“What gives you a thrill Kristen?”

The minute I saw Vincent Sorenson, I knew he was trouble. Billionaire. Bad boy. And dangerously sexy. He was everything I craved, and nothing I needed.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t just avoid him. The higher ups at my company decided they needed his business, and I was on the team to bring him in. Vincent Sorenson didn’t seem as interested in business as he was in me, but I knew that was a door better left unopened. If I got involved with him, it would only unearth the pain I spent years trying to bury.

I thought I had it under control, but I seriously underestimated Vincent’s seductive charm and silver-tongue. I would soon find out how delicious it would feel to let myself fall into this forbidden surrender.

My Review:

West took a done to death genre and gave it a new twist to create something fully her own. Her smooth yet captivating writing combines with her interesting descriptions to paint a picture of the various scenes for the audience. There were definitely a few ‘holy hell Hannah’ moments in this one. These were always perfectly placed to draw you further into a scene or to make you realise how intense these two characters were with regards to each other.

The two main characters in this novel were quite well developed. You get to know them well as individuals. They never become one of ‘those couples’ who are indistinguishable as individuals. It’s quite refreshing. Considering the short length of this story the supporting cast was also adequately developed.

Overall, I quite enjoyed the story. There was a unique amount of compromise in the relationship between the two characters, with each coming out on top at the end. But I definitely have to wonder about the ending. It’s a ‘what happens now’ moment. It’s one of those cliff-hangers that just leaves you sitting there for a moment wondering where the ending went. Without this, I would have definitely considered a 5 star rating for this novella.
