Review of New Release
Bright. Dedicated. Loyal.
The day I walked into his boardroom, I had no idea my life was about to change forever. It was supposed to be a simple proposal that would catapult my career. The chance to help Hurst & McCoy save one of their flailing business lines seemed simple enough. However, I never expected that one look at Maxwell McCoy would have me grasping for control. He’s demanding, charming, powerful; most of all he’s beautiful, inside and out. As hard as I fought against the attraction, he broke down my defenses. But he’s hiding things. Even when secrets, lies, and greed threaten everything I have worked so hard for, I couldn’t walk away. There’s no denying, the moment my eyes landed on Maxwell McCoy was the moment I became his.
Rich. Brilliant. Powerful.
People only see me as CEO of Hurst & McCoy. The ruthless businessman whose mere presence demands respect. People don’t know I chose to leave a life I loved in order to protect my father’s legacy and reputation. When my company’s future was threatened, I had no choice but to seek assistance. The day Stella Sullivan walked into my boardroom was the day my heart started beating again. One business proposal, from the topaz-eyed beauty, changed my life. She tried to deny our unyielding chemistry, but I wouldn’t. I should let her go, but I didn’t.
The smokescreen I created soon comes crashing down, forcing me to fight for everything I love.
*Due to graphic language and explicit sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 18+.
I am not kidding. I was holding my breath as I read their first encounter. The words on the page create the atmosphere in that boardroom so accurately it plays in your head like a movie. Kudos to Stella for gathering her wits enough to make her presentation and defend why her PR Company is the one that can best provide the services Maxwell's company needs.
This is a romantic thriller. We have a plot line full of mystery and thrills, while our couple weaves a courtship and love affair not to rivaled. Their attraction is palpable, but Stella does not want to be just another conquest. She makes Max work for her affection. She forces him to slow down and consider what he wants and realize Stella is not like the other women he has been used to.
There is jealousy, greed, kidnapping, federal investigation, drugs... you name it, it is there. This is a complex plot that moves fast and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I love Max. Once he realizes he loves Stella, watch out, he is a protective bear that will take no prisoners. If you love romance and thrills, you cannot go wrong with this story.
