    Good read

    Very conflicted about this one! The writing is good and the characters most definitely grip you emotionally. Those are the good points. The bad - I hate cliffhangers...ugh! The characters, both Caleb just for being the ruthless person he is and Kelly for being willing to use herself all in the name of revenge, make me a bit crazy. With that said, I did sit and read this all the way through so it did what a good book should. It grabbed me emotionally, kept my attention, and stuck with me. So if you like your stories a little dark, filled with revenge, and don't mind waiting for the next book then I definitely recommend this one.

    part 1 of 2, a sexy suspenseful story

    This erotic novel (at this point I'm hesitant to call it a romance, as there isn't a lot of love happening between the two main characters ) is the first of two parts, and is the story of Caleb and Kelly. Kelly is out for revenge for the brutal murder of her father, and when it turns out that her one night stand (or more accurately her one afternoon stand) might be the one responsible, she finds a way to gain access to him and his household on the pretense of needing his protection in order to find proof that he was the one behind it. She uses sex as a weapon to gain Caleb's, well, maybe not trust, but attention. But when she finds herself unable to keep her feelings for him in the neat and tidy box she's constructed, will she pull out of their burgeoning relationship? I feel quite conflicted about this story. I've always liked Claire Kent's writing as she definitely excels at erotic stories and she's among my favourite authors. But this is the first time where I haven't liked the characters in question. Kelly is a strong and confident woman, quite at home with her body and her decisions regarding sex. She doesn't do relationships, she prefers one night stands and is quick to cut off any attempt at further contact. That in itself didn't bother me, but her wilful manipulation of Caleb in their relationship was not particularly attractive, though it was understandable considering her motivation. Caleb is also an enigma - he's a powerful, ruthless, businessman, who while he senses that Kelly is keeping secrets from him, is still interested in a sexual relationship with her. I'm not really sure that I liked him either, though he is much more concerned and caring about Kelly than vice versa. He is an anti-hero in my eyes. But then again, she's an anti-heroine, so a somewhat perfect match for each other. The sex definitely drives their relationship, in both a negative and positive way. While Kelly was initially attracted to Caleb on the basis of their surprisingly heated rendezvous, when she finds out that he might be the man responsible for her father's murder she feels at once anger, guilt, and disgust. So at the beginning, the sex between them is quite one sided, in the sense that Caleb thinks Kelly is really into it, and Kelly is not, but is trying to forge a connection between them by using sex. When she actively engages with him sexually again it's not at all like their first uninhibited time together and you could feel her mentally gritting her teeth at putting herself in this position. I'm sure this is the first time that I've read a sex scene where the heroine is actively trying NOT to get turned on by the hero. But by midway, she's finding that she is actually enjoying it (much to her guilt) and they try different scenarios where she discovers that the rougher Caleb is, the more turned on she gets. As their relationship progresses, she finds that more and more she is engaged in what they are doing and unable to keep her attraction to him from overwhelming her when they are in bed together. Caleb on the other hand can sense that things aren't always right between them. He knows she is holding back from him emotionally, and works to fix that. It's a constant power struggle.We know by the end of this part that they are drawn to each other sexually and emotionally, but that they each have a lot of secrets that are waiting to spill. This section ends fairly abruptly with no real sense of what's going to happen next except that if they don't start sharing the truth, they won't last long. And if they do confess their guilty secrets, things might even be worse. What was interesting to me about that story was that even though the characters didn't really appeal to me, I still liked the plot and the edginess of it, and the suspense and tension kept me engaged from the beginning. I'm interested to see how this story will end. 3.5 stars.

    Full of Lust and Revenge

    Once I started this book, I could not put it down, full of love, lust and revenge. What's a better idea than to sleep with the enemy. Kelly likes her relationships with no strings attached and Caleb has no time for lasting relationships as he climbs the corporate ladder. Loved their emotional and physical chemistry, but can they survive this relationship. As reading this book it had me hooked in, until the cliff hanger. Now I can not wait to read the second book in this series. I received this book from Net galley for an honest review.
