Caleb Blackstone is no stranger to getting what he wants.  He’s wealthy beyond belief and grew up in a life of privilege.  None of that matters when he meets the woman of his dreams.  When he meets Brooke Casterley, everything in him changes.  Brooke’s life is the exact opposite of Caleb’s and she’s definitely not looking for love.  Regardless, she can’t deny their attraction.  What happens when these two give in to their desires?  You’ll have to read it to find out!

What I liked:  The hero, Caleb Blackstone is super sweet and romantic.  He’s the type of man women dream of.  Caleb is handsome, wealthy, down to earth, caring, and considerate.  This book doesn’t slouch in the heroine department either.  Brooke Casterley is broken, but still standing.  She’s sweet, caring, honest, and kind.  I loved these two together!  The level of feeling and emotions presented in this story was perfection.  The relationship development was organic and didn’t feel forced.  I developed a connection with these two characters.  The ending was completely unexpected and gave me a bit of the drama I was missing throughout.

What didn’t work for me: As I mentioned above, I would have liked a little more angst or conflict.  There was no major drama until the end.  However, that was only a small detraction.

Audiobook review:  This dual POV book is narrated by Jeremy York and Sienna Francis.  I really appreciate the decision to have a male and female narrator.  Each narrator did a decent job.  It’s not the best audiobook I’ve listened to, but definitely not the worst.  I’d recommend the audio version.

Overall, this is a great read.  It’s super sweet and very entertaining.  There are several intriguing secondary character storylines that I hope are written very soon.  Raine Miller has written an amazing book and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from her soon!  I recommend this series to readers who love super sexy and sweet leading men.

I rate it – four-stars .
