Ten years of wanting. Ten years of waiting. Now Eva Beaumont and Lucas Waring have one chance to satisfy everything they’ve ever wanted from each other… Enjoy their explosively sexy reunion in this enthralling romance from reader favorite Rachael Stewart.
This is my moment. Tonight, among the glitter and champagne and those who are vying for a piece of my business, it’s perfect. Gloriously so. Then Lucas Waring walks in, and one glance from his dark, intense eyes gives me the same jarring bolt of awareness I always felt when I saw him. Careful, Eva. After all, Lucas Waring is the Beaumont family’s worst nightmare…
He used to be my brother’s best friend—before he broke my eighteen-year-old heart. And yet I still feel that want, that aching need unfurling through my body. If Lucas Waring wants my business, I’ll give him a chance…once we’ve finally experienced a deliciously carnal arrangement that’s long overdue.
This time, nothing is stopping me from having what I want. Not my family. Not my locked-down heart. Nice Eva is gone forever. Naughty Eva has taken her place. Only my heart’s about to pull the biggest betrayal of all…
This book started out hot from the very first pages! It was a quick and easy read, lots of steam, lots of emotion, lots of back story. The characters both had great reasons for why they felt the way they did. Everyone in the family did in a way. It was good that in the end they were able to find out the real events that led to the rift between Lucas and Eva’s family. I like that Eva was working on her own product and that she was taking charge and making her own decisions. There was a time or two when I feel like she gave in and let others come between her and Lucas, but again, I know that’s needed to add the drama to the story. As I said, it was a fast read, and I could see reading more from this author in the future.
