Stay away from her.
The words burned against my brain, searing hot. Then another thought, more dangerous than the first.
Tie her wrists, brand her, teach her.
She was wearing a dress that was a size too small, and I knew immediately she didn’t have a boyfriend waiting for her at home, because no man would have let her out of the house in that.
The dress was red. Short. A sweetheart neckline that was supposed to make her look innocent, but did nothing except push her full curves up and over the material. Her hair was dirty blond and long, tousled around her shoulders.
She was sipping a glass of champagne and looking around nervously, her wide eyes flicking from person to person at the party, as if she were afraid she was going to get caught.
What have you done, bad girl? Something you should be punished for?
My palm burned as I imagined taking her over my knee, that short little dress pushed up, the place between her legs pulsing.
The feeling of desire I had looking at her was like an electric shock to my soul.
My instincts said to leave her alone, that this would end in nothing but tragedy. My instincts had always served me well in the past.
But this time, I decided to ignore them.
An innocent girl.
A ruthless man.
An inevitable, sordid devastation…
Though the storyline has been overly used, especially when dealing with “Billionaire Dominants in Business”, Hannah Ford was able to draw me in because of the secrets being held by Landon Sheer. He is so much more than he is portraying and little by little I’m sure all of them will become known to the readers.
Landon spots Aven at one of his office party business functions and knows she doesn’t belong there. Aven and her friend have crashed the party so she can ask Landon Sheer to help find her sister, Violet, who has disappeared. Aven believes Violet is with Landon’s brother but doesn’t know how to locate him.
Landon tells her he will help IF she will give into him, sexually, and she agrees UNTIL she sees the dark blue scarf with the “V” initial on it behind Landon’s bed. At that point she gathers up her clothes and leaves the hotel and walks home.
This was the end of the first book (if you can call 45 pages a book) so I purchased the second in the series, Sheer Torment, which I will comment on later.
Be warned that there are a LOT of typos and misspelled words but for 45 pages I overlooked it although it was bothersome.
You know how I am with covers and this one looks GOOD until you learn that Landon Sheer is a clean-shaven man. Just saying!
