It’s the beginning of a new term at Wyckham College, Oxford, and a fresh start for Lauren Cusack.

Her resolve is shaken when Alexander appears on her doorstep – he’s been completely torn apart by some devastating news. Lauren knows that she should stay away, but their chemistry is undeniable and she soon finds herself back in Alexander’s arms. Can Lauren handle the drama that comes with Alexander Hunt? Or will she have to sacrifice the most exhilarating passion she’s ever known . . . –


The Review

So it’s a new term and after how things ended with Alexander, Lauren is ready to get her focus back and not think about Alexander. But just when she thought she might never see him again her shows up at her room looking distraught over his fathers death. Lauren doesn’t know what else to do but be there for Alexander at this very difficult time.

She knows that things should not get complicated but with the attraction and passion between them it seems impossible and soon Lauren is pulled back into Alexander’s orbit. And this time its even deeper as she gets to meet his sister. Soon there is more drama than Lauren can handle with Emma and her love like issues and Valentina who is desperate to win Alexander back. With Alexander’s father now dead, he must make the choice to take over the family estate or go back to the army.

What did I like about the book? I like that we pick up where we left off and boy this book just has soo much drama. At every turn it just kept getting better. I could slowly see Lauren loosing a little of her self and it is soo easy for that to happen when you have a man like Alexander Hunt in your life.

What I didn’t like? I am trying to understand why we spent so much time getting to know Scott, he doesn’t even feature that much in the story, just some fleeting moments as a distraction if you ask me. Also Prof Rafe, what is his story creepy much?. Yes he is a perv we all had one of those at Uni but I think he was super irrelevant to everything happening. Also I am not being a prude but I doubt people in real life have that much sex in a day anybody agree with me?. I mean c’mon no matter how young you are I don’t think it can be that much.

Overall a really awesome book. I think this one was my favorite in the series with some really super sexy heat….. book 3 here we come.
