When Jonathan was gone I couldn’t stop thinking about him, and the first thing he did when he got back was demand more of me. I’m willing to give him my body and my time, but I find myself giving up pieces of my heart.
My career is on track, and even though I can’t write a thing, I can sing. So I’ll go to the art opening with him, because his ex wife will be there. I feel this need to protect him from hurt, though in bed, his domination brings me to my knees.
This man is going to break me into a million little pieces.
It has actually been a little while since i read the first book in this series, but it was pretty quick to pick up where we had left off. Monica, the budding musician was back to her life trying to get her ‘record deal’ with her best friend Gabby, and at the same time enjoying her time with Jonathan. He is of course a billionaire, businessman, and quite authoritative in and out of the bedroom.
In this 2nd installment, we rejoin the couple when Jonathan is returning to town from a trip to Korea to secure another property for his hotel chain, and Monica continues to perform at Frontage, a restaurant/lounge type environment in the hopes of getting her record deal. Monica knows that Jonathan is still quite closed off to relationships of any sort becuase of his past with his first wife and his ex, but she’s willing to try to play it cool with him.
This next story takes us on the journey of Monica finding her way along with him w/o losing too much of herself, while also having to deal with the annoyances that her past with Kevin, her ex bring up. Kevin of course chooses an inopportune time to come back into her life, and of course decides to make a spectacle of things – in the form of an art installment that is in a show that both Monica and Jonathan attend together.
While things seem to be going well for the couple, Jonathan notices that monica continues to ask questions about Jonathan’s past relationships, while she says that she’s fine with things being casual. this stirs up an interesting discussion between the 2. We also run into Jonathan’s ex again, and she makes comments throughout that make us wonder to what extent Jonathan is over her (since we know he’s not) and what kind of hold she has on him. Monica is really thrown off base on a few things because of her, and this is the edge that we’re left on at the very end of this 2nd book. I guess it means that i’ll have to roll right into #3 tonight to see what happens.
