There's just one problem. Sebastian is more than he seems. Between the famous company he keeps and the almost paranoid secrecy of his employers, he's a puzzle Sophia can't quite solve, and his insistence on keeping things casual forces her to confront the demons of her past.
Can she learn to trust again? Or will Sebastian's privacy tear them apart?
I read the blurb of this book and thought “Here we go again. Rich man pursues pretty single female for great sex, yada yada yada” But I would like it noted that I was very pleasantly surprised with this one.
Sophie Pearce is a strong independent woman who isn’t afraid to take a risk. She is full of confidence and likes to have a little fun. She meets the mysterious and charismatic Sebastian Lock at a private function that she wasn’t invited too. It’s thanks to Sophie’s outlook on life that allows her relationship with Sebastian to develop. Sebastian filthy rich and is able to see what he wants in life and goes after it.
This was a novella rather than a full novel and this made me wary to start with. Usually these types of stories can be rushed and you don’t get any sense of chemistry between the lead characters, this story however, wasn’t rushed and it moved at a good pace. I was able to feel Sophie and Sebastian’s chemistry build up until that all important moment. The story had some of the best sex scenes I have seen in a book in a long time. I think, again, partly due to the fact that their relationship wasn’t rushed.
This book has a cliff hanger but it’s part of a trilogy so there is more to Sophie and Sebastian’s story to come.
This audio book was narrated by Carmen Rose who has a very pleasant Australian accent. If I was to criticise anything about this book it would be the voice Carmen used for Sebastian, I thought it a little strange and made him appear older than he probably was.
All in all a well written story that did keep me interested as it progressed. It had great steamy sex scenes and a story which will no doubt untangle itself as the trilogy goes on.
