is launched into the world. Other things to warn you about are the fact that yet another heroine has auburn hair and green eyes, and there’s that pesky young-man-initiated-into-sex-and-kink-by-older-woman thing.

This series is just so much fun to read, and I’m more than ready for They’re a Match!

About Chloe Liese

Chloe’s always been a sucker for a suspenseful steamy romance, ever since she managed to find the one saucy mystery series hiding in her high school’s prim little library. Nothing drives her crazier than a story that cranks up the heat, then closes the door on the reader’s face, so don’t read her books if you don’t want to know what actually happens when the lights fade to black…

When she’s not writing, Chloe’s busy reading books of all genres, rereading Harry Potter (which she can’t help but make her characters similarly obsessed over), and playing catch-up with her bad@$$ little girls. She’s also been known to scramble around the pitch for a pick-up soccer match and run along the river while dreaming up her next book.
