I want you to lose yourself. I want you to lose your mind. Anything else is an insult to my manhood.
Television journalist Chelsea Maxwell has done it. She’s secured a prime-time TV interview that will be watched by millions. But none of those viewers will see beyond the carefully cultivated facade she’s built to hide her dark past. So why do one man’s eyes make her feel naked and powerless in their gaze?
Alex Diaz has built a global media empire from the ground up and is renowned for shedding a woman’s clothes in seconds. He wants something from Chelsea, and it’s not just access to her exclusive TV interview!
Will Chelsea relinquish her hard-won control and surrender to desire? One thing’s for sure - it’ll be a hell of a show!
So part of the reason why this series appealed to me is that I love the idea of three different authors writing in the same world but writing about different characters in the world. I was looking forward to reading this book, because frankly I have spent three books waiting for Jason to get what he deserved, yes he got some small slices of justice in the first book, but he is in serious need of a legitimate take down, and it has all been building up to this book.
So my first issue with this book is that I think time wise, it starts before the second finished, so if you have read the second one you already know somethings, about certain interviews and such, and I think that kind of took away from this book a little. Yes it added to the second book, but it took away some of the suspense in this one. Which bummed me out a little.
I liked Chelsea, but part of what I liked about her is that she didn’t have a direct connection to Jason the way the other women characters in the first book did. I mean she has a more objective approach to the situation, but because of her own past she is able to empathize with the situation and by the time she is fully let in on everything, its easy to see why she would want someone like Jason to get the justice he deserves. I liked that Chelsea is such a strong woman, yes she has some things she has to work through, but as the book goes on you can see her really starting to work through them, and it’s so great to see.
Alex was a good guy, he and Chelsea both like to play control games with each other. I think Alex actually ended up having more growing to do in this book than Chelsea. Truth be told though, I didn’t connect to him nearly as much as I had with the other guys in this series, even though I really wanted to. I just think he could have had a stronger presence or something to make me really attach to him.
In the end, I was actually a little disappointed how quick it all ended. The whole series builds up to Jason getting justice, and it’s like someone was standing by with the closing curtain the second it was over, I would have really appreciated a good epilogue or something. Overall, I did enjoy the series, and I don’t think you can read the first two books without reading this one for sure. Chelsea really makes this book, so read it for her.
