OMG OMG OMG!!! This book BLEW my socks off…and my shirt… and my pants…

There really aren’t enough words in the English language to describe how unbelievably sexy this book was.

Please allow me to introduce you to William Maddox Lambourne and Catherine “Cat” Kelly. They are both gorgeous in their own right but William…Oh EM GEE!

“That face-those eyes. He had dark brown hair, wavy and thick and tousled. It was sexy hair. The kind of hair a man sports after he’s been rolling around in bed.”

I am picturing Chris Pine here, mostly for his strikingly sexy blue grey eyes MEOW

Cat was smokin hot as well!

Cat is a photographer that is going through a tough time in her life after to loss of her first husband Jace.

William is a billionaire food aficionado and is obsessed with getting Cat into his bed…and into his heart.

I have heard people say that this book is like 50 Shades of Grey but it is OH SO MUCH MORE! There is a lot of character development and it really makes William and Cat more relatable. I loved the relationship between Cat and her best friend Beckett…reminded me of my friendship with my best guy friend.

The scene with Cat, William and the pain au chocolat will go down in infamy as the number one fantasy that will keep recurring in my dreams…

There are so many parts of this story I loved, EVEN the cliffhanger ending (I cannot wait for the next book in the series!)

Some of my favs:

“What kind of burglar turned on the lights and cooked dinner? Dropping my bags at the door, I walked and arrowed for the kitchen. I stepped inside and halted because he was there.”

“‘That’s the last time you’ll open your mouth to another man’, he said, his voice husky and seductive. I couldn’t stop the tremor of pleasure that raced through me at his sey tone. ‘From now on, I’m the only man that feeds you.’ My skin where his breath touched it fired in response, and I squirmed in my seat. His closeness and his voice turned me on, but I didn’t appreciate his warning. Who the hell did he think he was? Did other women tolerate this sort of behavior?”

“I lifted the gift from the box and stood, allowing the floor-length silk dress to cascade to the floor. “Oh, Beckett.” I sighed. No one had ever given me surprise gifts, and no one had ever given me something like this”

“‘Every girl, and some guys, I know would love to be in your shoes. Youre Julia-fucking-Roberts in Pretty Woman. But prettier, of course. You are William Maddox Lambourne’s girlfriend.’ Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. The comparison resonated. And the real question remained-was I the princess or the whore?”

This book was seriously sexy, deliciously hot and over-the-top AH-MAZING!

Highly recommended for my fans of erotic romance!

5 out out 5 stars!!!

Jocelyn Butler is a woman who has lost everything in her life…

Braden Carmichael is a man who wants what he seemingly cannot have…

Together, the two will break down walls, learn from one another and ultimately find a love neither one was prepared for…

Let me just tell you, I have a serious addiction to books set in Ireland and Scotland. I am envisioning a nice Gerard Butler-esque portrayl for Mr. Braden Carmichael…

YUMMMMMMY

I imagined a version of Jennifer Lawrence for Jocelyn. Snarky, Gorgeous and a GREAT RACK!

This book starts off hot and steamy, literally… Braden walks in on Jocelyn fresh out of the shower. YOWZA

There are some lines in the book that legit almost made me drop my kindle in excitement, such as:

“Babe, nice lingerie is for seducing a man. I’m already fucking seduced.” -Braden Carmichael

WannaBeAlone

“We fuck, we have fun, and then we spoon. I don’t go home…” -Braden Carmichael

itsMyTHING

And then there were the ones that just made me cry…

“Sometimes the clouds weren’t weightless. Sometimes their bellies got dark and full. It was life. It happened. It didn’t mean it wasn’t scary, or that I wasn’t still afraid, but now I knew that as long as I was standing under it with Braden beside me when those clouds broke, I’d be alright.” -Jocelyn Butler

hands

“I feel like I’m missing something really important when you’re gone. So important I don’t feel like myself. I’ve never felt like someone was mine before. But you’re mine, Jocelyn. I’ve known that from the moment we met. And I’m yours. I don’t want to be anyone else’s, babe.” -Braden Carmichael

cry

There is a really sweet friendship between Braden’s sister and Jocelyn and that too made me cry…

All in all, I would have to say that I most definitely recommend this book. It reminds us what it means to lose the ones we love and our hope and faith in life…only to find it all over again in the least expected of places.
