Ashley's one desire is to be a great artist. Then she meets a man, falls in love, marries, and has a son. When her husband dies, she discovers his father has unsavory connections that allow him to get legal custody of her child. Now all Ashley wants is her son. Even her success in her art doesn't make up for her loss.
The hero was on his way to becoming an Olympic fencer, but his father insisted he give up fencing and concentrate on his studies. Collin and his twin brother are supposed to take their place in the family business, a large oil corporation. Before that can happen, the father dies. Our hero signs over his company shares to his brother in return for the family estate and his parents' possessions in it. When he learns his brother has stolen his mother's jewelry and his parents' art collection, he wants revenge.
Naturally, the hero's brother is involved with the heroine's villainous in-laws. Naturally, the hero and heroine come together to take down the bad guys.
Excellent character building.
Ashley Gordon starts out as a young woman seeking her dreams with much ambition and passion. She did whatever it took to get to the top of her profession. Sometimes sleeping with wealthy, aristocratic men. One day she finds the love of her life, marries, and has a son. Tragedy strikes. A plane crash kills her husband, leaving her, battling for custody over her son to his estranged, shady mother and father, but loses him.
I could really relate to Ashley as far as battling for one's children. This part of her made me care for her. But my favorite character in the book is Collin Deverall. Born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth to an oil tycoon and a beautiful Italian-born mother, he had everything. However, he didn't want any part of his father's business until one day both parents are killed in an explosion in another country, he loses his mother's paintings while gallivanting the world, is betrayed by his twin brother, and almost loses his father's business to the mob. He takes on a modern day persona of Robinhood taking back what belongs to him and spreading goodwill to an old friend.
Eventually, Ashley and Collin come together by fate. The two have two different hatchets to bury with Ashley's shady father-in-law. They both play a deadly game to get back what was taken from them.
There's a lot of good chemistry between the two along with hot moments in adventure and the bedroom. There is also great details and description of the old New York City and the Twin Towers.
I really enjoyed the read. It flowed nicely at a good pace. And I rooted for both characters all the way through.
