MAMA MIA…This book was SCORCHING HOT. Which was both good and bad (for reasons I will get into in a sec). First the good…this was a very well written book. It was well paced. It was told in a dual POV format. The plot was engaging, and I found it to be quite unique. As I said above, this was a super hot book, and for the most part, I loved that about it. That said, I would have liked to have seen a bit more interaction between Kat and Declan outside of the sex. Having sex or talking about having sex if pretty much ALL they do. So it was a little hard to fully buy into these two having an HEA long term if you took away their sexual connection. It was just a minor issue though. Last, it was all wrapped up in a happy for now ending.
DECLAN…Declan was an a$$hole for a lot of this book. He treated Kat like trash a lot of the time. That said, she kept coming back for more, so who am I to hold his behavior against him? (lol) He was also smokin’ hot. He was a dirty talker. He was alpha. I ended up really liking him by the end.
KAT…Kat was a difficult character to like, to be honest. I get humiliation was her thing hence why she kept coming back for more from Declan, but lord did I cringe on more than a few occasions. I desperately wanted her to grow a backbone. I also struggled with some decisions she made. She crossed lines that were not hers to cross. I mean the chick figuratively threw her Dad under the bus! That said, she had her moments, so again, it was just a minor issue.
This book was very low on secondary characters. I really liked Flynn though and I hope the author plans on writing a book for him. Speaking of Flynn, there was actually something that made NO sense to me concerning him and the heroine. I put it in spoiler tags… (HIGHLIGHT TEST FOR SPOILER) How could the heroine NOT know where he worked? They were BFF’s! Didn’t she ask him where his job was? I can understand him keeping certain aspects of the hotel a secret, but she acts like she has never even heard of the place before?? That whole scenario left me scratching my head! The only other few we see are a couple coworkers and Kat’s mom and dad. The majority of the plot is main character focused.
VERY HIGH. There was SO much smokin’ hot sex in this book. Sex, sex, and more sex. Voyeurism. Humiliation. Spanking. Ring gags. Some light BDSM. Sharing. A gang bang featuring the heroine. Like I said, A LOT – OF – SEX! (lol)
~ANGST LEVEL – SEXUAL HISTORIES~
Medium…this was a somewhat angsty read. The hero does quite a lot of pushing and pulling. He also treats the heroine badly quite a few times. The heroine does some questionable things as well. Neither were virgins. There was no OW drama. There wasn’t any OM drama, in the sense of an OM causing drama between the couple. The hero shares the heroine with another man once, and the heroine takes part in a gang bang (Sans the hero). There is also talk that the hero will share the heroine again in the future but only if he takes part as well.
~IN THE END~
I enjoyed it quite a lot. There were a couple little issues that kept me from rating it higher, but they were just small things. Overall it was a well written and quick read. The sex scenes were scorching. The plot unique. The characters (mostly) likable. Therefore yours truly is going to give this one two thumbs up.
