Thalia is twenty-one and has just finished her sophomore year of college. Her new boyfriend, Liam, invites her to spend the summer with him and his family, so as she’s been unable to find a local job to keep her at college, Thalia jumps at the chance. Liam tells her that she can be his guest at his brother, Jack’s, wedding at the end of the summer.
Jack is twenty-five and feels as though he’s drowning. He’s engaged to Mia, against his will, because it’s always been drilled into him, family comes first. Jack’s studying for a law degree, and wants to go out on his own once he graduates, specializing in criminal law. His father wants him to accept a junior partnership in the law firm owned jointly by him and Lewis, his fiancées father, to practice family law.
Then he meets his brother’s girlfriend, Thalia, and he can’t get her out of his head. He needs her to keep her distance, because every time she smiles in his direction, he wants to carry her to his room and do really naughty things to her.
Then Saturday night arrives and Liam takes Thalia to a new bar that has opened where she discovers Jack’s big secret. By day he’s the good looking, slightly older brother with a chip on his shoulder, who gives her hot looks, and by night he’s Phoenix, singer/guitar player for bad boy group ‘Deception’, who makes her sizzle to the core!
He has muscle. He has tattoos. He has piercings. He has a mouth that makes her panties wet every time he opens it. He is supposed to be getting married. He is also her boyfriend’s brother...
His pierced nipple was right in front of my face. I grinned, leaned in and licked him. I felt him shudder against me. I wanted to explore. I moved my hand that was resting on his back, and stroked up his side to his nipple and rubbed.
He growled. “Thalia…”
Taking his nipple and piercing into my mouth, I flicked the silver ring with my tongue then lapped at his nipple, pushing him onto his back with me sprawling over his chest.
He kept groaning, holding my head in place, while I moved to his other nipple, giving it the same treatment, before moving back to the pierced one. I couldn’t get enough of him.
His cock had started to twitch between my thighs, as I started to move south with my hands and mouth.
Phoenix had the body of a God, all hard muscle, with no body hair. While I licked down his body, his stomach muscles quivered, his cock was rock hard against me, and his nipples were hard pebbles. Every time I flicked the silver ring, he’d break out in goose bumps.
Then his pierced cock came into view, and this time it was my stomach that fluttered. He was hard as hell with the tip weeping, trickling down to the silver. I licked my lips.
He arched his hips into me. “Thalia, I need you, babe,” he groaned.
Kneeling between his thighs, I admired the view. I could see right between his legs to his hairless balls. He was watching me through heavily lidded eyes. I grinned, leaned forward and placed my hands on his thighs. Teasing the tip of his cock with my breath, I smiled at his groan, before I licked him from root to tip like an ice cream cone.
He nearly bolted from the bed.
I licked back down the length of him, sucking one of his balls into my mouth, while I smoothed up and down his cock with my hand. Gripping him tightly, I pulled slightly to the root and keeping my hand there, massaged his other ball in my mouth. His thighs started to shake as I kept my hand tight around the root of him, while I licked the pre-cum up.
“I’m going to make you come by using my mouth on the head.” I quickly sucked the tip into my mouth and kept flicking the silver bar with my tongue, trying not to grind my pussy against his leg. With Phoenix under me, letting me do what I wanted to him, I was so damn wet and aching.
“Get that pussy up here.”
After a few dates at college, Thalia agrees to go home for the summer with Liam. While she likes him, she thinks of him more as a friend then boyfriend at the moment but agrees to see "where things go". What she didn't expect was to go home and meet Jack, his brother.
Jack has been forced into a life he doesn't want. Becoming a family court lawyer for his father's law firm, marrying Mia-who he doesn't love, and giving up on his own personal interests like music. When his brother comes home for school from the summer all of a sudden he's finding it harder to keep his wants and needs hidden to please others.
There is definitely an instant attraction between Jack and Thalia. You can feel their chemistry but they both know they need to stay away from each other. With weeks to go until Jack and Mia's wedding Mia, Liam, Jack, and Mia are forced to make a decision to stand up for themselves or live unhappily in lives forced upon them.
I REALLLLLLY wanted to love this story the way I loved Lexi Buchanan's first book, but while I did enjoy it, it just fell a little short for me. I enjoyed the characters, each had their own distinct personalities that made you love them, but the story itself just felt extremely dragged out. Too much "I love you but I can't be with you" and a lot of unnecessary drama that seemed thrown in there just to lengthen the book.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series because I really enjoyed the characters, I just hope some of the "extra" stuff is reduced.
*Review by Lauren
I was born in Bolton, Lancashire within the United Kingdom, where I lived, and worked at the University of Bolton. In 2010, I moved to Ireland with my husband, four kids and pack of animals.
We are now settled in a lovely town, in County Cavan. The kids love their schools, once they get there that is.
My eldest daughter, is on the Irish Junior Archery Team, and spends her time training. At least she does when her dad can get her off her ipad, reading or listening to music.
I have recently joined the book review blog, Book Addict Mumma and made a wonderful new friend in Kristy Louise Garbutt, my new boss!
My kindle is loaded with too many books to mention, as I absolutely love to read when I have the chance.
My all time high would be to stand at the foot of Mount Everest in the Himalayas.
