Two: Read the prologue. And pay attention!
Three: Keep one hand free to…um…fan yourself.
“Being naked is not terrifying for me…. It’s the intimacy that is harder for me to process.”
Brynne Bennett is a beautiful American studying in London, leaving her past in San Francisco.
Ethan Blackstone is *the* alpha (with all his yummy hotness) male, running his own international security firm.
Electricity from the start! Ethan is immediately attracted to Brynne when he sees a portrait of her—naked. He introduces himself at the art show, and she’s immediately transfixed by him.
The duality of each character grows as Brynne and Ethan’s undeniable connection is building. Brynne is normally careful and closed off, and this has worked for her life until she meets Ethan. Especially in the throes of passion, Brynne becomes wild and unrestrained. With Brynne, Ethan can be affectionate and loving—in public. As soon as they’re behind closed doors, his strength, dominance, and sexuality possess and consume Brynne.
Both have secrets. And, both must take a leap of faith to find love with one another.
“I could forgive Ethan just about anything…. And this was my very great mistake.”
Initially, I thought the characters’ backgrounds and relationships were lacking; things were moving too fast for me, as the reader, to feel attached to them. I quickly discovered that I was mistaken as Brynne and Ethan’s connection grew and came faster and faster. I am hooked! I want to know more about Brynne’s past. And, I need more Ethan. (Fun fact: The author’s muse for Ethan is British model David Gandy. The author did a phenomenal job of describing Ethan, so much so, that I pictured Gandy as Ethan throughout the book *before* I knew Gandy was her muse.) I even enjoyed the secondary characters; more specifically, I would love to have a Benny Clarkson in my life, and I am hope-hope-hoping to read more about Neil McManus, who seems just as delectable as Ethan.
“You soothe me, baby…. You are my ray of light…”
