he's dark, brooding and not someone you want to cross and piss off. But he's also got an artistic and caring side of him, except since the character he interacted with previously was Nathan, that side wasn't revealed in a flattering light. I was intrigued to read more about Elias, though, because despite his beef with Nathan, he didn't seem like that bad of a guy.
Elias is a very nomadic character, someone who comes and goes and never stays anywhere for very long. His job is photojournalism, which allows him to travel around the globe. This prevents him from having committed relationships so Elias prefers to seek company with professional escorts. That way, he can walk away without any expectations to come back or share parts of himself that are too personal. I was pleasantly surprised by Elias overall and how much that I liked him. He might be my favorite hero of this entire series so far.
Ruby is the escort that Elias has hand picked for himself. She's intelligent, independent and has no desire to be emotionally involved with anyone. She and Elias have off-the-charts chemistry and I loved how they interacted. If it weren't obvious that they were client-customer, they had a truly comfortable dynamic with each other that centered around respect and mutual understanding, with the bonus of hot sex, too. I also liked how their relationship evolved, where they didn't want anything serious and found that they needed each other more than they cared to admit and it made them reorganize their priorities in life.
Now don't get me wrong I loved Nathan and Adele in the books prior, but Elias and Ruby are now the front runners. I love how Alex can take a story line and get you so emtionally involved in the book.
OK so lets talk Elias first, we first met him in Nathan's books and let's face it he was an ass. Once you dive into this book my heart broke for him, his lose of his sister effected him on such a greater level. He was lost and the way he dealt with that was sex and being an ass. He was was just looking for a release when he met Ruby, but got so much more.
Ruby is a smart, beautiful, and has had more heartache then one person should have a young age. Her intelligence is what blew me away I loved reading when she talked about the history of religion. She was given a crap hand in life and powered through. I feel any other character paired with Elias wouldn't have worked the way Ruby did.
Alex Lucian is beyond just and author when I read his books. He is a genius at holding you captive from start to finish.
Ever since reading Tempting and Provocative I've been very interested and intrigued by Nathan's brother in-law Elias. Grieving so much for his sister Diana and he was always so moody and angry, that I just couldn't wait to read his story.
Yes, the premise wasn't something new but the characters was what made this book. Ruby was an intelligent and down to earth woman. An orphan but still determined to make it on her own. Already had one bachelor degree and was studying to get her masters. She was a wonderful and strong character that I connected with instantly. She had a sensible look at her work as an escort.
Elias was still a grieving brother who was only focused on his job. When he met Ruby he slowly started to change. I liked how intrigued he was by Ruby's intelligence and wasn't just with her because of her body and appearance. She truly impressed him with her knowledge.
I really enjoyed how they both tried to viewed their agreement professionally and how they both slowly let their guards down. The build up on their friendship and then leading to lovers was done at a perfect pace. I enjoyed them together. At first how detached and clinical it was, to how sensual and passionate it became between them. Cause damn they were sizzling hot together.
Ruby's friend and colleague Stella was great too and added some humor to the story with her clients and their strange fetishes.
This was a fabulous story, flawlessly written with a lot of chemistry between Elias and Ruby. If this is the last book in the Tempting series, then I can honestly say that Alex Lucian is going out with a bang.
