Falling for a guy you love to hate has never been so fun in this "laugh-out-loud funny and crazy sexy" beach read (Meghan March, New York Times bestselling author).
Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him-hell, most women do-but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

Sassy Tori and Determined Jamie are a lot of fun to read about. Tori's ideas about Jamie are so off track and when she finally realizes it, it is both poignant and funny. He's been telling her all along that she belongs to him and she fights it right until the end. This book is the 2nd in the Dirty Deeds series and does not disappoint.

Even when a book is exactly what I expect it to be and there are no surprises, and it is just a complete feel good make me smile romance that’s ok.  Like its title, it hits the spot.  But sometimes that’s all I want in a romance.   After reading book one and a few other titles from Daniels, it's clear she has her formula.  There is angst, in the beginning, a lot of back and forth before the couple gets together.  Tons and tons of sexual tension build and when they finally do get together its explosive.  Things are great for a time, and of course, something happens to wreak paradise.  OH NO! GASP!  But this is a romance book, so of course, there is an HEA.   Don’t expect anything new or surprising, but be prepared for a great time, with fabulous writing, characters that you will fall in love with and some scorching hot scenes that will burn up the pages.  All in all 5 Boundless stars, I loved it.

With every book of J. Daniels that I open up and experience, I am more in awe of her work and even more in love with her characters. I thought I fell hard for her Dirty Deeds series after reading Four Letter Word but nothing could have prepared my heart and libido for Jamie and Tori in Hit The Spot. They kept my heart twisted with all their back and forth, rocked my world with all of their heat, and left me a complete emotional mess. Jamie McCade had me fascinated from the first time he walked into Whitecaps and called his hot, blonde waitress “Legs”. I knew with all the built up sexual tension between him and Tori that everything was going to explode sooner or later and I wanted a front row seat to the sexy action. What I didn't expect was all the feels for this smooth talking hero that knows how to aim for both the reader's and the heroines heart. I adored everything from his sun kissed unruly beach hair, delicious muscles, and his tight grip on his surf board to his equally tight grip on Tori. He had me wined and dined and quietly screaming “Yes! Yes!” from the beginning, even when Tori was fighting against her feelings. He made me melt every time he hit Tori's “soft”. Tori Rivera comes off as a fun loving girl but she is anything but. She has been hurt severely in the past by a deceiving boyfriend and has been living with a broken heart. That is until a cocky surfer walks into her restaurant and stirs up emotions and lust that she wished she didn't feel. Tori impressed me with the lengths that she was willing to go through to resist Jamie's advances and charm. She is a fighter through and through and will do anything to protect her heart from being broke again. She had me crying tears of laughter over bets, collisions, and so much more. J. Daniels delivers another steamy, heartfelt read that has by far made it to my #1 read of 2016, hands down. It will be a book that I will read again and again with characters that have taken up residence in my heart forever. I highly recommend Hit The Spot for a romance that is sure to knock your socks off with the absolute perfect combination of dirty and sweet. J. Daniels is an author that woos and seduces the reader with every page and keeps us hanging onto every naughty word, funny bone tickling quip, and “sweet as sugar” moment.

This was awesome! It was a crazy, stressful, emotional ride and I couldn't put it down. Tori and Jamie, oh my! There were so many ups and downs with these two, I loved their animosity, sexual tension, and moments of sweetness. Jamie was a bit over the top in the beginning and did not make a good first impression with his arrogant ways and it took me a while to warm up to him. I did really like watching him fall for Tori and soften. Tori had such a guard up, and it was great watching her work through her battles with Jamie's help. The two of them coming together was drama filled, had a lot of angst, it could be explosive and extremely hot. They could both be really stubborn and frustrating but all their moments and confrontations had me hooked. I loved learning about Tori and her past and got why she held herself back, though it got a bit tedious sometimes. I was anxious to learn about Jamie and inhaled any personal information I could get but honestly I don't feel like I learned a ton about him. I got his alpha personality, his blunt attitude, and how sweet he could be with Tori, I just wish he would have had a bit more depth to him. Great writing writing, story and pace. It was entertaining and sexy. I loved seeing Brian and Sydney and getting more of the side story of Shay and Stitch. I liked the secondary stories that were going on as well. Really good ending. Loved the epilogue. I loved the overall story. Jamie he was a bit much but he grew in me. Both he and Tori were both so headstrong and set in their ways which could make their back and forth bickering a bit exasperating but it made for some great emotional moments and a lot of sexual tension. Even though they both stressed me out, I thought it was a pretty excellent read that I totally enjoyed. Complimentary copy received for honest review.

