This novel is written by Kristen Proby, an author you may have remembered from my last review. After I read her short novella in Baby, It’s Cold Outside, I knew that I needed to read more. I was intrigued by her writing style as it moves in first person from character to characters. I was interested to see how this one would turn out. This is her second book in the series and I simply could not find the first. I was not disappointed. Here is a brief background of the novel provided by goodreads: Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he’s your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy…among other things, and it won’t happen again. Jules won’t risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.
Nate McKenna could give a shit about the no fraternizing policy. He wants Jules and he’ll have her. The rules could bend around them, or be damned. He’s not a man to be taken lightly, and Jules Montgomery is about to find out just how he responds to being pushed aside after the best night of sex he’s ever had. She can fight all she wants, but he’ll have her in his bed in the end.
This novel was written in Jules’ perspective. I thought that was very interesting. Yet, although it was written in her perspective it almost seems like it’s not because of what the character tells you about the other characters and their reactions. It is almost like you are the character and are feeling what she is feeling. I really enjoyed this novel far better than I thought I would. The story is slow-moving. But the characters are moving at lightning speed and yet i would not change a thing. This book seems more realistic than all others. They have relationship problems that are real and happen to a lot of couples, they also deal with crappy ex’s, work relationships, and the fear of letting your guard down. I thought this was a really good book to get your feet wet with the different characters.
As for the sex, I felt that it was overly much. Almost every other scene is a sex scene, I think it could have done without so much but I also understand that it makes sense this way. Its more real. Its more about their physical relationship at first than their intimate one. I did think the sex scenes were nice and steamy. They were not lacking anything. They were filled with emotions as you are only getting one side, but its more than that. Its something that I cannot quite explain in words. It has the emotions that leave you vulnerable and breathless, but also makes you feel like you are going to melt in a puddle of yourself. I cannot wait to read what’s next for these two.
Overall I give this novel a 4 out of 5. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel and I cannot wait to read more from this author. I hope to have this series finished by the start of the new year. Wish me luck on that.
