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".


Clichéd sentiments of love are not my thing. Instead, I give into raw temptation and thrive on the physical aspects of what men have to offer. Unemotional, carnal connections are what I live for, and they seem to keep me in a blissfully naïve state.

I’ve gone years with a different man in a different bed each night, but one glance from a ruminating stranger as he lifts my panties to his nose narrows my attraction from multiple men to only one.

I’m not entirely sure how to process the thoughts and passions battling in my mind until he gives me no other choice…until I’m thrust into an unstable emotional high that I cannot seem to resist.

His objective is to break me in and savor me as if I’m his favorite bottle of single malt whiskey.

I’m well aware of my sensual dependencies. He’s unaware that his still exist.

My Thoughts:

Hadley Rye had a very tough childhood.  Her social graces seem to be a little skewed which probably goes back to when she was younger.  Waylon “Wade” Brass seems to be a hard man that thinks of women as a vessel.  It’s interesting to watch him change after he meets Hadley.

This was a story that I wasn’t too sure about when I first met Hadley.  She seemed to think about sex a little differently which in a way showed how she felt about herself.  I also wasn’t too sure about Wade either.  He seemed a little egotistical to me.  And don’t get me started on how he treated women.  But as I started to get into the story things just seemed to change for me.  I wanted to see these two characters change.  I wanted to see Hadley feel better about herself.  You have to give praise to an author who can create such complex characters that have you feeling some strong emotions.

Make sure to keep your eyes open for the library.  It’s very interesting and drinks are allowed.  So make sure to have your alcoholic, or non-alcoholic, beverage of choice handy.  I will need to get on the computer and do a search.  If there’s actually one out there, what better place to reread this story.  It would add a different dimension to the story and bring a better understanding of Wade and his business.

It’s a story where both people seem to blossom into something that the other person needs.  You may not have had the best childhood but you can’t let it define your adulthood.  Sometimes it just takes meeting that special someone to see past the flaws and willing to do anything to make you happy.  I enjoyed the ending because it left me smiling but it also left me wanting to see more from this author.  It will be interesting to see how the author does with the next book in this series.
