Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out — move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.

But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous — the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it.

Avoiding him isn’t an option after he offers a business proposition she can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

Val’s Review

4 Stars

So this felt very “Fifty Fresh Shade-y” to me.


‘Fifty Shade-y” is super legit technical term, by the way. I thought of it in the bathroom.

You’re welcome.

But as I was saying.

This felt Fifty Fresh Shade-y.

Except in a night club.


With no Red Room.


No virginal lip biter who dresses poorly.


And no Inner Goddess.


GOD, that was so fucking annoying.

But anycrappyinnerdialogue, I don’t really care about that, I still really enjoyed it.

I thought it was cool that Alayna has some pumped up kicks – aka ISSUES – too – thus the “fresh” of my Fifty Fresh Shade-y.

Especially since her issue was something this wingnut can totally get down with.


I AM that^^^ friend, homies.

I AM that person who needs things parallel, patterns her closet by color and season, and reorganizes the fucking condiment jar at restaurants. This is quickly followed by a Wet Ones wipe down, of course…which I carry in my purse at all times….

But whatevs!

NEVER doubt the airborne disease power of the Petri dish that is a toddler, people.


I know I may sound high strung, but I swear I’m not.

I’m super chill about life and YOUR mess. It’s only MY mess that I care about.

I try to not to foist my crazy onto others.

But I digress.

This book.

I really enjoyed it.

But, also as with Fifty, I don’t feel too much urgency to dive into book two for whatever reason…

I must admit, my dumbass didn’t remember this was a same-couple/trilogy series – a format I just don’t love all that much when I’m not in the mood for it.

Which I’m not right now.

Regardless, I’m sure at some point that I’ll get to the rest of the series, but for now I’m content to hit pause…
