I found the idea of the hero being a male escort to be totally new and refreshing. Personally, it was the first time I read a romance with this premise and the reason I bought it, in the first place. I was NOT disappointed. Alex’s story is a roller-coaster of emotions, toe-curling sex scenes, and non-stop action. I literally couldn’t put my Kindle down because every time I was about to do it, a new development in the story line reeled me in and I had to keep reading. I’m a sucker for multiple POVs, when well executed, and Sybil does a brilliant job. She uses first person alternating POVs for Olivia and Alex, which puts the reader inside their minds and that’s just perfect for this kind of fast-paced story. Giving the main characters their own voices is one of the safest ways to assure readers won’t miss on anything. Lastly, I found fascinating the play of words in the title because this book is as much about ‘trust’ as it is about ‘thrust’ and that is as much as I will say. “No spoilers, sweetie,” is my main rule when reviewing a book.
Sybil not only skillfully creates realistic characters, but subtly takes the reader on a journey through their psyche that is unique and profound. She gradually exposes new layers of their motivations, triggers, and vulnerabilities. Amazing. In Olivia and Alex, you’ll find believable and relatable characters and you’ll want to stay with them for far more time than the intense weekend this book covers. After all, it’s impossible not to fall for a guy who will carry an injured Golden Retriever up 20 floors of stairs almost without breaking a sweat. And this is just one example I can include in a review, because most of the others are inappropriate for young audiences, if you get my meaning. The supporting characters - may favorites being Merry, Sparks and Charlie - almost steal the spotlight. Plus, characters from other books by Sybil make brief cameo appearances. Delightful.
Here are some of my favorite quotes (the others I can’t post on here):
“Needed to lie right here and tell myself he was bad for me until I believed”.
“This woman was every fantasy I never knew I had”.
“I’m not going to date you, Olivia Toussaint. I’m going to own you.”
“I owned her. Because she owned me.”
I recommend “Thrust” to readers seeking a highly well-written, scorching-hot story, with depth and feeling. A warning, though: Alex will own you and you’ll love every second of it.
When Alex Vega (AKA Alexander Vega, Vegas) got out of the USMC he had some unresolved issues and turned to women to combat those issues. Found out it could be profitable, but something was missing. Olivia Toussaint was drowning in unresolved issues, and didn't need any more she was already in over her head with a nonprofit charity she was trying to get off the ground.
Too often you see the guy meets girl, they both fall fast, there is some issue that gets in the way they resolve it and live happily ever after... Let's be realistic, we read these books for that HEA, but it's the getting there that makes or breaks a book. I enjoyed the feistiness of the h and the arrogance of the H it made for some interesting events.
The book picks up very quickly and was a fast read, only took me a couple hours. I really enjoyed the book and just bought Talon, another book by this author that you meet in the book. Look forward to reading more!!
