After reading the synopsis for this one I suspected it was going to be a spicy little read, and MY OH MY WAS IT EVER!! The minute Micah stepped onto the page things started to heat up, and with each page I swiped the hotter things got, and the harder I fell for the sexy mogul with a VERY naughty side!! He was everything you want in a alpha and so much more, he exuded power, gave off a strong air of sensuality, commanded your undivided attention, and did all he could to hold it long after the last page was turned!! This was my first time reading something by this author, and I have to say Ms. Kennedy just turned me into a lifelong fan with this seductive little tale, it had me completely captivated from start to finish!!!
If you life your fairy tales a little on the naughty side, and equipped with an domineering alpha that is sure to make you weak in the knees, then I HIGHLY recommend you acquaint yourself with Mr. Holt, he's sure to leave you tingling in all the right places!!
