This was the first time reading this author for me, I mst admit the cover caught my eye. I pick alot of my reads by the cover art. I think these artists deserve alot of credit. They do amazing work.
This story was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. I glanced through the reviews that it had gotten before reading and I was stumped, they were all over the place. It had a catchy blurb, sounded like fun, so I decided to give it a go.
WOW, I was certainly glad that I did, this story rocked.
Abigail Stephens is the editor for Anthony Tate, she has been his boss and has secretly loved him for four years. She has made him into the superstar household name that he is today. She is a tough editor and a fantastic publicity organizer.
Anthony Tate has been dating Joyce Page a 22 year old off and on for a while when she dumps him again. Abby is his best friend, his confidente and after he sees a newspaper picture of Joyce with a new guy he turns to Abby for comfort. Only this time it gets sexual. Abby is unable to deny him anything, she thinks it is her job to fulfill all of Tony's needs, and she justifies it by saying this is just another need.
"I need this right now" he says.
Surprise, surprise they have the best sex of his life, his little Abby likes things a little rough and they have sex on the couch, the bed and in the shower. But the next day.
"We're not going to talk about this Abby because it is never going to happen again."
Abby and Tony make love constantly, but never talk about it or admit to any emotions. He takes her how he wants, when he wants and where he wants. Abby is totally in love and having the time of her life, until she realizes that he is not sharing with her, that he is just using her, then she is devastated.
I was totally captivated by this story. I thought that it had tremendous depthy to it. Abby was so believable . " I am giving you what you need, because I can't give you what you want. " I loved how there was an element of roughness and a bit of edge to the love scenes. They were certainly steamy.
I appreciated the battle both of them had to come to grips on how they feel and what was ultimately important to them. Joyce the ex-girlfriend shows up and adds a little bit of angst to the story line as well. I loved Abby, she went after what she wanted but then backed away when the depth of feeling was missing. I am unable to provide any more spoilers, I recommend you reading the book yourself to discover the ending. I would rate this book 5/5 and will read more by this author.
