He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.
The minute this hit my kindle I dove right in. I was dying to get my hands on this and Katy Evans does not disappoint. The relationship dynamic between Christos and Bryn is delivered flawlessly. These two friends reconnect after years of not seeing each other and the feeling from long ago are still hot and sizzling.
I loved Bryn’s determination. After everything she has gone through she was determined to be independent. I loved her devotion and persistence for her passion and bringing her dreams to life. Christos is absolutely swoon worthy. This supposedly big bad mogul is totally panty melting and romantic in the little things he does and the sweetest and filthy things he says.
“I’ve never met a woman whose scent made me want to devour her like yours does. You confuse me, Bryn. You make me want to protect you and at the same time you make me want to break you. I want you to stop thinking and just fucking feel me. Feel this.”
*SWOON* Yea, ya feel me? Oh Aaric! SWOON WORTHY!! I was done for with this one. He had me right from the get go. His story touched my heart. It was like from rags to riches. Determined to become someone worthy this man is unstoppable and I love that he wasn’t all caveman to get the girl. He was supportive, patient yet persistent.
Katy Evans delivers amazing passion and chemistry. I devoured this book overnight and was left feeling absolutely giddy!!
