Book Description:
Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Pierce’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out – move up at the nightclub she works at and marry the manager, David. He’s perfect for her because, although he’s attractive, he doesn’t get her all turned inside out and upside down like some other men have. It’s a safe plan, one that assures she’ll remain in control of her obsessive love disorder.

But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous – the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of his plans to seduce her. Avoiding him becomes impossible after he offers a business proposition Alayna can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull.

Soon Alayna’s charmed by Hudson in every way possible and the control over her old behaviors slip. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

I loved this book. I thought the characters were engaging, and I really started caring for them! I rooted for them as a couple, and was crushed by several things that happened in the book. I absolutely loved the writing style. The scenes were amazingly steamy. On Goodreads, this shows it was her first book, and I think she hit it out of the park. 

Alayna has an interesting obsessive disorder that I have never seen in a book before. She has an obsessive relationship disorder. So she obsesses about the guy that she is with to the point where she stalks them and can't stop thinking about them. It was interesting to read about her trying to maintain control of it. I like how she was take charge about it, and tried to seek help when she needed it. My heart hurt so much for her because her feelings kept getting all mixed up by Hudson. Hudson is a diagnosed sociopath. He doesn't think he can ever love, or truly care for someone like a typical person can. Alayna feels differently, and she is willing to fight for him. I can't wait to see how their relationship develops further in future books. 

I absolutely couldn't stand Alayna's brother, he was so mean to her. He never even tried to understand. All he did was make her worse by not believing in her. And Sophia (Hudson's mom), OMG she made me even more angry than Alayna's brother did. I wanted to tell her off so many times. She is an absolute horrible person. This are two broken people with major disorders, and there are some definite chinks in the support chain. This is really mentally tolling on both of them. I love how Alayna kept her head up, most of the time, and fought back. I was like you go girl! :p

If you love hot, steamy reads that have a romantic twist. You will love this book! This is definitely a book to check out.

About the Author:
Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.
