I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.

My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.

When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just the cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.

One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.

Author Bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

Sybil Bartel is a new author to me and Rough was a very fun read.  When I started Rough within the first chapter or two I started to think great this is going to one of those stories where the sex overweighs the love story and this is one of those instant love books where the characters go at warp speed and make the book predictable.  Well, I was glad to be very wrong.  Jared and Sienna do develop feelings for each other quickly but Sybil Bartel pulls it off while making the story one you will remember.
Jared is an escort and Sienna is a woman who has been treated like garbage by her last boyfriend.  Their worlds collide when Jared's friend needs him to take over for one of his escort dates.  The true alpha, arrogant personality of Jared is something you will probably hate or love but I love love loved it while reading Rough.  I love an over the top arrogant alpha male and Jared doesn't disappoint. The banter between him and Sienna and how it made their love story so much fun was one of my favorite parts of the book.
Rough is steamy but the author can pull off the building of their relationship perfectly at the same time.  When you first glance at this book you might think it will go in a certain direction but hold on because it turns when you least expect it.  Definitely, do not judge a book by its cover is what I needed to tell myself after seeing Jarred was an escort because you get the feels with this book and I suggest you go and dive in and devour it.  I will be putting Sybil on my auto-read pile in the future.
