He glanced at his vintage Cartier Santos Dumont watch. “I don’t have any appointments till noon tomorrow so we have plenty of time. And my appointments can be canceled if necessary.”

“How very accommodating of you,” Kate said softly.

Dominic smiled faintly. “We try.”

Suddenly the image of countless females being accommodated by the incredibly beautiful, sexually talented Knight Enterprises CEO filled Kate’s mind and brought the teasing game to a screeching halt. “But you’re accommodating only me from now on, right?” she said, challenge in the obstinate jut of her chin.

“Only you,” he readily agreed, when he would have found such limitations incomprehensible a few short months ago.

Leaning back against the flax-​colored sofa, her green gaze shimmering with delight, she smiled at the man she loved. “So,” she murmured, with delicate impertinence and a little dip of her head. “Have I really tamed the premier playboy of the Western world?”

A lazy flicker of a smile. “I didn’t think you liked it tame?”

His words hovered palpably in the sudden silence.

Spiked through her body, a flame hot and riveting.

Pooled in seething delirium deep down inside her.

“Meaning?” she whispered, finding it hard to breathe.

“Meaning, why don’t we find out what you do like?” he said gently, coming to his feet in a graceful flow of toned muscle, having patiently waited through the unwrapping of countless boxes for her to finally read his mind. He held out his strong hand with its dusting of dark hair, his long fingers faintly splayed.

A shiver of pleasure raced through her. Broad-​shouldered, lean hipped in jeans and a faded blue Peace T‑shirt, Dominic’s dark, brooding beauty was breathtaking: the long silky black hair, the bad-​boy scorching blue eyes, the high cheekbones and fine bone structure, the arrow-​straight nose, the mouth saved from outright sensuality by the contradictory don’t‑mess-​with‑me firmness. The whole package transcendent male perfection.

And when he leaned down and his hand closed around hers, she trembled at the glut of prodigal sensation, at the feverish need coiling in the pit of her stomach, at the blazing hot desire streaking up her spine. Agitated and restless, she said on a suffocated breath, “I’m sorry. But it’s been so long I don’t think I’m going to last.”

Drawing her to her feet, he slid his hands under her arms, lifted her over the pile of boxes, and set her down. “Then let’s go take care of you.”

Kate Hart and Dominic Knight’s volatile love affair continues in the last book in the All or Nothing trilogy from C.C. Gibbs. Being tied down to just one woman was the last thing Dominic wanted. But from the moment he laid eyes on Kate, he couldn’t deny his overwhelming desire for her or his need to possess her.
Praise for Book #1, ALL HE WANTS: “There are so many Fifty Shades-esque books on the market nowadays, but book one of the All or Nothing trilogy will be remembered. This sensational debut will spark interest among the most dedicated erotica fans. Gibbs doesn’t beat around the bush, gets straight to the point, and will leave readers gasping for breath…this story is much more imaginative and will take readers to heights they never even believed existed.” —RT Book Reviews
Praise for Book #2, ALL HE NEEDS: “This electrifying follow-up to the debut of the All or Nothing trilogy will satisfy readers across the map.

Our hero and heroine’s relationship seems stronger than ever since they’ve been apart, and their explosive meetings together will stay embedded in erotica fans’ memories for a very long time. All He Needs is suspenseful, emotionally driven and will keep Gibbs’ fans wondering how in the world she will be able to top this installment.” —RT Book Reviews

Being tied down to just one woman was the last thing Dominic wanted. But from the moment he laid eyes on Kate, he couldn’t deny his overwhelming desire for her or his need to possess her.

My Thoughts

First off i have to thank the folks at Netgalley for providing me with this ARC – in return for an honest review.  Well that overview clearly doesn’t say much – but i’ll give you the gist.  We know that Dominic was put into a bad situation where he had to ‘marry’ Bianca while she was preggo in exchange for his ‘freedom’ of sorts.  This meant that he was away from Kate and that wasn’t very good for their relationship.

Where we are now in the series is that they are finally back together and Kate’s pregnant with their first child and surprisingly Dominic is VERY excited about it.  That comes to a surprise to just about everyone because that’s not Dominic’s style, but nevertheless we see that it’s great for these 2.

Kate’s insatiable because of the baby, so we certainly see a lot of heat and passion continue on with these two.  As is the case in the other two installments of the series, we get to see a lot of chemistry both from the fact that there’s intense love as well as the way that they combat each other.

Just when everything seems like it’s going to be perfect for them, Kate experiences a life shattering event and things come crashing down.  Where the rest of the story takes us is on the journey of what it means for Kate, what that means for Dominic and what their future will hold.

There were also mini bits of the story that came up there were on my mind throughout I’m still not sure that they were resolved properly.  I kept waiting for Gora or Bianca to turn up and cause trouble or for the divorce not to happen, and we don’t really see as much into that as i’d expected.  i feel like there was a lot of opportunity for more adversity here and there were teases – but nothing finite.

To be completely honest, it’s taken me a really long time to get through this 3rd book.  It’s very different from what i felt reading the others – which were quick reads and kept me super engaged . I don’t know what it was about this story, but i feel like it dragged.  I think that i was hoping for the passionate love story that we had thorughout the other two and while it was VERY clear that there’s love here – i don’t know – it just didn’t hold my attention as well.

What’s nice about this story though is the ending.  We get an epilogue in the final chapters (and epilogue of sorts) that gives you a lead into what will be and then we get a true epilogue that introduces yet another angle of the story that i’m willing to bet will either be a #4 in the series or an adjunct series.  So, all in all, it was ‘eh’ and i always feel bad about saying that – but i have to be honest.  I’d love to hear anyone else’s thoughts when you check this out.  maybe i missed something.
