    OMG I can't wait for the next installment I absolutely LOVED this book I liked that it didn't have the detailed sex scenes in it as most of the books written today have I liked the sex was implied and we could make of it what we wanted Don't get me wrong I do enjoy the books loaded with sex but this was a nice change from what everyone else is writing And I enjoyed the twists that I didn't see coming Still wondering how Devlin fits into all of this Hmmmmm The best is that Ella is a Jersey Girl Love her attitude Don't mess with a Jersey Girl The book was GREAT I'm looking forward to 'New Beginnings' Thank you Lori Keep them coming

    I received a copy of this in exchange for my honest review for a upcoming blog tour I loved and hated this book The thing that I hated the most was Ella and her constant jealousy and whiny attitude I sometimes forgot she was a 35 year old grown womanSo now that the negative is out the way I loved this book The whole love at first sight by meeting on a plane then another chance meeting at a restaurant leading to them falling in love was different The relationship did move a helluva fast like really really fast that sometimes I forgot the time frame was weeks when in most relationships it would have been months Ella as a character was jealous to the point that I cringed at some parts and felt like saying really? She was married for 16 years where as Xavier had never been married so it was going to be obvious that he would have several ex girlfriends Not to Ella and that took a bit of the enjoyment from the story Xavier is my new book boyfriend not only is he an insanely hot alpha male and rich CEO but he is closer to my age Now I don't feel so bad lusting over him He is also a true romantic and clearly loves Ella dearly but he is also jealous and over protective The story line involving Ella's ex gave the element of drama that added to the tension throughout All in all a good first book 5 stars

    I had a general idea of what I wanted to say in this review but after finishing this book I am simply exhausted The heroine made me cringe every page with her incessant whining obnoxious jealousy overdone insecurities and overall bitchy disposition The prose was interesting but was not executed correctly so instead the voice of the h came off as a new adult instead of a 30 35? I got to the point where every single page was a struggle and I am sincerely disappointed because I believed I was going to like it by the blurb Keep in mind this is my personal opinion Others may find something they likeSimply Not Good
