Two years ago, he took my innocence and ran,
Luckily for me, he’s a slow runner.
He doesn’t know that he gave me the most beautiful gift in the world – my son.
I’m going to give him a gift too – revenge!
And if he’s thinking he can get me and my son…
Well, he can go take a walk!
She’s my best friend’s little sister.
I should never have touched her.
But I did.
She was hot. She was fun. She was begging me for it.
So I gave it to her… all night long.
I told her I loved her. I promised her the moon and stars.
I meant every word.
Then I vanished. I couldn’t tell her why. I still can’t.
We haven’t talked since.
But I saw her yesterday. She’s still hot enough to stop traffic,
Even with a kid.
She’s got secrets, but so do I.
I know she still wants me, but she’s not begging this time.
This time she wants me to beg.
But I don’t beg. I take.
And I’m taking Jessi. Secrets and all.
My Review –
This book took me a while to get my head into. I loved the story line, curvy Jessi making a successful career in the modelling industry ( very positive image to put out), and Chris a choreographer, very different to the normal suited business man I read in Romance genre’s.
I loved the empowerment by using a curvy woman for the main character, this is rare I find in the Romance/Erotic genre.
The cover however niggled me. The story brings you a confident curvy mum taking over the modelling industry, yet the cover shows a “normal” sized woman. I wish the author secured a curvy woman to empower other women, and show some diverse covers out there.
Because I love you was definitely steamy, imaginative and juicy. Amy Brent has captured a dramatic, romantic, very saucy novel in one. Once I was about 30% of the way through I was hooked. The revenge plot and karma was well done throughout. The story line never felt rushed and Amy definitely kept me wanting to find out more about Chris.
Jessi was an open book to the reader, but Chris was mysterious not only to me but to the main character Jessi……. Why would he leave her when they were so in love.
The sex scenes are very descriptive and always different. These two characters are on fire consistently throughout.
I became Like Jessi’s friend Megan in the end, I was getting so frustrated that this man he obviously loved didn’t yet know the truth. Proof the author did well.
This was better than a light hearted romance, the complicated relationship made the couples dynamic more realistic. I like some drama in my books and this his the nail on the head.
A must read for all you Romance lovers out there.
I gave this book 4/5 on Goodreads, mainly because I found myself struggling to get into it from the first page. But once I was into the main part of the story I was hooked. I will be looking into more of Amy Brent’s books in the future.
