New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy begins a sexy new contemporary romance series—perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—that introduces three sisters born to wealth, raised to succeed, ready to love, destined to make waves.
I've moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.
Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I've never felt before.
One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn't want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren't pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.

It was contradicting and left a lot of empty story lines that would have enriched the plot. You shouldn't have someone that is made to have such a fragile past and have her enjoy getting bruised and beaten during sex. Also there was nothing besides sex and I can't stand when authors try to make that into a love story...it's not. It was a whirlwind lust fest with no depth for a relationship to form. They introduced so many characters that had so much potential to develop into back story and wind around the main plot to make it more interesting but instead they were introduced and teased into the plot then left hanging that just left us with more questions. They made a deal about a character getting out of jail, then left him to be a boring random paragraph and didn't involve him further into a twist or a rescue scene that could have formed. I think my imagination after the characters were introduced is what made this so disappointing. They could have done so much more. It had great potential, but fell short. Another thing is it started with two main villains but only partial explained the backstory of the male and I was more curious about the girl who was really the main villain. Finally it seemed that the people that were all fighting to go overseas for the promotion had very different job functions so how could they possibly be fighting for the same position. Then it ends and you really don't know who went where and did what which was the fight behind the whole book. I gave this book one star.
I started a blog so I can look back and see my life through the eyes of the books I read. A book a day keeps reality away!
