He’s a man who fixes difficult situations. She’s the one thing he can’t handle—and the one thing he can’t resist…
Sebastian Jameson negotiates for high-end clients who need problems taken care of quickly and discreetly. Accustomed to being in control, he’s still reeling from his ex-wife’s decision to write a tell-all about their private life, one that highlighted their bedroom activities. The fallout left Bast’s love life in chaos, making him a magnet for women who thrive on risky fantasies, and a pariah to all others.
Kyra Royer knows all about Bast’s reputation—and is intrigued enough to try to change him into a one-woman guy. But getting him into her bed will be a challenge. He’s known her brother for years, and her brother, with his rough past and sniper abilities, is not a man you cross. Kyra knows Bast thinks she’s off-limits, so she’ll have to get creative to make him hers.
As Kyra turns up the heat, Bast struggles to resist the sexy young woman’s considerable charms. But when Bast’s job turns from tricky to deadly, keeping Kyra nearby might be the only way to keep her alive—even if it means getting closer than he ever intended…
The Holton Woods series by HelenKay Dimon continues with Only as we move on to Sebastian Jameson Jarrett best friend from book one. He's this controlled sexy lawyer who seems like he has it all together except when Kyra Royer show up at the club his best friend owns. Kyra is 24 years old but a very hardened 24 because of the way she was brought up. She doesn't come from money the way Bast does and she doesn't had a high paying job either. She does know what she wants and she wants Bast. Bast puts up a good fight to keep her at arms length but when he finally gives in things get hot quick. This books isn't just a sexy romance there is also the edge of suspense and danger as well. Bast is handling a really difficult case which has the danger of someone getting hurt. Kyra also has her criminal father in the background trying to cause trouble which Bast knows nothing about. I think the relationship comes across as both Bast and Kyra as a little immature or at least for Bast a little scared maybe. He's had his previous marriage and personal life dragged through the media so he's allowed to be leery i guess. As the story grows though Bast figures out how to love again and Kyra matures in her first real relationship. There is also a secondary M/M romance that started in book one that's a little combustible. I want to say that you really need to start with book one or you might be a little lost on the relationships going on in this series. Overall so far i am enjoying the series.
