I have had a bit of a crush on Adam since the first book and was so looking forward to his story!! Adam is truly a tortured and damaged soul in desperate need of fixing and this paired with him being total alpha male gorgeousness completely appeals to me! But….unfortunately through most of the story (well until 2/3 in really) I was left frustrated at the constant lack of communication and unnecessary drama. I also have a problem with the 24/7 “slave” issue. There were other bits of the story that were questionable too and took the story beyond the realms of reality like hearing and talking to a ghost..what was that??!!
So that is why Adam’s book fell short for me. I will say though that I did love the characters and their respective emotions and journey’s, it’s the massively screwed up way they went about it I had a problem with. As for the yummy scenes all I’ll say is HOT!!!!
Adam is 25 years older than Karla and is in major denial about his feelings for her. He keeps rescuing her, the first being when she was 16, and they have kept in touch ever since. Adam feels extremely protective of her and she is a life line to him and unbeknownst to him, at the start, she rescued him too on several occasions. It is not until she enters his club 9 years later that he sees her for the woman she has become and acknowledges that he is attracted to her. However he wants to continue to view her as the 16 year old he met nine years ago and is disgusted with himself for the attraction he has to her now. Adam is so scared to love again and refuses for anyone to get close. His insecurities and troubled soul has built a brick wall round him for protection which results in actions that completely go against the honorable man that he is.
Karla is madly in love with Adam, has been since she was sweet 16. She’d do anything to secure his love – as a man loves a woman. I truly felt for Karla, the amount of times her heart was ripped from her chest I am surprised she came out of this intact! At first I was shouting at her (well my kindle) for being weak and to stand up for herself, however I then asked myself how far would you go/what would you try to reach the man you loved and receive his love back in return??!!
So yes this story was frustrating, but I did enjoy it and Adam came good for me in the end so I am no longer mad at him LOL, it was a close call though!!
