Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Off the Clock comes a story of love, hate, and the fire that ignites when the two collide...

Dr. Elle McCray has a plan. Work hard. Be the best. And do it alone. After her ex-husband’s betrayal, she’s learned being feared is a hell of a lot easier than being humiliated. So when trouble personified, Lane Cannon, dares to flirt with her, she shuts him down cold. Too gorgeous. Too cocky. And his job as The Grove’s sexual surrogate is to sleep with patients. No, thank you.

Former escort Lane Cannon has spent enough years with people looking down on him. Stupid. Trailer trash. Rent boy. He’s heard it all. He’s worked too hard to shed his past to let some haughty doctor cut him down. But something about Elle’s ice queen act has his dominant instincts perking up and his body taking notice. He can’t walk away.

After an evening of verbal sparring turns into a night of steamy hate sex, Lane’s ready for round two. But Elle proposes a business deal. How better to keep things strictly physical than to pay him for his services?

Lane wants her, not her money. But he’ll play along in exchange for one thing—all the control. It’s only supposed to be a dirty little fling between colleagues, but these two are about to learn a lesson in love…by the hour.

One of THE BEST books I've EVER read!

One of THE BEST books I've EVER read!

If I were stranded on a desert island and could have one book with me, it would be this one. Not a cliché to be found, smart and realistic characters, excellent word choices, SMOKING HOTNESS, a steady pace and a very happy ending. I am Roni's newest biggest fan!!!

Lane is perfect. A total alpha, but he's perfectly content with letting Elle have control...except in certain situations, sexual and otherwise, then I saw his true alpha-ness (and holy moly, you WILL dump your current book boyfriend for Lane). He sees past Elle's hard outer shell and coaxes a different Elle to the surface, in spite of the times she hurt him over the time they were together.

Elle certainly earned her nickname of Ice Queen, and I enjoyed reading how Lane helped her take a very different look at things she ordinarily would have dismissed with her iciness. But, while she struggled with the realization that yeah, maybe she should be a little nicer, she stayed true to herself when a choice arose that she simply could not choose the higher road (and I don't blame her one bit...I couldn't have either).

An erotic romance for sure (heavy on the "erotic" AND the "romance"), every single moment of this book was incredibly tasteful and full of equal parts emotional and physical.

I seriously cannot say enough positive things about this book, and I will ABSOLUTELY, without a shadow of a doubt, read ANYTHING Roni writes!!!!

(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

YES!

Another absulutely fantastic book by Roni Loren. It takes place in the same setting as Marin and Donovan from the previous book, and I absolutely loved the treatment center setting. I fell in love with with the main characters and their storylines as well. They didn’t feel quite as deep as Marin and Donovan, but the book itself had a different feel to it overall, and I enjoyed their stories and dynamic just as well. The writing is fantastic, and as always the chemistry between characters is explosive and a joy to read!
