Beneath the Surface (Reluctance #1) by M.A. Stacie
Release Date: 29 August 2013
Kyran Reese is a man in control. Driven when it comes to work, focused when it comes to play. From his office to the chalk circle of the bare-knuckle boxing ring, his only thought is to win. That thirst heightens when Dale Porter enters his life. His brother’s assistant should be off limits, but her witty comments and sarcastic comebacks have him desperate to get her between the sheets.
When Dale agrees to Kyran’s relationship stipulation of no labels she’s sucked into a whirlwind of lust, money, and underground boxing. Dale fights her growing affection, trying to hide it when the world around them spirals out of control. All too soon she realizes she can’t hide her true feelings any longer.
Has Kyran finally met his match? Could playing to win mean playing for keeps?
My Opinion 3 STARS

This book follows the tried and tested formula of slightly tortured sexy alpha male (Kyran) who sees 'the one' (Dale), but doesn't realise it until his comfort and her presence in his life is threatened. I also liked the fact Judah had a 'secret' MAN type of bare fisted fighting thing going on.
Dale who only VERY recently split up with her boyfriend after he broke her heart starts a new job and both fall instantly in lust with each other.
There are plenty of sex scenes, however the emotion doesn't grip you with them. However the dialogue did have me laughing out loud at times, they could really spit and spark.
I liked the interaction with Taylor, but we didn't really get into enough depth as to the reactions and feelings Taylor's action had.
