I kept passing on this series for months and months and months, and now I can’t believe I did that. Seriously, what is wrong with me?
This is a hot, hot, hot series. Blake is your perfect alpha. He’s drop dead gorgeous, he’s smarter than smart, and to top it all he’s a self-made millionaire. I mean, what else can anyone ask for, right?
Then, you have Erica. A recent college graduate, finding herself in the world, except she’s not exactly your fragile heroine. While in college she launched a fashion app, think of Pinterest, and business is growing so unlike her best friend, who got a job in NYC, and left Erica hanging with the marketing of her app, Erica wants nothing more than to focus on her business. She wants it to thrive, and grow, and basically become a success.
She stumbles upon Blake one night when she’s leaving a restaurant, little does she know he’s one of the investors she’d be pitching her company to in the next couple of days. When she does, Blake passes on the opportunity to invest in her business. She doesn’t take this lightly, so she ignores him when he tries to ask her out.
Blake isn’t used to hearing no, so he pursues Erica until she gives in. There’s a lot of back and forth and misunderstandings. Erica struggles trying to keep control of her business and life. On the other hand, Blake struggles with being okay not always being in control. Sometimes all their arguments get tiring, but the sexy time is so freaking hot, the arguments are worth it.
Blake is known hacker, though he doesn’t do any hacking anymore. The thing is that his past won’t leave him alone and there seems to be bad blood between him and another guy who’s also one of the investors in the ventures company he’s part of. The way the story is going, it leads me to think there’s something greater between him and his archenemy that will be unveiled in the next few installments.
This is a great series for fans of Sylvia Day, E.L. James, and J. Kenner. Somewhat similar story lines, young millionaire meets struggling recent college graduate. So if you’re not tired of reading that kind of trope, then this may be a good series for you.
