When Lexi Tanner’s unbelievably hot one-night stand turns out to be the same man she needs to approach for a hefty donation, things certainly get complicated. She’ll do anything to raise the money needed for the children’s charity she’s starting—but how can she ask AJ Riley for money now?
Adam knows he’ll never love again. He’s been there and done that. But the sexy woman he had an unbelievable night with causes cracks in his emotional defenses as well as cranks up his libido. One night should have burned her out of his system, but this kind of heat comes with strings…
I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. This is the first novel I’ve read by Jess Dee, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pulled in by the premise. Lexi needs funding for her charity and unbeknownst to her, she has a steamy knight with a stranger that turns out to be the very man she needs to approach to secure the funding.
I enjoyed the story, it had its sexy moments, and a few groan-worthy moments, but overall I enjoyed the story. Lexi’s character development fell a little flat for me. She was the same exact person at the end of the book as she was at the beginning – she just had to put up with a little emotional abuse for the man she fell in love with. Adam on the other hand, developed fully, and I think it was his development that kept the story moving for me.
Yes, there were some steamy sex scenes, which I enjoyed, I think it missed the mark for me with Lexi. I just wish our leading lady had more substance. Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. The time passed quickly while reading, and I was satisfied with the HEA.
