A sexy, laugh out loud, standalone romantic comedy by USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente!

When you've been screwed over by Mr. Wrong, let a Spectacular Rascal show you how good it feels to be bad.

You know the smooth, successful New York businessman type? Well, I'm the other guy--the one you don't bring home to mama. The tattooed, rough-around-the-edges, 100% primal badass.

As the resident bad boy of Magnificent Bastard Consulting, I've got what it takes to make sure your dangerous dick of an ex thinks twice before he knocks on your door again.

Or I thought I did, until I meet my latest client...

Now my wild, sexy, one-that-got-away is looking up at me with her big green eyes, daring me to take on an ex as dick-ish and dangerous as hers. But all I want to do is take her--again and again.

Soon Cat and I are setting sex marathon records and medaling in the orgasm Olympics, all while staying one step ahead of her former Mr. Wrong. Everything is golden, except for the fact that I'm falling hard for this woman and all she wants is more of Curved for her Pleasure (trust me, the nickname fits).

Now I have to prove to Cat that I'm nothing like the dangerous man she's left behind, and do it all before our time runs out. Considering her ex is with the mob, if we're not careful, that could be sooner than either one of us thinks...

Warning: SPECTACULAR RASCAL is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy told from the hero's point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of dirty talk.

Witty, flirty, and oh so dirty! The chemistry between Aidan and Cat is red-hot and combustible! I was hooked from the very beginning.

Lili Valente is a brilliant story teller and once again she has shined and outdone herself in Spectacular Rascal. She pulls you in from the very first word to the very last. As a reader you feel the highs and lows of each character because you feel as if you are that character. I LOVED the humor, sexiness, and sweetness of Aiden and Cat's relationship. Aiden the sexy, tattooed, hottie may have the look of a tough bad boy, but really he is anything but. Eleven years ago he chose his career over a chance with Cat. Aiden and Cat were teammates of the Dashers. They became the best of friends, a friendship that bloomed through secret notes and texts. Cat always held a torch for Aiden, two years her senior, but never acted upon it until the night before he left to study the art of tattooing. Cat wanted Aiden to be her first, someone she trusted and leaned on during the good and bad. However Aiden chose to leave, but always wondered what could have been. Fast forward 11 years. What a surprise it was for Aiden to find that the girl he thought about often, his once best friend, turns out to be his next client. Ready to end their contract before it even began because of their past, Aiden finds himself stuck in limbo when he learns that Cat's ex is part of the mob and he is willing to do whatever needs to be done to get Cat back. Done deal! He can't let her down. So Aiden does everything in his power to protect and keep her safe, while making sure her ex knows that Cat has moved on. The more time Cat and Aiden spend together, the deeper they start to fall for each other. Although danger lurks all around, Aiden and Cat tune out the world and enjoy each others bodies, experiencing some mind blowing sex. Soon Aiden questions if maybe just maybe the girl he let get away 11 years ago just might be his match in heaven. Will Aiden and Cat have their second chance in love? Can AIden keep Cat safe and out of the arms of her stalking, crazy mobster ex? What I really enjoyed were the flashback notes and texts between Cat and Aiden. They were flirty, cute, sincere, therapeutic and filled with lots of banter and humor. I also loved that the story was written in Aiden's POV, and the hysterical rituals of the Dashers. Thank you Lili Valente for writing one of my top reads for the summer.

I love all of Lili's books that I have read to date and this one is no different. Not only is it sexy but its also hilarious, and gives you drama in parts and some suspense. The characters banter back and forth had me almost falling off my couch laughing so hard. Aiden (Curve) is a grizzly of a man (not even joking) who fell in love with a girl during college. But being 20 some years old hes was just a dumb boy and let the best thing to ever happen to him get away. Cat (Panties) has loved Curve just as long but in college they only knew the nicknames for one another of Curve & Panties. I loved how Lili had it pretty much all in Aidens POV and going back in time to the college days and the notes and texts they sent back and forth to give you a better understanding of them now and how they were back then. I'm so ready to see what Lili does for Shane's story. That girl is a firecracker and says whatever comes to her mind.

This book was just the right combination of funny, sweet, and naughty. A great read for anyone who likes an alpha with a heart of gold and a heroine who as sweet as she is tough.

Aiden and Cat continue on this series in the same fun manner as Bash and Penny. This is a pretty light-hearted funny read with a little drama/violence and mild sex scenes thrown in. Aiden is a lumberjack sized man with a teddy bear gentle heart. he plays the role of the spectacular rascal but is portrayed much weaker. I'd love to see a bit more man behind the muscle. Overall the book is a fun read with some entertaining letters/text back and forth to keep the pace pretty fast. The text are fun enough I think it would be cool to read an entire book of them ;) Some of the things Panties and Curve do make me wanna bang my head against the wall. Anyone who has ever watched a crime show would go DUH you can't do that. that's the reason behind 4 stars.

The opening scene in this one with Aidan sets the tone for the crazy wild ride to come. The humor was by far my favorite aspect of the book. The banter and interaction especially the flashbacks sucked me in. Aidan is one yummy guy and he now has the second chance with the one that got away. The attraction between them is hot as ever. They have a ton of chemistry. He has his work cut out for him when he's hired to get her ex off her back. One problem the threat is really life or death. Can Aidan keep her safe?

Ekkkkkk Aiden is definitely not man you want to mess with. He is finding that trying to help his friend might lead to more complications in his life then he had planned for. Aiden is 100% s stand up guy, and he will always do the right thing no matter what. When he inadvertently takes a job working for an "old friend" he is not sure what to make of her situation. Cat knew exactly what she was getting into the minute Aiden came walking thru that door, but will she be able to separate her feelings from the past from her feelings in the present. Two people that have a very strong connection never lose that even if its been eleven years since they last laid eyes on each other. Those feelings never really go away. I loved the easy conversation between Aiden and Cat and how they kind of just picked up where they left off all those years ago. And I mean Hello Aiden is a dirty talker and he knows just how to get Cat all riled up and ready. I loved getting to look back at there relationship in the past compared to the feelings that they were having in the present. This was actually a very relatable story and of course it was equal parts sexy dirty and funny. Lili has a way with words and this book was no exception......it was just as fabulous as the last one. I can not wait to see what happens next with Shane. This series has been a delight to read.
