Another one knocked out of the park from LRJ!
I went into this novel right at bedtime intending to lose a few hours and relax and ended up reading well into the wee hours of the night high on the words I was inhaling.
LRJ threw us a curve ball with the outplay of this book. Each chapter felt like the close of a day and with that left the unfolded urge to know what happens next. I couldn’t stand to go to sleep and not be able to see where these two took it to next.
Then, there is the fact of the two main characters themselves. I love a good angst read like any of the rest of you, but on the flip side I love reading a novel that is true to age. The characters are in their 30’s in this book and they know what they like and what they want. They don’t mess around with useless hidden agendas. These are two smart lasers who lay out what they want and go from there.
Plus, when you do away with all that angst you end up with a whole lot more room in the book for the really good stuff.
A high stakes law read with a murder you are itching to solve and two characters you are hoping from page after page. I ate this book up.
If you are a LRJ fan, you are going to love this read. I felt like it combined all the little things we love about Lisa’s writing from the actual writing, to the hanging unmentionables. 5 HUGE stars.
DIRTY, RICH ONE NIGHT STAND.
That’s all it was supposed to be. Her. Him. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye. He’s a stranger. And yet, he’s not. She knows him even though he doesn’t know her.
He’s the powerful attorney, now world-renowned after coming off the trial of a century which was publicized across the country. And I’m one of the reporters that sat in his courtroom.
I watched him, studied him, got to know him from afar which isn’t hard since I know his exact brand of confidence, arrogance, and wealth.
I know his type. I’ve dated his type. Which is why when I happen to come face to face with him, when sparks fly and heat simmers between us, I know what happens if I say “yes” to Reese Summer.
I know he’ll taste like sin and sex, even before he kisses me.
I know he’ll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.
I know he’ll demand more than I want to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.
I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated.
And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.
And so, I do.
And so, he follows.
And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?
