Fiercely independent and newly single mom Emmaline Hart has spent the last thirteen years putting everyone’s needs before her own. Secretly afraid that her ex-husband’s assertions that she’s too uptight are right, Emma nonetheless keeps her life, and her emotions, firmly under control, fearful of getting hurt again. However, when she meets the dangerously attractive Beckett Black on a job assignment, the way his casual touch sends her pulse racing forces her to acknowledge her growing need to move beyond her fear. When Beckett offers her a job writing the memoir of his father, a renowned cancer researcher, Emma jumps at the career opportunity and the chance to get to know Beckett better.
Emma spends her days with the renowned doctor, who has spent his career studying a plant in the Amazon that has the potential to cure cancer, and her nights with Beckett, who slowly pushes past her fears and breaks down her barriers, introducing her to a passionate and forbidden love that surpasses her wildest fantasies. As the doctor’s story of secrets and cover-ups unravels, so does Emmaline’s view on everything she thought she knew about herself and the power of surrender.
This was a delightful second chance at love story. This is the first in the Black Brothers trilogy.
Beckett is a commanding force and there’s no wonder Emmaline is attracted to him. I found him very full on and at some points too much. There’s no doubt that he wants her. He’s actually wanted her for months and I like how the two end up being together.
What I really liked was the growth from Emmaline. Divorced and still dealing with a man-child ex-husband who tries to manipulate her at every turn, the amount of times she apologised to Beckett over things was getting repetitive. Thankfully the apolgosing diminishes as her confidence of being in a relationship grows. She’s still strong willed but she has to learn the lines of being a submissive.
The lead up to the sex scenes are skin prickle worthy. When you get to the scenes – lordy – talk about hot flushes. I really enjoyed the pace of the book, there’s a good balance of drama, tension and sex. I didn’t predict the twists and turns at the end of the book.
