Case in point: "Don't...don't rape me." "Sweetie, I would never."
Firstly, if a woman has to tell you that, she does not want sex.
But cut to next 30 minutes or more: h saying no it hurts no i can't and H saying you like this you get off on this I'm doing this and then actually doing it.
There are some triggers and this is more on the dark side of romance, but I don't think this should dissuade anyone from reading this book. I happily recommend this book (and author) to anyone wanting a thrilling, romantic adventure.
The plot will have Sydney and Nate together from New York to the Dominica Republic where he takes this shy reserved woman and dominates her, controlling situations and pushing her beyond her comfort zone. Together, they will join the mile high club while on the plane and before long, he will take over her vacation at a resort and move her to the area he is in taking care of family business.
“That was ten shades of wicked.”
Nate has an uncanny way of avoiding answering questions Syd ask him and instead turns the tables and conversation back to her. The story has two tales taking place, one with Nate and his team taking care of family business—killing and then the one of him and Syd and their erotic romance that has spankings, BDSM elements, and explicit sex scenes. Syd is very confused by her feelings for Nate but when she is attacked for the second time by another man and Nate comes to her rescue, his level of anger and violence scares her.
“I didn’t want to leave, but I can’t stay. I can’t take more. He’s eating me alive. He awakens something in me I can’t put words to. He frightens me and makes me feel safe at the same time. I can’t do it. No matter what I do, I’ll lose. Either I cut him out and lose him, or I say, and lose myself. I don’t know what Nathan is, or does, but he’s no normal business man. He’s dangerous, dark, and I don’t want to know. I don’t want to see him ever again.”
Syd returned to Miami, a different woman that went on vacation. She is haunted by Nate and what she witnessed and trying to pull her life back together. What will she do when after several months Nate shows back up? Will she give him a second chance?
I like Nathan's character (hero) in this book. He's an enigma to Miss Lewis (heroine) and she can't explain the pull she's feeling towards him and she's somewhat scared of this new feelings because she's used to her normal and Nathan is definitely pushing her boundaries.
Nathan is no saint - which I loved, by the way - and I just loove it more when he can't just stop thinking about the heroine, that's she's affecting him so much.
I just wished that there wasn't much hot and cold treatment from the heroine, albeit that's understandable but pet peeves, you know? I just felt that it dragged on for a while that I just started feeling frustrated along with the hero though I think it's a good sign that I'm relating to the hero's dilemma.
I also felt like the hero went too soft (just to the heroine) near the end of the book when I was still reading but looking back now, that's also kinda him. Like it's just his own personality without the dark side of him looming over his head and I do appreciate his efforts for the heroine! Alphamallow for sure!
I definitely recommend this book if you want to try this author. I believe this is her book baby and that her books tend to go darker as the series progresses. This book seem like a perfect series starter and I'm just so excited - as well as nervous - to read the next books in this series!
