Notorious celebrity playboy A.J. Morgan has more emotional baggage than notches on his well-used bedpost, but bleached blonde, silicone-enhanced three-ways and excess of whiskey are all the therapy he needs.
Live to indulge, indulge to fill the voids.
Those are his rules…. until he meets cunning financial analyst-slash-sexy club singer Lisa Embry, a woman whose heart is surrounded by more barbed wire than a high-security prison.
Rules? What rules?
One lust-filled romp with his female alter-ego turns A.J. into an addict in need of his next fix and he’ll pay any price for another hit.
But he soon finds out Lisa has her own rules… ones that can never be broken.
This was my first book by Kristen Luciani and I was excited seeing that it was a standalone and I could jump right in! AJ and Lisa are both strong characters with an instant connection.
AJ kept himself sheltered from relationships and commitment. It was his way of coping with his past…
“His emotions were paralyzed. It was the only way he could get through each day. Numbness. It was his self inducing drug.”
He was persistent with Lisa, always trying to move forward with her. To start Lisa was resistant, she had a plan and it did to include getting involved with AJ for sure. Her body had other plans…
“She wasn’t like those other dippy girls who’d swoon because a few suggestive words and winks were exchanged, was she? Her head screamed no offing way, but her body was on a different chapter..in another book.”
As the book went on they both pushed and pulled, back and forth. Something changed in both of them and things began to all into place. It was a good journey to join them on.
All in all the story was good, although I had a hard time connecting with these characters. I kept feeling like I was missing something, details or extensions of the chapters, can’t quite put my finger on it. It did leave me wanting more from Kristen though. After finishing the story I want to know more about her other characters and I will be venturing (hehehe) into them soon!
