When she's left to make it on her own, she's broken. Broken down from the way she's been treated, broken for all the pain that she's endured. She doesn't believe in happily ever after, heck she doesn't believe in love. She doesn't feel that she's worthy, deserves it.
When she first meets Sebastian Payne, she's furious. She finds out that the man behind the House of Payne is freaking gorgeous but it doesn't stop her verbal vomit. What does stop her though is 2 little words.
Seeing Payne bring Becks out of her cocoon to see what's right there in front of her is heart pounding, exhilarating, made me go awww, he's so sweet. And goodness gracious he is alpha, protective, loving and totally swoon worthy.
I did say protective right? Thankfully Scout, his assistant, lives up to her nickname. Totally needed it for what's about to go down. When all the secrets and heartbreak are about to happen Scout has it covered.
I absolutely love this series!
♦️BOOK: #1, HOUSE OF PAYNE series, full length. Can be read as a Standalone.
♦️WRITING: Really great - witty, natural dialogue. Dual, alternating POV
♦️HERO: Sebastian Payne, or Payne--Owner of House of Payne, the premiere body art gallery where hollywood’s A-listers, european royalty, music moguls and professional athletes come to Payne for ink. Wealthy, sophisticated, well dressed, charming, down-to-earth, enjoys luxury and pampering. He's sweet, arrogant, straight-forward, determined, a savvy businessman, knows what he wants and gets it.
“I don’t swagger. I’m so naturally good at what I do, I don’t have to.”
♦️HEROINE: Rebecca “Becks” Delgado, 24--3D Artist. Tough, feisty, witty, smarta**, a nerd-girl in disguise. Damaged, lonely and alone, disowned and discarded by her family who blame her for her brother's death 4 yrs earlier and wished it was her that had died instead. Has hit rock-bottom and survived.
“I swear you’re never going to know what it is to be that lost again.” --H to the h
♦️WARNINGS: h attempted suicide 3 years prior to book bc of her horrific parents
♦️HEAT: Hot, 3.5/5 - 4 hot sex scenes including 69.
"She should have grabbed him by those yummy suspenders, dragged him into the nearest private space, and banged him so hard they’d have to exchange insurance information afterward."
--The h's witty, smarta** mouth...she's hilarious!
"...enough to make even a saint wish for more middle fingers."
--Payne is the perfect hero. He's just the right combo of all the good stuff! He even apologizes! Some good advice is given to the h...
"...pay attention to a man strong enough to apologize, as that one man was worth all the others who couldn’t get the words past their lips."
--From the moment Payne meets Becks, he wants her and only her. He's determined and will do whatever it takes to have her ALL of her.
“Going for the best is the only way to get what you want, Becks. That’s why I’m going after you.”
--Claire, the bff is totally hilarious and a really great friend to Becks!
--The matching tattoos that they get were very clever
--I loved their initial meeting and the banter between these two
--the 'I love you' scene was one of the best
--the epilogue! "she’d been blessed with a man she hadn’t even dared to dream existed."
♦️WHAT DID NOT WORK:
--that Becks didn't give Payne a little bit of a harder time for giving her the cold shoulder and avoiding her for days. He was feeling guilty and uncertain, but that wasn't a good enough excuse to do that to someone like her, she was crushed! I think he needed to grovel a little bit.
♦️EDITING: no significant errors found
♦️ENDING: HEA. Epilogue - very sweet, 5 1/2 years later. NO cliffhanger.
" “I won’t let you fall.” “News flash, Payne. Gravity is out of your purview.” Seriously, did he think he was immune to the laws of nature simply because he was Sebastian freaking Payne? Probably."
"Dear God, how was it possible for him to be so wonderful and so exasperating all at the same time? It had to be a special talent."
Totally safe all the way. Some small humorous references to a past hook up he had but nothing that caused any drama.. No other women at all. He was gone for Becks from day one. Beautiful amazing hero in every way. I am diving into book two now. Stacy.. There's a huge pressure out there to write all of these damaged A-hole heroes.. The ones who hurt the heroine over and over but miraculously change at the end. Romance doesn't have to hurt and heroes do not have to sleep around or lie just so they can change.. Why not be a good guy from the start? So please lady keep writing heroes who show what the meaning of romance and love stories really are. You'll find that there are so many women who really don't need all that angst that's just not romantic at all. So summing up Ms Gail, please don't lose that special love inside that breathes life into your men. We really need real heroes.
