Thankfully, it is not months and months until the next book, although 6 weeks seems almost too much.
Great job, as usual, Ella!!
Since this book is a little tamer than Ella's others, it is my hope that readers will soak up this book and read her other excellent works.
Can't wait for book 2 in July. Thank you for not making us wait so long, Ella!
I've read other Ella Dominguez books and she never fails to draw me into the story with flawless writing, deep and complex characters, not to mention a little swat-n-kiss! You can expect a spunky female and alpha male in this sizzling hot novel.
Theirs is a complex story beginning on quite a slow note. Soon the pace picks up intriguingly well as one reads on. Intense attraction runs riot when they first set eyes on each other and don’t think for one moment that steam doesn’t rise from the pages because it does just that! What Logan Evans has in mind I didn’t like at all though. Since his was a business proposition of sorts with tentatively written clauses in it, not including emotions on a personal level would be cause for much confusion. It’s obvious that his experience in worldly ways was of abundance; thus, my wish for him to bend the rules a tad in his ‘ulterior’ plan and see how he was going to deal with his innermost thoughts had me stuck to the pages. A master in his field of work and horrendously gorgeous, Logan’s blindsided by her beauty, naivety and enthusiastic professionalism. The one thing that swayed my opinion of him was his absolute trust in her regarding his baby. His baby being a project of design.
Chloe Stephens abiding to Logan’s persuasive ways without taking into consideration the outcome, concerned me. Nevertheless, it would be what it would be regardless of the course of events or my feelings. That mentioned, she doesn’t need much convincing as her desires are controlled with the precision of Swiss watch! Yeah, by now you must have noticed that Logan has a domineering streak! Chloe is my kind of gal. In spite of the fact that I questioned whether she was mature enough to change her lifestyle, I shouldn’t have doubted her for a moment. She takes the bull by the horns and dives into the unknown with gusto. There were times while reading I tried to warn her out loud since I felt that Logan’s past hindered him from investing in their relationship on an emotional basis. I still think Logan is a so and so but I couldn’t help but love his endearing French name for her and then the ending; my oh my, roll on book two!
Ahem, but what is this story really about you may ask! Here, I have to mention the synopsis. Ms Dominguez has gone to a lot of trouble to write a perfect one which can be the bane for many authors. Therefore I’m not going to let on but I will say this… original, descriptive and explicitly narrated scenes abound. Bravo to you Ms Dominguez.
She may have been younger and a but naïve, but she was wise and mature in all the ways of how she handled Logan's constant push and pull. I heart broke for her hurt emotions. And I hurt for Logan. Wanting to badly to have Chloe but being to scared to accept it.
I can't tell you how much I LOVED these characters. They were funny and adorable and sexy and most of all...REAL.
The story was erotic without being over the top. It was funny and cute in the right places and wonderfully written. I can't wait for the second part of their story.
That is my favorite line from the book.
Now this is the story of two people who are extremely attracted to each other in every way possible. But the question is, is that strong attraction enough? They have both been hurt in their past which makes each guarded.
Chloe is a young, naive, beautiful woman. Logan is experienced, sexy and what else controlling of course. Theirs is a story of passion and dedication.
This first installment of the 'House of Evens' definitely leaves you panting for the next installment.
The authors style of writing catches you and makes you want to be the characters in the story. I wanted to go to California and see the places they go. This book didn't start out quick, it took some getting into but once you get into it you will be sad that it ends.
