3.5 stars. I liked the sound of this book after it was liken to the 'This Man' series. I'll say only one thing regarding a comparison of the two, yes there are definite similarities with Zach and Jesse. Or rather Zach tries to be, with his one-liners that are intended to shock the heroine - Bethany, and the reader. These one-liners are okay....but for me they came across as alittle cheesey, like he was trying too hard.
Anyway, aside from that, this is a good book. It was very easy to read and their relationship is fast moving. I was annoyed at first at how slow Zach took in the beginning, but there was a reason for that so ill forgive him. Bethany was okay too. She's had a tough year and who else to help her - gorgeous and rich Zach.
Of course Zach has some past demons. He doesnt open up to Bethany much and this annoys her - and rightly so given that he demands everything from her. I didnt quite feel the 'darkness' of his past and i had already assumed what these might involve - its kind of obvious. However i think it was intended to be a shock as it is 'revealed' at the end as a semi-cliffhanger.
On the whole, not bad. Hot kinky sex. Always a bonus. Just missing something for me.
