16033909Ash, Jace, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Ash, it’s the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire…

When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side—extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the women he’s shared with his best friend, Jace.

But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with a woman who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled.

Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

Reviewer’s Thoughts

Wow! This was a very intense book. This series, and the three main characters themselves, touch on a lot of dark and someone disturbing themes. Of the three best friends, I think Ash is the scariest of them all. He is not the happy, fun-loving guy that I’ve seen in the previous books. He is darkly intense, obsessively controlling, and terrifying at times.

My favorite part of the book was the girls’ night out! I loved the camaraderie and the girl power and the acceptance of newcomers into their fold. It was totally hilarious! I really liked Josie’s character. She is strong, creative, and independent and quickly becomes Ash’s obsession. The sex scenes were pretty lengthy and very intense with the dominant/submissive roles.

As Ash and Josie continue to work on their very fragile relationship, old ghosts come back to haunt the guys and their women. I did not see this one coming. And what happens to rectify the situation…WOW! I can say no more! Read the book!
