The Maxwell family is back, and now, it's time to let the black sheep have his turn at happiness. I am a HUGE fan of K.A. Linda's Record series. As Brady Maxwell's brother, Clay Maxwell was a compelling side character from the very beginning. He had a story to tell, and I couldn't wait to hear it.

(Synopsis) Clay Maxwell is a smart, quick witted, sex-driven, manwhore with the good looks to match. Plenty of women have shared his bed, but only one has ever been constant, Andrea.
Their rules were simple. When they’re together, it’s just the two of them. When they’re apart, anything is fair game. And it worked. For ten years.
But one of them has changed the game…
Clay must decide if his player ways are worth losing the one girl who has always been there.
“What’s going on?” Andrea asked.
Liz plopped into the chair next to Andrea. “It is a madhouse! Be glad that Clay is already with you,” she said, brushing her long blonde hair out of her face. “Brady got all caveman on me when I said I had to find my own seat! He didn’t want me to leave his side, but it’s not like I can sit with all the congressmen!”
“He just likes having you with him,” Andrea said sensibly.
Liz brightened at the words. “Yeah. He’s a little protective.”
“A lot,” she admitted. “But he had to be during all the election chaos we had to deal with.”
Andrea tapped Liz on the hand. “Honey, that runs in the Maxwell blood.”
“I’ve noticed,” Liz said, looking pointedly at Clay.
“You’re lucky though,” Andrea said. “Brady is a great guy. A respectable man. It was nice to see him settle down and with someone who could keep up with him.”
That sounded strangely like a compliment. Clay had never really been sure what Andrea thought of Liz. Their first meeting, in which Andrea had called Liz boring and promptly told him not to fuck her, had been pretty memorable. Since then, the two hadn’t exactly gotten off on the right foot, but it seemed that they both were becoming more accommodating to the other. He didn’t even know when that had happened. He seemed to be missing a lot lately.
Liz shot Andrea a surprised look, and then her gaze moved down to her engagement ring. “I’m glad to see him settle down, especially with everything we’ve been through.”
“This is good for you two.”
“Thanks, Andrea,” Liz said with a warm smile.
Clay pretended not to be paying attention when Liz leaned over and whispered to Andrea, “And what about you and your Maxwell brother? Can you get the black-sheep bad boy to settle down? Can you tame his ways?”
Andrea laughed. “I don’t want to tame him. I like him the way he is—wild and mine.”
