Women fall all over him. Why wouldn’t they? He’s tall, successful, an Olympic gold-medalist, and blond-haired-blue-eyed charmer who knows how to get what he wants. Scott Merchant has everything figured out...with one exception: Cassie Walker.
Within the first hour of meeting Cassie, arrogant playboy Scott wants her. He puts her in the category of obnoxious, ridiculous...and hot. He’s oddly attracted to her brash attitude and her refusal to be impressed by him. For Scott, Cassie becomes his next challenge.
Cassie, the twin sister of Unlikely Hero’s Marcus Walker, has no use for Scott’s plastered-on smile. His take-what-you-can-get-out-of-life attitude, however, she can match. Scott’s Real Challenge is finding a way to keep that core-deep self true...all the time. Dropping the “strut and charm” may be more than he can handle. Scott loves a challenge, but staying real may prove too difficult. Cassie is worth his efforts, and does her best to inspire him as often as she can.
Real Challenge begins where the first book left off. Cassie meets Scott at her brother's house warming party. She instantly has him figured out as a snob, but is surprised when he starts dishing back at her what she threw at him. She actually accepts his invite for dinner. These two have a few dates before Cassie decides they should give it time because Scott is so busy from work. So they decide to wait to see each other in two months when he's not so busy, and figure out what he wants. Scott doesn't know what to do with Cassie. He knows that she is so different from anyone he's ever been with before, and he's just not sure how to act. She makes him think differently, and he makes her happy, and joyful. These two have a bumpy road ahead, but they will work hard to get over everything to be together.
I liked this one a lot more than the first one. I didn't understand really the whole wait two months thing, but it paid off in the end. I loved Cassie. She has this awesome personality, and she's not afraid to be who she is. I just loved her all the way around. And Scott, well I didn't really like him at first but he grew on me through out the book I actually ended up really liking him. And I loved both of them together. It was also awesome to get to see more of Erin, and Marcus. And now I'm excited for the next book because the end of this one left me kind of confused about the next book's main characters.
