One moment, six years ago. The night she made the world around me so much more than just a blur. Now it's the catalyst that threatens to tear us apart. Our happily was supposed to be ever after. So why do I feel like it's slipping through my fingers? How can one moment, when our world seemed so right, resurface and cause our perfect life to spiral out of control? I can't lose her; she's my checkered flag.

i read the first three Driven books but listened to this one. i think yhe writing was very descriptive and really told the depth of characters.

Listening vs reading the story in this case I think was difficult to me. There was a LOT of internal dialog that would happen after a comment that made me want to tell the character to shut up and just answer the question or respind to the person. i get that the depths of the characters can and mostly do happen when we get the glimpse into their thoughts during different scenes, but these seemed to drag on and on and on to the point you just didn't care anymore because you were starting to forget the impetus for the internal dialog.

Perhaps reading it would have been better. I tend to "see" the story playing out and maybe that is what made the time lapse over shadow the scene, but not sure.

The long reaching impact of a father's choices are played out in this series. The basic issues are the same for all the Dare siblings but each story does play out differently. They each get their happy ending but their partners have their own issues that play into the relationship as well.

intrested to read about the Dare cousins in NYC next.

It was just a typical Monday. Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client. After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. Or so I thought, until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch to. My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance. And that was the good part of my day. Because the gorgeous man who crouched down and looked at me like he wanted to eat me alive was none other than my ex.

Interesting characters AND a social responsibility plot line combined to make a really good story.

Take a vacation, they said. Get away from Silicon Valley's backstabbing and power-grabbing. Recharge the innovative batteries. Unwind, then come back stronger than ever. Instead, I got lost at sea and fell in love with an antisocial lobsterman. There's one small issue: Owen Bartlett doesn't know who I am. Who I really am.

This is not my usual sub-genre of romance, but I did enjoy the story. The beginning was a little trite but as the story progessed the character development got more in depth and had me pulling for Owen and Cole's HEA.

The ending was not over the topand fit well with the reat of the story.

Meeting Beth Harrison in the first-class cabin of my flight from Chicago to London throws me for a loop, and everything I know about myself and women goes out the window. I'm usually good at reading people, situations, the markets. I know instantly if I can trust someone or if they're lying. But Beth is so contradictory and confounding, I don't know which way is up.

Sebastian York could read the dictionary and make me want to listen.

However, Ms. Bay has a wonderful story that is the basis of a good book. Beth's character is perfectly flawed and while I did not connect directly with her vice, the insecurities and vulnerability were definitely something many people share, even if not connected to an addiction.

Ms Sinclair is an excellent storyteller. Atticus and Gin have things in their past (don't we all) that affect the development of their relationship. The story has a natural progressive development but the past is not overcome lightly.

Ms Sinclair gives enough detail to appreciate the situations but not going overboard or trating the situations too lightly.

Love the big girl panty wedgie reference!

Happy Reading. :)

This is one of my favorite Shadowlands stories.
The dynamic between Uzuri and her two doms is off the charts hot. The development of what they overcome to make their Triad work given past histories is one of the things that made the story so good.

I'm getting really good at cutting my losses. First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can't catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I'm determined to succeed. That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time...practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.
