they went to China. Seven glorious days alone with him, and although the trip
got off to a rocky start, they were the best days of her life.
they arrived in Beijing, the smog was so bad it stung to breathe, and they
stayed inside the hotel for two days, which in the end wasn’t a terrible
hardship because they spent most of the time naked and screwing around.
it rained, the smog disappeared and they headed to The Great Wall. On the way
there, they bought a backpack and filled it with food and water and a bottle of
champagne, and they hiked up and down the winding wall for two hours, leaving
the other tourists behind.

face, and after another hour, they stopped at one of the watchtowers to eat

long, silver necklace as far as she could see over the countryside, and as Nate
animatedly ticked off statistics about the site from the guidebook, they
hungrily devoured peanut butter sandwiches, chips and cookies.
he popped open the warm bottle of champagne and toasted to their future, and
his lips curled mischievously and eyes flashed white hot. Rebecca knew the look
well, and he hopped to his feet and pulled her up with him.

the door at the office when the mood presented. Risky, naughty, so unlike her

Rebecca, no words had been truer. No longer a doormat, she was free to step
over the imaginary line and often did, the world a thrilling, titillating
playground instead of a dull, tedious obstacle course to navigate oh-so

legs wide to the skies and lavishly licked her sodden flesh.
was nothing to compare it to, there on the tower at The Great Wall. Dizzying,
like the endless loops of bricks and stone hugging the green hillside and
snaking over the horizon, and then he pulled down his jeans just enough to
liberate his swollen cock and rammed into her. Her pleasurable cry echoed off
the knolls and he drove hard and fast. Panting, groaning and pushing her higher
and higher, they exploded together, an exquisite, blinding eruption that
blasted through her and left her crumbling in its wake.
Nathan Butler knows the score. People like him don’t get to be happy. They don’t belong.
Raised by his drug-addicted mother, Nate was kicked around a lot and abandoned and disappointed so many times he can’t afford to care about anyone or anything, his existence a tedious, monotonous two-step. Quick, quick, slow, slow, run, run, walk, walk. Over and over again.
Until he meets Mason Lord. Mase is the only person who manages to crack Nate’s defenses. For the first time in his shitty life, Nate has a real friend. He trusts Mase and even grows to love him, but like always, it doesn’t last.
Killed in a tragic work accident, Mase’s death is just one more disappointment. And when the company refuses to accept responsibility for it, Nate’s heartache turns to hate and he vows to make it right the only way he knows how.
For Rebecca Fox, a beautiful and talented corporate attorney, Mason Lord’s death is simply an accident. Despite the very believable eyewitness testimony from the drop-dead gorgeous Nathan Butler, she successfully defends the company against a wrongful death lawsuit, upping her chances of becoming a full partner at the most prestigious law firm in San Francisco.
The partnership is all she wants, the cornerstone of her long-term plan. Then Nathan Butler unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep and changes everything, her life becoming a thrilling, titillating playground instead of a dull obstacle course to navigate oh-so carefully.
Yet nothing is as it seems. A collision of desires and worlds, a twisted two-step, but what Rebecca doesn’t know can’t hurt her.
Or can it?

I liked Nate because I understood his need to get revenge, and he was hot. The sexy cowboy construction worker! He attempts revenge against the lawyer, Rebecca, who helped the company win against his friend’s on-site death. Nate was passionate in his desire to exact revenge on her. Rebecca was a sheltered, successful lawyer. After meeting Nate, she starts to speak up for herself, dress sexy, and enjoy sex.It was fun watching her become the woman she could be after her divorce and pressure from her mother to date ‘suitable’ men.
Then an incident occurs and Nate makes a decision that has a positive outcome. I was thrilled. Then as the story continued, Rebecca was privy to some info that could make a very public case into a loss for a guilty party, but … This is where I was disappointed. I disagreed with her decision and the fact that she never did anything about the expected fall out. To me, she could have been a heroine, but she wasn’t.Then later Nate returns to revenge on Rebecca, and it is elaborate. I appreciated that Nate’s background, the loss of his friend, and more were still causing him to want to destroy what could be his happiness. As his plan unfolds, he has the chance to continue with his revenge or let go of the past for the chance at a future filled with love.
The theme of the book about revenge and the price of it as well as overcoming past hurts to allow in present love was solid. It just could have been a better story in my opinion with either a different decision by Rebecca or her wanting to ‘fix’ it with Nate getting justice for his friend.
