The best part is probably the numerous sex scenes where Julian gropes her, displays her, sucks on her body parts and pleasures her with oral sex. She resists, but then she can't resist. Most sex scenes were short with not much emotion. A small percentage of the scenes had Julian entering her. Heaven never did anything oral to Julian. The turn-on is probably the caveman who's obsessed with seeing her pleasured. He does sexual things to her in public. He demands she wear no underwear in public. There is a small amount of bondage, spanking, and sex toys. Other than that, it's vanilla sex.
Heaven and Julian are extremely attractive brilliant tough lawyers. Heaven wears dumpy clothes to hide and avoid her sexuality. She is a virgin. Julian has sex with multiple women per week, frequently during office hours. He desires sex constantly and has no desire to deprive himself. As he falls for Heaven, Julian is possessive and controlling. In real life he would be an abusive spouse with stds. But we're not doing that here in our fiction. Instead the author is enhancing his sexuality caveman style.
The story was ok, but the bad guy suspense part was not well thought out. (I'm calling the bad guy BG, because I don't want to say whether BG was male or female.) BG was able to do too many things that were hard to believe. BG broke into places regardless of security systems and cameras. BG was a better computer hacker than the super hacker hired by the private detective. BG entered a house with several people armed and wary. Then BG attacked and tied up each person without alerting others. BG did too many things too easily and too convenient for the plot. They were like events from an outline - no depth or showing BG's actions or thoughts and no showing how BG could accomplish these feats of brilliance and luck.
According to one reviewer, the book was re-edited in August, 2012. Several reviews dated before August complained about a huge number of errors. I must have read the later version because I only noticed occasional errors - missing words or wrong words, things a spell-checker would miss.
It's 737 pages, about twice the length of a typical book.
Narrative mode: 3rd person. Kindle count story length: 12,034 (843 KB). Swearing language: strong, but rarely used. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: more than 27. Setting: current day New York City. Copyright: 2012. Genre: erotic contemporary romance.
Heaven Deville is our heroine. She is a "grab a man by the balls and squeeze" female. She was raised in a brothel and pretty much feared anything to do with sex and male attention due to a few situations she found herself in as a child (no rape triggers).
That fear of men pretty much grew into bitterness and hatred.
Then she meets good ol' Julian - her son's boss and fellow lawyer.
They are at each other's throat until Heaven let's her need for success get her into a predicament that Julian - the king of male slut-ness and all things debauchery - plans to use to his advantage. The sex, the story - all exceptional in my opinion.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it was a little OTT with the cheesiness factor. For example - how beautiful Heaven was when she took off her glasses and baggy clothes, how exceptionally brilliant everyone thought she was, how gloriously good looking all things living thought Julian was, how the whole brothel scenario with all of it's vigilantly (but with matching spandex and guns) ho's and her pimp of a mom. I mean, it all worked in the end, but where those moments, when these things were continuously brought up, just made your eyes roll with silliness.
Again, overall, very good read. Total OTT Alpha, great heroine and very entertaining story line.
There was several things I did enjoy about this book. The h, Heaven, was a strong, intelligent, and successful woman, but was not so hard nosed that it made her obnoxious. I liked the fact that she was a virgin. The H, Julian, was more of an "unfinished hero" in this book. The book portray's his biggest flaw, and it was s*x, as he was definately uncontrolled in that area. It would have been nice is Julian would have been a little more mature, and more Alpha. I did like the fact that after he and Heaven got together, even though it was not in the usual way to start a relationship, that he did not cheat on her. There was one instance that I thought maybe it was referring to it, but I read from the author's blog that he did not. It seems that once he got together with Heaven, that his M O on how he operated with his previous women began to change. I was afraid at first that he would share Heaven with his usual friends, but was happy that he let them know right off "not this one". All his friends knew that he was different with Heaven, even though he did not realize it right off. Julian was possessive and jealous of Heaven, which I enjoy in a story.
I didn't feel alot of angst, or OTT emotional involvment with the H and h, but I did enjoy the book. I did like that it was a longer novel, and I didn't have to pay by the chapter to get the whole story.
There was lot's of descriptive and steamy action between the H and h, and there is a HEA. This book is not YA and would be for the Adult group of readers.
