Darius Bennett can’t live without supreme control. A self-made billionaire, he’s rich enough to get anything—and any woman—he wants, yet he’s still haunted by a broken relationship. Five years ago, Darius let Taylor Erikson go because he knew he could never give her what she truly wanted: his heart. But the moment Taylor walks back into his life, bruised and beaten, Darius blames himself. To make good on his betrayal, he vows to help her heal—in and out of the sheets.
Once upon a time, Darius was Taylor’s world. Now his fierce embrace is exactly what she needs to get back on her feet. But Taylor pays a heavy price for her sizzling nights with Darius. As the emotional ties become stronger than ever and the paparazzi hunt her down for their next juicy story, Taylor must face some hard truths. They can’t go back. And to move forward, the key to loving Darius isn’t about keeping his secrets—it’s about exposing them.
Darius and Taylor. they were the story I wanted to read the minute I met Darius. There was something so compelling about him. And then I met him in this book. And he was even better than I was expecting.
I enjoy second chance romance, the draw of the past combined with the "now" and the reason that they were not able to stay together is one of my favorite emotional journeys. And the journey with Taylor and Darius was a lot of fun, it was compelling and it was sexy.
The pacing of the novel was excellent, and it flowed from point to point very well without skipping things that seemed important. The writing was strong and the dialog believable.
The book is a standalone, and you don't need to have read the other books to enjoy this one, but I do think it gives it a depth, so I recommend reading the others, even though it is not necessary.
I recommend this book.
