Oh my, what a delicious book! This is my first time reading anything from this writer and most certainly will not be my last. This book is part of a series, and although the writer tries to fill in the missing bits and pieces, I felt sort of left out. The main characters and even the secondary characters have met in the past and there the conflict started.
Now, Richard and Dawn’s story starts off with them reconnecting because they need each other in regards to business. Richard is a handsome all-alpha male who is learning how to treat Dawn’s fragile heart although it is clear to the reader how crazy he is about her. Dawn, on the other hand, is battling self-esteem issues while trying to decipher Richard’s feelings for her. They both decide, in addition to business, they will give their relationship a try on a personal level. During their six month separation Dawn became involved in a venture that she feels Richard has pushed her towards, but then a “friend” gets his hands on some vital information and began threatening to expose her via blackmail. The secret she is harboring is what is affecting her relationship with Richard, because she still doesn’t trust him enough to share her fears.
The writer was able to pull me in to the story quickly and I found the characters endearing. I actually felt what Richard and Dawn were feeling for each other and I began rooting for them. My next step is to gather all the other books in the series and fit in the missing pieces. Something tells me I won’t be disappointed.
