Nikki Carmichael is confused. Her head’s telling her one thing while her heart is sending another message.
She believed her first husband, Sky, was her Prince Charming. They got married expecting to live their happily ever after, but the happiness dwindled right along with their checking account. Their divorce legally ended the marriage, but not the love and uncontrollable desire between them.
Then she meets Jeff. He’s hotter than an August day in Florida, and can offer her everything she’s always thought she wanted.
Jeff is committed to his life as a bachelor, but his high-powered nature has finally brought him to a crossroads. He’s face-to-face with a quandary; his decisions will affect his professional and personal life forever.
Nikki’s tenacious efforts to live a dream life, while still keeping her heart shielded, are coupled with wrestling an ongoing dilemma – her heart still belongs to Sky.
But Nikki isn’t the only one who’s twisted by desire.
As I stood, Jeff placed his hand on my lower back, which was the equivalent to pushing the floodgate button while touching me with an electric wand. I inhaled slow and deep. The tingles radiated through me. I could feel the wetness breaching the tiny silk barrier. After staring into his inviting eyes and listening to his deep, husky voice throughout dinner, I longed for him to kiss me.
We walked out to the car, where the perfect gentleman opened my door for me. Before I was able to lower myself into my seat, he stroked my face with his hands, our eyes fixed on each other. I tilted my head slightly into his hand as he caressed me with the gentlest touch. Is he reading my mind? I was waiting for him to lean in and kiss me. I leaned forward and held my gaze on him, wanting his mouth to consume mine, waiting to taste him. Instead, he pulled back. I sighed and sat down, and once I was situated in my seat, he shut the door. Fuck, fuck, FUCK!
Get ready for a ride with this one because you will not even be able to tell that this fabulous book is actually a debut! I was immediately caught into the novel and refused to let go until the very end. Yes it is part of trilogy but it is well worth the wait. By the end of the book all I had to say is talk about a Love triangle! Trust me love triangles when done right in my opinion can make a book and the author did just that. The flow of the story is impeccable and you can even tell whenever Nikki is having that inter turbulence going on because she doesn’t know who to choose. Nikki realized that she had to make a decision when it came to her marriage and even though there is a child involved she did what was best. However, trust me that doesn’t stop these two from still going into old habits of falling into the bed together. Sky, he is hot young and her ex-husband, yes there are still feelings but he obviously wasn’t ready to take that next step in life. Now, she met Jeff, good lord, he definitely knows what her body wants and is exactly what she needs. Only thing is as I said before her inter turbulence is preventing her from choosing one over the other. You get taken to a whole new high with this one because you’re given more than just a love story. As the name of the book says, you will see twists, there is definitely plenty of desire and trust me there is an abundance of lust when you fall into this story. However, can Nikki make the right choice that is the question and you will just have to read this amazing debut novel to see how it unfolds! This author has definitely brought you on the brink of a book hangover with just this one book and trust me you can wait a short few weeks for the other one as the story continues.
