Review


This book is suited for adult readers over the age of 18.  There are some graphic scenes in the book. 

The book follows Nicole who is an investigative journalist who just had a romance over Christmas with a longtime friend Mark.   The story picks up quickly with Nicole preparing for an interview.  The story also moves along quickly since it is so short so it is easy to just keep reading and not take a break.

I think the book is written very well for a romance novel.  The story is easy to follow and you can see a lot of emotions from the characters even with the book just starts out.  Nicole is working on keeping herself in check around Mark and trying to figure out what is going on.  This book is part of a larger series that I will need to continue to read since it leaves you off on a cliffhanger and you want to know more about Nicole and Mark's relationship. 

I think there could be some more descriptive language used for the scenes since I felt the story was moving along so quickly maybe more details could slow it down and let the reader have a breathing moment in between chapters.

This book is a quick read that can easily be read in one sitting.   I would suggest this is a nighttime read right before bed.  It does have some sexual language, but it is not that intense.   

I was given a copy of this book from Bibliophiles Unplugged Blog Tours for an honest review.  This did not affect my opinion of this book.

Excerpt

They shake hands, though Mark's gaze lingers on me. Or, more accurately, on my cleavage.

They're speaking, but I'm ignoring him so completely the words don't even register. I can almost feel the air crackling from his annoyance at this. But he ignored all my calls, so I have nothing to say to him anymore.

"And how are you, Nicole?" he asks, and it takes my mind a few seconds to decipher the words.

"Have we met?" I shoot back, my own anger crackling now. He's seriously gonna pretend he's not been dodging my calls? Well, we'll see about that.

His cocky grin is replaced by a look of dumb confusion. Serves him right.

"If you'll excuse me," I say and stand up. "I have to go freshen up."

My legs are jelly over what just happened, so I don't know how I get to the bathroom without falling. For the whole way, I can feel Mark's gaze on me, piercing me like a thousand daggers.

But I'm done pining over him. Or wishing we could ever share something more than a troubled past.

The bathroom is huge, bigger than my whole apartment, and it's stifling hot inside. Though maybe I only feel like that because I just saw Mark, the man I've been lusting over for the last three weeks. And I ignored him. Pretended I didn’t know him. What was I thinking?

I'm about to splash some cold water over my face, but remember my elaborate makeup just in time.

When I straighten up from bending over the sink, Mark's standing right behind me, his eyes piercing me through the mirror.

"Didn't recognize me back there, huh?" he growls more than says, and it's enough to make my panties wet. Or maybe that's because he's leaning against me, his hard, muscular body pressed into my back. Even though I’m wearing stilettos, he towers over me.
