On the Flap
“I’m loving every second of this,” I whisper.
“Did I say you could speak?” His eyebrows rise.
I smile and shake my head, sucking on my lips to stop myself from saying No, sir. Sorry, sir. Anything you say, sir.
Brendan and Annie have fallen hard for each other, but someone’s about to come and burst that bubble. Can a lie be forgiven?
This is the fifth book in a serial romance. You must read the others first to be able to understand what’s going on in this one. You can see my reviews of the previous books: Throbbing Hearts, Reaching Hearts, Crushing Hearts, and Tempting Hearts.
I am still head over heels for this series. It has never stalled and only continues to impress as being suspenseful, erotic, and romantic. It’s much like the classic soap operas of yesteryear but without the overacting.
The book picks up with Tommy and Rebecca’s liaison. It’s now known that he’s a very bad man, but he continues to unleash new levels of evil. Rebecca is still a bit disturbing seeing what a scorn woman will do
Annie and Brendan seem to be going along swimmingly. They’re enjoying each other. He’s completely opening up to her and feeling things he didn’t even have with his college girlfriend. For the first time in years and perhaps ever, he wants and can imagine a future with someone.
Christiano makes a small appearance in this book. I can’t figure out where he still fits in. While in the peripheral to the main plot, his character still possesses the ability to turn things upside down. One last morsel, there is a return of a character from Throbbing Hearts who changes the game.
Just when I thought the elusive realization/confrontation between Annie and Brendon was going to happen, it didn’t. Crisis adverted. But then, it did happen! Maybe I’m a glutton for punishment or perhaps more aptly I wanted it to transpire because we all know it will. Now it’s like ripping the band aid off. Let the drama from her identity concealment occur, so they can move on. The unfortunate part is this one ends without a resolution to the scene. Perhaps even more unnerving to me is the sentence in the author’s note where it states the next and sixth installment will be the final in this series. I can’t even wrap my head around how everything can possible reconcile in just one more episode.

I have a large appetite for books with pensive alpha males. I tend to lean towards erotica and contemporary romance. I am completely addicted to my Kindle and feel naked when it’s not with me. If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them. I’m a single-ish woman with two crazy dogs. I also love football and basketball. Living in Oklahoma City, my teams are the Thunder and Sooners.
