Summary:

Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she’s supposed to be. She’s a rising-star-workaholic at an LA based global consulting firm. She’s the fiancée of a well-connected man who's won the approval of her parents.  People know that she’s reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic and yes, a little predictable. She's who Dave and her family want her to be.

But as her thirtieth birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild and crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. There’s just something about him. Under the tailored clothes it’s clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful and maybe even a little dangerous.  With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and, before long, she's in his hotel room.

She never gets his full name. Perhaps it’s better that way. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she’s able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it’s why she's just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life.

Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night, something that she can fantasize about when the rest of her life fails to stimulate her. But when the mysterious gentleman she's just had a fling with shows up in her office—as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more—things will never be the same again. She's under his power, both in bed and in the boardroom. And there's no telling where this will go...

    It was such a good book. Hot and steamy. It's a great contrast between good and evil.

  • Maria Loomis

    The overall story is okay. It lacks a real plot. The main character experiences a large amount of character development, but that can't be said for the man opposite her in the story. The narrator breaks up sentences is a really strange way. Quotes are read in completely unrealistic ways.

    I really enjoyed the book and the characters. Should make it into a movie. Thank you, Kyra Davis.

  • Dominique Wiltshire

    good story but too much detailed sex for my taste. Wish I'd know before buying.

  • Barbara Vredenburg

    Beginning was interesting but towards the middle I found it boring and fast forward a lot when 4 hours was left.

    I truly enjoyed this book. it was a bit more of a shocker at times that had me wanting more!

    I had no idea what this book was about going into the story. I chose it for the audiobook because I like the narrator. I’m a little surprised that I enjoyed it. Normally, I don’t appreciate a book that has cheating, but for some reason this one was okay for me. The characters were compelling enough to make me overlook my reservations. Before I mention what I liked about the characters, I have to say that I really enjoyed this author’s writing style. She definitely has a way with words. The funny thing is the story is told in the present tense, which is my least favorite writing style, but Kyra Davis does such a good job I didn’t even notice. I also loved the character development in this book. The heroine’s decisions weren’t always ones I agreed with, but she was in the middle of an identity crisis, trying to find out who she was. She was confused. I loved her struggle with being who she wanted to be as opposed to who other people wanted her to be. Her struggle with choosing a partner that she wants as opposed to one she should choose. She was a flawed character, but captivating. The hero was deliciously Alpha, and definitely not having any sort of crisis. He’s a megalomaniac and master of his universe. What I loved most about him is that his surety and strength was something he used to bolster and support the heroine. He was good for her. This was definitely an engrossing story and it’s pulled me in.
