Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right?
Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need. As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender. But even as enemies seek deadly revenge against him, she’ll discover that her greatest threat is falling for her fiercely guarded boss…and yielding to her own darkest needs.
This book was good, I didn't love it unfortunately. The sex scenes were hot, but nothing compared to Selena Kitt or Sylvia Day. They were on the shorter side and just weren't really that descriptive. And it was straight and to the point. Not much foreplay which obviously sets the mood for the whole scene. I would definitely read another book by Sara Fawkes simply because she thought outside the box and it really did make a difference in my overall opinion.
About 50% into the book I really wanted to give up on this book. Not because it's bad because it's not but because every other 'bdsm' book is going the same now days. Some bottom of the line worker is seen by the million or billionaire or even bajillionaire and he instead has to hire her for some outrageous, essentially stupid position and have sex with her. So she's technically a fancy hooker. and then he likes her. But he can't love her for some random reason. And then some threat is involved and he has to keep her safe. And then its all over and he still can't love her. Sorry about the rant, but you know its true. So I was really thinking this book was going to follow that path....
It did somewhat, but it was very different at the same time. There was a whole lot more threat in the whole somebody's trying to kill us part. And way more deep and detailed. There was so much drama I almost couldn't keep up. The ending is what really made me give it a 4 star rating. I was incredibly relieved that it didn't end like fifty shades. With the whole marriage and happy ending bullshit. The ending to this book was really amazing. I can't picture it ending any other way.
And I just want to say sorry its been taking me forever to read one book and I've been posting mostly movie reviews, but since its the holidays and I work in retail, I've been working like crazy. And its so much faster to watch a movie and it helps me wind down. But have no fear, it'll be over soon.
