Holy hotness! There aren't adequate words to describe Bound Beneath His Pain, except to say it was positively outstanding! From the first chapters, I was mesmerized. The plot drew me in quickly and kept me reading straight through to the end!
The characters were complex and likable, albeit frustrating at times. Micah is a real estate mogul who exerts absolute control over all aspects of his life, both professional and personal. Allie is a talented real estate agent whose company was just bought out by Micah. There's an instant attraction, but Allie isn't interested in "that kind of guy." Eventually Micah wears her down enough to agree to one date, but will Micah's secrets and darkness come between them?
This is my first book by Stacey Kennedy and the first book in the Dirty Little Secrets series. Although this is a series, the book can easily be read as a standalone, and I am 100% hooked! I have already pre-ordered book two, and November can't come quickly enough! I highly recommend this book to everyone!
I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium.
Bound Beneath His Pain is an erotic romance and the first in Stacey Kennedy's new Dirty Little Secrets series and features San Francisco property billionaire Micah and successful real estate agent Allie. The sizzle between Micah and Allie is palpable from the first moment they set eyes on each other and it is this which kept me reading. As erotic romance goes, this story is pretty tame, but I was reading it for the story and this one is good. Both Micah and Allie have inner conflicts to overcome and I loved watching them fight those battles. This was one smouldering hot story.
