Review Submitted By: Korena Reviewer for Alpha Book Review
Rock bottom has just made a new friend: Janet Raeven. Unemployed and recently divorced from her abusive husband, she’s trying to get her life back in order. Despite her mother’s insistence that a man can cure her of all her problems, she knows that’s the last thing she needs right now.
Enter multi-millionaire Hayden Lancaster. He’s hot. He’s charming. And everything about him turns her on. Her attempts at fighting her attraction to him fail miserably. She can’t get him off her mind, and she’s having a hard time keeping her clothes on when he’s around. As she submits to her attraction, he draws her into his over-the-top lifestyle of fancy cars, lavish parties, and exotic vacations. But along with this lifestyle comes a long list of exes and one-night-stands. Janet can’t compete with these models, beauty queens, and heiresses, and the more she encounters, the more it seems Hayden is luring her into his life so that she can end up just another ex-lover. He claims she means more to him than the others, but if this is a game, she’s losing, and this defeat might just be too much for her to handle.
(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)
Janet Raeven is an alcoholic who attends AA meetings weekly. Enters Hayden Lancaster in the AA meetings. Janet finds attraction with Hayden but does not want interaction with any male because of her abusive ex-husband. Hayden helps Janet after a car accident. Hayden and Janet finds each other attractive. Janet finds out Hayden is a manwhore. Janet fights her will to stay away from Hayden. Hayden lures Janet back.
The entire story is a tug-a-war with insecurities and arrogance. I didn’t like the insecurities of Janet and the arrogance of Hayden. The story did not flow.
It was hard to finish. Poor writing. 3 stars was too high.
