Who’s on top?

Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams—whether it’s for an hour or a lifetime. But due to a painful past, the British expat has never put her own name on the list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless and commitment-free hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart…

Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI agent. Specializing in financial crimes, he pieces together stories of greed and ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules—until he meets Tilda. He’s drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he’s the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesn’t come with a guarantee…

This book is so different from anything I’ve ever read. We begin the story with Daniel and Tilda on the cusp of divorce following a whirlwind romance and quick wedding. Daniel wants to save what they have, and Tilda is willing to give it all up. We get the story of how they met (it was so sweet) and fell in love in flashbacks. It’s different and kind of disjointed.

Daniel is one of the sexiest heroes ever, and I loved him so much. But Tilda, the heroine? Ugh. She was bitchy and didn’t deserve him. It’s so hot, though, that I have to overlook how much I didn’t like her.

“It’s not sex, Tilda. I want to white out your thoughts, turn your muscles to jelly and your bones to light. I want to taste your come, my come, our sweat. It’s annihilation. That’s what I want to do to you.”

I didn’t read the other books in this series, and I don’t think I will. But I loved Daniel and think erotic romance lovers might want to give this one a try.
