Review by Buttercup
Nicola Bourdeaux is Victor's ultimate woman. She's smart, beautiful, and the sweetest person he's ever met. But when a rival firm gets a hold of confidential information and Victor loses a major lawsuit, he accuses Nicola of betraying him. His mistake leads to a major blow-up and break-up.
Victor Weise is Nicola's ultimate man. He's intelligent, handsome, and the most arrogant man she's ever met. But when Victor accuses her of betrayal, Nicola is determined to a make a fresh start. She accepts an offer for a teaching position out of state, convinced she needed to get as far away as quickly as possible.
But before she leaves, she gets a request to visit the Weise residence. Hoping to gain some closure, Nicola accepts. But Victor has some tricks up his sleeve.
Will one afternoon be enough for Victor to reclaim Nicola?
Nicola is invited to come to her ex-boyfriend’s family home after a horrible breakup two weeks prior. She is clueless as to what he could possibly want. She internally mulls over what is going on and why all family members act as if all is honky dory with the couple while she awaits him in the family’s den.
Meanwhile, Victor is desperately trying to work out a plan to recapture Nicola’s affections after he caused a great misunderstanding that effectively destroyed their once-thought forever relationship.
What kept me turning pages is why they broke up in the first place, but the desire these two held for each other had me cheering for reconciliation. The erotic toying with each other’s emotions is vexing to say the least, but I will tell you the make up is one hot erotic ride.
If you want a quick lusty read, this one is for you. I felt the beginning a tad bit slow but let’s just say the warm up is well worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I will definitely look to read more from this author.
