Genres: Contemporary, Romance
I’ve discovered Donovan Kincaid’s secret.
It’s dirty and filthy and rich – as dirty and filthy and rich as he is – and it haunts me as much as he ever did.
Even after knowing what I know now, I still want to talk to him, to touch him. But there’s an ocean between us, and I’m not sure it can be crossed with something as easy as a phone call or a plane ride.
Yet I’m willing to try.
He doesn’t know this yet, but this time I’m the one with the power. And maybe – just maybe – if the air were cleared and all our secrets bared, there could still be a chance for us.
And this dirty, filthy thing between us might end up being love after all.
He took another step toward me, and I started to step back, but there was a counter behind me, so I had to stay put. And maybe I wanted to stay put. He was only a foot and a half away from me now.
“But I haven’t lied to you, Sabrina.” His gaze never left mine. “And I’m not lying when I say I don’t give a fuck about anybody else’s cunt but yours.”
We stood there, not touching, not speaking, each of us standing our ground. But I had no basis to keep my position, and it felt like he’d won so much already.
I couldn’t back down.
“Prove it,” I said.
His expression flared, his eyes growing dark and mean, and I realized what I’d done. Donovan wasn’t one to be provoked.
I’d just invited the devil out to play.
“Unzip your skirt and put your hands on the counter behind you.”
My heart hammered and my belly twisted. My panties were embarrassingly drenched all of a sudden, and I wanted him. But I stood completely still. “I didn’t—”
He cut me off. “No talking and unzip your skirt.”
My mouth slammed shut, but I still didn’t move. If I moved, I’d be asking for this. But if I talked, I’d be telling him to stop.
And I didn’t want this to stop.
I just didn’t want to ask for it because I was stubborn and stupid for wanting him in the first place.
But he would give it to me without the words, without my obedience. Because he knew me. He knew what I needed.
With his eyes never leaving mine, he found the zipper at the side of my waist and pulled it down. After that, the skirt was loose enough that all he had to do was tug it once and it fell easily to my feet. He nudged his knee against my inner leg, and automatically I stepped that foot out of the pool of material on the floor, widening my stance.
He gave a nod of praise, sending a jolt of warmth through my entire body.
Then he bent down in front of me.
Suddenly, breathing was harder than it should have been. My chest moved up and down, air passed through my mouth, but I couldn’t get enough of it to my lungs.
And he hadn’t even touched me yet.
The sight of him alone—Donovan Kincaid, one of the most powerful men in the world, down on his knees in his black Ermenegildo Zegna suit—it was overwhelming and erotic, and by the time he put his hand at the back of my knee, I was already trembling.
Once again Laurelin Paige used her signature voice to tell a brilliant, gut-wrenching and compelling love story that will stick with me for years to come.
Nobody writes a broken hero the way that Laurelin Paige does. Nobody writes these men who are so unbelievably fucked up yet somehow have an incredible amount of love to offer (and that I’m absolutely willing to accept!) These are the men I’m not supposed to love but that I can’t help but become obsessed with. This is Donovan Kincaid.
My biggest fear going into this book was that there would be no real push and pull between Sabrina and Donovan after everything they’d gone through and the things that Sabrina discovered. I did NOT want them to just fuck it out. I did not want Donovan to be magically healed by Sabrina. If I’m being completely honest I will tell you that at 50% of the book I was getting nervous that this story wasn’t going to live up to my expectations. Things were moving along pretty steadily and steady was not what I was looking for but I just knew that LP wouldn’t let me down.
Don’t get me wrong there was plenty of fucking it out. There was just enough push and pull that it felt authentic. Sabrina wasn’t a pushover and, while Donovan definitely showed growth, he wasn’t magically healed. Even better, Sabrina recognized that he didn’t need to be. However, she wasn’t a doormat for him either. There was plenty of negotiations and their relationship was far from perfect and nothing about them remained steady for long. That’s the magic of Laurelin Paige’s writing, never expect to know what’s coming.
Hurry up and read this so you can see what happens, I can’t say much else without spoiling the story so I’ll just let you see for yourself how the rest of Donovan and Sabrina’s story unfolds. As usual Donovan is broody and intense but also shows us his heart. Whether it’s real or black, I won’t say but he does have one. lol. Sabrina tries her best to be independent and strong when it comes to Donovan but will that last? Donovan can break through any barriers that woman has and I loved watching him try to prove himself. 4.5 intense and scorching hot stars.
