Celeste Lambert, former queen of the daytime drama, and current trophy girlfriend to the powerful Tony DelMario, has problems. Her boyfriend thinks she sold his business secrets to his competitors. Even worse, she’s pretty convinced he’s trying to kill her because of it. So Celeste does what any good soap opera queen would do. She develops a convenient case of amnesia, in order to buy time to gather the money she needs to escape him for good.
Tony DelMario has problems of his own. A hit- and-run driver put a two year hole in his fiance’s memory that Tony is desperate to fill. All the attention in the world isn’t helping her remember how much she used to love him, and it isn’t putting a damper on her new found defiance either. One thing he’s quick to remind Celeste of is that she agreed to a domestic discipline relationship, meaning he has no problem putting her over his knee for a spanking when she misbehaves, no matter how little she remembers him. It doesn’t take long for Celeste’s fake amnesia to uncover a lot more problems in their relationship, specifically the fact that her fiance doesn’t even seem to like her that much. Meanwhile, Tony misses the woman he lost, but is more than intrigued by the new one that replaced her. Celeste, for her part, still loves the man who might have tried to kill her. But there are some things that love can’t fix, and Celeste needs to decide whether to trust Tony again, or forget him for real.
I have to say this, out of all the books that I have read this month, this one is by far my favorite. Almost to the point of being on my top 10 of 2015.
This book caught me completely off guard with how drawn into the story I was, right from the start! This is seriously a case of I couldn’t do anything until I found out what was going to happen next. And then, once I thought I had it all figured out, another twist happened! But it was so balanced, I didn’t feel like I was lost, or confused. I just knew I couldn’t get enough!
Usually, I don’t enjoy books where it’s constant twists and turns, but with this author,they did it in such a great way that I just couldn’t get enough of it! Everything about this story I loved, and this author is now on my “to read list” and I will be searching through their backlist to find more!
I completely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a romance, with a bunch of suspense, and an overall great story.
