“I’m intrigued. Tempted beyond what I’ve ever been before. To know her, to open her up. To break her.”
In love, sometimes what you fear most is exactly what you need.
Laura Drake is an author. She writes bestselling paranormal romances that continue to top the charts. She is sharp. She is confident. She is in control.
And she doesn’t exist.
Samantha Jansen is the woman behind the wig, the woman most of the world doesn’t know exists. She is shy. She is insecure. She is nothing like her main character or her alter ego. She is scarred—deeply scarred—by a past she can’t let go of and a present she can’t make peace with.
Samantha’s dreams are consumed by one man, the broken hero from her books. Mason Strait is both her wildest fantasy and her most terrifying nightmare.
When Samantha meets Alec Brand, a corporate consultant, it is as though Mason has come to life. Alec is handsome to a fault, as elegant as he is arrogant, and more intense than any man has a right to be.
Samantha is soon sucked into a world that mirrors the fiction she writes. Just like her main character, Daire Kirby, Samantha finds herself unable to resist the forbidden lure of Alec. And just like Daire, she also finds that she is faced with taking a chance on a man who could either set her free or destroy her.
The scale tilts toward destruction when Samantha finds out that Alec is as much a work of fiction as Mason. And he has scars of his own, scars that could ruin them both.
**This book may be read as a stand-alone, as the story of Alec and Samantha comes to a conclusion in this book**
My honest review:
I’m going to write a short review for this one.
I was hoping to like this book, but it some how fail me. I do love the element mysteries of this book, to be honest that’s the only reason i’m able to finish this book. The writing was good the story line was simple, but I didn’t fall in love with the characters. I just felt like that the chemistry between them are not fully explored. The passions between them are often cut off short, and skipped, assuming reader would have guess what happen within the gap. The smut factor was only 2stars. I couldn’t connect to the their emotional struggles either. Yes, what happen in their past was traumatic, but the writing didn’t explore their pain throughly, thus making it not as believable. May be it was just me.
