Gavin is a gorgeous, billionaire playboy with a serious death wish. He has not forgiven himself for what he feels was his part in the accident that killed his father. Because of that, he constantly engages in death defying activities and reckless behavior around the world, leaving his family constantly fearing for his safety.
Gavin happens to be home in Seattle recuperating from injuries sustained from one of those activities when he runs into Terri at Alannah & Trenton’s condo. He is immediately attracted to Terri and starts a full press pursuit of her.
Terri is dealing with her own issues from a shaky past and the last type of guy she wants to get involved with is a rich, persistent, alpha male like Gavin.
Of course, neither of them can deny their strong chemistry and ultimately end up in what they think will be a casual fling.
I love that although Gavin is strong willed and spoiled, not to mention adamantly against being in a committed relationship, he willingly embraces the love he feels for Terri and treats her like a queen from the start.
Terri at first appears to be difficult and unwilling to be cared for but we soon learn and can understand the reasons behind her trepidation.
This story has everything. A beautiful romance, sexy love scenes, suspense, humor and an emotional roller coaster that you don't mind taking a ride on.
It was also wonderful to have Trenton and Alannah as the supporting players.
Once again I will be not-so-patiently waiting on the next installment in this series. We haven't heard much from Xavier yet but something tells me he might be the most intriguing Johnson of them all.
Everything was perfect. Then their breakup happened. I was shocked and angered at Gavin's treatment of Terri. Here we had a man who claimed to love this woman, but when push came to shove, he callously broke ties with her without giving her a chance to explain, especially when he knew from their time together that she had suffered something traumatic in her past. It was bizarre that his "love" for her all of a sudden turned into accusations and indignation. The reconciliation was even more irritating. Terri, who was portrayed as a very strong, independent Black woman, accepted the proposal of a man who treated her in such a way, even resorting to bullying her into marrying him upon finding out she was pregnant. "Johnson men don't have baby mamas" has to have been the most annoying line in the entire book to me. I couldn't believe she let Gavin have sexual access to her so easily after such treatment, all because he gives her oral after seeing her naked again after an accident in the bathroom. I understand love makes us fools, but come on! She just lets him off the hook! Later on in the book, the pretentiousness of their wealth began to grate. The details paid to picking only the best/rarest fibers for their babies and spending upwards of $25,000 on a single book , etc came off as snooty, but maybe I was still annoyed by the whole break up/make up situation. We get it. They're rich. The ex-boyfriend just kind of came out of nowhere and entered into their home easily, as if they had no security whatsoever with all that money they flaunt. He was dealt with adequately. Flash back to the couple, and you never really hear Gavin explain to Terri why he treated her like that, all the while claiming he loved her. He talks about it to someone else, but what good is that? So anyway, don't get me wrong. The story was good, but uncharacteristic for this author in the inattention to details. From a writing standpoint, it's not my favorite. I'm still a fervent fan of Ms. Diamond's, but I look forward to moving on to her other stories. Maybe Xavier's will be better. So far, my favorite couple is Trenton and Allanah.
