Date Published: May 30, 2015
Kim is a former Broadway dancer, who feels trapped in a loveless marriage to a jealous wealthy older man. He blames her for crippling him in an auto accident that he himself caused.
Kim strives to make the marriage work, despite her husband’s blame, verbal abuse and bitterness.
When she meets a wickedly handsome man on the beach, she fights not to want him, not to want a new life and not to fall in love. But Derek is seductive and irresistible—a former soldier who recently comes to town to start a landscaping business. Kim falls hard for him, and he becomes addicted to her.
Although Kim wants a divorce, her husband finds out about their affair, and devises a plot to destroy them both. They must struggle to survive a web of lies, deceit and dangerous passion.
(Due to adult themes and sexual content, this book is recommended for mature readers.)
I really enjoyed Annabel Foxx's writing style. It was very easy to follow. There were deeper issues in this novel and the characters had circumstances to overcome, but it felt like a light read to me. I loved the build of personalities in the characters and how it wasn't difficult to understand their motives and actions.
The intimate scenes are quite detailed and it adds a bit of steam factor to the novel.
I love to read and write novels. I'm also a loner, who loves to drink copious amounts of coffee--and I won't turn down a good bourbon if it's offered by a handsome man... or indeed, by any kind and generous man.
I'm a Scorpio, and I love the beach. I have a background in graphic design and creative writing. My mother kept diaries and wrote short stories about Christmas, old lovers and travel.
My cat, Count Elvis, loves cognac and Pop Tarts.
Reading on the beach is one of the great delights of life. Sun, sea and sand. Ahhh... and then I pick up a book and dive into a story. I love everything gold: golden tans, golden hair, golden sunsets and golden earrings.
My husband, Dane, is a diver and sun worshiper.
