When the name of the game is hot action for pure satisfaction, what happens when one of the players changes how they define satisfaction?

As a much in demand architect, Seth Edwards has been blessed with the funds and freedom to do what he wants, and what he wants to do is indulge in as many sexy interludes as possible with Eva Delucca.

A lifetime of watching her mother cycle through men like underwear convinced Eva being spoiled with frequent glamorous trysts by Eveready Edwards is the ultimate in satisfaction, until a bet forces her to re-evaluate her future. Except beyond his future projects—which frequently take him all over the country—the word future has never been part of Seth's vocabulary.

Can more action than he can handle convince her ramblin' man they might achieve a deeper satisfaction if they look beyond the action?

"Action and Satisfaction" is the touching and entertaining story of Eva and Seth. Eva is a strong, professional woman who had a hard time growing up, but has made the best of it and came out on top. She had known Seth for years before they began a fling, never intending to develop feelings for him. She knows that Seth is not the type to settle down and that she must end their on and off relationship before she gets hurt more than she already has. Her genius plan of giving him a taste of his own medicine and sending him in his way isn’t working. Now, Eva knows that she must leave town and Seth behind, before her heart is in more pieces than she can pick up and fix.

Seth is a good looking man who has always enjoyed his life. He is an architect and never stays in any one place any longer than it takes to complete the job and move on to the next. He always looks forward to taking jobs in his hometown, so that he and Eva can reconnect. When his latest homecoming doesn’t turn out as he hoped, he is left wounded and disappointed. Despite every romantic trick he has come up with, Seth cannot get Eva to give in and rekindle their relationship.

I enjoyed every aspect of this story, from the strong and likeable characters to the interesting story of Eva and Seth. The editing was clean, the passion was hot, the writing flowed well and the plot moved at a perfect pace.
