Once upon a time there was a totally ordinary boy who fell for a cold, beautiful prince. Only it's not a fairy tale, it's my life. The prince is a billionaire called Caspian Hart. And we're trying super hard to live happily ever after.
He's everything I want, need, and can't resist: a man who looks like a god and bangs like the devil. Except he's still got his rules and he's still got his secrets . . .
But if there's one thing Caspian's taught me it's that you should never settle for less than you're worth. And I'm worth his trust. I have to show him that I see him. That I'm not afraid of his passion, or his power, or his past. And that I won't settle for less than everything.

This is book #2, in the Arden St Ives series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order. Arden's story continues with his on and off again relationship trial with Caspian. He puts himself out there in the hopes that he can help heal the coldest of hearts. While it seems a good patch for a time, there is always the human factor. Caspian does not want to be fixed, nor does he want to come across weak. His view of Arden trying to keep him close is skewed by those who have claimed to love him before. This would take all day and a slew of psychoanalysis to try and explain. For now, we must accept he is not ready to move on. This story was so good and had the upswing going for it. There was heat, passion, love, and so much more. I was very pleased to finally see character development in many of the characters involved. I cannot wait to read the next installment and hope the author hurries and has pity on me. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange of an honest review by Netgalley and its publishers.
Arden and Caspian come from far different worlds, and trying to create a relationship amongst those two worlds is very trying for both of them. Arden was not raised in a world of finer things, and being with Caspian means he is completely surrounded by it, and as much as he tries to embrace it, the more he realizes he has no idea what he is doing half of the time. There are expectations to be met, families to answer to, and he is certain he isn't handling it well at all... but he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Caspian in his life. Caspian thinks he doesn't deserve to have someone like Arden in his life, he is a hardened man with certain tastes that aren't meant for everyone and he is beginning to think Arden isn't quite meant for his kind of world. His family doesn't approve of his relationship with Arden or his eccentric tastes and they are constantly trying to drive a wedge between them. But Caspian isn't quite ready to let him go... In this second installment you will delve deeper into the worlds of these two well crafted characters, and follow them as they try to maneuver through their very different worlds, and try to find a way to create one of their own. Of course, there are a lot of obstacles for them to conquer and along the way they start to lose sight of what is important to them, but their growing attraction and feelings for one another quickly remind them what is at stake, and it drives them to fight a little harder. This erotic and emotionally rich read will push you to your breaking point and have your emotions swirling throughout, and of course leaves you wondering if these two will ever find a way to be truly happy. I have to say this series has been a wonderful discovery for me, it has pushed me out of my comfort zone, opened my eyes a little, and given me a glimpse of a literary world I may just like after all! Highly recommend you get your hands on this one, and take this journey with these two wonderful characters, you will not be disappointed with what you find. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
