    Sexy, suspenseful and exciting story

    In this scorching story, originally a 3 part serial now released as one full novel, we are introduced to Hailey and Cole and their love/hate relationship. Told in first person point of view alternating between them, we learn that Cole works for a public relations/security agency that has been hired to provide protection for Hailey's wealthy society family, prone to scandal (though she herself has managed to stay out of the limelight). Hailey resents Cole's necessary intrusion into her life, the more so because they share a sexual chemistry that lights her up even though she hates that he's part of her life. It's a no win situation for both of them so giving into their baser feelings and getting them out of the way seems like the best option if they're going to be stuck with each other anyway. I'm a big fan of the forbidden love, enemies to lovers type tropes so I expected a lot from this story and I was thrilled with how it turned out! Cole is a good boy hiding in a bad boy's skin, and this internal conflict made him a very engaging and dynamic hero. He wants Hailey but he knows he shouldn't have her. Hailey too was a fun character, thumbing her nose at society's expectations of her (and at Cole in the process for having to be her security shadow). Together they are like oil and water, clashing until they find just the right thing to meld them together - sex. The scenes between them are HOT! Hailey's family and Cole's work associates make up the secondary characters in the story, driving the plot and the motivations for their actions. As the story progresses, the sex becomes more meaningful as their feelings for each other deepen. There's a secondary suspense subplot, one that leads in a dark and dangerous direction. I really like how Hailey's character developed over the course of the story , in particular her realization that she is a strong woman and her willingness to stand up for herself and do what needs to be done. The other team members of the Horus group have some good setups happening for future stories and I'll definitely be looking out for those. Overall, this was a super sexy and riveting read, with some action and suspense to counter the romance and make the whole story very entertaining. 4.5 stars.

    A fantastic, erotic, romantic suspense story!

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you saw this book when it came out as a serial, and passed it up because of cliffhangers, here’s your chance to get it as complete book with bonus scenes at the end. These bonus scenes add so much to the story that even if you read the individual episodes you might want to buy this set just for them. Cole and Hailey begin with kind of a love/hate relationship. Cole works for her father and Hailey hates that his company helps to cover up bad things that rich people do. Cole has wanted Hailey from the first moment he saw her but he knows he’s not good enough for her. Even so, he can’t seem to stay away from her and she can’t resist him. The sexy time between them is HOT! Their relationship begins to deepen but Hailey still doesn’t completely trust Cole and hates that he has to keep so much hidden from her. There are some fantastic twists in this story – things about her family that I never saw coming. Ainsley Booth does a nice job of setting things up for additional stories about the other members of the Horus group and I look forward to reading all of them!

    Got this book free for an earnest revieuw :) Was an ok read but need more. Steamy sex scenes but could have used a bit more. Just to live up to the name of the book.

    Enjoyed every minute of it!

    Of course the title is a bit strong (shocking?), but that is why I took a copy. And the gorgeous guy on the cover doesn't hurt either. I liked the action and twists and loved the ending.
