This book was sent to me I exchange of an honest review, and guess what? I LIKED it!
Claire Scott‘s debut story (a trilogy in the making) is a very well written story about Gwen Taylor, a twenty-five years old Erotic illustrator.
Gwen has had a tough, tragic and abusive childhood, now that she’s on the run from her past, she suffers from excessive paranoia, panic attack and trust issues. Never staying in one place until meeting Heather and Cole. She then starts learning how to trust and open up slowly.
Heather is Gwen’s classmate, she has her own issues but she’s a sweet soul, through her Gwen is introduced to Cole.
Cole is a club owner and an amateur boxer. there’s an insta lust between the two (and LOTS of steamy scenes for sure 😉 )
The cliffhanger had me groaning almost pulling my hair out because I’m THAT impatient…No wonder I have a hard time reading unfinished books
If you enjoy erotica with suspense thriller then you’ll love this one!!
I, personally, can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
Gwen Taylor moved to Beauforde, Colorado, to start anew and to forget her past. But what she didn’t count on was Colton Underwood, a businessman and amateur boxer.
The connection between them took her by surprise, as did the intensity of their affair. But, despite all Gwen’s efforts to keep their relationship casual, she finds herself growing attached to him.
Never one to trust easily, Gwen must question if all her new-found friendships are genuine, and if the past she’s running from can destroy everything she’s built.
Drowning with guilt over something she cannot change, Gwen must face her fears before it all catches up to her
About the Author:
First and foremost, I am a reader. I’ve been in love with reading since I was a child. Ever since I read Pride and Prejudice for the first time, when I was probably too young to even understand what it was really about. For me the true beauty of a book comes from re-discovering it. I absolutely love re-reading books and seeing if I am the same person I was when I first read them, and if I can discover some hidden secret that was previously concealed from me. My love of writing stems from this love of reading, and I would truly be nowhere without it. Every day I meet new people and rediscover old ones, I learn about cultures and societies I never knew about. And to be able to create my own ones, to write the world as I imagine it is what drives me. To have no restrictions but my imagination. In particular, I love writing about complex and strong women.
