I want no part of messy emotions, of lust and surrender. But none of that seems to matter to Christos Constantine. No matter how much I resist, no matter how much I fight, he keeps coming after me…and I am powerless.
Juliet Russo’s pride and strength of will have always kept her safe. The armor she has built around herself is impenetrable and no one is allowed to see beneath. She has managed to keep Christos and the attraction that simmers between them at bay for two years, but he’s done taking no for an answer.
For a short story this was a very emotional ride, a ride that our heroine Juliet Russo doesn’t want to enjoy. She is prideful, beautiful, stubborn and head over heels in love with Christos Constantine. He is everything she wants but she won’t admit to needing and wanting. Christos is a tall, dark and handsome DOMINANT he has wanted Juliet for years this time he won’t stop at no and not having her.
This is a story about dominance and submission but not full out BDSM, this is more the emotional aspect of letting go. We see in our heroine a woman who has to always be in control but yearns to let go. Juliet has no idea how to let go to just feel and not be in control of everything she scared to even try. I found myself wanting to yell at Juliet because she just didn’t see nor wouldn’t see how wonderful her life would be if she just let it go. I wanted her to lean on Christos and he to lean on her to love and laugh and be happy, I found I was Christos’ biggest cheerleader and my goodness the man is sexy.
When Juliet finally begins to surrender it’s almost magical yet their coming together is primal and so high charged. I recommend getting a fan, a cool drink of water and your very own Christos to call your own. I loved this story I loved the emotions and the give and take, I loved meeting Christos’ family and seeing him so tender. My only wish was that this story was longer I would love to have seen them raising children or better yet Juliet in pregnancy. Julia Devlin did a wonderful job with this story and I can’t wait to read more this is definitely a recommended read.
