Meg's Review:I really enjoyed this novel. I was gifted it for an honest review. I saw the cover and synopsis and knew it was right up my alley and it did not disappoint.
Ryder is on the hunt for this author and is determined to get a meeting and sign her to his publishing house. Peyton is a Self-Published author that never thought her book would get read. She is also publishing under a different name. No one knows who really wrote this book, well no one but her mysterious mailer. She is getting letters that seem to show someone is watching her. Ryder meets Peyton at a gym he was scouting to try to find this "Author". After an interesting Kick-Boxing class Peyton and Ryder really hit it off. The story develops from there, and though I had an idea where it was going it was quite the hot read.
"I didn't want any of that happily ever after bullshit. Finding new talent used to be easy for me, and I really needed to get a handle on things"
This was a relatively quick read, and was quite enjoyable. Leighton's hot and steamy scenes definitely had me on my toes. I would have liked to have a little more depth in the story and maybe a curve ball or two, but all in all it was great. I really enjoyed reading it and will definitely read more from this author.
"You think you know me so well, huh? When I take you, I am going to make you scream so loud the neighbors will know my name" - Ryder
