"His gaze on me was intense, I couldn't look away. I felt as if I was revealing my entire soul to him in this moment." The range of emotions I had experienced with Ronan felt like a topsy-turvy spinning roller coaster. Suddenly I was awake for the first time in what felt like years. Every fiber of my being was filled with heated desire, passion, lust and fear, and all I wanted was more... more of everything, more of him. How had I just lived these past few years only going through the motions? But, as glorious as all of this was, was I kidding myself? Could it be real? Or just a moment in time - a few days of thrilling and scary excitement rolled into one? The moment before you hit that first big drop on your favorite coaster, you fall, and then it's over. This isn't your typical Hollywood fairy tale where the typecast ordinary girl next door meets the famous handsome actor and they fall in love. Despite the emotional and physical scars that serve as reminders of Holliday Prescott's past, she has evolved into a strong young woman. Ronan Connolly has loved and lost, but he's never been in love. The weight of Hollywood's expectations and the scripted games people play have left him bruised but not broken. He's always followed everyone else's script and she wrote her own. That was until fate swept in with other plans.Pages: 312

“You are mine. I am yours.”
You know that beginning part of a relationship where you just can’t get enough of each other? You know, when you are willing to call in sick and ditch your loved ones just to be near that person and the awesome discovery part of the new relationship? These two are fortunate to be able to spend an abnormally large amount of time together during that part and it makes for some fun and VERY SEXY moments. They definitely have an insta-love relationship, but they are together almost 24/7 and open up about serious issues that usually take couples months to explore. Hell, they even joke about how quickly they bond and fall for each other!
“Can a person really love someone so deeply after only a week? Hello? Cliche much for insta-love?”
Holliday was lovely, but what was a surprise was how tough she was. I liked that. I like my heroines to be able to stand on their own. That being said, there were moments where I wished she wasn’t so put off by Ronan’s desire to protect her. I completely understood where she was coming from, but it was hard to see her struggle when I knew he could take away a lot of her pain. Ronan was absolutely swoon-worthy. He was sexy, funny and protective. Ronan definitely rubbed me the wrong way at first… (pun totally intended.) Once he redeemed himself, I was smitten. What’s not to love about a sexy Irishman who cherishes his kids?
“His gaze on me was intense, I couldn’t look away. I felt as if I was revealing my entire soul to him in this moment.”
We get to know Holliday’s sister and brother-in-law a bit in this book as well as Ronan’s daughters and his body guard, but the main focus is Holliday and Ronan. What I love was how remarkably supportive and loving Holliday’s sister and brother-in-law were. There was nothing they wouldn’t do to support her.
He clutched me in his arms, kissing my forehead, whispering, “Your sister scares the living shit out of me, and I’d really like to keep my cock because I’m quite fond of it.”
I found Holliday’s backstory intriguing. She has overcome so much and I ached for her as she shared her story. Ronan’s response was fantastic. He was so supportive and his inner Alpha came screaming to the surface. Holy Sexiness, Batman! The end of this book hinted at more exploration into Holliday’s past and I am so curious to find out how she and Ronan will handle it. I have a feeling that we only cracked the surface with this opening book.
As I said before, this is an insta-love story, but it was done with a twist. Darker backstories, more consideration and the couple themselves were in awe of the swiftness of their relationship. But whatever, it was fun! HELLO? Did you not hear? Sexy Irishman!!! And let me just tell you, there were some seriously sexy moments in this book. That Ronan has some stamina! Hot diggity! My kindle was melting!!! ***fans self***
“Love isn’t something you can put a timeline on, you know that right?As it would seem, fate had other plans for us. Wouldn’t you agree?”
Overall I give this book 4 Sexy-Ass stars and pair it with several shots of saki!
