My particular weakness is hunks in suits. Throw in billionaire and I’ll follow blindly wherever you want to lead me. This led me straight to a broody, sexy, always-in-control alpha; his independent, vocal, determined new assistant who has other motives besides wanting to fix him; and sexual tension that combusts into one of the hottest, most well-written sex scenes this duo has written. And that’s saying A LOT, because they write sexy like few others.
This was a cleverly written, quick, hot read with a bit of mystery that has me guessing plus extremely anxious for book two. It’s written from broody Blake’s POV, so it should be interesting indeed. Will he reveal the secrets I suspect he’s holding?
It was also a fun surprise to see some of the authors’ Lost In Oblivion characters play an integral part of this book. Anyone who hasn’t read that series will see them just as well-developed secondary characters. But for those familiar with the series it will be like catching up with old friends. I can’t wait to see how their roles play out in books 2-4.
It’s the start of a great series. Don’t miss it.
This, however, was a quick read, and didn't give me enough time to do so. I actually found myself upset that it ended so quickly.
I usually hate reading pros and cons lists during reviews, but I feel one might be best suited for mine, so here goes:
Pros: Jesus Christ is Blake hot. Like...I could never work for him kind of hot. He sounds like a sexy human grizzly bear, and that's alright with me. I love Grace's personality. She's likable, and very easy to relate to. Being a fellow artist, I do enjoy her passion for her medium (glass), and feel it's a cute coincidence that her new crush is just as passionate about it as well--definitely the fluff fairy tales are made of. The book, as I mentioned before, does go at a steady pace, so there are no dull lulls that give you time to lose interest. I also noticed little if any spelling/grammatical errors (book 2 had loads, however). The sex scene was H.O.T! Lawdhavehismercy when he told her he was definitely going to "F" her, erasing any doubt from her mind that it wouldn't happen...I melted all over the pillows propping me up to read. Good writing there. Aggressive enough to make your eyebrows jump, but not so much that it makes you feel like he's overdoing it and going to a scary place.
Cons: The authors don't describe Grace's appearance. I only learned from Vi that she was blonde--I had no clue as to her ethnicity or even skin tone until it was implied later on in the book. The glass talk during the first few chapters (especially the first) was overkill. It was just way too much, like Grace's world was made of glass itself. I get it, she likes glass, but pull back--we don't all feel that way about it, and will find it hard to relate. Jake doesn't seem like office-material. Undoing his tie during mid-day to stuff it into his back pocket? Making sexist remarks to someone he hardly even knows? Seems like an overgrown kid in daddy's clothing. The part of the story that threw me the most (and almost made me put the book down) was the threatening of the front desk admin, Vi, when she wouldn't let Grace in. I've been front desk admin for many years, and let me tell you, if you ever threatened to rip my tonsils out once you got into the building, not only were you not getting in, you were getting the cops called on you. I feel the writing went WAY too far with that scene, and should have been a simple, "I swear, if you make me late for my first day and I get canned, I'm taking you down with me", or something to that effect. Threatening bodily harm is just ridic, and throws off the vibe of the story completely.
I'm so glad I didn't read this before part II came out, or I'd be pissed. I'm not into cliffhangers at all, so thank God I was able to jump to the next part right away.
I'd def. recommend this read, and--as a matter of fact, have already recommended it to a few friends who are into what "Fifty Shades Of Grey" eludes to with a dominant male partner, and somewhat submissive yet sassy sub.
