Jonathan Drazen. Gorgeous. Charming. Smart. Rich.
All the ingredients for a few nights of mind-blowing pleasure are right there. He’s made it perfectly clear he can’t love me, and I’m not out to fall in love either.
But I can’t stay away from him. He’s got this bossy way about him in bed. The word “Sir,” falls from my lips, and when he tells me to get on my knees…well, my knees have a mind of their own.
I got this. I can be his slave for a few nights and walk away unscathed.
We get in. Get it on. Get the hell out. Done.
He knows the line between love and lust. It’s right between my legs.
Now, let’s see if that line blurs for me.
This was the first CD Reiss book that I didn’t love.
Maybe it is timing, maybe it was mood, maybe I’m in a slump, but this book just didn’t impact me the way some of CD’s other books have.
It could also be that I’m a little burnt out on the powerful, dominating billionaire thing.
Though, I knew this trope was getting old for me, I thought if anyone could pull it off, it would be CD. And while her writing was a beautiful as always, the story barely held my attention the entire way through.
I didn’t feel a connection with the characters and I didn’t feel the chemistry between them either.
Again, I appreciated the prose and I appreciated the character development and approach, but I wasn’t swept away by this novel.
I know this series is a popular one of CD’s, and maybe if I read it at a different time, I would’ve enjoyed it a bit more, but I don’t think I’ll be reading the rest of the series.
