One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.
"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”
Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive--he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:
One week. No more.
When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.
"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"
In my opinion Alexandria is a little wild cat! She knows how to behave and do what needs to be done on the outside, but inside she is all feisty and independent. People may have expectations of her, but in the end she does what she wants. She isn't one of those people who roll over and play dead. Oh no, she is going to take the bull by the horns and pave her own way in life. While she is attempting to pave that way, she unexpectedly meets Nox. They play a cat and mouse game while she is on vacation which was fun, but then they head back to the real world they full plan on never seeing each other again.
Once, Alexandria is back in the real world, her world comes crashing down around her and her life will never be the same. How she handles everything is why I call her a "little wild cat." She does not complain or whine, she makes a plan and pushes forward. **My kind of girl.** Her plan though.......... haha! Well, let's just say that Nox doesn't stay in vacation land. Oh no, and he is upset that she didn't play the damsel in distress and run right to him.
Speaking of Nox...... he is yummy! He is a complete alpha male who made me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. The problem is that he wanted Alexandria to come to him so that he could fix it. Because come on ladies...... who doesn't want a knight in shining armor to come save them. Well not Alexandria. This twist is that he still swoops in unbeknownst to her and is about to drop the biggest bombshell in the last chapter! We know it is coming, but she does not. And his fix is NOT all knight in shinning armor which makes him all the more appealing to me. We have knight meets wickedness all jumbled up together to make one delicious man. EEEKK!!!
This book has left me in a book funk and I have not been able to get out since. Aleatha is one of those authors that always leaves me wanting more and this new series is no exception. So as I'm writing this review, I'm chomping at the bit waiting for the next one to be released. Yes, I know I only have to wait a month....... but in case you didn't know, I'm a very impatient person!! Especially, when it comes to my next book boyfriend.
And I'm putting this out there now! HE IS MINE!!!!
On a side note: I hated her family. They were absolutely despicable and I wanted to strangle them with my bare hands. So secretly, I'm hoping that Nox keeps this knight and shining armor persona and desecrates her family because they deserve nothing less!!
RATING: 5 Stars
