Best Quote: sorry but didn’t see any good quotes

Worst Quote: “Blowjobs were not Chloe’s favourite thing to do, but something about this man made her want to do things she’d never even tried before” – (so did she or did she not ever give a BJ before? Strange considering she was married for 7 years to her now deceased husband!)

Personal Review:

The premise sounded so good and I was excited about this book but I was sadly disappointed.

So we have a rich H who falls in lust with the h at first sight and goes on to molest her within 24 hours of meeting her (and the h had to say ‘no’ several times). I understand the ‘anti-hero’, ‘possessive’, ‘controlling’ and ‘overprotective’ themes that are becoming increasingly common in romances but there is a difference between a jerk-hero and an anti-hero. Jax is veering more towards jerk-hero for me.

The h has gone through some horrible stuff…which she tells H within 24 hours of meeting. Felt a little rushed because how many people tell someone they have just met about their horrible past? Maybe it’s just me and I am more private so I can never, in a million years, tell strangers my past. Oh, and then the h and H immediately have sex. Hmm…I never thought that talking about your husband’s and children’s death would be a ‘turn on’?!

I did like how the h DID say ‘no’ and didn’t just immediately ‘melt’ for the H and she was quick to scold H on his ‘bossiness’ although this didn’t last very long



Random Ramblings:

It was a little disconcerting how forward Jax was with Chloe at the beginning, to the point that I was getting odd vibes

HATE the H constantly referring to the h as ‘babe’

The OCD twist was interesting as a concept but it did not make a difference in me liking the h any more

Overall Feeling:
