Holding his hand against her heart,

it beat against his palm,

warm, filled with hope and life,

This was my first review on Goodreads and so I’m excited to say that I tried a new to me author on for size and loved her.

After my sister insisted how much I would enjoy a Maya Banks romance, I finally gave in and read this story. I was unsure whether starting at the final book of the series was a smart idea, but I loved it and I’m not sure that I would have felt the same after reading the first three in the series.

So basically the story went as follows: Boy meets girl. Boy wants girl. Boy tells girl he wants to screw her – one night only – and of course girl agrees (apparently he’s incredibly sexy and rich). Boy takes girl to his mansion for a night of amazingly hot sex. All night. And it was all good until she gets knocked up. That’s where the story turns and my heart hurt from there on out.

I must say my heart truly ached for like 95% of this story. As soon as their night of passion ended, it was a continual downward spiral, inching back up numerous times, only to force you farther down the spiral. I wanted to pay attention to the POV of the characters and the quality of writing, which I must say was very good, but I couldn’t stay focused on that because I was too drawn in to the storyline. I read this story in one night. I stayed up into the early wee hours to finish it because I couldn’t stop without knowing what was going to happen. (more…)
