“What are you thinking?” Ethan asks after a minute and I’m just opening my mouth to tell him when there’s a sudden commotion at the door. I turn around just in time to see Aria burst through it, looking wilder and hotter than I’ve ever seen her.
She’s dressed in a crimson sundress that hugs every one of her curves even as it makes her olive skin glow. One of the straps has slid down her arm and her hair is a just-rolled-out-of-bed mess. But it’s a captivating look on her, one that has my mind flashing to about a million different things I’d like to do with her—all of which start with plopping her firm, lush ass on my desk and burying my face between her thighs. For hours.
I’m so distracted by the thought of making her come that I almost miss the upset on her face, confusion mixed with hurt and panic and fear. Once I get past her breasts and it sinks in, though, I’m off the couch and heading toward her in an instant. “What’s wrong, Aria? Are you—”
I freeze in my tracks. “What did you say?”
“I want you to fuck me. Right now. Please.”
Ethan rockets up from his chair, shoots me a look that is half-amused, half-concerned. “I will take that as my cue to leave.”
The fact that Aria doesn’t even glance his way tells me all I need to know about her state of mind. All thoughts of Valducci and revenge disappear in my sudden worry for her.
“Baby.” I cross the last of the distance between us and pull her body flush against mine. “What’s going on? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing’s wrong. I’ve just been thinking about what you said on the phone earlier and I want it. I want all of it now.”
“It’s my experience that guys like this have trouble keeping up the letch act when they’re looking straight into your eyes. It’s a lesson I learned from my mother years ago: rich men will only give you respect if you demand it.”
“But life is full of mysteries and this is one I’m just going to have to be okay with not understanding. Because the only other option – sticking around for a while to try and figure him out – isn’t an option at all. Not for me.”
“This is the bad part of Vegas – the way bad part – and my building is one of the worst. Broken down, ill-repaired in desperate need of a couple coats of paint – or an arsonist to burn it to the ground – it’s not a good place to live.”
“It’s the please that does it. He’s standing there in the middle of my bathroom looking half GQ, half bad-ass and all gorgeous, and he’s asking to take care of me.”
“This is Sebastian controlling me because he can’t control what happened. About hurting me because he’s hurting. About using me to stave off the pain of everything that came before.”
“He says it again, a little more clearly this time. ‘I’m sorry.’ The two words I’ve never heard from him before. The two words I’ve wanted to hear for ten years but never thought I actually would.”
“And that’s when it hits me, what I wanted to teach Aria all along but what I had never internalized myself. Control doesn’t have to be about power any more than losing control has to be about weakness.”
“It’s not enough. Not nearly enough. But it’s a start, and for now, I’ll take what I can get.”
I am conflicted. I enjoyed the series, but am more than a bit irritated about the ending… as there really wasn’t one. The story seems to be on pause for the next series to start. Grrr. I call foul. I need closure and feel discontented. The installments were well written, intriguing, entertaining, and deliciously steamy. Secrets were slowly revealed and I was anxious to uncover them. I did grow annoyed with both main characters at different times… enough to want to throw my precious kindle and call them unflattering names. But I actually liked and cared for them – most of the time. I just wish I knew how their tale ends.
Author Bio: Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
