Now and Again by Brenda Rothert | Book Review

Book Blurb:
Once again, 26-year-old Layla Carson has the attention of a man eager to satisfy her. Ben Montrose, the hot, confident cop who gets off on frustrating her, is eager to show her just how arresting he can be. But as a reforming sexaholic, Layla’s sworn off casual hookups, and doesn’t miss the days of her early 20s –much.

Ben’s caught off-guard when the sexy, outspoken attorney turns him on and then turns him down. But the confident former Marine knows he can handle the simple seduction of a beautiful woman. He finds Layla’s weak spot – competition, which he happens to share – and challenges her to a game that could make them, or destroy them.

As they compete to crown the master of seduction, Ben and Layla discover there’s more to their game than power and foreplay. But as the stakes go up, they realize the game has changed, and they both stand to lose more than they bargained for.

Book Review:
I read and reviewed the first book, Now and Then and really liked it. The dorky kid in school who pines for the hunky neighbor next door. I was excited when I found out about Now and Again and it was Layla's story, the horribly popular, always gets what she wants old sister, who, by-the-way, dates the incredibly hunky neighbor next door.
In Now and Again, Layla has sworn off men and refuses to be slutty anymore. She has given up on her list that she created back in high school and is focused on her career. 
Well, when she can't reached an investigator at the police station, she goes over there unannounced all Layla style, and meets incredibly hunky Ben. 
So, I'm not sure how I completely understand how this competition all came to be, but it was full-blown on. She wouldn't let him sleep with her, made him woo her, and then they both knew that when he gets to be in charge, they were gonna do it. That part was made very clear. 
Without giving too much of the plot away, there is still a lot of jealousy happening with her sister, and Ben is helping her realize it doesn't need to be, and defends her. Hello alpha male. 
There are some hot scenes in this one, and the story keeps a great pace, just like Now and Then. Said is my best Joan Rivers voice, 4 Stars!
