Sparks fly the instant Ben and Julia meet, but she resists his intoxicating charms, certain a celebrity romance will bring only trouble. But before long the heat between them becomes undeniable and she allows him into her bed and her heart. The more in love Ben falls, the more he fears losing her. When Julia’s life is endangered, Ben’s reaction terrifies her, forcing them both to confront their biggest fears if they want a chance at a future together
I always think it’s a true testament of an author’s talent when they can not only tell, but make you visualize a complete story in a novella format. That is what happens every time I read Ms. Stivali. She has once again delivered a delicious, steamy, highly erotic romance that you have to devour in one sitting.
Ben and Julia have so much chemistry together. They give this book tons of spark. Their dialog is packed full of emotion no matter what is going on in the scene. It really helps to build a connection with their characters.
They are both carrying around a tremendous amount of baggage that stems from past relationships. They have fun and enjoy each other but neither one is sure that they will be able overcome their pasts. I liked how the plot line revolved around both of them and their issues. It wasn’t just an obstacle for one to work through, but both. It made their relationship seem more solid in the end.
If you’re looking for a romance book that is crammed full of scorching sex, lots of laughs, and a well balanced, believable plot this is a definite must read!