This book! I really enjoyed, the first book of this series, but was absolutely blown away with just how much I loved this one. I found myself laughing uncontrollably, swooning over the characters, and overall I had an amazing reading experience. This can definitely be read as a standalone. Jamie McCade is a known playboy. He believes he’s a gift to women. And he never apologizes for it. He can pretty much get any woman he wants. Until he meets Tori Rivera. Tori is sassy and fun and has no problem playing hard to get. Well this spurs Jamie into chasing mode. And he chases her. Hard. He pushes and pulls. Until Tori has no choice but to give in. She doesn’t do so easily. But Jamie is sort of hard to resist. Scratch that. He’s irresistible. But can Tori truly allow herself to go through heart ache once again? Their chemistry is fire across the pages. The author places you there. The sexual tension is intense. You are completely engrossed in Tori and Jamie’s story as they pursue something deeper than either one could have ever imagined. Through the chasing and the banter, these two fall in love. There is an underlying vulnerability between them. In their lives, they’ve both done some chasing. But giving in? Giving in this time is different. It feels different. While Tori’s never been loved like this, Jamie has never loved. Until her. His love protects and consumes. While cocky and arrogant on the outside, as Jamie loves deeper, his heart reveals itself. And it is EVERYTHING. “It’s you, babe. Never had nothin’ like this. Never had nothin’ even close. And never will again. I know that.” Hit The Spot was a sexy, flirty, and playful read. The author brilliantly balanced an engaging plot with the perfect amount of romance, drama and sexy time. She certainly put her own spin on the “chase” with her execution of such a gripping yet fun story. I never wanted to put the book down. It was addicting and so well written. The pacing was perfect as I never felt a dull moment. The characters were complex, yet real and genuine. J. Daniels, you definitely Hit The Spot!

Whew! What a roller coaster! I'm trying to be really vague since I think this has to be experienced. I will however point out what I liked and what didn't work for me. When I finished Four Letter Word I was really looking forward to seeing how that love-hate relationship between pro-surfer Jamie and the beautiful, confident waitress Tori would play out. Jamie has been pursuing Tori for months. He puts up with her being confrontational, often times downright hostile. She is a challenge he just can't resist and being the guy who always gets what he wants he plans on wearing her down. Jamie knows, behind all that bluster Tori is just as attracted to him. Tori is still reeling from the breakup from her ex-boyfriend who "forgot" to mention that he is married. The idea of hooking up with Jamie she doesn't even remotely consider. That way lies hurt and she knows it. Or does she? It takes a while for Tori to come around but when both of them finally get it together you actually get an idea how deep Jamie's feelings run. He takes care of Tori in a quiet but often overbearing way. I know this doesn't make much sense but read the book and you'll understand! We get a really good look at the sweetness that lies behind Jamie's cockiness and that is devastating. When he shows his soft side you want to gobble him up. Also, he has the filthiest mouth under the sun. HOLY MOLY was he hot. Tori isn't easy to love, at least not from Jamie's point of view. As a reader you learn why she is the way she is with him so I loved her most of the time. At some point I have had enough of her lying to Jamie about her feelings although I kind of got that it was their "game" - still, I could have done with a little less game and a little more truth about how she felt about him. Two things I need to mention because those were what made me deduct a star. Jamie's "alphaness" is really too much at times. I love a guy who is in charge like the next girl but the I imagined him a lot more easy-going from the way he was like in Four Letter Word. Which brings me to the next point - right in the beginning something happens that makes him really mad at Tori and he throws around derogatory (some might even qualify it as abusive) language and never apologizes for it. If a guy, no matter how gorgeous, called me what he called Tori and didn't apologize...the fact that he didn't really nagged at me for the first half of the book. Eventually, I let it go - still, that was for me unresolved. As I mentioned previously in my mini-review about Four Letter Word J. Daniels has that Kristen Ashley-esque vibe about her writing but she owns that style without duplicating KA which I appreciate. I think it all has to do with these alpha dudes and the multi-layered heroines. I loved watching Tori and Jamie fall in love, feeling how special it was what they had. I can't wait to see who the next book will be about. I'd love to see a story about Nate and Stitch and Shay! Until then, I'll be waiting impatiently to get my hands on the next one in this series.

