My thoughts: I give it ♥♥
This is the second time I’ve listened to this book. The first time, I was meh. The second time I was still…meh. However, I must have liked it well enough to buy the next book in the series and am currently listening to it.
Kage is cold and unwilling to give any part of himself to Jamie. Jamie is just a nice, small town hetero that is attracted to Kage. Kage and Jamie find the heat and Jamie finds out the Kage likes he sex rough, but Jamie (newbie that he is) finds that he likes it that way too.
I never really got the sense that Kage was able to love, only possess, while Jamie is ‘all in’ where love is concerned.
The book ends on a cliffhanger where Kage ‘rapes’ Jamie in his parents back yard! Yep. Even though Jamie doesn’t feel like it was rape….it definitely was. This is probably why I never progressed to the second book in the series last time I listened to it….so I’m listening now and hoping Kage softens his heart.
My name is Jamie Atwood, and I’m an addict. I never thought I’d say such a thing. Never had a problem being overly-attached to anything in my life. I came from a perfectly middle-class family, made good grades, and had a hot cheerleader girlfriend… but the truth is, nothing ever really moved me. So how did a guy like me become an addict?
I met Michael Kage.
Kage is an MMA fighter. A famous one. I like to think I helped him get that way.
He’s charming as hell, with looks to rival any movie star and talent to back it up. So why did he need to hire me as an intern Publicist? Simple. He has a darkness in him– like a black hole so deep it could swallow him, and me, and everyone we know– and that’s not good for business.
The first time I met him, I felt the pull. I think the addiction began at that very moment. And even if I’d known then what I know now, I would have fallen for him. How could I not?
For me, Kage is everything.
