Trust is at the heart of this emotional roller-coaster story. Carrie and Holly start off being business rivals and the enmity between them is palpable. Neither are able to trust other people or themselves due to life-changing incidents in their past. But they are drawn to each other in a way that overwhelms them. Their attraction was unbelievably intense and emotional and I was all over the place wondering ‘Will they? Won’t they?’. Samantha Hicks knows how to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. I loved her writing and how she managed to convey the feelings the women had for each other. Her characters were real and I wanted them to be together so much. The sex was off-the-scale hot and heavy and extremely effective!! An excellent first novel. 5 Stars!
I was given this ARC in return for an honest review.
