“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”
When Kristen Daley meets Vincent Sorensen, she certainly gets more than what she bargained for. Kristen is a financial analyst trying to secure Vincent, a billionaire entrepreneur, as the newest client for the firm she works for. It will be a huge step for her career. She has researched everything she can about him and his company. He is a tattooed surfer who turned his love of extreme sports into a billion dollar company. She could never have predicted the physical effect he would have on her. She is immediately attracted to him and she can tell he feels the same way. She is reluctant to get involved with him for personal as well as professional reasons. However her resistance will only last for so long. She has been hurt in the past and does not want to jeopardize her career for some man.
In a genre that certainly is being done more and more, Ms. West manages to keep things fresh, original and exciting. Yes, Vincent is wealthy and a bit of a bad boy, but his attitude is refreshing. He is not a complete dominant alpha male, nor does he feel the need to know Kristen’s every move. Yes he is protective and definitely pursues her hard but he is not overbearing or controlling. Kristen is also not our typical damsel in distress type either. Yes she does have a past that comes back to haunt her, but she is not helpless.
The chemistry between these two is hot hot hot! Kristen has an uncontrollable physical reaction to Vincent when he is around. He feels the same way about her. For a man who could clearly have any woman, this is absolutely about more than sex for him. The sex scenes are great and manage to not be repetitive. They spend a lot of time apart so when they are able to be together things get hot. Fast.
I read all three novellas as if they were one book. I cannot say that I liked a certain one better than the rest. There is also a great story line written in between all the smoking hot love scenes. (view spoiler) Kristen and Vincent do spend a lot of time apart so there are some misunderstandings but this really only fuel their desires for each other.
My only issue with the series was that the ending seemed a bit rushed. I felt that there could have been another book or at least a few more chapters added on.
4.5 stars for the series as a whole and I would highly recommend a nice Mojito or Pina Colada and beach day to read this steamy series! Enjoy!
Thank you to the publisher for generously offering this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
