Damn this one was a hard book to review.
The first 50% was basically erotica,and exceptionally well done, definitely 4, maybe even 5 stars. I felt their connection even though it was an almost instant romantic attraction.
Then the night ended and I expected some emotional scenes before a a final glorious resolution. Unfortunately this is where I was disappointed.
The first thing Charlie did was act like a douchebag, not once but twice in a couple of pages. Kiss and tell? So not cool. Then to compound that by revealing that what they did was in some way kinky (and I suspect he would have said more if she hadn't said she didn't want to know). Jesus, this was her boss too. Why would you put either person in that position?
And the confrontation and resolution when it came gave me nothing that I'd not had already in the book and provided a very lacklustre finale. I didn't feel the desperation (especially from Charlie) and there wasn't enough build up before the big reveal. Personally I'd have had Trent keep catching glances of people that look like Chaz (leaving the building, or having to deliver a file up to the penthouse suite, in a nearby coffee shop) but after going up to the first few and them not being Charlie he stops chasing them even though they are Charlie. Something to build up the tension there.
And the forgiveness was too quick. And I didn't like how they resolved things, I didn't need more sexy times. I needed feelings, and I felt I'd been short changed.
