Two cousins who were condemned in their small town by the name they carry come back to seek revenge on the town that made their childhood a living hell. 

Cassie Tremaine is a famous underwear model that has a fan that is a little too much for her.  In order for her to get away, she returns to her home town and becomes bored within a few hours of arriving.

Feeling like the town needs to be shaken up a little bit, Cassie convinces her cousin to open a branch of her store, Bare Essentials, in the town. Bare Essentials is a lady's store like no other, they specialize in naughty aspects for ladies and their men.

Not feeling that this is enough of a shake up, Cassie plans to take her revenge on the sheriff, Sean Taggot but we all call him Tag.  Unfortunately things does not go Cassie's way when Tag wants more than what's she willing to give.  

Running scared, would Cassie turn away from what could be the best thing of her life or would Tag think the same thing the citizens having been thinking for years "All Tremaine's are no good."

Kate Jones does not carry the Tremaine's actual name, but she is one through and through. Agreeing to her cousins idea about opening a branch of her store, Bare Essentials, in their old home town was the first step in her revenge plan, Kate decided to up the ante by decided to have her revenge on the man who broke her mother's heart.

Her plan is to seduce John Winfield Jr, (his son), make him fall madly in love with her and then dump his a** without even a backwards glance.  However Kate soon finds herself seduced by a sexy stranger named Jack who is to hot to handle and who would soon have Kate hoping for things she has no business wanting.

+Jill Shalvis and Leslie Kelly both wrote an amazing book.  +Jill Shalvis started the heat with her half of her story and Leslie finished it off with a fiery and smoking hot ending.   These two author came together and wrote a book that almost satisfied all my needs of a book.

There were some loose ends that were not resolved to my taste.  Why did they, (both of the couples) not discuss what was wrong with their parents?  Seriously, I was left incomplete on how they figured out how or why their parents ending up the way they did.

For those of you who did not grasp it, Jill Shalvis wrote the story about Cassie and Tag and Leslie Kelly wrote about Kate and Jack.  The greatest thing this book did for me was introduce me to a new author that I just HAVE to check out, Miss Leslie Kelly.  I have alreay read and LOVED Jill Shalvis's books and you should too.   Read the book, I guarantee you will love it!
