it rained, the smog disappeared and they headed to The Great Wall. On the way there, they bought a backpack and filled it with food and water and a bottle of champagne, and they hiked up and down the winding wall for two hours, leaving the other tourists behind.
over the months, sneaking away to her old room at her parents’ house or locking the door at the office when the mood presented. Risky, naughty, so unlike her but so incredibly hot, and since they hadn’t seen another soul for a long time, Rebecca jumped on him.
blasted through her and left her crumbling in its wake.
Nathan Butler knows the score. People like him don’t get to be happy. They don’t belong.
Raised by his drug-addicted mother, Nate was kicked around a lot and abandoned and disappointed so many times he can’t afford to care about anyone or anything, his existence a tedious, monotonous two-step. Quick, quick, slow, slow, run, run, walk, walk. Over and over again.
Until he meets Mason Lord. Mase is the only person who manages to crack Nate’s defenses. For the first time in his shitty life, Nate has a real friend. He trusts Mase and even grows to love him, but like always, it doesn’t last.
Killed in a tragic work accident, Mase’s death is just one more disappointment. And when the company refuses to accept responsibility for it, Nate’s heartache turns to hate and he vows to make it right the only way he knows how.
For Rebecca Fox, a beautiful and talented corporate attorney, Mason Lord’s death is simply an accident. Despite the very believable eyewitness testimony from the drop-dead gorgeous Nathan Butler, she successfully defends the company against a wrongful death lawsuit, upping her chances of becoming a full partner at the most prestigious law firm in San Francisco.
The partnership is all she wants, the cornerstone of her long-term plan. Then Nathan Butler unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep and changes everything, her life becoming a thrilling, titillating playground instead of a dull obstacle course to navigate oh-so carefully.
Yet nothing is as it seems. A collision of desires and worlds, a twisted two-step, but what Rebecca doesn’t know can’t hurt her.
Or can it?
“He awakened parts of her she didn’t know had been sleeping.”
“He thought he’d left his past behind, but what he was really doing was leaving behind the people from his past.”
I love Julia Bramer, but I wanted to message her with shouty capped obscenities while I was reading her latest works – as she squeezed, twisted, and kind of broke my heart. The plot is intriguing, the story is well crafted, and the writing – sizzling hot. Revenge, betrayal, infidelity, compounded lies, disappointments, heart break, caustic mothers, bad childhood, death, law suits, toxic families, volcanically hot sensual scenes, evil schemes, blackmail – wow – Julia Bramer’s family better watch their backs as she is a bit of an evil genius! I was anxious, then I was ecstatic, then I was crushed, then I was devastated. She gave me a glimmer of hope, only to snuff it out again. ARG! Finally, after several epiphanies, a bit of flip-flopping, mind games, rationalizations, justifications, and even more lies and deception… well, I am not sure what to think about the ending just yet… This one is going to stay with me for a while. While it concluded with my desired end result, it was costly and not at all a clean solution, but yet it worked. Hmm, like I said – she’s an evil genius.
