4.5 “Naughty Girl” Stars
I thoroughly enjoyed every second of Ms. Chase’s Awakening Series and so of course, I was ecstatic to get an ARC of her latest - the Excess Series #1. I read this in one sitting and couldn't believe it was over once done.
Nina Scott, self-made millionaire, is lost and lonely at 31 years old.
“I’d made my fortune and built my castle, and then exiled myself in it.”
She’s divorced and now trying to extricate herself from the disaster of her current relationship, if you can call it one, with Devin McIntyre. Devin is a handsome, powerful, wealthy liar and predator.
“…poison packaged in a gorgeous smile and a mouth-watering cock…”
“Your pussy is not my paycheck,” he said, taking a step toward me. “It’s my pastime.”
At first, Nina was easy prey but over time, she succumbed to his sex, his control, his power and now Devin is an addiction that will eat her alive. Along the way, Nina has lost herself and is now an empty shell of a person. So, she decides to rid herself of Devin once and for all.
“Devin McIntyre was another price I paid for my wealth, another reminder that with each dollar earned a part of my humanity was stripped away from me.”
One night, Nina ventures off the beaten path and meets a gorgeous musician/bar owner, Aiden.
She catches his attention and then from there, they start to see each other.
I must confess, I’ve fallen…
He’s sex-on-a-stick and while all Alpha, he’s also attentive and affectionate. From musician, to surfer, to cook, this man is laid back, confident, kind, sexy-as-all-get-out and also no pushover.
I seriously didn't know what Nina sees in Devin because Aiden's IT!!
While Nina is drawn to Aiden, she also wants to keep some sort of distance in fear of him discovering her dirty past and secrets. Aiden may very likely be her future but Devin is still very much in the picture and still a weakness Nina can’t shake.
I loved Nina’s sass and that Aiden would have none of it. Loved how he called her “naughty girl”…*squirming in my panties*
Okay, I just about loved everything about Aiden…even though it’s very obvious that we know very little about him. While I guessed one of Aiden’s secrets, I know he’s got more and it’s only going to make for a better ride!
I would highly recommend this series even for those who don't like cheaters (I hate cheaters). I wouldn't call this a love triangle but will say it's not for those looking for hearts and everything coming up roses. Something tells me it's only going to get down and dirtier before we see the light. Bring it!
