I'd Set out to capture him and instead he'd captured me. I couldn't fight it. It was done.
I've had this book on my TBR Shelf for quite some time now. Kept meaning to read it, but just never got to it. Then it came up for one of my challenges on my group, and watching my friends comments, I knew I had to read it. And so I did.

This book was a slow start for me. There was so many characters being introduced, so many background stories being introduced, that it was, at first, hard for me to get into the meat of the story.

But then it happened, that magical moment when a book turns the corner. When it goes from a "meh-fest" to an adrenaline rush. I was wide awake and taking notice.
Reeve and Emily... I had a love/hate relationship with them both. But when they came together (yes, that's a double entendre), it was pretty hot! And explosive! (another double entendre).
When Emily thought to herself, "the dominating bad boy type was my weakness", I could totally get behind that... and it was the turn around for me with Reeve. He was the "bad boy", and he became my "weakness" pretty damn quick!
The scene in the barn... read the book, you'll totally get it... was probably one of my favorite erotic scenes *ever* in a book! Sex scenes, sometimes I feel they are just thrown into a book for the sake of sex. I know that in order for a book to be in a certain genre (erotica in this case), that it has to have... well... sex! in it. And often. But most of the sex in this book was well placed, it made sense, the timing was perfect, and it was hot!

I enjoyed this book and will continue on to Last Kiss.
