ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.


Frankie Jordan had a dilemma. She was very ambitious when it comes to her career and it was going towards the right direction. But the demand of her career trajectory made her question the relevance of a romantic relationship.

Derek Block knew what he wanted and had good idea how to make Frankie want the same thing. But the truth seemed to keep haunting them when secrets from the past crept in threatening their future.

In Episode Three we got to learn more about Frankie’s past with Reed. This time around, it was Derek’s past that pose a problem. We learned more about his and Hayden’s motivation in taking Randy down. We also got a glimpse of his family and his youth.

I needed a piece of Derek that was deeper than anything he’d given to me. Something that made me believe I could handle my career and the man who owned my body at the same time.

I’ve always liked Frankie, but I was a little annoyed with her issue because it seemed a little recycled from the last episode. I just wish she was stronger in making her decisions.

As expected, the sex scenes were scorching. Though if I want to complain, I have to say the frequency is less in this one. But it was absolutely made up by the quality. Personally, I think the hot tub scene was quite memorable.

Episode Four had an engaging and fast pace storyline. The next episode will be the conclusion of this hot and entertaining series. The pieces are all nicely in place, but from the end of this episode, it seemed something huge will knock it all over. Can’t wait to see how it all turns out.

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.
