Ryan Justice may be her boss, but nothing will stop him from making her his. USA TODAY and #1 ebook bestselling author Alexa Riley entices with a brand-new, full-length novel.

She thinks I'm perfect. A good boss, a good man. She thinks that I play by the rules.

She has no idea who I truly am. Why I'm really here.

Paige Turner is trying to outrun her past, but there it is, tossed back in her face anytime she manages to get two steps ahead.

She has no idea what a man like me will do to get what he wants.

Her need for Ryan got in the way of revenge, took her off course. Redirected her focus. Before she knew it, he'd made his way into her life. Into her heart.

I'm dirtier than she knows. She thinks I'm good to the core, but she doesn't know the things I've done. The things I would do for her.

True love doesn't let secrets as big as these stay buried. And when the truth about Paige's father is finally exposed, Ryan will do anything to fix everything. Paige has always been his and his alone.

This second novel in the duology tells us the story of Paige (Mallory's best friend and roommate) and Ryan Justice a.k.a. Captain America's story.

I mainly enjoyed this story because of the unabashed and hot as hell sex. The story wasn't gripping, but neither was the first in the duology, so I'm not complaining. Ryan's obsession with Paige was pretty much like Oz's obsession with Mallory. Love at first sight, but the girl didn't even know the boy existed sort of a thing.

What I didn't quite like was the portrayal of murder being the answer to one's problem and that getting away with murder is easy. The idea that you needn't think twice before shooting someone to death is frankly very disturbing.

I'm giving this book 4 stars mainly because I literally cringed while reading the explicit parts, God my cheeks get red just remembering some of the scenes.



This book is not recommended for readers under the age of 18.
