Kara has longed for so much more in her relationships but the last time she opened up to a man he left her. So when she sees an old high school crush across the room at a friend’s party she does not know what to do. The minute Dante sees Kara across the room all of the feelings he has for her rise to the surface. Both Dante and Kara feel the attraction between them but fear it as well. The two must decide whether or not they will follow their hearts desire or loose their chance at happiness.

This book is one hot read that burns up the pages. The sparks fly right from the beginning of the story and turn into so much more at the end. The two make a good couple and the love that they share shines through it all. While I enjoyed meeting Dante I found that I did not connect with Kara. She constantly complains about Dante and him not opening up but she is not as open as she could be either. She hinges everything on whether or not Dante will say I love you to her yet she has no qualms about not saying it herself. I did enjoy watching their relationship develop. They must each learn to trust each other and fight for their love. It was nice to see Kara able to enjoy and engage in the kind of relationship she needs and wants and not being berated for it. In Dante she finds not only the perfect Dom but also the perfect man for her.

This was a sexy read that also comes with a love story. The author does a wonderful job of bringing the characters and their world to life. This book may not be a favorite but I do enjoy this author’s work and will be looking for more in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
