Conflicted Desire by Ava Starke

After risking her career, falling in love, and having to pick up the pieces of her fractured heart, Audrey has accepted Life Is Hard. But with a handsome new beau and mega-promotion, things are finally looking up — her future has never seemed brighter. Or has it?

If only she could escape the memory of those sultry days in Athens and steamy nights in Istanbul…

Audrey’s simmering thoughts aren’t helped when Theo, looking positively edible and moved-on, resurfaces as a media sensation gracing the covers of countless magazines. Still, she’s determined to leave him in the past and embrace her future . . . until an accidental discovery leaves her wondering if her carefully constructed world might be an illusion.

When billion-dollar-deals are on the line, lives are cheap, and it’s impossible to know who to trust. Can Audrey and Theo find the courage to open their hearts when it’s time to risk everything, or have they become too damaged to love?

Conflicted Desire is the second steamy installment of the sensual, contemporary romance Conflicted Series, intended for ages 18+.

I absolutely love this series and can't wait for the next book! Ava does an amazing job with her characters and her knowledge of the financial/business world blows my mind. So many twists and turns to keep me guessing also! Thank you again, Ava!

Really exciting book, modern take on the romance genre with lots of sensual writing and a better than average grasp of international capital markets.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This book was so good. It started right where Conflicted Interest left off so it was easy the follow. it kept me on my toes the entire time there was always so much going on it never got boring and kept me hooked from the first page to the last. so much so that it was hard to put it down to sleep. I can't wait for the third one to come out. thank you so much for letting me read this.

In Ava Stark’s Conflicted Desire the second book of her new Conflicted series, Theo and Audrey are both living their lives and trying very hard to act as though they are not affected by their previous relationship which left them both in tatters. Theo has changed. He is somewhat cold and hard and is showcased as being that way when he dismisses a current but new girlfriend from his bed and life. Shortly after he begins a new relationship and this time he’s working to be the man he knows he once was. Audrey’s job is taking off and it has nothing to do with her relationship with her boss. However, there is a whisper that things are being shaken up with Theo’s company getting ready to go public. Once this couple manages to talk out their problems regarding the break up, Audrey is determined to help bring the villains into the light. This book was very well written. It is evenly paced and held me in suspense until the very end. For a moment I thought for sure this couple were going to get their HEA. While they are definitely in a better place than they were at the end of book one, someone is still out to take over Theo’s company and their presence has cast a shadow upon this pair of lovers. If you like smartly written books, especially dealing with banking and finance, this would be an excellent choice. ARC provided by NetGalley Dual POV Safety issues No apparent triggers 2 likes

Life and relationships get “messy,” and the essence of that reality plays out in Conflicted Desires. Starke stokes the tension caused by this reader wanting Audrey and Theo to reunite against the reality of having “moved on” brilliantly. The added suspense of an international conspiracy bent on ruining Theo’s dreams helps explain why I finished this novel in one night. Conflicted Desires, book two in the Conflicted Series, by Ava Starke is a romance novel worth waiting for. Authors, especially new authors, sometime have difficulty sustaining character and plot development in a trilogy; that is not an issue for Ms. Starke in this series so far. The fact that I cannot decide which book of the series I like the best says volumes…anxiously waiting for book three: Conflicted Proposal.

Another standout release from this author that will twist you in knots before finally giving you what you've been waiting so long for. Sexy, intense, and finally sweet, this story totally had me flipping pages and losing sleep. I wanted these two to magically come together faster, but in their separation, you can tell Theo and Audrey are just as hot for each other apart as together. When their conflict finally resolves... it's a beautiful heartwarming release. SO much intensity and passion. Now I can't get them out of my mind.

Whoa! This book had more plot twists than a pretzel, but loved it. Finished it in an evening, I couldn't stop. I liked the first in this series, Conflicted Interest, and I loved this one. It moves fast, and as the previous there is a solid corporate intrigue plot. Characters are real... really real, and relatable.
