ARC Review: House Rules by Cathryn Fox

This is Part 2 in the "Dossier" novella series. The series is about a group of friends who leave a birthday dossier for one another that includes a list of things that have to be done when each reaches a certain age. I did not read the first book in the series and it isn't required to read this one. I don't think there are any spoilers of preceding books so if you want to read this book, you can feel free to start the series right here.

This is one of Cathryn Fox's short dirty novellas. It's only 90 pages but it delivers everything you need to satisfy your craving for a bossy alpha male, a heroine who finds herself and lots and lots of steam. Kennedy has been in love with Sean since she is a teenager. Sean is the older brother of Kennedy's best friend. He has treated Kennedy like an annoying kid sister and never like a woman. So when Kennedy gets her dossier and it directs her to a location where she encounters Sean, it's her chance to shoot her shot. What Kennedy doesn't know is that as much as she has wanted Sean over the years he's been barely repressing his desire for her. When Kennedy shows up as a stripper at a club that Sean frequents, all the little sister best friend bets are off.

Sean comes up with a crazy idea to keep Kennedy around so they can explore whatever it is they have together without the dossier making things temporary. From the first time Sean is with Kennedy, he feels like one time is not going to be enough. Kennedy feels the same. The interesting thing about this book is that Sean doesn't tell Kennedy that he knows the girl he met in the club is the same girl he grew up with and Kennedy mostly believes he doesn't know. When Kennedy finally figures out Sean knows who she is, she doesn't tell him she knows. The couple spends most of the short book exploring what they have and unleashing some crazy chemistry. There isn't much of a story here because hey, it's only 90 pages. I have to say though, to be a novella, I really enjoyed these characters and I can absolutely say that the book is worth reading.
