    My cock has an appetite. A huge and very particular appetite: blond, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although that's a story for another day.) As a high-profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online. My rules are simple: one dinner. One night. No repeats. This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less. At least it was until Alyssa...

    I sat and listened to this book for hours on and I love the way the writer took you through the lives of each participant.I enjoyed the way the story unfolded how you got to know each character.
    This book showed how the lives of the main characters started out rocky and it look like nothing was going to ever happen and in my thoughts I thought it was over to find out of course it wasn't and it is a happily ever after.
    My kudos to the right or to the reader and the storing content.

    Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

    All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him - or herself. M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed - and that she fears only he can satisfy.

    Kate is a modern businesswoman who knows exactly how to run her well-organized world. But underneath her professional exterior lurks a secret that she’s been running from for years - a fierce desire to be dominated that both exhilarates and terrifies her. And there’s only one man who’s ever tempted her to lose control. Powerful executive Matt Pearce gave Kate her first taste of what it means to surrender completely at the hands of a dominant man, and she's never been able to forget. Though she’s spent years trying to outrun her feelings for him, a chance encounter changes everything....
