Brandy Rhodes is about to enter law school, and everything is going according to plan...until she meets him - the one man in the universe who's off limits - her best friend's brother, Aaron.
Brandy knows enough to stay away from him, but as the pull becomes impossible to ignore, secrets and lies become part of Brandy's way of life. And she kind of likes it.
Aaron Sullivan has never been one to believe in love. His motto is quantity over quality, and that has suited him quite well. After all, love is an illusion and romance is another way to manipulate females into bed...until he met her - the one woman in the universe who calls his bluff and shows what love can be.
But as their love grows, Aaron's past begins to haunt his future, and right when she needs him the most, he makes a decision that will shatter her world.
And she just may not survive.

I got bored with the story maybe because I did not have the first book.i didn't feel connected to the characters. yes, they're nice but they do not have a good appeal to me.

Sexy, honorable & smart wind this billionaire in!
Brandy was a gal with two wonderful friends, Gabby and Lillian and a very supportive family. Gabby happened to be her boss in a large corporation, a corporation owned by Gabby’s family. The three of them had been in university together, but now were struggling in the real world. Brandy wanted to be a lawyer, but for the moment she had to work. She was quick on her feet, intelligent, with really great looks. The camaraderie between the girls was very warming – the perfect kind of friends to have.
Enter Aaron– Gabby’s brother who has been gone from the family since he was 18. Gabby had heard rumors about his womanizing, etc. and was afraid to let him back into her life. God knows what he’d been up to. Brandy, being the good friend she was, made a point in steering Aaron away from Gabby. Aaron kept seeking her out. Things get a little tricky when Brandy would prefer to sneak off with Aaron, however much she wanted her mind and body take the high way. Energy between them absolutely sizzled. She knew the type he was though. He was a player and no good for her. Brandy had a pretty good idea he was using her to get to Gabby. Was it working? Hmmm…
I picked up this book because of the narrator, Valerie Gilbert. She has written some of her own books, does narrations as well. Since her books were more like memoirs and sharing her thoughts, I got to know her well. I don’t know if Ms. Boulton created this story for Ms. Gilbert, or Ms. Gilbert hit upon the perfect story for the character resonates very strongly how I view Ms. Gilbert. And it is in first person! Ms. Gilbert is perfectly sarcastic, playing the part of Brandy who is full of snarky humor even about her own feelings, leaving me smirking throughout the listen. She narrates Brandy marvelously, particularly when Brandy talks to herself. I couldn’t help but respect her strength, her wisdom and her view of life.
Once Ms. Bolton’s story started heating up with emotions pulling at the hero and heroine, I was totally connected. Experiences Brandy and Aaron faced were heart-achingly real. There was realization of what could have been, learning life can change on a dime and trust is not always easy to grant. Then there is the lesson fear should not govern one’s life. Ms. Bolton left me most satisfied with her happy ever after. I shall look forward to the next in the series, Beyond Reason.
