Avoiding Amy Jackson (The Infamous Series #2)
Meet Amy Jackson. An outspoken, raunchy, in-your-face, loudly inappropriate ER Nurse who makes a career out of indulging.
One-night stands have always been her thing.
Commitment and relationships are two words that are not in her vocabulary.
Amy doesn’t have dreams of soul mates and white picket fences. She adamantly refuses to even consider the idea of getting married and starting a family. She’s also obstinate in allowing a certain physician to get on her good side…
James Williams. A cocky, smug, too-damn-good-looking orthopedic surgeon who has his sights set on the very feisty Amy Jackson. He is more than intrigued and ready to do whatever it takes…
“I want this woman. I’m the type of guy who will fight for what he wants until he gets it. I will take my time with Amy. I won’t rush her. I will continue to slowly slide myself into her life until she realizes that I belong there. And then…I won’t let her go.”
This is Book Two in The Infamous Series
“So is it true what I’ve heard about marines?” I ask nonchalantly.
He cocks his eyebrow inquisitively. “What exactly have you heard about marines?”
“Once a marine, always a marine. I hear you guys even yell out, ‘Oorah!’ during sex.” I try like hell to keep my face devoid of any emotion, especially amusement.
James’s fist slams down onto the table as he lets out a deep laugh. Our coffee cups vibrate from the motion and tiny droplets slide down the side of my cup onto the small, red table. “Uh. No,” he answers through his laughter.
“Never? C’mon. You mean to tell me you’ve never yelled that out during sex? Even when you come?” I wipe the spilled coffee off the table with a beige napkin that proudly displays the shop’s logo.
James’s tickled expression makes me grin.
“God, you’re outrageous, but to answer your question, no. Never. I’m saving it for when I meet the woman of my dreams.” His face beams with hilarity. James unleashes his most impressive megawatt smile and I instantly feel needy for his attention.
A self-deprecating laugh escapes my throat as I try to brush off the unnerving feeling that is occurring inside of me. “You’re good. Really good. I bet you have women throwing themselves at you all the time.” My face immediately flushes red when a particular embarrassing memory comes to mind.
“I don’t turn on the charm for just anyone, Amy,” he states with a determined stare, his eyes piercing into mine.
“That doesn’t seem like a response someone would give to their friend.” He may need sunglasses for the glare I’m giving him.
“Sometimes, with you, I just can’t help myself, but I promise I’ll try to be better.” He holds his hand to his chest, asking for forgiveness.
“I guess I’ll let that one slide, but if it happens again, I can’t make any promises what my reaction will be,” I warn before I finish the rest of my coffee.

First off I have to say that the author is a dear friend of mine. However that had nothing to do with my love for this book.
Amy Jackson is raunchy, inappropriate, funny, lovable. Her lack of filter and verbal diarrhea of all things inappropriate had me cracking up from beginning to end.
And James…*sigh* I loved his patience with Amy. She could be a lot to handle but if anyone was made to handle her, it was him. He’s strong, sexy and just yummy.
The witty banter between to two provide a sexy foreplay for things to come and had me rooting for them the whole book.
And I love the authors writing. The story flowed wonderfully. Amy’s comments and remarks and just daily dialogue had me inwardly cringing and laughing at the same time.
I will say I think I enjoyed this book more than the first and I really can’t wait for more in this series.
