After the deaths of her husband and child, tragedies that she blames herself for, Andrea “Andy” Sheaver has shut herself off from the world. The only place she finds any relief from her shattered heart is Club Splendor, where she and her husband often frequented. There, Andy submits to pleasure and pain in order to feel something other than grief for a little while.
But Hunter Sullivan won’t stand idly by and watch Andy self-destruct. Her husband’s best friend, and the owner of Club Splendor, Hunter has kept his love for Andy hidden for years. He refuses to think of her at the club, cold and detached, looking for an easy fix to take away the pain in her heart. Hunter wants her to be vibrant in life again and sets out to prove he is exactly who she needs.
I will warn you that while reading this book you will feel a range of different emotions. It might even make you cry. It has some voyeurism and one scene is M/F/F. Has a little bit of BDSM.
Andrea “Andy” has had to live through something that some people would never be able to live through. She blames herself even though losing her son and husband wasn’t her fault. Her some Peter was killed by a drunk driver while Andy was driving and then a little after that her husband Patrick dies of a bad heart. She thinks her husband blamed her and that he died of a broken heart. Andy goes to Club Splendor to feel something and ends up being in a scene with another couple. She never thought Hunter would find out.
Hunter has loved Andy since her first laid eyes on her. Only thing is that the friend that he thinks as a brother feel in love with her. So he will stand back and be the godfather of their son. When Patrick and Peter dies he knows what Andy is going through. When he catches her in his club and finds out what happened, he knows it is time to act and get Andy into the land of the living again.
I could never imagine what it would feel like to lose my son and husband the way Andy did. I understand the feelings of guilt she would have because she is still alive. It gets worse when she realizes her feelings for Hunter is more than just friendship. This book make me feel all kinds of different emotions. The author did a wonderful job on her characters and bringing their feelings and emotions out in this book. It was a lot to put into a short read but I never thought that the story was rushed. This is a story that will pull at your heartstrings and make you want to read it again. I loved the ending and I couldn’t think of anything in this book that I would’ve wrote differently. I would recommend everyone read this book.
