“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”
The minute I saw Vincent Sorenson, I knew he was trouble. Billionaire. Bad boy. And dangerously sexy. He was everything I craved, and nothing I needed.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t just avoid him. The higher ups at my company decided they needed his business, and I was on the team to bring him in. Vincent Sorenson didn’t seem as interested in business as he was in me, but I knew that was a door better left unopened. If I got involved with him, it would only unearth the pain I spent years trying to bury.
I thought I had it under control, but I seriously underestimated Vincent’s seductive charm and silver-tongue. I would soon find out how delicious it would feel to let myself fall into this forbidden surrender.
“Mistake?” His brows furrowed.
“I wasn’t thinking clearly and you took advantage of it. We can still move on and pretend like it never happened, or I can transfer you to Richard—” My nails dug into the palms of my hands.
He let out a frustrated breath, shaking his head. “I’m not working with anyone else but you. I thought that was settled.”
“Look, I admitted I’m attracted to you, but we shouldn’t have acted on it. You’re a client for Christ’s sake. You caught me off guard and I was confused.” I tried to make it sound as convincing as I could, but he didn’t look like he was buying.
He stooped to pick up the paperwork and my work bag. As he walked over to me, I scrambled to my feet. My heels felt wobbly, and I took a step back, worried he was going to kiss me again.
He eyed me darkly, “Are you sleeping with anyone?”
He just wasn’t going to give up. “No, but I don’t—”
“Then there was no mistake. Stop apologizing, and stop denying what happened. We both wanted it.” His brows narrowed, his gaze was intense. It was clear we were both exasperated, but for very different reasons. “If you still think you’re confused, I’ll make you a bet: before this week is done, you’ll be touching yourself while thinking about me.”
Rating: 3 stars
I really liked this book, and i enjoyed the journey reading it. However, there were a few scenes that let me down (*spoiler* especially the ending!)This book was set within the corporate world, though not engrossed in it, there were hints and it was the base of the major plot. The hero would only secure a partnership with heroine's employer IF heroine would be the only person he contact for the deal.
I love the dynamic of their relationship, they compliment each other very well. They could raise the roof with their hot sexy talk and be dominance in their business mode. Though they had a little fun mixing the both side ;D (a little warning, the sex was quite explicit)
The plot was good, engaging and got a great consistent flow yet a whole lot of potential to be more. It left me hanging on the edge of the cliff, so hopefully there would be a second book to follow soon. I really want to know what's going to happen next.
Thumbs up for West to give just the right amount of drama, sexy, and a dash of humour in the prose. It brought the story more oomph in it.
The characters are good, i really like their wittiness, the supporting characters did not get left out from the sassy humour banters in business and pleasure. (my poor kindle has been abused by all the highlight attack of this book~) Vincent was a bit too cocky for my taste in some scenes, though in others he was this brooding, dominant, protective alpha male I'm sure a lot of readers will love.
Readers who like confident, witty characters with a flair of corporate (not so much the kinky way) would love this book. Enjoy readers!!
