Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog.

SUMMARY

Eden Murphy came into my club looking to make some extra cash.
A girl like her didn’t belong in a place like this.
She’d get ripped to shreds.
Most likely by me.
There’s nothing but sweetness dripping from her sexy little body, and I’m the monster who’s salivating to get a taste.

Trent Lawson is the last man I should want.
Dark.
Dangerous.
So wickedly gorgeous he makes my knees weak.
He’s also an arrogant jerk who happens to be my new boss.

When I discover his adorable son is also in my kindergarten class, I know I have to keep my distance.

But neither of us can ignore the attraction that flames.
One glance, and our hearts race.
One touch, and we’re aching for what we can’t have.
One night, and we’re falling fast.

Dragging her into my sordid world is wrong.
It doesn’t matter.
Eden Murphy is mine.

Review

Classic bad boy and good girl characters. Trent is a tattooed bad boy biker and Eden is a pre-school and Sunday school teacher, as polar opposites as you could get but there is a strong attraction pulling them to each other that is irresistible. Eden needs extra money to help her father keep his school after her sister stole from him. She goes to a club searching for work and butts head with Trent (her new boss).

Trent has been looking for redemption most of his life. He has been living a clean life for the sake of his son. When he meets Eden, he has one more reason to live a moral life but will his past sins come hunting him before he can make preparations to protect those he loves?

I loved the chapters into Trent’s past to show how he was shaped. It gave more insight into the character and the reader really gets to know Trent more. And the twist in the plot was predictable but I still found myself gasping and enjoying it. There was a lot of reference to demons and angels, hell and heaven that really expatiated on how different Trent and Eden were.

 I gave 3 out of 5 stars because I loved the story but it wasn’t moving me. I loved baby boy Gage and every time he spoke I smiled. The story is just too cheesy for me but any reader who loves stories that are so sweet it’ll give you a toothache will love this story.
