Two years later, he was back. Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close. Under the tutelage of Lei Yeung, one of the sharpest businesswomen in New York, I had picked up a thing or two since Jax walked away. I wasn't the girl he once knew, but he hadn't changed.
Unlike the last time we'd drifted into each other's lives, I knew exactly what I was dealing with... and how addictive his touch could be.The inner circle of glamour, sex, and privilege was Jax's playground - but this time, I knew the rules of the game. In the cutthroat business world, one adage rules all: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer...
Coming into the story I was immediately won over by Gianna and her family. The dynamic of the large tightknit Italian family is heartwarming, they are united, supportive, and they help one another to succeed. The banter between them is fun and leaves you wanting more, these secondary characters are a big part of what makes the story so interesting and amusing. Gianna is such a passionate and strong-minded character it is easy to like her. Jackson, on the other hand, is more difficult to accept. He takes time to warm up to. He has so many secrets and with his past record I found it hard to trust him. Even when Gia began to trust Jax, I was Leary, I even became a bit frustrated with Gia for not guarding herself enough. Afterburn and Aftershock kept my feelings confused until the end. ***Be warned this book has some very sizzling bedroom scenes. If it is one area Jax and Gia know well it is the bedroom.***
Amy McFadden is amazing! She is absolutely the perfect Gianna Rossi. Gia has a strong Brooklyn accent that she would rather not have, as she strives to become more sophisticated she tries to avoid her accent all together, but the accent becomes impossible to hide if her emotions are doing the talking. Amy nailed this accent! She used it in all the right places, and avoided it when Gia would rather not have it. With so many secondary characters in the story, Amy had her work cut out for her, and she did a wonderful job with each character.
