by Victoria Bright

Cover Designed by Bookfabulous Designs


I didn’t mean to hurt anyone, especially him…

I was living the dream. I had a great career as a romance author, a successful boyfriend, and am the daughter to a New York power couple. With my standing, my family groomed me to be perfect. Despite having it all, something was missing in my life.

In an attempt to break away from my privileged, suffocating life, I was in pursuit of finding my own path to happiness. After my literary agent gave me a risky writing assignment, I set out to write a best-seller that took me completely out of my comfort zone and into the arms of another man. He was only supposed to be a research toy, falling in love wasn’t a part of the plan.

As I become tangled into a huge web of lies, I quickly find out that I have a life changing decision to make. Do I choose to continue living a life of comfort, stability, and misery or do I take a chance on the unknown to preserve my happiness?

I just didn't understand him at times. If I could capture the attention of so many other men without even trying, why couldn't I get him to give me five minutes of his time? I really did want to love him, but he just wouldn't allow me to.

Arianna Donatelli may appear to be living a privileged life, with her ├╝ber rich parents and successful boyfriend; but she is suffocating, buried beneath her parents expectations and forced into a loveless relationship that is more like a businesses deal. The only thing she has that's just for herself is her career as a romance author, all she needs is to hit that best-seller list and she'll be happy... ish. When her literary agent approaches her with a plan to make her next book a major hit ~an erotic novel~ Arianna is unsure if she could actually pull it off. She never could have expected that this book would change her life and bring her into the arms of sexy chef, Zane Foreman. He was only supposed to be a research partner, someone to help her get some steamy material for her book, feelings were never supposed to be a part of it ~ she never even gave him her real name... but sometimes the heart takes over when we least expect it. As Arianna begins to get buried beneath her lies and secrets, it becomes quite clear that she has a decision to make; one that will affect the rest of her life.

The first time I kissed you made me feel as if you were meant for me to have. The first night I had you made me want to make you mine forever. I've never in my life felt like this for a woman, especially this soon. It's almost like you're too good to be true.

There was so much I loved about this book, so many people, so many things. It was a unique and steamy adventure from start to finish that was almost impossible to put down. The characters were all amazing, even the wicked ones – they were sooo bad there was no mistaking their cruel intentions. Zane was absolute perfection; sweet and romantic, but sexy and dirty when he needed to be. Gia was a friggin riot and my new book bestie. Arianna I had some slight issues with, just minor ones. As a whole I really liked her, what kinda bugged me was her lying to Zane; now, I know why she did it, my issue was with the way she went about it. She wasn't just lying to him, she led him on; there were times when she made forever kind of comments knowing she couldn't promise him that with the way things were. That rubbed me the wrong way at times. I also kinda wished we could have spent some time in Zane's head, for no other reason than I just wanted to know what the hell he was thinking when everything came out, and hearing some of his dirty thoughts wouldn't have hurt. There was a taste of insta-love in here, which generally drives me nuts, but it was hidden behind such intense sexual chemistry that I was able to look past it. I do have to admit to some slight disappointment at the ending; it wasn't a cliffy, and it did leave me with a grin on my face, but it was kinda abrupt so I didn't have the warm and fuzzies, but it was still sweet. All I can hope for is another book surrounding these people, I would really like to see where they go from here. Victoria Bright definitely won me over with this wicked little book and earned her spot on my One-Click Addiction List.

Was I really that afraid to lose everything? What exactly was I afraid of losing? If I hated everything about my life, why did I find it so hard to break of it?
