There are two men in my life. I’m marrying one, want to screw the brains out of another, and by the time this story is over you may want to kill someone.
The choices are still pending...
A NO CHEATING standalone you need to read sitting down.
It can break hearts and make messes out of orderly lives.
It’s the particles of dust that remain hidden in the air until light shines and illuminates them.
It’s a captor, and I’m its prisoner.
This book. Wow. It’s my first by the author. And it won’t be my last. I feel like I have found a diamond in the rough. The writing in this book is great and had me hooked from the beginning. I mean, the blurb was enticing. I wanted to know who she wanted to marry, who she wanted to screw, and who she wanted the kill. And the title? Perfect for this book.
The blurb warns us that we’ll want to murder someone in the story, we’ll want her to marry someone, and the main character wants to screw someone in the story. It’s our job to unravel it. The feelings of murder were strong in me.
We have Harlow. We meet her on her birthday and a tragic event occurs that leaves her in the romantic clutches of James, a doctor at The Clinic, a hospital in her town. Within four months, she’s gone from living with her mother saving money for an apartment of her own, to engaged and living the rich life. James is much older than Harlow, 18 years her senior, but looks younger and attractive. Right off of the start, we get that something is slightly off with Harlow’s feelings for James, but she is trying her hardest because she feels a sense of loyalty for all James has done for her. Sinclair is Jame’s nephew. He comes to stay with them for a brief time before moving downtown to Jame’s condo in the city. These are our 3 main characters.
“You,” she mumbles, “have the key,” Her eyes shutter closed. I lift my head and yell into the smoky air. She’ll die if I don’t get her out of this cage. Hell, we’ll both die, because I’ll never leave her.”
“She wraps her arms around my neck. ‘Your love has saved me.'”
Overall, I would rate this 4 stars. It is a standalone. I felt that the first 70% of the book was stronger than the end. The last 30% felt a little…drawn out? I wish it was a little tighter. However, it was still great. We still needed that last 30% to happen. I just wish it condensed a little.
It was a great read!
“Harlow, Harlow,” he murmurs in reverence, as if my previous profession of love has brought him to his knees.
He takes my hand and brings it to his lips. His gentle kisses make me drift to a memory from a couple hours ago when Sin’s lips brushed over my knuckles. I felt everything then. My senses hummed. Now, I feel nothing.
I try to ease my hand from his, but his grip holds me in place. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to hear you say these words?” He places another kiss on my hand. “I forgive you for tonight.”
I do need his forgiveness, because his lips aren’t the ones I want on me. The ones I want belong to the man driving the car behind us. The fact that he’s James’ nephew makes me feel even more ashamed. What is wrong with me?
“You say you love me, but I need you to show me your love. Erase what I saw.” He releases my hand and I can guess what he wants: sex. It’s how he communicates.
“Unzip your dress and remove your bra,” he instructs, his voice rough.
I don’t want to upset him more, so I work myself out of my dress and bra. The air conditioning blows across my bare breasts and my nipples harden. I’m tempted to cover them with my hands, but he wouldn’t approve, so they stay at my sides.
Eyeing my exposed body, he licks his lips, pleased with what he sees. He reaches over to touch the side of my breast, cupping it with his hand. His thumb finds my nipple and strokes over it, pinching it hard. I inhale a sharp breath at the assaulting sensation.
“You’re utter perfection. Feel how hard you make me.” His fingers leave my breast and grip my hand. Placing my hand over his bulging erection and curling my fingers around him, I close my eyes.
“Now, unzip my pants and put me in your hot mouth.”
