This is my first time reading anything from the “Billionaire Series,” or anything from the writer and it will not be my last. The story grabs you from the very beginning. The alpha male in Kade really shines through with his tough exterior and ferociously protective nature. The heroine Asha, an Indian American, is also endearing.
The story is about Asha running from an abusive past and warped upbringing convincing her that women are second class citizens, and even in America she can’t shake off the notion that she’s undeserving of happiness and peace. Kade, a former star quarterback for the Florida Cougars, is battling his own demons and insecurities because of an abusive upbringing and an unfortunate accident that left him with injuries that ended his football career.
Once Kade lays his eyes on Asha, his attraction to her is instantaneous and this is noticeable as the author stimulates all the reader’s senses. This story could have progressed as a cliché but J.S. Scott cleverly added layers and dimension to the characters, especially to Asha. She was able to delve into the Indian culture to expose the abuse of Indian women, even those born and living in America, from mental and physical abuse to arranged marriages for profit.
Scott paints a vivid picture of Asha’s difficult experiences, both the past and the present, which she has had to endure. These will have readers weeping; they’ll also be cheering for every small hurdle Asha overcomes.
Kade is the perfect male for Asha, his protectiveness and patience never get old. He is the crutch that Asha needs and she is the balm to sooth his inner battles. The heat is off the chain but it fits right in.
Looking for a feel good story with heat? Then, this is your kind of book.
