The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.
My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…
But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.
Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?
I have a feeling those might do the trick.
This is book three in the Forbidden Desires series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s recommended you start with Dirty Little Secret.
I know the book description says that one should go read the first book in the series before cracking this one (it “spoils” the end of Book 1 in the first chapter, but given they’re all romances, it’s not that big of a spoiler), but given I’m in the middle of studying for finals and writing my final papers, I
The novel takes place in Boston, so woo! Okay, seriously now, my review:
Right off the bat, I really liked Cooper’s brothers Quinn and Gavin (I have a feeling I’ll like him even better when I go back to his novel and finally read it), and Corinne’s maternal figure Mauve (isn’t that such a cool name?). And she’s such a firecracker, so that’s awesome.
Cooper, on the other hand… I liked him at first but his initial (mistaken) reaction to Corinne had me cringing (especially given the current political and celebrity client). Luckily, he apologizes, but my god, I had to will myself to keep reading until I got lost in the story again (although that took a bit since his behavior, and some of his talk with his brothers that objectified women, left a sour taste in my mouth). Although, he proves to be a more stand-up guy when they negotiate in the fourth chapter, which made me happy. And the end of 6th chapter had him in my good graces again.
I liked Corinne a lot. I identified with her and wanted her to be happy from the get go, but her constant running had me wanting to shake her.
And, on a happier note, Cooper and Corinne have amazing chemistry. And can I just say that his nickname for her “little dove” was super sexy. I liked the outcome, but the main “obstacle” to their relationship struck me as strange and not as a strong enough reason (which itself becomes a plot point, but…). So, all in all, while they were both good people (bad early impressions aside) and I’m glad they’re together, the story wasn’t my favorites by any stretch.
