Deacon Starkis, billionaire businessman, pursues model, Mia, after seeing shots of her in his company's lingerie catalogue. Even though she's in a relationship they correspond back and forth for 6 months via email and text. The man is a disrespectful, creepy,manipulative, stalkerish, obsessive, arrogant, 35yr old man-slut who thinks she's ' the one'. She's a beyond naive, gullible, 23yr old trying to come to terms that the man she 'loves'...has bedded all her colleagues. Yuck!!! There was zero chemistry between the leads, they were shallow and quite unbelievable. And the fantastical ending when he 'sorts' his 'issues' out...just like that...for a woman he'd only met in the flesh for a couple of days...was cringe-worthy laughable. It's written in alternate pov's from the leads, with secondary characters intermingled for further books in the series. I found little to like about this book...other than it was free.

Oh my gosh, I am so in love with Deacon! He is seriously hot, his brand of dirty talking will really raise your temperature! Deacon is 100% pure alpha male who is used to easily getting whatever he wants - and he badly wants Mia. She is a gorgeous model who works for him at his lingerie company, and as soon as he saw her photo he decided that she was the one for him. The only problem is the fact that Mia is in a long term relationship with Drew, who to be honest is a total loser and not good enough for our Mia. Despite this Deacon spends months building a friendship with her via text and email, then once Drew is out of the picture he goes all out to win her. Mia is not swayed by his money or power which Deacon finds refreshing. Things hot up between them but Deacon is hiding a big secret that will devastate Mia

This was such a fun book to read - the author got the balance of humour/angst/sexiness just right for me. I flew through this book, I really didn't want to put it down - and I stayed awake until the early hours so I could finish it! Deacon is an amazing character - yes he's arrogant, yes he's very controlling and used to everyone agreeing with what he says, and yes he does act like a crazy stalker at times. But he also genuinely cares for Mia and would do anything for her. Mia was fabulous too, I really liked her, I imagine she would be a fun friend to have around.

This is a fabulous book, it by far exceeded my expectations. I am looking forward to the next book, which I assume will be Deacon's brother Damon's story. I would definitely recommend this book to readers who are looking for a slightly different billionaire romance, you won't be disappointed with Deacon. Five stars!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

4.5 Star Review
I was given this book for a honest review
This is the first book I have read by Cheryl Douglas and I'm so glad I was given the chance as I really didn't want this book to end.
Deacon Starkis has set his sights on Mia a model that is featured in the catalogue he owns and what Deacon wants he normally gets.....
Mia has been in a relationship for eight years but is intrigued when she receives a email from Deacon the problem is Deacon doesn't do relationships and Mia doesn't do one night stands.
Will Mia risk her relationship of eight years.......
Will Deacon want more than a fling .......
This book gives you so much, Love, Feelings and shows us what people will do and how they will change when they find the one for them.
Amazing book that left me wanting more

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. I have read many of Cheryls books and I have to say I loved this! Deacon Starkis is alpha male used to getting what he wants when he wants and no one say no to him, except Mia, she is a one man woman and is in a long term relationship, but not for long if Deacon has his way! Mia is all about honesty and Deacon has a secret and someone from his past cannot wait to tell Mia to push them apart. This is a hot, steamy and oh so sexy story and I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of the Starkis family! Well done Cheryl on another fabulous start to another family saga!
