In this New York Times bestselling erotic enovella trilogy, a buttoned-up businesswoman takes her friend’s advice and has a fling with a stranger on a trip to Vegas—only to find herself under his mysterious, sexy power both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she’s supposed to be. She’s a rising-star-workaholic at a global consulting firm. She’s the fiancée of a well-connected man who’s won the approval of her parents. People know that she’s reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic, and yes, a little predictable. She’s who Dave and her family want her to be.
But as her thirtieth birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild and crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. Under the tailored clothes it’s clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful, and maybe even a little dangerous. With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and before long, she’s in his hotel room.
She never gets his full name. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she’s able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it’s why she’s just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life. Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night. But when the mysterious gentleman she’s just had a fling with shows up in her office—as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more—things will never be the same again. And there’s no telling where this will go…
I give this 3 stars... I loved some parts and didn't care for others making this just a good read for me.
It started out really good, I loved the characters and their interactions, then something happened and it just kind of went flat for me. I've read that this was originally written as a serial series with 3 installments, I think there should have been a little editing done where the segments were joined together so we weren't reading a recap of the previous chapters. Each time a new segments was introduced it felt like they were written at different times, like the author wasn't in the same mindset or something.. I just think with some clever editing this would be a solid 4 star read.
I started out in love with Robert, then as the story progresses he becomes more of an ass, and not the hot kind either, he becomes the kind of person you need to get away from as soon as possible or you'll find yourself sucked in and then tossed to the side when he's done. I found that there were very few characters I did like by the end of it, but its what made the story work.
Some of the characters were one dimensional; while Robert had layers, you just scratch the surface with him, and it's a shame because there is so much potential there. I said before this would be a 4 star read with editing, add in some character depth and this could easily be a 5 star book.
For me it's a 3, but I enjoyed my time, it did it's job in entertaining me for the weekend.
