She’s a take-charge woman. But he’s a master of control.
Skye Manning knows what she wants. Her job as assistant and photographer for a major social media influencer isn’t perfect, but it’s a rung on the ladder to bigger and better things. She’s confident she’ll one day take feature photos for National Geographic.
Self-made billionaire Braden Black didn’t get where he is by taking no for an answer. When a chance encounter with the refreshingly innocent and beautiful Skye piques his interest in more ways than one, he’s determined to make her submit.
Dating a billionaire soon has Skye in the middle of a Cinderella story…until the clock strikes midnight and Braden reveals his dark side. Heat sizzles between them, and Skye finds herself falling hard.
But Braden Black is no Prince Charming, and his dark desires are far from his only secret.
I don’t quite know how I found this story but i’m glad that I did. I love a good introduction to a series where our leading lady has absolutely no idea what she’s getting herself into because of her status, her background, her current life situation and her innocence when it comes to a romantic interest. In this story – Skye suffers from all of that, and it’s lovely to watch Braden change her world.
We meet Skye when she’s the social content developer for a society girl. This gives her access to all sorts of sponsorships, an opportunity to expand her love of photography which is what she studied in school and hoped to make into some type of profession.
It’s when she’s filtering comments for her boss, and then the root of negative comments turns out to be society playboy Braden that her life changes. He swoops in, propositions her for things that she’s never expected or knew existed and pushes her to lengths that were unfathomable.
He has a dark side, a delicious one and that means that she’s going to either have to become open minded, learn to put the whispers to the back of her mind or walk away. She has faith that she knows everything, however it seems like there may be some darkness that’s not resolved and potentially dangerous lurking under the water. He wants to give her a lot that she’s never experienced, and she wants to lie her life for herself. So, let’s just hope that the conflict that arose at the end of book one some how resolves in book 2. so, onto the next! Enjoy!
