Will their wedding night be a one-night stand or a merger for keeps?
Global real estate mogul, Cade Sloan should’ve listened to his own advice: trust no one, and never a woman…especially not his 24 hour bride gone AWOL with his millions. Nina, mousy secretary turned sexy vixen, will repay every penny with interest…
When Cade gears up for a takeover, there’s sweet hell to pay. Nina owes her husband a wedding night and he’s hell bent on collecting… his way, his time, his pleasure.
I was really disappointed with this book, I had read another of Sun Chara’s books and thought it was okay, a guilty pleasure type, but this one was nothing like that.
The story seemed to jump around a lot without any kind of flowing narrative, I felt like I was only hearing one side of a conversation like I was continually missing something. It didn’t make for a pleasant reading experience at all.
Thankfully this is a short book so I didn’t have to put up with it for very long, unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to warm to either character. Not that I think I would be able to warm to Cade at all, I mean I’m all for a bad boy but not one to that extreme I didn’t find anything sexy about him. There’s that slightly controlling and hot type Alpha male but in this case it came off as something more brutal and for me totally off-putting.
Maybe, and it’s a big maybe, if there had been a lot more in the way of character development then I could buy that him treating her like a piece of dirt was hot but personally it just ended up feeling like some twisted, self-involved, unlikeable guy trying to get his kicks.
I also didn’t like that there didn’t appear to be any chemistry between them, they are thrown together at the start and there’s not much there, then it skips to a year later and I just didn’t find it believable that Nina would feel like she was at risk of losing her heart to someone that she hadn’t seen in a year and who then treats her appallingly.
With the ending I felt the explanation didn’t actually explain anything, I don’t want to spoil it but I don’t feel like it was a good enough reason to justify any of the things that happened in the book.
Like I said I’m really disappointed with this book and unfortunately this means I won’t be reading anything else from this author.
