DND is book 4 in the Salon Games series, I didn’t read the earlier books so please bear with me if you have. If not, I highly recommend reading them first as I had a hard time with one aspect of the story and that is because I didn’t know the history.
Synopsis: To the outside world, Dane Connelly is the playboy heir of a media mogul, his life a series of one-night stands with no commitments. Only in the Salon does he satisfy his darker urges with willing partners. Life was perfect…until his best friend fell in love. Now Dane knows exactly what he’s been missing—and exactly who he wants.
Talia Driscoll enjoys creating perfection. She loves bright, glittery parties and fairy tale weddings. But she knows the illusion is short-lived. Nothing lasts forever and everyone lies to get what they want. After all, she lies about her true identity every day.
After an explosive night at the Salon, Dane is determined to sway the reluctant Talia to be his completely. But the secrets that keep them apart are at odds with the erotic passion that draws them together…
Review: This was my kind of book. Sexy and angsty, Oh yeah baby!! Dane is our male lead and I really enjoyed reading his POV (Dual POV story LOVE). He wasn’t just a rich alpha male who you love to hate, he actually puts his thoughts and feelings out there and hopes for the best, which is so refreshing. Now don’t get me wrong that man is still sex on legs he just knows what he wants and has no problem stating it. The only thing about Dane I didn’t get was his obsession with Annabelle, his best friend’s finance`. Apparently they have a “sharing is caring” situation that had I have read the earlier books I would’ve known. They do discuss it throughout the book, however, so don’t feel like you HAVE to read the other ones. Anyway, he is kinda stuck and unable to move on because of his “feelings” for Annabelle even though he doesn’t want a “relationship” just someone he is just as sexually compatible with as well as a good friend. Is it just me or do most men not realize this pretty much makes up a relationship? Boys can be so dumb.
Talia is a pretty cool girl, she is so career focused that Dane is right up her alley. He is a sexy, not looking for a relationship and can f*ck like a God but he is also Annabelle’s friend and she is planning Annabelle’s wedding so their might be a conflict of interest. Ya think!!??! Tally is sure she can separate business from pleasure with no problem, couple that with the fact that she doesn’t know that Annabelle has sampled the “goods” as well and we have our angst folks. Tally also has a secret from her past that keeps you turning the pages to figure out.
So 4.5 stars for this sexy summer read folks. I loved the Salon scene and I am sure you will too!! Pick this book up today if you can.
