This is the second book by Adrianne Bryd that I've read. I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series but I was a bit disappointed with the story and the author.
These stories are fiction but as readers we read them because of the possibility that this could happen to us. We could have this fantasy as a reality. I've noticed that a lot of authors are irresponsible in the message they give readers.
It seems as though once the hero decides to have unprotected sex with a woman, that's when he knows she's THE ONE. Everything that Xavier knows about Cheryl is a lie and yet he falls in love with her. Even Cheryl has to question why he loves her?
At the end we are left hanging regarding Xavier and Cheryl's relationship. The story should have ended with them, not Quentin. Does Cheryl go back to being a cop in a different city? Does she continue to work at the club as a bartender even though Xavier has sold his share in the business? Does she work with him at the gym as a fitness instructor?
P.S. I'm reading all three books back to back and I have to say that Eamon, Xavier, and Jeremy are all brothers and the cover models should reflect the similarities. Every time I look at the cover model for Eamon, I cringe. He does not compare with the models for the other two books IMHO.
