Juliette Mason had it all—the perfect job, the perfect home, the perfect fiancé. She lived the perfect life. Until everything started to slowly fall apart.
Daniel, her attractive and success-driven fiancé, was the love of her life. For years she wanted nothing more than to finally walk down the aisle, to be Mrs. Daniel Clarke. But as time went by, the cracks in their relationship started to come to the surface, and Juliette found herself in a place she never imagined she would be. It was a place where she started to question everything about her life and her dreams, a place where nothing about her life made sense anymore—a place where she found Knox Taylor.
Knox didn’t count on falling in love. In fact, Knox didn’t count on anything really. He was blissfully happy living a fast life of reckless behavior, impulsive decisions, and beautiful women. He lived the perfect life of a flourishing bachelor—but then she happened.

I wish i could give this book 10 stars! A must read
This debut novel by Bella J is the most suspenseful romance I have ever read. Right from the beginning you feel for Juliette. While she seems to have it all, great job, gorgeous CEO fiancé, money, beautiful condo, housekeeper, everything. What she doesn't have is time and attention from her fiancé. So when she is dragged out to a club with her sister and her boyfriend and meets Knox, the darkly sexy alpha bad boy, you can understand why she would find him so infuriating and attractive at the same time. In proving to him that she isn't the person he thought she was, she finds she enjoys spending time with him and that he is more attentive and interesting than she thought originally as well. She realizes he is too tempting and does everything in her power to avoid him but he keeps ending up in her path. As time goes by and as Daniel, her fiancé, keeps leaving her alone, she begins to question her marriage and finds herself spending more time with her sister which leads to Knox where he attraction continues to build until the reader finds themselves rooting for Knox and as frustrated as Juliette and Knox are when she keeps resisting his advances. The characters in this novel are some of the best developed characters I have ever read and that is saying a lot. I never could have seen myself wanting someone to have an affair but the characters of Juliette and Knox seem so perfect for each other and so attracted to each other while Daniel is so clueless and puts Juliette second in every decision he makes, I found myself actually wanting her to go through with it. This is all due to the skill of the writing. She builds the suspense and attraction so gradually, careful not to go too far too soon until the decisions they make are completely understandable and seem well overdue. The challenge the author puts in front of both men and the way they respond to that challenge says everything about them and also very well planned out by the author. This is a traditional romance, not erotic, but it doesn't need to be. The suspense that built throughout this story was far more intense than any erotic romance. I highly recommend this book to any reader of romance. This book was so well written, I can't wait to read the next book in the Resplendence series.
