Raw. Cold. Detached. Domineering...
Paul Emerson lives life like he f*cks. It’s the only way to survive, to battle the demons forever lurking in his subconscious, to resist succumbing to the darkness that perpetually overshadows his existence. As a ruthless venture capitalist with an insatiable appetite for power and control, he has no tolerance for emotion or any tryst spanning more than a few hours. Feelings equate to weakness and weakness destroys livelihoods.
Driven. Focused. Bitter. Guilty…
Avery Hunter is tormented by what she can’t change, but letting go is never the preferred option. Her successes aren’t nearly enough to fill the gaping void in her heart and soul. No, revenge always begets satisfaction and fulfillment…except when it extinguishes the last source of brightness in her life. Karma is a bitch and irony is her evil twin sister.
Damaged. Rejected. Broken…
The woman who harbors and the man who resists. With so much baggage and even more angst, can their wounded souls finally find solace in one another? Or is their future happiness doomed to be ravaged by the lies and deceit that litter their pasts?

First impressions aren't always the right impressions Avery Hunter has worked hard to make her sister's dream come true. She is on top of the world but there's something that's still bothering her. She's alone and though she has her friends, she is lonely. Paul Emerson is a player with a capital P. He has no time nor the inclination for a relationship after being devastated by various relationships in the past. His joy is the hunt for the next big deal so why is he constantly bombarded by the thoughts of the golden-haired beauty he saved? I was so excited to see Paul get his own book after making his presence known in Unlikely Venture. Let's face it, he needed a little redemption from that one but he gets it in a big way in this book. This is the 3rd book in the series but can be read as a standalone though it does help to read the others first. I really liked the fact that Avery wasn't a flighty floozy that bowed at Paul's feet. The opening of this book grabbed my attention and held it throughout the entire book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. The storyline was well written with a few surprises thrown into the mix.
*****4 1\2 STARS***** I really enjoyed Paul and Avery’s story. To see a new side to Paul was great. I knew he had a soft side, it was just finding out who would get him to bare it. I won't say much but I enjoyed the last several chapters and what all unfolded.
