From New York Times Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan comes a sexy and sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite.
He’s rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.
And she’s stranded with him for an entire week.
He knows the sexy stranger doesn’t belong in his small town, but he’s determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.
She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.

“A steamy and red-hot enemies-to-lovers romance like I’ve never read before!” – Beneath the Covers Book Blog
“It was FREAKING FANTASTIC! Sexy, charming, and full of witty banter, I couldn’t get enough of Luke and Charlotte!”
– Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads
Sexy Stranger would make one fantastic romantic comedy movie (of the X Rated variety;)
A small town guy lives an undistracted and routine life running his family business, still looking for the right woman to settle down with because he was burned before by a woman looking for more than his little, quiet town could offer.
A big city girl, running from a high society life that was chosen for her, breaks down in the middle of nowhere – a place she clearly doesn’t belong and finds herself face to face with a “rude redneck” – a man who she’s not quite sure if she wants to slap or rip his clothes off due to his arrogant nature and downright rude preconceptions about the kind of girl she is.
The plot line of Kendall Ryan’s latest would make for one hell of a country song because the disdain and hostility Luke Wilder and Charlotte Fremont feel for on another upon their initial meeting is palpable, but then again, so is the sexual tension that sizzles around them and doesn’t subside until they give into what they’re feeling and soak up the days they have together until Charlotte goes back to her world and Luke stays planted in his own.
I love stories that smash misconceptions of certain stereotypes; Luke nor Charlotte hide their contemptuous feelings for one another based on one interaction – a confrontation that spins into Luke living up to his country redneck label and Charlotte easily fitting into the bratty rich girl façade who has no business in a place that doesn’t have a Starbucks and only has one stoplight.
Kendall Ryan sets up both her hero and heroine to typecast the other one and when they learn the truth – when they witness the reality of who one another actually is, they both realize that they may come from different worlds but they sure as heck are nothing like they perceived each other to be.
Shady Grove, Texas, might be in the middle of nowhere and it might not be as fast-paced or in your face as Charlotte’s New York City life was, but in this country town, she evolves into the person she wants to be…she finds her true self – the one who doesn’t cater to her parents simply because she wants to have their approval and the one who revels in her witty remarks and sassy attitude because they only make her more real and everything that Luke Wilder can’t get enough off, even if there’s an expiration date on their time together.
Sexy Stranger is a story about finding what one needs in the most unusual places; it’s about not trying to fit into a cookie cutter life because there’s nothing unique or worthwhile in that kind of existence. It’s about defying misconceptions about the type of person someone is and proving unequivocally that she is so much more than anyone ever thought she was. It’s about finding the simple pleasures in life and surrounding oneself with people who see who a person truly is or at least the work-in-progress that’s occurring.
It’s sexy, sweet, and sassy, and its setting is a town I would love to spend time in quite simply because it forces a person to slow down a bit and realize who s/he is and what s/he wants out of life. And, with a man like Luke Wilder by a girl’s side, she definitely can’t go wrong with whatever ways she decides to live her life…just as long as she lives it for herself and no one else.
