Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?
Tori slapped the counter and gained everyone’s attention when she started yelling, “I did not run you over, Jamie! Jesus Christ! Quit spreading lies about me!”
“It ain’t lies if it's true!” I yelled back, glaring at her.
A laugh bubbled in her throat. She tilted her head and stuck her hand on her hip. “Please. I'm sure you're still able to bang everything with a pulse, as usual, which means you’re fine. Get over it, and grow some balls. I cried less when I watched Bambi the first time.”
“Who's hungry?” Syd asked nonchalantly, moving behind her friend to round the island and stand near the stove.
I ignored her question because, what the fuck? Grow some balls?
“I gotta pair, babe,” I told Legs, reaching down and palming my shit. “You should know since you've been all up on ’em the past nine months.”
She rolled her eyes. “You're disgusting.”
I felt my mouth twitch.
And that was when, for some fucked up reason, I reverted back to my old ways with Tori Rivera, forgetting all about how much I fucking hated her and instead going full-on, hell-bent determined to get an admission out of that smart-ass mouth.
“You want it,” I countered, tipping my chin up.
She wasn’t expecting that. No more than I was. It threw her off.
Her shoulders pulled back and her lips parted.
Then, maybe to cover her tell, or maybe she didn't have control over what was flying out of her mouth either, I didn't know, but she brought her other hand to her hip, glared at me with heat flashing in her eyes, tipped forward, and shot back with attitude, “You want it.”
Well shit. This was new. Legs was challenging me and she was doing it flirting. There was no doubt in my mind.
 “Sorry, babe,” I said, keeping the smirk and letting go of my junk. “Not interested. I told you yesterday, I’m done waitin’ around. But you?” I pointed my beer at her. “You’ll be beggin' for it before the month is up. Just watch.”
“Fat chance,” she snapped. “I wouldn't sleep with you if my life depended on it.”
“Wanna bet?”
“Bet what?”
“What's going on right now?” Syd called out, but I wasn't pausing to answer her.
I smiled at Tori, then gestured between us, explaining, “First one to break and come crawling to the other person for sex, loses.”
“Are you serious?” She laughed, not in amusement but in disbelief.
“Yeah, I’m serious,” I answered. 
“You want to bet me that I'll want to have sex with you before you try and have sex with me?” she questioned, moving her finger between us. “You, the guy who has been hitting on me for nine straight months and has been rejected for nine straight months? You seriously think I'll not only want to have sex with you, but I'll beg you for it? Is that what I just heard?”
I nodded slowly. I had this in the bag. “A rule. No fuckin’ anyone unless it's each other.”
Her eyes bugged.
“And no masturbating either,” I added, raising my beer and using it to gesture. “Since we both know when you do it you’re thinkin’ about me, and if you're that fuckin’ horny you need to rub one out or you'll fuckin' explode, you can come to me, Legs, beg, and I'll put that fire out for you.”

Move over Trouble aka Brian cause Jamie has taken your place and captured my heart. 
I have to be honest and say, that I was a little skeptical about Jamie because he was all about the ladies and screwing around, 
but after finishing Hit The Spot I can safely say I was wrong. 
Very wrong about him and who he was as a person and as a man. 
I liked the introduction of Tori in Four Letter Word and in Hit The Spot she went all out and showed me all her sides I came to enjoy and many many more.

Tori definitely didn't give Jamie an easy time even though he tried to win her over by showing her all of his moves. 
It was a certain bet that slowly made them get to know one another more deeply. 
Still Tori was very apprehensive of Jamie and letting him in her heart because of his behavior as a ladies man. 
They played with each other, a push and pull game and I enjoyed how they both were affected by one another 
yet still tried to play it cool.

Jamie showed his attentiveness and proved that once he made a promise he kept it. 
He kept surprising me throughout the story and his care and want for Tori 
was definitely swoon worthy. 
Tori showed her growth 
by taking risks and claimed Jamie 
in a very hilarious scene at a restaurant. 
So much fun. Yes, she was insecure about him at times but who could blame her with Jamie's track record of ladies.
If you've read a J. Daniels book before then you know that sex occurs and in Hit The Spot it's no different. 
There's sex and plenty of it but that's also what makes it a J. Daniels book besides her lovable characters. 
The connection and chemistry between Jamie and Tori was blazing hot. 
No doubt about their want and need for each other but their friendship was just as important to me. 
Brian and Sydney showed up too and it gave me the feeling of being a part of a family. Their dynamics were strong and enjoyed that Tori also had some scenes with Brian. 
These four people have definitely 
hit my soft spot.
