In the words of the Carters, “who wants that perfect love story anyway?”
Ladies and gentlemen, this was not your typical love story. That would be too cliché. This was a story about lust, gluttony, greed, desire, adultery, lies, betrayals, secrets, and passion, and how all those things came together when a man meets a woman whose essence spoke to him. This was more than a story about a dominant and submissive. More than a boss and his subordinate. More than sex. More than love. This was the story of a woman who met her match in the most unlikely place and discovered that her need for him consumed her and turned her world upside down.
Alexander Reeves: He just might be my favorite dominant ever written. The things he did to and for Amelia endeared me to him. He was everything you would imagine a dominant to be. Possessive. Controlling. Sketchy past that shaped him to the man he is now. High libido. Rich. However, I was not expecting him to be very in tuned with his emotions, but he was.
Favorite Line: You are the heart that pumps life through my body. Each beat belongs to you, because it is you. I am you, Amelia. (You may not fall out. How sweet?)
Amelia Jones: I understood her. I got her. Can you imagine meeting a man that you were instantly drawn to? He instantly affected your body like no one you've ever met. What would you do? Probably the same thing Amelia did. I loved that she pushed the envelope in their dominant/submissive relationship. She’s a rebel who couldn't truly conform to the role of a submissive yet she wanted to explore that world anyway.
Favorite Moment: Her driving his Trident Iceni Grand Tourer aka Her Majesty for the first time. Followed by her moment with Honeydew aka his Lamborghini. She loved cars just like I do. Hell, she named her Range Rover Cloud Nine.
My thoughts: I really really really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. What an amazing ride! From the moment Amelia and Alexander met, I was rooting for them. Alexander I. did a wonderful job writing this story. I felt every emotion they felt. When she was angry and sad so was I. When her desires consumed her, I felt that too. This story grabs you and brings you into their world. It’s a must read especially if you are over the cliché love story. I can’t wait for the sequel in December. 5 stars from me.
P.S. I was given this book from the author in an exchange for my honest review.
