My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Okay, I was already aware of the author's other popular series and when I came across this one I didn't hesitate to try it out. Now, I am giving this a four star rating but there are some things that prevented it from getting a five star rating.
Like a lot of romance readers, I love a take charge alpha male lead and the author skillfully delivers with Dominic and he has that personality that leaps off the page that had me salivating. Other than knowing he was rich, secretive and used to getting his way, nothing else is really learned about this character. Meaning, I want to really, really, REALLY know this character's background. I want to know what makes him tick and I feel that it wasn't given (at least not fully). Maybe, I am a spoiled reader and I want all my candy at once. What Dominic's character has proven is that he has one hell of a heart. Now, to the heroine (Avery) who was good but didn't hold my attention as much as the male lead did. Readers will discover this portion of the series mainly is about Avery and whatever secret she is harboring. I just wanted her secrets to have a bigger role in how the story played out. Just wanted the element of danger or additional angst. Both characters worked because she was the happy recipient of Nick's attention.
This is an erotic novel and it's truly jammed packed with our lead characters getting it in but that alone can't carry a story. Though these scenes are fun to read sometimes it just over shadows the story that is being told. Don't get me wrong.I definitely appreciate Nick but there has to be balance. For sheer steaminess of this read it was hard to put down.
