Later he also tells her, "You're mine- all mine. Nobody else gets to touch you and you belong to me, body and soul. Outside of bed- you want something- you'll have it. Inside this bedroom- or anywhere else sex is involved- I say 'jump' and your pretty little lips need to beg me to tell you 'how high.' Got that?" And man, did this hit all my hot spots. It's not PC and it's not for every woman/reader, but almost everything he said got to me, and in a very good way. I can't tell you how many times I was highlighting quotes. They were all so aggressively male and just too dayum hot not to bookmark.
As for the heroine, she is young (24, and eight years younger than Marco). She's new in town, unemployed and looking for work. She's low on funds and is making do on her cousin's couch. I agree that she's the sweet and kind of innocent type, easily pliable where a ruthless, somewhat older and way more experienced man like Marco is concerned. But all these factors are what allows Marco to take advantage of Natalie and this situation. She hits the back of Marco's car while driving her cousin's car, on which the insurance has lapsed, and it's Marco's brilliant plan to use Natalie as domestic help in order to make restitution to him. But you know what kind of pay-back he really wants. He's intimidating, ruthless and determined to get his way.
There is very much this sexy feeling of coercion for me with this situation: do this and I won't do that. Clean my house, etc., and I won't sue you for damages. So, here you have Natalie pretty much at his beck and call, in his home and under his thumb. The sex is very hot, really arousing, lots of build-up and sexual tension with that man about to lose his cool at any given moment. He can be snarky and has a temper, too, and one point, he even chases Natalie to her bedroom after she calls him a deserved name and throws a pill bottle at him. He chases after her and is pounding on the door for her to open that door right THIS minute. I loved that scene.
My only quibbles: when Chapter 10 starts eight months later, this jarred me out of the afterglow of the previous scene, and also the epilogue. I like that the epilogue was many years down the line, but I must admit I wanted a bit more there. It needed a bit more attention or depth there for me personally. But really, I thought Marco's Redemption was a super-sexy read with one over-the-top hot alpha male hero, an alpha who's so territorial that he practically wants to keep the heroine under lock and key, and probably, barefoot and pregnant as well. I loved Marco, loved the dirty talk, loved the sexual tension, loved him being in control and so dominating in the bedroom and out. A super-fine, caveman alpha.
Marco is the most alpha male possesive jerky super sexy insatable guy i've ever had the privilege to read about. He is possessive to the extream... and I love it. He is rich, sexy, goes after what he wants.. but --- Marco, deep deep down, does have a heart. Its just a very controlling heart.
Natalie.. she sweet, un-jaded and seriously short on money. She's petite and beautiful.. and when Marco first lays eyes on her he has the uncontrolable need to protect AND possess her.
They meet when Natalie accidently rear ends his very expensive car on the interstate.. she of course is driving a beat up un-insured hooptie. She has no way to pay him for the damages.. so he convinces her to move in with him and be his housekeeper while she works off the cost of the repairs.. Its all blazing chemistry and combustion from there.
Marco is the perfect book man for me.. so sexy and jerky and possessive.. I loved every minute of it. Whats even BETTER.. is there was no angst at all in this book...the chemistry was there from the beginning, they did something about it, they kept at it, they fell for each other, they admitted it , and you get your HEA. All of that and plus you get the man that would do anything to possess you and keep you happy and satisfied.
I will be re-reading this one again very soon. I'm just now done and I miss Marco already...
ANd yes there's lots of great tension and heat between the two culminating with them finally fooling around in his car on the way to a party....sizzling and very true to their characters. And after that....not a heck of a lot. I was astounded! That night when they got home we should have gotten a super hot bedroom scene, "finally", etc. But no. Suddenly we read "the next day" and I'm thinking, what happened to the evening??? If you are going to write a book with this subject matter and this type of guy, you cannot all of a sudden get discreet. I found this ridiculous!! (we get a couple other love scenes, but for the most part, the minute they get together, we don't see much, weeks and months go by we are told-- are you kidding me??) My point here is that from the first he understands that she is fresh and sweet and not very experienced. Once again the author is setting this up beautifully. We should be getting love scenes that bring both characters some change and growth here with themselves and connecting to each other. BUT NO! ???
THen Marco keeps spouting the usual Alpha stuff which are now cliches: You are mine, mine mine, bla bla bla. THere ceased to be an edge to him, suddenly he becomes a one note cutout. And yes he is drawn to her and shocks himself by falling in love with her. BUt we are told this, TOLD this, in his inner monologues. Sorry, I wanted to see them experience it. Not hear about it! Tedious and disappointing. I did like when he gives her the diamond jewelry, he wants to show her affection but is so uptight about it, but this moment sort of went nowhere as well. It's as if we finally get to the good part and the author backs away and rushes us to conclusion. The only big plot point is that he tracks her using gps in her cell phone and she switches out the sim card to trick him. OOOOOOHHHHH! I'm on the edge of my seat here.
As for other characters: I really thought there would be some sort of confrontation with her and her mother's boyfriend with Marco, etc. but no. We are introduced to a jealous, crabby ex-girlfriend, (opportunity!) but she fades away, then a couple that Marco used to share and swing with, but their effect on the plot is superficial at best(???!!) Total shame. Oh yes, Plot. There is none. Boy meets girl. BOy gets girl. Boy is jealous or something. End of story. Basically. WHY??? The author is a good writer that is why this makes this book a double disappointment!!! She sets up and goes nowhere with it. And I felt utterly cheated.
If you are interested in this sort of story with these sort of characters a much better and satisfying read and a hell of a ride is "Insufferable Proximity" by Z. Stefani. Read that! Sorry. (or just reread 50 shades)
