"He wants answers.
She wants freedom.
Jocelyn and Bryce had more in common than they realized. It took me a little while to get into the book but once I got farther along, I wanted to know how things would play out.
Jocelyn was not a daddy's girl but very independent. Her life was planned out for her and she didn't have the backing from anyone to say no. She did as she was told and followed all the rules, including being with someone whom she couldn't stand. Jocelyn's father was the boss of JCC and Hunter, the "set" husband COO. These two men practically ran her life and never let up. They both embarrassed her, made her feel like she was just a child and never thought of her as an equal in the business.
Bryce on the other hand has one thing to do, get the person(s) who hurt him and his family. He is determined to fix what has happened and will stop at nothing to get it. I think that also goes for Jocelyn. They are both determined both for different reasons, Bryce wants revenge and Jocelyn wants to be free.
I enjoyed the dynamics of the book but I wanted a little more. Everything played out as expected and the HEA was great!!
She giggles and kisses my lips softly. “I live here, so I’m not escaping, frowny-face. I need to use the bathroom.” She wrestles out from underneath my hold, stretching her arm to the chair beside the bed. Sitting up on the edge, she slips on a satin robe before standing.
“Why are you covering up that body, babe? I was already hard waiting to watch you go,” I tease…except not at all teasing.
“What?” She glances over her shoulder with a sassy grin. “You don’t like it?” She looks at her silky attire and runs her hands over the robe enticingly. “I’ll have you know, I’ve been told pink is my color.” Her mouth turns down subtly the second the words escape; a faraway sadness ghosting across her eyes for a fleeting second before she quickly dismisses the thought away and fakes a smile.
A surge of nausea consumes me, a shiver elicited with the chill that creeps up my spine, the unfair devil of irony dousing me in frigid shame and guilt.
It’s her—my Jocelyn—was Devon’s…fascination, his ‘I hope she feels the same.’
I just made love to the woman my little brother never even got a chance to ask on a date.
