2 Amy’s Love Reading - “J.D. Hollyfield really knows how to steam up the pages.”

Lies, lust, and wickedly intriguing expectations.
A fresh new start for Kasey Bishop leads her to a night she most definitely won’t forget. An inviting, yet indecent proposal that shows her she might not be as innocent as she once seemed. 
Deceit, desire, and the hunger for forbidden expectations.
She was off limits. That’s what made her the perfect pawn in Creed Monroe’s plan for revenge. Until he got his first taste. 
Explosive chemistry, heat, and an instant connection…these two might exceed each other’s expectations.
When the roguish bad boy is forced to come clean as his vengeful secrets begin to unravel, will Kasey continue to accept Creed’s forbidden expectations? Or will she have a few expectations of her own?

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

I gasp loud enough for aliens on Mars to hear.

I would barely fit in a bathroom break, let alone lunch. Thankfully, I was eager to succeed, so food and peeing would have to be knocked down on my priority list of daily needs.

His smile is something I want to bottle up and keep under my pillow. It screams danger, sinful, and sexy, and I want to put my lips on his just so I can feel that smile.

Kasey, you need to eat. Starving yourself isn’t fixing anything. You’re starting to hurt the cereal’s feelings.

Thank you for booking such a lavish hotel. Did you see they had a bidet in the bathroom? Not only do I have the cleanest vagina in this town, I’m also not in need of a man for another three to five weeks.

My Review:

I am a big fan of J.D. Hollyfield’s particular brand of clever and amusing snark.  In my opinion, she is the ruling Sassy Scribe of Snark.  I am also a big fan of her tendency to employ fractured and at least moderately damaged main characters that are not always lovable, yet they are so endearingly flawed I can’t help but care for them.  Creed and Kasey fit this mold, and then some.  Creed was Kasey’s ex-brother-in-law, and an aloof and detached asshole/sex god, although by the conclusion he claimed to be a “reformed asshole,” however, I would have considered him to have still been a work in progress.  The title of Creed’s Expectations refers to his specific and “peculiar” ideas of the type of friendship he expected to have with Kasey.  Kasey was a hot mess, immature, clumsy, naïve, eager to please, and obsessed with Lucky Charms – not jewelry, the marshmallow cereal.  Their story was highly erotic, salacious, and molten lava hot.
