You should sleep with a stranger—those words whispered in her ear by her best friend became a challenge Kasie took to heart. Suddenly, the man who gave her the most shocking pleasure in that upscale Vegas hotel—a man whose name she never bothered to find out—is her company’s biggest client.
As this unknown man becomes Mr. Dade at the office, and Mr. Dade becomes Robert in the bedroom, Kasie discovers her true nature and begins to question the carefully controlled, modest image she has crafted to please her family and friends. But when her fiancé, Dave, finds out, his rage and desire to both keep her and punish her could cost her everything—including Robert, the only man who has wanted Kasie for who she really is and the only man who makes her feel truly alive.
The plot thickens of course – we left off book 1 at a point in time where Kasie thought that her secrets were hidden, but that turned out to not be the case. Dave found out about her affair and gave her an ultimatum. choose him or have her life and reputation ruined. so of course Kasie dind’t have a choice. she broke things off with Robert and chose to try to make things right (for now) with Dave
of course that comes with a price – he’s holding everything over her head, demeaning her and taking his vengeance out on her. trying to embarrass her in front of her co-workers and when it backfires, he doesn’t know what to do.
knowing what we know of Robert too, he’s not going to take this all sitting down and he takes it upon himself to make sure that Kasie is taken care of and that’s a good thing for her. sort of.
Kasie also quickly realizes that Dave didn’t find out the information on his own and tries to find out who ratted him out. Of course turning to Asha since she’s not to be trusted.
While her professional life is going on an interesting path, her romance with Robert heats up. no matter what she says, she can’t stay away from him and doesn’t even want to. even when she’s threatened with her reputation and her well being, she still decides that maybe it’s more important to find who she is on the inside rather than trying to make up for what she’s done.
Where this story leaves us off, is on another cliff hanger of sorts. not as dramatic as the one from book 1 but still things are changing and you can feel it in the air. i can’t wait to see if the changes that Kasie’s going through are for the better and if we can even trust Robert since i’m not quite sure that we can. the things that we’re starting to see are quite interesting.
at least there’s enough steam and passion to keep us interested. i love that while we see a dominant side of Robert, he’s still a great instructor and he’s showing Kasie sides of herself that she wasn’t even sure existed since her life with Dave was so ‘vanilla’ and expected.
