The Sebastians own this city.

Hell, they own the whole world.

All I want is one little piece of it, a corner that I can call my own.

So when my boss runs away to “find herself”, I seize the opportunity and dive head first into the Sebastian’s glamorous universe. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted—fast paced and high stakes—and, even though I don’t fit in, I’m excellent at faking it.

Until I come face to face with the man in charge, Scott Sebastian, the arrogant, playboy heir with the mind of a devil and the body of a god and a mouth I can’t stop thinking about.

He’s infuriating. He’s a distraction. He’s the man who wants me in his bed as much as I want to be there.

And, if I get too close, he’ll be the one person who could expose me for what I really am—a fraud.

**** My Review ****

Argh!!!! That ending….Holy Smokes, really???? Laurelin Paige, you are one hell of a dirty player!!! How can you leave me waiting till November? I’m pretty sure I literally screamed in frustration when I got to the end of this book. The first thing I did after devouring the book in one sitting was to check how many days until the release of the next installment. It’s going to be a real torture!!!!

Well, I usually don’t start my review with the ending of book, but rarely does a book leave me utterly shocked and panting for more. I am trying to find the right words to capture all my impressions and feelings, but I simply cannot succeed to find the right ones. This is my first book from Lauren Paige…I have to admit that she rocked my world and left me craving for more with this incredible, steamy romance that contains enough angst and deliciousness that simply drips from the pages. The scorching chemistry and banters between the main characters nailed me from the very beginning and kept me flipping the pages, indulging into that decadent world the author has so masterfully crafted.

One party, one peek, one white lie…what can go wrong? Nothing, especially if it is for a good cause. Nothing indeed, except for the attraction that can’t be ignored…

That’s the story of Tess and Scot- the modern Cinderella and her Prince Charming…well, at least a really filthy version of the fairytale.

Torn between passion and reason, dancing on the fine line between acceptable and forbidden, playing a very dangerous game… Tess puts her job and friendship on the line in order to pursue her believes. Hard-working, passionate and determined, she’s all in. But will that be enough to successfully seal the deal? Can she handle the mighty Scot Sebastian? A stunning hero- cocky, confident and bossy, sexy-as-sin and charming enough to become every girl’s dream.  And when the two meet, everything around bursts with sexual electricity and attraction that threatens to stifle all alertness…. Reason is lost somewhere halfway, the sensations dominate and the needs culminate … the desire for one touch, one kiss …. one step forward, two steps back.. and the wickedly sinful games may begin…the game of the cat and the mouse…But how will they end? I believe that puzzles every reader long after they finish reading the book.

The author has definitely managed to deliver a really engaging story, so well-written and perfectly paced as not to bore the reader at any moment. Excellently developed characters, complex and charming, combined with the gripping plot will keep the readers on the edge of their seats through this whole ride. The sexy, flirty banters will delight you and make you laugh. And the surprise that awaits you in the end … heart-stopping! I was convinced that this was a gentle love story. The author weaved this intriguing web so skillfully, mixing sweetness and tender emotions spiced with incredible passion to mislead the reader….. I failed to see the thunderbolt coming…

If you’re looking for a perfect office romance with sizzling hot chemistry, enough angst and panty melting scenes, that you should definitely not miss this one. The perfect choice that will force you to forget your reality and leave you screaming for more.
