From page one Ms. O'Brien grabs your attention. She opens the novel within the thoughts of Mr. Thorne - "sadistic prick" as he calls himself - a man who has secrets, a man who is dark, and dangerous, and should be off limits to the innocent and naive Miss Rose.
The relationship between Victoria and Thorne is somewhat forbidden, intense, and one that he never intended, nor wanted, to have. He was used to control, to being in charge, and yet with Victoria we see him more "human" than he admits he is. More than he allows others to see him. He is a bag of contradictions, though; both hard and strong, yet we see glimpses of insecurity.
Also revealed to the reader are clues, as one reviewer mentioned, into his past; what makes him behave the way he does, treat people the way he does. And Victoria, although submissive in nature, is stronger than she at first appears, and is very intelligent. She is the perfect counter to his hardened nature.
The intimate scenes are a beautifully written piece of art in this erotic story, and left me breathless. The chemistry between the two characters is off the charts hot. Pain and pleasure, desperation and desire, seduction and submission - I could go on, but you really should read it for yourself. If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. As a matter-of-fact: I do!
The twist at the end will leave you begging for book 2, which I will definitely be picking up as soon as Ms. O'Brien releases it.
This is one story that I invested more than just money in...I invested my emotions as well. Not something I can often say.
Beautiful job, Ms. O'Brien. I am so thankful to have read this book and I cannot wait for book 2.
This authors characters 'Thorne' and Victoria reached up from the words and pulled right in to their world. Thorne is one of the best book heroes I've found in a long time. Here is a man so convinced he's a monster that he chooses to live like he thinks he deserves, the dark secrets of his past are slowly consuming him. But he chooses to ignore the warning signs that he is literally being devoured by them - and then comes his Rose.
Victoria is an innocent drawn into the darkness that is Thorne - she is one of the strongest women I've seen in a book in quite awhile,yet her very innocence could be her destruction - or his.
I can't wait for the next book - I must learn all of their secrets.
When he meets shy young waitress Victoria in a local coffee shop, he's intrigued enough to invest time and effort to lure her into being his next assistant. Victoria is completely inexperienced and very attracted to William. But will she agree to his dark demands?
Plus, it seems they both have something to hide.
This book is dark and sexy, with intriguing characters and plenty of hot passion. Highly recommended!
He expects to be finished with her in three months. That’s how long his conquests usually last - but Victoria is about to throw a curve ball into the equation. She’s an innocent.
What happens when a self-confessed sadist clashes with an innocent? Read on to find out!
Heat rating: OFF THE SCALE. Loved it.
