Power and Possession(Reckless #1)
By CC Gibbs
The ultimate pleasure lies in sweet surrender . . .
Brash. Brilliant. Devastatingly handsome. Billionaire playboy Rafe Contini can have any woman he wants-no strings, no commitments, no promises. But when American graduate student Nicole Parrish crashes his private party in Monte Carlo, he wants more than a casual one-night stand. He wants to possess this beautiful stranger-body, mind, and soul.
Nicole isn't interested in being possessed by any man-especially one as powerful as Rafe. But with a seductive smile and enigmatic charm, he lures her into his private world of erotic discovery and pushes her to the brink of ecstasy. In the summer days-and nights-that follow, they explore every forbidden fantasy, every willful desire, every wild, dizzying sensation. And come dangerously close to crossing the line-between love and lust, pleasure and pain, power and possession . . .
I picked this book because I wanted a hot and steamy read...like HOT! It started off like it was going to be, the main characters had great chemistry and the arrogant man was falling hard.....then we are playing cat and mouse about getting into bed! It is getting very annoying and my high hopes are falling. 30% through and nothing!! Their hemming and hawing killed the mood. Their smart-assed comments have totally ruined their chemistry. Then you throw in at random the story of his parents?! I know it has to do with the plot, but just when they were going to get down and dirty! Too much talking=not working for me! I just could not finish! It started off so well. I like that the Nicole was not a blushing virgin and wanted what she wanted...but her mouth and sarcasm yuk!! I had such high hopes!
