Genre: Contemporary Romance
Michaela Prentice and Jordan Marsh’s friendship began in the worst of circumstances after she discovered his girlfriend in bed with her fiancé. It had seemed only natural to spend time together as they got over their mutual breakups, but she soon realized Jordan wanted more than friendship.
Jordan Marsh knew the minute he met Michaela that he had to have her. Unfortunately she was already taken, but he wasn’t about to let her get away. When Jordan sets a goal he’s relentless until he gets what he wants, and what he wants is Michaela.
As they make the transition from friends to lovers, Jordan exposes a sensual side to his nature that Michaela didn’t know existed and can’t seem to resist. However, Michaela quickly learns that Jordan isn’t the friend or lover she thought she knew. His world is filled with secrets and she soon finds herself caught up in his deceptions. Is she facing another betrayal?
Warning: This book is funny, steamy and contains sex scenes with chocolate that some readers might find delicious.

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
I was expecting something else and unfortunately, I’m quite a bit disappointed.
While the characters are interesting to a certain extent, I couldn’t see the appeal. I didn’t have the time to really appreciate the connection between Jordan and Michaela before they started to date and it’s annoying to be repeated throughout the book that they have been friends for a year without actually seeing it more than in one chapter. And even then, it wasn’t that convincing.
I would have loved to see Michaela truly struggling when it comes to being involved with Jordan, to be afraid of losing him if things didn’t work out because it would have been way more believable.
Here, I felt nothing short of two people going at it whenever they could to the point of being silly. Sexual chemistry is amazing in such a genre of books, but when it’s not believable and when it cuts short to the characterization, then it’s counter-productive and I ended up being bored and not that interested in the story or even the characters.
Moreover, the relationship between Jordan and Michaela progressed in a linear way which too doesn’t help building the reader’s interest, mine at least. I was bored and even Jordan’s need to takes things further so fast wasn’t funny. I’m not saying that the characters should have fought their attraction for the better part of the book, but at least I would have enjoyed a little more struggling from Michaela when she discovered what Jordan hid from her. But, nothing but one dialogue during which she explained that she was mad.
Speaking of dialogues… I think they’re not flowing that well. Not enough for my taste at least.
But the descriptions were good even though the dual POV was a little tricky to follow a couple of times.
I’m sorry to write such a review, but I didn’t like the plot, the mysteries weren’t that mysterious or even-balanced with the rest of the book, the ending is rushed… No, I didn’t like this book all that much.
I saw that other people already rated it very well so it’s obvious that I missed the appeal here. Maybe you won’t feel the same, so please, feel free to let me know if you enjoyed this book and why. Maybe you’ll open my eyes. 🙂
But right now, I don’t think I’ll read the other books that will be about Jordan’s brothers.
