Rejection and I have an understanding: I don't put myself out there and it doesn't screw with my life any more.I keep my feelings hidden, and my heart locked away.It was working well until he came along and threatened my impenetrable armor, one honeyed word at a time.
With his clean cut looks, and southern manners, I'm convinced he's not my type. Until I learn Trevor isn't the same gentleman in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom.
But once he learns my secrets, and my carefully constructed facade starts to crumble, it's my turn to do the rejecting.
I only hope he doesn't listen.
*** Without Regret is a standalone romance for mature audiences due to steamy bedroom scenes that are in no way contained to just the bedroom.***
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I was so looking forward to Emma’s story! And although Trevor was not the hot biker dude I was expecting she’d end up with, Without Regret was without a doubt a fantastic story.
We met both Emma (Simon’s PA) and Trevor (the new co-worker) in Without Apology. What’s new to us is the way the meet, and how they try to fight their chemistry and connection and subsequently lose… resulting in some really hot shenanigans.
Emma had a ton of abandonment and commitment issues, but the way Trevor set to overcoming them and guiding her through them was incredible. I really loved Emma. Given her past, her issues were more than understandable but that didn’t detract from her efficient, no-nonsense attitude, along with the way she handled people. My favorite part, though, was watching her tough as nails persona start to melt to let us see her true self with a heart of gold, and her caring nature despite her best efforts to keep it hidden.
“Despite telling him and myself I wouldn’t get attached, I was already missing his stupid face.”
Trevor was fabulous. While on the outside he was the perfect clean-cut businessman type, inside (and underneath his clothes) he was one bossy, alpha sexy hunk that was wild enough to drive Emma (and me) crazy. He was both gentle and rough, dominant but patient and was absolutely perfect for Emma and I completely adored him.
As I said, their connection and chemistry was unbelievable hot, their encounters had me fanning myself and I had the best of times watching them get together. That is not to say at some point or another I wanted to slap them into the right direction, but all’s well that ends well… right?
“I was falling. Hard. It had to be love. What other emotion left you happy, while at the same time wanting to puke.”
Without Regret had everything I wished for and then some. Great banter and chemistry, a fantastic cast of characters, scorching hot sextivities and the most adorably slobbering dog. Well written, engaging and with a great pace I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. Ms. Bondurant really knows what she’s doing!
