“Carson, I’m freely offering myself to you right now. Please,” I plead fearlessly. I’m shameless and not above begging for him to take my body. Who is this sex-craved woman anyways?
“Sweetness, you’re making it very difficult for me to resist you, to control myself.” He lowers himself intimately close to graze his soft, moist lips on my forehead, bridge of my nose and then intensely over my lips. The urgency of his need for me is translated through his kisses. Biting down firmly on his lower lip, it appears that he’s forcing the strength of his will to remain tame. Our eye contact is broken when he seals his shut to blind the temptation lying underneath his body. His hands grip the sheets desperately, clawing and then fisting. I think this is his last hope of hanging onto his dignity. “Goodnight Lily, only offer your body to me when you believe it in your heart,” he murmurs and rolls off of me. Lying flat on his back, he attempts to steady his labored breathing.
Love isn’t easy to forget even if you’re determined to never feel it again. It has a way of finding you when all hope is gone, resurfacing tender emotions you’ve buried deep in your core because the pain of acknowledging them is too much for you to handle.
Carson Bradley, CEO of a powerful pharmaceutical corporation is rich beyond boundaries with a missing soul. His heart faded away fifteen years ago with the death of his first love. He strives every day for the sake of his cancer research because he’s determined to eradicate cancer forever.
Lillian Ly is a humble, young medical student whose kind and generous heart is as vast as the universe. Being raised poor by a single parent; she matured quickly and respected the sacrifices her mother made for her. Lillian’s determination leads her down a stringent five-year path with no room for love.
When their paths cross at an unlikely place thousands of miles away from home, they both realize that fate has brought them together, and Carson will never let anything or anyone tear them apart. He knows how desolate life is without love and refuses to return to that dark place ever again.
Lillian enters Carson’s world with the purest intention of loving him with all her heart, but discovers that his volatile world will alter her uncomplicated life indefinitely. Regardless of what obstacles are thrown in their path, Lillian and Carson will endure them all to hold onto their forever from the beginning to the end.
So if you have read Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day, This Man Series by Jodie Ellen Malpas, Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks and Stark Trilogy by J Kenner then you are simply going to love this too – I devoured each chapter and cannot believe I had it on my kindle shelf since March – kicking myself now – I have been dying for a 5 Heart Read with a strong dominating and endearing man – Carson is all that and so much more.
I am already reading the next instalment as I prepare this review, Carson and Lily rock the pages – I am now worrying about book 3 and will it be available soon?
Lily is stubborn, headstrong, independent but also fiercely loyal, smart, honest and has integrity. Her family history is riveting and I think is going to come full circle as the next two books evolve. Carson has similar traits so you can understand how their chemistry and connection is automatic when they meet.
The mystery, suspense and entaglements keep you turning the pages until your eyes can no longer stay open.
Now I am not going to ruin any of the surprise elements for you, there simply are so many and these two main characters and their supporting crew of family and work colleagues will keep you entertained, on the edge of your seat and crying at each integral turn of their journey.
Lan LLP what a fantastic tale you have woven for your first series – well done and keep it coming – outstanding romance storytelling – loved it – oh and the sex – yeah baby – H.O.T.
