Story Overview:
Lawyer Megan Connors wants a man, one that will wine her, dine her, and help her to forget the pain of a date rape she experienced as a teen. Her boss, Adam Wentworth, is just the man--tall, dark-haired, blue-eyed, and a confirmed player. He's perfect for a weekend of non-committal sex that will entice her inner woman out to play for good. So Megan devises a plan for seduction, one that will lure Adam into her arms.

Adam has been attracted to Megan since day one, but his preference for dominance and her fragile air kept him at bay. Megan's kiss under forgotten mistletoe is just the fuel his lust needs to exceed the boundaries she once put in place. He's game, but he wants more than a weekend with the vulnerable yet sexy Megan.

When the weekend is over, will Megan allow the past to keep her bound or can Adam convince her she’s strong enough to submit?


My Review:
What an amazing book. Sexy while still incredibly emotional. Megan works at the same law firm as man whore Adam and she's decided that he's just the cure she needs to get over her sexual anxiety that she's been battling since she was raped in high school. What she doesn't realize is that his man whore persona is just a ruse to keep women at bay after the sudden death of his wife two years ago. 

Now you understand why this book is emotional right?? 

But it's also extremely sexy because Adam is a Dom and he sees that Megan is a natural submissive, but with her issues that is most definitely a mine-field just waiting to blow up in his face. It's especially touchy because Adam is NOT a one-night stand kind of guy. He honestly likes Megan and he wants more, but she just wants him to help her work through things. She has no idea who he really is when it comes to relationships. The emotion of it all is written so well. As a reader, you can't help but ache for both these people. Adam wants more. Megan is just trying to heal. They are both hurting.

This isn't a long book, but there is SO MUCH packed into it. These characters have a really deep back-story as to how they both got to this place. The actual time frame on the book doesn't cover that much time (about two weeks) but it never seems to be rushed. Adam has been attracted to Megan for a long time. She's just never shown any indication to him that she also felt the attraction.

I definitely enjoyed this one. It has some good angst, some incredibly hot sex, and two characters that I just fell in love with. Another winner from Mia Downing!

Oh that sounds so good! I love when an author can make a really steamy book but get the emotions just as involved. I'll have to check out Mia now :)
