FIVE OUTSTANDINGLY BRIGHT STARS.
Reviewed by Tracey Lou on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever.
If I were able to, I would have given this book more than five glowing stars. I was 4% in and totally hooked when I was thrown into a scene that got me all flustered and reaching for that glass of wine to cool down. Wow, it was red hot; he was hot, I was hot! The sexual tension between the two characters was just electric!
Gia Mastro is a complex young woman with a secret. Eva! Gia’s mother’s only aim in life is to have a rich husband to keep her in the comfort that she has become accustomed to. Sadly, she also wants this kind of life for her daughter Gia, and has also practically brainwashed her into believing that this is what she wants. Gia has been working for Gunner Esq, in the hope that one day she will catch the eye of his gorgeous rocker son, Abel Gunner.
Abel Gunner. Lead singer with the band Lethal Abel. And oh boy, is he one lethal A-One dominant alpha male rocker. Furthermore, this sex on legs guy has an attitude. He dons a piercing and an interesting tattoo which drive the ladies wild. Abel loves women! And they love him, too! A man who packs a lethal punch everywhere he goes, is a dream come true for many. He knows what he wants, gets what he wants, and he has decided he wants Gia. Nothing and no one is going to get in his way either.
The story between Abel and Gia is not a smooth one. Obviously all her dreams have come true as this was what she has been striving for; to snare Abel Gunner. The two come together under a Dom/Sub contract and that is the start of this scorching hot story. Abel becomes the perfect Dom. He’s loving but very jealous if someone so much as touches or looks at Gia. She loves the attention she receives from Gunner and the sex is…phew, unbelievable! Her feelings towards Gunner begin to change when she falls in love. Her mother is always in the background and frequently called Medusa in the book! Much more fitting because not only is she an evil and jealous woman, but she also threatens to tell Abel everything. Gunner begins to realize that Gia is the woman for him; however, there is someone from his past threatening his happiness. Alas, the stirrings of a jealously bitter woman holds no bounds and the grief she brings is heart-wrenching for both characters.
This is where the story finishes on a cliffhanger. I wasn’t expecting it to come to such an abrupt end, but I felt this was the right path for it to go.
I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed this book which was well written, has a great story line, and Abel and Gia just steamed up the pages.
Thank you Ms. Whitney for one of the most enjoyable reads I’ve put my hands on this year. And I must add that I read it twice!
