When we met Wes, he was involved with Katie, but their split leaves everyone confused, He won’t talk about what happened, and he was the one they thought would be marrying first. Wes is at a business meeting in downtown Richmond, at an upscale bar, he notices the lovely lady that sits alone with the deer-in-the-headlights look. When she leaves alone, he also leaves but shocked to see her enter a seedier bar, and he follows and ends up rescuing her. When she propositions him to join her at her motel, it’s a one night stand, so why not, but he tells her, it will be my way, my rules.
Charlotte Heffington, aka Charlie, has lived the most sheltered life, and at twenty-nine, she has a bucket list and plans on crossing items off and living for a change. Number one on the list, have sex with a stranger. Charlotte has always played by the rules, doing what she was told, but she wants to experience things she was always denied because of being sick and spending so much time in hospitals. To experience the most erotic night of her life to then being blackmailed, dealing with her dying father, her cousin’s threats, and then to find the man she has only known as Wes is someone she and Sister Catherine are hoping will help the Children’s home, finds her in a new situation.
The plot is full of angst, passion, new experiences, control, emotional situations and being pulled in so many directions you don’t know what to do. From being blackmailed by a family member trying to force an unwanted marriage, her passion trying to help disadvantaged children, to being blackmailed by another into sexual servitude, has Charlie being a pawn in so many games. The plot twists have you admiring Charlie for sticking to her agreement, never revealing the truth, her jubilant experiences of the simple things with childlike enthusiasm to her ultimate surrender to the passion that Wes helps her experience. The interaction and dialog of the characters are heartwarming, emotional and even entertaining. The chemistry between Wes and Charlie is explosive with passion and desire, even if they each try to deny their true feelings. Sometimes in life, you have to ignore everyone else and allow yourself the freedom to feel and experience life, love and happiness, no matter what the cost, and maybe, just maybe, in the end, you will get your happily ever after ending.
I have another gripe which many probably consider unimportant and nit-picky, and in some ways it is, but it's the kind of thing that keeps this book (and the series) from rising higher in my personal rankings. It's patently obvious to anyone with the slightest knowledge of the area that BJ Wane has never been anywhere near Richmond, VA. While you may be able to see the Appalachian Mountains from Richmond (I'm not sure of this point), they are called the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and the only time they're "snow-capped" (a description she uses in all 4 books, I think) is in the middle of winter when it has just snowed. Having driven over and through the Appalachians all of my youth, this really irked me, especially since it kept being repeated. The Appalachian Mountains are old, old mountains and not that high as mountains go.
Then, in this book, we have Wes's yacht docked on the James River, and then in the Atlantic Ocean with no passing of time. It takes a little while to travel the 60-70 miles to get to the Hampton-Virginia Beach area. Please look at a map.
These sorts of errors are jarring to anyone who knows the location, even marginally, which knocks me out of the story. To compare, take Candace Blevins Safeword series set in Chattanooga, TN. It is obvious that the author knows the area intimately. It might help Wane's writing if she set her next books in a location she's familiar with. Please?
