In the latest superhot tale from reader-favorite author Rachael Stewart, business owner Olivia Carmel is embracing her wild side, and PR expert Valentine Boretti has been hired to rein her in. But instead, Olivia is driving him wild…for her!
Seeing a client naked is no way to start a working relationship—especially when that client is stunningly sensual Olivia Carmel. When she invites me to watch her BDSM session in London’s most hedonistic sex club, she thinks I’m a stranger, not a PR expert sent to rein her in.
Watching Olivia awakens a hunger I can’t allow myself to feel. There’s no way I can work with her! But when she crashes her luxury car, I can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for her recklessness to turn fatal. She may kill me when she recognizes me…and when she learns a man sixteen years her junior has been hired to curtail her bad behavior.
I’m here to reawaken Olivia’s careful, rational nature. But instead she’s reawakening my desire…showing me just how well we work together in and out of the bedroom. As we fulfill each other’s naughtiest fantasies, and share our deepest longings, I realize I’m feeling more for my wayward client than lust. But can I convince Olivia to take a chance on love?
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Harlequin Dare always deliver with steamy stories and Rachael Stewart is deliciously skilled at creating the right mood. This range is aimed at the more broad-minded reader and provides erotic stories without compromising the content.
Reawakened brings us the story of Valentine, a gorgeous PR guru who is enlisted to help save the reputation of Olivia Carmel. Olivia is grieving the death of her husband by behaving in ways that he would never have accepted. His rigorous standards have kept Olivia restricted for years, but now she wants and needs a reckless life, filled with thrills and danger.
The opening chapters immediately show how wild Olivia is becoming and Valentine is both intrigued and unnerved by the depth of her rebellion.
Crafted to stimulate a carnal response, Reawakened explores the hedonistic world of S&M whilst taking the reader to a lifestyle that most of us can only imagine; wealth that provides limitless opportunities for thrills and decadence.
The chemistry between Olivia and Valentine is all consuming and it soon becomes obvious that we are waiting for when, rather than if, they will submit to their urges.
If you like your love stories to be a little racier, you can’t go wrong with this hot tale from Rachael and the team at Dare.
Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.
She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.
A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
