Fuck me recklessly
Kiss me harder.
Take me again and again…
He and I met under a cloud of clichés:
Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy fucks girl.
Our story was supposed to end right after the orgasms, right after we went our separate ways.
But then we saw each other again…
And neither of us could walk away.
Our rules were simple.
Our passion was scandalous.
Our hearts were supposed to be safe…
But when you find something so all-consuming—something so intoxicating and inescapable, you’ll risk everything you’ve ever had, even if you’re destined to crash and burn.
This is us.
This is our messed up love.
This is turbulence.
I have had this book on my TBR for a couple of years.
I can't believe it took me this long to get to Jake and Gillian's story.
I think, like a lot of readers, I was not sure that an erotic romance was going to have the emotional depth that I was looking for...I was so wrong. It's definitely there. It's clear in so many little ways that Jake is falling in love with Gillian (flights from Hawaii, late night conversations and all the other things that he said were not going to happen, but did) and you know how Gillian feels about Jake.
It's an erotic romance, so there's a lot of sex. A lot of really fun, steamy, sex. But it also moves the story, from the initial time (when he really should have not allowed her to stay in his house, read it for those details) to the evolution of Jake being unable to wait to see Gillian, something that has never happened to him before (his words) to him being willing to tell her all of his secrets.
Once he does, you already like him...even though he is a bit of a jerk (had to use those ellipses, I just had to) and then you really get to see who he is and it's at this point that the book pivots from erotic to a romance, and you really get a glimpse or who Jake is and who he wants to be with Gillian.
I absolutely loved this title (it's not only a 5 star read but is on my favorite books of all time and I might have just recommended it to my boss) and I definitely recommend it.
P.S. Don't forget the epilogue. While the ending of this was what you needed to know they were going to make their relationship work, seeing them happy was pretty great.
