My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sweet and sexy…
If you are a reader of the High Stakes Seduction series than the main characters of this new series will be old friends. Thompson is Maria’s chauffeur but their friendly interactions are going to become so much more as they both open up to each other.
On the surface, they seem an unlikely pairing. Thompson appears stoic but is hiding a world of hurt, frustration as well as lingering, horrifying, memories of his time as a soldier. Maria is the epitome of a girl next door, who just happens to also be in a wheelchair. She doesn’t want pity, or special favours, but she can’t help but be apprehensive of what her future will, or won’t, hold.
“But the pain… pain is universal and whether your legs are broken or it’s the place in your mind that no longer trusts… it can slice deep, take out a piece of you you’ll never get back.”
The two of them together just seem to gel. Maria is calm and matter-of-fact when Thompson desperately needs someone to be as his world is so out of control on many fronts. They seem to complement each other as they each bring their strengths, and vulnerabilities, to their changing relationship.
There are scenes that made me smile and situations that truly had me wanting to throat-punch as the good and bad in people is more that eloquently portrayed here. Ending on a “heart in your throat” cliffhanger I can’t wait to find out what happens next in their journey!
