Aurora Adams has had everything in her life regimented. She's been made to eat certain foods, wear certain clothes, and only do what her mother allows...all for the sake of her dancing career. Life is lonely and cold, but she doesn't have a choice. When her mother decides to send her away for a year of training it's just another blow to her already fragile heart.
Noah Hill has never had passion for much in his life. But one look at Aurora and his world ignites. From the moment he sees her on the stage, he knows she has to be his. When her mother stands in the way, he has no other choice.
Will Aurora finally have a chance to break free, or is she trading one cage for another? When temptation leads to devotion, maybe the truth isn't so important.
Warning: He's a billionaire set to kidnap the ballet dancer he sees on stage. What could possibly be any more wonderful!? Get your buns ready because we've got you covered!
I know it hasn’t been THAT long but I swear it has felt like a year since I last read AR. Like always, these babies come to me at exactly the right time. I needed this book to give me the escape that I desperately needed.
Shall we check off all the things that we love and look for in AR books? Sure, let’s do it. Over the top? Check. Alpha? Check. Sugary Sweetness? Check. Filthy mouth? Yes, please. Oh, I mean…check. And we can’t forget the virgin! Check.
I will admit that there might be a scene in here that will put some people off. All I ask is that you go into AR books knowing that it’s going to be so out of the normal and over the top. Don’t try to analyze it and apply it to every day things. That’s not what these stories are for. At least they aren’t for me. It’s always about a fun escape that involved super hot scenes and ultimately love.
I enjoyed both Noah and Aurora. I liked that Noah was the over the top alpha who laid eyes on Aurora once and he became obsessed. His plan to get her was a little unorthodox but you could tell from the beginning that everything he did, he did for her.
Aurora’s story showed vulnerability and girl who just ultimately wanted and deserved love and affection. I can see why she reacted the way that she did to certain situations. I think some people might be annoyed with her at times but I actually liked her. I didn’t need her to have a strong back bone or be this powerful woman. I just wanted her to get the love she had always craved.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I’m always excited with I get my hands on an AR book. If you like over the top alphas who have a dirty mouth and a devotion to the women they love, then this is the book for you!
