Review- 4 stars
Shania Ridgeway has been in love with her brother’s friend David McCullen all her life. The backstory between these two characters is very interesting. The Ridgeway’s adopted David into his family as a young boy just after his parents died. He has known Shania since she first opened her eyes as a baby. He has watched her grow from day one and has always felt a brotherly bond towards her. But when she gets older, those feelings begin to change. When Shania kisses David at her 14th birthday party and tells him how she feels about him, 21 year old David realizes that he needs to leave and distance himself as much as possible. He knows the life he lives is no life for Shania. See, David is a dominant and only does Dom/Sub relationships, and doesn’t feel that Shania should be involved with this aspect of his life. And, even though he knows he shouldn't, he can’t help feeling a little of the same way for Shania.
Let’s jump forward to Shania at age 21. Well, almost 21. The day before her birthday, David picks her up at the airport and suddenly realizes that she is no longer the little girl he remembered. She has turned into a hot beautiful woman. And Shania has come with a plan. She is determined to give her virginity to David and does everything she can to make that happen. What she doesn't plan for is David’s lifestyle, but because she loves him, she is willing to give it a try.
Now, I’m going to stop telling you what happens from here, because I don’t want to ruin the story. But just know that after all of that happens, the story takes a major turn with our heroine ending up in Greece. You will definitely enjoy it! As far as this book goes, for me, the story was a little slow to start, but was necessary to build an understanding of the characters. Other than that, I absolutely loved it. It takes you on twists and turns that are unexpected. The imagery that is written is wonderful and makes me what to see Greece even more than I already did. The supporting characters were also wonderful and I really want to see much more of them. Overall, a very enjoyable read. ~Lauren
He slid his wet lips to the inside of her knees, kissing and sucking. She arched her back, feeling hot and flustered. She wanted... She wanted...
“Oh David,” she moaned. “Please, please.”
“What do you want Shania?” he asked. His lips moved higher, kissing her right butt cheek, then her left. Then she felt a sharp pain. She tensed, bowing off the bed, tension filling her muscles. He bit her ass and bit her again, right where he had kissed. He gently licked the spots, soothing the pain. “Remember what I told you, Shania?” he asked. “A little pain and a lot of pleasure—hand in hand they go.”
Shania was beyond thinking or remembering. She could only feel. When she felt his tongue on her pussy, she stiffened. He licked from back to front.
“You should taste how sweet you are Shania,” he murmured as he gently sucked her clit into his mouth. Slowly he worked her peak with his tongue, increasing the suction as he slid a finger into her opening.
“Oh my God, David…Oh! Oh! I don’t know …David I want…”
“Let go Shania,” David said softly as he inserted a second finger into her hot little sheath. He began to scissor his fingers then curled and touched a spot she did not even know existed. Shania exploded!” Lights flashed and stars appeared. She shattered into a million pieces and fell forward on the bed oblivious to anything around her.

Shania was a Kentucky girl, raised in horse country, with racing in her blood and spirit in her soul. She set her sights on David at an early age, and had never wavered. He was her destiny... at least she thought so.David was a blend. Born in Texas, his roots were there no matter where he went. It was his solace, his place of restoration and peace. Kentucky was his second home though. He had spent more years in Versailles, KY than anywhere else in the world. He launched his business in Louisville, KY, and it was where he returned home to the people who loved him. He had always known the Ridgeways loved him, but passion was a whole different kind of emotion for him. He didn't know how to love like that. He had truly never belonged to anyone. He wasn't sure if he was capable of loving her.
Stephan was a Greek. He spent his whole life in that small, yet powerful part of the world. He wanted Shania from the time he first saw her, but his job was to protect her and guide her. How could he make the transition from employee to lover?
Antonio was a loyal company executive... or so Jack thought. He was Greek, but had spent most of his live traveling the world at the helm of the ship building division of Ridgeway, Inc. He owed the Ridgeway family a lot, and he always paid his debts.
Jack was a Kentucky boy, Shania's brother, and David's best friend. He had been raised side by side with David, who, although never formally adopted by the Ridgeways, had been like a brother to him. He headed up the family empire now that his father had retired. He and his wife, Josslyn, lived in Louisville.