When I began this book, I was anticipating a book full of witty banter, amazing sex, and overall hilarity. I was definitely NOT disappointed. But, even more importantly, there was something there even better than all of that … there was a depth of feeling I hadn’t experienced in quite a while. “I’m feeling like you need to let me go so I can do my job.” “Not happenin’,” he growled. “Not when I get moments like this with you. Not when I know it’s ain’t just me. I’m wearin’ you down.” Jamie & Tori have been bantering back and forth for months. On the surface it would appear the two of them are simply “dancing” toward an inevitable end of physical satisfaction. But as their story progressed, I saw more of them come out. Let’s just say this book had a LOT of highlights. There’s a lot to this story that I don’t want to share, simply because it’s SO worth it discovering all that are these characters for the first time. This is probably going to sound bad, but I had my expectations set pretty low for these characters. This is not to say I didn’t have faith in the writing of the characters, but I wasn’t certain how deep their stories would run. Overall this story was one that came out of nowhere for me. It made me laugh (out loud, I might add — I got looks!), it made me cry, and it made my heart full. It was great to get lost so deeply in light-hearted banter and find a story that could make me feel all the things.

HIT THE SPOT is the second installment in J. Daniels’ contemporary, adult DIRTY DEEDS erotic, romance series. This is professional surfer and surf shop owner twenty eight year old Jamie McCade, and diner waitress Tori Rivera’s story line. HIT THE SPOT can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous book is revealed where necessary. Some of the timeline runs parallel to the events of book one FOUR LETTER WORD. Told from dual first person perspectives (Jamie and Tori) HIT THE SPOT focuses on the tumultuous relationship between surfer Jamie McCade, and waitress Tori Rivera both of whom we met in book one FOUR LETTER WORD. Tori is best friends with Sydney Paige; Jamie is best friends and business partner with Brian ‘Dash’ Savage –the leading couple in Four Letter Word. For close to ninth months Tori and Jamie have danced around one another in a game of palpable, angry sexual energy until Jamie has had enough of their back and forth, and takes the next step in a relationship based upon mutual hatred and attraction-Jamie’s obsession with Tori and his foul mouth make for some curious comments and story line moments. Jamie is a rude, crude and obnoxious professional surfer- a manwhore- whose reputation and personality has rubbed our heroine in all of the wrong ways but Tori’s attraction to Jamie continues to grow despite their aggressive and sassy back and forth. Tori is a young woman determined to make it on her own whose most recent relationship ended when she discovered the man she thought she loved was already married with children. What ensues is the building love between Jamie and Tori-a love that will be tested time and again due in part to Tori’s inability to trust the man with whom she is falling in love. Shay and Stitch-Tori’s coworkers at the diner-return as their ‘friendship’ continues to hit the skids. Tori’s boss Nate is more or less absent throughout most of the book. We are introduced to Jamie’s sister Quinn McCade, and their brother Dr. Travis McCade, as well as Tori’s parents Dee and John Rivera. HIT THE SPOT is a sexy read about a man who makes no apologies for his behavior or his need for the woman that calls to his heart. There is plenty of cursing and vulgar language used by our story line hero. The premise is lighthearted, entertaining and erotic; the characters are colorful, charismatic and animated; the romance is sensational and inspiring. J. Daniels HIT THE SPOT is a riveting take on an enemy to friends to lovers trope that will seduce the reader in all of us.

The book was amazing! Jamie McCade is a total Loser or so you thought. He stole my heart over all of J. Daniels other book boyfriends. Tori Rivera or to Jamie as legs is doing her best to stay clear of this Loser. She is trying hard to protect her heart and let it turn soft. Will Jamie break her? You will have to read to find out

