Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars
Although Micah Holt, the hero of this story is a dominant, this book is not about a BDSM relationship, but rather about an emotional journey. This is the first book I read by Stacey Kennedy, but obviously it won’t be my last !
When Allie Parker meets her new employer, real estate mogul Micah Holt, she is drawn to him but he rattles her. His reputation of arrogant and spoiled playboy precedes him, but she feels there is a dark intensity about him that doesn’t match what she heard about him. I loved that Micah was far deeper than what appeared at first sight.
Micah is instantly captivated by her selfless personality and the kindness exuding from her. But Allie is a very normal girl and is convinced that what Micah has to offer her is not what she needs. There is a lot of push and pull between them, Micah is confused and not sure what he really wants. He has set rules and boundaries to keep a firm grip on his life and avoid being hurt, but for Allie he is ready to let go and show his true self.
I enjoyed the emotional depth of this story. This journey of self-discovery is full of hope, as Allie brings lightness to Micah’s darkness. This book is a great start to what I’m sure will be an intense and emotional series. It can be read as a standalone, is told in dual POV and has a happy ending.
An advanced copy of this book was provided by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
