excerpt
When I hear Lo bang at the door again, I’m ready to kill her. Hoping she will go away I don’t make any moves to get up, then I hear the banging again. I slowly get up, throw on my shorts, and open the door. I’m ready to give her hell. Until I see Damon standing there.
He reaches down and grabs my right hand lifting it toward his face. My legs almost give out as I watch him insert each of my fingers into his mouth and suck on them.
“The phone wasn’t enough for me.” He backs me into my room, closing the door and locking it again. Damon steps forward and I’m now pressed against the door. “I can’t wait too long to bury my aching dick inside you. I do need to taste that beautiful fucking pussy, though.” He drops down in front of me, yanks my shorts down, and I step out of them quickly. His hands skim up my legs hooking his arms around the back of my knees. I almost fall from the lack of balance when he lifts them up and rests my legs on his shoulders.
His nose runs along my inner thigh and my body heats almost to the point of pain. Damon runs his tongue slowly up the length of my pussy stopping at my clit and sucking it into his mouth. I lift my arms above my head and grab onto the doorframe for support. In doing this I thrust myself toward him more and he groans in appreciation. His fingers join his mouth going to town on my already sensitive area. Before I know what hits me, my legs are starting to tremble in anticipation of my impending orgasm. When he pulls away from me, I whine in disappointment.
He untangles my legs from his shoulders, and stands up. As his arms come up, grab the hem of my shirt and lift it over my head. “How is it possible that I missed you so fucking much when I just saw you earlier.”
I smile, not knowing how to respond to his declaration of feelings. Damon takes my hand and leads me over to my bed, stopping just at the edge of it. My back is now to his front and I can feel his erection pressed against my ass through the thin shorts he has on. I reach behind me and hook my thumbs into his waistband and slowly lower them and myself to the floor. When I stand back up I do it slowly making sure to stick my ass out and trail it over his body.
His fingers grip my hips. “I would love to fucking cherish every inch of you but I want you too damn bad.” Before I can even think of a response, he pulls back and slams into me. “God damn perfect.”

~~ 4.5 “WTH……..” Stars ~~

 

Holy moly…I don’t even know what to say about what I just read.  That ending just about killed me.  I will warn you that if you don’t like cliffhangers, then you should wait until the next book comes out to read this series.  I am not a huge fan of cliffhangers and I generally don’t read reviews before I start a book, so had I known that this book was part of a series and ended the way it did, I would’ve waited to read this book until book 2 was released.  That is the only reason I couldn’t give this book 5 stars.  I truly believe that if a book is part of a series, the reader deserves to know that ahead of time.

 

Now with that all said…..I absolutely LOVED this book!!!  I thought the storyline was fun and intriguing.  I also really liked the characters the author created in this story.  I knew there was a reason that I liked Alexis Noelle’s books….she dives right into the story without adding all the extra stuff we don’t need to read about.  This is really quick read with a good storyline, great characters, and some really steamy scenes.  I only wish it would’ve been a little longer and we would’ve gotten to know more about Damon, but with the bombshell that is dropped later in the story, I can understand why we didn’t.  I can only hope that all my questions are answered in the next book.

 

We meet Jessie and Damon in this book.  Jessie is a broken soul who had a crappy upbringing.  Her parents are drug addicts and are really kind of mean to her.  As she grew up she knew she wanted to get away from that life and go to college to become someone.  Well she realizes that that all takes money she doesn’t have, so she turns to a life as a high class escort.  She has been doing this for three years now and has turned herself into a person who doesn’t let anyone in and is a cold hearted person (it’s what helps her get through her job)  That is until she meets Damon.  He is hired on as her boss and to say that these two don’t hit it off in the beginning is an understatement.  But Damon is not one to back down.  He eventually gets Jessie to open up and break down some of her walls only to turn her world upside down again.  The banter between Jessie and Damon was great.  I loved that Jessie didn’t take any of Damon’s crap and was willing to tell him off.  I also liked that Damon was willing to give up on Jessie even when she tried her darndest to push him away.

 

There was only one secondary character that stood out to me and I loved her just as much as I loved Jessie.  Her name is Lo (Lauren) and she is Jessie’s BFF and roommate.  They have been best friends since they were young and Lo is the only one who knows everything about Jessie.  I loved the bond that these two friends share and Lo’s loyalty to Jessie was amazing.  She is the BFF every person wants.

 

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick and steamy read with a unique storyline.  If you are a fan of Alexis’s books, like I am, then you don’t want to miss this book!!!!  Again if you aren’t a fan of cliffhangers or books with an open ending, then I would wait for the other book to release and then read them together.
