[Review] Getting Rough by C. L. Parker

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.

**Book gifted in exchange for an honest review**

This is the second book in the Monkey Business Trio. I had completely forgotten how I loved Shaw & Cassidy.
For this book we're taken out of the big city and dropped in a cute little mining town-Stonington, Maine- getting a look in to the past of Cassidy. Shaw thinks she pittied him enough that she'd run away from the job they were fighting for but in reality it's just family matters which always mean a damn lot more than anything else in my opinion.
Drum roll for the entrance of Casey.
Casey that Cassidy has tattooed on her backside... I think.
I thought I loved S&C but Casey just melts me. He's so cute. Handsome, strong and extremely fricking loyal! I swooooned a lot.
I think the book had the right balance of everything. Not too much sex, no over dramatics but there were events to shake the story which were amaze because I was wondering how a whole book could play out in a town with minimal options. Turns out Mother Nature had that covered.
Abbey is adorable and I love that Shaw has her as an adoptive mother. I love that it brings out the softer, boyish side in him.
A lot of growth happens in this book, along with ending old chapters in their lives to start new ones and it isn't messy in doing so.
Feelings are hurt but they're not damaged and it makes it a huge breath of fresh air to read.
