He can’t control his desire.
Luc Traverson’s entire future is planned out—but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa Devereaux . She’s a former exotic dancer turned strip club owner and restaurateur. Recently, Alyssa and Luc shared one night of wild abandon that left Luc terrified by his loss of self-control—and Alyssa desperate for more.
And that’s just the way she wants it.
Fulfilling a promise, Luc is the guest chef for Alyssa’s restaurant debut. The sight of her makes Luc wild, so how can he survive a week without letting loose and ravaging her—especially when she’s begging for it? Luc’s desire for her explodes when he realizes he isn’t the only man desperate to have her. But one of the others is deadly. And that’s not the end of Alyssa’s secrets…which are as dark and mysterious and enticing as her fantasies.
OMG!  I have been dying to post this review! Now it is finally close enough to release date that I can’t hold back any longer in sharing with you this Delicious book!

First of all, I have waited FOREVER it seems for this book.  Luc so far, is my favorite out of all of the series so far.  Ms. Black has got a knack for writing wonderful stories that leave you hot and bothered and on the edge of your seat with suspense.  Just when you think the story is coming to an end, she throws more at you!

What was nice about this book is we get to not only get mention of the previous books’ characters, but we actually get to see interaction with them.  We get to read the hot and heavy sex scenes that the author has mastered, the suspense that keeps this plot moving effortlessly, and characters with depth and reality to them.  At first, I wasn’t too sure about the character of Alyssa, but as the story progressed I really enjoyed the chemistry between her and Luc.  I was constantly trying to figure out the mystery of who was stalking Alyssa, and the author kept me guessing up until the end. 

The sex scenes alone were enough to keep me going through this book.  The heat radiated from the pages and left you panting along with the characters.  The author knows sexy and can write it with ease.  I will never look at a strawberry the same way again after reading this book. 

A book that is very erotic, scorching hot and oh so Delicious!


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!
