Annabel Frost manages Cluny's Restaurant in London and has a reputation of being a tough and exacting boss. Actually the employees just think of her as a cold, unfeeling bitch.
Aidan Flynn is the new head barman and is drawn to Annabel the moment he lays eyes on her. She tears strips off him at a team meeting, because he dared to talk back to her, and is instantly enthralled by her.
Annabel appears impervious to Aidan's charms, but his compelling gaze and Irish lilt may just captivate her yet.
This book was a bit of a surprise to me. I knew from the blurb it was a story for fans of erotic romance, however, it took a long, long time to get to the sexy bits. However, along the way there is a lot of lustful, sexual tension that kept me reading.
Plus the writing style of Kat Black was surprisingly unusual. The well written story had very interesting descriptions and I really enjoyed being surprised by being able to predict the next scene.
Aidan has a dominating persona (both in and out of the bedroom) and he challenges Annabel at every turn to submit to him. I really didn't like him in the beginning with the way he was so charming and sure he could get Annabel into bed. But as you learn more about him and Annabel I changed my mind and began to like him.
Annabel is tough because she has needed to be. Her life hasn't been easy as she's only had herself to depend since her father died. Letting Aidan into her life was certainly a struggle for her and even in the end I'm not sure she really did.
I think you'll enjoy the read because it's not your standard boy meets girl, boy has erotic sex with girl kind of story. However, I did find that some chapters had a lot of very detailed padding that really didn't need to be there and others that were a bit light on, where the motivation for an action was quick and not really worked into the story really well. In saying that, tho' I really enjoyed the way this book was written and the sexual tension kept me going.
I have become a fan of Kat Black's style and hopefully you will too.