Let me be honest: throughout Hit The Spot, I wasn't sure whether I was falling for Jamie or ready to throttle him. Quite often, throttling won out. Jamie is a dudebro of the highest order. I couldn't believe half the things that came out of his mouth. I couldn't believe some of his lines worked on other girls! He drove me crazy. In other words, I had a lot of sympathy for Tori. I could see why she didn't want to be interested in Jamie, no matter how hot he was. I could see how she wanted more from a relationship than he would seemingly be able to offer. And I could definitely see how Jamie was hard to resist in spite of everything. After all, who doesn't love a good bad boy, especially one who's confident about what he has to offer? On the other hand, there's more to Jamie than meets the eye. The fact that he pursued Tori for nine months with little encouragement says something, as does the way he takes care of his friends. Jamie is generous of character, even if you have to dig past his partying surfer boy exterior to see it. While I wasn't sure I wanted Tori to actually get together with Jamie (he was such a douchecanoe), he quickly started growing on me and I became impressed by his perseverance and the way he really saw and understood Tori in a way others didn't. While he may have had a reputation as a "love 'em and leave 'em" kind of guy, it was clear Tori was different. After reading Four Letter Word, I knew once Tori and Jamie got together, the results would be explosive and I was right. They have chemistry in spades. Their banter is the strongest part of this novel. I couldn't get enough of it! That said, it took Jamie a while to be honest with Tori about his feelings, which would have gone a long way in addressing her insecurity about him. I wish the author would have handled this differently. I get that their game was for him to tell her how she felt about him and for her to deny it but it wouldn't have hurt him to tell her he cared, especially because he realized early on this wasn't going to be some fling. This is minor but Jamie's speech patterns irritated me. He almost never started sentences with a noun and often dropped the "g" in "-ing" words. I don't know anyone who consistently does the former and the latter didn't really make sense to me since we're not told he had a specific accent where that would make sense. Hit The Spot was a highly entertaining read. I couldn't put it down. The character growth was great. I loved seeing Tori and Jamie slowly open up to one another and take a risk on the relationship. When Jamie puts Tori ahead of his career, I swooned hard. It's like we got to see his true character and it was such a payoff. It was also fun seeing all the friends interact and how they're there for one another. I'm looking forward to book 3! Disclosure: I received an ARC from Forever in exchange for an honest review.

I had been wanting to read a book by J. Daniels for quite some time now and I finally got around to it, yay! I won’t deny the fact that this makes me very happy. With that being said, I’m usually the kind of person who likes to start with the bad news first and end on a good note. Luckily, there were only 2 minor things about this book that sort of bugged me. First off, I feel like the book started too fast. From the very beginning, Jamie was already obsessed with Tori and while I’m not opposed to love at first sight (or lust at first sight), I would’ve liked a little more information about how this happened or some kind of introduction to it. I will say that I did get over it rather quickly once I decided to just accept it as a given. The other thing that I didn’t like was the way Jamie spoke, mostly the fact that he never used pronouns at the beginning of a sentence. I know this sounds silly but for some reason, it kept totally throwing me off. I found myself re-reading his sentences all the time and it got annoying. But as I said before, these are both minor things and perhaps most readers won’t even have the same issues I had. As far as the story and the characters go, I have no complaints there. I really enjoyed Jamie and Tori’s interactions and I think they were both great characters. The story flowed perfectly well and was sexy and entertaining. I definitely will be reading more books by this author.

I didn’t know what I was getting into when I started Four Letter Word but it was safe to say I enjoyed it! I was excited when I heard there was going to be a second one and I was even more excited when I found out it was going to be about Tori and swoon worthy Jamie! I’m still more than stoked that I got a chance to read this one early because it was definitely fun! This book in one sentence: A push and pull love game that was fun and a perfect follow up! Is this love or just a game? Four Letter Word was fun, but this one was even more so! It was fun to watch Tori and Jamie interact in Four Letter word and it was just so right that we got a whole novel for them! Their story was incredibly fun and at times jaw dropping. I spent a good amount of time laughing and I found myself trying to read faster to find out what happened next! Jamie is something somewhat different than most of the men in the books I’ve read. He has a dirty mouthed, jerk, who doesn’t let go of what he wants. But he’s also incredibly loyal and was always down for Tori. Tori is the most stubborn of them all and as much as she’s said she’s not interested in Jamie, I mean, everyone knew the truth. Tori and Jamie bickered all the time and it was so funny because it showed how much they are alike. It was fun to see how a little game caused their relationship to unfold. This series is my first by J. Daniels and I’m for sure going to be diving into more of hers! Her writing in both of these were so smooth and so gripping, you start and you don’t want to put it down. The story grabs your attention and doesn’t let go and you immediately get lost in the story. With Four Letter Word and Hit The Spot you will most likely laugh with these characters but also feel for them at times. In the end, you’ll find yourself in love with them all.

