Despite Blake Landon’s controlling ways, the young and wealthy hacker finally won the trust of the woman he loves. Internet entrepreneur Erica Hathaway broke down the walls that kept her from opening her heart and her business to Blake.
Ready to start this new chapter in her life, Erica is determined not to let anything come between them, even if that means giving Blake back some of the control he craves in and out of the bedroom.
But when demons from her past threaten their future, Erica makes a decision that could change their lives forever
Dear Lord. I kind of need a cooler filled with ice to stick my head in after finishing this book. And I thought the first book was good * sheesh *. Hardpressed ( #2 ) is actually just a simple continuation of Blake Landon and Erica Hathaway´s story. And yet here I am….dying to know more about these characters and wanting more insight on their lives. You can judge me all you want for being creepy. Go ahead…. But that still won´t change my feelings towards this story.
The story was unique. Easy for the mind, and exciting as hell. How do you handle a relationship with a guy (who has more money than he can spend ) who wants to take care of you 24/7? Some women might enjoy giving up a good portion of their independence and submit to a guy. Not Erica. Erica is fine with being dominated in the bedroom but she wants to keep business and pleasure as far apart as possible. Which is ( in my humble opinion ) totally acceptable. Erica worked hard and wasn´t about to let Blake roll on over and take care of things for her. The constant fight for keeping control over her own personal issues was exhausting for Erica….but not for me! I enjoyed every single moment she fought for her control. Then the issues her close friend dealt with affected her as well and then came Erica´s dirty past into the picture. To top everything else…Blake wanted her to emotionally open up to him and give him control over the one thing that meant so much to her. In short: Erica had a tough time dealing with everything.
Personally….I´m not fond of someone wanting total access in every area of my life. If my husband ever acted like Blake….I´d file for a divorce. But it worked for this story and the characters.
Blake is a very dominating man but he isn´t the Dom – overload type. He has his beliefs and dreams and what not. All in all he´s just a good guy with special need to control. Erica is a character I prefer to see in stories. Strong, emotional, ambitious and stubborn. So, what happens when two strong people cross each other?
Many mistakes and poor decisions are made by these characters. But the question is: Can Blake and Erica over come the problems they have together? Will their issues break them apart or will they master whatever life throws their way?
A wondeful creative story about love, loss, the future and the many possibilities that can happen if you make the wrong choice.
Loved Loved Loved this book. A must have for all romance, Alpha male lovers!
