I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.
Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.
One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.
I was given a copy of this amazing story in return for my honest review. Violet was a great character. She is the one we are told to be like. She knows the role she is supposed to play and does her hardest to stick to it. She is is poised, elegant and doesn’t rock the boat. Until him.
Ryder is the street kid that was pulled from the gutter and has begun to make a success out of his life. When his mentor makes a bet with him it is the perfect opportunity for him to ruffle the feathers of the woman that has intrigued him since he met her. Violet is the pinnacle of the untouchable but Ryder knows that he deserves the woman, the job that he craves and the opportunity to showcase his talent. So he takes the bet.
These two characters are breathtaking in the development of their relationship. I am so excited to see where this series goes. Monica Murphy has developed a group of characters that I fell in love with. The romance in this book is hot and Ryder has hands that can make any woman sing.
