Rylee Thomas is used to being in control. But she’s about to meet the one man that just might make her enjoy losing it…
I am the exception to the rule.
In a world full of willing women, I’m a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He’s the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track.
Colton crashes into my life like a tornado: sapping my control, testing my vulnerabilities beyond their limits, and unintentionally penetrating the protective wall around my healing heart. Tearing apart the world I rebuilt so carefully with structure, predictability, and discipline.
I can’t give him what he wants and he can’t give me what I need. But after a glimpse beneath his refined exterior into the dark secrets of his damaged soul, can I bring myself to walk away?
Our sexual chemistry is undeniable. Our individual need for complete control is irrefutable. But when our worlds collide, is the chemistry enough to bring us together or will our untold secrets and battle of wills force us apart?
My ****4 Star**** Review
First I’m going to have to say that this is very 50 Shades fan fiction as 50 Shades is Twilight fan fic. So, keep that in mind coming into it, because you will see LOADS of similarities. Some of you will love that, and some will hate it.
For me, it was fine. I didn’t expect it going in, but I hadn’t read any reviews prior to reading this either.
It opens with an intriguing first scene and kept me interested from that point forward. It’s an easy fast-paced read.
I felt connected to both Rylee and Colton, but there were many times that I was completely agitated with their behavior. I found myself asking why Rylee didn’t question this, or why isn’t Rylee pissed? But, when Rylee and Colton are hooking up there’s plenty of steaminess. There’s also a couple moments where Colton let his sweet side loose and had me sighing.
So, while these characters held my connection and kept me cheering me on, they also frustrated me. With the major cliffhanger I had to immediately pick up the second book in the trilogy, though.
