Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


The USA Today bestselling author of the Club Sin novels kicks off a deeply sensual new series by introducing readers to Micah, a man who takes what he wants—until he meets the one woman he needs.

Real estate mogul Micah Holt exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life. He keeps his dark side hidden away from the press, who will chase down any hint of scandal. He’s always in command of his world, careful to expose his closely guarded secrets only to those he knows he can trust. Then Allie Bennett shakes his legendary discipline. She’s beautiful, pure, untainted. But is Micah willing to sacrifice her innocence for his own selfish obsessions?

When that sexy smile makes her body burn, Allie tries with all her might to ignore it. For one thing, Micah’s her new boss. For another, he’s as complicated as he is devastatingly handsome. Still, Allie can only fight so much before she gives in to his dangerous games. She knows he’s got dark secrets. But when she discovers the true depth of his pain, Allie must decide how far she’s willing to go to light the way for love.

My Thoughts:

Allison “Allie” Parker has one of the toughest jobs.  Micah Holt is a man with two jobs and one feeds his passion.  He’s a man that knows what he wants almost from the beginning but someone isn’t cooperating.  I love a woman who makes the man work for her attention.

You will find that once you meet Micah, you will not want to stop reading – thank goodness for holidays and weekends.  Maybe you’ve read this author’s work before.  Maybe you are aware of her Club Sin Series.  She has started this new series off with a bang.  I almost gave this a 5 star review but I want to wait and see what else this author has in store for this series.

One thing that surprised me was that we didn’t see too much of the inside of Micah’s other business but maybe that will come later in the series.  Even though I tagged this as a BDSM, this book was pretty tame in that department but she does include some at the very end.  That’s not to say that the sex wasn’t hot or that our couple didn’t light up the pages.  It could be that Ms. Kennedy is building our anticipation, which is the perfect way to look forward to reading this series.

Our author gives us a man who may be strong in business but he has past insecurities that never seem to go away.  At times they stay hidden until he finds the right woman who will see beyond his frailties.  But his woman isn’t without her own insecurities.  She also has a brother that she starts to discover some of his secrets.  And I think this is what will lead us into our next book in the series.  I know I’m looking forward to it.

Author Bio

When she’s not plugging away at a new story, she’s either hiking, canoeing, relaxing around a campfire, or obsessing over Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones, or Outlander. Stacey lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband (who puts any of the heroes in her books to shame), their two young children, and her third baby: a mini labradoodle named Jax.
