The greatest pleasure comes from losing control…
Noah Caldwell has spent ten years biding his time for the chance to tell his best friend Raven Crowne the truth. He wants her. With the threat that brought him to her in the first place finally behind him, they begin a hot affair he's only dreamed about. And reality is far better than fantasy. Yet beautiful Raven has her own dark history, one he's trying desperately to release from her. But as their passion deepens and turns into more, his past rises up from the shadows to claim one last victim…and Noah could lose the only person he can't live without.
“Somehow he’d unraveled her fears and pushed her past where she never thought she could go. It had never been like this before. Intense, connected. Freeing.”
Let me say, this book had a little bit of everything and had me engrossed from beginning to end. Super steamy scenes, friends to lovers, secrets, intrigue. I seriously could not put this book down. Noah and Raven are brimming with mystery and dark pasts that has you guessing for most of the book.
This is a friends to benefits to lovers type of read that is definitely unlike anything I’ve read before. These two have been friends for ten years and Noah finally takes that step to change their relationship into something more, if only for a month’s time. Raven, scared of losing their friendship but unwilling to let it go, agrees and so begins some seriously hot scenes that will have you wanting a cold shower frequently. They’re erotic and yet, more than that, they’re emotional and touching. Noah starts to realize that one month with Raven will never be enough for him and will do anything to make her recognize that there can be more between them. However, they both hold secrets that they will have to work past if they can ever have a future together.
Fantastic characters, great plot and I will not say anymore because this is one of those books you shouldn’t know anything about it except that it was a great read and I gave it five very large stars. A great first read of 2016. Well done, Kelly Moran. I look forward to checking out more of your books.
