So I love Lauren Blakely books but this series has really taken it up a notch for me. Not only do we get the really hot sex that we love (and we DO love it), but there is also the story of the Sloane Siblings' cookoo mom in prison. Ryan is by far the hottest and dirties Blakely Boy yet and dammit he was delicious. I loved hoe he was both demanding and tender and despite what he believed about himself, very much capable of loving someone. And loving them beautifully at that. Sophie was strong and independent and I loved how she could stand on her own as master of her own universe, but then just as easily submit to Ryan in the bedroom. They were perfect.
There was minimum angst in the romance aspect of the story, which is a huge plus for me. It is really nice to have the drama kept to a minimum sometimes. "The mother" however was a another story. That woman makes me want to pull my own hair out, one strand at a time. Poor Ryan has been harboring her secrets for years and it has really taken a toll on him. When he demands answers to make sense of them all, he doesn't get much from her, but enough to rattle him a bit. But the real doozy comes in the very last sent sentence of the book. Holy cliffhanger Batman I did NOT see that one coming. I cannot wait to see what happens now with the Sloane family and their insane mother. No really, I can't wait. Is it November yet?
|“I wanted to fuck you from the second I saw you. I wanted to eat you. I wanted to make you come. And I wanted to come in that pretty mouth of yours.”|
|The world around them was dark and quiet. There was only the slightest rustle of an evening breeze. They were all alone on the turnout at the side of the road, and he was going to fuck her good and hard.|
|“The way I see it, I’m not going to last a week without seeing you, much less a few days. So if we’re going to this fundraiser thing in a week, I’m going to be seeing you at least three times before then. So the fundraiser will be our seventh, and you need to be fully prepared for me to fuck you like I own you over the next three dates.”|
|“You’re all I thought about all day. Seeing you. Touching you. Tasting you. Having you. And fucking you.”|
**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
|His fingers traveled along her spine and up her neck to her hair, grabbing it, turning her so she looked up at him. Her eyes were hazy and full of a lust that matched his. “Do you have any idea what you do to me?” he asked harshly.|
“I think I do.”
“You are under my skin,” he whispered, as he kept her pressed against the warm hood with one hand, then slinked his other hand down to her waist, and unfastened the slim, orange belt. “And in my head,” he continued as he snapped the belt free. “And I can’t fucking stop thinking about you.”
“I can’t stop either,” she said, and in a flash he wrapped the belt around her wrists, knotting it, twisting it, and tying her hands together with her own accessory. She allowed him, offering up her wrists to be bound. She was a willing hostage.
“That turns me on even more,” he growled in her ear, as he stretched her tied arms along the silver hood.
“Tying me up?”
“Yes,” he said, pressing his erection against her ass. “But what makes me rock hard is the way you let me. The way you want me to. The way you give your body to me,” he said as he grabbed a condom from his pocket, unzipped his pants, and pushed down his briefs.

Soon, he has to have more. All of her — heart, mind and body.
The only trouble is, he hasn’t been honest about how he met her and the dangerous connection he has to her brother.
When the truth is revealed, he’ll have to give more of himself than he’s bargained for or risk losing the only woman he’s ever let into his heart.
