My Rating: ⭐⭐
A sexy alpha male from the poshest part of Philadelphia gets snowed in with his beautifulneighbor in this modern day rags-to-riches, enemies to lovers romance from bestselling and award winning author, Lydia Michaels.
Avery Johansson is borrowing against her youth and beauty to afford a better future by working as a sugar baby. Gifted at playing the role of a delicate female, she makes a living by stroking men’s egos. But the real Avery prefers leather over lace and spice instead of nice.
Noah Wolfe is used to getting exactly what he wants when he wants, and when he sets his sights on his sexy neighbor, he’s determined to have her. Little does he know, the soft female across the hall doesn’t swoon for roses–she plays with the thorns.
Two dominant hearts collide in an explosion of sin and safewords as boundaries are pressed to the limit in a battle of power and ultimate possession.
If I had not previously read books from Ms. Michaels then this book would have certainly put me off her writings.
Noah was a chauvinistic, abusive pig that had no redeeming qualities that I could see. I struggled to find anything I liked with this book. This book plays very dangerously with consent and while the author may have thought they were writing edgy, kinky sex this book veers straight into abuse territory and not an example of adult fun.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
