He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

I had mixed feelings about the main character, not the book itself. I just want to clarify that before I continue.
I love everything Katy writes and this story was no exception. BUT, I did get irritated quite a bit while reading this particular story because, well, Bryn was not my cup of tea. While I can’t really go into detail about WHY she wasn’t without spoiling anything, I’ll just say that home girl went back and forth so much with her thoughts i felt like I was the ball in a tennis match. Really, it just boils down to my personal preference on female leads. She made some choices that were just…
She had some redeeming qualities about her throughout the story, and she was very well fleshed out and maybe it was because I KNEW someone like her, but overall….she was frustrating.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about my fav; Double A A-A-R-I-C Christos. The man is lava. Imagine If Malcolm Saint, Maverick and Makenna Jones had a little brother..It would be Aaric Christos. He’s smooth ruthless and so, so sexy. I mean, I could just stare at the cover all day…
“He walks like he’s the $hit.”
and talk about smooth….
“Fourteen years starving to kiss you…”
“…That’s not the kind of wet I wanted to get you..”
I don’t think I have loved someone like him since Saint, Maverick and Makenna!
Him, his loyalty, protectiveness and his swag, it all floored me!
Overall, the ending is a HEA, of sorts(haha) and i loved that it was of’ sorts’. Most of Katy’s books I read around three times and even despite my personal dislike of Bryn, I will probably read this book again because, Aaric!
