Executive assistant Tabitha Quinn didn't come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha's never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.
OMG! So hot! I absolutely loved it!
Tabitha is going to Hawaii for a vacation and is supposed to meet her friend Barbara there at the airport. When Tabitha arrived, she learned Barbara couldn’t come so she decided to make the best of her trip solo. One near drowning experience later puts her in the arms of a gorgeous, rich stranger. They only have a few days together but their sexual relationship blossomed quickly. Marcus is always the gentleman but with a kinky dark side and Tabitha fell under his spell.
This novella showed how Tabitha and Marcus met but didn’t give much information on their backgrounds. All the reader really knows is that Marcus is a wealthy businessman (don’t know where he works and lives or what his job is) and Tabitha works in some type of office environment in New York City. There are lots of unanswered questions and the book ends on a cliffhanger. I would’ve preferred this novella be tacked on to the beginning of the first novel in the series since that book picks up exactly where this novella leaves off, if the excerpt in the back of the novella is any indication.
The story is told from Tabitha’s POV in third person. There aren’t any chapters but there are proper scene breaks so I was never confused throughout the book. It’s well-written but I did notice a few typos. I definitely want to read the rest of this series.
