There's a new Alpha in town . . . and he's a Brit!
Darcy Nicole Sheridan, is 22 years-old, beautiful, single, spirited, sexy and - spoiled. She knows that about herself. Raised by wealthy (and doting) parents as an only child, Darcy pretty much coasts through life until her heart was inexplicably broken by her boyfriend, Darin.
To ease the pain, Darcy flies to Belize over the holidays fully intending to wallow in self-pity and distance herself from her ex. Her pity party is short-lived however, after observing a very handsome, very intriguing man on the beach. Darcy becomes the focus of the smokin' hot, wealthy and somewhat mysterious 'E.J.'
Soon she finds herself entangled with an alpha like no other… Her world is rocked by a series of events that will forever change the course of her life, showing her what love is all about; and forcing her to come to terms with hidden sexual pleasures only one man could fulfill…
This book is intended for mature audiences!
This was a man who could shatter me at will. - DarcyThis book Blew. Me. Away! It was so engaging and enthralling and had me saying just one more chapter, just one more chapter until I had to force myself to put it down at 3:45am to get some sleep! The first 20% was a bit slow but it quickly picked up and didn't slow down until the last page. This book could have easily been drawn out into its own three book series (Andrea, I hope to at least get a novella featuring the happy couple). I want more. I want to know more. The healing that Easton worked through was massive. The forgiveness and trust Darcy has for him is never ending. Darin was not good enough for her. And Bianca wasn't good enough for Easton, just as his mother didn't deserve and ounce of forgiveness for her transgressions.
Although the story had a bit of BDSM and a crazy alpha male, the kinky sex wasn't overwhelming as it was in FSoG (which was very involved and descriptive). BDSM tends to make me a bit uncomfortable with the punishment and spanking part of it because I come from an abusive background and I am very sensitive to such things. I don't like a story mainly about the BDSM. It has to have some meaty love and remorse from the dominate (working through things/past/demons) and it helps if the submissive is a strong person and enjoys what is happening - but there has to be love and this book has all of those elements. The punishment has a reason in the story - a very important part of who Easton is and the terrible things that happened to him at the hand of the woman who was supposed to protect him.
...instructing me to lay on my belly while he gently administered aloe and peppermint extract oil to my reddened derrière. There was something about the tenderness with which he was doing this for the first time ever that was strange. He rubbed more of it on my back, lowering his head to deliver soft, butterfly kisses to my backside, and neck. I shivered from the intensity of the moment.
Intensity. That's what it was. What had happened was so intense. That's what I kept telling myself as I reran the events that had just happened. Correction: the most intensely pleasurable events so far in my life. - DarcyEaston is a broken man and has never truly felt love; given or received. Darcy has had nothing but love in her life, maybe a little bit too much. Their paths cross for the first time in Belize where Darcy escaped to after catching Darin cheating on her with one of his co-workers. Easton, who introduces himself as E.J. is with his personal assistant and fuck buddy Lacee (who gets on my last nerve). Little did Darcy know that her life would never be the same.
"I can't seem to stay away from you... You have to know my regard for you is nowhere in the same vicinity as what was between Lacee and me. With her, I could take it or leave it, not so with you."
“You’re so beautiful... I love your hair, I love your smile. I love your strength. And how you’re never able to stop yourself from voicing your opinions, because I love your words. I love the way you scrunch up your nose like this, when you’re trying to hold something back. And Jesus, love... I love your laugh. If I could, I’d make sure you’d always be laughing. And making sure that your smile was never far behind.” - EastonI didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. I liked the first book in the series and I liked the second book better than the first. But the third, I loved. Every fuckin' part of it. It has been officially added to my favorites list.
He was quietly ruining me, wrecking me, shattering me on a low pulse for any other man. He owned me, and I was happily being captured. - Darcy5 Stars!
This book was about Darcy and Easton's journey to find love. If you haven't read the other gman books I highly suggest reading them before reading this, not only because it will help you better know some of the characters in this book but they are all really hot, sexy and crazy reads!
Darcy--- She is a really great female character that is down on her luck with love...she is your typical spoiled child that got everything handed to her with no questions asked from her parents. She caught her BF (a## hat Darrin) cheating on her and she thought her world had fallen apart so she escaped to a tropical island not looking for love or anything remotely close to a relationship. Man oh Man did she luck out meeting the totally hot and sexy EJ. She had quite the adventure while away on this mini vaca where not only did she find a hot piece of man, but she found her newest best friend not EJ by the way! She really never thought she would see EJ again but oh sooo hoped one day she would because the chemistry between them was seriously out of this world and he did promise to see her again but who was she kidding he lived across the globe from her and she didn't even give him her real name... She never thought her best friends wedding could change everything for her.....Or the grooms half-brother!
EJ aka Easton--- WOW is all i have to say! This man is the definition of sex on a stick! He is a helluva Alpha-Male. He isn't looking for love he doesn't do love, he isn't made to handle that type of intimacy a woman should get from a mate. He is a successful business man with tons of his own secrets and will never share those details with another woman. He has been hurt by his mother and his ex fiance there was no way he was ever going to let his control slip again with a woman. He does know how to show a great time but he has to be in control....but why does he feel like his control is slipping when he meets this wonderful woman Nicole.... hahahahaha--! She drives him crazy like no other woman ever has and she resembles his ex fiance which makes his controlling side want to do bad things to her and punish her for his ex's mistakes. He can't seem to stay away from her and once he kisses her its all over for him, but he has business to take care of and has to leave the island-- he leaves her in a situation of sorts with promises he will see her again.
Well what a surprise when he comes out of the ladies bathroom.. yes I said ladies bathroom after well ya know doing what Easton does best and runs right into Nicole--- or as he hears everyone call her Darcy.
What will come of this journey with these 2--- its not an easy ride--- its quite bumpy in more ways than one.
This book will take you to levels that somewhat shadow fifty shades a little but who doesn't love a little BDSM in a book! I certainly don't mind it at all!!! There journey isn't your typical fall in love had kids and live happily ever after. THANK GOD! The sex scenes in this book are off the charts HOT! I love Andrea Smith's writing styles and all her male characters in her books are panty dropping hot! I think Easton tops the charts for me though.. and I didn't think that was possible after reading her baby series and meeting Trey Sinclair...oh don't get me wrong I love that man too, but Trey im soooo sorry Easton is giving you a run for your money!!! If you like a hot sex story, sarcastic female lead who is a bit of a potty mouth, and hot male who has some special things to share with his lady (yah read the story and you will found out what is definitely super sexy about Easton!) THEN you have to read this!!! Oh and don't worry there is something special about the name of this book too Night Moves... loved that by the way!!! You also get to see more into the lives of the other characters from her first 2 gman books about Slate and Taz--who by the way are awesome stories too!!!
Thanks again Andrea for another hot and sexy ride you never disappoint me!! I hope for more from this series and this author in general!
