Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.
Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.
Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.
When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it.
And this time there’s no getting out of it.
A warm bed.
A steady job.
A brother who loves her.
For Essie Gray, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.
Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.
Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?
After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…
I have to admit I have not read many books by male authors writing romances, erotica. Mostly I read horrors or thrillers 😉 But there is something about them that drags me in and I find myself reading more and more of them.
The sex scenes, the descriptions and thoughts of the characters are totally different than what a female author would scribble down. I like it. I like it a lot.
This book has pulled me in straight away. Aidan is hot and handsome. Even now just thinking about him makes me drool. He and Essie are so different in almost everything. Their love for their family is so different!
I loved Aidan. He is the one character that I really enjoyed here but with Essie? Most of the time I wanted to slap her. Hard. But her determination for the revenge was quite impressive.
I finished the book in almost one sitting after coming from work with a break for a gym class 😁
Eagerly waiting for the next part!!
4 stars! Just because I couldn’t really relate to Essie….
