His need to possess her is non-negotiable.
Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn't bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.
Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.
Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel's already forbidden relationship survive?
Story Brooks is on the rebound when she ventures to NYC to visit her sick father, enter playboy NYPD hostage negotiator Daniel Chase, he’s the exact opposite of her ex-fiancé and their chemistry is off the charts. Her father tells her to stay away and threatens Daniel away from his daughter, but they can’t keep their hands off each other.
The scenes were blazing hot when these two got alone, be it in a public place or not. I needed an ice cold glass of water to help cool me down. This is definitely not a book for a faint of heart. Ms. Bailey knows how to write a smoking hot sex scene.
Throw in a man who’s never been in love and isn’t sure he’s worthy of love and Daniel Chase stole my heart. I was completely and utterly in love with him by the end of the book. Story is one lucky lady. This story twists and turns and these two flawed but complex characters made this a story that I highly recommend. They both do a lot of growing and stretching of wings and I loved them both.
I recommend this for the steamy sex scenes, the snarky main characters, and the sweet love story at the core.
