Will the link to his past sway him from a life he now leads, to a life he once led?
I Loved this book. I didn’t read the first two books in the trilogy but I don’t feel you will need to either, however it may help you to understand the characters further.
The first chapter was very good and captivating, really draws the reader into the book. S.Valentine throws the reader 2 months ahead into the life of Darion Milano and Gabriella Woods where Darion has given up the Black door, and is attending the re opening under new management with Gabriella.
However the reunion with all the staff does not go as planned, an old friend of Darion’s, Gina, breaks down in tears and asks Darion if he has told Gabi their secret ( Their confession). The chapter ends with Darion turning to Gabi and he said “I’m sorry”……… What is he sorry for?
And then the second chapter takes you back 2 months before the BIG secret. I just loved that the plot was at the beginning of the book, because it made me as a reader want to read on to find out the big secret. This book was filled with so much sexual tension, romance and erotica.
He is the typical sexy man, has his own wealth, and enjoyed the sexual fantasies he could live while owning and working in The Black Door, however he decides to leave that behind to be with Gabi. However there is nothing easy about their relationship. He has a BIG secret ( His Confession) that he has not told Gabi, will it break them up.
I enjoyed getting to understand Darion more, however his character uses sex a lot to disguise his true feelings, whilst battling with commitment issues. I enjoyed reading about Darion, and how he started to grow up and become a man. He really does have a romantic heart hidden under his sexually dark personality.
Poor Gabi, I could relate to her throughout the book. She is a lover of books, and works for a publishing company. All she dreams about is the “perfect” romantic relationship, based upon her well loved book genres. Of course nothing is perfect in a real life relationship compared to fiction. After all a fictional character does not always come with “Baggage” like Darion. But then how can she deny a man who makes her weak at the knees by just smiling at her.
Gabi presents herself in designer shoes, perfect hair and makeup, whilst struggling to keep a man she loves dearly in a so called “normal” relationship. However nothing is boring in the bedroom when it comes to these two characters. After all, all Gabi wants to do is to get married and have children with this gorgeous man she has fallen so deeply in love with.
I give this book a solid 5 stars, I was hooked from the very beginning. The author has thought this book out so well. I applaud S.Valentine, makes me wish I knew about the series sooner. You will all love it I promise.
I want to thank Lifestyle and Literature for sharing this book to me.
