Now this is not a book from my challenge 2020. This book was sent to me by the author in exchange for a review after reaching out on the Twitterverse.
Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, nah that’s Iron Man. But it’s close to the main man in this book, Beckett Anderson. A business man at heart, he has power, he has respect. More importantly he is in charge of a multi-billion-dollar business empire. A man who needs to be in control of everything in his life is missing something…someone to share it with. Can he find someone who will commit to the man who cannot love?
“Don’t expect romance and declarations of love from me. It’s not who I am….you’ll have my body, but I don’t have a heart to give to you.”
Meet Evie Holmes. A young lady with no family, she is in desperate need for a new life. Her dream is to have her life free from poverty and not having to worry how to make ends meet. Working at a diner as a waitress has its occasional perks like when certain gorgeous men enter the premises…
“Why do newspapers never fold right after you’ve opened them? Like fitted sheets, once you open that shit, good luck ever getting it refolded. It was almost a metaphor for my life, because it never looked the same after something changed. Except, my life didn’t start out with even the illusion of order.”
After a chance encounter and an impromptu business proposal, could this be the solution they were both looking for?
“No matter how hard the present was, the past was littered with broken hearts and dreams.”
But when two pink lines appear, how will they deal with the surprise that is going to shatter their illusion of the control they thought they had?
“Falling for him would be easy, but I needed to know he would be there to catch me.”
Before you start thinking, ‘oh here we go again, it’s another 50 Shades of Grey,’ trust me, it isn’t! Yes there’s some sex in it, I won’t lie to you all. But, there is also a story here and let me tell you, it is one heck of a story! It had me hooked from page one! I couldn’t put it down and if I did then I couldn’t wait to pick it back up again! This is a book that proves that relationships and marriage aren’t all about sex, it’s about the people involved in them and understanding each other.
“Funny thing about wishes, when they came true it wasn’t always the way you wanted. I’d wanted to be seen, but I hadn’t realised it would make me feel so exposed.”
This for me is a 5 star read! Not going to lie, I really want a sequel!
I would like to thank Kimberly Carrillo for providing me with this opportunity!
