Powerful CEO, Garrett Emerson’s, life and corporation are built on a foundation of risk taking and top secret priorities. He works hard, but plays even harder. When tragedy strikes, the charismatic and sexy billionaire takes the gamble of his life by bringing a beautiful consultant into his inner sanctum, exposing her to his exclusive society of extreme athletes who are adventurous both in business and pleasure. Inexplicably drawn to the intriguing woman, Garrett teaches her to face her fears, bringing them both to new levels of ecstasy.Selby Reynolds, a high profile technology specialist, reluctantly accepts an engagement at Emerson Industries. Discovering secrets and uncovering clues to a murder, she’s swept into Garrett's dangerous but seductive life of luxury. Captivated by the world renowned capitalist and adventurer, she’s convinced he could crush her heart. As he pushes her sexual limits and their erotic play intensifies, Selby finds it impossible to resist the one man who turns her darkest fantasies into a reality.
When Selby’s life is threatened by a killer, carnal lessons of trust are put to the test, forcing them to choose who is friend and who is foe. Can Selby give her heart to a man who revels in the excitement of flirting with death? Will they prevail against an enemy who threatens to tear apart Garrett’s world, including the fragile connection with the woman he seeks to claim as his own?
Garrett Emerson is an adrenaline junkie but it comes with some risk. There’s no mistaking that he likes to dominate things as well. Selby Reynolds is very upset with her boss. She has an interesting side job that the reader will be interested to see how it all plays out. Lars’ a man who knows them both and certainly has Garrett’s number. As the series progresses, it will be interesting to see what the author has in store for him.
It’s a book that will push your level of comfort. Are you willing to expand your horizons? How about getting creative with your partner? Or maybe explore things like putting a little spice in your sex life. But like anything good, you don’t want to rush anything and that includes your reading speed. If you try to speed-read you may find that you’re missing something.
There’s a function that Selby attends that the heat switch gets turned up to high. So be careful that you don’t burn your fingers or end up scorching your eyebrows. It’s not a book that’s all about the sex either. We get a little mystery, a little suspense, and even some adventure. The reader may find that it’s a story that is hard to put down. It may also have you wanting to expand your own boundaries.
Yes, you could say that this book is a stand-along but don’t you want to learn more about the club and its members? This book is a great start but there’s a scene where Selby attends a function and that just may change your mind about not finishing the series. The author has written a prequel titled Solstice Burn that also involves members of the club. You may realize that by the time you’ve read the very last word, you’ve become a fan and want to check out other books that she has written.