“I wanted this to hurt. I wanted his touch tattooed on my skin. I wanted leave marks and bear his desperation tomorrow. And the next day. And the next….” “I looked down at her, at all of that beauty she was about to hand over to me for life. Trusting me with it. Forever. She was giving it. No layers. No lies. Just her. Tori Rivera. She was mine. Out her in my world and in hers, she as mine.” This. Book. Oh, how I love and I mean loved this book. From the moment I started reading Jamie and Tori’s story, I was hooked. Their connection and banter reminded me of something I would get out of a Kristen Ashley book. And if you know anything about me, you know what I huge fan I am of KA’s writing, so needless to say, I was hooked. Now, I could sit here and literally gush for hours about all the things that I love about this book, but I’m not going to do that. I am gonna lay out for you quick and easy…. Hit The Spot is by far and away my favorite book by this author to date. The banter and story-line seduce you from the very beginning. I could not get enough of Tori and Jamie’s interactions and banter. They had me begging for more and dying to see what would come out of their mouths next. They had amazing push and pull. I loved the will they/wont’t they moments. Their chemistry was intense, scorching and seriously off the charts. If I had a paperback in my hand, they would have melted the pages off. And Jamie….God!! He was 100% alpha male. He was a take no for answer, this is gonna happen, you know you want me type of alpha. But, he also had the sweet to go along with it. And Tori…God!!! She gave Jamie a run for his money. She was stubborn and prideful and gave just as good as she got. But, at the end of the day, she was 100% the perfect match for Jamie. Hit The Spot was everything that I wanted and more. It was sexy. It was fun. It was entertaining as hell. It had some frustrating moments, but for the most part was light on the drama. Simply put, this was just an honest to goodness great romance that I could not help but get lost in. And I just loved every second of it. I would definitely recommend checking this book out.

Arrogant much? I had a hard time seeing past Jamie's ego. There were many times I wanted to reach for my can of mace on principle alone. Then I'd get wrapped up in the back and forth that is Tori and Jamie and end up changing my mind. Never did I doubt the chemistry. Like a strangle hold it was hard to break loose from the electricity emitted. Hit the Spot aimed high with Jamie and Tori's heated romance. In the end J. Daniels ended on a high note with this laugh out loud battle of wills.

***4.5 ‘This Feels Like Forever’ ‘Stars*** After finishing Four Letter Word I knew that I'd be picking up the next book in the series just to see what kind of crazy Jamie and Tori put each other through. Never mind that the crazy they are putting each other through tends to drive me batsh$t crazy, I simply NEEDED to know if they end up killing each other or not (they didn’t but…) and I wasn't disappointed! Yes, they drove me batsh%t crazy throughout the entire book but I also found myself enjoying their unending battle of wills and having a difficult time putting the book down. Jamie and Tori. There were moments where I wanted to smack some sense into both of them, but they grew on me and in the end I ended up adoring both of them. Jamie is the total sexy, confident alpha male package. He really is. There were times when his confidence step a bit too far into arrogance for me, but that was tempered with how observant he was and a well hidden sweet side that not many got to experience. He’s a man of his word and when he is wrong, he admits it when it finally hits him that he may not have either read or handled the situation as well as he thought. Tori is full of moxie. Sweet, sassy, snarky and able to hold her own in most situations. But she’s also been blindsided by the guy that she thought she was in love with. That situation has left her with wounds that haven’t healed, even though she tries her damnedest not to let them show. I loved Tori’s outlook on life, the girl just wants to be happy and has found at least a bit of what she deems heaven. Her stubborn determination is admirable and when she lets someone into her heart, or “soft”, she’ll do anything for that person. Honestly, where does one start with Jamie and Tori’s relationship? From their very first meeting they were at each other’s throats and yet that elusive connection flared bright between them, but one had to wonder if one of them would end up dead before they finally hooked up. Obviously neither died. But their battle of wills ranged from hilarious to downright ridiculous and yet with battle they got deeper under each other’s skins until there was no denying the truth of what was between them. I can’t deny that their...interactions weren’t enjoyable, nor that I waffled constantly between being #TeamLoser or #TeamLegs because I got where both of them were coming from. They were both putting it all out there, but missing those key details to make the other truly get it. In the end though, I loved where they ended up. They fit each other perfectly and please note that you will be needing your B.O.B. powered up and/or an Arctic bath ready to jump in because they are nuclear together. This one had me all over the place while reading it. I waffled between being #TeamLoser or #TeamLegs (In the end it was both) and trying to pull a Jedi mind trick to get them do what I wanted, which they rarely did, but in the end I love the route that Ms. Daniels took for Jamie and Tori’s story, especially with Tori’s ex-a$$hat of a boyfriend. I thought he was handled perfectly. I loved hanging out with Wild and Trouble and Tori and Jamie’s family, I am hoping that a certain Doctor may be up for a book one day *BSEG* But for now I’m gonna cross my toes for a Shay and Stitch to be the next ones up, because dear lord do I love a tall, dark and broody man who can cook! ~ Copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley & voluntarily reviewed ~
