“He possessed her with just a kiss”
The title of this book is accurate it rushes in and takes hold of you. I was a little concerned at first that this story was going to be the same old thing that I had already read in 50 Shades or the Crossfire series. While Gabe Hamilton is almost the perfect combo of Christian Grey and Gideon Cross at first glance, his romance with Mia offers something new that we haven’t seen before. You’re going to need something dark and heavy to drink with this- I’m thinking Crown Royal.
I loved most everything about this story. Mia is a younger woman that’s always had a thing for her much older brothers best friend. I myself always had a thing for older men while I was growing up so this was very appealing to me. Gabe is rich and hot and powerful and at first he thinks it will only be a fulfillment of fantasy when he offers Mia a ‘contract’ to sign to work for him in his office and his bedroom. Obviously he will fall in love with her and much drama will ensue.
Pour yourself a stiff one… (pun intended). There were some things in this book that I found to be a little overwhelming. One of the sex scenes was a little much for me. They went into ‘forbidden territory’. If you’re into that then it might not be so hard for you to read. Although I can say that it was something I had not read before. There is also a scene that is probably one of the most brutal that I have read in a long time.
All in all I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. The sex scenes were fantastic (with one exception). Their story was good and was pretty believable- there were no deep dark secrets or tragedies that made Gabe the way he was. He’s an alpha male and he likes what he likes no excuses or apologies. And while Mia is somewhat submissive to him, she is not a doormat. Also the dynamic of a long time forbidden romance. Always wondering if the real thing would live up to the fantasy. In this case it definitely does!
4 stars and some Crown on the rocks! Enjoy!
