Billionaire Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he tries never to do anything that he’s sorry about…except for what he had done in the past to Dr. Madeline Reynolds. Many years and regrets later, Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying Maddie’s best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make things right, so he offers Maddie a bold proposition, an offer he knows she’ll have a very hard time declining even though she hates him.
Dr. Madeline Reynolds adores her best friend Kara and her fiancé Simon, but being forced into the company of Sam Hudson, because they are both in Simon and Kara’s wedding, is pure torture. She’s hated Sam for years, but when he offers her a bargain, something near and dear to her heart, she’s torn between her dislike for the man and the offer of something she’s always desperately wanted. Once, Sam Hudson nearly destroyed her, but Maddie discovers that sometimes things aren’t always what they appear to be. Is Sam really a devious heart-breaker, or is there something more to him beneath the surface?
Can two people with so many years of hurt between them learn to trust each other again?
"She's educated, she's smart and she's beautiful. Stop treating her like you have dominant caveman genes and maybe you'll succeed. You can't just club the woman over the head and drag her away to your cave. She deserves your respect," Helen admonished him.
Simon snagged his arm, uttering in a low voice, "I say stick with the plan. Use the club if you need to."
I FREAKING LOVE THIS SERIES! Each story has its own unique plot and it never gets boring. Each character has their own quirky personality that just have you falling for them. Plus we get a healthy dose of alpha males and their cavemen syndrome.
He rolled, trapping her beneath him, his large, muscular body covering hers as he told her wickedly, "I could have you making those need little noises in seconds," he boasted arrogantly.
She bit her lip to keep from laughing, amused by how quickly he could switch from tender lover to alpha cave-dweller. "You could try, I suppose," she told him in a teasing voice.
"I don't try. I do," he growled. "I'll have you begging for it."
I enjoyed Sam and Maddie's story. There is no real angst or unnecessary drama, and we get a very nice deal of steam! It's a little similar to Simon and Kara's story but still a good read. It was definitely heartwarming to see Sam and Maddie find each other again and get their HEA. Their interactions were super adorable which got me cracking up as well as sizzling hot. I love how feisty Maddie is as well.
Maddie bit her lip nervously. Really, what Sam meant was that he wanted revenge, a reciprocation that would probably involve breath-stealing kisses and erotic torture. She shot a quick glance at the door.
"Don't even think about it. I can be up and catching you within seconds, especially in those shoes," he commented reasonably, but with an underlying dangerous tone. "Either come to me or I'll come get you."
I was definitely looking towards Max's story more though! I would type more but I dragged my review for so long that I pretty much forgot a lot of the stuffs that I wanted to put down in the first place.
