The man was sinful. It wasn't just the looks that made him dangerous, it was the cocky confidence that dominated every move, every touch. And the frustrating yet ecstatic fact about the whole package was that he could back it all up…

Julia Campbell never knows what to expect with win-at-all-costs Brad De Luca. And she's starting to like it that way. She gave up safe, conventional relationships when she let the elite divorce attorney seduce her into his world. Now that he's determined to strip her naked of every inhibition, she's in danger of falling too deep and too fast.

But their affair begins to feel even more dangerous when a murder leaves a trail of suspicion that points straight to the mob…and Brad. Trusting a man with a bad reputation and a past full of secrets seems like a mistake. But when she's forced to make a choice, the consequences will take her further than she could ever have imagined.
I was hooked to this story, I was so glad after I finished book one that I could dive right into this one.  My gosh Alessandra can write the hell out of a story.  In this one we dive a little deeper into Brad's world, as Julia gets a chance to continue her internship with a few new perks she now has to juggle keeping this relationship under wraps if she wants the office to take her seriously. 

I loved her conversations with her friends, her spunk as a young woman finding her way in the corporate world and as a woman embracing the new aspects to her sexuality that Brad is helping her find.   She's new to this world and she's finding that as her guide he's fantastic.  The chemistry between them is off the charts and I loved reading their scenes.  They explore and as they do they find that there are things they once took for granted that they no longer do, they find new boundaries and even though they are further than before they lay down their rules.  I loved that Julia knew this was different but felt strong enough not to be too intimidated, and she knew the people around her even thought they were her best friends wouldn't understand her kink.  I loved the understanding that as much as you love your friends eventually in your relationships somethings become sacred to you and your partner and you keep those from your friends.  Not because it's bad but because this is for y'all, these moments are ones you can't explain unless the person is there with you. 

I really enjoyed the expanding into Brad's family history and why he's the way he is.  It was good to learn about the first woman who broke his heart and why he became such a celebrated bachelor.  The intrigue of his family history adding into the mystery of who killed her boss was awesome.  Danger came close and I just knew that her keeping secrets from Brad and him keeping major secrets was going to hurt them both.  I loved Martha and her place in their lives. it was great to see parts of his family and his close friends as well.  I really enjoyed the developments and how the story progressed.

I really enjoyed their exploration of each other and their boundaries.  Brad and Julia together was amazing, but when they really got kinky??? My gawd I was hooked.  I highly recommend my loves.
