About the bookArlene's Thoughts
Losing control is just the beginning…
“What would you do if the sexiest man in the world was bent on bringing you unbearable pleasure again and again? Joy Hightower wasn’t sure she could survive the experience…or live without it."
It’s not often you’re hired to paint a body tattoo—and what a body—on a total stranger at a Hollywood film set. A reserved and careful art teacher, Joy would never forget it. In a rare fit of raw desire she gave herself completely, knowing she’d never see him again, or ever repeat such a shameless, naked impulse.
Little did she know, the man with whom she shared that lightning bolt of lust was star Everett Hughes. For Everett, women and sex came as easily as fame. But how could he hope to convince the guarded Joy that beneath the hard body and sexy façade of celebrity was a real man who wanted only one, real woman?
In the heat of an intoxicating affair, Everett endeavors to break down her barriers, gain her trust, and expose himself as the real deal. But can Joy do the same, and reveal to him the vulnerable woman who longs to be loved, wanted, and desired forever?
I think the thing that caught my attention about this book is that it seems like Joy meets Everett when she's called to paint a body tattoo on him for a movie role. That seems pretty intimate and well, who knows where it can all lead. I take that back... I'm sure we can all assume where it leads. >.< If the book is as promising as the early ratings I'm seeing, well I can't wait to jump right in. :)
This book was not on my radar until Arlene brought it up. I'm always intrigued by stories that involve musicans, actors, or celebrity types. How do they pick one special person when they have so many people willing to throw themselves at their feet? I'm curious what it is about Joy that has Everett pursuing her. I really want to pick this up now, too! Leave to Arlene to tempt me with another book!
