Soon, though, the idea of sex as retaliation begins to intrigue her - a no-strings-attached, sexually subversive liaison may be just what she needs before she can forgive Andrew. Hooking up with Peter, a dark and dangerous artist willing to push the limits of Sophie's lustful, quivering need, fits the bill perfectly.
Sophie's covetousness for Peter was always about experiencing intensity in the moment, but soon the affair runs its course and now it's time for her to focus on her future...with Andrew. Except, Peter is convinced he can't live without her. Then come the cards, the presents, the calls...the hint of a threat. One way or another he will have Sophie. Even if that means exacting revenge of his own.

At first, I was a little skeptical to get this book. That was until I started listening, immediately I was into it! I usually listened to audio book to help me nod off into sleep and I found myself staying up until 4am to hear more. Although the ending was predictable and I felt the author could of put some of the details off until closer to the end. Only because I immediately knew what was going to happen. But as for the thrill and romance, it burst out of my ear buds and left me begging for more! It's defintely worth the money and very good!
Say something about yourself!
So far the best kayla perrin book I've listened to. I loved the story and the narrator.
I just could not get into this story because i hated the way the main character acted, stupid, selfish and bitchy. I got most of the way through it and just gave up, I skipped through the rest of it quickly to see if it somehow got any better, it did not.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This is an interesting story but it could of been so much better.I did like the realization of the damaging and sometimes unexpected consequences of your actions. It wasn't a book that swept me into it. It has some interesting twists though. This one was is good enough for me to be satisfied with if I had gotten it on sale but not enough for using my credit. It does have strong sexual content but not the "steamy hot sex" that you get from Maya Banks, Shayla Black, Lora Leigh or Olivia Cunning, which I think are the best authors out there. So save your credit for the good ones and if this one happens to be on sale it's worth a try.
Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.
Perrin knows how to start a good story. She just seems to have some problems actually seeing her stories through to the end. This is the second book I've read by her where it just seemed the ending fell flat for me.
Also, I had a hard time caring about Sophie. She came off as brat-ish, and her brat-ish behavior followed her to the end. I did sympathize with her, cheer her on, and feet her pain, but she made it hard sometimes to do so. When I was finally at that point where I thought I could really like her, her shallow behavior ruined that. There seemed to be no real character growth for her. She seemed to think that love was gauged by who bought her the better tennis bracelet. (But I loved all of Perrin's characters in Getting Even, so I know she can write more compelling characters than Sophie.)
I'll continue to read Perrin's works because she can create an intriguing storyline. She just needs to work on her weak endings.
If your in the mood for a sexy, erotic book to take your mind off of everyday problems, jump into
this book. It describes the type of affair that maybe every women desires but with a dangerous kick!! ENJOY
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
This is not for the faint of heart. It is quite graphic both in action/violence as well as sexual situations.
This is my first-I may try another.
This is my first too.
No, the ends are all tied up.
Descriptive & graphic....not a 'feel good' romance.
I loved the story line.
I read the reviews and took a chance anyway and I am glad I did.
This is my very first book from this author and I have already listened to this book from start to finish at least 3 times in 2 days. Just the right amount of hot sex with an awesome story line. I LOVED IT!!!!
I DID NOT think Sofi was selfish, hot sex will have you forgiving even if he slaps your mama. She was just out for fun, it is not her fault the guys feel so hard, Peter never wanted to connect outside of the bedroom, so why is he surprised she did not want him for anything more than for his sex.
Maybe it is because I am a behavioral therapist and have dealt with this type if mental illness. Peter would have been "crazy" even if she never "lead him on".
DO NOT READ THE REST IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS YOURSELF!!!!
Peter killed the cat even when he was not jealous of Andrew (he was jealous of the cat), he wanted to keep her close to him at all times (that had nothing to do with Andrew either) he was just insecure and controlling. Even if Sofi (Bella) did not have any other family, friends or pets outside of "them" she still would have been tired of being locked up at all times.
I was in a relationship like that and I did not have any family, ex-husbands (boyfriends or pets) and still I needed some "breathing room" does that make me selfish?
Thank you Kayla Perrin for such a great and HOT novel. I bought all of your other books. What a great first impression.
My only real complaint was that I would have liked to hear an African American narrator. I has a hard time remembering the characters where African American, because the narrator was clearly not African American. There for it did not put me in the mind set of African Americans but she did a great job never the less.
