When he has opened a door that cannot be closed…
Blake Law Barrington is a man who seems pretty jaded when it comes to women. Lana Bloom has gone into a restaurant. The man she meets seems to be a jerk of the first order. Blake invites them to a party. And then we are lead into a world where we see the social lines that some of us may never cross.
The writing, to me, seemed to be a little simple. Because of this, I felt that the story moved very slowly. It seems that Georgia plays on the reader’s misconceptions about men, their money, and what they feel they are entitled too – and that includes women. But our author shows her readers the amount of love a daughter has for her mother. And this is what hooked me into the story.
This story doesn’t seem to show any connections between the two main characters – it’s all business. I wouldn’t call it a romance just because it had sex in it. At times, the sex seemed mechanical. If this book had smell-a-vision desire would be very strong indeed – but desire is not the same as romance. And a lot of the sex is left to your imagination.
Once I get to the scene where Blake has a meeting with his father, everything starts to make sense. Then it dawns on me that Georgia is a very smart author. By using her words the way she did, she shows what a sad life some rich men live. It also shows how skewed their thinking is in regards to women. This story has an interesting ending that will get you ready for book two coming out in January. What I’m interested to see about the second book is what happens with Lana.
