  • “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.

    Fluttering Thoughts:

    Worldbuilding: This story is mainly set in Manhattan but also hops to the Caribbean and South Africa for a little while.
    Characters: The hero and heroine of this story were Vincent and Kristen. I really liked Vincent’s character. He wasn’t the usual asshole-ly, alpha male billionaire type that many books in this category tend to take on. He was seductive and attentive with just the right amount of arrogance to make his whole persona work! Kristen was an interesting character. Kristen was in between a rock and a hard place. Due to her high profile job, indulging in fantastic indiscretions are definitely looked down upon. But instead of falling ass over vagina at the sight of Vincent she did try hard not to be interested and hold a professional relationship with him.
    Plot: This first book in the trilogy definitely seemed like a spring board for getting to know the characters and laying down the foundation for a good relationship. Then all of a sudden it turned a little thrilling because you get a piece of Kristen’s past and that doesn’t seem so pretty. The story is set at a pretty steady pace so I’m excited to see how the rest of the trilogy builds!
    Writing: This novella was told in the first person point of view of Kristen. I would have really, really loved to get Vincent’s point of view because he would just be an awesome character to understand!
    Curb Appeal: I adore the cover! Honestly besides the title *wink wink* that cover definitely drew me in! The blurb does a good job of giving a rundown of the story but kind of leaves out how much more Vincent is than just a gorgeous guy with a silver tongue.
    Ultimately: This was a good starting point for this series! I’m excited to see where the story goes and if there are any more surprises from Vincent and Kristen’s pasts that will come out to play!!
