No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.
Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.
Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.
Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.
As I said in book 1, this book isn’t scandalous to me as I don’t consider this a true taboo romance. Therefore, all the secrecy seems shallow and motivated more at the loss of financial benefits than public outrage.
Dallas and Jane have acknowledged their feelings for each other but can only revel in their clandestine love affair in secret.
At the same time, they work together to uncover the mastermind before a traumatic incident in their past. This book didn’t really advance the plot that much once you take out the copious amount of sex that Dallas and Jane were having.
The one thing I truly enjoyed was Jane evolving from the submissive, needy, slightly pathetic girl to a more confident and stable woman. She started standing up for herself and stating what she wanted. I think this story is more about her growth, healing and seeking justice than her romance with Dallas. But the ending of this book was encouraging.
My interest in the plot lies in the mystery and not the romance because I didn’t buy the forbidden love thing. I must admit to growing impatient while reading this book because I had hoped to have more information about the antagonist. I am hoping that book 3 will finally answer all the questions I have.
