Mark Strong, a wealthy Chicago businessman, is brimming with confidence. He’s in total control. Nothing—and no one—escapes his notice. However, Mark carries a heavy, painful burden. After finding his fiancée with another man six years ago, he’s erected a fortress around his heart, unwilling to let himself fall in love again. But when enchanting Karma snares his gaze from across the room, he has no idea she will shatter his carefully ordered life.
What starts out as a casual flirtation takes a series of surprising turns as Mark and Karma embark on a sensual journey destined by fate. Mark is driven to know Karma, understand her…educate her, and Karma is his willing student, eager to experience the pleasure he promises. But when the student becomes the teacher, Mark has to make a choice between taking another chance on love or a future alone.
Let’s just say, this story didn’t waste any time capturing my attention. Right away this story dove in and let us get to know both Karma and Mark. We started to understand their little quirks and what shaped them. Consisntently throughout the story, I felt as if we got to know the characters more and on a deeper level. We were able to watch Karma grow and discover who she is. We watched her self-esteem grown and her confidence take on new levels. It was quite interesting to see how her interactions with men changed. And Mark – well, watching him was an experience, too. He went from shying off from relationships to becoming more open to the opportunity. And then… well… yea. Now we have to wait and see what happens! I’m very eager to see how book 2 goes and find out how their relationship changes and how their growth impacts that!
