Synopsis

He can read her like a book. But will he give her a happy ending?

Dawn: I’d do anything to keep my bookstore. It’s a safe place for all women, somewhere to let their freak flags fly. I call it sex-positive. The menfolk call it smut. That’s how I met Rory Parker, the local billionaire trying to shut me down on behalf of the “moral majority.” He walked in with an offer I couldn’t refuse . . . except I did. Now Rory wants to play dirty. Well, he picked the wrong bookseller. Let’s see how much support he still has after people get a load of the little movie I recorded of the two of us going at it like wild animals in my shop.

Rory: I couldn’t care less how Dawn Nolan makes her money. The only thing I care about is how much she’s making. Her bookstore isn’t the kind of upscale attraction my investors want in this sleepy little tourist trap, so it’s got to go. But when Dawn personally finds out how I treat bad girls who misbehave, she seems to enjoy it as much as I do. Now I just need to destroy the copies of that video she’s threatening to post—as soon as I stop watching it. The trouble is, when I’m with her, all I want to do is get started on the sequel.”

Review

This is one of those books that spiked my interest, based on the blurb, but just was not for me in the novel. Don’t get me wrong, this was not a bad book, it was just very intense for me. Much of the romance I read is historical with more subtle actions, whereas this one was quite energetic.

It gives me a bit of a fifty shades vibes, as far as a rich guy and poor girl, but not much further than that, there is little BDSM in this book. Overall this just was not the book for me. I feel I would have liked it more if there were less sex and more emotional connection.
