What started as an assignment became more than Lily could have ever hoped for...
Lily Salomé has encountered more challenges than the average twenty-four year old. After a horrendous crash killed her parents, an abusive relationship was all she needed to calcify her broken heart to stone. So when Lily’s boss comes to her with a challenge most girls would balk at, she knows there isn’t much left in this world to be afraid of.
The target: Jonas Crane, a brooding business mogul who hasn't smiled once since his divorce. Dark, dangerous and mouthwatering, Crane has written a book about life in the fast lane and with the recent publicity, Lily's boss wants the rights. Problem is, Crane won't return a phone call, let alone agree to a meeting. But if a pretty publishing assistant happens to run into him at the Waldorf, with a business card and a smile...what could go wrong?
A lot, it seems. Lily thinks she's going to the Waldorf to meet a rich jerk, or worse, a playboy, but the truth is way more challenging. Jonas Crane is smart, engaging...and devastatingly out of her league.
My 4 Star Review
This story started off bad for me, but then turned into something I couldn’t put down. At first I thought that the main character, Lilly, was a big pushover. She seemed to have no backbone. However, the more I learned of her past and circumstances, the more I felt that she was doing the best she could to live her life on her terms. It takes guts to be her. Jonas is like no man she has met before. And she feels the instant attraction. And boy so does he. At first, I thought that the relationship he proposes for them is the coward’s way out. He wants her, but on his terms, and his time. No feelings. Jonas has a very different past than Lilly but no less hurtful in my opinion. These two characters have a chemistry so powerful, it set the pages on fire! I am loving the direction this series is taking and can’t wait to know what happens next!
Lily Salomé knows one thing: Jonas Crane is the lover she always dreamt of. Smart, powerful and sexy, both in and out of the bedroom.
For the first time in a long time, things are looking up for Lily. With the city’s most eligible bachelor on her arm, life with Jonas might just live up to all it’s beautiful promise.
That is until an altercation with a man from her past leaves her bruised, frightened, and too ashamed to tell the truth.
She can run, she can hide, but for how long?
**The book contains some dark themes/situations that may be difficult for some readers**
My 4 Star Review
The direction this series is taking is keeping me from putting it down. I stayed up through the night to finish this one! I love these characters, and I hate seeing them put through all this grief. Lilly has had enough sadness in her life and it is time for her happily ever after. But at the same time, she has to learn to fight for what she wants. Jonas, I believe, is confused in his feelings for Lilly. I think he is having a hard time defining what his emotions are. I love the relationship he still has with his ex-wife, her new love, and his son. I HATE Melissa! I think everybody will though! I cried during parts of this story. I screamed in my head at times (it was late and I didn’t want to wake anyone). I was happy at the end. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Part Three of a Three Part Contemporary Erotic Romance Trilogy
Healing Two Hearts. Creating One Memory.
Lily loves Jonas but implicit trust is another matter. After all they've been through, she still can't believe he'll stay no matter how deep, how dark her secrets. With her ex, Declan, up to his worst, Lily's embarrassed and ashamed...but she's underestimated Jonas. He has brains as well as beauty. With the same ruthlessness he uses to dispatch his business rivals, he vows to annihilate Declan.
Lily is glad to relinquish control. Jonas is determined to personally oversee her recovery and she lets him. She's still too weak to deal with the chaos that's become her life. Jonas whisks her away to a secluded luxury loft in Tribeca and pampers her with sensual decadence. Every caress, every lingering honey-sweet kiss they share says he loves her--even the way he possesses her body in the sultry heat of the night...but will Jonas commit? Will he ever be able to say those three little words she craves to hear from him?
Amélie S. Duncan writes contemporary, erotic romances with a dark edge. Her inspiration comes from many sources including her life experiences and travels. She lives on the West Coast of the United States with her husband.
