This is my first read by this author. Since I read the 50 Shades of Grey series. That said, I am willing to read mature romantic reads if there is substance aside from bedroom scenes. Meaning, if there is a plot, a story line aside from reading about two people getting intimate and there is an actual point to the bedroom scenes, I am willing to read the book(s). This is why I was open to reading the hit series I mentioned above. That said...
There was an actual story line aside from the adult content. Although there were some sex scenes I felt were unnecessary and more added in for fun adult reading (I get it, your prerogative).
Watching the relationship between Evelyn Benedict and Austin Fitzgerald was fun to watch blossom and grow. Their fun and spicy banter added a humorous and fun level to the story. Some of her behaviors though, really annoyed me. Mainly because they were immature and she is supposed to be an established adult and business woman. She had a challenging childhood so I understand she needed a coping mechanism to deal with hard and stressful situations but, tantrums? My only other complaint about this book is the ending felt very impetuous and abrupt.
All in all though, it was a good read that kept me captivated. This is a good start to a series that I look forward to reading.
