Description from the publisher:
I am not the child my father wanted. He's hated me since the day I was born because I'm not a boy. I was never good enough for him, until I met Stefan. Not that it earned me my father's love, but being with a man my father adored, made my life easier. I thought Stefan was my forever. Until an afternoon of unanswered calls revealed he wasn't the man I believed he was. I had nowhere to turn except into the arms of a stranger. Dylan Prescott, the mega billionaire, playboy...my co-worker. The one man I'd sworn I'd never have anything to do with. In my moment of weakness he was strong. Could he save me from my past or will his own secrets destroy us before we even get started?
During the interview for her first job after completing her college degree, Brooke meets Dylan, aka "the sex god." Dylan is a competing body-builder who is seven years her junior, and the attraction is mutual. When faced with betrayal by her current boyfriend, she texts Dylan to assist her in getting away. He acts the part of her white knight, but his secrets may doom their relationship before it can begin.
I read this book in one sitting. It is a fast-paced novella with a very good tale to be told. Some parts did seem to be rushed. I think it would benefit author and reader to take the time to develop the relationships and situations that are being presented. There were also some questions of realism. I understand that this is fiction, but nobody is going to pay off a million dollars of debt in 17 years working at a print shop. That being said, I did love the story and the characters. The next book in the series, PROMISCUOUS, will be my next read and I'm looking forward to the secrets that will be revealed and more of Brooke and Dylan's strong temperaments.
