This is what sex is supposed to be like.
Hot, hard, and sweaty.
Where the rules are: there are no rules.
The heroine: Kate Landon (a.k.a. Pinkie Laroo) – an IT manager at Miles Media. Kate lost her parents six years ago and it affected her greatly, she basically shut down her emotions. She is afraid of getting too close to people for fear that they will die and leave her broken-hearted.
The Hero(es): Elliot Miles (a.k.a. Edgar Moffatt) – CEO of the London and German divisions of Miles Media. His brother Christopher works with him at the London office and his two other brothers Jameson and Tristan work at the New York office. Elliot doesn’t date because every time he has in the past, the paparazzi follows him around and posts everything about his relationships which ends up scaring any “real” girls away. He has been dubbed “Casanova” Miles by the press.
The story: Kate and Elliot have worked together for years but always hated each other and fought like crazy. But when Miles is checking out the security feeds one night to see where in the building his brothers are, he comes across a feed of Kate in a short red netball dress dancing in front of a copy machine and feels something for the first time in years.
The interactions between Elliot and Kate are amusing and some are super steamy. I like that the books in this series are long and there are plenty of intimate scenes. Elliot is hot, demanding and dominant and I really liked him. He is also a romantic at heart, which isn’t always a good thing since he thinks that despite the feelings he is having for Kate, she is not “the one”.
Elliot’s romantic heart tells him that when he meets “the one”, he will immediately know it from the first time he sees her. Like he will feel the earth move or something and just know. Since he felt nothing more than annoyance for years after meeting Kate, he thinks he just wants her for her body.
The story was really good and I just loved the fact that they were constantly messaging one another anonymously on a dating site and through that, Kate got more insight into what Elliot was feeling since she was aware from very early on that her friend Edgar was in fact Elliot.
There was a lot of back and forth about their relationship in this book, but I guess I like that more in some books than in others. I don’t know why it bothers me sometimes when the story alternates between fighting and making up, between uncertainty and steamy scenes, but I enjoyed it all in this book and I will most definitely be waiting for Christopher Miles’s story next.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
