Full Blurb

He rejected her. She loathes him. Now they have to fool everyone and pretend they actually like each other.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he’s sowed his last wild oat.
Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London’s sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other’s throats.
Fate and a favour conspire to put Tanner and Belle back in each other’s paths and they’re forced to do a lot more than get along to save face and their careers.
Rage turns to passion and tempers run sizzling hot when they realise they aren’t just falling for each other—they’re jumping head first. And neither have the endurance to keep their hands to themselves. endurance teaser 1.jpg


I cheers my beer with hers and chug the rest down. I drop the bottle and begin swirling Indie around in a childish spin that sends us both flying in different directions and crashing to the ground. Hot, sweaty hands wrap around me and pull me to my feet.
“Thank you, Good Samaritan,” I slur, turning to face my gallant saviour.
When my eyes glance up and focus, I’m stunned by the bearded vision before me. “You look like a guy I know!”
He clutches his hands firmly around my waist and holds me to him. “You look like a girl I want to know.”
I laugh half-heartedly and try to pull away.
“Are you trying to leave me, lass?” he slurs into my ear.
I frown and my head bobbles. “How could I leave you, Jesus? You’re God’s son…You’re everywhere.” I throw my hands out wide to punctuate my “everywhere” and attempt to stumble away.
He grabs me again, this time his hands dipping lower to my arse. My good mood evaporates instantly. “Hey!” I shout. “Watch your fucking hands!”
I attempt to shove him away, but he feels like one of those doors that you push when you’re supposed to pull. He doesn’t budge. He leans in close and whispers in my ear, “I’d like to put my hands on your tight little—”
Right when I’m about ready to punch the wank stain in his vile mouth, I nearly fall over as a strange momentum spins me away. The man’s hands are no longer groping me. They are now pinned deftly behind his back by no other than—
“Tanner?” I utter with a gasp, my hands covering my mouth at the shock of the scene before me.
“Shove the fuck off, you disgusting prat, before I turn your wrist into a pretzel.” Tanner pushes him into a nearby table, and the man almost topples over but catches himself before scurrying away without a look back.
Blue, angry eyes swerve to me. “Ryan,” Tanner growls, slicing a hand through his hair to get it off of his face. “I’ve texted you like twenty times.”
“I…I…I haven’t looked at my mobile in a while.”
“No fucking shit.” His bearded jaw is taut with anger. “I’m taking you home.”
He reaches out for my arm but I yank it away from him.
“No, you’re not.”
His shoulders rise and fall with a deep breath. “I’m taking you home. You’re completely pissed.”
My eyes narrow. “Of course I am. It’s Tequila Sunrise night.”
“I don’t give a fuck,” he snaps. “Let’s go.”
I shoot him a murderous look when a voice interrupts us. “I’ve got mine. You got yours?” I turn to see Camden holding a sleepy-looking Indie against his body.
Determination slices through Tanner’s voice. “I’ve got her.”
I turn to face him, stumbling a bit as I wag my finger in his face. “Hey, I am not yours!” Suddenly, Tanner bends over and I’m airborne for a second, landing heavily on top of his shoulder. “Are you fucking kidding me, Harris?” I begin pounding on his back but it’s to no avail. “I’m in a dress. My arse is hanging out for all of England!”
“Your arse was hanging out when you spread out on the floor a minute ago. I’m taking you home, Ryan. Even if you’re kicking and screaming.”
“You’re such an arrogant arsehole!” My hands stop their assault on Tanner’s backside in favour of covering my rump. This is mortifying. I hang my head and let my hair cover my face, praying like fuck I don’t see anyone I know. “I can’t believe this is happening.”
“Believe it, woman.” Tanner pauses at the door and turns his body so my head is facing a different direction. “Now, tell this nice man I’m not a rapist.”
A bouncer-looking bloke turns his head upside down to make eye contact with me. I mumble, “He’s not a rapist. Just a walking dead man.” I straighten a bit with my crescendoed scream. The bouncer lets out a hearty laugh that dumps hot coals into the pit of my belly. So not the reaction I was looking for.
He moves to let us pass and then Tanner drops me down in front of a cab. I ball up my fists and wallop him a few times. “I’m not a petulant child, you animal.”
He doesn’t even flinch.
I exhale in concession and fold myself in behind Indie and Camden. When we’re all in the cab and it begins moving, Tanner breaks the silence with a surprisingly jovial tone. “Well, did you all have a fun night?”



Pahahaha...boy does Tanner meet his match. And not the match he is used to either. I never thought Tanner Harris, famous footballing whore, could be tamed. Lord, was I wrong. 

We see Belle in the first Harris brother book, Challenge. She is the crazy best friend to Indie. We see a good bit of her, but not enough to fully get her crazy. And OH MY LANTA is this broad cray cray. Phew...she had ME all kids of crazy. I wanted you slap her a few times. Ok, maybe more than a few. 

Belle didn't have a childhood that is full of glitterfarting unicorns and wildflowers. Being the only daughter to Lord Ryan, who is aiming for a seat on the Supreme Court, she has a lot to live up to. But when she falls a lot short of what her parents expect of her, they basically disown her for all intents and purposes. Even though she has an amazing, very rewarding career, it's not enough. Not for a Ryan. She doesn't want the Ryan lifestyle though. A stuffy, stuck up life, is the last thing Belle ever wanted. So she makes a life of her own. Her life is everything she wants it to be. She has a career that gets all of her attention. She parties when she wants to. Hooks up with someone when needed. The last thing she wants is a relationship. Atleast until Tanner. Belle loves to hate Tanner. If they aren't fighting, then they aren't living. 

Tanner gets himself in more trouble than not. As a famous footballer, there are certain bounds you can't cross and certain things you can't do, but Tanner doesn't care. He does what he wants, when he wants, consequences be damned. Football and his family are his life, and always will be. When you hear of the Harris family or the Harris brothers, you think football. They go hand in hand. He lives the life of a forever bachelor. He will never commit and never settle down. Plan and simple. Until he finds himself in a pickle and there is only one way to get out of it. Even though it's his idea, he still doesn't like it. But dating Belle seems to be the only way. Forever ones sake. But 'sitting still' is exactly what he needed. Everything comes into perspective and life finally makes sense, in more ways than once. All with the help of the one woman he can't have and gets under his skin. 

For Tanner and Belle, fighting with each other is their life. Until it turns into their love. I loved seeing their craziness mash. 

I absolutely loved Belle. She always spoke her mind, and never help back. Especially with Tanner. She was quick to bust his bubble. Which kept me laughing. He's not used to women fighting WITH him, only OVER him. 

I laugh. I cried. I laughed some more. This one is just, awesome. I love the Harris family. 

Meet “the other” Harris TWIN  in Challenge!
