After losing her birth parents and her adopted parents Alexis Mabry is used to being alone. So after a year of horrible dates with everyone from sugar baby wannabes to cross dressers, she decides to stop dating altogether and focus on what matters most: her business and her friends in Mustang Prairie.
When she meets a handsome stranger on a trip to California she starts to wonder if its time to get back in the game.
Baxter Thompsen spent the last decade building his empire to the exclusion of everything but sex. Now tired of the socialites and starlets, he wants someone real. When he does she only wants a vacation fling and it’s up to Baxter to show her that lust is great, but love is the real prize.
Is it lust or are Baxter and Alex more than a little bit in love?
Genre: Romance / Contemporary Romance / Romantic Suspense
A sweet romantic story with suspense hidden all through it. Alexis Mabry is a successful lady with disastrous love life. She is also someone who is not fond of showing off wealth. So when she comes across Baxter who is super rich too, but does not show off, she is confused. The story takes us through the lives of two people who are perfect for each other, only if they manage to overcome the immense wealth that is between them.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The plot and the characters were well described. The story was making sense all through it. The chemistry between Alexis and Baxter is envious and dreamy. As much a perfect love story as it is possible. The couple from the previous book also plays a good role in this book. So those who are following the series will enjoy the second book more because of the good continuity in it.
However, one thing was entirely left out, which was the reason for Alexis’ distaste for successful men. There were some reference to her past love life, but it was not entirely explained. That left an empty and incomplete feeling at then end of the story. I am assuming it must be because it is a part of the series and I started reading from #2. However, all the websites suggest all the books in the series as stand alone and as having different stories. But, even though everything else was perfect, the incompleteness of the story left a bad taste when it came to an end.
