This was originally a serial, so I am going to review each part separately as it was originally published.
Part one: The Seduction
Jessica and Dane meet under mistaken identity (she thinks he is the ex-boyfriend that she's still pining over) but hit it off enough to go to dinner together. Going to dinner leads to a heated night of passion. Jessica doesn't want an awkward morning after scene so she slips out of her hotel room with only a note. But when a job lands her back into Philadelphia, Dane's city, she can't help but think about him. And wouldn't you know, the new job lands her right in his path.
You can obviously tell that this story is just getting started. There's hints of BDSM in here, with Dane wanting to make a sub out of Jessica although she's not used to giving over control to someone in bed.
I knew that they were going to cross paths again in some relation to this job, so we'll just have to see what happens next.
Part two: The Morning After
So, Jessica goes back to Philadelphia for her new job and guess who her boss is? Yes, you guessed it Dane. She will be his personal assistant. But will she be able to resist him? She needs to keep their relationship professional, but is that an impossible task?
Interestingly enough, Jessica's ex-boyfriend Storm keeps coming up. He's a musician in her brother's band who broke her heart when he up and left her without an explanation. And I see where this is going from a mile away. Are you with me?
Needless to say, I enjoyed this second installment although I've got a pretty good idea where this is heading. I'm interested to see how that's going to be introduced into the plot.
Part three: Perfect Storm
So, things are going along fine with Jessica and Dane's "arrangement". They are getting it on a lot at the office. But, don't you know that's way too easy??
In walks a blast from Jessica's past. Two guess on who it is. And how do you think he knows where Jessica works?
Part Four: True Lies
Storm is back. What does that mean? What happens with Jessica and Dane? Things get a lot more complicated with that. Just when I thought things were going well with Dane and Jessica, a monkey wrench is thrown into the mix. I think I know where this is headed but I'm not sure how I feel about it. We'll have to see what happens in the ext part.
Part Five: Entangled
Jessica is torn between two men. Both of them hold her heart in different ways. She has to decided who she is going to choose, but the decision is proving to be incredibly difficult.
So, yeah, this one ended exactly the way I predicted. I'm completely ready for the last chapter in this saga.
Part Six: Forever
Oh my goodness, I don't think I've encountered characters more stupid than these three in some time. GAH, it was so frustrating reading this last installment. I was hoping things would get more straightforward, but seriously, they just got worse. While I knew where this was headed, I wasn't exactly sure of how it was going to end and it was pretty bad. Just seemed a bit thrown together over all.
I definitely liked the first parts better than the last so I'd give them 3.5 STARS and the last parts 2.5 STARS. So ultimately I end up giving this on 3 STARS.
