There were times in the beginning when Elena frustrated me, especially when she would defend Dominic's actions, but I guess that was understandable given her years of conditioning. He really had brainwashed into believing that their relationship was the way it should be between husband and wife. Ashton was so incredibly sweet and caring towards her. He was so patient while trying to open her eyes to the situation and make her realize that she was worth so much more than she realized. Their relationship was a slow building one, which I appreciated. It would have been unrealistic for Elena to fall in love instantly, given her situation with her husband. The development of her and Ashton's relationship was sweet and endearing. He not only helps her reclaim her courage and voice, he helps her realize her full potential and follow her dreams. The sex scenes were super hot and intensified as their relationship grew. Ashton is very creative in the bedroom and slowly exposes Elena to his methods, which she finds she enjoys as much as he does.Read more ›
The sex scenes were the same. Insert tab A into slot B, sometimes with "kink".
During the climax of the story, there is no build up of tension whatsoever. It is treated as something so mundane that it is easily skipped over.
Also, nobody refers to Colorado as "off-Broadway" (and forget about going into an audition cold after 5 years of not singing and nailing a Sondheim song and getting the lead? Really? Really? ).
I loved Ashton. He may be a loan shark, but he also owns several restaurants and was a great man. He cares for Elena immediately and did everything he could to teach her how beautiful she was and show her the ways a woman should be treated. Poor Elena had been brainwashed by her husband and thought everything she did should be for him. What's sad is that you know there are really relationships that exist like that.
This was a standalone story where Elena slowly learns about herself and what she's worth. It was a story about finding love where you least expect it and for Elena about second chances. It's told from dual POVs and has a happy ending.
This is the first book by this author that I've read. I'll read another one, but if there isn't any substance in that book, then I'll know it's just something I don't care for.
Again, I really wanted to like it, but it just didn't fill me up the way I had hoped it would. Sorry.
Ms Brooke has written a story that shows how bad it can get with verbal and emotional abuse. The fact that there were people who were able to help this woman return and heal is what more people deserve.
Great story about abuse and finding out what you really want to do with your life.

I like mafia type romances and this one was interesting, a different take. You have the family that has it's 'business' and is also protective of their women. Read morePublished 1 month ago by loulouc
It started out great. I was disgusted with Dominic from the start. Elena was great as well as Ashton.
My biggest problem was were the storyline went. Read more
