I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This is a fantastic erotic romance! I loved it!
Elle is a fantastic character. She is an attorney, who is dedicated to her work (basically a workaholic!). She thinks she is happy with her life, but then she meets Nico and her life will never be the same again.
Nico "The Lady Killer" Hunter is also a fantastic character! He is an Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter. A freak accident broke his spirit, but when he meets Elle, he knows that she is worth fighting for.
I have read other books by this author, so when the opportunity to read this book came up, I snatched it with both hands! I'm glad I did, because this is a fantastic story! I was completely hooked from the first page! The chemistry between Elle and Nico took my breath away! The story is told from both points of view, and gives the reader insight into their thoughts and feelings. I really liked both of these characters. Nico is an uber sexy male, but he also has a tender side that he rarely shows to anyone except his closest friends and family. Elle is warm and caring, but she is hiding a secret. There are also some memorable characters that bring this story to life. I really liked Preach, Nico's trainer and friend, and Regina, Elle's friend and receptionist at the firm she works at. Each character is unique and very lifelike! I kept expecting them to walk through my door! I must admit that I don't watch contact sports like boxing, wrestling or mixed martial arts, but the author's descriptions had me picturing the fights quite clearly and held me in thrall!
Vi Keeland has written another fast paced erotic romance that kept me hooked from start to finish! I am looking forward to reading the next book written by this author!
As this is an erotic romance, there are several scenes of a sexual nature that are explicit. Therefore, I do not recommend this book for readers younger than 17. However, if you love hot, steamy erotic romances, this book is for you! - Lynn Worton
