I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Kate J. Blake is an avid traveler who loves to read. She tried to incorporate her travels into her writing. She writes about strong females and alpha males, and she is a fan of a steamy scene. A self-proclaimed coffee addict, she loves her real-life superhero and their chubby kitty.
“He kisses me, and I feel like the whole world stops for a moment; I feel like there are only two people left in the entire universe, and nothing else matters.”
Jack Harden is a wealthy, powerful man who is used to getting his way. He is driven, direct, and does not like a distraction. Crystal is ambitious, smart, and brave. She wants to be seen as the force she is. She wants to move up in the company because she deserves it, but she hasn’t been given the opportunity. So she takes matters into her own hands.
This was a deliciously steamy romance. I have never read Kate Blake before, but I will have to add her to my reading repertoire. This is the story of a power couple, finally realizing what they want and what they deserve.
I love that Crystal is so outspoken. She is not afraid to go after the things she wants and the things she knows she deserves. Sure, she’s attracted to her boss. But she also knows he is a workaholic who doesn’t have time for strong women.
Jack is authoritative and bold, but he also values honesty. He has kept everyone at arm’s length for his protection and has hidden behind a rocky exterior to prevent any risk of heartbreak.
The physical attraction is immediate. The mental and emotional appeal follows quickly. I very much enjoyed the dynamic between the characters. I love how Jack was written to be a billionaire, to have everything, and yet he was missing something so fundamental: love.
Crystal rocks his world when she calls him out for his lack of female marketing assistants. And again, when she smiles at him. Their relationship has a quick build and a whirlwind finish.
Not your typical Christmas time love story, this will make you forget it’s holiday themes at all. A super steamy, charming, quick, and easy read. Who doesn’t love a man who goes after what he wants? And who doesn’t love a woman who refuses to settle for less?
