Releasing control is relief…
I was warned about men like Brett Maclean.
He was dark and thrilling, intense and controlling. And he captivated me from the very start. He unleashed something inside of me like no other. His bad rep and troubled past drew me to him like gasoline feeding a flame.
With just one taste, I felt the danger in him, the uncontrollable power that left me breathless. The passion consumed me. Fast and hard.
Temptation couldn't guard my heart. I should have known a man of such raw and wild desires came with competition.
The most notable thing about Brett was how comfortable he was in his own skin. To be more specific he knew he could pretty much have anyone he wanted and his attitude supported this. I immediately wanted Evvie to bring him down a notch. Bring him down to planet Earth with the rest of us. Throughout the story there were a few things that I did NOT like and there were things that I did like. I loved the relationship Evvie had with her brothers and how protective of her they were.
As far as what I had issues with I did not like Brett at any point in this story. I didn’t like how he called Evvie lover; that itself irked the crap out of me. I despised how he seemed to always have the control whether it was in the bedroom or in everyday life. My impression of Evvie was of a young immature girl. When Brett decided he wanted to pursue her I just saw a doe (Evvie) running from a wolf (Brett). And not in a good way.
I’m happy to say that the book did get better. The love scenes were smoking hot and Brett sure knew how to maximize their pleasure. ;) I wasn’t completely on board with how easily Brett fell into Claire’s plans and Claire’s character seemed to just disappear at the end, but other than that I appreciated the HEA.
I'm a new self-published author who just got introduced to the writing world early 2013. My aunt suggested that I write a story because I'm an avid reader but I waved it off and left it alone. Well this year, a story came to me and I went with it. It took me a little bit but I finally got a story idea that worked and now I can't stop or control the characters/stories that keep popping up in my head. I'm born and raised in Canada and I live with my very wonderful and supportive husband, Michael. We don't have any children (yet) unless you count our cats. My hubby been my rock through this whole new experience for me. I couldn't have done it without him and my friends and family. One of the many things I love about this new chapter in my life is that I'm learning constantly. It's never a dull moment and as long as one person likes my story, I am happy.
