|~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~
If you have never read any of this series before, then I do recommend them all to you - and your experience of this book would be richer for knowing the rationale, and understanding behind what many of the gang say to both Javier and Jules in this story. But it is also an excellent read in its own right. And, having enjoyed it, you will find that you have a wonderful collection of books to add to your reading list.
Juliana used the Navy to escape her mother, but ended up losing the ability to do the thing she loved the most, cooking. She has found herself in a hostess role in Top, which keeps her near food, but is also frustrating her. The fact that she is attracted to chef Javier does not help. His womanising ways are not an attraction, but nearly everything else about him is. I admired how positive she was about her position, even if it was only on the surface - and it contrasted well with Javier's brother.
Completely blindsided by how Jules has got under his skin, Javier has to work out how he is going to get the girl. It is fun watching the other guys tease him, and remember how many of them had to fight to get their girl too. His Dom talents are not used to exploit the situation, instead he is very mindful of Jules' needs and kinky play is very carefully introduced. It would be fun to see them grow in future installments.
Loved catching up with old friends, seeing two more people who needed each other connect and become integrated as a couple in the wider family. A definite feel good novel in the series, without too much angst!
