Alexia, Lexi to all her friends, lived her life her way. Even if it meant putting aside her dreams and dealing with her overbearing mother. She loved the world she had created for herself as a waitress in a chic Montréal bistro. Until one day a businessman comes into the bistro and challenges the life she’s come to love.
She’s caught between her desire for him and the desire to protect what she herself has created. He is domineering and strong with all his wealth and power, as he unapologetically pursues her.
Should she give in? Should she set aside who she is and be with him in his world?
Lukas Blakk is exactly what Lexi has always wanted but the man has a past that Lexi might not be ready for.
“Could you be more careful next time?” he asked, actually demanded. He stood with his hand on his waist again, breathing heavy. “Have you any idea the kinds of things these stupid men think about when they see you wearing something like that?” He strained his words, trying to keep calm.
“I know exactly what men think. That’s why I wore it!” I snapped back.
Lukas and I were back at our staring match. A silent calm stood between us as we glared
at each other.
“Okay, time to get back to drinking.” I heard Roxi sing to Kaci. I knew they would be
watching this non-verbal match between us.
“You stupid girl, you came dressed like this for what?” He pointed at me. Oh no, he
didn’t. Keep calm and cool, the less angry you get, the better you control the argument; that was my mantra.
“I came dressed like this to prowl, Sir Lukas. I’m here to find someone to fuck. And last time I checked, you were a customer at the bistro I work for, not my father, not my lover, and most certainly not my husband,” I said in a low, hushed voice. No man would tell me how I should dress, but I needed him to know there was no relationship between us for him to act this way. His jaw locked, making the muscles of his seething, sexy face move, his eyes shining crystal blue; the colour so sharp it could cut me.
“To fuck?” It almost came out as a whisper. “To fuck?” he said again.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a steamy read and I love that Lexi was not afraid to speak her mind. She was not about to let anyone walk all over her. She had a great set of friends that kept you entertained and laughing throughout. Her friend Roxi was an absolute trip and the things that came out of her mouth were just hilarious at times. Her best friend, Kaci, was another great friend and supporter.
I love a book that has just the right amount of elements to the story line that keep you engaged in the story. It had laughter, love, drama, sadness, heartache, an extremely sexy, domineering man and steamy sex.
Lukas Blakk is sexy and domineering as ever. He is extremely bossy and makes mistakes along the way but he always tries to make things right with Lexi. He wants Lexi and he will do anything to keep her. But sometimes things don't always go how you want them to.
Secrets, Lies and deception come about. Lexi is determined to move forward and makes her dreams a reality but does her reality include Lukas?
This book certainly had my attention from the very beginning. It pulls you on an emotional whirlwind. I definitely recommend it and I will definitely be looking into reading more from this author.
