4 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, suspense, and twists & turns, and heartbreak. This is Ari and Dane’s story. Ari is a planner. She is now working at Dane’s hotel. He wants to keep her close. The chemistry with these two is off the charts. Things are about to get crazy. With Dane’s past coming for him can he prove his love to Ari while also protecting her from the threats? Will Ari put up with Dane’s protectiveness? Or will she fight him on it? When Ari seems like she is against Dane’s way will he be able to get her to see things like he does? The epilogue of this book leads you wo believe there is more to come with this story. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book.

Ari was a wedding planner. When at one of her weddings, a man made unwanted advances. Another man came to Ari's rescue. His name was Dane. This was an excellent plot and overall story. I loved the characters. I couldn't put the book down until I finished it. The twists and turns for Dane, as well as Ari, were just so perfectly orchestrated and overcome. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**

Dane captivated Ari from the first moment their eyes locked. Every second thereafter proved they were either fated for love...or devastation. It was a little scary how my body trembled and my breathing wouldn't return to normal. But I couldn't escape the intensity of our desire for each other--and how vibrant and alive he made me feel. Like I'd merely existed before. Gotten by. Now I was acutely aware of my surroundings. Of myself. Of him. Of every sensation blazing inside me... Ari DeMille has spent her life focusing on the details and planning down to the minute. Haunted by her parents' ugly divorce, Ari believes the only way to prevent emotional scars is to always maintain control. But when the devastatingly handsome-and powerfully dominant-Dane Bax, her new boss, pushes Ari's boundaries, she must learn to shatter the ties that bind her if she is to sate her new found desires... But giving into insatiable lust comes with a price. Dane's luxury hotel business is threatened by a consortium of dangerous men who threaten everything Ari holds close. And as the stakes are raised, Ari is treacherously close to losing all control of her life...and her heart. Review: This book is not what I expected, and in a good way. There is a lot more going on in this story than just an alpha male and his young ingenue. What I expected was straight-up just a guy getting through a girls defenses and he does do that, but there is mystery and intrigue going on in this story too. I think that if it did not have that added mystery to the story it could have fallen flat really soon. After Ari lets down her defenses (a little too quickly, but what the hey) you think the story will be wrapping up, but then things start happening to Ari and 10,000 Lux and the mystery takes off. I have to say I did find it a little goofy that Dane is part of an "Illuminati" like group, though it is done in the context of the story and propels some of the tension. The last 25% of the book is full of action and drama. The story is told from a single POV, Ari's and it was kind of nice since all the books I have read lately have multi-POV's. I liked Dane but with it being from Ari's POV, it did not seem like we got to know him well enough since it was Ari's POV. But, what is not to like? He is rich, smart and attractive. This is seemingly a one and done story until you read the epilogue and then that flies out the window. So look for another book because after that, this cannot be the end. Well, now I will definitely be looking for the next book. 4Stars *Received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

5 Stars are not enough! This is an amazing love story with all the excitement of a mystery/suspense thriller. Dane and Ari both fall in love in a breath-taking moment. No matter how much Ari fights it, she is "burned deep" by the passion and mind boggling emotions they both share. Neither one has ever felt this way about someone. As Dane tries to protect Ari from harm, they both fall irrevocably in love. All that is left is to admit their love, forge a deeper understanding and move ahead fighting the forces that will stop at nothing to get Dane's newest project. The opening of the private membership resort 10,000 LUX has been Dane's dream. There is a lot of money riding on this wonder of the world resort and greedy hands cannot stand they are not part of it. As Dane and Ari prepare for the grand opening, a series of expensive and life-threatening incidents keep occurring. In the midst of all this turmoil, Dane steps up his courtship of Ari and the love scenes between these two are like a five-alarm fire! I loved the writing, the plotline, the characters... I loved everything about this book! The story does not end at the end of this book. There is more to come and I do not how I will be able to hold on until then!

This was a sizzling hot story that grabbed me early in and didn't let go! Dane Bax is power, dominance, influence, and sexy as hell. When he sets his sights on Ari DeMille both professionally and personally she doesn't stand a chance. He offers her the opportunity of a lifetime, event manager for the new highly luxurious hotel he is opening. He also let's her know in no uncertain terms that he wants her too. Should she turn down one or both of his offers??? When it seems someone is sabotaging the project, will Dane be able to keep her safe?? This book is filled with mystery, excitement, and a whole lot of sexy times. I highly recommend it!
