I loved the Titans series and thought I would also love this one. However based on the 1st book I am not sure I will read the rest. I am sorry to say I did not like the hero or the heroine in this book.

I had put this book on my wish list waiting for a price drop and when it went down to 99 cents I snatched it up. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. The H is so stalker-ish and controlling that I hoped there would be a plot twist and he would be the villain. The h was immature and weak. They finally meet and suddenly she's hopelessly in love with him? Neither character appealed to me. Maybe if the author would have delved into the digital relationship for the first couple of chapters, I would have connected with the characters.
Didn't care for this book.

*I was given a copy of this book as a gift from Stephanie's Book Reports in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book in the Starkis Family series, and it is the story of Deacon and Mia.

What a great start to what I am sure is going to be a great series! Deacon Starkis is an elusive billionaire who is well known for his playboy status. He goes through women like water. When he fist catches a glimpse of Mia modeling for his lingerie company, he is instantly drawn to her. At first, his only goal is to sleep with her, but as he and Mia email and text for a few months, his feelings for her develop.

Mia has been in a relationship with Drew for eight years. Even though her best friend, El, repeatedly tells her what a loser he is, she refuses to break up with him. When Deacon starts emailing her, she believes that he is just out for one thing-sex. When she finally realizes that she has only stayed with Drew out of comfort, she decides to end things. Once she spends time with Deacon, it doesn't take long for her to fall in love with him. She knows that in order to maintain a relationship with him, she will have to accept his past. While she may be able to get past his previous "manwhore" ways, Deacon is keeping a secret that has the power to destroy their new found relationship. When his secret finally comes out, both he and Mia must decide if they are willing to do whatever it takes to hang onto one another.

As I stated earlier, this is a great debut for this new series! Cheryl Douglas is an excellent writer who really knows how to create a great story! This is a standalone with no cliffhanger! Yay for that!! If you are looking for a great love story filled with some hot and steamy moments, this is the perfect book for you!

When Deacon Starkis sets his sights on the gorgeous young model gracing the pages of his glossy catalogue, he knows he has to have her. One problem. She’s not available. But that won’t stop Deacon. He’s a man used to getting what he wants and he wants Mia.

Mia is stunned when she receives an email from the elusive billionaire who owns the lingerie company she models for. He tells her he’s intrigued. He’s not the only one. But she knows she’d be a fool to throw away an eight year relationship for a brief affair with the head honcho. He doesn’t do relationships and she doesn’t do casual sex. It seems they’re at an impasse.

Who will come out on top in this battle of wills? The dominant one or the woman intent on teaching him the meaning of submission?

LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!!! The chemistry between Mia & Deacon is HOT!!! This book was very well written and it was a GREAT read!!!

Deacon Starkis is the billionaire owner of the lingerie company that Mia Barnes models for, but one look at her picture and he wants her for his own pleasure not his company's.
Mia is in a long term relationship when Deacon starts sending her text and emails wanting to be with her. Mia's problem is that she's been in this relationship for so long, even though he's a deadbeat, she really doesn't know anything else, but she does know that Deacon is a man whore.
Mia is nothing like the other women in Deacon's life, she never sleeps around, she has only been in one serious relationship, and her parents do not like her career choice.
When you start this story you think "Good job Mia, you gave up a deadbeat for a obsessed man", but once you really get into the story you realize there's more to Deacon then just obsession.
Mia is one thing that Deacon's never had, a person who will stand up to him to him and make him work for what he wants. Yes it seems like he's obsessed with her, but before they even meet he gets to know her as no one truly has just from texts and emails.
I really didn't like Deacon in the beginning and thought Mia was totally naive, but as I continued reading I learned more about them. Yes, Mia is young, but she knows what she does and doesn't want and yes Deacon is a man whore, but true love and change people at their core.
She truly falls for him as he falls for her, but his past stands in their way.
Will he let his last eat him alive? Can Mia forgive him? All the answers come to those who read their story. I can not wait to see where this family goes next.
