One blind date. One case of mistaken identity. One Navy SEAL faced with his high school crush. What could go wrong?
Holy cow, my blind date is rawr-hot. Everything in me aches to explore more with this man, but I can't. I've got too much on the line professionally, with me starting at my new medical practice on shaky ground. But I can't deny that I want the sex. A fling is perfect. Bonus--I will prove my idiot ex-boyfriend wrong. I'm not cold.
Or Not to Score...
Once she mistakes me for her blind date, my plan is clear. Be this Rick the Lawyer she thinks I am. And for the space of this coffee date, talk to the only woman who's ever made me feel any spark outside of combat. Best case scenario, I get to be outside my skin--free to be whatever the hell I want. Worst case--she recognizes me as we chat. She'll be pissed, call me an asshole, but it won't be anything she hasn't called me in the past, so... Win/Win?

Pretty good mistakenly identity story. Pepper & Luke were school mates and he was the guy that likes the girl but doesn't know how to tell her so he was not a favorite friend of hers then. They are both and are supposed to be wiser but he is still playing games. He can't resist the pull that he still has for her and thankfully has at least learned how to communicate a little better with age, lol. They have some webs to get through as they work to figure out what to do next. He's determined this time around though so Pepper won't slip out of life so easily this time around. Author also introduces a "new-to-me" sport which adds interest to the romance plot. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Feel Good Romance. Two teens become adults with warped misconceptions due to their parents expectations for them. Pepper is a sports physician with a lean track record with men is sure that her career will suffer if she is not focused 100%. Luke who was punished by his father for not always being a winner cannot accept love that is not earned. Quarles brings to life these troubled souls that find completion in each others arms.

4.5stars Earning it is a great love story. So Pepper thinks she is on a blind date with a super hot layer. But no she is with her former high school enemy Luke who is has changed over in the years, but he didn't forget Peper and when the opportunity falls in his lap literary he grabs it with both hands. But of course, it doesn't end well when Peper finds out who he really is. It is really a sweet funny steamy story with great characters and heartbreaking story. They are so good together and I love how was written the last chapter. Pepper is funny, witty unsecured but also strong. Luke is interesting funny hot and determined, but also caring and ready to own his mistake and ask for forgiveness. And their attraction arrrrr hoooot! Realy great story. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
3.5 stars! Earning It was a good read. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline, but the flow of the story was slow at times. Don't get me wrong, the whole story wasn't slow but it did have its moments. Pepper and Luke have history, it might not be on the greatest of terms because of something Luke admitted to doing. I thought her disliking him back then for it was a bit childish, but when your young and you work hard on something, I can understand why. It should have been water under a bridge. However, the instant attraction between the two was undeniable but when it came down to it for me, I felt as if something was missing between the two. The sexual chemistry was definitely there but I wanted more of a connection between the two. Overall, it was a good read and I would recommend readers give this book a try.
“Earning It” by Angela Quarles is the story of Pepper and Luke. Pepper is feeling hurt unlike herself after her boyof a year broke of with her and texted her that she was cold. Pepper is starting her new Practice so her life will be focused on that but she would like to prove her old boyfriend wrong. Her friend has hooked her up with a blind date Named Rick. So when she goes to meet him at the Coffee Shop she see a man fitting Rick’s description. Luke has his own issues and when Pepper walks up to him and calls him Rick, he doesn’t correct her. Luke remembers Pepper from school and she doesn’t seem to remember him, but he remembers her. So he goes along with her thinking he’s Rick just to have a moment of peace and to talk to her. This was a really sweet read that I truly enjoyed! I received this book in exchange for an honest review
This was just an okay read for me. Earning It by Angela Quarles is the first book in her Stolen Moments series. It offers the unique sport of hurling and a second chance connection. However, the thread of the story wasn’t enough to keep me invested. I’m a sucker for a mistaken identity and what’s more mistaken than thinking someone’s your blind date only to find out it’s your childhood nemesis? This is Pepper’s conundrum, and not only that, but the man in question turns out to be her patient too. The quick-witted dialogue reeled me in right from the start. I felt like I was with my best friend who was relating all this juicy gossip. You can’t help but fall in love with Pepper who’s cute and bubbly, but also has this fierce personality. I loved learning about hurling too. I had to look up some videos to get in on the action. This is Luke’s game, but Pepper comes out of nowhere and has him crossing and re-crossing lines and boundaries. The chemistry is just hot and heavy from the get-go! Boy, does this author excel at writing chili-pepper level heat. It’s a fun & flirty ride with plenty of humor. All that said? The second half of the story lost its way for me. Some strands of the plot were almost completely glossed over while others that felt unnecessary took up most of the page time. There was too much extra drama added to fluff out the story, and all it did was distract me from Luke and Pepper’s connection. Because of that it was missing the essential ingredients to keep me engaged to the end. If you don’t mind a more angsty, hefty plot, you’ll probably find this one to your tastes. It delivers an unusual sports romance with plenty of heat. 3 stars
