Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the obsessive, crazy stalker kind. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to stay away from her past tendencies and develop their love into more than just amazing sex. At least Hudson is as dedicated to her as she is to him, though she could do without his new found jealousy and need to control everything. To complicate matters, Hudson has his own baggage including a penchant for mind games and a hateful alcoholic mother who’s set on destroying any happiness he might find with Alayna.
Needing insight, Alayna turns to an unlikely source—Celia Werner. Celia’s been in love with Hudson herself and knows how to ride the rocky waves of the emotionally closed-off man. But when Celia’s true motivations behind their friendship are revealed, Hudson’s commitment might not be as solid as Alayna thinks, and even their all-consuming passion for each other isn’t enough to fix their mistrusts. This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…
I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Hudson Alexander Pierce. Holy crap. He is the best kept secret alpha billionaire. OMG. I have read tons of billionaire stories, but not many live up to this one. Why did I take so long to find him?
The first book (Fixed On You), blew me away. However this one, we get even deeper into the life of Hudson Pierce. We learn his secrets. And they are dark! Not really what you are expecting.
In this book, Hudson and Alayna learn that love is easy, trust is hard. Because of the unconventional way they fell for each other, Alayna was very insecure regarding the realness of their relationship. She questioned everything Hudson did. But with Alayna’s past this is expected. I loved the way Hudson dealt with it all. It allowed both him and Alayna to grow as individuals.
Similar to book one, this book is steamy. You will have to fan yourself. Many times. I read this book in a day. I held on to every word as it was an important contribution to this story. I could not put it down. The story is well-written and flows nicely. There is never a boring moment. It picks up right where book one, left off. There is angst, drama, romance, and humor. The story captures you until the very end.
“I know it’s scary and our situation hasn’t been ideal, but you are everything good for me. Nothing in this world is important to me beyond you. I can be the same for you I know it. And I’m so grateful you’ve given me the chance to prove it.”
Hudson shows a different side in this book. He is sweet and romantic, although he seems to think differently. Dreamy sigh. What I love about Hudson is that he strongly desires Alayna in body and mind. He loves how intelligent and how business savvy she is. Besides being freaking hot, he is dominating, powerful, and completely swoon worthy. Hudson and Alayna have a strong sexual connection, but their attraction goes much deeper than that.
There is no life-changing cliffhanger at the end, however it can be easily seen that their story is far from over. While progress was made, they both have so much growth to accomplish as human beings and as a couple. I look forward to more of their story. This is not your typical alpha billionaire story. This IS better! Every fan of this genre should make this their must read.
