It was his lips. 
The way his stare sent shivers down my spine. 
The way his rough voice whispered my name.
So I caved.
I did what I knew I shouldn’t. 
But as quickly as he’s there, he’s gone. 
Leaving me confused.  
I hope I’ll never see him again… 
Then I do.  
He’s my new boss. 
And he has secrets.

Well, darn it.  I read a good book, and I want to tell you all about, well, all the things.  Especially the part where (spoiler) and (spoiler) happened.  And, you know how it says in the blurb that Grant has secrets?  Well, he does...and one of them...spoiler.

Are you catching on yet?  I want to talk about how much I enjoyed this book.  And, I did love it.  But I also want to tell you why.  And, I can't because it would be a spoiler and I would ruin the fun for you.  And, that is mean.

So, what can I tell you?  I can tell you that Grant is absolutely the jerk you expect him to be, if you have read the first books...or if you just know him from the first meeting he has with Bridget.  He's selfish, or at least that is how it seems when you watch the choices he makes and the way he treats people.

You want better for Bridget.  But, Bridget wants Grant, so you find yourself thinking that maybe he isn't awful.  But then...then....there's that one thing that really makes you think that your original opinion of him might be right after all.

One of the things I loved about this is the fact that there is a taboo element to it...and the author doesn't shy away.  There are reasons, and justifications, but that taboo element is there.  It's real.  And, it's a thing.

The story is constructed well, and you are both frustrated and sympathetic toward Grant and you like Bridget.  It's a credit to the author in this case that you like Grant as much as you do, as he is definitely not perfect.

But, those stories about the flawed hero that you love anyway?  Aren't those some of the best possible romances of all?
