Synopsis:

Refuse to compromise.

Hudson Winters is in control of every aspect of his world. From his earliest
memories, he's been driven to succeed. Starting from nothing, he built an
empire based on opportunity and intimidation.

Personally, professionally, and sexually - he ensures the reins are always
in his hands.

He never counted on a woman like Gabriella Hernandez.

From the moment she steps into his building, she proceeds to shake up his
entire existence. Her very presence causes him to question everything about
himself, his relationships, and his future.

This story features characters readers fell in love with in "The Barter
System" and gives you a chance to sit down and catch up. Prepare to be
twisted up and knocked around a bit.  Another hot, emotional read from
Always the Good Girl, Shayne McClendon.

NOTE: This story contains explicit sexual scenes and language and is
intended for mature audiences only. Do not read this novel if intense sexual
situations offend you.




REVIEW: 


I liked the book, but can’t say that I was deeply moved by it. I don’t know what prevented that, but maybe just that I knew from the third of the book how it all would end. I am not sorry I read it, but I am not all that happy that I read it, instead of reading something else. This review will be short and well it is up to you to consider reading it or not.

The story follows a Latina girl – Gabriella who was robbed and who comes to New York to find love. She meets Hudson Winters a person she thought she is in love with, but she sees that she was tricked, because she doesn’t know a thing about real Hudson. No matter how much the story follows Gabriella, in reality the plot is all around Hudson and Natalia. All three are main characters, but somehow Hudson and Natalia are brighter. The sole purpose of Gabriella is to put those two together, to make them see that they love each other more than best friends do. And well happy ending is for those two not for Brie.

The book should have been intense, but somehow I didn’t feel it. No matter how much Hudson was swearing and saying he would do that and blah, blah, blah, I had a feeling he was just a phony. I couldn’t feel him behind his words and that was breaking my image of him.

I hope I didn’t ruin anyone’s expectations. It’s what I thought about the book. I guess, it was just not my read, but maybe you will love it. So it’s up to you to grab your copy now and get acquaintances with Gabriella, Hudson, Natalia and others. I wish you happy reading. And don’t forget to share your thoughts.

XOXO

Katie
